Lien says DPP taught ‘wrong thinking’

GOOD OLD DAYS:In two speeches, the former vice president accused the then-DPP government’s policies of spoiling the nation’s youth, before hitting out at Ko Wen-je

DPP spokesperson Huang Di-ying (黃帝穎) said that the remarks about Sunflower protesters shows that the former vice president’s ideas go against the global tide of democracy, and are unlikely to benefit his son’s campaign.

The Taiwan Citizen Union’s youth volunteer group convener, Syu Wei-ting (許韋婷), dismissed Lien Chan’s comments about young people.

“People from older generations, not the younger ones, should be the ones taking responsibility for many of the problems [Lien Chan said are] causing ‘chaos’ in Taiwan right now,” Syu said.

“Young people’s use of media and Internet tools has only revealed existing problems, not created new ones,” Syu said. “In addition, when we were growing up, we still devoted some of our studies to the history and geography of China, learning a vast amount of information that is completely unrelated to our homeland.”
