我想,何韻詩的演藝事業最巔峰應該在此刻,站在瑞士日內瓦聯合國會議室內發言,促請聯合國人權理事會把中國除名。

Denise Ho Wan-see’s career as a Cantopop singer finally reached its pinnacle as she sat in a conference room at the United Nations office in Geneva demanding that the UN Human Rights Council expel China from the organization.

一個藝人淪落到要用叛國來爭取鎂光燈聚焦,對她個人來說,是可悲的;對國家民族來說,是可恨的;對香港人來說,是可恥的。

For an entertainer, there is nothing more pathetic than choosing to betray her own roots in exchange for five minutes of fame on camera. For a nation, it is detestable. And for Hong Kong, it is a shame.

11歲便隨家人移民加拿大,至今仍拿着加籍的何韻詩,自從回港參加第15屆新秀歌唱大賽奪冠後,便開始她在香港的演藝事業。同期的陳奕迅,容祖兒,楊千嬅今日已是天王巨星了,但何韻詩幾十年來卻仍在娛樂圈載浮載沉。

Ho immigrated to Canada with her family at the age of 11 and has been a Canadian national ever since. After winning a commercial singing contest in Hong Kong in 1996, she began pursuing a music career. Some of the other rising stars back then, such as Eason Chan Yick-shun, Joey Yung Cho-yee and Miriam Yeung Chin-wah, are now Cantopop superstars, while Ho has been barely afloat in the choppy waters of show biz.

仍有人認得她,是因為何韻詩一直活在別人的陰影下。唱歌時,大家會說這是梅艷芳的唯一女徒弟;演戲時,人人都誤認她是盧巧音。叫你隨口哼幾支何韻詩首本名曲,我相信問十個香港人九個半連歌名都想不出來,42歲仍沒有代表作,何韻詩的星途本來應該到此為止,直至那年,她在金鐘「佔領地」撐起一把黃傘……

Then the illegal movement of “Occupy Central” happened in the fall of 2014. She was one of the few “stars” who openly supported the disruptive political campaign. She was 37 and had not found the success she wanted in entertainment until then.

從此,何韻詩成了黃絲帶的偶像,從此,她的舞台轉到了街頭,最近一次高峰更是在聯合國。一個連香港娛樂圈都代表不了的落泊歌手,竟然可以站在日內瓦代表香港人發表人權宣言,大家終於見識到,原來聯合國這麼兒戲。

All of a sudden, Ho became an overnight sensation again, this time as an idol of the “Occupiers”. A struggling Canadian singer who cannot even represent the Cantopop community on the world stage somehow found her way into the UN and delivered a human rights speech “on behalf of” Hong Kong society.

兒戲的,還有香港人。一個拿着加拿大護照的藝人,大學讀了一半就回來唱歌,半紅不黑了幾十年,終於找到一個政治位華麗轉身成為民主女神,從此月旦國事家事天下事,竟然有人信還有追隨者。然而,追隨者是否知道,他們追捧的民主女神,又追隨了什麼人?

To Hong Kong residents, however, her rise to “goddess of democracy” status, a Canadian citizen in Hong Kong politics no less, could not be more ridiculous. But even more is that she does have some fans and worshippers. Speaking of worship, Ho’s mentor the late Anita Mui Yim-fong (1963-2003) passed away in December 2003 and apparently had nothing to do with her student’s decision to join “Occupy Central”. Ho now worships someone else.

何韻詩的樂壇師傅,是已過世的梅艷芳,但她的政壇師傅,卻是逃離中國的達賴喇嘛。

That person is none other than the 14th Dalai Lama. A few years ago, Ho was brought in front of Dalai Lama. She told him then: “You have tamed me.”

達賴是什麼人?香港教科書沒有教,九成九香港人對他一無所知,以為他是一個投奔西方民主自由社會的西藏喇嘛。

Dalai Lama has been flown around the world by his US handlers much of his life now, giving speeches to all kinds of audiences who know little if anything about his past. Most people in Hong Kong don’t know who he really is, either because local schools don’t teach Tibetan history, except perhaps that he is a Tibetan Buddhist now living in the “free world”.

在西方國家四處演講的達賴我們見得多,但未離開中國的達賴你們又見過未?幾年前聽過專研中國歷史的退休總警司曾財安先生關於西藏的演講,回去翻查史料,看到達賴的驚人過去。

Before the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951, the region had been ruled by the dominant Tibetan Buddhist sect for centuries, and the current Dalai Lama, approved by the national government of Chiang Kai-shek, had been the de facto ruler of Tibet for nine years. Until the 1950s, Tibet had been a society of serfdom for generations under the cruel rule of “living Buddhas” known in the West only as the “spiritual leader of Tibetan people”.

距今不遠,只是68年前,因為政教合一,達賴是當時西藏的最高統治者,在他掌權的九年間,西藏仍有佔人口90%的農奴,是全世界唯一僅存的奴隸社會,即是說,達賴是世上最大的奴隸集團首領。

Although there are historical records as well as material evidence proving Tibetan serfdom was one of the most inhumane systems ever existed, most people today still have no knowledge of the sheer horror that numerous Tibetan serfs were subjected to, generation after generation. And it was the last of its kind — institutionalized slavery — in the modern world until 1951.

農奴除了受貴族及大喇嘛這些奴隸主勞役,做錯事的懲罰也異常恐怖。斬手斬腳挖眼割舌是常事,最重刑是活剝人皮。他們剝皮不用刀,而是用水銀,在身體切開一個缺口,將水銀灌進皮膚和肌肉之間,水銀有重量也有毒,慢慢皮肉會分開,剝皮後奴隸不會立即死去,殘酷程度難以想像。

During the nine years under the rule of Dalai Lama, up to 90 percent of Tibetans were serfs by birth. That means the 14th Dalai Lama was in theory the biggest slave owner in history. Apart from hard labor, serfs were often tortured for any or no reason, and that included mutilation, having their eyeballs gauged out and being skinned alive. As a matter of fact, there are quite a few well-preserved complete human skins in the prized collections of certain Western museums, including two in the US, presented by Dalai Lama himself as gifts. Yes, he took the finest of them from the Potala Palace when he fled Tibet.

當時中央政府一直要廢除農奴制,但達賴和一班奴隸主卻諸多阻撓,結果1959年西藏發生叛亂,達賴帶同六、七百隨從、官員及親屬逃亡海外,當時他就帶走了67件人皮製品及人骨法器,用來送給收容他的西方國家。史書記載,達賴送給美國政府的,是兩塊全世界最美的人皮,除了剝得精準,更因為人皮上繪了西藏佛像的唐卡畫。

The armed insurgency he and his followers, most of them aristocrats and serf owners, waged was a failed attempt to prolong their brutal rule in resistance against the central government’s determination to abolish it for good. With no small help from the CIA, he took at least 67 valuable pieces of “religious items” with him when he fled to India, including complete human skins and some other macabre artifacts.

血腥的手,在西方包裝下,一轉身變成民主的神。幾年前,何韻詩拜見達賴時握着這雙把玩人皮的手說:「我被你馴服了。」

Thanks to fancy packaging by the Western powers, Dalai Lama transformed from a ruthless ruler with the blood of serfs on his hands into “a symbol of hope” for freedom and democracy to the people he left behind.

讀過達賴的過去,看看今天站在聯合國演講的達賴徒弟何韻詩,你還相信西方舞台上真的有是非善惡?

What Dalai Lama and his follower Ho represent is nothing but lies about the past, present and future.
