Wang Dan: 21 years ago today, 17 May 1989

78147102 王丹写于2010年5月17日:

21年前的今天:严家其、包遵信领衔发表中国知识界五一七声明,提出”清王朝已经灭亡七十六年了,但是,中国还有一位没有皇帝头衔的皇帝,一位年迈昏庸的独裁者”,把矛头直接指向邓小平。上午九点,游行队伍大批到达广场,持续至天黑。总人数达百万之多。

Wang Dan Writes on 17 May 2010:

21 years ago today: Chinese intellectuals, led by Yan Jiaqi and Bao Zunxin, delivered their “May 17th Declaration”. The declaration made explicit reference to Deng Xiaoping when it said, “The Qing Empire had perished for 76 years, and yet in China we are still ruled by an emperor, an old and muddle-headed dictator, even though he does not wear a crown.” An enormous number of protestors marched to the Square. They arrived as early as 9 o’clock in the morning and stayed till dark. The total number of people would have exceeded one million.

    Since when is bloody French allowed on this blog?

    The only reason I allow any German on it is to keep informed of what the enemy is thinking.

    France: An occasional irritant but an entertaining one.

    Germany: A psychotic nation, the birthplace of all kinds of abominations and…

    …um, also of the very cool Pope Benedict. I must rethink this.

    Hm, well maybe Germany serves a useful role as a cultural buffer zone against the civilisationally suicidal nations of Scandanavia.

    “Sweden and Norway and Denmark: Serving the cause of the annihilation of Christendom for over a thousand years.”

    Sorry but I’m just cranky about Scandinavia right now, especially after seeing this clip of Muslim thugs – guests of Sweden – attacking a Swedish cartoonist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgNa7g_sl_8

    Man, take good care of your big, smoke-free continent before calling my country psychotic, will ya? At least I can go to my favorite pub here and smoke as many cigarettes as I like.

  6. justrecently says:

    Btw, it’s politically incorrect when a woman police officer overpowers a mulim man.

  7. Ned Kelly says:

    Any man in his right mind would consider it a privilege to be overpowered by a typical young Swedish woman. But it seems many Muslim men are more into boys: http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2010/04/20/pbs-video-uncovering-the-world-of-bacha-bazi/
