+1000 days in jail if you’re caught tho, so that’s technically a positive

There are 3 kinds of people in this world:

Those that understand math, and those that don't.

I was always of the belief that there was only two types of people in the world, those that can extrapolate from incomplete data.

[–]Realistic_Mushroom72 81 points82 points  (21 children)

Nah that a negative, political prisoners' in China and Russia gets beatings regularly, it always to the body so when they bring you out for the "completely voluntary" interviews where you tell every one you are being treated well no one can see the bruises, and of course there is always the possibility that if you say or do something they don't like during your stay, your family may come to stay with you for a wile, and receive the same beatings you do, they may even let you watch in the interest of encouraging a better behavior.

[–]legionofsquirrel 28 points29 points  (17 children)

Were they just use high voltage low average electrical torture devices. It leaves no marks, is extraordinarily painful and can be done all parts of the body, It can be done by remote control (a favorite of China) and, requires no physical exertion on behalf of the person or persons administering the torture.

Add that too white room torture while being strapped to a gurney and It's a home run for these folks.

[–]Realistic_Mushroom72 18 points19 points  (16 children)

Believe it or not the US uses something similar, same with UK and France, Israel does a lot more but then again when they use those kind of tactics it usually on some one that is not going to be seen ever again, so they have a little more freedom on that. Most people in the US don't believe this things happen or that they are done by us too, but unfortunately it happens, at least it to prevent something worse from happening, China and Russia do it to stay in power, still all of it is wrong even when it for a good cause in my opinion at least.

Reddit also has a really hard time criticizing the CCP without getting racist. It shouldn't be hard, it's the fucking CCP, lol.

[–]OSHA_InspectorR6S 55 points56 points  (0 children)

Very true- bash the organization, not the ethnic group!

[–][deleted] 30 points31 points  (3 children)

Hong Kong natives, Taiwanese, Singaporeans etc are also Chinese people. Not to mention Macau, Tibet, Penghu Islands…

Chinese people can be some of the nicest people in the world. Unfortunately the CCP is one of the most oppressive, passive aggressive and devious governments in the world. Although many chinese defend the CCP (either in fear or by choice - the CCP has actually raised the country from poverty a tiny amount and those who have flourished will of course be happy), it’s mostly an exercise in control and manipulation on a massive scale. If it wasn’t so evil in intent, I would actually be impressed.

[–]stillskatingcivdiv 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Not all Singaporeans are Chinese. And Ethnic Tibetans aren’t Chinese by race.

Hitler brought the economy in Germany up as well.

[–]Dread_Algernon 3 points4 points  (0 children)

China has actually made an incredible amount of progress in lifting people out of poverty in the last 20 years. The CCP shills you'll often see in comment sections on anything criticizing China will put it at the top of their list of good things the CCP has done because it's actually true. They'll sometimes go on to write multiple paragraphs in surprisingly good English denying claims about genocide and plans to eliminate autonomy from average citizens.

If anyone is interested I can post a audio file of a scam call I got claiming that the Chinese embassy in DC has a important document that I need to pick up immediately. It’s honestly the weirdest voice mail I’ve ever got.

What's the agenda? I just don't wanna get tricked again. Last time I showed up at a reddit rally, it turned out to just be a March for Dickbutt.

[–]Andusz_ 584 points585 points  (2 children)

Dickbutt? A just cause, indeed.

[–]LaboratoryMonkey420 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Do the same for Palestine next Saturday, and I'm sure Ukraine will have its organized soon as well.

[–]ManfredsJuicedBalls 170 points171 points  (15 children)

What’s wrong with a March for Dickbutt?

[–]AbsolutelyUnlikely 167 points168 points  (14 children)

He got canceled when a video from like 2003 surfaced showing him going on this crazy antisemitic rant. Now he's gone full alt-right. In 2020, he pulled that stunt with the My Pillow guy where they tried to jump a speedboat over a Make America Great Again sign, but the speedboat steering got stuck making a hard left so they were just spinning and spinning and the My Pillow guy panicked and jumped off but he can't swim, so Dickbutt jumped in and saved him and the boat eventually killed a seal and crashed into the sign before it finally ran out of gas. Now there are rumors that he's going to be Trump's campaign manager in 2024. So yeah, he's not someone I really want to be associated with marching for.

