Apparently now not only Taiwanese are tired of these people, but even tourists from China find them intolerable.
A YouTube user captured footage of a tourist from China talking to the communists:
- “Many of us from Mainland China don’t want to see the way you are now. You’re acting like the Red Guards during the Cultural Revolution.”
- “I can’t believe such thing would happen in Taiwan. You know how we Mainland Chinese see you? We frown upon you. Your behavior is unbelievable. The civilization here (in Taiwan) is good, isn’t it?”
However, the tourist was dissuaded by a policeman and even threatened with deportation. But he emphasized: “I didn’t speak foul language or swear at anyone. What does it have to do with the police?”
Taiwanese bloggers have been sharing the video and praising this brave Chinese man. Many of them agreed with his comments, saying things like:
The man was quite rational and what he said was reasonable. How could the policeman be rude to him?
Presumably he must have known he was likely to attract attention after airing his opinion. That’s why bloggers said he had been very courageous.
The video was removed on April 15.
