Hu Xijin is editor of the Global Times, a Chinese state newspaper, and he likes to troll Americans. He seems upset that Hong Kong activist Nathan Law was invited by President Joe Biden to speak at the State Department’s Summit for Democracy.
I am very honored to announce that I am invited by @POTUS to deliver a remark in The Summit for Democracy on 10th Dec.
The remark serves as a bridge between sessions on "protecting human rights" and "defending against authoritarianism." The voice of Hong Kong will be heard. pic.twitter.com/6sjmXmdrrb

To discredit Law, Xijin is portraying him as Hong Kong’s counterpart to the QAnon Shaman, Jacob Chansley, who was recently sentenced to 41 months in prison for his part in the storming of the Capitol. What do you think of that, patriotic Americans?
Jacob Chansley, known as “QAnon Shaman”, was jailed for his role in the January 6 Capitol riot, but his counterpart of Hong Kong was invited by Biden to speak at the democracy summit. Hypocrisy? Patriotic Americans, what do you think? https://t.co/0YNSX9KVhW pic.twitter.com/BL2JrenrZq

Can you spend some decent amount of money to find someone who knows photoshop?

Photoshopped propaganda. This is a new low for CCP.
It’s not even remotely the same thing. But CCP logic be CCP logic I suppose.

You’re bad at propaganda.

Are you guys still eating bats ?

Your argument makes no sense: QAnon Shaman Jacob Chansley was trying to stop democracy, Nathan Law is trying to stop democracy being snuffed out.

The American guy gets a trial. You'd like to see the HK guy disappeared.

Hypocrisy is when the CCP ban western media in China, saying they’ll spread lies, then themselves post misleading false equivalences on Twitter, a platform which is banned in China.

Wow you're so desperate. Why #Twitter is still allowing CCP to infiltrate this platform?

Given the high salary you draw from the PRC government vs the low quality stuff you consistently put out, you're the ultimate champion at subverting the CCP regime.

What do I think? I think you're a soulless, craven apologist for a regime that's currently engaged in the worst human rights crimes on the planet. Thanks for asking.

“Patriotic Americans” aren’t buying it.
