In a stark reality check for online gamers in America, Activision Blizzard has suspended professional Hearthstone player Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai for a show of support for the protests in Hong Kong. Blitzchung was accused of breaking tournament rules and was originally suspended for 1 year, removed from the Grandmasters and lost all his prize money. And they also fired the 2 newscasters that hosted Blitzchung’s protest. This was considered extremely heavy-handed by the online community who saw it as an attack on free speech by Activision Blizzard. However, following a massive outcry on social media, that saw the hashtag BoycottBlizzard trending on Twitter, Blizzard has decided to reduce his ban to 6 months and return all of his prize money.

This was after a Blizzard representative contacted Blitzchung to talk about the situation, after which Blizzard decided to reduce the ban and return his prize money. Blitzchung responded to Blizzard’s overnight statement, saying “In the future, I will be more careful,” and said he was “grateful” the company had reduced his ban from one year to six months. “To be honest six months is too long for me.” Then: “I wish Blizzard would reconsider the penalty of the two casters.”

Also, the NBA found themselves in hot water with China following the general manager of the Houston Rockets, Daryl Morey, publishing a tweet voicing his support for Hong Kong protestors. The tweet included an image bearing the words: “Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong.” Chinese companies that partner with the NBA responded by suspending their ties to the league, worth $4 billion. China’s consulate general in Houston urged the NBA to “correct the mistake”.

The NBA caved almost immediately by saying it regretted Mr. Morey’s remarks and he did not represent the league or the Rockets. “We are extremely disappointed in the inappropriate remarks made by Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey.”  Daryl Morey was also forced to apologize saying he’d had a chance to “hear and consider other perspectives” in Hong Kong since his original post. The NBA also started to kick fans out of pre-season games for bringing along signs supportive of the Hong Kong protesters. 

The protests in Hong Kong sparked following a new ruling that would allow the extradition of criminals from Hong Kong to mainland China in clear violation of the agreement in 1997 when China regained Hong Kong from the UK. The heavy-handed approach of the Hong Kong police was very reminiscent of the treatment of the Yellow-vest protests in France, with Macron’s riot police maiming and beating dissidents in protests that have lasted nearly a year. 

This all comes at a time when Trump’s United States is embroiled in a vicious trade war with China. With the battle for 5G worldwide likely hinging on the outcome of the problems in Hong Kong. Trump has heavily sanctioned Chinese telecommunications company Huawei, in favor of the sale of Straight Path to Verizon that gave Armis (Mossad) a monopoly on 5G in the U.S, which also removed the opposition to nationalize 5G. The American-Israeli IDT Corporation certainly stands to profit from a negative outcome in Hong Kong and or China.

Gamers, furious with Blizzard's capitulation to China have decided to use Overwatch character Mei in memes and political posters as a symbol of the Hong Kong protests. This was in no small part due to the activism of former Blizzard producer Mark Kern, who worked on games like vanilla World of Warcraft, Diablo 2 and Starcraft.

  1. It’s wrong to say that “China regained Hong Kong from the UK”.

    The British Empire won control of Hong Kong from the Qing Dynasty of Imperial China. That dynasty fell, the imperial system itself was destroyed by Chinese nationalists, the Japanese took control of substantial parts of China (including Hong Kong), and only after that did the communist rebels take control of most of China. The communists never owned nor had any claim over Hong Kong before 1997. They are not “China” and they did not “regain” anything. The communists took Hong Kong for the first time in 1997.

    That the United Kingdom was essentially obliged to give away Hong Kong and betray Hong Kongers was a direct result of deliberate American foreign policy, but I suppose that’s beside the point.

  2. Suppose that corporations think no one will ever take their right to free speech seriously, when you start tucking with people rights its a bit of a drastic fucking situation as it impacts our lives all over the world. China / hong kong may actually get violent over the protests there.

  3. This was happening in Taipei? Then China was in the right to use its economic muscle to try and shut up a troublemaker in a liberal-democratic separatist province. The US should just abandon Taiwan so China can whack that GloboHomo island regime like a hand brushing over a house of cards.
    The NBA thing was a major whitepill. Contrary to experience in the West, this showed that Chinese businesses are run by patriots, who immediately severed financial ties when an issue of national sovereignty was at stake. One company, Luckin Coffee, I looked into and am investing in. Founded in 2017, Luckin has over 3,000 locations in China, and is aiming to rival Jewish-run Starbucks. We often think of Starbuck’s, like McDonald’s and Coca-Cola, as brands destined to pockmark the world until Kingdom come, but another possibility, now happening in “Red” China, is national chains replacing the global ones, which may shrink or go out of business as patriots spend so their RMB don’t go overseas to line the pockets of Wall Streeters who hate them. And we should cheer that, and begin to expect the same of our businesses.
    We should NOT merely, tepidly aim for businesses to respect our “rights” to speak, but demand they serve the national interest at all times, hound them when they don’t.

    1. Idiot. Stop listening to midwits like Striker and realize what China is doing. Yes they have a nationalistic policy regarding business, but they are just as expansionist and subversive as Israel, and use this nationalistic policy as a way to con free trade retards into financing their expansion. They want us bent to their will, a world subservient to the Han and even moreso to the CCP. Do not support these people. Instead, focus on things that would benefit us. I think we can take what China does and apply it to the West without feeling the need to fawn and invest over a country and people that despise us and want to see us under heel.
