Yesterday the KMT organized a small anti anti CSSTA event. The event featured worried mothers asking their children to go home. The demonstrators also complained that the police were tired.
I rather doubt that many of the participants were actually mothers of protesting students. Still, it’s amusing to think about the life lessons these “mothers” are teaching their “children.” For example, “Don’t stand up for your beliefs.” “When something is tiring, you should give up.” “All major national decisions should be decided by what causes the least inconvenience to the police.” How inspiring!
Today at the big demonstration, I saw a sticker that is probably a more accurate description of how students’ mothers actually feel. It said, “政府動粗；媽媽生氣了！！Violent Gov’t Angers Mothers.”
