Hong Kong Rioters Wage Sabotage Campaign To Press Congress into Punishing China

https://t.co/5IK4aoqtyA

"...To claim that the US is not involved in the events in Hong Kong is nonsense. It is obviously not by chance that the US sponsored HK rabble rouser Joshua Wong gets published in the NYT with a call for the US Congress to act against China. The Trump administration strategy towards the new super-villain China is a general decoupling between the 'West' and China. The violent protests in HK are obviously one instrument it applies to achieve that. The Trump administration and the rioters hope that the Chinese military intervenes and creates another Tianamen situation. Beijing is not going to fall for the same trick twice..."

NDPP is right. Beware the imperialist corporate media, they will never side with communism, no matter how just it is!

@misfit

Good point. But there’s no big crackdown on the violence that we see in salted protests of the west. 

As far as I’m aware, it’s actually the opposite.

It was a sardonic reference to Richard Nixon's use of the same term.

https://tinyurl.com/y3v2dxmu

Nixon used it to mean that middle-class people who seemed uninvolved actually agreed with him and were against left-wing protestors. That sort of general sentiment is often accompanied by rhetoric along the lines of "These punk kids are only rioting because they're out of school and have nothing better to do", also seen in the citation from NDPP's Hong Kong friend.

My point was that pro-government and anti-protest statements out of China often seem oddly similar to right-wing commentary in the west. Same with people who defend Beijing's treatment of Muslim minorities, "You can't expect the Chinese to just lie down and tolerate jihad from religious terrorists!!"

Hong Kong Concedes, Withdrawing Extradition Bill

"Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam has announced her government was formally withdrawing the controversial bill originally behind the last few weeks of violent unrest in the city.

Western 'Progressives' Support Yet Another Color Revolution in Hong Kong

https://dissidentvoice.org/2019/09/western-progressives-support-yet-anot...

You know it's not a real color revolution until the stupid section of the western 'progressive' blogosphere gets to cheerleading...This is a geostrategic, geopolitical information warfare. No longer - if ever - grassroots popular agitation. Progressives - if you actually are that - you need to keep your eyes open, your minds alert and think sharply, critically, objectively as you wade into this battlespace. Lives and nations rest in the balance."

Dominic Barton

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominic_Barton

"Dominic Barton (born 1962) is a Uganda-born Canadian management consultant* and business executive. He was the Managing Director of McKinsey and Company from 2009 to 2018. He is the Canadian Ambassador to China since September 5, 2019."

* 'McKinsey and Company is an American worldwide management consulting firm'  - Wikipedia-

 His 'American worldwide management consulting' experience makes him an ideal Canadian ambassador. Davos guy too. Perfect.

swallow swallow's picture

Interesting choice.

Freeland said Barton's close personal connections to Trudeau and herself means he will have "close and direct contacts" that will help him do the job.

She said his appointment sends "an important message to China" about how much Canada values its relationship with China.

Conservative foreign affairs critic Erin O'Toole released a statement today criticizing the appointment, saying the situation with China calls for an experienced diplomat in the role of ambassador, not a "corporate executive advocating for doing business with China as usual."

"He is replacing one Liberal insider with another Liberal insider at a time that we should have a professional diplomat who is conversant with the language, culture and protocols needed to secure the swift release of Canadian citizens and stabilization of export trade," he said.

https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/china-ambassador-dominic-barton-1.5269770

Here's a first, I agree with Erin O'Toole. 

NDPP

As for Freeland's assesment that the appointment 'sends an important message to China about how much Canada values its relationship with China' that's certainly true. Just not in the way she intends it be taken. The foreign minister's political 'wet-work' for the empire on Meng Wanzhou, trashing trade and joining the Trump/Bolton/Pompeo anti-China offensive speaks far more clearly.

McKinsey and Company practically had a monopoloy on all World Bank and USAID contracts going back in the 1990s-2000s. Haven't kept track of them in over 15 years. Sounds just like the type of crowd Freeland would run with. I swear she is an ideological clone of Ignatieff and seems to share the same circle of friends.

 

NDPP

Interesting. Didn't know about McKinsey/USAID etc. That could have been around the same time that Larry Summers was at the World Bank, where he famously commented in a leaked memo on the 'impeccable economic logic' of exporting toxic waste to 'the third world' Summers is also famous as the man who broke Glass Steagal for Bill Clinton ushering in the present day bankster apocalypse of unregulated speculation. Most recently his name came up in the Epstein matters too. He is effusively referred to by Chrystia Freeland as 'my economic guru'. She in turn introduced him to Justin who has apparently now also fallen under the spell of this high priced hustler.

Could be NDPP. All I know is that there was a cadre of go to firms (management, engineering) that got most of the international development contracts.

OK. Well it certainly fits with the package.

Maybe its the Hong Kong people who are behind the Hong Kong protests but if anyone wants to support their cry for freedom and peace, more power to them.

Yes they will get the same kind of freedom and peace as the Ukrainians have after their colour revolution. The Egyptians are also into a blissful period of freedom. The Libyans have never had it so good. So far it is clear that US led colour revolutions are the best thing to happen to the oligarchs of those countries, not so much your average Joe.

Absolutely. NED and OSF (George Soros) certainly look good on paper but they are based on a profound hatred for communism and socialism. Free speech and independent media are often their biggest rallying call - or entry into campaigns - to disrupt what are deemed as authoritarian regimes by western capitalists.

These protestors are demanding they be treated like Puerto Rico or American Samoa. I am sure Trump will respect them in the same manner that he respected Puerto Rico when it needed the federal governments support.

Hong Kong: Make Colonialism Great Again

"It is a thoroughly reactionary development when demonstrators carrying US flags march through a city asking the most hated imperialist figure, Donald Trump, to come to their aid. But that is what is happening in Hong Kong. Washington and the mainstream media are going all out to foment a full-scale pro-imperialist rebellion, basically demanding independence for Hong Kong.

Pro-Hong Kong Rally in DC Against 'CHINAZI Regime' Being Sponsored With US Govt-Linked Money

https://on.rt.com/a1ku

"A planned Washington DC protest in support of Hong Kong activists and promoting the 'Chinazi' flag is being sponsored by at least six organizations backed by the notoriously shady US funded National Endowment For Democracy (NED). Posters for the event circulated online contain an image of the so-called 'Chinazi' flag - an altered version of the Chinese national flag with the yellow stars arranged to form a swastika and with a hammer and sickle placed in the corner.

Protesters plan to form a human chain encircling the Chinese embassy in Washington DC to protest the 'Chinazi regime' and call for an independent Hong Kong. The links between US officials, anti-China activists and US government funded organizations is reminiscent of countless US regime-change or 'color revolution' efforts seen around the world, from Ukraine to Syria, Libya and Venezuela."

 

Huawei Ready To Sell Its 5G Technology Code and Washington is Getting More Concerned

"The Chinese telecom giant said it's prepared to sell the core code of its 5G technology to any prospective Western buyer. US has classified Huawei as a 'threat to national security' accusing it of spying for Beijing..."

The accusation was always a US bluff without any proof or foundation and was based on an economic power-play/competition. Now that the bluff has been called, and any prospective security threat easily countered, watch the US instigated demonization, smear and disinformation campaign continue regardless.
