Today, the Western press went absolutely mental again, radically schizophrenic.

Hong Kong leader, Carrie Lam declared that the September 6 elections in SAR would be postponed by one year. Right away, she offered a rational explanation:

"We have 3 million voters going out in one day across Hong Kong, such flow of people would cause a high risk of infection."

Fair enough. But while COVID-19 can justify just about any action taken by the West and also by countries that are closely associated with the West, it is constantly used against Mainland China and SAR.

Irrational double standards are continually used.

Whether elections were to be held or not, attacks against Ms. Lam and Beijing were planned to continue. They were clearly ordered by the Western establishment, "no matter what happens."

We will return later to 'criticism of postponement of the elections,' but first, let us see what was written just a few hours earlier when all major Western media outlets still thought that the elections would take place as scheduled.
