not sure this is news-worthy, but it’s certainly dumb and crazy

I can only guess his goal is to siphon black voters from Biden in order to help Trump.


#340

I mean we are talking about Kanye West here. If it were any other personality like The Rock, yeah it’d be crazy to think of, but Trump and Reagan (I think) were entertainment personalities before becoming seriously involved in politics, so you never know.


#341

@M00 Yea, Reagan an actor, so maybe, but um… Not feeling it, unless he has political background no one has ever mentioned in a big way before.

Crazy and just a little bit scary news today


In short:
China has decided to pass a new law which makes it illegal to criticize China outside of China, in particular in regards to Hong Kong. Explicitly stated to apply globally.

This of course does not mean they will start issuing extradition requests to anyone and everyone and obviously doesn’t mean any other government would comply. But it does strengthen their position to squash dissent within media and entertainment companies desiring to do business in china and has given them even stronger justifications for moving against anyone who would produce anything which has anything critical to say about China. This also of course puts an even greater pressure on expatriate Chinese individuals, especially those with relatives still in the country.

Edit:
Turns out the US also now finally passed the order to cease differential treatment of Hong Kong, partly as a result of these laws being passed by China in Hong Kong. I haven’t managed to chrew through the whole executive order, but if you have a bigger appetite for legalese than me, have your fill:
