In case you wonder why are #HongKong protests so well organised & coordinated

#BBC 2014:
"Protests as a weapon of mass destruction to challenge the Chinese government"



And surprise.... BBC redacted its article after #HongKong "activists" demand.

Shutting the stable door?…

Chinese Television perverting a well known text about Nazi Germany, which condemned staying silent in the face of injustice, by equating protestors in #HongKong with the Nazi persecutors & those standing in their way, i.e. China, with the victims of Hitler. Surreal. Revolting.
The original text, by German priest and anti-Nazi resistant fighter Martin Niemöller goes like this (rough translation):
When they came for the Communists, I staid silent. I wasn’t a communist.
When they came for the Social Democrats, I staid silent. I wasn‘t a social democrat.
When they came for the Jews, I staid silent, as I wasn‘t a Jew.
When they came for me, there was no one left to speak up.‘

When confronted with such situation, try your best to stay calm and not argue with them. Instead, calmly and solemnly sing (not yell) the hymn #SingHallelujahToTheLord. Why? (1)
Well, you may be aware that this hymn has been a big part of the #antiELAB movement in #HongKong. It conveys a message of peace and calm that serves as a stark contrast with the bombast of your opponents. (2)
The hymn also has the advantage of being in English, which can easily be understood (and even sung!) by the local community and the local press. Contrast that with your opponents who are slurring in another language and sound like a bunch of drunken football hooligans. (3)

Ever since #HongKong's protests began, I often got asked why the city's tycoons have stayed silent.

Today, HK's richest man Li Ka-shing has published two separate msgs on front pages newspapers across political spectrum.

Here are some interpretation on the 91-yo's wisdom:
The colour msg is more direct. It says “violence” with a cross through it, flanked by slogans calling for loving China and HK, and “stop anger and violence in the name of love”.
What not to miss is that it also says "the worst fruit [result] could be bore from the best cause".
The black-and-white msg is what left people guessing. It begins with: "As I have said before", & 8 Chinese characters: “The melon of Huangtai cannot bear the picking again.”

Li has used this line in addressing contentious political issues before. This is the story behind it:

So I am going to help explain why the Fuck these idiotic #HongKongProtests are happening. It has nothing to do with Chinese repression. It has nothing to do with supposed "peaceful protesters" who are being attacked. It's about the murder of a Pregnant Woman. #HongKongAirport
So at this point you're probably wondering "RED have you lost your mind?! The Chinese are rolling out the tanks at those poor kids like Tiananmen Square!
These are the "poor kids" assaulting people with metal poles that have both British and American flags on them.

We've seen the relatively new phenomenon of ‘Color Revolutions’ scar the social landscape of Europe in recent times.

They occurred twice in Ukraine w/ a recent attempt in Georgia.

They have also been initiated in Iran & w/ dire results in Syria.

Color revolutions are initiated in the West & are designed by the architects of chaos, the @CIA & @StateDept to initiate maximum subversion.

They depend upon the strategic use of targeted provocation.

This was most clearly seen on Kiev’s Maidan.

The @CIA & @StateDept use every device to encourage the discontented, disaffected & downright criminal in each nation it wants to subvert.

They locate misfits in those nations & use them as foot soldiers in undermining countries far from US shores.

"Freedom Fighters" according to #US elites:
_ Mujahideen in Afghanistan
_ Jihadists in Syria
_ Jihadists who reintroduced slavery in Libya
_ Death squads in Latin America
_ Saudi-backed mercenaries in Yemen
_ Neo-Nazis in Ukraine
#HongKong's thugs just been added to the list.
Part 2
"Freedom Fighters" according to #US elites:
_ KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army) in the War against Serbia
_ MEK (Mujahedin e Khalq) terrorist group in Iran
_ Jihadists in Chechnya, Russia (The Caucasus Emirate)
#HongKong's thugs just been added to the list.
No wonder those who really love freedom despise the #US regime for misusing this word to back extremist groups used to cause destabilization inside countries considered as enemies by Washington.

