Supporters calling for a universal pension scheme are considering holding a “public referendum” on the consultation document issued by the government on retirement protection.
Labour Party lawmaker Fernando Cheung Chiu-hung suggested this in a roundtable meeting jointly held by his party and Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
Cheung said the referendum could be conducted using the same civil referendum format that Occupy Central carried out in June by commissioning the University of Hong Kong and PolyU on a selection method for universal suffrage in the 2017 chief executive election.
Cheung said a referendum would be “the most effective way to assess public opinion.”
He added: “Although it does not have a binding motion, it could still give the government pressure.”
Wong Hung, who represents a group of 180 academics who support universal pension, said his group will consider Cheung’s suggestion.
“If resources allow, I do not see why there should not be a referendum for this. Retirement protection affects everyone,” Wong said.
Estimating that holding such a referendum would cost at least HK$50,000, Wong called for donations from social organizations and the public to make it possible.
“I am confident the public would be in favor of our proposal instead of the government’s,” Wong said.
Meanwhile, the Hong Kong Council of Social Service called on the government to increase the asset threshold for retirement protection to HK$1 million from the proposed HK$80,000, so that more than 80 percent of the elderly could be covered.
Its chief executive, Chua Hoi-wai, also a member of the Commission on Poverty, said: “It would cost around HK$5 billion to HK$6 billion more to include those who have assets under HK$1 million to be covered by a pension under the current government proposal. I think it is impossible for the government to say it does not have enough money, given the HK$30 billion budget giveaways it has handed out over the past nine years.”
Secretary for Labour and Welfare Matthew Cheung Kin-chung was surrounded by 10 League of Social Democrats members after leaving the City Forum.
He said the HK$80,000 threshold is only a simulated standard aimed at facilitating discussion and comparisons.
We know you’re all very excited for Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie, starring Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley, but comedian Margaret Cho has some bad news for you: There’s yellowface. Yes, it’s almost 2016, and it’s like we’re back to Mickey Rooney circa 1961 being really offensive inBreakfast at Tiffany’s. Scottish comedian Janette Tough makes a cameo appearance in the film as a male Japanese fashion designer named “Huki Muki” (that is not a real Japanese name) in an outfit that’s clearly a reference to the artist Yayoi Kusama. Cho was the first to point out this troubling bit of yellowface, writing on Twitter, “It’s hard enough to get into film and TV as a person of color – and when roles written for us are played by white actors – it’s an outrage.”

I’ve been seeing a lot of comments from men wondering why allowing homosexuals to marry in the United States in such a big deal. “Let them do what they want, it doesn’t affect us,” they say. I wish that was the case. Not only is the legalization of gay marriage a full frontal attack on heterosexual men, it is part of a larger war to remove legal rights and behaviors that you are currently able to enjoy without state or mob interference.
Legalizing gay marriage is one phase of a degenerate march to persecute heterosexuals, both legally and socially, while acclimating young children to the homosexual lifestyle. The Supreme Court ruling in June 2015 allowing gay marriage doesn’t affect your life one hour, one day, or one month after, but it is part of a long war that will eventually criminalize or socially forbid certain aspects of heterosexual behavior at the same time it over-sexualizes young children in order to introduce them to homosexuality. I absolutely guarantee that your life will be negatively affected from the fallout of this ruling within a 5-10 year timespan.
The reason for this is simple: the societal reorganization that is necessary to allow gay marriage automatically elevates homosexuals to a special class of citizenry. To hoist one class you must demote another, meaning that heterosexual men are by default the enemies and oppressors of homosexuals. It is a foregone conclusion that these oppressors, which includes both straight men and women, must be ordered to give tribute, benefits, and submission to the “victim” class. You will eventually kneel whether you like it or not.
Masculine and straight behavior will be more aggressively modified through social shaming and re-education in schools, where young boys will be enthusiastically taught the superiority of homosexual lifestyles and the shameful privilege of heterosexuals, especially concerning the types of relationships that lead to nuclear, stable families. In addition, straight men will be forced under the barrel of the state’s gun to pay taxes for the AIDS drugs of gays, their impulsive sex changes, their mental and medical treatments resulting from sleeping with hundreds of partners, and also the salaries of politicians that continue to vote against traditional family values and basic morality standards. Your tax money already goes to Planned Parenthood and pharmaceutical companies to sterilize the female population so what’s a few more billion more to empower gays to continue their bathhouse behavior?
