Gordon Chang: Hong Kong protests against Chinese political interference

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, China expert Gordon G. Chang joined me to explain the motivations and political issues that saw one million Hong Kong residents hit the streets in protest.

I just finished reading the book of neuroscientist Hannah Critchlow. The subject is consciousness. Hannah states and I will quote “We each have a unique perception of the world. Every person on this planet holds their own, highly individual circuit board, brain wiring system shaped by the culmination of their past, personalized, set of experiences and memories. It is this cartography in the mind that forms our subjective view of the world, dictates how information about our world is processed, filtered and made sense of, before instructing us how to act.” Obviously what I wrote below is my perception what would I write and say if I would be Gordon Chang and what would I do if I would be living in the condition that the mega poor of Hong Kong mega poor are living. There is a Hebrew saying that the worm that lives in the horseradish thinks that there is nothing sweeter than horseradish. What it means to say that everyone that says, writes, does what he does it is based on his own unique consciousness. This applies also to presentation of last nights episode about the Coming collapse of China by Ezra Levant with whom I had disagreements in the not distant past on similar subjects.

Gordon Chang is completely out of date. His book came out in 2001 the same date that I visited China. It came out in 2001 it was written between 1998 and 2000. Even in 2001 it was out of date. Lot of water did flow in the Yangtze since then that was the last year that they closed the high dam on Yangtze and turned a very big portion of the Yangtze to a lake . Today’s China Actually is better than Hon- Kong. That is the city of Mega billionaires and Mega Poor. The economic reforms of China made mega billionaires that are buying out the scarce real estate that the government of Hon-Kong offers for sale (Actually it is not even sale rent for 50 year it does not matter because in 27 years if I am not mistaken Hon-Kong will become part of China anyhow) but in mean time the Government or the corporation that manages Hon-Kong makes a fortune that can keep the business taxes low. The mega Poor family have to live in a damp basements without window in a 100 sq foot cubicle in subhuman condition. Not even one lives in Mainland China under those conditions. It was not the mega poor that protested and even then the number of protesters was inflated possibly less that 200000 out of population of about 8 million I read not the propaganda but comment of people that live there. I believe that the border between between mainland China and Hon-Kong does not serve as it was 20 years ago to keep Mainland Chinese from coming in but prevent the mega poor Hon-Kong Resident from escaping

Thanks for that, JILL AND JOHN.

Every realtor in Canada has to fill out these silly FINTRAC forms every time somebody buys a home….it’s just to give the appearance that something is being done about money laundering. But everybody knows that the money-laundering is being done in law offices, not Real Estate brokerages – because the SCC has ruled that lawyers don’t have to report suspicious transactions.

“Any protests in Canada planned to fight against Trudeau’s dictatorship-ah no!! "

Nope. And there hasn’t been any disruptions of note in Alberta while Notley pissed all over everyone….and there wasn’t in Ontario while Wynne and McGuinty were doing the same thing.

The greatest tool these pieces of crap have is the absolute certainty that Canadians might whimper and whine, but they will never, ever rise up in angry and righteous protest.
