the bravery of the people of Hong Kong. In a rare moment of activity, our congress actually passed a resolution, in support of the people of Hong Kong.
There is a striking juxtaposition of the Hong Kong protester standing up to the goliath of china’s communist rule against the backdrop of our democrat quizzlings “standing up to” the duly elected president: the former is an expression of the desire to live in accordance of one’s inalienable rights, while the latter is to subvert the results of democratic election.
And to say the people of Hong Kong are brave is an understatement. The chinese communist government has no concept of human rights: just look at their orwellian social credit score, or their concentration camps for political dissidents, or their harvesting of organs from live falun gong members, or just take a look at the Tiananmen Square massacre:
The west always shows the first image. And never shows what happened after nightfall when the chinese communists brought in mongolian troops to kill the protesters, since the chinese troops would not fire on their own people: they ran over and killed everyone in the square. They had to use bulldozers to scrape the human remains off the ground.
I hope this ends well.
