Hong Kong pro-democracy groups win in landslide, so what’s next?


Jamie Metzl, a Senior Fellow at the Atlantic Council, says that pro-democracy supporters in Hong Kong must seize on the goodwill gained by a landslide victory in the local elections.
More than 2.9 million people turned out to vote in the elections, which have been framed as a de facto referendum on the almost six months of ongoing protests in the semi-autonomous Chinese city.

      Liberals and democrats hate democracy they want a new world order with a liberal dictator

    • That’s what happens when you have a bunch of dumb socialists that have lived in such wealth and abundance that they have no context for what freedoms they’re handing away to the government.

    • Who cares about US?
      I’m disappointed CCP is a bunch of losers in denial right now.
      It’s clearly a big problem yet absolutely no sign of capability to handle the situation. They weren’t even prepared!
      Imagine this in a real conflict! CCP will be even worse than Japanese empire during WW2.
      What a bunch of pathetic losers.

      Unfortunately that is a very true statement. I do believe that there are a few good politicians but they have their own agendas and fold to pressure. Case in point…Bernie Sanders 2016; I believe he was thrown under the bus by the DNC. It was blatantly obvious what the DNC was doing to get their “lying queen Hillary” would be elected.
      Yes, I know “every politician” does lie but if you or I violated the handling of Confidential, Secret, and Top Secret material like she did. We would be in Leavenworth like that dude who was in the Army and now is a “woman”.
      I apologize for my long rant.

    • @David Welch And yes the DNC screwed Bernie in 2016. That’s why Tulsi left the DNC for it’s a corrupt as organizations get. I’m not even a Bernie fan, but I’m not blind and understand he continuously gets screwed by Democrats and the media equally. Same with Tulsi on many levels. I like her for being anti war and her ideals on foreign policy and diplomacy. That’s just not popular in politics unfortunately. Nor is taking care of people like Bernie wants to do. I’m a Conservative so what do I know? Lol

    • @acesonfire Fair enough 👍. It’s going to snow in the Midwest however, so it’s parked.

  3. What’s next? The revolution continues WITHOUT support from the US.

    • Hong Kong is part of China…..we did get involved as much as possible…..our President told Xi that if he sent troops into HK it would affect the trade agreement….what else would you have the USA do???

      Unintentional body part donations is a real thing in an undemocratic China

    • You do remember that both China and the US are nuclear Powers don’t you? You realize what would happen if those nukes started flying.

      What are you talking about no support from America? We literally passed a Hong Kong Human rights resolution last week…

    • @Bearded Patriot Every major power on the planet as a deal of influence over what’s going on in Hong Kong right now.

  4. It is ironic that the government in Beijing continues to destabilize HK while they claim they will never allow that. The only stable future for China, let alone HK, requires more democracy. Authoritarianism has a reputation for being decidedly unstable for lack of both accountability and flexibility.

  5. What is it? CRIMINALS ALL OVER the world wide GOVERNMENT POWER.

  6. I’m glad theBeiijing guy said that any attempts to damage the prosperity of Hong Kong would fail. Democracy is what gave Hong Kong it’s prosperity.

    • Total bullshit. However it’s good that Americans have fooled the world about democracy. In that way China have been and remain
      very competitive. Just think of democratic India, incapable to develop as China. That being so, China becomes and remains the biggest trading partner of US and EU. So that means China can write its rules, for e.g technology transfer against big China. market access. So America please continue to promote democracy everywhere ( except China)

    • @chly coh So that means the Communist Party of China can write its rules, the citizens of China have no say in the matter.

    • @Anzu Wyliei it’s not, that means every capitalist country would be successful,the poorest countries in the world are capitalist, China communist and has the second largest economy, if you have a country with low education, it doesn’t matter what type of government it is,you’re gonna have high poverty, unless that country has high natural resources

    • @King Green China is barely communist by Karl Marx standards. Over the last 40 years it has all but dropped its equal distribution of resources and has allowed businesses to build a billionaire class. Although China has a very strong and centralized power in the Communist Party, corporations have a great deal of autonomy.
      Other communist Nations have more traditional system like Cuba and North Korea and these struggle economically.

    • @Anzu Wyliei north North Korea isn’t communist, and Cuba has an embargo against them by the US,so you got my point, it’s not capitalist or communism, its whomever running the country

  7. Yay to HK!!
    Carrie Lam be a leader, escort the youth currently stuck in Uni out peacefully .. have real dialogues.

    • And please stop throwing Molotov cocktails at random people, it will give China more of a justification to pull a Tiananmen Square with tanks.

  8. Now that’s a slap on the Chinese communist party and Xi

    • @Balsha 18 no it doesn’t, HK is occupied by the communist government only under specific terms in the handover, particularly that HK retained its full independence “1 country 2 systems” china has violated that so by the agreement they could technically reject chinese rule entirely.

    • Should have waited till the end of the treaty, brought weapons in, gather intel and strategic info and used whatever weapons necessary to gain leverage China has zen like patience

    • @Cosmo Joe it doesn’t matter Hong Kong is in China weather u like it or not nothing won’t change China owns Hong Kong

    Imagine having to fight for your freedom omg not to be controlled by the Chinese I truly feel sorry for them.

    • American soldiers fight for your freedom.Join the military.

    • You, inbred American feel sorry for people in China? Look at your country. Deep state dictatorship with Goebbels media. They lie to you from the cradle to the grave, but you are too stupid to see the shackles. Being stupid and uneducated is the worst form of slavery.

    • Leo O The life expectancy and quality of life is much much better in America. Look at the average income in China about 12,000, compared to atleast 31,000 in the us.

      @King M and it’s all on the line with the current kakistocratic Administration and Senate.

    Hong Kong: “we don’t want to be part of China”
    China: “hold my chicken feet”

  15. They used paper ballots unlike America and their hack ready voting machines.

      DM Tea 3 million voters vs almost 130 million

    • Chris Anderson | November 26, 2019 at 5:29 AM | Reply

      @AJtheAggravated You say that as if the number of people counting the ballots can’t scale up with the amount of voters… There isn’t a firm limit to the number of counters. You can still easily limit it to 1000 ballots counted per volunteer no matter what the total is.

    • DM Tea Where’s the proof any votes were changed in US elections? More lies and crying from a loser Democrat.

  16. Stay strong Hong Kong! #ISTANDWITHHONGKONG

  17. Free Hong Kong, also all those captured protesters are dead now

  18. China: “I remind you that Hong Kong is still part of China and the Oppression will continue until Suppression breaks out.”

    • For 22 years , HK paid 0 tax revenue to Chinese Central government. My home town Shanghai hand over 154.3 billion dollars tax revenue in one year (2018). So here is win win solution, HK people pay that 154 billion for Shanghai and they can do whatever do want. Shanghai will take the burden of that “Oppression” for HK.

      @bin chen I’m sorry but u have to disagree with you brother. Democracy, liberty, and freedom from oppression should never come with pre-conditions, especially monetary pre-conditions.

    • Armastat the people of Hong Kong did not elect to be part of China and will fight to stop Chinese occupation of our country.

    • bin chen what does Hong Kong get in return for paying taxes? The people of Hong Kong don’t even want to be part of China so why should they have to pay a government they want no part in?

  19. Lets see those chinese bots argue this one 😂
