Flushing, New York: Voices of Justice from Local Chinese Residents
(Clearwisdom.net) On May 17, 2008, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) started blatantly fanning hatred by hiring hooligans and mobs to besiege and assault Falun Gong practitioners in Flushing, New York. Since then, Falun Gong practitioners and volunteers working at the Service Center for Quitting the CCP have strengthened their efforts of truth clarification to the public, and have increased the number of service centers from one to five. With the stark contrast between kindness and evil, more and more people have sent out voices of justice, expressing their support for Falun Gong and the grand trend for quitting the CCP and its affiliated organizations, and condemned the CCP atrocities.
Loving the Country Does not Mean Loving the CCP
On June 7, this reporter met with Queens resident Mr. Zhang on the street. Mr. Zhang said that he has been in the U.S. for 35 years, and often comes to the bank in Flushing to conduct business. He said on May 17, when taking his grandson to school and passing by the Flushing library, he happened to see a large crowd of Chinese people from mainland China surrounding the Service Center for Quitting the CCP. In the crowd, some people held small five-star flags, and were shouting and yelling, and making obscene gestures. Mr. Zhang felt that these people were organized. His wife was afraid of getting involved in trouble, and dragged him away.
Mr. Zhang was outraged by these people's behavior. He told the reporter, "Why did so many people come to make trouble right after the earthquake occurred in China? The CCP plotted this incident behind the scenes. You can see clearly at a glance that these people have just recently came to the U.S, and are organized. They may be ignorant or seek benefits, or be instigated."
Mr. Zhang said that the U.S. is a democratic society, and that everyone should see things clearly and listen to differing opinions. Some of his friends didn't recognize Falun Gong. He often discussed this with them, and later found that those people mistakingly regard China as the CCP, and regard loving the country as loving the CCP, and their national sentiments are exploited by the CCP. They are confused by the CCP's propaganda.
Mr. Zhang continued by saying that Chinese people--are they people of the CCP or the people of China? The troublemakers are pitiful, as they don't know who they are defending, the CCP or China. It's clear now that many people in Flushing are from mainland China, and they have long been brainwashed and formed a notion that "the CCP is my motherland, and the CCP is everything for me." They don't actually know that the CCP has done great harm to them.
One time when Mr. Zhang passed by and saw Falun Gong practitioners in Flushing being attacked, he said a couple of fair words for Falun Gong. As a result, someone in the crowd kicked him twice. He thought that the CCP accomplices shouted love for the country but what they love is the country ruled by the CCP. There is an organization behind the scenes from whom they may have obtained benefits (the Chinese Consulate). Those people are poor, miserable and hateful.
Mr. Zhang also expressed his admiration for Falun Gong practitioners, who do not fight back when hit or cursed.
Peng Keyu, the Chinese Consul General in New York Should be Sued
Flushing resident Mr. Wang told the reporter that since it is known that the Chinese Consulate plotted and stirred up these violent incidents, the Service Center for Quitting the CCP should file a lawsuit against Chinese Consul General Peng Keyu. By doing so, the American government and people can learn what the CCP is doing here in the U.S. Peng Keyu should be sued, and before the trial, the court should issue an order prohibiting him from fleeing.
Mr. Wang said, "Gods bless China, gods will eliminate the CCP." The volunteers working at the Service Centers for Quitting the CCP have helped people learn the facts that the CCP has destroyed, and altered Chinese history and culture, and the CCP is deceiving the people. The volunteers helped people learn that joining the Party and its affiliated organizations will do them no good at all. After quitting the CCP, they will no longer be accomplices of the CCP in harming people.
Mr. Wang said that the CCP started its regime by fighting and struggling. The CCP instigated people to fight against their brothers and sisters, leading to the loss of kindness among people. The Cultural Revolution, specifically, not only destroyed Chinese traditional culture, but also destroyed human culture. Human culture is focused on human relations, and is family-centered. The CCP has made people distrust others, and China therefore has lost its moral conduct as a whole. Later generations will have no idea what their ancestors were like. The CCP deliberately covered up, destroyed and changed ancient Chinese culture, and later generations do not know how good China was. The CCP has destroyed the roots of Chinese people and Chinese culture.
Mr. Wang continued by saying that there indeed exists a law of cause and effect. He said he hopes that gods will eliminate the CCP, the quicker the better, because if it is prolonged, people will suffer more disasters. But the key is that today's people should be awakened themselves. The CCP has run rampant for decades, and persecuted many Chinese people. Now is the time for people to awaken, and stand up against the evil CCP. The service centers for quitting the CCP help people learn the CCP's real nature, and inspire people's kindness.
"Falun Gong is still here, and justice is still here"
Mr. Mai saw volunteers from the service centers for quitting the CCP handing out The Epoch Times newspapers. He took a copy and had a conversation with a volunteer. Speaking of the recent incidents in which mobs besieged and assaulted Falun Gong practitioners, Mr. Mai expressed disdain for the indecent behavior and lowly demeanor of the attackers. He said many Falun Gong practitioners are highly-educated, they are philosophers, literati and artists and so on, they are reasonable when discussing problems. How about those attackers? They are only able to yell derogatory slogans, and make obscene gestures. Some women and young people even made indecent gestures, which he found truly disgusting.
A Falun Gong practitioner said that a CCP accomplice threatened to kill him, but when the practitioner took out his camera, the mobster ran away. Mr. Mai said that if he were the practitioner, he would not take the picture first. He would catch him first and then report him to the police. This was a death-threat, which is illegal in the U.S.
Mr. Mai knows a man who got involved in besieging and attacking Falun Gong practitioners and was arrested by the police. Mr. Mai called that person on the phone, and said, "How do you feel now? You got arrested and fined, so you'd better go to the Chinese Consulate to get reimbursed for the fine, and see if they will take care of you. How silly you are for doing such things!"
Days ago, Mr. Mai said to some people who had participated in attacking Falun Gong practitioners, "Look, who wins now? Falun Gong is still here, justice is still here, how about you?"
