"Would say"? I think your friends would say that at the very least they've heard of CIA/US involvement in the HK demonstration/riots. Not that the HKers don't have beefs but the US and its poodles are in a cold war with China right now. Switch on any MSM channel, left or right and it's China this and China that. Hardly hear "Russia" or "Putin" these days. The US is exploiting your friends' misery to score points against China.
Do you know anything about HK, Jimbo?
Have you ever been there?
Read a book about it's history?
Or are you - in your default colossally insensitive/sociopathic style - just exploiting
others' misfortune in your endless sad sack quest to make yourself look like
you know something the rest of us don't?
You show pictures of people like Joshua Wong with various US figures
in an attempt to "prove" top secret top-level discussions aimed to destabilising Xi
and the other butchers of Beijing.
As usual, you fail to provide any context that might derail the agenda you are trying
Given that the world media had anointed JW as the reluctant figurehead of the peaceful
umbrella protests of 2014, why wouldn't such people be queueing up to meet him?
While not yet old enough to vote, JW managed to alert and inspire thousands of kids of his age
to take an interest in China's shameful theft of their democratic rights and settled futures.
In an attempt to shut JW up and prevent him from standing for public office, China has continued to
harass him and his family. In 2017, they even had him sentenced to eight months in gaol for unlawful
assembly - a chilling precursor of what is happening now, the charge of unlawful assembly.
Sneer at the likes of JW all you like, J, but at least he has the courage of his convictions.
You on the other hand are just a grubby little nobody who's just waiting for another tragedy to
come along so you can make yourself look important while gorging on the victims' misery.
