蘋論:林慧思老師是香港人的榜樣小學老師林慧思事件,在這個時刻出現,對香港市民帶來相當重要的啟示,它向我們展示了甚麼是愛憎分明,甚麼是「香港核心價值」,甚麼是我們該維護和該奮力反對的,面對不公義的事是挺身而出還是明哲保身,以及最適時的是:我們為甚麼要公民抗命?前兩天在電視播出的港台節目《卓越教室2013》,介紹了寶血會培靈學校積極推行「生命教育」,其中以相當多篇幅,敍述了獲行政長官卓越教學獎(德育及公民教育)的 林慧思,如何在教學以外,關心學生成長。她表現的對學生的關懷愛護,與家長的聯繫,親送父母不在香港的學生回家,她的言行展現了愛心。這一集精采動人的報道,早前卻一度因為 林慧思 與警察在街頭對罵的視頻,而據說考慮擱置。不過最終還是如期播出。
林慧思 與警察對罵,發生在本月14日旺角街頭。一段以「香港警察忍功一流」為題的5分鐘視頻,7月22日開始流傳,片中一位女士罵警察「八婆、賤人、八公、What the f××k!」。其後網民把當事人的真名、學校、校址和電話公開,呼籲向教師、校方投訴「為警隊爭番口氣」。女教師 林慧思 任教的學校收到很多投訴,左報加入對 林慧思 口誅筆伐。最不尋常的是:「警察員佐級協會」和「警務督察協會」都發聲明,譴責 林慧思「粗言穢語,非理性辱罵執法警務人員」。在種種壓力下,「寶血會培靈學校」被迫發聲明道歉。但接下來許多完整的視頻出現了。原來當天是法輪功在街頭展示中共摘取死囚器官販賣的惡行,親共團體「青年關愛協會」闖過去用大型橫幅遮擋法輪功攤位,「警察」不但對「青關會」坐視不理,而且把附近路面用封鎖線圍起來不准路人進入。林慧思 路見不平,走進封鎖線內與警察理論,問何以縱容「青關會」干預表達自由。警察說要抓她,她氣不過就說;「我一定站在這裏,跟你們鬥企,你們不是第一次這樣對法輪功,我不是法輪功的人,我是真真正正的香港人。我看不順眼你們「青年關愛協會」,這樣叫關愛?這樣是侮辱我們香港市民。你羞不羞恥?警察還幫他們?人家有言論自由,如果共產黨做得對,幹嘛做這種缺德事?令人更加憎中國共產黨,邪惡到不得了。」她又罵警察是「公安」,然後講了上引的惡言和英文粗話。街上爆粗的 林慧思,與《卓越教室2013》中對學生溫柔愛護備至的 林慧思是同一人嗎?是的。正是對孩子有這樣深切的愛,才會有對於戕殺我們核心價值的「青關會」的疾惡如仇,以及對維護「青關會」的警務人員的厲聲譴責。不該說粗話嗎?筆者至今記得中共建政初期的一部改編自老舍小說的電影《我這一輩子》,影片中那個一輩子盡忠職守的警察,竟因為沒有照國民黨政府的上級命令殘暴鎮壓學生而被關進監牢,一輩子善良的老頭子在牢中氣得大罵:「我操你媽的祖奶奶」。這句粗話你不會去思考它的含義,不會覺得難以接受,反而覺得解恨。林慧思 的粗話也可作如是觀。

2007年香港回歸十周年前夕,大陸媒體《南方周末》發表一篇文章《你可能不知道的香港》,文章開頭說:「……從2003年『自由行』開始,也確實有越來越多的內地居民來到香港,然而即便是如我這般多次踏足港九大地的內地人,仍然會不時有文化休克的感覺。一出紅磡火車站,就會看見一大堆標語,看得初到香港的內地人膽戰心驚。在天星碼頭,也會有人向你散發海報、小冊子。在香港隨處可以看到這樣的一些在內地鮮見的異議人士。這證明香港是享有言論自由的,你只發表政治意見,不搞行動顛覆,香港是可以無視你的存在的。」文章所指的令內地人膽戰心驚的標語,就是法輪功的橫幅。文章講了許多關於香港的自由法治的具體表現,包括「駐港部隊的軍車也許是中國最遵守交通規則的軍車」,但列為第一項,就是言論自由。筆者也同「林慧思」老師一樣,絕不支持法輪功,但也為了體現香港仍有言論自由這個核心價值,堅決維護法輪功有表達自由的權利,而且這權利正是大陸人所羨慕並希望取得的。一如「林慧思」說,「青關會」正在侮辱我們香港人。

現在香港處於甚麼時刻呢?是梁振英的港共政權聯同它幕後支撐的「愛」字頭團體,向香港固有的核心價值全面進攻的時刻。在街頭看到那一幕,你可以走開,可以明哲保身,但愛憎分明的林慧思不畏權勢發出怒吼,在香港享有自由的人都無權責備她,而只有敬重她。「林慧思」老師毋須道歉。你是香港人的榜樣,你的作為是我們參與公民抗命的思想意識的起點。

