Man, even the voters in #India's #WestBengal seem to have been flushed with «fake news» from the West and to have been tricked into believing that #India is actually in the middle of a severe #pandemic #crisis.
Yes, the pandemic crisis could be real and the electoral defeat a consequence of mismanagement. But only if you actually believe the alarming reports from India reg. #Covid19...
How could that be?
Could it be those >1500 mid-range missiles constantly aimed by China at Taiwan?
Could it be the constant violations of Taiwan's AIDZ by the #PLA?
Could it be #Beijing's threatening rhetorics?
Could it be the annexation of #HongKong and the ensuing cancellation of #civicrights and #freedoms in that territory?
Could it be the clampdown on #dissent in China? #FarEast
Meanwhile in #Europe some self-declared "sceptics" call out these reports from India as «fake news», claiming that the numbers and reports of lacking capacities to burn corpses are "all made up".
It truly boggles my mind how folks can ignore all information that does not fit into their opinion. Saddening, really.
Toxische #Misogynie ist eine echte Herausforderung für moderne Gesellschaften.
Anscheinend (noch nicht gesichert, weil's die Krone behauptet) hat derselbe missratene, dummdreiste #Bierwirt aus #Wien, der die #Gruene-Politikerin #SigridMaurer zuerst in FB-Kommentaren aufs übelste angemacht und dann wegen übler Nachrede erfolglos verklagt hatte (der willige Willi lässt grüssen), nun seine Lebenspartnerin erschossen. Wohl im Vollsuff.
Hypermaskuline Gefährder, anyone?
Here's an example on how #Beijing tries to silence #media (#RTHK in this case) and a #journalist who simply used a publicly accessible data base of number plates to uncover who was behind sending white-dressed #Triads thugs to beat up pro-#democracy protestors at #YuenLong MRT station.
While #BaoChoy was not sentenced to a jail term, the hefty fine certainly serves as an intimidating warning to investigative journalism in all of #HongKong.
#mediafreedom #resist #FarEast
In the annual #mediafreedom rankings of Reporters without borders (#RFS), #HongKong has dropped from 18th back in 2002 to 80th in 2020. What happened to media freedom, some may ask? Well, frankly #Beijing, the #CCP and their #Orwell'ian pile of steaming crap known as the #NationalSecurityLaw happened. Welcome to *freedoms* with Chinese characteristics - you have the freedom to shut up and obey. #resist #civicrights #FarEast
Yes: the constant #threat that #Beijing and the #CCP pose for #freedom, #civicrights and #democracy in #Taiwan should not be discounted or belittled. But no: there is no reason to think an attack by #China on Taiwan is imminent.
People in Taiwan have become used to this constant threat over the years, as China has 1500 mid-range missiles aimed at Taiwan constantly and insists on violating its airspaces on an almost daily basis.
A common effort is needed to put Beijing in its place. #FarEast
In the latest news from #Uhmerica, a former economical adviser of the #formerguy going by the name of #LarryKudlow claims that #Biden's #NewGreenDeal will lead to Americans being forced to drink - wait for it - plant-based beer.
The sheer horror. No freedom-loving and self-respecting patriot will ever drink plant-based beer. What do those sick libtards think they're doing?
Yes: The KMT pooped its pants back in 2014 and installed those cameras based on fear of Taiwan's populace.
Sadly, the KMT still acts like an occupational force and a parasite. And it still tries to sell the debunked #1countryt2systems model to Taiwanese, despite #HongKong having been fucked over by #China in #public.
First of all, this is only an update of existing equipment that had been installed back in 2014 - yes, under KMT rule.
Secondly, Taiwan ended being a police state under KMT rule in about 1987.
So better shut the fuck up, Alex Fai and go get educated on the era of #whiteterror.
KMT = kill many Taiwanese.
Und wer den Zynismus von verwöhnten #MimimiMimen inmitten einer noch nicht ausgestandenen #Pandemie nicht unterstützenswert findet, hat sich nicht vorwerfen zu lassen, diese Zyniker zum Schweigen bringen zu wollen. Das ist einfach nur hochgradig demagogische Kackscheiße.
Was ohne jegliche Maßnahmen paßieren kann, sieht man in Brasilien. Danke auch!
Der TITANIC-Kommentar zu #allesdichtmachen - http://www.titanic-magazin.de/news/der-titanic-kommentar-zu-allesdichtmachen-12003/
Echt jetzt? Was ist von #allesdichtmachen zu halten?
Mich widert diese wehleidige Mischung aus «wie uns geschehen, so soll es auch allen andern ergehen» und den Narrativen von #Panikmache, gleichgeschalteten #Medien und übertriebenen Maßnahmen übelst an.
Wenn der Tod schon zum Leben gehören und akzeptiert werden soll, warum mutet Ihr den primär anderen zu?
As the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership #RCEP goes to show, #freetrade with Chinese characteristics may well include #expansionism against clear #UNCLOS rulings and yes: petty #tradewars if a country does not act as #China wants.
#Australia|n coal, wine and lobster, anyone?
If #GOP members in #Congress refuse to set up a bipartisan committee to investigate the attack on the #legislative on January 6th without investigations into #BLM protests, these representatives
- actively engage in a crass kind of #whataboutism
- completely ignore that an attack on the legislative as a branch of government cannot be compared to protests in random cities.
The #GOP is in full denial mode regarding this act of #insurrection and #infamy.
Freedom for #JimmyLai.
Freedom for #BaoChoy.
Freedom for the people of #HongKong.
Down with the #CCP, down with #Beijing's #oppression of #civicrights and attacks on #mediafreedom.
Time to make #China pay for ignoring and violating treaties it has signed but not honored.
