ZeroHedge reports that citizens of Hong Kong have been out in the streets protesting an extradition bill put forward by City Executive Carrie Lam.
This bill, the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019, which was introduced on February 2019, would have made it easier to transfer fugitives to Mainland China and subject them to Chinese law.
Many of the demonstrators worried about the increased risk of Hong Kong citizens and foreign nationals passing through the city being shipped off to mainland China, where they would stand trial in Chinese courts.
Some analysts such as Agnes Chow argued that if this bill were to pass, Hong Kong “will be over.”
Lam actually yielded to the pressure and has suspended the extradition bill indefinitely. However, there is reason to believe that this bill will be making a comeback in the near feature. There is tremendous pressure from China to ram this bill through, which could put Hong Kong independence in jeopardy.
Despite Lam’s concession on Saturday, June 15, 2019, protestors continued to come out in force. On Sunday, 2 million people marched in protest demanding that Lam resign for introducing such a bill.
Since Hong Kong’s sovereignty was handed over to China in 1997, it has maintained considerable autonomy in economic and political affairs. In fact, it is ranked as the world’s freest economy according to the Heritage Foundation’s 2019 Index of Economic freedom.
However, the Beijing regime has always had plans of fully incorporating Hong Kong into its political system and turning into an appendage of the Chinese state.
Under Xi Jinping’s regime, China has undergone a politician transformation featuring some of the most advanced censorship schemes in human history. In efforts to consolidate his rule, Xi is cracking down on dissent and trying to put autonomous regions like Hong Kong under his thumb.
Should China succeed, Hong Kong could lose its vaunted status as one of the freest regions in the globe.
Unhinged Antifa Mob Attacks Anti-Pedophilia Protesters in Ireland
On July 11, 2020, a group of deranged Antifa activists attacked an anti-pedophilia demonstration in Dublin, Ireland.
The “March or Innocence” rally was held outside the Leinster House, Ireland’s parliament, protesting a bill that would allow 16-year-old children and younger to “change their gender.”
Conservative commentator Paul Joseph Watson tweeted, “Imagine protesting against an anti-pedophilia event.”

The protesters were also demanding that the Minister of Children Roderic O’Gorman resign for taking a picture with LGBT activist Peter Tatchell at a Gay Pride march in 2018.
O’Gorman asserted that he was not aware of Tatchell’s views on children and sex when the photo was taken.
“I met Peter Tatchell once and took a photo. That was the only time I have met him. I know of him as someone who stood up for LGBT people in countries where their rights were threatened,” he said.
“I was surprised to read some of the quotes from the 90s, which I had not read before. Any of those views would be completely abhorrent to ne, I’m glad to see he’s clarified and explained that what is being alleged isn’t his view.
Although the incident did not escalate, this goes to show the lengths politically correct mobs will go to move their social agenda forward.
Many traditionalists have proven to be prescient when it came to their fears that the legalization of gay marriage would lead to explicit pro-pedophilia advocacy.
The Right around the world will need to be on guard for this next front is the war to subvert traditional values.
