Communist China Borrows a page from Pelosi’s Playbook – Will No Longer Seat All Democratically Elected Officials in Hong Kong Legislature

Last week Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi told reporters she can refuse to seat members of Congress if she wants to. Pelosi and the Democrats are currently working to unseat the winner of the Iowa 2nd district race.

This is something never seen before in US history.
Pelosi doesn’t care. She’s boss.
The liberal media doesn’t care. They agree.

On Tuesday Communist China followed Nancy Pelosi’s lead and significantly reduced the number of elected seats in the Hong Kong leglislature.

The new communist-approved legislature will have 20 elected seats instead of 30 elected seats.

Just The News reported:

China on Tuesday significantly reduced the number of elected seats in the Hong Kong legislature, a move considered another effort by the Chinese Communist Party to limited the territory’s year’s-long democracy movement.

The Hong Kong legislature will be expanded to 90 seats, but only 20 of them will be filled by a public election, compared to the previous structure of 70 seats, with 30 filled by public election, according to the Associated Press.

The changes were announced after a two-day meeting of China’s top legislature.

“It’s a very sad day for Hong Kong,” said former lawmaker and Democratic Party member Emily Lau. “The election system is completely dismantled. They are going to get rid of opposition voices because, under this new system, which is so oppressive and restrictive.”
