Sorry About The Airport

By mike flugennockFriday - August 16th, 2019Categories: Globalization, media

If the fact that this and the previous “revolution” in Hong Kong have been backed by the National Endowment for Democracy and “Freedom House”, and the fact that current “pro-democracy” leaders have been peeped meeting with US Consulate officials, and the fact that the mob in Hong Kong have been spotted waving US flags and singing “Star-Spangled Banner” – not to mention that most of the signs are in English – perhaps the fact that the Hong Kong “revolutionaries” are getting big fat shout-outs from Nikki Haley should convince you that the “revolution” in Hong Kong is a massive, bogus US-backed astroturf show.

This past Tuesday, a mob affiliated with the “revolution” in Hong Kong took over the international airport and brought the chaos, confronting police and causing spectacular disruptions in air travel. The real kicker was when the “revolutionaries” spent the next day greeting travelers at the airport wearing symbolic eye bandages in solidarity with an injured comrade, holding signs apologizing for the previous day’s havoc. That’s right, apologizing. Idiots, why the hell were they there, then? Isn’t that the whole point of protest? Hell, that sure was the point of getting upwards of 100,000 people into the streets of Seattle and Washington DC to bring the city to a standstill and disrupt the meetings of the WTO, IMF and World Bank. Disuption was our jam that day, f’crissake; we sure as hell weren’t apologizing for anything.

Christ, man, c’mon.

#VenezuelaLibre

“Hello, Mom…? It’s Juan. Can you come pick me up from coup practice?”
–Juan Guaido, “Interim President” of Venezuela, 04.30.19

I can’t pretend I didn’t enjoy watching the massive faceplant that was “Operation Liberty”, the latest attempt to topple Chavismo and install Washington darling and fascist enabler Juan “Guido” Guaido in Venezuela.

It was pure comedy gold, watching Guido’s handlers in Washington stepping on their own cranks trying to spin the events in Caracas this past week, and Guido’s flunkies seeking refuge in the Brazilian and Chilean embassies in order to continue their “provisional” shenanagans. It was like watching a coup attempt staged by Mel Brooks.

Philippines in Red

In solidarity with my friends and comrades at DCMJ and StopTheDrugWar.org and their protest at the Philippine Embassy this past week against the ongoing program of terror against drug users – and other “undesirables” – by the Duterte regime.
