Outrage at China linked to Chinese nationalist charged with CA church shooting

China’s state-owned Global Times Propaganda newspapers broke their silence about the deadly massacre in California on Tuesday, denying rhetoric played a role only in violent opposition, saying officials said officials were fueled by Chinese nationalist hatred of the Taiwanese state.

Taiwan is a sovereign, democratic and free country that operates completely independent of communist China. Taiwan has never been ruled by a regime that occupied Beijing. Nevertheless, the CCP insists that Taiwan is a “province” of China and that the state is illegal.

China’s state-owned propaganda regularly threatens to destroy the Taiwanese government with lethal force. in January Global Times He boasted that the military exercises conducted by the Chinese military near the island nation were like tightening the ‘noose around the neck’ of Taiwanese citizens.

Chinese dictator Xi Jinping (習近平) famously threatened in his 2019 speech that he would “pulverize the bones” of anyone who recognizes Taiwan as a nation and supporters of independence in Tibet, East Turkestan, or other communist-occupied areas of China.

Orange County District Attorney on Tuesday charged 68-year-old David Chou (Chou Wenwei) with one murder, five attempted murder, four possession of an explosive, and escalation of a felony is a personal release of a firearm that causes waiting and death.” Chou is the suspect in the shooting at a Taiwanese church luncheon in Woods, California, on Monday. He was found bound by the victims when police arrived at the scene.

Prosecutors “Maximum death sentence if found guilty of all charges on Chuseok” said.

Police have identified substances in Chou’s car that indicate he is “angry” with relations between China and Taiwan. An image of Chou came to mind this week at an event hosted by a Chinese regime-affiliated organization and holding a banner denouncing Taiwan’s “demon”.

Chou also claimed not to be Chinese while simultaneously arguing that Taiwanese citizenship did not exist, and accused the US of the shooting because “the crime was committed by American citizens.”

“The identity of the suspect in the California church shooting, who was born in Taiwan, China and immigrated to the United States, has become the focus of Western media.” times “We were using it to fuel anti-Chinese sentiment and tensions in the Taiwan Strait. Observers said the American media should instead question why American soil continues to breed gun violence.”

that much times He denounced media reports identifying Chou as a “Chinese immigrant”, claiming his birthplace of Taiwan as “China’s Taiwan”. The Shenzhen newspaper made a clear distinction between Chou born in Taiwan and “man born in mainland China”. Perhaps you have admitted that Taiwan is not China.

Ultimately, in order not to clarify this incongruity, Global Times The article identified Chou as an unruly American.

“The truth is that the crime was committed by American citizens. But why did the American media focus so much on where he lived before moving to America?” times quoted an in-house “expert” and asked, “Rather than asking yourself why the American soil is giving rise to gun violence.”

A Chinese government spokesman, identified as Zhou Fenglian, was also quoted in the article as saying that the Taiwanese government was “despicable” for expressing concerns about its citizens abroad in the aftermath of the shooting.

In contrast, Chinese propagandists have repeatedly denounced the United States as a “neo-Nazi” nation after the mass shooting of a suspected white supremacist in Buffalo, New York.

“While shootings are not uncommon in the United States, recent events in Buffalo show some special features that prove that neo-Nazi ideology is growing in American society and continues to influence white people, especially teenagers.” Global Times claimed.

Articles about the California shootings also denounce the US “foreign policy” for unspecified attacks on Asians on US territory.
