China: Rules of Olympic Engagement – John Kennedy

An update of a CDT post, from Global Voices:

On Hong Kong Democratic Party founder and Legco member Martin Lee being labeled a race traitor and running dog after his WaPo article, which proposed engagement with Beijing in lieu of Olympic boycott, was widely interpreted by some as a call for American intervention in China’s human rights situation just days after he met with president George Bush’s National Security Advisor and “cold warrior” John Negroponte, readers of NetEase Olympic Report‘s series of reports documenting furor and backlash aimed at Lee over the weekend made the following comments:

On Tsang Hin-chi‘s criticism of Lee for lacking ‘the bravery of Chinese blood’:

As a Hong Konger, to go to another country and demand it intervene in our China’s affairs, is wrong.

谁都有发表相左言论的自由,但是,作为一个国民,发表言论的基础在于维护自己祖国的国家利益,当有危害国家利益的时候,大家应该三思而后行的吧?何况企图利用别的国家和政府来干涉自己祖国的利益,这样做是否已经没有了作为一个国家国民的资格?建议取消此人的中国国籍,驱逐出中国,作为中国的国家敌人对待, 永远不得踏上中国的领土半步,

Everyone has freedom to express opposition, but, as a Chinese, speech and expression are based on upholding our motherland’s national interests. When national interest is in jeopardy, everyone ought to think before they act, no? Let alone attempting to use other countries and governments to meddle with one’s own motherland’s national interests, does someone like that still qualify as a national citizen? I suggest this person’s citizenship be revoked, that he be exiled from China, and be treated as an enemy of the Chinese state, never to set foot on Chinese soil again.
