I'm angry. Remember Wenyi Wang? She was one of many reporters at the welcoming ceremony at the White House for President Hu of China. She heckled Hu while he was speaking and because she spoke truth to power, Bush's Secret Service dragged her away while shutting her up by putting a hand over her mouth. But that's not what is angering me (though I am angry about that especially when Bush was telling Hu while at the podium that freedom of speech is a good thing! Hypocrite!). What is really angering me is the response today on the news programs. Even Imus in the Morning earlier today was making fun of her voice (yes...she's Chinese and her voice was cracking because she was angry! get over it!!) and he is missing the whole point as to what this woman was trying to express. Who cares how the woman's voice sounded like. She was pissed and was feeling helpless. We all get like that at times where our voices crack because we are so angry. She had a right to speak and what she was speaking about and trying to bring attention to is being lost by idiots in our media. We all know that China is a repressive regime, but what some people don't know is that this woman was (and is) part of a religious group in China called Falun Gong. Why am I angry? Well, members of this religious group back in China are being rounded up daily and are brought to prison camps in that country...and in some cases....the prisoners are cut open alive and their organs are removed to be sold on the black market! For God's sake, this is Evil and criminal and this woman was trying to make that point to our money, hungry, greedy president to tell Hu to stop the killing! But did he listen? No! I wouldn't be surprised if the maniac got some tips from Hu on how to treat his own prisoners he has scattered across the planet! We need more Wenyi Wang's in this country, not just to stand up for her cause (which is a very important cause), but to start speaking truth to power even if our voices crack. We need to get off our asses to go after repressive regimes...even if it is at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC!
