Young Taiwanese songstress waves Republic of China flag; washed-up elderly Taiwanese musician dutifully reports her to his Beijing masters.
Accusations that the Taiwanese member of the South Korean pop group TWICE, Chou Tzu-yu (周子瑜), was a “pro-Taiwanese independence” activist has caused China’s Huawei Technologies Co (華為) to demand LG Uplus drop Chou from endorsing its Y6 chain of cellphones.
Hey, remember that "1992 Consensus" -- the one which allows that there's only one China, but China & Taiwan are both free to define that One China however they wish?
You didn't really believe that fairy-tale bullshit now, did you?
If you were stupid enough to believe it, just picture poor little 16-year-old Chou Tzu-yu, who in her innocence, thought it was OK to define One China as Taiwan, and wave her country's flag.
Let us return to learn a little more about Huang An, shall we?
Huang, despite being Taiwanese by birth, began developing his career in China in the late 1990s. Huang has made a name for himself in recent years by informing the Chinese government and netizens about what he regards as pro-Taiwanese independence individuals and their activities. [emphasis added]
Bravo, Huang An. It's not everyone who can boast of possessing Taiwan's most punchable face:
Once Huang's treachery became known, he immediately ran under the skirts of "former" Taiwanese mob boss Chang An-le.
Because, you know: punchable face.
Meanwhile, Huang has returned to Taiwan ahead of the Lunar New Year holiday and is said to be fearing for his safety [from angry Taiwanese]. Huang has reportedly written to former Bamboo Union (竹聯幫) gang leader Chang An-le (張安樂), known as “the White Wolf,” asking for protection.
There is a story - probably apocryphal - which says that some years after sentencing Socrates to death, the citizens of Athens repented of their decision. Unable to restore life to the old man after the fact, they did the next best thing: they shunned one of his prosecutors.
This was more severe than it sounds, for it went beyond mere social disapprobation. As part of this informal punishment, they refused to have anything to do with him -- not even buying or selling or engaging in the simplest of commerce.
Under these conditions, the prosecutor of Socrates was unable to procure so much as a crust of bread to sate his hunger, and is said to have starved to death within a week.
Just throwin' that out there...
UPDATE: A stunned and pallid Chou Tzu-yu bows and apologizes, lifelessly reading a scripted self-criticism straight out of the Mao Tse-tung era.
It's like watching an ISIS captive ritually denouncing his home country at gunpoint. About the only thing missing is her eyelids blinking out in Morse code:
Of course, I don't know Morse code, so maybe I missed it.
UPDATE #2: Huang An represents Chinese nationalism at its finest.
Call me crazy, but I don't think the Communist Party's brutal decision to demand this the day before Taiwan's presidential election is going to win the CCP's preferred candidate Eric Chu (KMT) any votes.
This is the "friendly" cross-Strait relations the KMT has been bragging about?
UPDATE #3: Like many other snakes, Huang An has a detachable lower jaw. In this photo, the ophidian Huang illustrates the girth of the Chinese Communist phalluses he routinely fellates.
