Birds of a feather

Taiwan's pan-blue opposition parties are up to their disgusting tricks in full force once again. All day Monday and Tuesday, local news has been reporting an ad placed in the Washington, DC newspaper Roll Call calling Taiwan's president Chen Shui-bian "Taiwan's Hitler." This is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.

The pan-blues are made up of the KMT (Kuomintang, or Chinese Nationalist Party) and the breakaway-then-realigned PFP (People First Party) chaired respectively by Lien Chan and James Soong, the losing candidates in this year's presidential elections. The KMT came to Taiwan with the former dictator Chiang Kai-shek. James Soong is the former Minister of Information responsible for supressing the use of local languages in Taiwan during Taiwan's "White Terror" period. If anyone could be compared to a dictator, it would be these guys.

If Chen Shui-bian were a dictator, there never would have been a recount. People like Sisy Chen, Jaw Shaw-kong, and Li Tao -- who criticize Chen all day and night -- wouldn't have their own TV and radio shows. Chiu Yi would be under the jail. And if Chen were "Taiwan's Hitler," all the Chinese nationals in Taiwan would be in concentration camps or dead. The pan-blue supporters who rioted for weeks in front of the Presidential Office after the election would have been mowed down with machine guns.

But none of that has happened, and the pan-blues can only resort to fabrication.

Roll Call's executive editor Morton Kondracke has been covered many times by the awesome folks at Media Matters for America for "falling afoul of the facts." It's not surprising that the pan-blues would choose to place their ad in his newspaper.

The pan-blues deny being behind the ad and a parallel e-mail campaign which seems to ignore and even deny both the implied threat of the 500 to 600 Chinese missiles aimed in our direction and the explicit threats toward Taiwan made by China, but it wreaks of the desperate arguments used in the pan-blues' incessant refusal to accept their defeat in the presidential election. PFP legislator Lee Ching-hwa even appeared in the Legislative Yuan yesterday wearing a "No Justice, No President" T-shirt.

It's like déjà vu all over again!
For deeper insight into the depraved minds of the pan-blues, you should read all of the postings on this blog starting with the one following my participation in the February 28, 2004 Hand-in-Hand Rally, then working forward from March 19 (the election eve assassination attempt on Taiwan's president and vice-president) through at least May 20 (inauguration day) -- during which I blogged almost exclusively about issues related to Taiwan -- to see how this blog covered the events in real-time and from a local perspective.
