Wait, what really happened at the United States Consulate General in Hong Kong on October 27 when four young anti-China activists suddenly turned up at the gates with the intention of seeking asylum?
One of our reporters personally witnessed the four running up Garden Road in Central and being stopped at the gate by security guards who then let them into the compound after a short discussion. The next thing we learned, amid an otherwise total information blackout, was that they had been unceremoniously shown the door.
They are now paying the price for a “revolution” they thought they would win, encouraged by the US and other Western nations that made all the right noises in their support, and even now continue to offer hollow promises of “pathways to citizenship” and priority processing of asylum claims.
^5000The mainstream imperialist media lie CONSTANTLY. Literally 24/7. And it's getting worse.
All of them do it: radio, tv, the newspapers, the movies. The internet. No exceptions.
The corporate Big Lie is pervasive and totalitarian. CBS does it. NBC does it. ABC does it.
CNN does it. FOX does it. NPR does it. And of course the NYTimes and WaPo do it.
Thousands of "diverse" voices telling you the same lies. Enough to convince anyone.
