Mad as Hell: Hong Kongers Screaming Out of Apartment Blocks Every Night at 10pm

They’re not gonna take it anymore.

Hong Kongers are imitating Howard Beale’s infamous Network stunt by screaming in unison out of their apartment windows at 10pm every night.

In the 1976 movie, the ranting TV news host encouraged his viewers to stick their heads out of their windows and yell, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore.”

Hong Kong protesters, who have embraced many western tropes, have been engaging in what they call the “Million Scream” for the past three weeks, during which they scream protest slogans from their high rise homes.

“When the clock strikes the hour, a chorus of cries can be heard reverberating across districts, with slogans popularised by pro-democracy protesters — including “five demands, not one fewer” and “Hongkongers, add oil” — echoing between high-rises,” reports the Hong Kong Free Press.

One clip shows two students from secondary schools in Kwai Tsing shouting to each other, “Liberate Hong Kong, the revolution of our times!”

Another clip shows residents in the Tai Koo Shing neighborhood shouting, “add oil” and “HK people.”

A third clip shows similar slogans being shouted out of huge apartment blocks in Fanling.

Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s announcement that she would withdraw the extradition bill that sparked the protests was met with scorn by the ‘screamers’ – who want all five of their protest demands met.

The stunt illustrates how Hong Kongers see their resistance to Chinese rule not just as an occasional protest activity, but as an intrinsic part of their daily lives.

“I think shouting can boost morale among protesters… [They] can feel trust and support within their community,” said 35-year-old teacher Ms Lee. “I felt very touched and supported when I first shouted and my neighbours responded to me, though I couldn’t locate them. So I continue to do it.”

Howard Beale would have been proud.

Greta ‘Put Them Against The Wall’ Thunberg Nominated For Nobel Peace Prize

Climate alarmist’s nomination triggers backlash

17-year-old Climate alarmist Greta Thunburg has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, prompting the internet to attempt to re-balance the scales of sanity back from bat-shit-crazy.

Thunberg has been nominated for the 2020 prize by two leftist Swedish lawmakers, Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, according to reports.

The pair argued that Greta “has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.” and that her efforts have contributed to “reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement.”

The liberal politicians claim that this is “therefore also an act of making peace.”

Greta’s antics of skipping school to fly and motor boat all over the planet lecturing everyone about carbon emissions, while cameras follow her every move, and her dad writes her social media posts, earned her a TIME Magazine person of the year award in 2019.

Thunberg never made it over to China or India, however, where the world’s worst environmental impact is emanating from. instead, she opted to scowl at President Trump and threatened to put Western leaders “against the wall”.

The news of the Nobel nomination for Greta, was met with… shall we say ‘skepticism’:

And then there’s this…

Okaaaaaay.

W.H.O. Demands ‘Gratitude And Respect’ For Chinese Dictator’s Coronavirus Response

Bizarre comments from Director-General as it becomes clear Communists have lied about scale of global pandemic

The World Health Organisation asked Thursday that China be shown “gratitude and respect” for its handling of the deadly novel coronavirus, despite the the widespread belief among health experts and government officials that the Communist state has been covering up the true scale of the outbreak to save face.

After meeting with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared that China needs to be applauded for the “extraordinary steps it has taken to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus.”

“China is implementing very serious measures and we cannot ask for more,” Ghebreyesus said, adding “I was very encouraged and impressed by the president’s detailed knowledge of the outbreak and his personal involvement in the outbreak,”

“This was for me a very rare leadership,” Ghebreyesus proclaimed, as the WHO declared the outbreak to be an international health emergency.

Ghebreyesus, a former Ethiopian health minister, also bizarrely praised China’s “transparency,” stating that “China has been completely committed to transparency, both internally and externally, and has agreed to work with other countries that need support.”

The fawning continued as the Director-General urged that “The level of commitment in China is incredible; I will praise China again and again, because its actions actually helped in reducing the spread of the novel coronavirus to other countries … we shall tell the truth and that’s the truth.”

It’s a version of ‘truth’ that not even the Wall Street Journal is on board with, however, given that it has documented how the reality of the situation is being suppressed.

According to the Chinese government, there are now 9,692 confirmed coronavirus cases in China, and the official death toll has risen to 213.

The real death toll appears to be much higher, however, given that those who have succumbed to “severe pneumonia” are not being classed as coronavirus deaths.

In addition, large numbers of victims are still being classified as “suspected cases” despite it being extremely obvious that they have the virus.

The true scale of the situation is not yet known, yet researchers at the University of Hong Kong have estimated that there could be 44,000 victims already.

A model that predicts the number of coronavirus infections that will occur if the outbreak isn’t contained shows that based on current projections, there will be over 183 million infections before the end of February.

Whatever the case, it is quite clear that the Chinese authorities have been anything but transparent, thus it is completely backwards for the World Health Organisation to demand the country’s leaders be afforded any ‘gratitude and respect’.
