The KMT is poison

By Chen Ming-chung

I wish the Taiwanese would stop begging the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) to change ("Ma puts KMT on dangerous ground," Sept. 6, page 8).

Localization makes no difference to them. Do you think the KMT is worrying about dividing Taiwanese society? Or do you think they intend to split the Taiwanese to make room for Chinese Communist Party front (CCP)?

Maybe the article's author Jou Yi-chung (周奕成) is asking the wrong questions. From what I can see, Taipei Mayor Ma Ying-jeou (馬英九) is thumbing his nose, telling "you" Taiwanese, "I'm the boss because I am Chinese. I've got the pretty face. I've got the money and property to sell. I am not allowing independence. I've got the CCP and their missiles behind me."

He knows very well, even if he starts kneeling and kissing the ground proclaiming localization, he will not be believed. Former KMT chairman Lien Chan (連戰) and People First Party Chairman James Soong (宋楚瑜) tried that and failed. They know Taiwanese voters are no longer that easily deceived. Instead, this "Taiwan discourse" is his new poisoned wine in Lien's old bottle.

Instead, the Democratic Progressive Party should concentrate on asking the question: Do you want your future and your children's future in the hands of these not-so-heavily veiled accomplices to the communists in the name of Chinese nationalism, a Chinese glory that does not include "you" Taiwanese, or Tibetans, because "we" Chinese will decide if "you" Taiwanese can be independent?

Use your votes to kick all these rascals out of office. It's the only way.
