And now the Taiwanese film festival

Published by at 7:44 am under Censorship,Nationalism,Taiwan

Taiwanese organizers in Kaohsiung, Taiwan’s second largest city, plan to show the controversial film, “Ten Conditions of Love” next month, sparking outrage in the Chinese hacker community once again.  Given the fact that it is Taiwan, it is doubly outrageous. 

The film’s showing in Melbourne last month sent Chinese hackers on a mini-rampage, see here, here, here and here.

Now all eyes turn to the Taiwanese film festival:

Anonymous hackers have attacked a Taiwan film festival over plans to screen a documentary on the US-based leader of China’s predominantly Muslim Uighur minority, festival organizers said Tuesday.

A message, posted on a blog run by one of the organizers of the Kaohsiung Film Festival, blamed Rebiya Kadeer for recent bloody unrest in northwest China’s Xinjiang region, which is home to the Turkic-speaking Uighurs.

“I don’t know if you heard about the violence (in Xinjiang) and if you know how many people were left homeless. It is all because of that woman,” said the message, referring to Kadeer.

    Here’s a story:

    So someone comes and beats someone bloody to a pulp. The cops are called. They arrest the assaulting person. The jury hears about the crime in the court. They are disgusted.

    The guy says, “Well, he did me wrong first”.

    Nobody believes him.

    Taking vengeance in your own hands does not prove your case. It does the opposite of that. It makes you out to be the victimizer.

    Even if someone did do wrong, you have sunk now to their level and are as guilty as them. They won.

    I am not Muslim, but I believe in the freedom of religion. People need choices. They have a right to have choices.

    Doing them harm only gives them reasons to do harm back.

    There is no reasoning in any of that.

    Everybody is on the same side as everybody else as a member of the human race. Good people try and help people less knowledgeable then themselves, they do not try and harm them. This is because good people know the better good.

    Very simple truths.
