Oath Keepers的创始人Stewart Rhodes本月以“煽动阴谋罪”判刑18年，法官宣判时斥责了他的犯罪动机：“不喜欢新上来的那个家伙（按：新总统拜登）。”当年刘晓波被中共定下的罪行之一是“对政府不满”，获判刑期11年。罪名类同，Stewart比晓波判得重。如此下去，被判“煽颠罪”的恐怕不会是数百或上千人了，或许我这个没有坐过共产党大牢的人，也会在某一天尝到美国监狱的滋味。
Follow-up report on “Li Nanyang sued the Customs” (106)
——Wake up America
Asked what keeps him awake at night in an interview with CBS News this week, the former president said “the degree to which we now have a divided conversation, in part because we have a divided media, a splintered media.” He noted, “When I was coming up, you had three TV stations … and people were getting a similar sense of what is true and what isn’t, what was real and what was not.” Now, “we almost occupy different realities.”
Obviously, Obama believes that a society should have “one voice only”, it is a normal one. Now, even though mainstream media are just copying what Democrats voicing, fewer ignorant media are still talking about what they believe, which absolutely is unacceptable. Obama dared to say so, because that the CBS anchor facing him was nodding vigorously and of course the CBS audiences would admire his “brilliant” opinion as well. Obama has been boiling the frog in mild water for so long, “socialism is good” sirup has soaked in the body of American society.
My father’s Li Rui Oral History was confiscated by the customs of Beijing airport on Oct. 29, 2013. The Third Intermedia Court, Beijing accepted my lawsuit against the customs in June next year. The lawsuit has been continuing forever. Li Rui was a member of the CCP till his death, the party covered his remains with party’s flag that is soaked in human blood. But why party man Li Rui’s memoir which recalled his whole life following the CCP, be defined as a banned book rather than a Red Book? It is quite simple, because under Li Rui’s pen, what is true is not true by party’s pen. Those party leaders, Mao Zedong, Gao Gang, Chen Yun, Hu Yaobang, Zhao Ziyang, Jiang Zemin, Li Peng and Xi Jiping … whose images Li Rui drafted, do not match what party has painted. Li Rui’s writing will divide conversation and cost a splintered society; the consequence would be horrible. Li Rui’s book must be banned and forbidden to enter the border of P. R. China.
So, I say, what Obama said to CBS is the same thought of the CCP. Obama wishes he would be respected as Mao Zedong whom he is so fond of. He hopes the Democrat holds the power as the CCP does perpetually. For the sake of that, he believes that controlling the right to speak is number one among those important issues. What is true bigwig of the democratic party say, all the media must echo; what is real bigwig of democratic party say, Americans must agree. But is there freedom for Americans?
Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes was sentenced 18 years after “Jan. 6 seditious conspiracy conviction”. U.S. District Judge Amit P. Mehta addressed Rhodes directly: “what was the motive? You didn’t like the new guy,” noting that “just because someone supported the former president doesn’t mean they’re a White nationalist.” What Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo was convicted? “He was dissatisfied with the government.” He was sentenced to 11 years. The similar charge, but Stewart was treated worse than Xiaobo. Should it go on like this, there will be not only hundreds or thousands of people convicted as “incitement”, the people like me who never tasted life in CCP’s prison, someday might learn about life in an American cell.
Wake up Americans as it is not too late now! As the pendulum swings to its extreme end as it is in China, to make it swing back, the price might be millions of lives.
