America’s greatest information weapon may be its meme warriors. I think we need more memes critical of #China’s Communist Party. It’s only right that we mock, ridicule, castigate, lampoon, pillory, & parody this awful, IP-stealing, trade-cheating, #HumanRights violating-regime.
… I asked for memes, & the great people of #HongKong & their allies (follow em!) delivered. Here’s the first one I wanted to share (technically a cartoon, but a good one).

Hong Kong is the spark that could ignite the brushfires of freedom in #China. 🔥

… the next #ChinaMeme is sweet as 🍯.

#XiJinping — the Butcher of #Beijing — is famously insecure about being a doppelgänger for Winnie the Pooh. #China’s #GreatFirewall bans all images of the Pooh bear as subversive (so get creative, meme warriors!).

… this next #ChinaMeme is SMART. It ties together #BoycottMulan *and* the #CCP’s Han Supremacist ideaology.

#Mulan's family served the Northern Wei dynasty… a dynasty founded by a Turco-Mongol clan. Communist agitprop aside, they weren’t Han Chinese.

… let’s take a timeout and clarify one thing: the meaning of “meme.” Contrary to popular usage and understanding, a “meme” isn’t merely a viral image that’s copied, imitated, modified, repurposed, etc. The “meme” is actually the *idea* behind the image, not the image itself.
… the next #ChinaMeme catching fire 🔥 is the “#ChiNazi” meme… a direct and very apt comparison b/t Chairman #XiJinping & Hitler and b/t #China & Nazi Germany.

Variants include the tri-portmanteau #Chinaxi (China+Nazi+Xi) & #Xitler (Xi+Hitler).

… I like this one, which highlights #HongKong’s sudden Awakening.

The great people of HK have been quietly fighting back unrelenting attempts by #China’s Communists to strip away their autonomy ever since the handover.

This generation won’t take it.

… this great #ChinaMeme is a double taunt.

First, it pokes fun at #China for their inability to crush the #HongKong protests, because the #FreeWorld has decided to #StandwithHK.

Second, it does so w/ beloved British icon @MrBean (Rowan Atkinson CBE).

… the next #ChinaMeme‘s the #EyeforHK viral phenomenon. After a peaceful female protestor was shot in the eye by a #HongKong police officer, proponents of #HumanRights have begun posting selfies covering their eye.

Have you done one yet? #FreeHongKong
