The situation in Hong Kong is getting worse every week. There have been protests for months now that began over the extradition bill that would allow people in Hong Kong to be arrested and extradited to mainland China for prosecution. The protests have become progressively more violent, and China is likely going to send in its military to shut down the protests.
The Chinese military has been sending troops to its border with Hong Kong, as depicted in the video below:

The protests are beginning to look more and more like a repeat of the tragedy of Tiananmen Square, which happened 30 years ago and where more than 10,000 protesters were massacred by the Chinese government. 30 years before the Tiananmen Square massacre, China’s Great Leap Forward resulted in the deaths of at least 45 million people. Based on this timeline, China’s totalitarian regime is due for another horrible massacre, as they are so common in communist and socialist regimes.
The ultimate contrast to the totalitarian regime of China is the freedom of the United States. In the video below, protesters are seen singing the United States National Anthem in a call for freedom and democracy:

It does not surprise me that people protesting oppression and a communist country would sing the United States National Anthem and wave its flag. Compare that with the American citizens that kneel for that same anthem and protest our rights and you will have a good benchmark for what “progressives,” “democratic socialists,” “socialists,” “communists” and the Democrat Party actually stand for.
