The unrest in the US over George Floyds death in custody has been seized by China and renewed discourse on the end of the American era. But Hong Kongs defiant demonstration this week suggests Washingtons fall may not be Beijings gain.
The scenes unfolding on US streets this week, with federal and local law enforcement officers viciously cracking down on anti-racism protesters, have been particularly distressing for Hong Kongs pro-democracy activists.
The nightly unrest on the streets of several US cities, fueled by heavy-handed security responses, has drawn condemnations from across the world, including the European Union and the UNs human rights chief, Michelle Bachelet.
Its also raw meat for Beijings aggressive wolf warrior diplomats named after a Chinese blockbuster about a commando who kills American baddies with his bare hands. And it couldnt have come at a better time for the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Chinese diplomats have seized on the unrest in the US to hammer home CCP talking points of a violent, racist, imperialist power that has double standards and is structurally hypocritical.
The racial discrimination against minorities is a social ill in the United States. What happened again reflects there are serious problems that should be urgently addressed, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian told reporters in Beijing.
Zhao, a former Chinese ambassador to Pakistan, is widely regarded as the alpha male of the wolf warrior pack and has been retweeting a volley of taunts against the US, including a post by the editor of state-owned daily, Global Times, noting, I want to ask Speaker Pelosi and Secretary Pompeo: Should Beijing support protests in the US, like you glorified rioters in Hong Kong?

How much do you want to bet their $$ and influence is involved.
Who cares what that insectoid government has to say about anything?
So arson and looting had nothing to do with that?
Given that China is clearly at war with the U.S. (and freedom everywhere), it would be illogical to conclude that they ARE NOT funding internal strife of the Marxist/Maoist sort in the U.S.
They may be communists, but they are stupid. Quite the contrary.
George Soros and Bloomberg and other radicals.
And from the way we see certain people are reacting we know who our traitors are for the most part.
You wish, China. “Wolf Warrior?” You haven’t seen a wolf warrior until you’ve seen a p***ed off American patriot.
Yeah. They are like army ants.
Well, if China is going to exploit this thing, they better hurry because Dems tend to move on to the next shiny object very fast leaving the latest fad outrage far behind in the rear view mirror.
Tank Man was beaten to death a few minutes after he left the road by Chinese secret police - there used to be a video of he beating on youtube.
Just one of more than 10,000 murdered in the 48 hours of sustained armor piercing heavy weapons fire
Barr said their were forign actors involved; China has the most to gain by internal US disorder, also has the means, methods, and experience.
There has been a huge amount of brainwashing in the U.S. at the hands of the communist-backed media. A big chunk of the U.S. population is just virtue signaling by their comments, protesting, and kneeling. They don't realize they are serving the CCP.
Bring back manufacturing from China. Rebuild the rust belt.
Mattis knows better! A large number of the Corps holds him and Allen in contempt.
eventually the writer gets around to CCP’s oppressed:
Tiananmen anniversary commemorations were also banned this year, officially due to the Covid-19 crisis, but the territory of 7.5 million residents were braced for a mass show of defiance. On Friday evening, tens of thousands of Hong Kongers knocked down barriers around Victoria Park, the territorys landmark gathering point for demonstrations, to hold a candlelit vigil.
Chinas track record on racism, from Han Chinese domination to its treatment of ethnic and religious minorities such as Uighur Muslims and Tibetans, also comes up for scrutiny. When the foreign ministry retweeted the African Unions call on the US to intensify efforts to eliminate discrimination, with a message on China opposing all forms of racism, responses included, Dude, sit this one out, with hashtags ranging from banned religious group Falun Gong to Free Tibet.
Another response included, I didnt see this tweet when Africans were being discriminated against in Guangzhou, referring to the targeting of Africans in the southern Chinese city during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic earlier this year. Beijing has not apologised for the incidents and has described them as a series of “misunderstandings”
Given that Antifa is Maoist it should be no surprise
They have a long history of manipulating the race wars, sometimes gently, sometimes with great enthusiasm :
The Communist Party USA created Freedomways magazine as a propaganda vehicle with which to reach into the black intellectual and academic community. It was established in the mid-1960’s by members of the CPUSA and well-documented sympathizers/supporters. It billed itself as “A Quarterly Review of the Freedom Movement.”
Newly declassified documents from Operation SOLO, an FBI program to infiltrate the Communist Party USA, reveal that a journal called Freedomways, which was influential in the black community for decades, was subsidized by the Soviet and Chinese Communist Parties.
Freedomways has been called one of the most influential African-American literary and political journals of the 1960s and 1970s. It began in 1961 and ceased publication in 1986.
During the 25 years it served as a propaganda organ for the CPUSA and Soviet front organizations such as the World Peace Council, Freedomways published articles by such figures as:
Derrick Bell, one of Barack Obamas academic mentors and a Harvard professor;
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John Lewis, a Democratic member of Congress from Georgia
Jesse Jackson , a former aide to King and Democratic candidate for president.
