Worship of Dead Presidents

I returned last Sunday from an around weeklong trip to Taipei, where they apparently have no scruples against worshipping the traitor-in-chief to Imperial China, Dr. Sun Yat-sen:

When Dr. Sun Yat-sen demised less than a decade and a half after the overthrow of the Qing dynasty, one of his closest, Chiang Kai-shek, remained in charge through various posts for around fifty years until his own demise.

They overthrew the Qing dynasty, to have a revolutionary general in charge for half a century, longer than most monarchs remain on the throne.

And they worship him as well:
