Rob Schmitz to FLG, “wtf”
For people who have wondered why the Chinese government cracks down on the FLG, supposedly a ‘spiritual movement,’ well, the following Tweet from reporter Rob Schmitz says it all. Marketplace from American Public Media is one of my favorite shows on NPR that I listen to. Schmitz has been in the news more, lately, because he exposed Mike Daisey’s lies about Foxconn. Anyways, Schmitz reports out of Shanghai for Marketplace. China politely and quietly takes this nonsense as the National Endowment for Democracy sponsors such political opposition. “WTF” is indeed the appropriate response, though Schmitz may not be reacting as broadly as I am.
