The original title: Cai Yingwen, in order to solicit votes to provoke cross-strait rivalries, netizens on the island were angry: We don't want "Taiwan independence" but economy.
Cui Mingxuan, a special correspondent for the Global Times in Taipei, saw the "nine-in-one election" on November 24 in a hurry. Cai Yingwen, the leader of Taiwan, urged his fellow Americans to "let the world see whether Taiwanese would choose a pro-China party or continue to adhere to democracy and sovereignty". Many of the island's media questioned that a leader who kept shouting for unity, "when the ruling party is in urgent need of election, he began to stir up the issue of unification and independence... It's only a dish that has been served for 24 years. Voters'tastes have changed, but chefs can't bring out new dishes. Should such chefs also change?
Cross Straits confrontation for canvassing
The Taiwanese Association of Greater Washington hosted a Thanksgiving Dinner in Maryland, USA, on the 10th. The video recorded by Cai English in Minnan was broadcast live. According to Taiwan's United Evening News on November 11, Cai Yingwen claimed in the video that Taiwan's crisis came not only from the "intimidation" of the other side, but also from all-pervasive infiltration; the election on the 24th was an international election, "to see whether the Taiwanese would choose a pro-China political party, or continue to adhere to democracy and sovereignty." So she asked everyone to come back to vote, or to canvass for votes with relatives and friends in Taiwan, "Let the world see the aspirations and perseverance of Taiwanese people". This is Cai Yingwen who upgraded the local elections to "the war of unification and independence" after criticizing the "suppression" of the mainland in Yilan a few days ago.
The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislative Yuan Party Corps Director Li Jun-ni said on the 11th that Cai Ying-jeou's remarks were a strong response to Ma Ying-jeou's statement that "unity is not excluded". "Lianhe Bao" commented that Cai Ying had been regarded as a poison at the box office of the Green Camp. She did not see clearly the unwise manipulation of "unification and independence". In order to save the Democratic Progressive Party's election situation, she criticized Ma Ying-jeou as insufficient and continued to regard "relatives are not close to China" as a call for returning home to vote.
"Not everything can be done".
In addition to playing the "Unique Card", Cai Yingwen has emerged a lot of "exotic flowers" in recent days in order to save the situation. According to Taiwan's Zhongshi Electronic News, Cai Yingwen boasted recently that she thought her brother could do things, and she could do them. She also said that women should break away from the traditional idea of what women should or should not do and be able to do whatever they can and want to do. Taiwan netizens are angry, "not everything can be done, not Taiwan independence, to the economy".
On the evening of the 10th, Cai Yingwen said at the election campaign in Yilan, "What qualifications does the Kuomintang have to teach the DPP?" On the same day, when she attended the Kaohsiung event, she shouted to the Kuomintang, "People who make or throw rubbish are really not qualified to suspect that sweepers sweep the floor slowly."
Kuomintang spokesman Hong Mengkai said that from Cai Yingkai's words only felt a leader far away from the people, "to rationalize what has been done in the past two years and five months in power with a good sense of self", regardless of the people's painful feelings, "more than two years of hardship, is the management of this mentality of ladies and sisters. Produced below. Zhang Shanzheng, former "Chief Executive", cited six points, criticizing Cai Yingzheng for not being clear about the situation, including her lack of official positions after taking office, her ignorance of civil suffering, and her purging of dissidents in the name of "transitional justice". To be frank, these were not caused by what she called "reform", but by her poor ability to govern. However, he always felt good about himself and did not know how to reflect. "It is not the Kuomintang, but the people who want to teach the DPP a lesson."
The chairman of the party is not guaranteed.
In view of the effect of "Tong Du card", scholars in the island have different opinions. Yu Zhenhua, deputy researcher at the Electoral Research Center of Chengchi University, said that Cai Ying-jeou's cross-strait advocacy and his attempt to bring the election spindle to the issues of "national identity" and "unification and independence" depended on the DPP's follow-up mobilization strategy. Lai Yueqian, a concurrent associate professor at the Foreign Affairs Institute of Chengchi University, believes that the reason why local leaders do not deal with major cross-strait policies is obviously that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is in an unsatisfactory state of power and is in urgent need of elections, so they have to play the "unified and sole card". But now Taiwan's people's wisdom has opened up, and their grief, unified "independence" and blue-green vicious struggle have been As for whether "unification and independence attack and defense is beneficial to consolidate the emotion of green camp", Lai Yueqian bluntly said "the result is very poor".
The Kuomintang side criticized that Cai Yingying either came to the rescue of the Kuomintang from the mainland or from the mainland two weeks before the election, which was tantamount to admitting that there had been no bright spot in the past two years or more. He could use it to add points to the Democratic Progressive Party's election sentiment. The more he disregarded the people's feelings, the more he would strengthen the people's will. On November 24, Cai Yingying jumped out. Cast a vote of no confidence in the Cai Yingwen administration.
According to the latest poll released by the Continental Commission, 83.4% of respondents advocated "maintaining the status quo in a broad sense". 8.6% of respondents advocated "declaring independence" as soon as possible and 3.1% of respondents advocated "unifying" as soon as possible. It is clear that "unifying" is no longer a major issue of concern to the Taiwanese people. "If blue and green do not get rid of the past, unifying" is no longer the main topic of concern to Like, it's like drilling into a dead alley. This whirlwind brought by Korea Yo is the best example that the struggle for economy is better than everything else. According to the newspaper, Cai has made successive moves from "false news" to "independence" to "foreign forces", but this card, which used to work in Taiwan's election campaign, has played a key role in the local election campaign in which economic struggle has become the main theme. "Whether voters pay the bill or not, I'm afraid they have to play a big question mark" and let Cai play this card without any taboo. I am afraid that she is worried about the precarious position of the party chairman. According to the China Times, people want to live better, and continuing to manipulate opposition is tantamount to pushing themselves into the opposition of the mainstream public opinion.
