This is what democracy looks like
Last weekend, Antifa protestors tried to shut down CPAC.
They chanted “this is what democracy looks like”.
They were wrong, of course. This is what democracy looks like. And it sounds magnificent.
More than thousand HKers sing Les Miserables' 'Do you hear the people sing?' at HK international airport with their calls for free election and democracy. Here is the Ground Zero in the war against authoritarian rule. That's the reason for us never surrender. pic.twitter.com/1MkTp4BkVg

And this is what gutlessness looks like
The Company apologizes for the design of its product and a recall of the t-shirt has been implemented in July. The brand accepts accountability and is exploring actions to improve how we operate day-to-day to become more conscientious and aware. pic.twitter.com/5K8u3c4Dbm

Yang Mi has quit Versace, saying that one of the brand's T-shirts broke Beijing's "one China" policy. The company, and designer Donatella Versace, have both since apologized for the "unfortunate" error. https://t.co/zfhhPd5tBI

If you’re a Jew, leave Europe now
Europe has forgotten its shameful history with the Jews. How else can this be explained?
The European Union is poised to mandate that Israeli products made in contested territories carry consumer warning labels, a decision that could trigger American anti-boycott laws and open up what legal experts describe as a “Pandora’s box” of litigation, according to multiple sources involved in the legal dispute who spoke to the Washington Free Beacon.
The Advocate General of the European Court of Justice recently issued non-binding opinion arguing that EU law requires Israeli-made products to be labeled as coming from “settlements” and “Israeli colonies.”
Will they be using yellow stars? Shameful. Disgusting. Disgraceful.
That giant sucking sound …
Scott Morrison will announce $500 million in climate change funding when he meets regional leaders in Tuvalu this week, in a bid to rescue his Pacific “step-up” from mounting anger over Australia’s domestic emissions policies.
The funding will be used to protect communities and infrastructure from rising seas and worsening storms, help nations recover after natural disasters and ensure local health services are better equipped to respond to changing needs.
The package will provide $500 million in funds over five years from next year and is aimed at encouraging Pacific nations to invest in renewable energy as well as climate and disaster resilience.
There doesn’t seem to be much gratitude. Maybe $500 million doesn’t buy as much as it should these days:
Small Pacific Island states have declared Scott Morrison’s $500 million commitment to regional climate change resilience measures doesn’t excuse Australia from doing the “right thing” on cutting carbon emissions.
By the way … Tuvalu isn’t sinking. Even the ABC has to admit it. And admit that Craig Kelly was right.
