Lin Shan Ju – Homophobic Taiwanese White Supremacist and Ex-Candidate of the One Nation Party

Lin Shan Ju is definitely one of the most perplexing human beings to exist. Lin was apparently born in Taipei, and migrated to Australia. In terms of her career accolades they include:

  • Candidate for Katter’s Australian Party, a party with strong protectionist and Christian roots
  • Candidate for Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Party, a party famous for being anti-Asian, anti-Muslim and anti-multiculturalism. Lin was actually kicked from the One Nation Party, for being even too extreme for them. Her comments against the LGBTI community was just too much for even the posterchild party of bigotry in Australia.
  • President of the World Harmony Society, which makes little sense, as she herself is strongly against China who make up a large chunk of the world’s population.

A group looking to reform the Republic of China’s consitution through ideas such as electoral reform as well as changing the 92 consensus. They ultimately want to pursue a goal of ‘permanent peace’ by re-uniting or adhering to more to the mainland. Much of their ideology is based on PRC Xi’s call to for global unity.  They hope to make Taiwan a shining example of liberalism and spread it to the mainland after uniting.

Taiwan’s Election and A Comic

Recently Tsai Ing Wen has just become the first female president of the Republic of China. There are however many issues to be found within both major parties of Taiwan. The main one being that Tsai runs on a platform that supports discriminatory viewpoints towards mainland Chinese.

I am going to explain a comic through my own views from the artist Old Pei, who can be found here, as to share some light on the recent Taiwanese elections.

The Democratic Progressive Party are generally identified with the colour green, whilst their rivals, the Kuomintang “The Nationalist Party” (KMT) are commonly identified by the colour blue.
