Hong Kong Pro-Democracy Protest Leaders Throw in the Towel Following Chinese Takeover

The going got tough, so they bolted.

The leaders of Hong Kong freedom protests that brought out millions into the streets throughout 2019 and early 2020 are quitting on the cause following a new law that will allow China to punish protesters harshly.

Joshua Wong, secretary-general of resistance group Demosisto, announced that he would be quitting the organization and effectively waving the white flag on the crusade for independence.

“It [the law] marks the end of Hong Kong that the world knew before,” Wong said. “From now on, Hong Kong enters a new era of reign of terror, just like Taiwan’s White Terror, with arbitrary prosecutions, black jails, secret trials, forced confessions, media clampdowns and political censorship.”

“With sweeping powers and ill-defined law, the city will turn into a secret police state. Hong Kong protesters now face high possibilities of being extradited to China’s courts for trials and life sentences,” he added.

Nathan Law, the founding chairman of Demosisto, also announced that he was quitting the group although he said that he plans to fight for democracy “in a personal capacity,” whatever that means.

The Hong Kong National Front also announced it would be disbanding. Although they remain active in other countries and insist that “today is not the end point,” they will not be active in Hong Kong any longer and their spokesman, Baggio Leung, who was formerly a parliamentary member in 2016, is leaving the group.

Amnesty International confirmed that the freedom revolution in Hong Kong was a failure, and China has an iron grip over the city now.

“From now on, China will have the power to impose its own laws on any criminal suspect it chooses,” said the head of Amnesty’s China team, Joshua Rosenzweig.

“The fact that the Chinese authorities have now passed this law without the people of Hong Kong being able to see it tells you a lot about their intentions. Their aim is to govern Hong Kong through fear from this point forward,” he added.

President Trump announced last month that Hong Kong would be losing their special treatment in trade policy considerations because of their pathetic surrender to the red menace:

President Donald Trump announced today that he will be “terminating” the relationship between the disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. as well as cutting off special trade advantages given to Hong Kong after China seized control of the formerly semi-autonomous city…

Trump is also putting the squeeze on Hong Kong following China’s announcement that they will be taking additional power over the city that has rebelled against the red menace throughout the past year.

“I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment,” Trump said at the same press conference.

“My announcement today will affect the full range of agreements that we have with Hong Kong, from our extradition treaty, to our export controls and technologies,” Trump added. “We will take action to revoke Hong Kong’s preferential treatment as a separate customs and travel territory from the rest of China.”

“No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China, given facts on the ground,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement after delivering a report to Congress indicating that Hong Kong has been usurped by China.

The president also said he will instruct his “presidential working group on financial markets to study the different practices of Chinese companies listed on the U.S. financial markets, with a goal of protecting American investors.”

“Investment firms should not be subjecting their clients to the hidden and undue risks associated with financing Chinese companies that do not play by the same rules,” Trump said, adding that “Americans are entitled to fairness and transparency.”

America will have to show more resolve than Hong Kong in order to repel China’s evil influence and remain the world’s top super-power.

Polish Election: National Conservative President Andrzej Duda Leads, Will Face Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger in Runoff

Poland’s President won the first round of the runoff.

Published

on

Poland’s national conservative President, Andrzej Duda, will face liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski in a runoff election in July. Duda, of the Law and Justice Party, recieved a strong electoral plurality in the first round of elections, taking just under 44%. Trzaskowski recieved 30%, and will be the sole candidate competing against Duda in the runoff elections.

Trzaskowski favors further integrating Poland with the European Union, and has pitched his candidacy to global liberal western elites irritated by euroskeptic and nationalist sentiment in Poland. He’s attended the globalist Bilderberg Conference, and received a scholarship from the Soros Foundation in the early 90’s as a student.

Trzaskowski also led the movement within the country to resettle thousands of Middle Eastern refugees in Poland during the 2015 migrant crisis, a policy that was overturned after Duda took office that year.

Duda has campaigned on reforming the nation’s judiciary, resisting political imperatives from unelected European Union bureaucrats in Brussels(without calling for the Eastern European nation to leave the EU), and opposition to attempts to promote a western-style cultural agenda in Poland. Duda has spoken against the promotion of homosexual ideology in the country, comparing the previous generation’s experiences living under communism to the liberal agenda. “They didn’t fight for this so that a new ideology would appear that is even more destructive,” said Duda in a campaign rally earlier this month.

Various other political parties competed in the first round elections, including other right-wing and conservative parties, who marshaled approximately 9% of the vote combined. If Duda can unite voters inclined to vote for parties to the right of Law and Justice, he stands a strong chance to cruise to an easy victory with more than 50% of the vote.
