阿根廷選手拿國旗挺台被警告 鄭弘儀埋怨轟柯文哲

2017年由台北主辦的世大運日前圓滿落幕,不少外國運動好手公開表示對台灣留下美好印象,處處展現暖心舉動,阿根廷選手們更在閉幕式時身披中華民國國旗進場相挺,事後慘遭國際大學運動總會(FISU)警告,讓台灣民眾無奈又心疼,沒想到柯P事後卻是先向大陸喊話,讓知名評論節目主持人鄭弘儀非常不滿,在電台節目中開轟,甚至怒喊:「哎呀我的天啊!」。

鄭弘儀昨天主持電台節目《寶島全世界》,談到阿根廷選手帶國旗進場慘FISU警告一事,重點在於台北市長柯文哲的反應,竟是公開對中國大陸喊話:「這不干我們的事,是阿根廷做的」,據《自由時報》報導,鄭弘儀對這樣的回應感到不滿,憤怒表示人家拿國旗挺台灣,換得的卻是地主國主辦方去跟大陸告狀,還說跟自己無關,不禁想問柯P:「這是一個什麼樣的心態阿?」。

鄭弘儀不滿柯P反應,同時也提供「解決方案」,覺得阿根廷情義相挺,柯P於情於理應該肯定對方的勇敢作為,身為地主國,應站在認同我們的國家與土地的角度,歡迎他們(外國選手)用國旗挺台灣才是,他直呼搞不懂柯P的邏輯:「哎呀我的天呀!我挺你,你竟然不挺我,你還要去跟中國報備說那跟我無關」,還狠補一槍,怒嗆聲:「怕中國怕成那樣嗎?」。

Flag affair shows Ko’s ideals have been ditched
By LIOU JE-WEI 劉哲瑋

A day after several Argentine athletes carried Republic of China national flags into the Taipei Municipal Stadium during the closing ceremony of the Taipei Summer Universiade on Wednesday last week, the International University Sports Federation issued a warning to the team.

In response to the incident, Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said in an interview: “First of all I want to inform China that the flag incident had nothing to do with us. It was the Argentine athletes who did it.”

What would the Argentine team think about Ko’s remarks?

When foreigners do something that could annoy Beijing and is essentially good for Taiwan, why would the mayor of Taipei be so afraid and feel the need to report to China?

Why is Ko so concerned about how China feels?

Since President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文) took office last year, Beijing has done everything in its power to force her administration to acknowledge the so-called “1992 consensus” — including ceasing all formal communications and exchanges with the Taiwanese government.

However, on the day of the Universiade opening ceremony, Huang Wentao (黃文濤), head of the Department of Exchange at China’s Taiwan Affairs Office (TAO), came to Taiwan with the People’s Republic of China’s athletes as the team’s leader and consultant.

As the highest-ranking official to have visited since Tsai’s inauguration, Huang came with a special purpose.

However, his purpose was not to meet with the Tsai administration, but to meet with Ko.

It is still unknown what Huang and Ko talked about.

Does Ko not owe the residents of Taipei an explanation as to what happened?

It is possible that the talks were directly related to Ko’s eagerness to tell China he was not responsible for the flags incident?

That such an important TAO official should skip the Mainland Affairs Council (MAC) and directly meet with the Taipei City Government should not become the new normal.

Those who find it acceptable should ask themselves if they would be happy if Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) mayors were to do likewise.

As the host of this year’s BRICS summit, China last month sent a representative to Kinmen to discuss security cooperation for the event.

Kinmen County Commissioner Chen Fu-hai (陳福海) told the representative that as the matter was outside the local government’s jurisdiction, it would discuss it with the central government.

As mayor of Taipei, elected by Taiwanese, Ko should have done the same and made it clear to Huang from the beginning that he should contact the MAC before meeting him to show respect for the nation’s political system.

Unfortunately, Ko chose to improve his relationship with China for his own political interests, rather than protect the nation’s status.

In the same interview, Ko described people on both sides of the Taiwan Strait as “one big family.”

Moreover, at both the opening and the closing ceremonies of the Universiade, the audience were banned from carrying flags showing profiles of Taiwan.

A man who waved a flag with the word “Taiwan” on it at the closing ceremony was even carried out of the stadium by a group of military police dressed in black.

Has Ko forgotten the ideals he had when he decided to pursue a career in politics?