I’m also certain that gays will be exempt from dystopian divorce laws. Men’s rights activists genuinely think that allowing gays to marry will somehow put the spotlight on straight men getting raped in courts by women, but nothing of the sort will happen. Instead, courts will use two separate books. Gay marriages will be dissolved in an equal manner right down the middle while straight men will continued to be screwed by the system. We’re already seeing this dual-book approach with yes-means-yes rape laws that are entirely focused on persecuting men for consensual sex while letting women off the hook for sleeping with drunk men (1, 2, 3). Theoretically, yes-means-yes laws should apply to women just as equally, but we all know it won’t, as any man who gets physically assaulted by a woman in public already knows how dangerous it is to fight back to defend himself. Due process was long ago eliminated to favor women, and now it will favor homosexuals.
The increasing limits on heterosexual free speech was clearly shown in my Berlin lecture this summer. I had to hide the venue until the day before to prevent the sort of left-wing censorship that a month later led to thousands of Canadians trying to ban me from the country. On the day of the Berlin lecture, one block away from the hotel, there was a massive gay pride parade where half-naked men under the influence of alcohol and drugs were dancing and humping each other like they were in a nightclub. They dressed up at least one midget as a gimp and put him on a leash. Their hypersexual displays was done out in the open, in full view of families who picked the wrong day to go for a walk in the city, while a group of forty men including myself had to conceal their own behavior and essentially hide in one room, even though the content of my entire speech was more family friendly that witnessing even one minute of the homo display.
Within all the work, school, or co-ed social groups you’re a member of, denigrating the nuclear family or masculinity will not get you ostracized or fired. You can make a comment about “toxic masculinity” at work and not get written up by human resources. You can make fun of “lame pick up artists” in your co-ed social circle and get pats on the back. But what happens if you say that homosexuals are degenerates who are spreading HIV to the general population? What happens if you say gay marriage is state-sponsored anal sex? What happens if you say that children should be raised in a nuclear family? You already know the answer. It won’t be long until you will be forced to declare your allegiance to the homosexual lifestyle to retain your job, to pretend that you’re a believer in social justice just to keep bread on the table.
Even more sinister than modifying our speech and behavior is that the homosexual agenda aims to convert children by sexualizing them at a young age. The media normalizes homosexuals as loving and lively characters by showing their lifestyles as exciting, adventurous, and fun instead of the disease-ridden cesspool of drugs and medical horrors that it really is. Millions of boys who grow up to experiment with “cool” anal sex thanks to the propaganda will grow up to lead sterile and disturbed lives because of it—if they’re lucky enough not to avoid getting abused through adoptions by homosexual men.
Child abuse and pedophilic sex rings will skyrocket, but I hope you’re not expecting this abuse to be covered by the media. Instead, they will push fantastical new rape hoaxes that try to portray straight men as evil. Crimes by homosexuals will be not be pursued or publicized while false crimes done by heterosexuals will be manufactured. Homosexual crimes won’t even be properly recorded by government bureaucrats—statistics on abuse will conveniently stop recording the family makeup of the abuse victim once it becomes clear that homosexuals perform abuse at greater rates than heterosexuals. You just need to close your eyes and remember homosexuals “love” just like heterosexuals.
Once heterosexuals such as yourself are persecuted and shamed for preferring vanilla sex, and children are converted to bisexuality or homosexuality with the aid of a gay and transsexual obsessed media, marriage will decline from its already pathetic rate, birth rates will plummet, and society itself will collapse… unless we find some third-world shithole where we can keep importing immigrants to further destabilize what remaining social fabric is left. Along with feminism, abortion-on-demand, and birth control for all healthy women, gay marriage is a necessary step for destroying American society, and so the man who claims that “gay marriage doesn’t affect me” is like the child who doesn’t understand that eating ice cream every day is a bad idea that will put his future health in jeopardy. It is already affecting your freedom of speech and soon it will affect your sex life and employment.
The dust from gay marriage hasn’t even settled before the establishment has begun forcing transsexual acceptance down our throats with ABC, ESPN, and Starbucks leading the charge. The media has also started attempts to promote pedophilia as a reasonable alternative lifestyle. While I don’t even want to think of what comes next, I do know that if this degenerate march is not halted, we will see a complete inversion of American society where most masculine behaviors are made illegal and the traditional family becomes a relic of the past. Homosexual marriage will only embolden the degenerate forces that have power in America today. Unless they are stopped, I fear great catastrophe, not only for us men, but the country itself.
