The stunning Hong Kong skyline represents a cautionary tale for the US.
Inflammatory hypocrisy is not a dish reserved as a tepid and unfulfilling appetizer existing to mollify the masses in creating a false equivalency which serves as a basis for hope and tranquility. While the social justice lobby continues to expend precious resources and energy on demolishing every facet of American culture and aspect of history that does not align with the fluidic ideals of the egregious mob, and allocates First Amendment rights in the tedious process, the citizens of Hong Kong now shackled by the indifferent and perpetual force of Chinese communism ponder with angst and frustration how certain individuals living under the free market system and culture of the US have come to hate this country.
In the wake of Beijing’s despicably repugnant campaign to abruptly terminate the 50 grace period of the “one country, two systems” policy which in theory protects the Capitalistic entity from ruinous guerilla attempts direct from the Communist party, the concept of justice, at least from the perspective of North America, and northern Europe, can no longer be applied to the island’s 7.4 million residents. The Chinese government officially released details of a Hong Kong National Security law activated and the bureaucratic verbiage states that the legislation was enacted to protect the special economic territory of internal and external threats. To those outside China’s bubble, the Chinese high court now has the power to overrule any legal decision or precedent set in Hong Kong, which translates to basic liberties of residents being screwed royally. As the proverbial rug of freedoms has been pulled from under the legs of the population, noticeably absent from the conversation is Colin Kaepernick, and his insufferable minions expanding “two minutes hate” into warfare facilitating prodigious societal reengineering efforts.
As the statues continue to fall from sea to shining sea, and anybody of white skin associated with Trump or celebrating the National Anthem is labeled as racist by the hysterical protestors through live and digital means, Hongkongers have effectively lost the right to free speech, as content interpreted as anti-China propaganda is now illegal and offenders are subject to moderate to severe repercussions. The silence from the left regarding the ideological human rights violations has been reprehensibly deafening.
While Kaepernick’s nonsensical rants and offensive socks depicting pigs in police uniforms defies completely the symbiotic relationship of law enforcement and the NFL providing adequate security and player safety from the potentially unsavory acts of raucous crowds and pathologically obsessive and unstable superfans, equally deplorable is the mainstream media and politician built vacuum of naivety in treating the Hong Kong nightmare with a sanctimonious shrug of the shoulders as life goes on.
Sadly, the progressive divisiveness in politicizing the entire culture, has been perfected and refined by the Chinese government and the Communist party for seven decades, as the citizenship has been exploited, bullied, mislead, surveilled, mislead, bullied, and exploited in a broken record of transgressions brainwashing the population into submission and erasing the ideals of liberty and love. Instead, the tattered remnants of a patriotic duty morphed into a pathological infatuation glorifying political deities has resulted in a culture of slaves beyond salvation in enthusiastically trading self-awareness for the rigors and instability of a hive mind mentality.
Vehement protests to facilitated indoctrination have swept through the former British colony, only to be untracked by Covid-19, as residents shared a powerful intuition of Beijing’s design on putting a legislative stranglehold on individual freedoms and orchestrating a systematic takeover of one of the world’s most powerful economies and trading institutions. What has been a rich historical tapestry of laissez-faire economics, now braces for the inevitable swarm of staunch Chinese sanctions and tiresome reforms.
Hong Kong residents coordinated momentous efforts to assemble against the onset of totalitarianism, and even deployed a series of smartphone apps, which tracked the location and movement of military and law enforcement forces accosting groups of citizens in alerting subscribers of areas to avoid or engage, with underlying circuitous logical loop of “who’s watching the watchers?” persisting in the background like a stubborn gray marbled bank of fog nestled above the world class harbor and fleets of junks bobbing in the calm waters. As the economic zone already has strict gun laws in place, the population has little recourse in resisting the acts of the Chinese government.
When Deng and the British first negotiated the passing of the baton with the year 1997 firmly imprinted unilaterally across the political perspective, many residents with histories spanning the generations felt abandoned and betrayed by the Thatcher regime. Years of economic victories and a rich cultural tapestry were suddenly threatened by the proximity of the mainland. Thus, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China was formed, as a ballast against tyranny and corruption. To soften the transformation into a hybrid government, legal system, and economy, an adjustment period was signed into agreement by both sides, and 2047 was supposed to the date where the “one country, two systems” arrangement could be reexamined, but the blatant posturing in Beijing’s incorrigible arrogance in recently shunning the agreement and effectively handcuffing residents changes the entire framework of the game. The chilling tale of deceit and blind display of wrath is a resounding example to the West that globalism is next step to pecuniary and societal evolution, a harsh lesson still manifested through the chaotic and horrific nightmare of the circumstances and motivation surrounding the proliferation of the Coronavirus.
As synergies dominate history, the disgraceful fate of regicide bestowed upon Czar Nicholas by the cold hearted actions of the Bolsheviks leading to the deaths of 50 million Russians, inspired Mao and colleagues to revolt in China. The rigors of the Cultural Revolution subsequently bloodied the hands of the Chinese Communist party, as another 50 million lives for a cause in the eyes of the ruling class party were sent to their ancestors. Today, American elitists afflicted by visions of grandeur and liberal guilt revere the triumphs of Lenin and Mao, and an ugly battle persists which hacks at the soft underbelly of North American society with a rusty pen knife and the customizable digital tools of the social networks. The template exists for militant coercion.
From affirmative action, to the decrepit public education system, to the political philosophies of Tesla-driving pseudo-intellectuals, dissidents to the independent republic are taking the infantile steps in creating a socialist dystopia, while ignoring the collective pleas and cries from a people who face a fate that rivals a region in hell. The vacuous disingenuousness is so delicious that the likeness of Kaepernick is being ceremoniously being erected next and MLK monument, as Lincoln and Washington are savagely torn down and melted into metal for a new currency system based on cryptocurrencies and carbon credits.
If the folks continue in struggle to process the irony of history, or fail to realize the consequences for their reckless actions, two generations forward the termite mound of society will have effectively eliminated the remaining Homo Sapiens and champions of humanity in swapping “I” for a “we” species and eternity. For Hongkongers, their tumultuous future was sealed when the Beijing signed the legislation, for Americans the new reality should be a stern warning of things likely to come if the current trajectory of the nation continues to swerve out of control far to the left.
