Report: Chinese Troops Moves Into Hong Kong. Police Employ Lethal Force Against Protestors For Freedom

Elder Patriot –  This has been brewing for a while.

It appears that Hong Kong’s days of freedom to coming to an end.  Once the capitalist engine of Asia, Mainland (Communist) China’s growing influence over the city is threatening the population’s freedoms.

Protests originally began after Carrie Lam, the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, agreed to an extradition agreement with the ChiComs.  As the population became more aware as to what was at stake, the protests continued growing larger. 

Reports on the ground suggest that Chinese thugs were sent in to instigate violence in order to justify intervention by the Chinese military.

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Hong Kong police fired tear gas at demonstrators in the working class district of Sham Shui Po on Sunday, as yet another day of protest marches turned into a confrontation between police and activists. 

Ten straight weekends of increasingly violent protests have plunged Hong Kong into its most serious political crisis in decades, posing a challenge to the central government in Beijing.

HK Leader Lam’s popularity has cratered among the freedom-loving, deeply committed capitalist people of the city she runs, but she has steadfastly refused to relinquish control.


It appears from videos taken in the city that China has seized upon the violence to justify deploying its military to bolster the Hong Kong police.

It’s been thirty years since Chinese tanks rolled into Tiananmen Square in Beijing to squash those pro-democracy protests that had been ongoing for weeks. 

The Tiananmen Square massacre left an unknown number dead, with some estimates in the thousands, and smothered a democratic movement.

This may well be disastrous for the good people of Hong Kong but there’s no way this ends well for the ChiComs, either.

As companies face the already difficult decision of moving their manufacturing facilities out of China due to U.S. tariffs, the corporate executives charged with that decision are seeing first-hand the authoritarian nature of the communist government.

These events can only make the decision to abandon China easier.

Tonight, when you hit your knees, say a prayer for the people of Hong Kong.
