PQC: Folks, I know to most of you, what Hong Mongers have been doing sounds weird, But as I said, nationalism, patriotism, mother-fatherland-ism are all myths. When your personal interests, your family, your children’s safety, liberty, and happiness are at risk nationalism, patriotism, mother-fatherland-ism are the last things in your list! Been there done that!
I do understand why the Honkongers despise China and Beijing totalitarian system. I can wear these shoes of theirs! I fled the similar shithole of Vietnam. What I don’t understand is why do they have to kiss the Yanks’ ass? What do they expect to achieve? Have they ever considered the feasibility of their expectation?
One thing I know for sure that the Communist Party of China has been in between a rock and a hard place. They just could not risk their newly obtained super economy status with a disruption at international scale by a Tienanmen Square solution in Hong Kong, but they also just cannot let these “unpatriotic” “foreign lackeys” make them to lose face. Yet, to China, losing face is NOT very important in international arena- They have lost face many time- but is a big existential disaster in domestic theater! Tibet, Inner Mongolia Xinjiang Uyghur, and Taiwan are watching Hong Kong closely, and will learn very fast!
That said, if these Hong Kongers and the Jewish Yanks push too hard, the communist party of China, like every single government in this planet, will never hesitate to massacre its own people to preserve its political power! Even to go war with the Yanks! Anyone remember Catalans’ independence referendum?
At the end of the day, it’s the stupidity of the power hungers of the Communist Party of China is the problem and is to blame. They leave the Hongkongers, old and young, no choice but to fight them and side with the outsiders!
Folks, It’s my two-cents from my own experience. The last word is all yours!
