China lashes out after NBA team tweets support of Hong Kong


ALL THOSE STORIES COMING UP. FIRST, THE HOW FIRST, THE HOUSTON ROCKETSEN TANGLED IN THE HONG KONG PROTESTS, THE NOW DELETED TWEET BY THE GENERAL MANAGER OF THE ROCKETS, DARRYL MAUERY, READ THIS, FIGHT FOR FREEDOM, STAND WITH HONG KONG. MAJOR SPONSORS AND CHINA’S BASKETBALL ASSOCIATION RESPONDED, SAYING THEY WILL NO LONGER WORK WITH THE TEAM. JOINING US RIGHT NOW IS FOX NEWS SENIOR JUDICIAL ANALYST, JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO. GOOD TO SEE YOU. WE KNOW THE ROCKETS HAVE ROLLED OVER AND SUCCUMBED TO THE CHINESE.>> THEY ASKED ME THREE OR FOUR DAYS AGO WHAT DO THE HOUSTON ROCKETS HAVE TO DO WITH THE HONG KONG RIOTS, WHICH HAVE — I WOULD HAVE SAID NOTHING. WE KNOW THAT’S NOT THE CASE. THIS IS NOT A CASE OF FREEDOM OF SPEECH. THIS IS A CASE OF WHAT SPEEM SPEECHWORK BEST TO SELL YOUR PRO SPEECHWORK BEST TO SELL YOUR PRU SPEECHWORK BEST TO SELL YOUR PRT SPEECHWORK BEST TO SELL YOUR PR. THERE IS NO FIRST AMENDMENT IN CHINA. THERE ARE NOT USED TO HAVING ANYBODY PUBLICLY CRITICIZE THEM, MUCH LESS AN ENTITY LIKE THE NBA WHICH THEY WANT OF TO COME OVER THERE. THERE ARE A COUPLE GAMES SCHEDULED TO BE PLAYED THERE, EVEN INVOLVING THE FORMER NEW JERSEY AND NOW BROOKLYN NETS FOR WHICH I AM A STRONG SPOUTER FROM WHEN THEY PLAYED IN NEW JERSEY — SUPPORTER FROM WHEN THEY PLAYED IN NEW JERSEY. THE QUESTION IS WHEN YOU MAKE A POLITICAL STATEMENT WHICH IS PROTECTED UNDER AMERICAN LAW WHICH AFFECTS YOUR PRODUCT IN CHINA, SHOULD YOUR BOSSES FORCE YOU TO RETRACT THE STATEMENT? THE BOSSES ARE GOING TO DO WHAT’S BEST FOR THE PRODUCT AND THAT’S WHATTED HAPPENED HERE. YOU MAY — WITH ALL YOUR HEART SUPPORT WHAT THE GENERAL MANAGER OF THE ROCKETS SAID. IF IT’S GOING TO IMPAIR THE ABILITY TO MARKET BASKETBALL IN CHINA, HE’S GOT TO THINK TWICE BEFORE HE MAKES THAT –>>THAT’S WHAT INTERESTING. IT’S INTERESTING IN A COUPLE PHASES, THAT HE SAID IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.>> IT WAS UNPROVOKED.>> IT WAS UNPROVOKED AND IT WAS GOING TO BE INFLAMMATORY. SOME INTERESTING THINGS ABOUT THE ROCKETS, THAT WAS YOU MING’S TEAM THAT DRAFTED HIM, THAT INTRODUCED CHINESE PLAYERS IN THE NBA. AND THE FACT THAT WE’VE GOT MORE AND MORE GAMES AN ENGAGEMENT WITH THE CHINESE, HUGE MARKET, WE TALKED ABOUT THIS EARLIER ABOUT HOW BIG THE MARKET IS TO THE NBA AND CHINA AND HOW THEY DON’T WAS TO SCREW IT UP THIS TIME.>> THEY TALK ABOUT SOCIAL JUSTICE. THIS REMINDS ME OF THE NFL KNEELING DEBATE. PEOPLE GOT OFFENDED THEY WERE GOING AGAINST THE FLAG. EVERYONE CAME TO A HEAD. THIS IS THE SAME THING THAT NEEDS TO HAPPEN WITH THIS SITUATION, BECAUSE AT SOME POINT THIS CONVENIENT SOCIAL JUSTICE, CONVENIENT SOCIAL JUSTICE WHEN IT FITS YOUR POCKETBOOK, NEEDS TO CHANGE. YOU’VE GOT TO BE ABOUT PRINCIPLES. I THINK YOU SEE THAT OVERALL IN SOCIETY RIGHT NOW IN AMERICA, BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT WE’RE SHOWING THE KIDS IS THAT IF SOMETHING’S CONVENIENT, THEN STAND UP FOR IT. IF IT’S NOT CONVENIENT FOR YOU, THEN — WHAT HAPPENS TO PRINCIPLES. IT’S THROWN OUT THE DOOR.