Our John Liu coverage, like the Liu coverage elsewhere, draws an unusual level of commenter vitriol.
Sometimes the commenters mention the fact that Liu’s father was convicted for bank fraud. Usually the criticism of Liu, a councilmember from Queens who was born in Taiwan, is less specific, and amounts to name-calling.
Many of the anti-Liu comments sound alike, and seem to stem from an ongoing conflict taking place far from City Hall.
The criticisms are similar in spirit, at least, to the stories about Liu that appear frequently in The Epoch Times, a free newspaper that was founded in 2000 by practitioners of Falun Gong in New York.
