Agree and interesting this is happening at the anniversary time of Tiananmen Square.

Of course the communists are the source of the concept of "Political correctness," and just like Democrat left here in this country, they will accept no dissent, unless it is just so overwhelming that they cannot stop it.

Of course here in this country, we increasingly see people who voice protests and contradictory thinking censored off of large social media websites, physically attacked on university campuses, in restaurants and elsewhere. This kind of behavior is just straight up evil, as are the people who perpetrate it.

Is this what we really want our society to be like here in this country? I certainly do not. And I hope you do not either.

It just shocks me that so many democrats can’t see the disturbing direction their party is moving in.
They cover it up with COOL memes and “woke” narratives and messaging.....

Sadly, they almost are.
They control our education system from top to bottom.
They control most of the media, the entertainment industry, all the main social media, recently our sports, and most of our culture.
That’s how they’ve indoctrinated the youth to believe all the crap that they do.....

Still, a lot of them will snap out of it when reality kicks in.

Oh they grasp it all right--but they are in cahoots with the gangs. The Demunist Commiecrats want us disarmed and at the mercy of their pet criminal gangs.

I find it interesting that the Chinese protesters are young, Christian, capitalists. They have seen how socialism and communism doesn't work. It will be another Tienanmen Square situation. Our Loony Left, atheist soyboys haven't a clue and they don't have the courage the Chinese have.

Hong Kong has a very different history, and was a British trading post until 1997.

Under British rule, Hong Kong expanded economically and was allowed to run it's own affairs, whilst the police were well respected and based on the British model of policing.

It's quite sad to see the Chinese imposing draconian laws and rules, and the protestors even unveiled the former British flag of Hong Kong in the parliament.

Its too bad the OP insists on turning interesting news story into partisan BS.

Hong Kong was a British colony until 1997, when they returned it back to China. Until recently China allowed Hong Kong pretty much govern themselves, but it seems they are now trying to enforce an extradition bill, which would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial.

The protesters are destroying property, much like the antifa sometimes does, and curiously the right wingers in US celebrate it in Hong Kong, while condemning it in US.

Just clicked on several news articles about them and apparently actual information is no longer allowed in news articles. Thanks.
It is about an extradition bill, which would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial
