China orders Tibetans 'reeducated' about Dalai Lama

Does this smack of the Cultural Revolution to anyone else? For some reason the U.S. seems unconcerned about this pattern. Same old China, emerging economic power or not.

The LA Times says:
Buddhist monks, civil servants and public school students have been instructed to attend special classes in the virtues of Chinese rule and the evils of their exiled leader, the Dalai Lama. In these classes, the Tibetans read and recite from texts that denounce the Dalai Lama as a "political reactionary" and a "betrayer of the motherland."
