well why u aint been say something????
whats going on EXACTLY in hk???
like what was the cause
and whats going on
Hov basically Bill Cosby with street cred nowadays
In 1997 Britain handed over HK back to China
Part of the handover was an agreement to keep 1 country 2 systems in place for 50 years (2047)
The Chief officer of HK (Carrie Lam) is a puppet for Beijing.
They tried to pass an extradition law which would allow bejing to come collect people they feel are breaking the law (promoting democracy)
The people of HK felt this infringes upon the 1 country 2 systems agreement
Police coordinated with gangsters (triads) to beat up protesters
1. Carrie Lam to step down
2.Independent investigation into the yuen long triad beatings
3. accountability for police brutality
4. Universal suffrage (democracy/independence)
5. Complete withdrawal of the extradition bill
So with all this going on it is suspected that the police force is being supplemented with chinese police and military
Hong kong police is going undercover and blending in with protesters
Protesters think police plants are inciting violence in order to call in riot police
At the airport mixed within the protesters they found an undercover chinese police with weapons in his bag (2 wood batons)
Someone who was taking pictures of faces at the airport was questioned
He was wearing a press vest but said he was a tourist. They searched his bag and found he was carrying a i love hk police shirt chinese id card and it was found put he worked for global times a chinese state sponsored propaganda paper
China is deploying military on the hk border
Youtube and Reddit are on fire with propaganda and misinformation
I’m lowkey worried I’m already being spied on
Internet doesn’t feel safe anymore
Kinda stressed out
The type to go to the shopping section on his page is copping 4 shirts.
I think China got agents scraping the Internet.
Posting propaganda and misinformation
I’ve been posting on Reddit in the hongkong subreddit
Reddit got a 300m investment from a chinese company (tencent) couple of months ago
Place I’m living currently has a huge mainland China population
Wouldn’t be surprised if some are spies/operatives
I realize i sound paranoid af
I think Hong Kong is on the verge of another Tiananmen Square
You think China is spying on people like you and me? I mean they probably are on the big fish and government but us small folks ain’t got nothing to worry about.
Hong Kong is what happens when Libs run things. Glad we're locking LIBS UP.
Anyone saying anything anti China or pro democracy.
They don’t need people to redflag people, just bots and ai
Dare you to say something slick about China on your Twitter and fly to Beijing
that's what scares me. not just China but many other countries can try to track your social media stuff. if they find they have a dissident or someone with a public voice now in their country, who knows what they will do.
khashoggi is an extreme example since he was a journalist but there's no reason why they wouldn't target someone with a large Twitter following, for example.
we can't live in fear but we should be aware of what's happening.
Word. It's not like the US that collects text messages, records phone calls and tracks cell locations indiscriminately
Not that I think the govt here does anything with that data, but, you know, conspiracy theories and all that.
By the same logic they shouldn’t be worried about youtube comments. But that **** is crawling with misinformation and propaganda
They’re weaponizing media/misinformation/propaganda
You don’t even need to be a public online figure. They can cross reference all your ****.
The United States got cambridge analytica, you don’t think China got some state sponsored **** they’re weaponizing?
Bruh you know how many times chinese companies have stolen intellectual property
You don’t think us never been under cyberattack by China? Russia?
just read Twitter replies these days. half of them are disinformation.
NT has been infiltrated by lib-bots as well. you just have to fight against it every day.
NYT has "demoted" Weisman for his behavior. Must be nice to get off with just a slap on the wrist.
Every darn day famb. Imagine the cesspool this place would be if Coal Gang wasn't doing our work. Imagine having to read page after page of Lib conjecture. We are winning. Rusty is changing his tune, Rex is coming back and we are voting JROSE5 as our Administrator. #COALGANG
There’s a longer version in that twitter thread. I’m literally just sad. Way past anger and frustration.
if they wanted you they would've had you already
Most of Africa agrees with Republicans on three things:
- hard work only pays off (survivors bias)
- kill the gays
- don't kill the fetuses
So you get a lot of "I'm not a fan of Trump but I agree with [insert policy]" especially from older immigrants, who grew up in the Africa of the 80s and 90s on a steady diet of IMF/World Bank sponsored neoliberal economic policies, authoritarian regimes, and woke churches ("Jesus saves and heals") or koranic schools. And when you hit them with this:
you get the "Trump did not say this, his official did" response, or the "just because he is hiring racists doesn't mean he is one" response.
