Recently, protests in Hong Kong have not shown signs of stopping. In the past few days, a small number of radical demonstrators have started to clash with the police and caused some casualties. At the recent press conference, the Chief Executive of Hong Kong also indicated that she would not give up Hong Kong. This is the largest and longest public and government protest in Hong Kong. since the umbrella movement in 2014. Although these activities are located in a society different from the capitalist system of mainland China, they have also attracted strong condemnation and dissatisfaction from Beijing.

Beijing has used its powerful public opinion propaganda tools to provide an official explanation for some of the information that supports the protests. At the same time, it has also continuously reported to the people in China about the protests in Hong Kong. What is different from the past is that Beijing is not reporting on the protests or increasing the shielding of such information.

This time, Chinese leaders realized that the importance of information propaganda for social stability, there is a reason for people to form Lenovo is the upcoming 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Strong stability is Beijing’s current priority, but it also brings disposal time to Hong Kong’s long-lasting protests.

Beijing has produced two versions of news reports on protests in Hong Kong. If it is from a professional point of view, it is because of the need for publicity and protest, and it is also a violation of basic news facts. The official media in China began to use mobs to describe these protesters. Some of these protesters supported the political freedom of Hong Kong and had great interest in politics. Some people feared that the Communist Party would rule Hong Kong for their own future. On the issue of fugitive offenders, Beijing used it as an excuse to promote the legislation of Article 23 of the Basic Law of Hong Kong. But the demonstrators will be one of the conditions for negotiations with the government. It seems that the situation in Hong Kong now is that the demonstrators and the Beijing Central Government will not take a step back. The promotion of the official media provided a version of the Hong Kong incident in Beijing, which was closed in the news.

Such an initiative has refreshed the Chinese people’s misconceptions about Hong Kong, and this effect has reached the government’s propaganda purposes. And some real situations from Hong Kong have become fake news. Beijing’s public opinion propaganda tools have long produced fake news to deceive the domestic people. This situation is the same as the official Chinese media’s propaganda of Xinjiang policy ten years ago, thus exacerbating ethnic conflicts. But this mistake is blamed on others.

The impact of this has intensified the domestic people’s reading of news with radical emotions Expressing your own radical emotions without knowing the real events, and inciting nationalist sentiments in the public opinion reports of this Hong Kong incident. Beijing deliberately creates such a situation on the one hand, while maintaining its own position and at the same time taking the opportunity to publicize new public opinion. In China’s mainstream social media, the authorities started with young people, advertised false news on these young people’s favorite social media and said that foreign forces are important drivers of this incident. In the countries of the communist system, public opinion propaganda tools Rational use is the necessary way.(BOXUN)
