This tweet and video is unintentional tragi-comedy.
CGTN asks, “Hong Kong, what happened to you?” Do they really not understand? I suggest that CGTN watch this SCMP video of the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s statement regarding the G7 statement on the situation in Hong Kong:
The statement by China is the usual blather about other countries not “harboring evil intentions” and not interfering in China’s blatant disregard for human rights – as if upholding and showing concern for human rights is somehow “evil.” But stop the SCMP video at 1:01. CGTN, do you see what is written on the wall there? “GIVE ME DEMOCRACY OR GIVE ME DEATH” The Hong Kong people know. They see China. They know China. They know the CCP. They know what happened at Tiananmen Square in 1989. They know that the Chinese Communist Party cares nothing about human rights. They know the Chinese Communist Party’s history of lying, propaganda, and deceit. They want nothing to do with it.
That is what happened to Hong Kong.
