    A lot of people do not realise that ultra-nationalism that is happening in China can be a peril to all ethnic Chinese people regardless of their nationality and will even impact people that look Chinese, like Vietnamese, Thais, Japanese and Korean people.

    Late last month, Jiayang Fan, a Chinese-American journalist, was harassed and interrogated by some demonstrators after she spoke Mandarin while covering the anti-government protests in Hong Kong. Derogatory insults and accusations like “yellow thug” and “commie agent” were thrown at her. “My Chinese face is a liability,” she
    tweeted, “just got asked if I’m from the US and am a reporter why I have Chinese face”.​

    Many Australians of Asian decent have been copping it for at least 100 years. At least it’ll give the Australians of Arab descent a break for a while if the target falls on the Asian looking ones. :p

    Blackfellas are probably quietly happy for the reprieve of the last few years too! Now if we can just find a whipping boy for us angry old white men then all of the persecuted in society can have a bit of a breather. :D

    Today in the US at least, it IS the angry old "white men" who are the persecuted, at least by the MSM and the lefty goons who follow them.

    At least we angry old white men have the best sense of humour and can laugh at it all. I don’t think FemNazis have a sense of humour at all for example. :D

    IN HONG KONG, REVOLUTION IS A RACKET

    2,500 democracy thugs arrested so far, HK$200,000 (US$25,000) apiece in legal defense fees.

    Total: HK$500 million (US$62m).

    A substantial portion comes from HK taxpayers, in the form of the government's legal aid.

    Almost all of it goes to "pro-democracy" lawyers, who are a pillar of anti-Beijing political subversion.

    On top of that, bewigged judges let the hooligans off with minimal punishment.

    Such is Hong Kong's vaunted Rule of Law. And this is how the blackshirts and their legal accomplices continue to undermine it -- even after being arrested and "brought to justice."

    It's also how, and why, subversion is a sustainable growth industry in Hong Kong.

    The problem with HK is the society is too tensed up, due to very high cost of living (and housing) vs income so the millennials are frustrated. Singapore faces similar problems, but has subsidised government housing (1/10 the cost of HK) and healthcare is also partially subsidised for citizens. HK is a good example of what will happen when you let property developers become the government.

    If I’m a HK property developer, I’ll be worried. As unlikely as it appears, it is not possible to rule out confiscation of land.

    HK people are very hard working. They are now working very hard protesting on streets. But the world has changed, robots can work even harder and they won’t protest and don’t need to eat. This is why trying to control everyone will fail because hubots will be redundant in the future.

    What will happen to the hubots once they are redundant? Maybe end up like the ISIS prisoners and their families and babies in Syria, no one wants them. Trump doesn’t want them because it costs money to feed them.

    I'm surprised that after last week there are still any Apple stores standing in Hong Kong after Apple sold Hong Kong out to China.

    It doesn't matter how you call it. Ownership, leasehold, 99 years, 999 years, freehold, long term lease, right to build. Even if you own it 100%, the government can take it back at below market price. This was what happened in Singapore 40 years ago.

    http://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/history/events/1f669eff-bc82-49d1-a27c-2624e4cab8c6

    After Singapore gained independence in 1965, the government had a pressing need for an adequate supply of land to carry out its developmental projects, especially those concerning resettlement and industrialisation.[1] The Land Acquisition Ordinance of 1920 was repealed by the Land Acquisition Act in 1966 so as to give the government the power of compulsory land acquisition for public development. The act also regulated the amount of compensation to be given to landowners who had their properties acquired by the government.[2]

    The Land Acquisition Act was passed by parliament on 26 October 1966 and came into effect on 17 June the following year. Any disputes between the government and landowners over the compensation amounts were presided over by an Appeals Board.[3] To further expedite government developmental projects through land acquisition, the act was amended in 1973 in order to curb land speculation and limit the cost of land acquisition. The revised act fixed the compensation amount for acquired land at the market value as at 30 November 1973 or at the date of gazette notification, whichever was lower.[4]

    Nine lucky Spanish politicians and separatist just got jailed for 9 to 12 years,
    These Chinese separatist likely have been executed in South Korea in 1980s.
    What will China do to them?

    China can kidnap people and often accused of such acts, why they need this repatriation law for HK ???
    it could be just a bait to remove their targets elements inside HK

    You mean a PRC agent impersonating a HK police officer.
