    Just like Hong Kong has the right to fight.

    I mean... I'm not a lawyer. We are not in court.

    mite not a fight they are going to win. It’s not a fight the rest of the world should even care about frankly.

    Oh my bad.
    Someone needs to let them know that they will for sure lose.

    Meanwhile, I'll find something else to care about.

    I'm sure there's some Donald Trump gossip I could go dig into.

    hio Cubo!

    lol

    the moral stand is folks furiously expressing their outrage on their "made in China" computers on the interwebs.

    the moral stand is the same one that those soybean farmers are taking. namely, WE WANT ACCESS TO THE CHINESE MARKET! strong stuff.

    I don't really understand the logic behind this post. I believe this situation is more a case of Big Sports and other mega-corps co-opting woke culture for money before, but are now giving it a big middle finger in exchange for Chinese money. It doesn't invalidate the sincere beliefs of people who seek better treatment for everyone currently being scapegoated by the alt-right and their ilk.

    But look at "kneel-gate". As soon as the Piece of Shit in Chief commented, and in turn his die hard fanbase followed his instructions, the NFL acted instantly to stifle the movement because they didn't want to lose money. They didn't decide anything on ideology; they just went the way the wind was blowing. If the American people had told Trump to get stuffed and supported Kapernick, so too would have the NFL. But again, that doesn't mean the players who kneeled in solidarity with Kapernick were insincere in their support.

    As to the latter part of your post, those issues you mention may sound like small potatoes on their own, but they are symptomatic of far bigger societal issues and ought to be in the forefront of discussion around what people mean when they refer to religious freedom, and how the internet can quickly reshape the meaning of symbols in an era of social media bubbles replete with coded messaging.

    Please don't answer right away, if at all. Give this some thought. If that sounds pretentious, it's not my intent. Rather it is just that these discussions sometimes move too quickly to really consider everything fully and I got that impression from your post.

    Wonder if the CCP's propaganda unit has finally noticed Sherdog. They are/were very busy setting up fake accounts on Facebook and Twitter. I see their shills on another foreign forum peddling pro CCP talking points.

    I don't think all of them are paid shills from China. There are millions of Chinese living in Europe and North America, many recent immigrants. They tend to be a lot more pro CCP than the generations in the past. Think about it, they're the ones that benefitted from CCP's rule.

    Funny thing is, Hong Kong has been granted certain liberties due to the agreement of the '97 handover between China and UK. Gotta admire the shitfaced Commie politicians in treating the British Crown's words as shit.
