A follow-up on the Falun Gong protester who shouted down Chinese president Hu Jintao last week (via Breitbart/AP):

A woman who heckled Chinese President Hu Jintao on the White House lawn, said her protest was a spontaneous reaction to China’s suppression of the Falungong spiritual movement.

Wang Wenyi, 47, interrupted the elaborate welcome ceremony laid on by President George W. Bush on Thursday by shouting abuse at the Chinese leader for several minutes before she was detained by Secret Service agents.

Writing in the New York-based Falungong mouthpiece, The Epoch Times, Wang, who had gained access to the ceremony with a press pass from the newspaper, said her original intention had been simply to report on the event.

“However, when I saw President Bush shake hands with Hu Jintao, I couldnt help but cry out,” she said.

“I cried out for those who have been tortured and suffered genocidal persecution,” she added.

AFP adds: “Wang was arraigned in court on Friday and charged with seeking to “intimidate, coerce, frighten or harass Chinese President Hu Jintao, a foreign official in the performance of his duty.” A preliminary hearing for a trial will be held on May 3.”

I think it would be a crying shame for Wang’s case to move ahead while accused cop-assaulter Cynthia McKinney skates.

Message to Wang’s prosecutors: Drop it.