Translated by Google, sorry about the bad translation!
Apple: the Lin Huisi teacher was an example to the people of Hong KongElementary school teacher Lin Huisi event, in this moment, to produce important insight on the people of Hong Kong, it shows us what is plainly, what is “Hong Kong s core values”, what we are the maintenance and the struggle to oppose, in the face of unjust things is fight or flight is self-preservation, and most timely are: why do we need civil disobedience? Two days ago in a television broadcast on RTHK the remarkable class of 2013, Pui ling introduces the precious blood primary school actively promote “life education”, with quite a lot of space, described the Chief Executive’s award for teaching excellence (moral and civic education) Lin Hui-Si, in addition to teaching, concerned about students ‘ growth.She did care for students, contact with parents, send parents not in Hong Kong students home, her words and actions show the love. This set of brilliant and moving report, earlier because Lin Huisi and the police video of insults in the streets, and is said to be considering shelving.
But eventually aired as scheduled. Lin Huisi and the police called, happened on 14th Street in Mong Kok. “Hong Kong Police class” 5-minute video titled, July 22, began to spread, a woman called police in “(foul language used and deleted)”. Subsequently Internet user’s real name, school parties, school site and the phone open, appeals to the teachers, the schools complaints “for the tone of the police force”. Lin Huisi female teachers taught the school received a lot of complaints, joined Lin Hui left ideological and vocal opposition. The most unusual is: “the police rank and file associations” and “Police Inspector Association” issue a statement condemning Lin Hui-Si “abusive, irrational abusive law enforcement officers”.Under the pressure, “precious blood Pui ling school” was forced to issue a statement to apologize. But many of the next full video appeared. Is Falun Gong show the Chinese Communists in the streets on the day of removal of organs trafficking death row, and pro-Communist Group “youth care Association” large banner blocking Falun Gong stands for make it, “police” not only for the “green customs” indifferent and allow passers-by to enter pavements near the perimeter fence. Hui Lin see inequality, walked into the within the cordon and police theory, asked why the apologia “green customs” intervention in the freedom of expression. Police said to arrest her, she qibuguo said; “I’m standing here, fight with you, and you wouldn’t be the first time that Falun Gong, I’m not Falun Gong people, I was really the people of Hong Kong. I hate you “youth care Association”, called love? This is an insult to us the people of Hong Kong. You too proud not ashamed? Police also help them? People have freedom, if the Communist Party did the right thing, why do such wicked things? More hate the Chinese Communist Party, evil that is serious.”She called the police a” public order “, and spoke evil made on English swear words. Detroit Lin Hui-Si on the street, and the excellent gentle care and solicitude of the students in the class of 2013 Lin Huisi’s the same person? Yes. It is has such a deep love for the baby, kill kill is only the core values of our “green customs” have an abhorrence of evil, as well as for the maintenance of the “green customs” talk harshly condemned by police officers. You shouldn’t say swear words? I remember the build early political in a movie adapted from Lao She’s fictions of the my life, the lifetime of devotion to the police in the movie, because as he was the Kuomintang government ordered violent repression of students and was in jail, gas-insulted the kind old man (foul language used and deleted)”.”. Meaning that foul language you will not to think about it, would have no difficulty accepting, rather think that vent one’s hatred.Lin Huisi swear words can also be levying. 2007 eve of the anniversary of the return of Hong Kong, mainland media of the southern weekend published an article in the Hong Kong you might not know, the beginning of the article says: “… … From the 2003 “freedom row” began, certainly there are an increasing number of mainland residents coming to Hong Kong, however even if I set foot on the Mainland of the Hong Kong and Kowloon land many times people will still feel culture shock from time to time. A Hung Hom train station, you’ll see a lot of banners, first came to Hong Kong people in the Mainland have to tremble. At the Star Ferry Pier, and there will be posters, pamphlets distributed to you. Everywhere in Hong Kong can see some uncommon dissent in the Mainland. This proves that Hong Kong enjoys freedom of expression, you only make political comments, not to engage in subversive action, Hong Kong can ignore you there. “Referred to in article so that mainland people tremble with fear of slogans, is Falun Gong banner. Articles talked a lot about the free manifestation of the rule of law in Hong Kong, including “garrison of military vehicles might be most abide by traffic regulations of military vehicles in China”, but as the first item, is freedom of speech. The author with “Lin Hui-Si” teacher, never support Falun Gong, but also to reflect our freedom with the core values, safeguard Falun Gong has the right to freedom of expression, and this right is envied and desired by mainland people.

As “Lin Hui-Si” says, “green customs” are insulting our people of Hong Kong. Now that Hong Kong is in what time? Total regime was Leung Chun-ying, Hong Kong, together with its support behind “love” word groups, to the moment of the core values of Hong Kong’s traditional all-out assault. See that scene in the street, you can walk away, self-preservation, but evidently issued Lin Huisi defying powerful roar of people enjoy freedom in Hong Kong have no right to blame her, and respects her. “Lin Hui-Si” teachers do not have to apologize.

You are an example to the people of Hong Kong, you as the ideological starting point is our participation in the civil disobedience.
