Maybe it sounds more convincing in Mandarin
Opponents of the KMT often characterize the party as "alien" to Taiwan. A vile slander, of course -- and KMT Chairman Ma Ying-jeou is sick and tired of it. To show just how unfair the stereotype is, Ma told a story the other day about Sun Yat-sen passing through Taipei in 1913 on his way to exile in Japan. Apparently a Taiwanese painter named Liao Chin-ping donated some money to Sun, and Sun reciprocated the gift with a bottle of whiskey. The whiskey was so meaningful to Liao, and indeed the entire Liao family, that Liao's son treasured and safeguarded it even after his father...
...was put to death by the KMT!
"Those who claimed that Kuomintang is an alien regime are just ignorant of the history," Ma said.
That's the kind of logic you can't argue with.
