Umbrella Movement Leaders Convicted

This is your reminder that China is still a communist regime.

Nine pro-democracy activists in Hong Kong have been found guilty of public nuisance charges for their role in a civil disobedience movement that called for free elections in the city.

Among them are three prominent activists, seen as figureheads of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.

They could be jailed for up to seven years for their part in the “Umbrella Movement” protests of 2014.

Thousands marched demanding the right for Hong Kong to choose its own leader.

Those convicted include the so-called “Occupy trio” – sociology professor Chan Kin-man, 60, law professor Benny Tai, 54, and Baptist minister Chu Yiu-ming, 75.

    Liberals cheer.

    This is what their ideology looks like in full practice.

    Kevin, show me a “liberal” who is cheering about this.  I assume you mean in the USA.

    For extra credit, show me a statement from Trump that would seem to indicate he’d like more opportunities to punish people who oppose him.
