A growing backlash has begun across Hong Kong against US-funded protests that have attempted to disrupt governance and commerce as part of a floundering movement to maintain Western influence in the region.
The West has more to do with the Hong Kong protest movement than it would like us to know. It’s the ugly face of Washington’s long-standing foreign policy directed at destabilizing one of its long-standing economic foes: China.
With little else to offer the nations of Southeast Asia, the US has opted instead to wield the familiar and well-honed weapon of political subversion to peel potential partners away from Beijing in Washington’s continued bid to rescue its waning primacy in Asia-Pacific.
The Western media along with multiple US and European funded “rights” groups have sounded the alarm over what they claim is a wave of assassinations and physical attacks on “activists.”
It is inconceivable that the organizers of the protests are unaware of the NED ties to some of its members.
Watch: From Colombia and Brazil, Kei Pritsker expounds on the decades of US meddling in South America that preceded the ongoing coup in Venezuela.
Venezuela faces dangerous destabilization with the US and its allies having recognized opposition figure Juan Guaido as “interim president” and declaring actual Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro no longer legitimate.
Rarely is US hypocrisy so cynical and overt as a recent US State Department investigation into ongoing violence in Myanmar, all while the US continues its full spectrum support of Saudi Arabia’s genocidal war on Yemen.
In its constant Cold War-like histrionics over Russia’s alleged “election meddling,” the United States, whose own government data shows it has interfered in at least 81 foreign elections between 1946 and 2000, only brings to greater attention its own abject hypocrisy and bankrupt pomposity.
