3 September 1900: The
Eight-Power Allied Forces occupied Beijing in the pretext
of protecting the interest of the church and began to hunt
down the resistance warriors - the Boxers - who were fighting against the
Christian crusade led by the missionaries from the West.
5 September: the crusaders broke into local residences and forced the locals
to collect crops in farmland to feed their horses. The
forced labourers were under the brutal surveillance of
the Western troops and
punished by flogging whenever they slowed down their work
pace. Sounds familiar? Yes, that's how they treated Mr. Obama's father's father's father's ... and Mrs Obama's
both father and mother, and father's mother, and mother's
father ... but you'd better not to mention this to them,
since it will surely make them blush ...
7 September: The crusaders
bombarded the West Red Gate (西红村) and attacked Yellow Village (黄村) in an attempt to kill resistance boxers there.
Consequently, the whole village was reduced to rubbles.
11 September: 1,700
crusaders armed with 6 cannons assaulted Liangxiang City
(良乡城) which was held by Boxers. Over 4,000 resistance
fighters and civilians were slaughtered by the Western troops.
16 September: During the operation
to locate remaining resistance fighters in Beijing's Badachu
(八大处), the crusaders blew away a Buddhist tower and
burned down Spiritual Light Monastery (灵光寺)
and Pen Ink Garden (笔墨园).
19 September: the
crusaders massacred more than a hundred villagers at Guanyin
Village (观音村) in Beijing's outskirt West Hill (西山). The entire village was destroyed under the
heavy barrage of cannon fire.
The so-called Eight-Power Allied Forces
include U.S.A., U.K., Japan, Germany and France. 111 years on, nothing seems
to have changed in this world. These are the same nations
sending troops to kill resistance fighters and civilians
in other countries at the moment ...... just by then they
did it in the name of God, now they are doing it in the
name of Democracy.
And the crusaders even have returned
to China. Watch this man, the descendent of an aggressive
missionary killed by angry Chinese villagers during Boxer
Rebellion, quite justifiably. With the help of evangelical
collaborators in Guangdong, he comes back to reclaim the
legacy of the old crusaders.
