Wenyi Wang Had Good Reason to Disrupt the President's White House Lawn Photo Op with Red Chinese President Hu

Wenyi Wang Had Good Reason to Disrupt the President's White House Lawn Photo Op with Red Chinese President Hu

I have posted previously (and favorably) on Wenyi Wang's bold stand in disrupting President Bush's White House Lawn Photo Op with Red Chinese President Hu.

President Bush was – understandably – angry.  However, I think he should have shown a bigger, more gracious heart in having only one minor charge levied against her, rather than a laundry list of serious charges, including the ludicrous "intimidating a foreign dignitary!"  (Huh? President Hu has more troops under his command than any other man on earth -- and we are supposed to believe that one unarmed, middle-aged woman intimidated him by shouting out some well-deserved verbal challenges.

Well, now Ethan Gutmann (who used to be involved in Chinese business activities) has followed up on the Wenyi Wang-outburst-saga with a hard-hitting -- and FRIGHTENING -- piece on just how huge the Chinese organ-harvesting industry is.

So what, you may ask?  Well, for one thing, that is what Wenyi Wang was protesting: The butchering and selling of body parts of her Falun Gong co-religionists by the savage Red Chinese government.

Unfortunately, many people in the West have the inclination (and the cash) to fly to China to get freshly harvested organs implanted in their bodies at bargain basement prices (by organ transplant standards, which are not cheap to begin with).

President Hu is presiding over an industry that rivals in its cold-blooded efficiency anything that Nazi Germany or Imperial Japan carried out during World War II in the way of human experimentation.

And, what does President Bush and Congress do?  Heed only the cries of rapacious businessmen hungry for more huge profits in Red China.

Meanwhile, Chinese people of religion: Falun Gong, Christians, etc, are in danger of being imprisoned, executed, and butchered by their Red Chinese oppressors.

What Gutman ignores is the fact multiple investigation conducted by US government have found Falun Gong's concentration camp claim not credible:

Another investigation by Africa, Global Human Rights & International Operations also found Falun Gong's claim not credible:

"It appears the claims by Falun Gong have been at least substantially exaggerated. Initial investigations by researchers for a US congressional committee have identified the site at Sujiatun as a hospital, where it is suspected organ harvesting occurs but on nowhere near the scale claimed"

That's not to say China does not have problem with isolated cases of abuse and irregularity. After all even we are not immune of it, as recent cases of grisly cadaver organ harvesting in NYC showed.

Here's a blog entry I would recommend. It discussed British Transplant Society's concern over the issue of consent by the condemned:

hi sunday service! Shilling for the PRC's Communist Party ruling class yet once again, huh? Your english betrays you as a non-native speaker -- and, most probably, an East Asian ethnic. You say you are not Chinese. Well, I strongly suspect you are a Chinese ethnic born in Taiwan, Malaysia, or Singapore. I have nothing against legal immigrants from
Asia (or anywhere else) -- provided their PRIMARY loyalty is to the United States. I seriously suspect you may be a paid agent of the PRC. The State Department is notoriously weak in confronting our enemies around the world. You failed to engage Gutmann's arguments. Gutmann 1, Sunday service 0. -- gunjam

Hey, it's your blog, feel free to go after the messenger when you have no answer.

You know, if you are not going to take your own blog seriousely, I can't help you.

Talking trash in cyberspace is for children. If you have any proof I encourage you to turn me in to the Department of Homland Loyalty.

But I suspect you are sticking to that "you are a spy because you don't agree with me" stuff because it is emotionally satisfying.

Good luck with your blog.

I agree that this woman should get a slap on the wrist. The real fault lies with the White House screening process. Wang should never have been allowed to get that close. Nevermind her politcal statement. The fact that someone with any sort of hostile intent got that close to the president is a problem.

As far as Falun Gong goes. I don't know much about it..........but what I have heard is not good. My understanding is that they are more cult than religion and they are not good to their followers. However, as I stated above....that's a side issue.

hey, sunday service: i really appreciate (not) your "concern" for my blog. The regime in China is brutal and you seem to have nothing to do but leap to its defense anytime someone bothers to point out the obvious. (Wonder whose payroll YOU are on?) -- gunjam

boston maggie, i suggest you rethink your position: wenyi wang is a bona fide journalist. No one could have read her mind. Put yourself in her shoes: If you and your loved ones had been horribly treated by a Government leader, wouldn't you risk arrest to do what she did? She did not lay a hand on anyone. Regarding the Falun Gong: Look, I am a Christian and no Falun Gong. However, the Chinese government's brutal repression of this group is despicable and rightly protested -- even by non-Falun Gong members like me. -- gunjam