>> I AGREE WITH WHAT YOU SAY. THE CHINESE MARKET IS NOT LIKE THE AMERICAN MARKET. IF THE GOVERNMENT DOESN’T LIKE A MESSAGE THAT A ACCOMPANIES THE PRODUCT, THEY WON’T ALLOW THE PRODUCT TO BE SOLD. MARIA: MAYBE THE HOUSTON ROCKETS SHOULDN’T BE INTERESTED IN GOING TO THE CHINESE MARKETS. THIS IS JUST ABOUT MONEY. DAGEN: THIS ISN’T JUST A HOUSTON ROCKETS ISSUE, THIS IS AN NBA ISSUE. THIS IS NBA AND ADAM SILVER AND THE BUDDIES WHO RUN THE LEAGUE WRINGING THEIR HANDS OVER CHINA RATHER THAN THE UNITED STATES. THEY’RE CHOOSING COMMUNISM OVER ONE PERSON SPEAKING OUT IN FAVOR OF DEMOCRACY IN HONG KONG. THAT’S THE DECISION THEY’RE MAKING, OH, YOU CAN’T MAKE THE COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT MAD. THEY’VE GOT A MILLION PEOPLE IN CONCENTRATION CAMPS. THEY SPY ON THEIR OWN PEOPLE THROUGH A.I. AND FACIAL RECOGNITION. THERE IS NO HE FREEDOM OF THE PRESS, THERE IS NO FREE INTERNET AND THEY’RE STEALING FROM AMERICA AND THAT’S WHAT THEY’RE WORRIED ABOUT. THEY’RE WORRIED ABOUT CHINA. YOU CAN’T SAY ANYTHING THAT MAKES THE COMMUNISTS MAD. BUT THEY’RE NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE FANS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES. I THINK CONNELL McSHANE YESTERDAY TWEETED, HE SAID IT’S KIND OF — IT’S HILARIOUS THAT THE NBA HAS FOULED UP SO EPICALLY THAT THEY’VE UNITED THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA AGAINST THE LEAGUE. MARIA: AND DON’T FORGET WHAT CARRIE LAMB IS TRYING TO DO RIGHT NOW, THIS EMERGENCY MOVE THAT YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO WEAR A FACIAL MASK. YOU’RE NOT ALLOWED TO WEAR A MASK IN THE PROTEST. WHY DO YOU THINK THAT IS? CHINA HAS FACIAL RECOGNITION CAMERAS AND THEY WANT TO SEE WHO ARE AT THE PROTESTS. BECAUSE YOU’RE GOING TO GET IT. THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES FOR IT.>> MOST OF THE PROTESTERS ARE STILL WEARING THE MASKS. SO PEOPLE GET ARRESTED FOR WEARING MASKS AND THE ACT OF THE ARREST THE MASK IS DESTROYED AND NOBODY CAN FLOOIVE A COURT WHO — CAN PROVE IN A COURT WHO WAS WEARING A MASK AND THEY GET BAILED OUT AND WEAR THE MASK AGAIN. MARIA: THAT’S WHY I HAVE A PROBLEM WITH GOOGLE HAVING AN A.I. LAB IN BEIJING. GOO BELL — GOOGLE WALKED AWAY FROM A PENTAGON CONTRACT AND NOW THEY’RE WORKING WITH CHINA AND THERE’S NO SEPARATION OF MILITARY AND COMMERCIAL USE. WHEN YOU HAVE AN INNOVATION IN CHINA, THE FIRST PLACE IT GOES IS TO THE MILITARY. DON’T TELL ME GOOGLE IS NOT WORKING WITH THE CHINESE MILITARY.>> GOOGLE IS POKING THE — THEY’RE GOING TO ADDRESS HOW AMERICAN TECHNOLOGY FALLS IN THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO WOULD USE IT TO HARM US. MARIA: THAT’S WHY WE’RE GOING TO TALK WITH PALMER LUCKY COMING UP, THE FOUNDER OF ANDERL INDUSTRIES, THEY GOT THE PROJECT MAY VEIN MAVEVEIN MAVENEIN MAVEN CN MAVEN CONTRACT. THEY MAKE THE DRONES FOR THE PENTAGON. REALLY GOOD CONVERSATION AND

  1. I support the independence of American States and the return of Indians to their territories. I think 911 is a great battle of faith. I support what Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda have done in the United States. They fought for national freedom and belief. As for the recent shooting in the United States, I think it is the awakening of freedom and the necessary sacrifice made by the American people for the revolution, which should be supported and understood. Are you happy as an American?

