Gordon Chang: Why Hong Kong protests may begin the end of communism

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, author and Asian history expert Gordon G. Chang joined Ezra Levant to talk about the popular support for the protests in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong residents have been protesting in the streets for months, and Chang guesses that up to 3/4 of the population supports the actions against the proposed extradition bill.

In June, we interviewed Chang about the protests where he gave an in-depth explanation of the protests.

but not here in canada.
We continue down the communist/sharia sewer every second of every day while those fleeing these types of regimes in their lands are all coming here and living free while we canuks are under adolf trudeau and his anti democratic/ oppression/no more freedom of speech/ no rights for canuks/ genocide agenda.
Mind boggling to say the least!

It’s not the end of “communism”. China abandoned communism 20 years ago in favour of the almighty yuan. Money literally buys anything you want in China, probably moreso than any of the nominal “capitalist” countries – the rampant corruption is a sign of that. What it may actually represent is the establishment of limits on an oppressive single-party state, an extension of the pushback that is already occurring in places like Canada or the US.

I suspecf the Chinese will let Hong Kong go. It’s a symbolic loss as the city doesn’t do anything that can’t be replaced internally, even in Shenzen which is directly adjacent, and it’s simply not worth the hit to international diplomacy. The rest of the world has looked the other way on their interior policies since they liberalized their policies and that’s not going to change now.
