Taiwan's election culture has never improved in the past 30 years, but has further deteriorated. On the 22nd, the KMT 2020 candidate, Korea Yu, comforted a crying baby girl and kissed the baby girl's forehead, which led to the DPP's online army to blame.
First, a doctor named Kang Jiang put online a photo of a baby with rashes and a photo of a Korean baby girl on the Internet and called it "health education". At the same time, Guan Biling, a representative of the DPP public opinion, said that "children are not toys that are teased by adults, and they must respect small and very small children. Before they report the baby, they must be tested. The baby should cry and not hold her, let alone the baby Crying to take pictures. ".
Later, the baby girl's father, Mr. Wang, issued a handwritten statement on the 23rd saying that he was very embarrassed about Korean Yu and thanked Korean Yu for his efforts to soothe his daughter in the process. In addition, it was observed throughout the picture that it was the mother of the baby girl who took it to South Korea's Yu personally, rather than the "hard hug" described by specific media and politicians.
Now, the child's father is also considering filing a complaint with the doctor and apologizes for the trouble of South Korean Yu, but Taiwan ’s media and online public opinion still does not miss Korean Yu. The author, as a father, was so angry and sorry to see such farce and see chaos in Taiwan politicians and the media. At each election, you can see the ugliest side of Taiwan ’s human nature. Is such a reincarnation really good for Taiwan? Is it healthy for the next generation in Taiwan? Is such a system and such media chaos really good?
Looking at this matter calmly, not only reflects Taiwan's bad election culture, but also directly reflects the disability of democracy. Isn't the so-called "election" the choice of talent and ability? But today politicians are unscrupulous in their elections. It is their successful election that has directly caused Taiwan's governance failure. Therefore, Taiwan ’s democratic system is really sick, and all Taiwan compatriots must reflect on it: Is this political system and a society with unlimited internal consumption really what we want?
