“Fear of China”, “fear of China” and “hatred of China” have become the main themes of the election campaign in recent years. By operating the “Anti China sentiment” and the so-called “sense of national subjugation”, Tsai ing ing not only solved the inner-party palace persecution caused by the poor governance of the first term, but also successfully reversed the “Korean wave” trend brought about by the “nine in one” election, so as to win the chance of full governance again. However, Tsai ing ing Wen’s ability to manipulate the “Anti China” sentiment is related to the ideology that has always been emphasized, and on the other hand, thanks to the political dividend generated by the confrontation between the United States and China, Tsai ing ing Wen has been able to continuously carry out the “best in the history of Taiwan US relations” internal publicity.
However, with the continuous spread of the new crown epidemic, the Taiwan epidemic command center has been forced into political operation in dealing with the control of the legitimate children of Taiwan people and mainland born children, and the humanitarian and human rights issues of Lu’s return to Taiwan; and the gradual warming up of the US election, the contrast between Biden and trump in the US China relations and the election optimism have made the “hatred of China” and “Taiwan US Customs” for a long time It seems that the two “best” internal publicity effects in history are at the end of their tether, and public opinion has gradually reversed.
according to the latest public opinion poll released by the “prosperous times”, nearly 60% of the people think that the current cross-strait communication should be “strengthened”. Among them, 72% of the young people under the age of 30 advocate to strengthen communication; even among the pan green supporters, 44% agree, which is higher than 39% who advocate “reducing communication”. The reason for this lies in the fact that the bitter fruit of the cross-strait confrontation has changed from being far away in the sky to being close at hand or even experiencing it personally.
many young people were seriously affected by the repeated decision-making of the Taiwan authorities in this new epidemic, either because of cross-strait trade, education or even marriage, especially among young people under 30 years old. In addition to the economic depression caused by the epidemic situation in Taiwan, the restriction of “Xiao Ming’s return to Taiwan” and the gradual opening-up in stages by squeezing toothpaste have undoubtedly made young couples suffer a lot. The Taiwan authorities use epidemic prevention icing to package political reasons and limit the right of the people to reunite. As a result, young people have to be separated from their wives and children because of irrational political factors.
, the poll also shows that nearly 70% of the people believe that the reason for the United States is to counter China’s mainland and safeguard the interests of the United States, and only 14% of the people believe that the protection of the people of Taiwan is just the proof that “the best” in the history of Taiwan US relations has a spent force. The people did not equate “Taiwan US relations” with protecting the people of Taiwan. Since the mainland China is the main axis of Trump’s campaign, it means that 7 of the people know clearly that no good relationship between Taiwan and the US can exceed the interests of the United States. In other words, as long as there are more important U.S. interests than “Taiwan US relations,” Taiwan US relations may change day by day.
compared with the beginning of the outbreak of the epidemic, only a few people paid attention to and sympathized with the treatment of the mainland people by the Taiwan authorities. However, with the development of the epidemic situation, more and more people have felt the inconvenience caused by the interruption of cross-strait exchanges. Now even representatives of public opinion have joined in the petition to help “Xiao Ming return to Taiwan”, which shows that the current policy is far away from public opinion.
