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.

Published

on

Antony Ferrill, the man accused of killing five co-workers and himself at a Molson Coors plant, reportedly had a long-running dispute with the co-worker .

The New York Post reported that Ferrill had frequently gotten into arguments with one of the victims he killed, a fellow electrician, according to an account that an employee related to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The two co-workers had been accusing each other of going into each other’s’ offices and messing with computer equipment or swiping tools, according to a source, who did not want to be named.

The source also noted that Ferrill frequently watched movies on his phone throughout the day, which other co-workers complained about, and Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black.

Earlier in the day, Ferrill had been fired but ended up returning to the business facility with a stolen name tag and his firearm, according to WBBM-TV.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician for over 20 years. 17 of those years were spent at the Milwaukee brewery, according to a report from the Sentinel, which pointed to various sources and online employment records.

The tradesman turned murderer started to become paranoid at work, reportedly telling co-workers about a year ago that he suspected his bosses were breaking into his house, hacking his computer. and rearranging his furniture.

“I was, ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’” the unnamed employee informed the Sentinel. “We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. But he was dead serious about it.”

According to Phillip Rauch Sr., who worked with Ferrill for 15 years at the brewery, he was “a very good electrician.”

“Every time I worked with him, he was always in a good mood,” Rauch told the Sentinel.

Interestingly, the media did not focus much on the story.

Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars noted this on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Wow, this disappeared from the discussion quickly.”

Simply put, when a non-White commits an atrocity, the media will do everything it can to downplay it.

However, when a white person carries out a shooting, there will be non-stop coverage about growing white supremacy or other bugaboos the media is willing to conjure up.
