I just wanna explain the situation, so please dont make personal abuse. Its NOT an issue about democracy or human rights or freedom of speech at all, its about the Integrity of Territorial Sovereignty. If you learn some history you will aware that how improper of Moreys tweet. First of all, we need to reach a consensus that there is no strict "Freedom of Speech". Honestly its kinda funny if you say you will defend anyones rights to freely express opinions. Well would you defend the opinions that support Terrorism or Gender Discrimination or Racial Discrimination? Will you defend the right of Donald Sterling? In China, all issues about Territorial Sovereignty is non-negotiable, just like racial discrimination in USA. Because 100 years ago, the Qing government was so weak that it had to cede territory to other countries, which is a humiliating history that all Chinese remember. Now Although China is economically and militarily strong, Chinese people still remember the humiliation 100 years ago, and no Chinese wanna that experience again. So you will know why China always maintain a strong stance on the Territorial Issue. Now its clear enough, Morey, the manager of the team which has most Chinese fans, tweeted about how he support the separatist activities in HK. This behavior really broke Chinese fans hearts. This is the non-negotiable issue that no one should comment. Actually in China, Moreys statementiis as unforgivable as the Sterlings discourse in USA. Well if I have business in USA, I would never comment on your untouchable issues, think about it! To sum up, the issue is totally not about the freedom or democracy or human rights, its just about the Territorial Sovereignty in China. If you have a chance, please come to China to learn how Western countries misunderstand us. Its a beautiful country with kind people and splendid views, we just care too much about the Territorial Sovereignty.
I will not defend someone that is supporting Racism but I will defend his right to be racist.
Sadly I think even in America this mentality is being lost. We all know the difference between words and actions. But so many people want to silence the opposite opinion. Both sides need to exist and a conversation needs to occur.
Donald Sterling had the right to say the dumbass racist shit he said, but that doesn’t mean what he said was okay or we have to support what he said due to the freedom of speech. I keep seeing Chinese fans bring up Donald Sterling and it doesn’t make
You are all obedient sheep hugging the knees of your CCP masters. Youre brainwashed.
European here. It’s absolutely ridiculous how the Chinese won‘t accept the freedom of speech in the West. Your post doesn’t change anything tbh. It’s even more ridiculous that you think that no one should comment on this topic. We as the West will
Freedom of speech gets fascists elected. It shouldn’t be anywhere
That must be why fascists governments try so hard to censor it
Congratulations, you just outed yourself as being a complete dumbass.

But HK doesn’t wasn’t to separate They listed their demands. They want autonomy
that was very brave of you to post this here
Tried to explain but made it worse by basically saying that we don’t have the right to comment the situation
... before its too late
BTW : Theres a difference between a company firing someone for statements, and a government doing it. These are massive differences.
This isnt at all about freedom. Lol Hong Kong is the last place anyone in that country can supposedly freely protest. Your government has implemented a social credit system an kills or imprisons those that speak Ill of the CCP. Hong Kong are not looking t
Beyond that, CCP is trying to break their pact with Great Britain and end the One Country, Two Systems 28 years earlier than agreed upon.
Bang on son
> tweeted about how he support the separatist activities in HK Yea, no. He supports HK, stop twisting it as though he was supporting separatist activities. Hong Kong does not want direct separation. As detailed by the 5 demands, one of the big things
This post lasted a whole 10 minutes lol
Without free speech, there is no way to change government. The government becomes stone and, like stone, it crumbles with the test of time. For the sake of this country, and the great sports that we have the pleasure to watch, I hope that free speech is
You know...the point of freedom of speech is not to protect an individual’s rights to say whatever they want and be asses to people, the point of it was (and still is) to protect people’s right to challenge the actions of those in power. You are pret
Good argument, except for your definition of freedom of speech and its examples. Your examples is equivalent to racism which is a no no in America because of HUMANITARIAN RIGHTS. Freedom of speech is more like being able to criticize our government if the
So this post was removed? What was wrong with it? Dont the chinese have freedom of expression here?
