By imposing its #securitylaw, #China ripped up the #JointDeclaration on #HongKong, disrespected the city's status as an #SAR and essentially killed off the Troian Horse known as #onestatetwosystems as a consequence.
Now China blames #GreatBritain of breaching the contract it has signed because it has offered political #asylum to citizens of Hong Kong unwilling to continue their lives behind the Great Firewall in a totalitarian one-party state.
My take: FUCK CHINA's CCP.
Not only are the rulers of #Serbia brown-nosing #China's #CCP. They insisted on holding #elections that were boycotted by all opposition parties and *won* by the party of president #Vucic. And guess what? As soon as the elections were done, the #Covid19 numbers in Serbia are rising rapidly and there is rumors of forged numbers to keep those elections from being cancelled. Securing power over protecting #health: the people of Serbia are getting fucked over by their rulers.
Der journalistische Grenzgänger, Zündler und Pöbler #MarkusSomm (als Sohn eines BBC-Bosses zum Trotzkist mutiert, heute ein libertärer Kotzbrocken) muss mal wieder dümmlich provozieren zum Thema #Klimawandel - und setzt den Titel «#Velo|fahren bringt dem #Klima nichts» über seine Kolumne. Von der #Autoindustrie und #Konzerne|n gekaufte #Journalisten ohne #Ethik oder #Rueckgrat bringen noch viel weniger https://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/velofahren-bringt-dem-klima-nichts-589867254471.
Imagine you're one of the very few #muslim MPs in #NSW, and you know no better but to lobby heavily for the #CCP and #XiJinping - the very same people that put more than one million muslims in #internmentcamps in #Xinjiang.
#ShaoquettMoselmane looks like one of those self-regarding and greedy bastards who happily sell their soul for some money. #Beijing heavily banks on fools like him to expand its influence, push its narrative and yes: to spy.
Frankly the week that ends with #Juneteenth has not been all that bad. The #SupremeCourt has stopped #Trump's attack in #DACA, and another pig's book makes the pig in the oval office look even more rotten. Meanwhile, the account of the leader of the most powerful state on this planet on the birdie network is sinking to new #racist lows every day. A tone deaf sociopath and pathological liar who plays to his deplorable hardcore fans. No more! #resist
Wow, just wow: How low can this administration go? Has #StephenMiller hijacked the birdie account of the orange imbecile in chief? That doctored «terrified toddler runs from #racist baby» video is just one of many examples in terms of #dogwhistling the extreme right and racists.
I've always considered this presidency as #whiteprivileges' last stand. Things could get very ugly if this is the new tone of this administration in #socialmedia. Divisive falsehoods all over the place. #UnitedStates
Two shots in the back? Seriously, #cops in the #UnitedStates seem not to be able to change their mad ways. Even in a highly volatile situation with public unrest caused by police #brutality against people of colour, they keep murdering them. Keep up those #BLM protests, in #Atlanta, in #LosAngeles, in #Seattle, in #NewYork. Worldwide. There is no safe space for #racism, #resist with all you have! #RayshardBrooks
Yesterday, I engaged in a culinary kind of #chickengame: Went out to the riverside at 3pm, pushed over a dead tree and started a fire at 5:30pm on a tiny part of the fire place. Started the #BBQ at 6:15pm, started eating at 6:45pm - and all the while, massive thunderstorms were building up and moving in. But apart from a few drops the rain only started after 8pm when I safely back in the city centre and could take shelter in the pub. All done right, then.
Great image from yesterday in #London: A #BLM activist carries away some rightwing extremist scum. Those knuckle-draggers had come to London to protect statues of slave owners, slave traders and actors of imperial crimes but ended up attacking the #Police and pissing on a memorial plate for a cop killed in a terror attack instead. Truly Britains finest being carried away. #racismbeatit
It really took longer than expected for #Covid19 to reemerge in #Beijing - officially, you know.
Since the #CCP has declared its victory in the people's war with Chinese characteristics under its wise leader #XiJinping, any new outbreaks make the regime look bad. No surprise that the cases discovered at the #Xinfadi market are blamed on "imported salmon". Because all bad things and new cases of the #Wuhan-type novel #Coronavirus come from abroad to threaten #China. The #xenophobia is strong.
I read that 500 elderly sore losers and #KMT supporters protested the #recall vote against #Kaohsiung's mayor #HanKuoyu and called for revenge recalls on #Taipei's Ketagalan boulevard. Let's just say that venue has seen some bigger crowds in the past calling for more noble causes than vindictiveness and support for a populist loudmouth that would not follow up on his great promises. And oh joy: «White wolf» and triad gangster #ChangAnlee also attended the protest. #Taiwan
Ich finde es großartig, wie der dümmlich-nassforsche #MartinSellner von den #Idiotaere|n auf #Socialmedia von der Manner AG in den Senkel gestellt wird: Geh woanders absellnern, Du lachhafter Hetzer. Oder vergrab mal wieder ein Smartphone in einem Blumentopf, wenn Dir danach ist.
Or as #GilScottHeron sang in the early 70ies:
«You can't depend on a train from Washington, it's one hundred years overdue.»
That's pretty much an overwhelming feeling for many. Too much of the same crap for way too long. #BLM
Not happy having delayed and botched the response of the #UnitedStates to #Covid19, #Trump now wants to resume his campaign rallies.
The daily number of new infections still is hovering solidly above the 20'000, the number of infected people in the US has exceeded 1.84 millions, the number of casualties stands at over 112'000.
This president is not only deeply #divisive. He's letting his people down in a #pandemic and wants the army to fight one part.
Nice one from #ADVChina, a YouTube channel from some chaps who have lived in China for a long time before leaving.

Ancestor worship gone weird, but interesting to see. There's also scantily clad pole dancers at some funerals over there. https://youtu.be/Xon8Ojn4C68
