It bears repeating that the United States is currently embroiled in the worst pandemic since 1917, the worst economic crisis since 1929, and the worst civil unrest since the 1960s. It’s important to say it, to remember it, and to let it guide you when you enter the ballot box in November. Donald Trump has massively failed the country. It’s long past time for him to go.
Clinton’s reference to Tianamen Square is a direct rebuke of Trump’s orders that tear gas and rubber bullets be used to clear the area in front of the White House so that he could have a photo-op. Images from that event are reminiscent of the Tiananmen Square massacre’s beginnings when, in 1989, the Chinese government began lashing out at protesters.
‘In May 1989, nearly a million Chinese, mostly young students, crowded into central Beijing to protest for greater democracy and call for the resignations of Chinese Communist Party leaders deemed too repressive. For nearly three weeks, the protesters kept up daily vigils, and marched and chanted. Western reporters captured much of the drama for television and newspaper audiences in the United States and Europe.’
In response to those protests, the Chinese government used their military to fire at protesters. Law enforcement and members of the military had been previously unable to control the growing crowd of protesters, so military action was taken against them.
Is any of this sounding familiar?
