Hong Kong Burning - Revolution of Our Times

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Manager of the local Houston team tweets that he supports Hong Kong, and then quickly recants, but it’s too late. The entire NBA will be punished for his sin of free speech.

Mainland China has now banned all preseason broadcasts in country, and worse to come.
Trump says NFL players who kneel during national anthem 'maybe shouldn't be in the country'
"You have to stand proudly for the national anthem, or you shouldn’t be playing, you shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country," Trump said.
Worse already came, America has a tyrant who wants to punish dissenters too. And his sheep baa baa in consent, just like China's do.

Funnily enough, my mates in Hong Kong say life is going on as normal. They've been delayed a few times on the way to work, but apart from that have no protest related issues good or bad.

I suspect its more localised than many broadcasters would have us believe.

My HK friends are saying they have to wake up 2 hours earlier than usual to get to work, and are often witnessing disturbing events out of their windows.

It is understandable why the CCP are stressing out about the Hong Kong protests given that the last two massive government rebellions started in the South East.
Mao Zedong's Long March that led to the Communist revolution civil war (1934-49) started in the south. The massive Taiping Rebellion (1852-64), which was led by a Christian convert who believed he was the son of God and the younger brother of Jesus, began in the south and spread north.

The north south divide in China is real and causing them concern once again.

Meanwhile in Iraq:

"There are many things that separate the dramatic scenes of unrest in Hong Kong and those in cities across Iraq, but there’s at least one thing that binds them: The sheer bravery of protesters in both places incensed with an entrenched establishment and the violence it’s deploying to defend its interests.
In Iraq, daily protests since Tuesday in Baghdad and cities in the country’s south have led to more than 100 deaths and left some 6,000 people wounded, according to Iraq’s Interior Ministry. Activists fear the death toll may be far higher."
