New Red Guard Movement in Taipei (II)
The protesters were asked by Shih Ming Teh to wear red clothes to show their angers at President Chen. However, the group of red protesters suddenly become the red threats to people who hold different opinions. The red protesters now call themselves the "red army" and occupy the plaza of Taipei main station. The protesters red identity now identifies who's their ally and who's not. The red army aroused people's memory of Mao Zedong's "Red Guard".
Several violent attacks from emotional red army have serious jeopardize Taiwanese freedom of choice. Several elder men and women who show their disagreement on Shih's campaign have been attacked by red army when waiting for buses in front of Taipei main station.
In today's TV talk show, Dong Chi Shen (董智森), a news commentator from TVBS news station, threatened Dr. Stephen M. Yang that he would group an array of pan-blue's red army to surround the American Institute in Taiwan just because Mr. Dong believed that Dr. Stephen M. Yang, the director of the Taipei Office of the American Institute in Taiwan, has sent manipulated information about Shih's campaign back to Washington D.C. The US government has long been the strong supporter of Taiwan. Dong Chi Shen's provocation immediately put American's offshore institution in danger and thus harm the partnership between Taiwan and United States. Dong Chi Shen's provocation carelessly reflected PRC's(Chinese) intention to disintegrate the mutual trust between Taiwan and the United States. Dong should be put into the list of global terrorists if he intents to do so. How can President George W. Bush tolerate Dong's threat to American embassy?
Taiwanese people have fought so hard to achieve democracy. President Chen's democratic reform gave recall motion and civil referendum a legitimate power but pan-blue coalition resisted any form of constitutional reform and even added strict restriction on Taiwanese civil referendum. Now, pan-blue pays the price of its anti-democracy standpoint but Taiwanese people cannot afford the pan-blue's street demonstration to corrupt their constitutional process.
