President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) and Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) Chairwoman Hung Hsiu-chu (洪秀柱) were in a rare agreement as they shared each other’s Facebook posts condemning self-styled citizen journalist Hung Su-chu (洪素珠) for her discriminatory remarks and expressed their hopes for a more tolerant nation.

Tsai on Friday night shared a Facebook post by Hung Hsiu-chu that condemned Hung Su-chu’s remarks against an elder waishengren (外省人, Mainlander), a term referring to people who fled to Taiwan with the KMT in 1949 after its defeat in the Chinese Civil War.

Hung Su-chu posted a video on her Facebook page, in which she told a waishengren that he did not contribute to Taiwan, but “gnawed on Taiwanese’s bones” and should go back to China.

Hung Hsiu-chu said in her Facebook post that she often saw people using some derogatory terms, such as “Chinese pigs” and “Chinese dogs” to ridicule the KMT and its supporters.     [FULL  STORY]
