Taiwan Votes to Retain Freedom From China – Tsai Ing-wen Easily Wins Re-election…

The results of a massive turnout vote in Taiwan reflect the country wishes to remain free from the overbearing influence of communist China.

(Hong Kong Free Press) […] Taiwan’s incumbent leader Tsai Ing-wen has won Saturday’s presidential election, defeating her Beijing-friendly rival Han Kuo-yu by a wide margin.

[…] With 8.1 million votes as of 10:30pm, Tsai won the highest number of votes of any presidential candidate in Taiwan’s history of democratic elections. Han, on the other hand, received just over 5.5 million votes, according to the Central Election Commission (CEC).

Tsai stated in her victory speech: “I want to once again call upon Beijing authorities to remind them that peace, clarity, democracy and dialogue are key to positive cross-strait interactions and long-term development,” she added. “I also hope that Beijing authorities understand that democratic Taiwan and our democratically-elected government will not concede to threats and intimidation.”  (more)

    Taiwan is eventually doomed to be absorbed by China.
    It will be the war Xi has up his sleeve to jingo-ise a future restless, possibly revolutionary Chinese population who have money but are politically caged.

    I know Taiwan is done when I see Taiwan’s ordinary line soldiers covering their faces.

      CHINA, or at least CCP rule OF China, is whats “DOOMED”; its only a matter of TIME.
      Taiwan will NEVER be absorbed by mainland, CCP controlled China.
      Bullies don’t want a FIGHT, what they want is to intimidate, by threatening a fight they have NO INTENTION of actually engaging in.
      And China is a Bully, nothing more.
      And at this point, like Iranian regime, and EU, dead regime walking.
      Its only a matter of time,…

    • Communists will forever want to ‘annex’ any state, province, colony, district or neighbor for whatever reason they can invent. Of course, that ‘annexation’ is only desirable when the target is a rich, enterprising wealthy neighbor. Socialist/Communists are simply maggots wanting feed on what they don’t have.

            Got so riled up forgot main point.

            Marxist derived theory is a useful ACADEMIC lens, one of many, to analyse & interpret human society.

            The PROBLEM is the Boomer generation’s politics of Ho Chi Minh, etc
            Their politics infuse & distort social, familial, in fact it’s globalised into their higher level thinking.

            replicated at the doctoral level, I know this. doubtless at law school also.

            They’ve trained & mentored intellectually stunted conformists to carry on their STUPID legacy of despotic statism through bureaucracy and police state.

            Yeah for intellectual integrity,
            Yeah for pragmatic reality
            History matters! ♥️🇺🇸
            Rant over. Respectfully. Ann. 😂

      Not exactly, MKBV. Taiwan’s forces have nuclear weapons and a great delivery system.
      If mainland invades you can be sure that the Five Gorges Dam system and many other public high visibility strategic targets will be blown to dust. The PRC know this too well

      Hong Kong is Taiwan’s future if it joins China. That is the billboard flashing for all to see. Only an idiot would think that those in Taiwan don’t know this. Chinese are not like Americans that swallow propaganda taught in public schools by teachers that are gullible fools.

      Xi and Hong Kong merely made the rest of the world know, clearly, that China lies through its teeth when it says (to paraphrase Obama), ‘If you like your freedom, you can keep your freedom.’

      So, Globalists see Taiwan as eventually part of Communist China. Won’t happen. Sorry.

      Maybe if Communists give up China…. fat chance of that. Communists will strangle their country to death before yielding power. Like Venezuela. The only hope of China is full on uprising. Not likely.

      Only an act of God will fix China. One never knows what God will do.

    Taiwan has come a long long way, many changes. When I lived there years ago it was still under martial law. I remember there a man who held up the Central Bank of China with a toy gun on a Monday, and was executed the following Thursday. The newspaper article quipped “presumably the firing squad will be armed with the real McCoy”.

    Of course, censorship was heavy. Many of the “f” English language encyclopedias in libraries and schools had been confiscated because the article on Formosa often referred to Chiang Kai Shek as a warlord, which was really not off the mark.

