    San Leandro to fly flag of People's Republic of China - San Jose Mercury News

    :lol: eat dirt separatist whiners

    I hope one of them does something stupid when that flag is raised, like assaulting the uniformed city workers raising the flag.

    It again proves my point that no matter where they live, the Han always are loyal to their homeland before anything else. Not for any ulterior motive, but the universal affinity of the Han and Han arrogance of exhibiting that Han is a superior race and a culture!

    We experienced it during the Olympic Flame's journey, where no matter what their countymen of their country of domicile thought, they went gung ho for Communist China and Han solidarity!

    It's the People's Republic of California, folks. Nothing to see here.
    Obama once said he would prefer to be president of China.

    We already know you are a provocateur from your behavior patterns here. The irony is that you once posted a lecture about the level of debate on DFI.

    I'm not sure how my opening post has anything to do with the level of debate on DFI. One of the main rules of epistemology is that the level of debate is separate from the content being debated. An opening post that is not in response to any other post on the site, by definition, cannot affect the level of debate.

    On the contrary, your crude attempt at an ad hominem most definitely is lowering the quality of debate on DFI. I would add that the image macro violates forum guidelines as well.

    In my time with the US Army I can't remember seeing one Chinese-American in uniform.

    I apologize for the pussy.

    But I was referring to you words following the article, a cheap taunt and meant to provoke:

    I am sure you posted it to show how the Han reign supreme, even in foreign lands.

    Got the point.

    Said so many a time, but you all refuted it, to only agree with me now!

    Typically Chinese.

    Weather vanes!

    San Leandro mayor suspends decision to fly the red flag on China's national day

    In what turned to be a setback for San Leandro council member Benny Lee the city's mayor Stephen Cassidy has suspended the implementation of Lee's proposal to raise the Chinese national flag atop San Leandro city hall on October 1, China's national day, after protests from Tibetans and supporters.


    Tibetans and supporters in San Francisco on Monday protested outside the City Hall of San Leandro where four out of the seven members voted in favor of Lee's proposed bill.

    Tibetans and their supporters carried out a series of direct protests across the Bay Area followed by intense lobbying of local politicians to defeat the resolution. Around 30 Tibetans were present in the hall during the proceedings which saw 5 Tibetans speak before the council consisting of seven members.

    The resolution was supported by the Chinese Consulate in San Francisco. Similar resolutions are reportedly being introduced in San Francisco, Oakland and Alameda.

    Petitions were sent to call on Mayor Cassidy to defeat the resolution. Cassidy himself voted against the resolution but went short of a vote to defeat it.

    Kunjo Tashi, the president of the Tibetan Association of Northern California said such meddling by China into local government affairs in America should not be tolerated. "We are pleased that Mayor of San Leandro City has upheld the principles of democracy that America is known for. We appreciate Mayor Cassidy for his courage and exemplary action against the forces undermining American democracy."

    The newly formed Tibetan National Congress, - a group comprising of Tibetan and foreign supporters of independence for Tibet as opposed to the exile Tibetan government's middle way approach of seeking autonomy from China - has also thanked Mayor Cassidy for his action on its website.

    SF Team Tibet is a coalition of four groups, Tibetan Association of Northern California, Students for a Free Tibet, San Francisco Tibetan Youth Congress and Bay Area Friends of Tibet.

    ********************************

    Sorry to be the party pooper for the Chinese who were jubilating!

    It appears that the Tibetans are capable of winning when there is no threat of brutal repression since they temporarily live in a free nation!

    Notwithstanding, I will say a penny for Benny's thought as the pennies fall in its place. and poor Benny is shown his place!

    So good old Lee was talking about California's Red Star?

    If so, why this ecstasy amongst the Chinese posters?
