Free speech against the government should have **no** conditions. Especially when that government is a monolithic power that ALSO controls their major private companies. Giving that much power to the state is a horrible idea to any westerner.
TL;DR: Free speech is fine as long as its not about Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tibet, the government/leadership, religion, or Chinese military history

US...you are a towel!
State-ran Chinese Newspaper can’t hit a 3 like Ben Simmons tho
CCP propaganda. Literally.
I pity the Chinese people. They deserve freedom just as much as the people of HK
most dont want it sadly
They think that their ultra-powerful government has the peoples best interests at heart, and that they should unanimously obey the commands of the state like an obedient child listening to their father.
China is fucked up. Nba should call them out and live with the consequences. But when are we gonna hold ourselves accountable? We buy products produced by them purely for saving money, how is that better at this point? If everyone is actually serious ab
The only thing hes naive about is believing there can be any kind of compromise on this issue. In Chinas view, citizens and CCP, the NBA and silver are supporting seccesion not simply defending free speech. I saw a top comment that said, "black people
Wait, why dont the citizens in China agree with Morey? Isnt he speaking for them?
