This woman was an enthusiastic supporter of a decade-long campaign of state-sanctioned terror against China's own civilian population. A campaign in which millions were tortured, killed, and forced to live in misery and servitude for even the slightest perceived questioning of communist ideology.

The idea that she now wants to raise capital for the publication of her book titled "Across Oceans and Revolution: A Principled Life"... I don't know if it makes me want to laugh or cry! But hey, I guess if she didn't question her principles while all of those families were being dragged away never to be seen again, a little hypocrisy won't make her question them either.
