EXPANSION OF COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEWS

 

“Violence flares as thousands defy police ban to march in downtown Hong Kong

“Latest pro-democracy protest Sunday comes day after 12 arrested, 25 injured in mall clash”

 

These foolish demonstrators are going to “kill the goose that laid the golden egg.”

The kind of international business interests which make Hong Kong hum and thrive are completely averse to this kind of chaotic public behavior.

Of course, the demonstrators are being covertly encouraged and supplied by the American State Department as part of Trump’s war on China, but still, it is their home, and they foolishly work hard promoting its decline.

And, you know, a lot of what we call “democracy” in the “West” isn’t quite what it’s cracked up to be. The realities don’t come anywhere near the glib slogans.

Americans in 2016, had a choice in voting for President between two figures taken from Madame Tussaud’s Chamber of Horrors, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. No matter which of them won the election, the Pentagon and CIA and NSA were the real winners. Average people had to lose.

The American Congress has been characterized, quite accurately, as “the best government money can buy.” It serves the interests of those who provide it with generous campaign funds, without exception.

Average Americans see their tax dollars spent on wars and killing and spying, themselves having no healthcare, often poor schools, and even contaminated drinking water in a number of cases.

America’s wonderful police forces kill an average of three Americans per day, every day, more than any terrorist could dream of. America’s prisons are packed. The country has the highest incarceration rate in the world.

Response to a comment saying, “What is happening to the people of Venezuela is shameful. What’s worse is Canada is involved due to Freeland.”

Thank you. A vital perspective.

What America has done in Venezuela is far more terrifying than what we see in Hong Kong.

The United States is denying millions of people food and necessities through embargo, and it has cut their ability to trade and earn a living.

It has turned off their entire electrical grid several times, hurting millions of ordinary people. It literally has stolen some of the country’s assets abroad to hand over to an unelected opposition.

There was an attempt on President Maduro’s life. And all kinds of serious threats and rumblings continue in an effort to intimidate and create fear.

China has been what can only be called genuinely restrained in the face of the demonstrations, and despite the annoying fact that they know the demonstrators are incited and financially supported by State Department representatives.

Also, compare the killing and maiming of the Les Gilets Jaunes by Macron in the streets of Paris. Eleven have been killed.

Or, even worse, the mass killing of more than two hundred unarmed demonstrators by Netanyahu in Gaza, territory over which he legally doesn’t even have any authority.

I regard Chrystia Freeland as a disgrace.
