Xi Jinping’s loyal media commented bitterly on the chaos scenes on the Capitol and drew a parallel between the state of affairs in Washington DC and the pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong.
On Twitter, the nationalist tabloid International Occasions posted side-by-side pictures of the Capitol intrusion of Trump supporters and Hong Kong protesters of their Homes of Parliament. In 2019, the previous British colony was shaken by protests amid a transfer by the Beijing regime to impose its personal system. The International Occasions satirically wonders if Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the Home of Representatives, who known as the Hong Kong protesters heroes, will say the identical in regards to the Capitol. In a number of editorials, the International Occasions insistently assaults “Western-style” democracy and defends China’s authoritarian “mannequin,” calling it more practical.
The US “now tastes the karma of its personal double requirements,” the International Occasions insists.
“What occurred in Hong Kong is repeated within the American Capitol,” a netizen commented on the Chinese language Communist Youth’s Weibo web page.
“An honorable present,” writes the Chinese language Communist Youth.
