Is it progress if a cannibal uses a knife and fork?(5)

In year 1943, Madam Soong May Ling (宋美龄) , wife of China president, Chiang Kai Shek, arrived United State of America to gather support from USA to counter Japan invasion. Her speech has won

During her visit, a mass worker protest has emerge everywhere in USA. The USA first lady,Eleanor Roosevelt, has ask Soong May Ling about worker protest in China and how China government resolve it.

Soong May Ling (宋美龄) answer with a simple American gesture : put her finger below the neck, then slash it from left to right. It is a gesture for hanging people.

Eleanor Roosevelt are shocked. Because Soong May Ling, are a graduate of Wellesley College , honors in 1917 with a major in English literature and minor in philosophy.

Eleanor Roosevelt later mentioned this on her memoir, which noted Soong May Ling, although spending many years in United Stated of America and graduate with honor in academic, know nothing about the freedom spirit of United State of America.

That is a history of 1943.

In year 2008, after 65 years, same thing happens in Malaysia.

Because Howsy ask :
Tell Me Which Country In The Civilized World Does Not Accord Rightful Citizenship and Equal Rights After 3 Generations of Residency.

This is my answer to Howsy question.

Remember, Soong Mei Ling (宋美龄) study in USA since age of 10. And the USA freedom spirit failed to transform her, what do you expect a crown Prince that study for less than 10 years in some Anglosaxon University. 😉

对于Howsy 先生对于 某些人的见解大感不满 , 我这里有个现成的历史故事, 发生在 1943 年。

宋美龄抹脖子是一个见证,使人战悚!
— 柏杨
宋美龄,她是统治国民党政府长达五十年之久的蒋中正的夫人。十岁那年,跟随姐姐到美国留学,曾就读卫斯理女子学院。被认为(并且也自己认为)除了一副中国人面孔外,思想精神层面已经彻底美国化,包括笃信基督教。当中日战争进入胶着状态,她代表中国前往美国访问,在国会中发表演说。用美国人所最熟悉的语言,为苦难的祖国寻求援助,获得激烈掌声,并且住进白宫,作为罗斯福总统的上宾。那是她生命荣耀的最高点,一切都显露出她的博学和高贵气质,使她和她的国家同时赢到尊重。可是,一件事情发生了,当时美国正在大罢工,罗斯福夫人问她:“这样的大罢工,如果发生在中国,你们会怎么办?”宋美龄立刻用她的纤纤玉手,在自己的咽喉上划了一下,使罗斯福夫人大吃一惊。

  对着电视上的这个镜头,我不但吃惊,而且战栗。我不能接受现在正被炒热,正被称为人民最敬爱的永远第一夫人宋美龄,竟有如此表现。不禁想起芮德的感慨,酱缸文化威力是如此的深不可测。宋美龄出生于富有的买办家庭,和穷苦小民们从没有平等的接触。她受的完全是美式教育,只懂得西方人的生活。用手自抹脖子,就是美式教育的表达方式,中国人从没有用这种方式来表示“格杀无论”“死路一条” 的。所以在肢体语言上,虽然不太配合她的教养,但表演的功能,却完全合格,使西方人毫无错误的了解她的内涵。问题在于她的内涵:“格杀无论”“死路一条”,反应出来的,却是东方皇家贵族的封建暴力。换句话说,她是用美国人教出的手势,来表达中国封建暴力文化的思维。所以宋美龄除了有一个中国人的面孔和西方教育习惯的生活外,在她的内心深处,埋藏着的,却是中国传统当权派的封建暴力。
