A Part of China By James Reed

     “The first Chinese-born lawmaker to be elected to Australia’s Parliament has come under attack over her links to a Chinese foreign influence network. Gladys Liu, who was born in Hong Kong in 1964, was elected to the conservative government in May elections to represent a Melbourne electoral division with a large population of ethnic Chinese voters. She has come under media scrutiny recently over her membership in organizations overseen by the United Front Work Department of the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee, which exert influence on important individuals, organizations and governments outside China. Concern is growing about China’s influence in Australia, which last year banned covert foreign interference in domestic politics. Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported Tuesday that Chinese government records indicate that Liu, who migrated to Australia in 1985, was a member of two provincial councils of the China Overseas Exchange Association between 2003 and 2015. That association reported to the State Council, China’s chief administrative authority, when Liu was a member, but has since merged with the United Front Work Department. She told Sky News television later Tuesday that she “cannot recall” being a member of those provincial councils. “If I can’t recall, I cannot be an active member of that council, can I?” she told Sky News. “I can tell you that I have never been a member of this council.”

      But in a statement Wednesday, Liu said she held an “honorary role” in the council she had referred to — Guangdong Overseas Exchange Association — in 2011. But she said she no longer had any association with that organization. “Unfortunately, some Chinese associations appoint people to honorary positions without their knowledge or permission. I do not wish my name to be used in any of these associations and I ask them to stop using my name,” she said. “I have resigned from many organizations and I am in the process of auditing any organizations who may have added me as a member without my knowledge or consent,” she added. Opposition lawmakers on Wednesday accused Liu of making misleading statements about her past links to “Chinese Communist Party propaganda arms.” She has also come under fire for failing to condemn China’s military grab for contested territory in the South China Sea. Asked in the Sky News interview if she agreed that China’s efforts to take over most of the South China Sea were unlawful, she replied, “I definitely put Australia’s interests first.” She said Wednesday that during the interview “I was not clear and should have chosen my words better.” “We do not take sides on competing territorial claims but we call on all claimants to resolve disputes peacefully and in accordance with international law,” she said of Australia’s policy on the South China Sea. Damien Kingsbury, a Deakin University expert on international politics, said the controversy surrounding Liu raised national security concerns. “She’s certainly seen to have a link to an organization that is associated with intelligence-gathering operations and that would have to be very worrying,” Kingsbury said.

     I simply cannot see what all of the fuss is about here, since Australia is part of China, so of course our new leaders, elites and future prime minister, may have a “Chinese connection.” The critique above smacks of assimilationism and ignores the majesty of multicultural Asia, Asia, Asia, diversity and our beatific Chinese destiny, as we eternally atone for the infinitely evil, evil, evil white Australia policy, genocide against everybody, including mother Gaia, global warming, discrimination and intolerance towards transgressing dolphins,  and alphabetically challenged cyborgs on other planets in distant universes and white privilege radiating throughout the cosmos, causing all matter of quantum mechanical racist effects. Did I forget anything? Did I forget anybody? If so blame my white privilege. In fact, what we need is to bring back the 14th century fanatical religious practice of the flagellants, who had a morbid mortification of the flesh, only make it for white flesh, and base the cult around the universities. Guild-ridden socialist students and obese Leftist academics could go on city parades of self-inflicted whippings, to atone for the guilt of having white skin. The ageing boomer academics may need to use wheelchairs and use their white student slaves for the whippings, not being the people they were in the heady days of 1968. It would be a small start on the road of transinfinite guilt.
