There has been a Color Revolution (or low-intensity Hybrid War) operation launched against China in Hong Kong running for many months now.
Observing, we can see the fingerprints of both the Alt-Right and the Fake Left.
In this article we will DEFINE some of the key concepts, list some important PATTERNS we see, and predict some likely OUTCOMES.
A Color Rev is a destabilization operation (dressed up as a “revolution”) launched by an imperial power in a foreign country.
The goal is to delegitimize-disrupt-destabilize if the target country is strong, and to destroy it outright if its weak.
It uses both non-violent liberal disruptors and violent fascist gangs within the target country, backed up by undercover special-ops, financing and Media support from the Imperial power.
The alt-right is a #brand put on some new fascist formations to give them some respectability monks liberals. They are a cover for the wider fascist movement and will merge back into it when the time is right. However in the world of the Color Revolution they are freedom fighters and its driving force.
Principally the NGO Industrial Complex, which has absorbed most of the profits of the global capitalist system, taken on many functions of the worldwide governance system and employs up to a billion people. This Fake Left is in political symbiosis with liberals, social democrats, anarchists, trotskyites and other “radical” opportunists.
The “left” and “right” are nominally “opposed” to each other and a Color Revolution mind use only one wing.
However playing them in combination is a move that works well.
One interesting feature of this Color Rev in Hong Kong is the presence of both right and left management, probably due to it happening under “conservative” Trump instead of “liberal” Obama.
Relevant Color Revs organised from Washington in recent years include: USSR, Yugoslavia, Libya, Syria, Ukraine
Terror on the streets
Destructive, senseless violence against the public by ultranationalist gangs
Uprising for freedom/democracy/dignity/whatever
This is the metanarrative, the Big Lie: the 30 second pitch to be repeated again and again to sell the public (who don’t have time for a sophisticated media analysis)
Roving Camera Eye
Media combatants/on-the-ground journalists swarm any actions by the target state security forces, but mysteriously never witness any atrocities by terroristic protestors
White is black black is white, media combatants
Three-Card Revolution Monte
While the fake “Revolution” is happening it will get the Lion’s share of Media attention.
Meanwhile genuine revolutions and popular uprisings happening at the same time will get none or at most minor begrudging negative coverage
- Gillets Jaunes
Within the grand meta-narrative, Color Rev activists will send tailored content to the micro-groups that support them.
So there will be secret and open fascist messages and hooliganism for the extreme right.
There will be grovelling to European colonial flags and worship of the American neocolonial flag for conservatives.
And lots of irreverent meme signs for liberals.
- Alt right
Martyrs, real or otherwise
Geopolitical Chess Moves
Shutting down the financial system, sanctions of food and medicine, drone bombings, special forces infiltration and outright invasion will all be attempted under the warcry of “saving the people”
Train and Equip
Compared to genuine popular uprisings, Color Revs have a trained and disciplined core. These can be propaganda ‘pranksters’ like OTPOR or fascist thugs like Azov, it doesn’t matter.
They are also well equipped: so their resource needs are taken care of. Usually special forces handlers can be seen in the background
- Helmet symbols
- Acid attacks
Young dumb and full of rum
“Democracy protestors” tend to throw incendiary devices all around, including on themselves and their friends. This is then used as evidence of “regime brutality”
Public services and infrastructure, particularly that used by the poor and working class, is systematically destroyed by rioting thugs and sabotage teams.
Schools, hospitals, buses, trains, social services offices, food distribution are typical targets
Working class areas targeted
We see the patterns of petty bourgeois students and others leaving their middle-class neighborhoods to wreak havoc in working class, migrant and religious & ethnic minority areas
Delegitimized counter narratives
Using The Youth Against The Elderly
Young people are recruited and weaponised to brutally attack their neighbours on the streets – particularly the elderly, especially if they lived through revolutionary periods in that country’s history
Celebrity Cool and the Hollywood Ending
A chorus of celebrities will voice their support for the “Revolution” across the various style, fashion and “non-political” media they feature in – making the Rev cool and uncontroversial.
Hollywood (or Netflix) will weigh in itself soon, and produce high quality propaganda.
Note: the story doesn’t have to make any sense or correspondent with reality. The Color Revolutions inevitably descend into disaster and make life hell for the people living there – as this happens Hollywood and the Media simply move on to the next “Revolution”
- Celebrity endorsements
Syria, Venezuela, Ukraine
These are just some of the patterns observed.
New ones are always developed, for example using social media technology or the Extinction Rebellion op applied in the imperial power itself.
The original playbook was written by Gene Sharp, but the military-NGO-academy complex has developed a large scale lab and industry constantly creating new methods.
China will continue to be delegitimized as a totalitarian monster across the ‘respectable’ (liberal to fascist) political spectrum in the West.
‘Economic nationalism’ in Europe and America will be pumped up into a trade war against China.
Independent countries will be bullied into picking sides, with the more powerful EU and US imperialist blocks ‘taking all’ as the winners
“Communism” will be painted as an oppressive ideology, with fascists continuing to build their street presence globally to fight it and crypto-fascist liberals clinging tightly to their Imperialist police and armies to protect them.
The annual conferences and networks of worldwide fascists and liberal cryptofascists will have new members from Asia.
Countries targeted by Imperialism and Color Revolution will link together, following a similar model to the ‘Axis of Resistance’ (Iran-Syria-Hezbollah-PLO) + Russia model which is proving successful in Western Asia.
Revolutionaries around the world will have another case study to figure out what movements they need to build capable of harnessing the peoples power when the Color Rev campaign hits them.
