Charlotte, NC — Many Americans were already ending their evenings when news about the raid on Apple Daily started to break. If you aren’t aware, Apple Daily is a media outlet that is very outspoken on freedom for Hong Kong and against the Chinese Government. According to reports, the reason for the raid was articles that seemed to suggest that there should be sanctions on Hong Kong or China.
Hong Kong Free Press HKFP on Twitter: “BREAKING: Hong Kong police raid Apple Daily office, editor-in-chief among 5 arrested under national security law https://t.co/449vDl6syL pic.twitter.com/Xgl5GUgmOY / Twitter”

In other words, the government did not like what was being reported, so they decided to act and end it once and for all.
As part of the raid, several were arrested. Those included Next Digital, Apple Daily’s Parent Company, CEO Cheung Kim-hung and Chief Operating Officer Royston Chow, Apple Daily’s Editor-in-Chief Ryan Law, Associate Publisher Chan Pui-man and Cheung Chi-wai, the online manager for the outlet. They froze assets of the organization as well.
Now many people will say, what does this have to do with the United States. After all, this is in Hong Kong. There is nothing about this that is part of the US. But the very things happening in Hong Kong are coming to a Biden regime-led US.
There are already calls among the radical left to shut down news outlets, like ours here, because they do not like the messaging. We do not agree with the mainstream progressive lies, so they try to claim we want to rise up against the US government. Nothing could be further from the truth. We want to share the truth in an attempt to save the US FROM the government.
It’s not just our media outlet that has been under attack from the radical left, mainstream media, and Biden regime insiders. Other outlets are under fire as well, calling for the arrest of their CEOs, arrest of their journalists, or even the government stepping in to block their distribution entirely. That sounds more like what happened in Hong Kong than in the Free United States of America.
But that’s exactly where we are going. We are moving toward a Biden regime that is going to act on news media outlets that it does not like, specifically conservative outlets, just like this. They want to silence anything that could potentially share the truth with the American people.
Because they believe that the American people do not deserve the truth. They believe that the American people should just sit back and “trust the government” so to speak. You should simply believe what a dementia-ridden President says, prompted by his handlers and the radical progressives that have surrounded him in his regime.
The calls from the radical left to take action just like the corrupt Chinese government should be a warning to us all. It’s a dangerous time to be conservative, but it’s also a critical time for media in the United States.
Mainstream media outlets refuse to cover and report events. Those that do are blacklisted, blocked, and prevented from reaching their audience by “algorithms” that no one seems to understand. What we do understand is that those very algorithms block and censor conservative messaging on a regular basis.
Just take our reach on Facebook as a great example. While we have not been banned from the platform (yet), our reach used to be hundreds of thousands per week. Now, we are lucky if our articles reach 10,000, even as our following has continued to grow. They are purposefully blocking our content from showing in feeds.
So while it did not happen in the US this time, you very well could read this story differently in the coming days. Next time it could be “FBI raids offices of ******, conservative media outlet.” That is exactly what the radical left is advocating for, what the Biden regime wants, and what we as Americans must prevent.
