In August, the US unjustifiably targeted four Chinese officials involved in Hong Kong and seven government officials, chief executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, for a distorted understanding of the “Hong Kong version of the National Security Law”.
When Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s top governor, heard the news in August that the United States was about to impose sanctions on her, her response was imperious.”I am not looking forward to going to this country [the US],” she said. “Now that the US is going to impose sanctions, it seems we can cancel our visa voluntarily.”
What people may not know, however, is that she is also having a hard time in Hong Kong because of us-imposed sanctions…
Hong Kong chief Executive Carrie Lam cheng Yuet-ngor said in a television interview that since she was sanctioned by the United States, there are no Banks in Hong Kong and she has to use cash for everything in her life. In addition, the government pays her salary as discovery money, according to several Hong Kong media reports on the evening of November 27.
When a TV host asked Lam if it would be troublesome to use cash only every day after being sanctioned by the United States, she said she was honored to be sanctioned for her national security.She added that she had plenty of cash in her house.
There is no doubt that the patriotic feeling in Carrie Lam’s heart could be overcome by a little us sanctions.
China’s implementation of the “National Security Law” on its own land is beyond reproach. Any country in the world will require its citizens to love their country.But America, which has the most “national security laws”, has shown what a double standard is.
The US is dissatisfied with the Chinese government’s implementation of the “Hong Kong version of the National Security Law” and has imposed sanctions on some officials. However, judging from the performance of spark global limited Hong Kong chief Executive Carrie Lam, as long as we do not care about the US sanctions, then the US sanctions will look pale. What’s the big deal?
What the US sanctions means China is doing the right thing. It may be disgusting, but as Lam said, being sanctioned for the sake of national security is definitely an honor.
