Trump wants to win.

On November 3, the United States will vote for a new president and legislators, which is believed to be the most watched election ever in the history of Hong Kong, as well as the global Chinese community. I am not interested in analyzing Trump’s destruction of democracy or right-wing fascism, just why Biden’s election is a disaster from the perspective of Hong Kong’s interests.

The root cause of Hong Kong’s reduction to one country, one system and loss of autonomy today is the Chinese Communist Party’s failure to keep its promises, whether in the Joint Declaration or the Basic Law, and also at the practical level, using the Liaison Office to control the various levels of autonomy in Hong Kong. Did this start with Xi Jinping’s arrival in 2012? No, it started with Hu Jintao’s second General Secretary after the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Originally, on the Hong Kong issue, the United States was not the stakeholder, Britain was. We were governed by Britain for more than a hundred years, and then we were handed back to the Chinese Communist Party, when both sides promised to adopt the “one country, two systems” approach of Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong as a condition for the transfer of sovereignty. Hong Kong’s autonomy and international status had already existed under British rule, and was not created out of thin air by the Basic Law. At that time, Britain betrayed the people of Hong Kong and quietly amended the nationality law to deprive Hong Kong people of their right of abode.

Britain betrayed the people of Hong Kong back then.

Engagement Policy is not patented by the US pro-Chinese Kissinger, it was the mainstream in the West in the 7 and 80s, and was also the slogan of a group of China-passers under the rule of Mrs. Dechauer, Coleda, Yoder, and Wilson, Hong Kong fell into such a state, starting from the time Sir Coleda took charge of Hong Kong affairs. Believing not to anger the Chinese Communist Party, Collida said to Lee Chu-ming, “We have only one test tube, we can’t do the experiment twice.” So Britain acquiesced in the CCP’s meddling in the development of democracy in Hong Kong before 1997, vetoed the introduction of direct elections in 1988, slowed down the pace of direct elections in 1991, and only implemented the Patten proposal in 1995, when it was too late. If the British side had taken the risk to introduce direct elections four years earlier in 1988, half of the seats would have been returned by direct elections in 1991, and it would not have been easy for the Chinese side to overturn everything and start all over again in 1997. Unfortunately, there is no “if” in history.

Chris Patten, who came to Hong Kong in 1992, acted just like Trump, ignoring the established policy of “China Connection” of the British Foreign Office, ignoring the under-the-table deal between Foreign Minister Han Da-de and Qian Qichen, and putting forward a political reform proposal with “three violations”, and finally the Sino-British transition in the Legislative Council. No agreement was reached on the issue, but Chris Patten succeeded in empowering the people of Hong Kong and continued the struggle after 1997. On that day, we watched him recite a poem by Jack London: “Better to be ashes than dust”. Today, apart from Chris Patten, who else has come forward to support Hong Kong and campaign for BNO affirmative action? The British Engagement Policy betrayed the people of Hong Kong before and after 1997, and after 1997, they patted themselves on the back and left it at that. For the past 23 years, Hong Kong has been the exclusive domain of the Chinese Communist Party, and no foreign countries are allowed to interfere. In the past 20 years, the US Consulate in Hong Kong has submitted annual reports to the Assistant Secretary of State for Asia and the Pacific as required by the Hong Kong Relations Act of 1992, and every year they consider that the high degree of autonomy of one country, two systems has been successfully implemented.

The rapid collapse of Hong Kong’s high degree of autonomy occurred in 2012, when Leung Chun-ying took office, and Obama and Biden were the presidents and vice-presidents of the United States at that time. Today, Biden supporters tell us that a tough stance on China is a bipartisan consensus that will not be rolled back from Trump’s policies. In fact, with or without the Hunter Biden scandal, these “China-knowledgeers” from Obama’s foreign affairs think tank and State Department bureaucrats who are back in power will only continue the “press release law of restraint” or “eye contact” during his tenure. Defense”, the CCP has learned “Obama’s return to the Asia-Pacific”, is it still afraid? Hong Kong has already died once at the hands of British management policy, or has the chance to die again at the hands of the US. Once Biden is elected, let the tiger go!
