Posted on 05/03/2012 5:26:25 AM PDT by Hojczyk
In an exclusive interview with The Daily Beasts Melinda Liu, blind dissident Chen Guangcheng says hes been abandoned by American officials at a Chinese hospital and begs to leave the country on Hillary Clintons plane.
Ive known Chen Guangcheng for more than a decadehes been through intimidation, beatings, jail, and extralegal house arrestbut through it all I never sensed he was scared. Now hes scared. Chen, whose case has escalated into a bilateral crisis that threatens to dominate Secretary of State Hillary Clintons visit to Beijing this week, was weeping as he talked to me over the phone from his hospital bed.
When U.S. officials escorted him out of the U.S. embassy shortly after 3 p.m. Wednesday, Chen thought hed extracted a promise that at least one of them would stay with him at the hospital, he said.
Many Americans were with me while I checked into the hospital and doctors examined me. Lots of them, he told me from his hospital bed, where hes being treated for broken bones in one foot, an injury sustained when he fell after climbing a wall during his daring escape from house arrest late last month. But when I was brought to the hospital room, they all left
. I dont know where they went. The ordeal was all the more bewildering because Chen is blind and was hurt during his escape; he needs crutches or a wheelchair to move around.

Chen, this poor Chinaman, should have studied past and present U.S, history.
Hillary Clinton is a pathilogial LIAR.
Obama LIES to the American Public and Congress EVERYDAY.
If they both lie to Americans, what made Chen think they would tell the truth to just 1 Chinaman.
.... and leave Hillary in China.
And this is how you divide the good from the bad.
And past and present Chinese history. He was incredibly brave, but he ran a huge risk of incurring fatal Party displeasure. Hoping the US would save him was a very iffy plan. If he had garnered just a bit less publicity, he'd have disappeared and we wouldn't be talking about the US role.
I guess if he wanted to be free, he should have defected to the Russian embassy.
My bet is he already has a bullet in his head, his body stripped bare with acid, his bones crushed up and the remains sprinkled in some place ironically called Freedom Park.
As soon as that plane takes off for the US or wherever Hillary is going next to get payola, Chen is dead and there will never be a mention of it again.
I am afraid the Obama admin. is (ab)using this poor fellow, not helping him, so far.
What was Joe Biden’s infamous phrase:
“Stand up, Chen, so that everyone can see you. Oh, we gave you back to Communists. Sorry about that.”
Arkansas suicide with Chinese takeout bump.
What made him think one set of commies would betray another set of commies. Marxists are thick as thieves.
Ever wonder why our activist’s never want to leave here?
Tell him to stay there and make changes and be an activist.
China owns U.S.
Do you think Barry or Hill are going to do anything that even remotely ticks them off. Not a chance.
That’s the truth.
The more I learn about this “activist”, the more I am convinced that he is a loud-mouthed, demanding sorehead of the Keith Olbermann variety.
Every society has people like that, and they invariably piss off the authorities, then play martyr if and when the authorities have enough of their noise and sit on them.
The Soviet Union used to be very big on embracing such fools in the US, yet from our point of view they were real dorks, and often criminal ones.
This is not an apologetic for China, which as is plainly obvious has its basket full of bad problems, bad solutions, and general inefficient oppression and corruption.
But just to point out that just because someone is in opposition neither means that they are virtuous nor sensible, and we need to discriminate between legitimate criticism being suppressed and the rantings of Keith Olbermann type soreheads.
This administration cannot support someone who is pro-life.
So because he wants to stop forced abortions and forced sterlizations he is a loud-mouthed demanding sorehead? What would you do in his situation?