    When the movie The Graduate played the Chinese subtitles were changed to change the mother/daughter relationship to two sisters. The movie Sand Pebbles with Steve McQueen was filmed in Danshui Taiwan, I believe, but never shown in Taiwan. I heard it was because the Chinese characters in the film were denigrated as slopeheads. Of course, Westerners like myself were routinely referred to as “ato ga” or “tall noses”.

    There was plenty of propaganda against the “bandit” Mao. But no pictures. Nobody actually knew what he looked like. I had a picture which I took of his wax statue in the wax museum in London. People heard that I had it, and would ask to see it. I finally lied and said I lost it, was getting a little nervous.

      I’m here atm on a business trip, and it’s a lovely country, though the domestic political situation is far more complex than DPP good KMT bad. I’m in a province that is mostly DPP yet elected a KMT mayor a few years ago. As always, politics is local. The only notable thing about this election is how much the situation in HK swung the election. The DPP was down significantly before China misstepped on HK, setting up at least an entire generation of young people that will never parley with the PRC. If it hadn’t been for HK the KMT would likely have won. Indeed their candidate is far more of a Trumpian candidate than the DPP’s, who is broadly unpopular, but on the right side of popular sentiment. In the long run, though, this is likely moot: I don’t think anyone here really thinks the ROC can hold out forever, but if they play their cards right they might be able to be absorbed under more favorable terms and a much different political climate. They’re good people, and I wish them all the best.

    Yet 5.5 million Taiwanese apparently voted to live in such a hellish society.

      It would not be the only place that uses confusion, to win. (this time, more widened up to the ploys…but, far from all.)

      The (media) propaganda machine is quite the election influencer (for many, not all).

      In the U.S in 2000, the choice was obvious to some, but the razor thin outcome had people analyzing ballot chads.

      In 2008, bo won, and having people still not learned, the outcome was repeated in 2012 to get enough electoral college votes,
      go bo again in 2012.

      Were some people in the U.S. confused, or mislead?

      As Grandpa said to Grandson over 35 years ago:
      ” don’t take any wooden nickels”
      (Whatever the words or misactions)

      In other words
      “Prove all things,
      Hold fast to that which is good.”

    “They must be confused”

    Confused by purpose, and by design. Brainwashed. “Influenced” is a kinder, gentler term.

    Nothing new here. We didn’t win the Korean war because the Koreans knew how to do brainwashing highly effectively during that war, and we didn’t.

    Bullets and bombs are now obsolete. All it takes is relentless brainwashing (ahem, “influence”) brought to you by a MSM that benefits enormously, financially, to carry it out. And don’t forget the added ingredient – to make the influence sweetly entertaining, too. Irresistible. Simply irresistible.

    Smart phones do that too. Just ask Mr. Zuckerberg. (Zucker in German = sugar). Ah! How sweet it is! Facebook. Twitter. Can’t live without them.

    Wide screen TV? ANY TV, tiny or large? Can’t live without it? Probably not. Can we decide and limit what we see or hear? Can we learn when to shut these conduits of information and entertainment off? Nancy Reagan said it best. “Just say NO”.

    Can we ever say “NO” to media? Or have we all been brainwashed to be OCD by now?

    I do know most Americans really DO NOT understand Taiwan’s current political environment. DPP stands for, Democratic Progressive Party and that should tell you everything about the party. It was wholly supported by Democrats of USA, remember Al Gore went to Taiwan to collect money for re-election? Remember Clinton went to Taiwan to collect money after his presidency?
    Taiwan is the first country in Asia allow same-sex marriage and now is the heaven for homosexuals in the world and to have FREE medical insurance (Taiwan’s Free National Health Care).

    Guess what KMD stands for, KouMing Dong (Citizen’s Party) and it was supported by President Reagan and it was the party fought with USA against Japan during WWII, remember Flying Tigers?

    I support Taiwan but I do not support DPP. Remember the Chinese Spy went to Australia for political Asylum, it was FAKE and directed by DPP for the presidential campaign. DPP is the most corrupted political party in ROC’s history.
