|The former president|
Right, this guy.
Remember him? （The one in the middle, before he started to look like a white decorative gourd).
“After the DPP gained control of both the executive and legislative branches of government, it has completely transformed into a fascist regime. As the party in power, it has been persecuting the opposition and making the public foot its bills,” Ma said.
No, like, seriously lol.
How much of a jag-off do you have to be to not see the hypocrisy of this statement?
This guy, apparently.
Yeah, this guy.
That's the one.
The one who pays tearful homages to a former dictator as though he were a great man.
The guy who worked for actual literal no-exaggeration dictators, who now acts like they worked tirelessly in service to Taiwan, who cultivated an image of being squeaky clean while being corrupt the whole time, the one who used his tenure as president to ram all sorts of garbage through the legislature and then lose his temper like a big fat baby when the people stood up and said "enough". The one accused of working professionally to report on opponents of the Chiang dictatorship while a student at Harvard. The one who, despite knowing full well the horrors Taiwan has experienced at the hands of the KMT, talked about the "moral principles" of the party that have guided them "for the past 120 years". As though most of those years were not spent as a brutal dictatorship helmed by a murderous despot.
Sure, whatever, okay bro.
What I can't get over is that in 2012 the voters chose him for re-election over now-president Tsai. I think it might have been on account of his having a penis, but also the tendency of Taiwan to re-elect its leaders and choose the seemingly safest way forward in terms of who they put into the highest office had something to do with it.
Four years later they were all "oops sorry lol the nerdy lady was better after all" and elected her, and the guy everyone now hates for acting quite literally like a minor warlord in a feudal society is bitching about her being the problem?
And this ostensibly not-as-bad-a-guy agreed with him, for some fucking reason:
Shut up, Ma Ying-jiu. Go home, nobody likes you and nobody wants to hear your garbage.
*unconfirmed, but who even cares