  2. Here's the joke:
    NBA Players can kneel and protest against Confederate rallies but the whole NBA doesn't have the integrity to stand up against political and finanical blackmails. I guess they kneeled during national anthem back then just to say "I bow down to the almighty Confederates and vow to be a slave."

    Guess they all need some Tegridy weeds now, ya'hear? Tegridy Weed, for the finest people with Tegridy.

  3. whoever wants to split China is the enemy of the Chinese people,whoever wants to split USA is the enemy of the
    USA people

  4. The funny comments from the Chinese are saying California should leave USA, but they don't know a lot of Fox News viewers/Conservatives would like that very much LOL.

  5. It is true that you have the freedom of speech, and It is also our freedom that we will not play with you guys anymore

  6. If only our treasonous president had the Moral Courage to tweet the same – but then again Treasonous Trump has no morality, only self interest.

  7. You do not know for a fact that all these people you claim…..are in Chinese concentration camps….America has more people in prison than China does…do you think they are oblivious to the media spreading propaganda? Clean up your Drug problem and your own Corruption in Government before you demonize other Nations.

  8. no, you are totally wrong. It is not about the Chinese government. All Chinese people will not watch this game. if you don't believe it, come to china and do a survey by yourself. I bet there is no one says they want to see NBA without considering its words.

  9. It's the US news media is fault, WHITCH portray the rioters and Hooligan as a "Pro democracy Protest", which is a ridiculous. If this happen in washington, DC, WILL news media call this Pro democracy? Never. So it is the us media misguided the NBA player and the general population of the united states.

  10. Support China! You can cancel my account! Western media just uglify everything about China!American political ideas are not more advanced!

  11. Please Huston Rocket~ stand with HK protesters, even though you will losing tons of money and market, but HK people's"freedom" and "human rights" are more important, that's what american sprits all about right?

  12. Simple rule: If you want to operate your business in a country, you have to obey the law of that country. That applies to the Marriott, Delta, Gap cases. In the NBA case, you simply can't denounce China while still expect to make a fortune out of there. Would someone call out his VIP client an idiot to humiliate him and still expect him to be as happy as usual? In regards of freedom speech, can we freely say things that support terrorism or racists in the U.S?In China, the integrity of the country matters the most to all its citizens. Thus likewise, in China, you simply can't freely say things to support separatists…and if you insist to, better be ready to face the consequences. period.

  13. Freedom of speech should be carried out in the right world outlook. Is racial discrimination and words that violate the division of your country also free speech?

  14. She is very anti China. Did she watch videos of how the thugs attacking civilians who voiced different opinions? That is not protest for democracy, that is riots and fascism.

  15. Please think about if a Chinese star supports the independence of California. Certainly, that will offend General Americans, of course.

  16. US companies' revenue in china was $250-300 as of 2018, which is not reflected in US China trade deficit. there is no need for china to lash out. a simple suspension should do the job.

  17. The Hong kong kids are more commie than communist china. You see the video of them harassing an old woman yet?

  18. China has being buying up everything in America better wake up we are slaves owned by China!!! It says so right on our money!!! Note of debt!!

  19. Slowly but surely the American sports are leaving me, just like the democrat party did. I guess they don’t value my business. I stopped watching football and now NBA no more. Good I have more time to do better things !!

  20. You too can work for the C.I.A. Just go to your local bank. Tell the president of the bank that you are willing to sell your soul for a paycheck.

  21. My Father always said ! make sure your family have food on the table before you enter to politic! politic only effecting to 1% top elite not 99% of ordinary people!

  22. I guess people have not realised that Supporting Hong Kong violent protestors is equivalent to supporting ISIS nowadays, -as shown in the video.

  23. To Daryl Morey, You hurt my feelings and I don’t want your product anymore, i think that makes sense. So don’t question why Chinese are stop NBA broadcast. If you say you have freedom of speech, i think we have freedom of “no NBA“.

  24. can you wear masks to go violence in the western countries?? you fxxking retarded..I which the gov. should make sure the law is abid and not allow those masked thugs infesting the lives here…

  25. 3:37…hehehhe, don't let commie scare American, stand up to bullies. No money in the world will take away American freedom of speech. China=commie bully to their own people too.

