  • Conservative commentator Mark Steyn lamented the crackdown in Hong Kong, saying it is part of the Communist Chinese government’s continued attack on truth, citing the Party’s attempts to silence anyone sounding the alarm on COVID-19. 
  • The Wall Street Journal detailed the repressive tactics Chinese security officials used against a group that fought to keep the Pillar of Shame statue in place, jailing leaders for “not agreeing to hand over information” about the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China. 
  • Breitbart noted Communist China’s “brutal” erasure of the Tiananmen Square massacre in Hong Kong is part of the Party “breaking those promises of autonomy” when the United Kingdom transferred the city to China.
