Shooting down "Bulletgate" -- Part 13

When truth and justice bite you on the ass, just cry "unfair!"

How many lies can the pan-blues squeeze into a short paragraph, a few photos, and a simple caption? I'm about to show you.

They're hopeless, and page 12 of "Bulletgate" once again demonstrates this:
Hope for Justice

The opposition candidates, Lien Chan and James Soong, have filed a court procedure to nullify the results of the election due to these and many other irregularities. The following are some details on these crucial issues.

Perhaps the headbands should read instead, "Hi, I'm a walking contradiction!" How's that for "irregular"? Well, I suppose it jibes with their repeated references to their so-called "peaceful" protests.

In my Chinese-English dictionary, "jìng zùo" is actually translated as: "to sit still with a peaceful mind; to sit still as a form of therapy." Although I would not deny that the pan-blues need therapy, their protests were neither quiet nor peaceful. Go back to Part 7 of this shootdown to read an annotated laundry list of pan-blue violence.

Besides the ones we're shown in the "Bulletgate" photos, what other kinds of people were at these protests? Let's see. People pretending to be active military officers. Gangsters. Violent mobs. Go back to Part 8 of this shootdown to see how "irregular" the pan-blues are.

Recent history
A little over a week ago, Taiwan's High Court threw out the pan-blues' second lawsuit attempting to annul the results of the March 20, 2004 presidential election. The pan-blues were bitten on the ass, but it seems that they didn't even bother to turn around and see what bit them. That would be more painful than even the bite itself.

As I mentioned in an earlier post about this, the judge who presided over the case is an unabashed pan-blue supporter, yet the pan-blues are continually making nonsensical accusations that Chen Shui-bian controls the judiciary.

But wait! What about the "details" that page 12 of "Bulletgate" promised? Well, they're coming up in the next section, but as usual, you can rest assured that the few facts there will be floating in a cesspool of the sort of lies, distortions, and crackpot theories that arise from such desperation.
