MUST WATCH: NBA Security Confiscates Pro-Hong Kong Signs, Ejects Fans As National Anthem Plays In the Background

Published

on

The NBA’s decision to side with China after Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted an image “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong” last Friday has caused a national stir.

The tweet was deleted after the communist regime demanded a retraction. Various Chinese businesses withdrew from partnerships with the team as well.

Rockets player James Harden and teammate Russell Westbrook apologized for Morey’s statement saying “We apologize. We love China.”

The NBA then released the following statement:

We recognize that the views expressed by Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey have deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China, which is regrettable. While Daryl has made it clear that his tweet does not represent the Rockets or the NBA, the values of the league support individuals’ educating themselves and sharing their views on matters important to them. We have great respect for the history and culture of China and hope that sports and the NBA can be used as a unifying force to bridge cultural divides and bring people together.

Everyday Americans have not been so apologetic to the Communist regime, however.

At a pre-season game between the Washington Wizards and the Guangzhou Long Lions, several attendees protested in favor of Hong Kong demonstrators.

One individual, Jon Schweppe had his “Free Hong Kong” sign confiscated during the basketball game. 

Another individual, Patrick Hedger, a research fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, held up a sign in protest during the national anthem before the game started. 

He screamed  “Free Hong Kong!” and followed up by yelling “We will not bow down to Communist oppression!” as the national anthem played. 

This NBA incident could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for many Americans in waking up to the rising threat of China.

Fresh off of celebrating its 70th anniversary, the Chinese regime is trying to whitewash its track record of democide and oppression. Although it made some market reforms in the 1980s, the country still remains politically repressive and engages in trade practices that harm American interests.

Corporations bowing down to Chinese censorship show how much power the Chinese Communist Party has these days. D.C. policymakers must work to contain China’s growing influence by re-negotiating trade agreements and putting more pressure on the communist country to comply with international law.

Will Italy Exit the EU Because of its Lackluster Response to the Wuhan Flu?

Published

on

Affar Italiani reports that leader of the Italian political party League and former Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini recently announced a possible withdrawal of Italy from the European Union due to its sluggish response to the Wuhan Virus.

“This is crazy. Europe needs another fifteen days to decide what to do, whether to help, whom and how. In the midst of an emergency when people die, now from pneumonia, tomorrow, possibly from poverty,”  the politician stated

Salvini cited Italy’s confrontation with the EU over aid to fight against the Wuhan virus and the refusal of Germany and other Northern European countries to help Italy as reasons for the southern European country leaving the EU and the eurozone.

“This is a den of snakes and jackals. First we defeat the virus, then remember Europe. And, if necessary, we say goodbye. Without even thanking,” the former Minister of Internal Affairs asserted.

The EU used to serve a purpose as a common market for European members states and a cohesive political unit the prevented fratricidal wars between European states.

It could also serve as a civilizational defense bloc against the potential hordes of African and Islamic migrants that will continue coming into the region thanks to its lax border policies and the demographic realities in these regions — booming populations which many of these Third World countries cannot accommodate.

Salvini has every reason to be concerned.

If the EU cannot fulfill the most basic of government functions — protecting its members — Italy should leave and craft its own strategic regional bloc with countries that are serious about protecting their national sovereignty.