  26. They think about China base on what they think China should be. I can guarantee that they can’t even say more than five Chinese words or names of Chinese cities. They just live in their own imagination world and never wake up.

  27. Why are these bitches so ignorant? I support that guy who was in the right way of thinking about business? BTW wearing mask to protest is also not allowed in Germany. How do you judge it?

  28. l support every states leave the America forever,so as to support the Indians fighting for their own territory,also the 9/11 should be considered as a great battle for sacred faith.Above all are my own opinions,which is irrelevant to my country.

  29. Quit Rockets GM and Join Politics. That's all. The GM has the freedom of speech, and so do the Chinese Fans (600 millions) has the freedom to choose the best.

  30. The Rockets should support the rule of LAW in Hong Kong. Doesn’t any of you know what is really going on with the riots in HK? Get the whole story before you start condemning.

  31. Western sports like the NBA are a multicultural social engineering program. The fat stupid chicken wing eating westerner is the target. China is best to boycott this social poison.

  32. China's territorial issue is prohibited from being a joke. There is no link between the United States and the so-called freedom of speech.

  33. When you don't know about it, please don't express your opinion easily.

    Hong Kong's opposition is waging riots against China in Hong Kong because they want to split Hong Kong and China.

    Like I said, "I support California's independence, he does not belong to the U S," and I hope you can respect my freedom of speech.

  34. First off,

    That lady that said Adam Silver and the NBA needs to focus on America ….. that's not the point of Basketball Beyond Borders. The point of scheduling exhibition games all over the COUNTRY and NOT JUST CHINA .. is to EXPAND the game. Maybe she should do her research before she creates a narrative that is COMPLETELY way off base.

  35. China is basically North Korea with stolen tech and a billion farmers…and they are becoming Germany circa 1935.

  36. Well, American has the right of "freedom of speech", but Chinese has the right of who they want to do business with. Fair play, isn't it? Why are US medias so dramatic?

  37. Why a Sports organization gets involved with politics. We all know HK is being terrorized by US sponsored Color Revolution right now. And somehow a NBA general manager thinks it is a great idea to throw himself into the burning pot. And somehow he thinks that he could get away with it from Chinese Market. What really posses these people who think THEIR VALUES are better than others? Serious … when Clipper owner says something inappropriate. That is a life long ban from NBA. When a NBA general manager says something to support an on-going Color Revolution that aims for independence, it is somehow a VALUE that we all should defend. Double Standard?

  38. An American took the knee and lost his "market" in America. Go Figure???? The ignorance here is laughable….NBA annual revenue $8billion China contribution $4billion thats 50% I guess franchisees like Cleveland Cavaliers will need to take further losses in 2019/20 season. What has China being communist country got to do with 10men bouncing a leather ball for 48minutes?

  39. Butterfly effect … A 19-year-old man suspected of killing his girlfriend during a Taiwan trip and dumping her body near a Taipei subway station……

  40. Nowadays a lot of corruptions government and country’s got down on their knees for Renminbi of China We fight for Freedoms Democracy and Human-rights Stand for Hong-Kong of freedom speech.

  41. Today China said freedom and democray are their bottom line. Americans and NBA should not talk about democray in China in order to respect the Chinese. Tomorrow they may say they don't like NBA now, and NBA becomes their bottom line. Are Americans gonna stop watching and talking about NBA ?

  42. You are such a biased loser! I hope riots set fire on your family, beat up you and your family members, and separate your family members from you without any reasons. And people say "I support the people who did the bad things to you and your family because that's my freedom of speech." Please do not use hypocritical double standard! That's not freedom of speech! That is either dirty regime change lies, or lack of basic respect and common sense.

  43. Why you wh*res not talking sh*t about the communist/socialist like Bernie Sanders, Bill diBlasio, AOC, Omar and Elizabeth Warren in the USA? 😂. Is communist/socialist acceptable in the USA and not in other countries?

  44. Doing this publicly for reasons of pride was a big screw-up on China's part I think. Their only chance at getting away with what they are doing is leveraging the ignorance of American citizens. Something like this NBA thing is a demonstration that everybody can understand.

  45. Hey coach, are you stupid, it's a pleasure to play sport and make money at the same time, why did you acted stupid to talk about politics? So dumb! 😁

  46. that's one expensive tweet the NBA & Houston Rocket incurred. Oh well. That's how a capitalist market works. Don't bite the hand that feeds you.
