Original title: Cai English 48 hours silence bombing Taiwan, the Kuomintang question: Are you the "Japanese governor in Taiwan"?
Zhang Xueting, a special correspondent for the Global Times in Taipei, said that "no one is entitled to be deprived of the dignity of a person," a term used by Taiwan's leader Cai Ying-wen in his 2015 recommendation of the documentary "The Song of Reed". However, when the bronze statue of the "comfort woman" kicked by Japanese right-wingers was exposed on the 10th, she remained silent. The people of the island questioned Cai Yingwen in anger. "Is it the president of the Republic of China or the governor of Japan in Taiwan?" In sharp contrast to Cai's indifference is the fierce indignation of the island's people and the "cyber army" of the mainland, which has fought against them. Geng Shuang, a spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, said on the 11th that he hoped Japan would face up to the concerns of its Asian neighbors and the international community and properly handle the relevant issues with a responsible attitude. "Those who humiliate others will humiliate themselves."
Cai Yingwen has not yet come forward to respond.
A bronze statue of "comfort women" in Tainan has been exposed by Fujii Shihiko, a representative of Japan's right-wing National Movement for the Truth of Comfort Women, which has intensified civil protests on the island. On the morning of the 11th, several Kuomintang legislators and women's representatives dressed in black held a press conference, highlighting this matter is to fight for the rights and interests of "comfort women" the darkest incident. Apart from sharply condemning Japan, they also criticized the withdrawal of Taiwan's first female leader, Cai Yingwen. Since the incident, regardless of how the island calls, Cai did not appear to respond, just in the social platform to sun office photos. Taiwan's "presidential palace" said in a low-key voice that the "Ministry of Foreign Affairs" responded, "the Ministry of Foreign Affairs" after 10 appeals for rational treatment, 11 also downplayed that Fujii Shihiko "is not civilized enough", but "do not want to affect the overall progress of Taiwan-Japan relations".
It is worth noting that Xie Changting, Taiwan's "representative to Japan" who was criticized for his inadequate assistance to Taiwanese tourists these days, finally spoke out on the 11th. He first expressed his consistent position of "condemning violence" and condemning the acts of sabotaging Taiwan-Japan friendship. "But Fujii's acts are not equal to the Japanese nor to the Japanese government," he also declared. Turning this into a political event is not conducive to Taiwan Japan relations.
Duan Xinyi, chairman of Taiwan's Chinese Language Education Promotion Association, wrote on the 11th that a bronze statue of Batianyi, the Japanese, had been broken and that "Premier" Lai Qingde apologized in Japanese and rushed to repair it in 12 days. The bronze statue of Chiang Kai-shek was destroyed and the coffin was painted red, leaving nothing to write about. When the first "comfort woman" statue was unveiled in Tainan, Hsieh Changting questioned it, fearing it might trigger anti-Japanese sentiment. Fujii not only kicked all Taiwanese faces, but also the Taiwanese authorities who had just donated NT $20 million to Japan. Kuomintang spokesman Hong Mengkai criticized the authorities on the 11th, saying that his voice wanted "transformation justice", but he dared not defend the rights and interests of Taiwan's "comfort women." Is Cai Ying-wen the President of the Republic of China or the Governor of Japan in Taiwan?
The Japanese right-wing clown is still crazy.
Fujii Shihiko's National Campaign for the Truth of Comfort Women was founded in 2013 to defend Japan's reputation on the issue of comfort women. In a statement published on the 10th in Facebook, Fujii said he did not kick the bronze statue because he stretched his feet from Japan to Tainan after flying for a long time. He also pointed out that "the Kuomintang maliciously processed images in an attempt to develop it into a diplomatic issue as a tool for the election campaign". For such an excuse, Taiwan's public opinion ridiculed "even dogs do not believe it." On the 11th, the organization changed its name and affirmed with the parties, such as public videos to understand the facts, will explain its position to the outside world in the near future.
Although Fujii seems to be "resentful" to the outside world, he quickly deleted his social media account, but still rant at home, pointing to the mainland and Japan's domestic media objective coverage of the "comfort women" issue. Taiwan's "letter media" reported on the 11th that Fujii contributed to Japan's "Zakzak electronic newspaper" under the "Shimbun Shimbun," saying that the bronze statue behind the words "comfort women 200,000 to 400,000" and "forcibly imposed" is very different from the "whitening" that the Japanese right-wing forces have been trying to "wash". Fujii even took the opportunity to slander the mainland in his article, saying that the bronze statue of "comfort women" in "pro-Japanese" Taiwan "may be behind the political propaganda of the Chinese side" in an attempt to block cooperation between Japan, the United States and Taiwan.
Many people in Taiwan can't swallow this tone.
The ambiguous attitude of the DPP to the "comfort women" issue is not surprising. In the 2016 election, although Cai expressed that "actively negotiate with the Japanese side to compensate for the grievances suffered by the previous generation", he did not take any action after taking office, only in 2017, when he wrote a memorial to the "comfort woman," he said, "We have done all the things we promised you." When the Kuomintang legislator Jiang Wanan's office reviewed the "comfort women" budget, it was found that the "Asia-East Pacific Department" of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs had a budget to help Japan claim compensation for the victims of "comfort women" of Taiwanese nationality, but it has continued to decrease in the past three years.
It is understood that the Kuomintang has drafted a "comfort women's reputation recovery and compensation bill", if the "comfort women" bronze statue discriminatory acts, can be sentenced to fixed-term imprisonment of less than one year. Tainan City Councilor Xie Longjie and others proposed to sue Fujii for damage, although he has left Taiwan, but "will not stop at this point." According to the Immigration Department, if a person brings a criminal suit against a Japanese citizen, he or she will wait for the judicial organ to investigate the facts and decide whether to prohibit his or her entry into the country, or be classified as an unwelcome object who does not apply to visa-free entry to Taiwan. On the 11th, the Women's Rescue Foundation, which has long supported "comfort women", issued a statement calling on the relevant units to ascertain the facts as soon as possible and stressing that "there will be no retreat due to any unfriendly behavior".
According to the island's media reports, from 10 to 11, the mainland's "Internet Army" in "Japan-Taiwan Exchange Association" Facebook page in a Chinese-Japanese bilingual "wash", many Taiwan media to "for Taiwan out of breath" this report. Many netizens denounced that "you kicked not only the bronze statue, but also all of us Chinese" and called for "compatriots on both sides of the Strait to join hands" and "ask the Japanese authorities to apologize".
