Rats in street holding tea gatherings

The Hong Kong Chief Executive describes the wanted overseas eight as ‘rats in the street’. Regina Ip says they should be ‘avoided at all costs’…

…while it’s okay for the suspects’ relatives to contact them, people offering any form of financial support may get into trouble … [and] some fugitives have been organising tea gatherings in places such as the UK to lobby foreign parliament members to sanction Hong Kong.

She adds

…some “yellow shops” have sent food to support overseas tea gatherings, in which national security fugitives wanted by Hong Kong police continue to “brainwash” people.

A cartoon recounts the authorities’ struggle against ‘black violence’, then ‘NatSec threats’, and now ‘soft resistance’. A comment on the pressure on ‘yellow’ businesses as ‘soft confrontation’…

GovHK recast the entire democracy movement as a color revolution, either forgetting or knowing how popular the 2019 protests and the broader movement were. Result: it now sees itself besieged by a hostile populace that it must tame and control.

    A far as I know rats do not exist in Hong Kong. I never heard anyone refer to them. They are in fact in the newspapers and in common parlance “large brown mice”.

    That the Governor refers to them is indicative of his own lurking fears – and his ultimate greatest fear, that he will by thoughtcrime betray the central ideas inherent in HongSoc, the trans communist ideology now dominating Hong Kong. As a trans communist himself, it is only a matter of time before John lets something slip.

    Like Winston Smith he clearly fears Room 101.

    “He had moved a little to one side, so that Winston had a better view of the thing on the table. It was an oblong wire cage with a handle on top for carrying it by. Fixed to the front of it was something that looked like a fencing mask, with the concave side outwards. Although it was three or four metres away from him, he could see that the cage was divided lengthways into two compartments, and that there was some kind of creature in each. They were rats.

    “In your case,” said O’Brien, “the worst thing in the world happens to be rats.”

    A sort of premonitory tremor, a fear of he was not certain what, had passed through Winston as soon as he caught his first glimpse of the cage. But at this moment the meaning of the mask-like attachment in front of it suddenly sank into him. His bowels seemed to turn to water.”

    How well we all know that latter feeling after an undercooked hotpot or rogue dimsum. I hope you all had the good sense to cook at home this weekend.

    Poor Vag…afraid of slinking off into obscurity while unbeknownst to her, she already has.

  4. Regina Ip says:

    Interesting that VagIp uses quotes around the word brainwashing, as if she herself doesn’t believe it.

    In the direct quotations of one of Mr Tang’s predecessors, your name sake does not use quotation marks. It is only the report of her comments that puts “brainwash” in quotation marks.

    Do not doubt the sincerely of the Exco convenor.

    Yesterday I was sitting in the lounge of the gym after my workout. The big screen in front of me showed an interview with Vagina Ip. Thankfully the TV was mute, so I could only see her mouth her patriotic obscenities. PR Tip of the Day: don’t allow a TV camera to shoot a close up of your face when you are 70+. Have mercy on your audience: the Broomhead coiffure has transformed into a too long and too black hairdo that some people call the “Wellcome cassiere” look. Dear Vagina, you were never pretty. Now you simply look nasty, especially when you are spouting your anti-democracy venom. I don’t want to get personal (please, no) but you do have a striking resemblance, at this age, to those mainland hookers one can find on street corners in Portland Street, Yau Ma Tei. I have been told that they charge $ 200- if you are a reasonably good looking gwai lo.
