Tiananmen Square Massacre Memorials Being Removed From Universities in Hong Kong

“Early on Friday morning, the Chinese University of Hong Kong took down the Goddess of Democracy”

Thank goodness nothing like this would ever happen here in America.

More Hong Kong universities remove Tiananmen Square massacre memorials

More universities in Hong Kong have removed memorials commemorating those who died in the Tiananmen Square massacre.

Early on Friday morning, the Chinese University of Hong Kong took down the Goddess of Democracy, a statue based on a figure created by art students that was brought to Tiananmen Square in Beijing shortly before the 1989 crackdown.

Hundreds of pro-democracy protesters were said to have been killed by Chinese troops in the 4 June crackdown on China’s pro-democracy movement in the late 1980s, but it is thought the real figure reaches the thousands.

The statue is the latest Tiananmen Square memorial to be removed in Hong Kong, with a monument at the University of Hong Kong – the Pillar of Shame – cut up and removed the night before after being installed in 1997.

Lingnan University also removed a bas relief memorial wall display.

The university said it did so because of the “overall protection of the university community after a recent assessment”, according to the government-run Radio Television Hong Kong.

The Chinese University said the statue removed on Friday had never been authorised and no organisation has claimed responsibility for its maintenance and management.

The first move for dictators is to revise history to make themselves look good. That means removing statues and historical monuments and changing the books used in schools. That’s what China is doing.

It’s also what the leftists in the US are doing. They are removing statues of Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, Roosevelt, and all the missionaries and pioneers. They are defacing and removing historical monuments, and they are forcing school students to read books that emphasize left-wing politics and CRT.

Stick a fork in Hong Kong. Let’s go, Brandon.
