Patrick Madrid ✌🏼@patrickmadridApr 9What the?? This video taken yesterday in Shanghai, China, by the father of a close friend of mine. She verified its authenticity: People screaming out of their windows after a week of total lockdown, no leaving your apartment for any reason.
Fucking insane, but then again this is the definition of full retard leftoid. The shanghai quarantine center vid looks like squid game. Never go full retard
Could be an experiment in urban compliance and political terrorism i.e. just how far can you impose the tyranny on a large population before they reach the breaking point and just swarm the authorities?
The Chinese are probably the last culture on earth to do what you are suggestingAdditionally the Chinese government doesn’t fuck around, so you have to be ready for the repercussions.
Understood To your point, there’s 26M people there. That would be a powerful resistance if enough would agree to do it.
Lockdown was never about a virus. It was about sending a message: That stripped of all disguise, the illusion of virtue, competence, and commitment to human rights among the western political class was nothing but conformity with easily-subvertible norms and institutions passed down by prior generations. Since the original egalitarian propagaganda of communism no longer fooled most people, the system had to be rebooted with a new lie that would justify the indefinite suspension of the rule of law. Xi had found it in the form of a “virus.” ...By late February, after western media outlets had spent weeks chiding China for their harsh authoritarian measures, their officials had figured out that SARS-2 wasn’t that bad. The risk at that point was that no other countries would do very much about SARS-2, and they’d be none the worse for it. So, to save face, China needed the WHO to endorse their lockdown at the very least; ideally, some Western nations would even imitate their approach. The Chinese pulled what strings they had, even providing secret advice to western public health officials and social media cover for their politicians.

Lockdown ideology remains a widespread global plague upon humanityFaucism infects Shanghai
I have been speaking to my colleagues in Shanghai. It’s definitely bad over there. They have to get PCR test everyday, not allowed to leave, one of the guys had their front door taped shut, one guy was forced to a field hospital where the condition was very bad.Yes, pets are killed, and all the bad stuff you are reading about. Still I think 99.9% of 25M in SH are surviving. Most are able to get food delivered at a high cost.In summary, China is a tough place to live. Somehow it’s all tied to politics.
Aaron Ginn@aginnt52mAs new lockdowns are announced, the Chinese people try to flee before the COVID police arrive.
bout 373 million people in 45 cities were living under some form of lockdown in China last month, according to an estimate from the Japanese financial services conglomerate Nomura Holdings. That’s more than three-quarters of the entire EU population (448 million) and the entire US population (330 million). A quarter of the Chinese population now lives in locked-down cities in response to China’s worst covid outbreak since the start of the pandemic.
China’s Wealthy Elite Are Fleeing The Country Thanks To CCP’s ‘Zero-COVID’ PolicyMany of China’s wealthiest citizens have increasingly sought to emigrate from the country in recent months as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has instituted some of the world’s strictest lockdowns as part of its “Zero-COVID” policy.Roughly 13,000 high net worth individuals plan to leave China and Hong Kong within the next year and are poised to bring roughly $60 billion in total assets with them, according to a report from investment migration consultancy firm Henley & Partners. The large-scale exodus comes partly as a result of Chinese President Xi Jinping’s particularly aggressive “zero-COVID” policy, according to Fortune, in which regions with elevated positivity rates have been placed under strict lockdowns that have led to food shortages and riots and COVID patients have been forced to wear electronic monitoring ankle bracelets.

Roughly 13,000 high net worth individuals plan to leave China and Hong Kong within the next year and are poised to bring roughly $60 billion in total assets with them,I smell a rat. More likely that $60 is a diaspora to buy up assets in the West for future control. If the CCP did not want high net worth people to leave, it would confiscate their assets.
