Description

Part 1:

"Dems + Repubs are the knee on black American necks."


Phil analyses the recent fightback in the USA in reaction to the police killing of George Floyd as an uprising against systemic racism towards black Americans. The Democrats and Republicans are the knee that's on the neck of black people in the USA. They have forgotten what the US Civil Rights movement taught Americans: black people were victims of systemic racism and something had to be done to rectify it. That something was affirmative action.

Part 2:

"Five Eyes lose an eye."


Phil notes that the Globe and Mail failed to indicate that New Zealand did not sign onto the "Five Eyes" statement expressing displeasure with China's new law regarding Hong Kong. He asks if the big ship of the Anglo-Saxon Empire is starting to list. It's a sign that, even in the closest embrace of the imperial centre, the allies are getting cold feet.

Traditional allies of the USA are worrying about the implications of Trump's continuing dismantling of treaties and international organizations, such as the World Health Organization. Cynically, Trump is blaming China and the WHO for his own pandemic failures. In fact, China did a fine job in breaking the chain of COVID-19 transmission. The WHO correctly lauded China's efforts and declared the spread of COVID-19 a pandemic.

The spineless reaction of the Trudeau government is simply to parrot the US line on Hong Kong and Taiwan, in support of Meng Wanzhou's arrest. The Canadian government should recognize that the "bully" is the US, not China.
