Falun Gong and 12 Galaxies

1 Mar

This is a photo of Falun Gong members protesting outside the office of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce in San Francisco.

Members of the Falun Gong in San Francisco are just not rational. They live in Disneyland, not in the real world.

On February 16, 2005 Falun Gong activists staged a protest in front of the San Francisco Chinese Chamber of Commerce, demanding admission into the San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade. They had been repeatedly denied last year and in past years because they are a political organization. Their application for this year’s parade has also been denied … repeatedly.

The Falun Gong just don’t get the picture. The San Francisco Chinese New Year Parade is a time to celebrate the lunar new year. It is not intended to be a platform for overt political protest.

Preaching to a tiny group outside the San Francisco Chinese Chamber of Commerce office, Mr. Huy Lu of the Falun Gong said that this incident “is another example of the Chinese Communist regime’s extension of its persecution against Falun Gong through its Consulates to other countries.” If Mr. Lu thinks the City of San Francisco and the San Francisco Chinese Chamber of Commerce are controlled by the Consulate of the People’s Republic of China, well, I suppose Mr. Lu is a few bricks short of a full load. Maybe he is on the same wave-length as the fellow who walks about the City carrying a sign proclaiming that 12 galaxies want to change the world. They are both nuts.

Lu and Falun Gong have managed to get Supervisor Chris Daly on their side. Chris Daly is the loose-cannon clown of the Board of Supervisors who represents the (obviously not politically astute) citizens of the Tenderloin. Now Daly is banging the Falun Gong gong as well.

Full-page ads in Monday’s Sing Tao Daily, Ming Pao and International Daily News said the Falun Gong have disrupted the Chinese American community by politicizing the parade. The newspaper ads are right. Falun Gong are trying to use political force to change the nature of the Chinese New Year Parade from a celebration to a political protest. I have been attending and sometimes participating in San Francisco’s Chinese New Year Parade for almost 50 years. I know what the parade is about and, frankly, Falun Gong does not belong in or anywhere near our parade.

I suggest the 12 galaxies fellow and Mr. Lu lead their followers to a galaxy far, far away … and I hope they don’t forget to take Chris Daly with them.
