– The human rights situation in China is at its best in history. Since the national security law in Hong Kong came into effect more than a year ago, human rights and freedoms of the overwhelming majority of Hong Kong citizens have suffered “zero damage.”
– If the United States really wants to “stand with” the Chinese people who “pursue” human rights, it should side with the overwhelming majority, not the other way around.
U.S. politicians have been constantly claiming to defend Hong Kong’s human rights and freedom and “stand with the people of Hong Kong.” But actions speak louder than words. All their slogans have proved to be nothing but lies.
All Chinese people including people in Hong Kong have already clearly seen what these politicians are defending is not the Hong Kong people’s human rights and freedom, but the “freedom” of a handful of rioters to disrupt Hong Kong’s stability and endanger China’s national security, and the “freedom” of these politicians to continue interfering in Hong Kong’s affairs and containing China.
Under the pretext of democracy and human rights, these politicians have been offering real endorsements for the rioters, which fully exposes the double standards of these U.S. politicians. They condemned the Capitol riot with utmost rage, but nevertheless called similar acts in Hong Kong “a beautiful sight to behold.” They have enacted the world’s most thorough national security law at home, but nevertheless tried to smear China’s parallel efforts to plug the security hole in Hong Kong.
In the name of “press freedom,” they are interfering with and undermining the rule of law in Hong Kong. Amid the closure of Apple Daily, those U.S. politicians fully exposed their tricks to smear others. They tried to turn some media organizations into extra-legal entities for anti-China forces to disrupt Hong Kong and contain China. By making waves on Hong Kong issues, the U.S. side has revealed itself as the “black hand” in stirring up opposition and controlling public opinion. The so-called “press freedom” is nothing but a fig leaf for their self interests.
They twisted facts, deliberately smeared the rule of law in Hong Kong and grossly interfered in China’s internal affairs. “Patriots administering Hong Kong” is the trend of the times and the aspiration of the Hong Kong people. Improving Hong Kong’s electoral system is necessary for the sustained and healthy development of Hong Kong’s democratic system. When peace and stability were finally restored in Hong Kong, and the rights and freedoms of Hong Kong citizens were better protected in a secure environment, the United States leveled accusations and attacked Hong Kong’s efforts to improve its electoral system, and continued to demonize the national security law in Hong Kong, which fully exposes Washington’s hegemonic nature.
While habitually bullying others and wielding the big stick of sanctions, those U.S. politicians have in fact exhausted their tactics. For them, only a chaotic Hong Kong serves their interests. The more stable Hong Kong is, the more anxious they will be. And now, their “agents” were arrested. Their plans for disturbing the city have failed. No matter how much pressure or how many rounds of sanctions the United States can impose, they will be nothing but waste paper.
All in all, some U.S. politicians’ concern about Hong Kong’s democracy is a sham. Their true intention is to meddle in Hong Kong’s politics and China’s internal affairs. Their real purpose is to use Hong Kong as a tool to realize their political interests and contain China’s development. The so-called “standing with the Hong Kong people” is nothing but a cover to deceive the world and reflects the hypocrisy of the U.S. politicians. What they are doing is to make enemies with the Hong Kong people. Those politicians are advised to stop repeating these cliches.
In 1840, Britain opened the door of China with ships and guns, and Hong Kong was gradually occupied by Britain. For more than 100 years since then, the Chinese people have waged indomitable struggles for national liberation, national independence and social progress. Today, the Chinese nation has made a great leap from standing up, getting prosperous to becoming strong, and their effort to realize the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation has entered an irreversible historical process. China has become an important force in safeguarding world peace and promoting common development, and its relations with the rest of the world have undergone tremendous changes.
With the implementation of a series of effective measures, including the national security law, Hong Kong’s social order has been restored, its development has returned to the right track, and the city has opened a new chapter with good governance. Hong Kong is getting more stable and prosperous with a better implementation of the “one country, two systems” principle. This is the strongest response to those U.S. politicians who slander Beijing’s Hong Kong policy.
No one can stop Hong Kong from reclaiming its glorious past. The Chinese people will never allow any foreign force to bully, oppress or enslave them, and the cause of “one country, two systems” will never be obstructed or undermined by any external force. Anyone who would attempt to do so will find themselves on a collision course with a great wall of steel forged by over 1.4 billion Chinese people. History has proved countless times that the final victory will always belong to the indomitable Chinese people.
