CCP: foreigners 'interfering'
Since 1949 the primary 'foreign influence' in HK has always been the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)! Instead of Hong Kong (HK) post 1997 handover enjoying CCP's policy of 'one country, two systems' HK now has 'one country one system'!
China is not the only stakeholder in HK! If it was, then why did it sign the Joint Declaration with UK? 14 July 2020 the USA cancelled its special trade status for HK - communist HK under CCP is now just another 'dirty' Chinese city in China.
The catch-all-phrase 'foreigners interfering' can not apply to HK because in the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration on the Question of Hong Kong ('Joint Declaration'), an international treaty signed by both China and UK filed with the United Nations, both parties agree that post 1997 handover HK would have a 'high degree of autonomy' for 50 years - which HK under CCP currently does not have!
'China’s Leader Warns Against ‘External Forces’ in Macau and Hong Kong'. Under the Joint Declaration, Emperor Xi Jinping please get your external forces OUT of HK!
CCP please answer this UN communication 6 October 2020 Statement by German Ambassador to UN from 39 countries.
Core fear of CCP: that it will lose its rule over China to another youth organization funded by foreigners!
Most Han Chinese societies, including China and Hong Kong (HK), remain feudal Chinese plutocracies which are under the control of triads (gangsters). The rare exception appears to be democratic Taiwan (ROC).
In our blog 'Chinese Communist Parasites (CCP) fear that young people will overthrow them!' we wrote that following the 'May 4th Movement' in 1919 the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) as a youth movement was heavily funded by the Soviet Union (USSR). CCP overthrew the Republic of China (ROC) in 1949 who retreated to Taiwan where they remain today.
CCP is a virus that has killed more than 77 million Chinese citizens in China since 1949. To decouple CCP from China 'cut the head off the snake'
China is the 'middle kingdom' around which the whole world revolves - a narsassistic view if ever there was one!
'Face' means that CCP has to always be seen, at least by its own Han Chinese citizens, as being the most powerful and successful nation lead by the current Emperor Xi Jinping!
Question; relative to CCP's Emperor Xi Jinping and his subjects in the middle kingdom who are 'foreigners' ?
Answer; foreigners are nobody and nothing - Han Chinese are also nobody and nothing!
The two Canadian 'Michaels' (Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor) are now in Chinese prisons as 'hostage' facing serious criminal charges because CCP wants the return of CCP Princess Huawei's chief financial officer Meng Wanzhou who is under house arrest in Vancouver pending extradition to the US.
China's South China Sea neighbours
Inevitably when the CCP acuses foreigners of 'interfering' they have reached the bottom of the barrel and they will continue abusing them until CCP gets what they want! They routinely coerce, entice, etc. Han Chinese to follow their example!
Example; 1967 communist riots in HK were created by CCP's 'cultural revolution' in order to take advantage of the colonial British and strengthen their position within China. Foreigners living in HK were negatively affected by the communists' anti-foreigner stance.
In Cantonese dialect 'gweilo' is a derogatory term. Gwái (鬼) means "ghost" or "devil", and lóu (佬) means "man" or "guy". The term gwáilóu therefore means "ghostly man", and is sometimes translated into English as "foreign devil".
The derogatory term 'gweilo' is sometimes used in Hong Kong (HK) - similarly there are derogatory terms used for other nationalities.
'The British Journal of Social Work' wrote: “Despite the reputation of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) as a vibrant, international centre of commerce and enterprise, the dominant Chinese culture largely ignores the position of resident, minority ethnic (ME) groups by attempting to maintain an ethnically homogenised monoculture (Ku, 2006). Serving to exclude culture, beliefs, traditions and languages of other members of society, it appears to be commensurate with certain xenophobic attitudes towards the needs of ME communities in Hong Kong (Ku et al., 2003). This has been a trend that has deepened rather than improved since the ‘handover’ period in 1997, when Hong Kong returned to China's sovereignty (Ho, 2001). Rice (2002) argues that the colonial government's reluctance to create specific legislation prohibiting racist discrimination in Hong Kong was later continued by the HKSAR government, which equally viewed it as unnecessary.” [“‘Ah Cha’!
