Hong Kong

Maybe it’s time Vancouverites started having massive protests against the price of housing too!

It’s always the same pretty well everywhere where the rich control the poor whether it be a dictatorship like China or a democracy like Canada.

Thank you Canadian ICM for finally hinting apologetically (kind off),  admitting that people aren't so fucking stupid to all get so worked up over a bill that will never have any afect on them for their entire lives!

I was on this forum in the "Demonization of China" thread suggesting that the protestors in Hong Kong were pissed at other things. But Timebandit wouldn't have any of that! It somehow had to be all about the evil communist Beijing.

Kudos to NDPP for keeping his eye on the ball and trusting the ICM is full of shit anti communist propaganda!

Anyways, as far as I'm aware, Hong Kongers can now more easily immigrate into China. Seaking opportunities there where housing is more affordable. But not according to the western ICM, Beijing is bad evil and wants to destroy freedom!

Also with the new bridges connecting Hong Kong Macau and Zhuhai, Hong Kongers can live and commute more easily in ShenZhen and elsewhere practically in Guandong.

'Did the Colonisers Ever Give Hong Kong Democracy?'

"The answer to all the questions raised by China's statement on Hong Kong is a resounding NO. But, to Western liberal imperialism these historical facts are irrelevant. The West's hypocrisy is unique. It commits horrendous genocide and preaches human rights with a straight face."

"Just as the US admitted shortly after the so-called 'Arab Spring' began spreading chaos across the Middle East that it had fully funded, trained and equipped both mob leaders and heavily armed terrorists years in advance, it is now admitted that the US State Department through a myriad of organizations and NGOs is behind the so-called 'Occupy Central' protests in Hong Kong.

The regressive agenda of 'Occupy Central's' US-backed leadership, and their shameless exploitation of the good intentions of the many young people ensnared by their gimmicks, poses a threat in reality every bit as dangerous as the 'threat' they claim Beijing poses to the island of Hong Kong and its people. Hopefully the people of China, and the many people around the world looking on as 'Occupy Central' unfolds, will realize this foreign-driven gambit and will stop it before it extracts the heavy toll it has on nations that have fallen victim to it before..."

Canadian MSM, CBC, le Devoir, etc. are having a field day with Hong Kong, neglecting other more serious tragesdies like Yemen.  The HK official gov't wants to be able to send criminals, from the rest of China, seeking refuge in HK, back home. Imagine if criminals in Canada could find refuge in Halifax.  The anti-communist, anti-China demonstators are lead by leaders supported by Freedom House and National Endowment for Democracy (they're heroic promoter of Democracy!)  And Trudeau's appointees Wilson-R (Justice) and Freelend (Global) are so proud to have arrested, for at least one year, top China business person, Mme Meng.

The prospects are dismal. Too many swallow whatever the msm says hook, line and sinker on this and other issues of critical concern. The problems facing us are immense yet a dumbing down/propaganda system ensures compliance, cooption and confusion.  Our politicians, all sides, are a joke which we continue to allow to be played upon us over and over again. We pretend things are other than what they really are.  'Things fall apart, the centre cannot hold.'

Hong Kong 'Peaceful Protesters'

https://twitter.com/VeraVanHorne/status/1150837838893801475

"Peaceful protesters' in UK...using CIA playbook to manipulate police into using weapons. Then, like in Syria and Ukraine, corporate media would publish photos of government forces holding guns. Against 'unarmed protesters'."

Taken from this link

The bill, which would have allowed people in Hong Kong to be sent to mainland China to face trial in courts controlled by the ruling Communist Party, sparked huge and at times violent street protests and plunged the former British colony into turmoil.

"people in Hong Kong"??? The writer was supposed to write, "people in Hong Kong accused with committing a crime"

Here's another stupid bullshit comment loved by brainwashed western imperialist sympathizing shit for brains

Hong Kong is governed under a “one country, two systems” formula that allows freedoms not enjoyed in mainland China, including the right to protest and an independent judiciary.

Right to protest? I've seen protests in mainland China. I think what the writer of this ICM article means by writing "freedoms not allowed in mainland China " would be getting up on a pedestal with a megaphone and ranting about how terrible the government is. I'm guessing that would also be a freedom that Canadians enjoy as well? I'm yet to enjoy this freedom. I wonder if the writer of this anti communist ICM article has ever "enjoyed" this freedom he/she is boasting about? And I'm guessing no. They're full of shit!

More than 30 Hongkongers who fear prosecution for their involvement in the ransacking of the finance hub’s legislature on 1 July have arrived in Taiwan to seek shelter, Taiwan’s Apple Daily said, citing unnamed sources.

The Guradian sure does the imperial spin and whitewash well on its stories.  Note that they have not actually been charged but given the videos they know they are going to proven guilty if charged. I can well imagine the fine press  protestors in Toronto would get when they ransacked Queen's Park because of Ford's outrageous legislation on many fronts.

I remember the great elections that the people of Hong Kong had under British rule. That's right the ones that did not even include electing the Governor because a white Englishman was required for that all important job. 

Look at the absurd demands in their Manifesto.  This is Hong Kong's equivalent of the black bloc demanding that the BC Legislature disband and that they not be charged for vandalizing it in Victoria.

The march had been peaceful when it reached its police-designated end point in Hong Kong's Wan Chai district in the late afternoon. But thousands continued onward, at various points occupying key government and business districts. They then headed for the Liaison Office, which represents China's Communist Party-led central government within the city.

Protesters threw eggs at the building and spray-painted its surrounding surveillance cameras. China's national emblem, which adorns the front of the Liaison Office, was splattered with black ink. The Liaison Office said in comments published on Chinese state media that the acts "openly challenged the authority of the central government and touched the bottom line of the 'one country, two systems' principle."

...

Protesters repeated the five points of their "manifesto," which was first introduced when a small group of them stormed the legislature earlier this month. Their main demands include universal suffrage — direct voting rights for all Hong Kong residents — as well as dropping charges against anti-extradition protesters, withdrawing the characterization of a clash between police and protesters as a "riot" and dissolving the Legislative Council.
