RE: hakka: Taiwan Hakka and election
Amazing how wording can change all the perception:
1. Chen SB WON a Hakka county in PingDong. Lian Zhan not even one !
3. NONE of the politician in Taiwan and China make public address in Hakka !
In FACT, on the Hakka grand gathering in Taiwan, China's representative is
the only Hakka delegation refuse to address in Hakka but Beijing Hua. BUT
Chen SB did make 10 min Hakka public speech. Compare to the zero record by
other candidate, He has done a lot for Hakka in the presidential campaign.
Now for visible things that Chen SB has done as a major, He established a
Hakka cultural center. It is not "He has done a lot without delivery", He
has done visible things to Hakka community, and compared to president Lee,
he certainly has done a lot.
As for 2, someone in Taiwan can give a better insight.
