China rewrites history, to sound of scholarly laugh-track

Get this.  Apparently Genghis Khan enabled “cross-cultural exchanges” and set the footing for the Renaissance!

“He brought cultural progress that helped liberate the Europeans from the bondage of theology — in this sense, his expeditions served as a catalyst for the Renaissance,” he said.

Holy Cow! 

Because we all know that the Renaissance was an era liberated from the bondage of theology… (wink wink, nudge nudge).  Pardon me, while I walk around the corner and laugh my guts out.

(Walks around corner)

(Cackles uncontrollably)

(Wiping eyes dry)

Whoo, that was good.  What else ya got?

——-

Seriously, if this is what they’re teaching over there, and it’s not simply a random slap at Falun Gong, I could go get rich giving lecture seminars right now.  So I gotta figure this is either an entry for Best of Chinese Communism, vol. 4, or a shaded political job.
