Things are heating up in Hong Kong.
The New York Times reports that activists are calling for a general strike and rallies on Monday, August 5, 2019.
Such unrest has led to massive disruptions on subway and rail lines. Additionally, more than 200 flights from the city’s airport have been cancelled.
These demonstrations are part of a larger wave of protests against an unpopular extradition bill that was introduced in recent months.
BLP covered these protests in June, which demanded that the extradition bill be killed, while also calling for the resignation of the city’s leader Carrie Lam.
These protestors have demanded more freedoms and have become increasingly suspicious of Hong Kong’s political elites, whom they believe are becoming gradually influenced by Beijing.
After much pressure, Lam pulled the extradition bill, but protests continue to rage on as the protestors want her to step down and they demand more freedoms.
There are rumors of a potential crackdown by Beijing should the protests escalate and the situation devolve into political chaos.
Conservative commentator Kurt Schlichter pointed out one very sobering detail about these protests:
“Note that HK citizens have no guns. Watch what happens to them. It’s coming. And I expect the Chinese will combine it with this trade war business to take the sanctions hit all at once.”

Then a poster followed up on Schlichter’s tweet thread with an image of a Hong Kong protestor holding a sign saying, “We need the 2nd Amendment.”

This demonstrates how lucky Americans are compared to other people around the world.
Although gun laws at the federal level still need work, Americans enjoy strong gun freedoms globally speaking.
In the Hong Kong case, this could be a matter of life or death, considering the Chinese government’s repressive nature.
The Tiananmen Square massacre of 1989 conjures up lurid imagery of the what the Chinese government is capable of doing to its citizens when it’s pressed against the wall.
Billionaire George Soros to Give Race Hustling Groups $220 Million to Wreak Havoc Across America
George Soros is ready to crank up racial tensions during the 2020 election cycle.
On July 13, 2020, the Open Society Foundations, a group founded by billionaire George Soros, revealed that it would donate $220 million during the next five years to organizations who allegedly support racial equality in America.
Of the total he plans on donating, $150 million will be sent to “Black-led justice organizations that helped to create and now sustain the momentum towards racial equality.” The remaining $70 million will be allocated towards supporting “ongoing efforts to fight voter suppression and disinformation and ensure safe and secure elections in the midst of the pandemic,” and “nurturing civic engagement among young people,” according to a statement the foundation published.
These donations could play a crucial role in the 2020 elections as both parties attempt to court minorities votes.
The New York Times described Soros’ efforts as “a huge financial undertaking that will support several Black-led racial justice groups for years to come.” According to Amir Tibon of Haaretz, “Soros has donated previously to causes of racial equality and criminal justice reform in the United States, but Monday’s announcement could make the Jewish billionaire the largest single donor to groups fighting for racial justice.”
“Black Voters Matter” is one project Soros’ organizations will be running, which aims to increase voter registration and participation among Africa Americans. Similarly, the “Circle for Justice Innovations”, a group taking the lead on criminal justice reform and mass incarceration will also be activated.
Alex Soros, the oligarch’s son and the deputy chair of Open Society, commented in a statement that “this is the time for urgent and bold action to address racial injustice in America.”
Nationalists across the globe have warned about Soros’ influence when it comes to mass migration and the promotion of degenerate lifestyles.
