America’s rivals are exploiting the unrest following the death of George Floyd to mock the country while it deals with unprecedented social tension.
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge reported that “Beijing communist party officials are especially taking the US to task over its ‘hypocrisy’ regarding Hong Kong.”
The Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Director General Hua Chunying tweeted “I can’t breathe.”

The U.S. State Department has largely sided with Hong Kong protesters during the last year as activists have stood against Beijing’s growing control over the city.
U.S. officials have criticized Hong Kong police and the mainland government’s harsh response to these protests.
Durden continued noting how Chinese media exploited this unrest to dunk on the United States:
“The Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying further used a recent RT segment to castigate what she called “THUGS & HEROES HYPOCRISY” in all caps, also as a reference to how Washington immediately dubs ‘rioters’ in official enemy countries as “heroes” while condemning any similar protest action in its own midst. “
Iran joined the fray when Foreign Minister Javad Zarif tweeted “Some don’t think #BlackLivesMatter. To those of us who do: it is long overdue for the entire world to wage war against racism. Time for a #WorldAgainstRacism.”
Some don't think #BlackLivesMatter.
To those of us who do: it is long overdue for the entire world to wage war against racism.

A few days before Zarif made his tweets, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei declared on Twitter that “if you’re dark-skinned walking in the US, you can’t be sure you’ll be alive in the next few minutes.”
“A human, for his black skin, has no reassurance to live in society, if indeed, a police officer can beat him to death because of his colored skin,” Khamenei commented.

The country’s paramount leader posted a video depicting the history of slavery and previous race riots in major American cities.
Hong Kong has been a heated topic ever since President Trump decided to scrap all of America’s agreements with Hong Kong after it allegedly rescinded its special status to Beijing.
“China has replaced its promised formula of one country, two systems, with one country, one system,” Trump declared.
Indeed, foreign countries are now coming to notice a lot of the U.S.’s social flaws.
Major powers like China will likely exploit this in the future.
In dealing with an authoritarian country like China the U.S. must be smart. It should continue pursuing fairer trade deals, along with finding ways to decouple from the country.
Furthermore, it should greatly restrict migration from the East Asian country due to its track record of using its citizens to set up shop in the U.S. and engage in all forms of espionage and business theft.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
