The sedition and insurrection rioters have failed.

-20 ( +5 / -25 )

Brutal dictatorship is what is in store for HK.

China will destroy this wonderful place and turn it into the cesspool that the mainland China is!!!

Guns beat umbrellas.Fear beats freedom.

Hong Kongers can still try to storm the main government building and force out the swamp by shear people power.

However, that would most likely fail and then they'd be branded seditionists by the Chinese media and imprisoned.

Status Quo wins pretty easily these days.

The Chinese for "patriots" translates properly as "poodles" in English. History will not be kind to the cruel bullies of Beijing.

Hong Kongers can still try to storm the main government building and force out the swamp by shear people power.

Hong Kongers are collectively protesting forced the intrusion of a dictatorial governement they never voted for into their democratic process. Not trying to overturn elections their candidate lost fair and square. Can you comprehend the difference? So please do keep the false equivalencies for your Parler account.

Compromise is better than conflict.

Compromise is what Hong Kong had. Until China broke their agreement.

China has killed the Golden Goose that was Hong Kong. You can be sure that Taiwanese are watching. So much for "peaceful reunification" in our lifetime.

This is a subjective analysis.

Who decides which government is legitimate and which is not?

There are a billion Chinese who live in a different media bubble than you do and assert that the Hong Kongers are seditionists.

The crux of your argument is basically, "my media bubble is correct and the other guy's is wrong"

Patriots= Beijing puppets.

No it isn't.

Who decides which government is legitimate and which is not?

Fair elections.

The crux of your argument is basically, "my media bubble is correct and the other guy's is wrong"

No it isn't. The crux of my argument is : "don't equate people fighting against a dictatorship with people fighting for a dictatorship".

I will let you guess on which side "trying to overturn the results of a fair election violent actions based on provable lies" falls on.

In a democracy I assume the majority of citizens.

Sad to see HK just turn into some random Chinese city now. No one will want to go there for work or tourism anymore. It's dead.

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Never going to China, ever....

Another jackboot step in the depressing suppression of Hong Kong.

I was just looking yesterday at someone else's photographs of the vibrant street life of the old HK and wishing like hell that I'd gone and experienced it for myself years ago when I had the chance. I wouldn't go now for all the tea in China. That's gallows humour - seems to me Hong Kongers are going to need it from here on in.

Who decides which government is legitimate and which is not?

The people as expressed through this process called voting. We know it might not be done that way in your country, but it is a real thing.

The only countries backing this subjugation of democracy are criminal states like China and Russia.

The free world needs to take a stance , otherwise HKers will end up like Uyghurs and Tibetans!!!!!

When the govt doesn't want to listen to the governed, a dictatorship happens. Until larger numbers of citizens die, the dictatorship will win.

Time to add Xia to the list of anti-Hong Kong people.

Just proves that it is easier to destroy that to build. CCP-Chinese know this.

Despicable, but this is no shock to anyone. Every Hong Konger with half a brain is right now in the process of applying to emigrate while it is still legal, either to the UK if they are over 24, or elsewhere if younger.

Make no mistake - HK is now effectivly a Communist, anti-democratic state. Anyone who visits, trades with or deals with HK and their disgusting government supports authoritarianism, hates freedom and despises human rights.

Boycott HK - Boycott China.

The current pro-China government won the election fair and square.

If you think the Hong Kong election was "stolen" then prove it.

What are you even talking about ?!

388 seats were pro dem, while 89 were pro Beijing during the last election, 2019.

In what reality are you living in? The pro-Beijing party overwhelmingly lost in the last election.

While visiting China some years ago, I was told that China is like Europe.

My informer added: "To people in Beijing, Hong Kong is like Portugal, a foreign country full of different people."

By stamping control over it now, ignoring proud and patriotic Hong Kong lovers, in the same manner as with Mongolia, Urumqi (Xinjiang) and Tibet, China will ensure CCP temporary rule, but equally, that no other nearby nation will give an inch, even a centimeter.

Wait, what? What year or parallel universe are you living in? Are we talking about the 2019 election in Hong Kong, the clashes there and so on?

Judging by the narratives you're using not just under this topic, I'm beginning to believe you're a russian troll.

Using your narrative

If you think the Hong Kong election was "stolen" then prove it.

if you think i'm wrong, then prove it.

CHINA THE TROUBLE MAKER?

Hong-Kong, Tibet, Xinjian, Taiwan, Ladakh and many more China has always been a troublemaker as it follows its expansion policy and anti-human rights policy. It has always created mess everywhere. Whereas after the conversation between both the presidents of U.S. and China whereby Mr. Biden warned and asked china not to interfere too much otherwise the trade will be affected. After that also CCP didn’t even stopped once to impose and show its cruelty.

Patriotism test is how authoritarians mind-control citizens

Oh gawd... CCP boot licking "patriots" that aren't democratically elected by the free decisions of the people of HK. I hope the CCP goes down hard and miserably for the excrement they've pulled for decades.
