NEW YORK — New York is seeing red over the decision to turn the city's highest beacon — and one of America's symbols for free enterprise — into a shining monument honoring China's communist revolution Wednesday night.

The Empire State Building is set to be illuminated in red and yellow lights to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the bloody communist takeover.

Well that's just bad taste now isn't it?

I mean, ok it is pretty impressive that China has communism and capitalism and it seems to actually work, however, it's not the US' obligation to honor such a thing.

Especially considering the US attempted to fight off communism for like 20 years.

Very strange, who made this decision?
