Blinken Deletes Tweet Saying U.S. Would ‘Stand with Hong Kong’​

17 Sep 2021 ~~ By Gabrielle Reyes
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken has deleted a statement posted to his official Twitter account on Thursday that said the U.S. would “stand with the people of Hong Kong,” the South China Morning Post reported Friday.
Blinken’s now-deleted tweet, originally posted on September 16, read:
Beijing should let the voices of all Hong Kongers be heard. The PRC [People’s Republic of China]’s disqualification of district councilors only weakens Hong Kong’s long-term political & social stability. We stand with the people of Hong Kong and continue to support their human rights & fundamental freedoms.
The U.S. Secretary of State replaced the statement with a more muted tweet posted later on September 16:
The PRC’s disqualification of seven pro-democracy district councilors undermines the ability of people in Hong Kong to participate in their governance. Governments should serve the people they represent. Decreasing representation goes against the spirit of Hong Kong’s Basic Law.
Both of Blinken’s messages referenced the recent disqualification of seven Hong Kong district councilors by pro-China elements within the city’s government. Hong Kong’s government said it relieved the district officials of their civic duties after determining that they had recently provided “invalid” loyalty oaths to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
“[The seven district councilors] smeared the Chinese central government and the HKSAR [Hong Kong Special Administrative Region] government, stood on the side of anti-China, destabilizing forces in Hong Kong and interfered in Hong Kong affairs and China’s internal affairs as a whole,” a spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry’s Hong Kong office said in a statement issued September 17.
The statement seemingly addressed Blinken’s tweets on September 16, with the Beijing mouthpiece writing:
It is sheer hypocrisy and [a] double standard that the US vilifies the just measure of the HKSAR government, even as it itself has an “iron net” system to require public officers to swear allegiance at home, and disqualifies lawmakers for violating parliamentary rules.
The Chinese foreign ministry’s Hong Kong office further stated that it strongly opposed “irresponsible comments from certain US politicians” on Hong Kong, adding, “no US slanders” would deter the CCP’s efforts to ensure “patriots administering Hong Kong.”
Hong Kong’s Legislative Council passed a bill in May that requires members of the city’s 18 district councils to pledge an oath of loyalty to the Basic Law, or Hong Kong’s de facto constitution, which states that Hong Kong is a part of China.

The director of the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of China’s State Council, Xia Baolong, said Hong Kong should be ruled by “patriots” only when he introduced the legislation in February. The term “patriot” includes “people who love China, its constitution and the Communist Party and excludes anti-China ‘troublemakers,'” Xia said at the time.


Comment:
Translation.... Hong Kong is now on it's own... Joey Xi and his clowns have caved to to China and complete control can now be pursued. Taiwan is next on the list. Blinken's real boss, China, told him to delete it. Good puppy... The spineless wimp turn his back on Hong Kong.
The only place this Joey Xi's administration would stand with Hong Kong would be in front of a firing squad.
Unfortunately, the world in general will continue to take advantage of our currently traitorous and weak government currently residing in the White House and Congress.

What an incredibly small thing to make such a big deal out of.

I am glad that our silly little Secretary of State has used milder language.

We all know that the United States of America is not going to do anything to "stand" with Hong Kongers.

China has effectively nullified its 50-year treaty with Britain, and the Lion is too weak to take any effective action against the Dragon. And so is the Eagle.

Some nation needs to force China to stay in its lane, but who?

Will Japan eventually come to the rescue of the world?

I think you will find that Democrats need to spend a lot more time deleting things and trying to change history in a variety of ways to help them stay in power.

Now that they control everything, it is all they have to do.
