Jimmy Lai, the publisher of Apple Daily, gets arrested along with his two sons at the behest of Chinese Communist leader Xi Jinping for “violating” a new “law” that forbids embarrassing Hong Kong’s mainland authoritarian Commie overlords. Will the Lai men be whisked away to the mainland under the new extradition law that led to mass protests for months? Bill Whittle says the core of the story is that 200 cops were sent to grab one man and his two sons. Hong Kongers respond to this heavy-handed tyranny by lining up for more than 550,000 copies of Apple Daily, which normally sells 70,000.
