Taipei Sticker Madness

According to a knowledgeable analyst here, this sticker is being promulgated by the Taipei City gov't and is  going up in government offices of Taipei City. The blue section says "The Diaoyutai are the ROC's."

Great idea. I really love it. It signals that the city's KMT administration lives in an ROC ideological bubble. It does not contain a single Taiwanese/Taipei face, landmark, or artifact -- it is basically an announcement that the ROC doesn't have any link to the island and people of Taiwan, and doesn't care about them. Great work, KMT. I'm sure the DPP will have lots of fun deriding it.

Sadly, the DPP has a tendency to totally mess up political opportunities when they arrive gift wrapped for exploitation.

As soon as a Chinese visitor shows his face, the Taipei City gov't can't hide the poster (or, was that a "flag"?) fast enough;...

...you know, as in "the closeted transvestite can't hide his lingerie fast enough when someone's knocking at the door"...

The first thing that I noticed is that the English says "Taiwan, R.O.C.," but the hanzi leaves "Taiwan" off and just says "R.O.C."

Two messages, two audiences.

Definitely looks like they still resent being only on Taiwan.

Taiwan is needlessly losing a lot of friends in Japan. For what gain?

"The Chinese Trojan Horse Ma Ying-Jeou has successfully ensured that Taiwan be needlessly losing a lot of friends in Japan. For what gain?...Of course, for China's gains."

There, fixed it for you.
