JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: AMERICA’S “LYING, CHEATING, AND STEALING” BRAGGART SECRETARY OF STATE, BIG FAT MIKE POMPEO, VISITS CANADA TO PRESSURE TRUDEAU TO JOIN AMERICA IN “SPEAKING WITH ONE VOICE ABOUT HONG KONG” – ESSENTIAL PERSPECTIVE ON EVENTS IN HONG KONG AND THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSE   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE ON CBC NEWS

 

“Trudeau and Pompeo urged to speak with one voice on China’s response to Hong Kong protests

“U.S. Secretary of State meets PM, Freeland today in Ottawa”

 

Oh crap.

One voice with Pompeo on anything is just asking too much. Remember that’s “lying, cheating, and stealing” braggart Pompeo, formerly of the CIA.

And this Hong Kong business has got entirely out of proportion. Really, nothing that big has happened. The marches are in fact much smaller than the press generally says, and the Chinese government response has not been excessive.

And we must remember, American State Department people have directly encouraged this to embarrass China. We even have a photo, easily found on the Internet, of a woman American Consular official consulting with a couple of march leaders, something that is totally inappropriate.

Shall we compare China’s response to demonstrations to that of Emmanuel Macron in France? The Yellow Jacket demonstrations have resulted in 11 people being killed and 2500 injured. Right in the heart of Paris, legendary symbolic city for human rights and revolution against oppression.

Or, even worse, how about the government of Israel at the Gaza protests? Those protests are not even located in Israel, but more than 200 people have been killed by Israeli army snipers, including women and children. Many thousands have been injured.

If Trudeau goes along with Pompeo, as he is likely being encouraged to do by Chrystia Freeland, friend of the current Washington establishment, well, his father once used a word in public that exactly would describe it, merde!
