A lesson from Hong Kong

Wanna know what happens if the progressives and liberals ever win back all the branches of the government in the United States? Too dramatic? Overly cautionary? Hyper-political?

Pay attention to what is happening in Hong Kong.

Am I overreacting? Am I being alarmist? Am I blowing things out of proportion? No, of course it won’t be exactly like that. It will be a slower march towards Communism, but similar nonetheless.

China and their Communist government has designs on domination and they don’t care what freedoms and guarantees they made to the international community over Hong Kong. The freedom that the people who live there is all but about gone, and China is warning the international community to not interfere.

With current trends in progressive and liberal politics, the march towards socialism becomes a greater threat. As the march towards socialism gets stronger, cancel culture, censorship, and the expectation that everyone fall in line with their ideology increases too.

Dissent? Don’t speak out or you will get a mob of unfriendlies descending upon you to ruin your career, life, relationships, and demonize you until you apologize (doesn’t matter if you do, they still blacklist you) or disappear from the public (either from your doing it or from them doing it).

Don’t think it’s possible? When England handed over Hong Kong back to China in 1999, no one really thought it would ever happen there either. “Communist take over of Hong Kong? Nah, it’s enjoyed too much freedom for too long, plus it’s an international hub for the world’s businesses. It’ll never happen!” So much for that thought, right?

The slow march in the US is a lot like a frog in a pot. You don’t know you’re cooked until it is too late. Unfortunately, there are far too many people in the pot who are not paying close enough attention to what is going on.

China is a threat. Russia is a threat. Not from weapons, at least not yet, but from ideology.

There will be a day when we wake up and the state of the States will be piss poor and many were too blinded by the agenda to see it coming.

    Have you ever seen the movie Demolition Man? In the not-too-distant future, some of us are going to have to learn to enjoy rat meat.

        It’s easy for China to pick on Hong Kong. They are so little. I wish Russia would step up and tell them to knock their s*** off.

        I don’t think Russia will do much about China. Yes, they are both Communist, but they aren’t the same kind of Communism. That rivalry has been going on since Mao took China.

        I was reading last night about the deal that China inked with Iran and their move to get cheap Russian oil. A new triad is appearing and some people are s****ing themselves.