The answer - Yes. I think the EU will be in a recession with little to do about it (because their credit markets are already a mess) than to print money that will eventually devalue the Euro and only be a temporary fix. 2) #EURecession
I believe the UK will have a recession if they cannot find a solution to Brexit that does not solve the Irish issue, but if that issue is solved, and deals are made with North America and the Commonwealth, that can be reversed. 3) #BREXIT #Irish #US #Recession

We can confirm the presence of a large number of Chinese paramilitary troops stationed at a sports complex in Shenzhen, just miles from the border with Hong Kong. Some seen here carrying shields and helmets. An officer wouldn’t tell us why they were there and forced us to leave.
More images from outside the stadium, which has clearly been temporarily taken over by the People’s Amred Police Force (PAP). They are members of China’s 1.5 million member paramilitary force, which serves under the central military commission.
There was NO indication that these troops are set to imminently enter Hong Kong. There are myriad reasons why Beijing would want to avoid that. But their presence here is clearly meant to send a message.

Same people who’ve been pushing the free trade that’d fed the monster ( Communist Party ) & helped the rise of Nazi 2.0 now use HK to blame Trump.


#HongKong #HongKongAirport
Suddenly all Fredocons have waken the hell up & seen the monster CCP is.

Will they sacrifice their muh principle of free trade by STFU next time Trump slaps more tariffs on the CCP? 🤔

Here’s David French who’s been attacking Trump since the trade war has started-

If he’s serious, he would’ve called for the de-coupling of our economy from China.

This thread is dedicated to the important information that our "CIA" buries and unearths. May 24, 1984 was indeed an important day and it's not because he broke ground for the new HQ.
On May 24, 1984 the US House Delayed #GunReformNow Gun Vote on Red Flag Laws . Funny how this is soooooo coincidentally topic of discussion right now. 5/24/84
Crimes committed in El Salvador like what we seen in #HongKong today (another coincidence) and the Democrats were pushing for "aid" and the Republicans were saying NO - we will not intervene... in the end the Dems won and we know what happened when they got their way 5/24/84

@UNHumanRights @hrw @hrw_chinese 3/5: "For example, officials can be seen firing tear gas canisters into crowded, enclosed areas and directly at individual protesters on multiple occasions, creating a considerable risk of death or serious injury." @hrw @hrw_chinese

Arriba, una protesta donde se ha asesinado a 17 manifestantes, 1.800 heridos y donde se han usado granadas que seccionan manos y al Ejército

Abajo, una protesta sin un muerto en 42 días, donde hay más de 600 policías heridos y los manifestantes queman con molotov a policías.
Regla número 1: Cuando EL PAÍS habla bien de unos manifestantes, esos manifestantes son una mierda que solo sirve a los intereses de Washington, como por cierto, es EL PAÍS.
Algunas de las escenas de violencia de los manifestantes de Hong Kong (digo de HK aunque debería decir vasallos británicos) que, por supuesto no salen en las TV occidentales.

It is alarming to watch the #HongKong police with support from Beijing intensify their use of force against the protesters and label them violent criminals.
I urge Carrie Lam to meet with protest leaders to listen and act on their legitimate grievances including withdrawing the extradition bill, ending police violence & granting universal suffrage.
The people of Hong Kong are trying to preserve the promise of One Country - Two Systems. If we don’t speak out for human rights in China because of commercial interests, we lose all moral authority to speak out elsewhere.

1/ I am appalled and outraged by #HongKong police and their escalating violence and brutality towards peaceful protesters and journalists. I pray in particular for the young woman who was shot in her eye with a beanbag round at close range.
2/ The whole world is watching in real time. We know the truth and we will not be fooled by attempts to demonize these protesters. #HongKong authorities should not adopt mainland China’s tactics of suppression.
3/ I call on #CarrieLam to immediately begin a dialogue with protest leaders to address their legitimate grievances including withdrawing the extradition bill, ending police violence & granting universal suffrage. The only way forward is peaceful dialogue – not more violence.

The Hong Kong protestors are incredible:

“Hong Kong International Airport cancelled all departures on Monday, as thousands of anti-government protesters occupied and caused disruption.”…
“Outbound travel was suspended at #HongKong’s international airport Monday afternoon as thousands of black-clad protesters flooded the terminal, mobilized by anger over a night of police violence”…
“Dressed in black T-shirts & dust masks that have become de facto uniform of the movement,the visibly angry crowd chanted slogans such as “an eye for an eye!”-a reference to young woman whose blood-drenched face became iconic overnight.Many wore patches of gauze over right eyes”
