For the CCP, the so-called “laws” are excuses for beating, detaining and persecuting. It is never a tool that restricts the use of force of the government like the civilized world. As Miles Guo has relentlessly reiterated, they rule the people by police, black force and cheats. The latest national security law is a good footnote for his observations.
The Wenweipo of Hong Kong, another mouthpiece of the CCP in the city, report that there had been militants who never give up their effort of undermining the stability of Hong Kong. The local police force thus suggested that anybody who is waving flags or slogans, shouting beats or speaking in the public about matters that are expressly or implicitly related to the demand for independence will be immediately arrested without prior warning. Those matters include issues over the independence of Taiwan.
No one can be certain about what is “implicitly” related? In the latest legislation passed by the CCP, there is no provision that draws that boundary of the scope of “national security”. It is up to CCP’s definition or preference. For instance, the demonstrators are merely exercising their rights of demonstration to demand their promised democracy peacefully. The CCP media outlets now smear these freedom-lovers and victims of broken promises as threats of national security.
The regime can now “lawfully” claim any action as a threat of national security to start the criminal proceedings by stopping, searching and arresting, or collecting information behind the curtain. In a nutshell, the CCP can intrude in any personal space in the name of protecting the Party, which is said to be the unchallengeable leader of China.