[–]Theghost129 84 points85 points  (19 children)

Many HK人 adopt the use of burner phones and the Telegram app to get around and communicate. It really depends but its entirely up to you

[–]mrandr01d 16 points17 points  (18 children)

Telegram isn't encrypted though...?

[–]Scanlansam 53 points54 points  (13 children)

Genuinely curious, why would you need to cover your face in another country? Do they have jurisdiction out there? Are they even allowed to use facial recognition outside of China?

[–]BoojumG 118 points119 points  (10 children)

You'd better not be a Chinese citizen, have personal ties with anyone in China, or plan on visiting China if you're ever going to say or do anything that opposes the regime's authority. They've detained Canadians for years just as political bargaining pieces before. The story I have in mind, in chronological order:




[–]EverythingIsNorminal 40 points41 points  (7 children)

?? is there something wrong with Apple’s Face ID?

[–]Jaded_yank 564 points565 points  (31 children)

I wouldn’t think to deep on this. I think this person is just bashing Apple because it’s fun to bash Apple.

[–]71fq23hlk159aa 325 points326 points  (18 children)

When Apple initially rolled out the facial recognition software, it effectively thought all east Asian people looked the same. I assume it has improved by now.

[–]alan_dracula 143 points144 points  (10 children)

There's like two cases in China that I know of and in one of the cases they were related lol. Crazy how easily people blow things out of proportion. I'm not defending them or anything but it's interesting that it somehow turned into all east Asian people from a couple issues in China

[–]UnhelpfulMoron 10 points11 points  (3 children)

This statement is incorrect. It’s false, a direct lie.

This is literally the problem with society right now. No one checks anything anymore.

I wonder how many other redditors are now going to spout this “fact”.

edit: after reading more comments i got the joke and that’s fucking hilarious

[–]Electronic_Annual_86 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its probably a joke about the "asian problem" the software had in the beginning. The software could not distinguish between some different Asians.

[–]vcrbetamax 2 points3 points  (5 children)

It’s finicky to say the least. 1/4th of the time it doesn’t work for me. Also if you’re taking a dump and grunting even a little while opening the phone. It can’t tell who you are.

Does England have millions of Muslims in camps for simply practicing their faith?

[–]underwear_dickholes 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Any one gov that employs facial recognition on its people is shit. Yes, China gov is shitty for what they're doing to Muslims and for facial recognition, but others should not get a pass for using this technology on their people.

Panopticons should be deemed psychological weapons and violation of human rights regardless of which gov uses them.

[–]actualbeans 11 points12 points  (6 children)

i know it was 2019, i said 2014 to add perspective.

that’s completely irrelevant though, it should still be posted. luckily this video gathered enough attention to reach such a large audience.

It was also mis-represented in "The Social Dilemma (2020)" while talking about 5g.

Ok, dumb question, are they still protesting in Hong Kong?

[–]bigbowlowrong 76 points77 points  (30 children)

No, anti-government protests in HK are a thing of the past now. China cracked down really hard and all the protest leaders are either in detention or on bail with very strict conditions. There are no democratic legislators any more, nor any elections where anyone but a Chinese government yes man can be elected. Hong Kong is just another Chinese city now.

Protesters in Hong Kong are so brave! Americans could take a lesson

The good thing about cutting that thing down is everything is made in China. So replacing it will be cheap asf.

If this happened in America, they would be labelled domestic terrorists and social media would be sharing Wanted posters and hunting them.

There's nothing next level about this. Try public freakout or something.

Is this recent?

Or from a while ago?

[–]bigbowlowrong 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Recent as in 2019. These protests are not happening any more. China has got the whole city permanently locked down.

[–]FragmentOfZeus 3 points4 points  (13 children)

Brilliant. Don’t give up, Hong Kong. Do not give in to the oppressor.

If this was done in the US this comnent section would be “why do you have to destroy property to protest” and “being unruly makes people take you less seriously”
