Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) yesterday visited veterans in
Kaohsiung who had been verbally attacked by self-claimed citizen reporter Hung Su-chu (洪素珠), saying that her party would propose draft legislation to ban “discrimination based on ethnicity.”
Hung Hsiu-chu visited Chou Fu-wen (周富文) and Peng Tzu-ko (彭子珂), who came to Taiwan with the KMT regime in 1949 and were recently aggressively questioned by Hung Su-chu at Kaohsiung’s 228 Peace Park.
During the visit, Hung Hsiu-chu “held their hands to console them and told them that [she] was upset for them,” she said in a post on Facebook, adding that she apologized to the veterans on behalf of the KMT “for failing to explain to society the contributions of veterans to Taiwan.”
Chou said he belongs to a generation that witnessed tumultuous social upheavals and would not take Hung Su-chu’s comments to heart, despite the injustice he suffered, Hung Hsiu-chu said, adding that Chou nevertheless shed tears when expressing his feelings. [FULL STORY]
