Global Companies, Brands Dare Not Support HK Protests


In its report “Factbox: Global firms take action after China criticism over Hong Kong protests” today Reuters gives a list of major global companies and brands that have taken actions to avoid hurting Chinese Mainlanders’ feelings over Hong Kong protests, including Apple, Nike, Vans, Tiffany, Activision Blizzard Inc. and Givenchy.

US Secretary of State Pompeo says in an interview ““I think American businesses are waking up to the risks inherent in compliance with the Chinese government’s rules”

However, the fact is that it has nothing to do with Chinese government’s rules. It concerns Chinese Mainlanders’ attitude towards Hong Kong protesters’ xenophobia against Chinese Mainlanders. Mainlanders in Hong Kong have been beaten up by the protesters indiscriminatedly simply because they have spoken Mandarin.

Protesters’ hatred of Mainlanders have grown now to the extent of smashing Mainland banks and companies including private ones.

Mainland Chinese media have not shown on TV what Hongkong people have seen on TV screen of protesters beating up Mainlanders and smashing Mainland firms. I think that Mainland government is good in avoiding doing so to upset Mainland Chinese people. Otherwise you may probably see Mainlanders smashing the firms whether Chinese or foreign ones that support Hong Kong protesters.

Hong Kong protesters’ hatred may have been provoked by some people who want to sow discord between Hongkongers and Mainlanders. That is not a big issue as Hong Kong is but small compared with the vast size and huge population of Mainland China. Pompeo, however, has obviously been trying to sow discord between Chinese and American peoples in distorting the Hong Kong issue and putting groundless accusation on Chinese government. He probably forgets that Chinese and American are the two largest and most powerful peoples in the world. Enmity between them may give rise to lots of trouble and even wars between them.

What does he want? Does he want to turn the peoples of the two countries into dead enemies?

    Beijing and HK has already laid out a ferocious strategy to crush these unfilial disrespectful bastards. Its just a formality when Carrie Lam ask Beijing for help. Hundreds of heads will be cracked and crushed with boots and batons, no need for real bullets, its more fun this way. For the sake of national security and patriotism, Beijing must televise rioters bad behaviours towards mainlanders, this way patriotic Chinese wants to join in for the kill. Then impose curfew according to govt. control and finally using live bullets to those who dares to defy the rule of law.

    Months of support for HK rioters by western media resulted in copycat emerging in western cities. The last couple of days “Extinction” have been occupying British cities and doing their own “HK style” protest of airport crippling the economy. While its has not yet descended into violent the fear is the continual support for HK rioters risk condoning similar action at home. Businesses are increasingly being targeted and if they don’t unite against these protestors the global economy will be at risk.

          Old head Trump is a conman and racist. He omitted the word black as in Kiss Obama’s Black Ass. This is a reference to Biden a white man serving under a black man. In 2018, Trump said ‘Black people are too stupid to vote for me’ and suggested that all countries run by blacks are ‘shitholes.’ This is confirmation by his former lawyer Michael Cohen.

          When Obama was the POTUS, he was advised that an assassination attempt was a possibility by a racist. Now that Trump is a confirmed racist, I just wondered if he fears an assassination attempt.

            LOL, sorry but you are just a coward when you said you would rather watch on tv and let the red guards fight the rioters. Since you are not part of the leadership, you could contribute just like the red guards and not sitting on your ass watching how the rioters get smacked.

                Exactly no red guards, it didn’t stop you from agreeing with the poster who mentioned the red guards first in the comment. You and the other guys talk like die hard patriots and criticizing the rioters deserving to get clamped down but would rather stay safe at home and not taking part of the action. COWARDS. It is also highly possible that some of the posters are from one person based how you guys praise each other or that you guys know each other. The pattern and behavior is very obvious.

                    Cowards don’t deserve to act like patriots, let that sink in for a moment and you will find out how right i am about your character. Ha so called patriots, you make me laugh, real patriots from Mainland would have beaten up those rioters, just like what happened in Shenzhen where some dude from HK got beaten up for screaming come beat me and he got what he deserved. Guys like you make me sick, acting with high morale but too coward to do anything.
