Surely flying a plane with a banner saying “Federal State of New China,” would be more appropriate in Australia than the US, but maybe it is illegal now to do this? Can our rulers please let us know, maybe by throwing a rock with an email tied to it, through the front window, to hit me on the head?
“A mysterious fleet of propeller planes was spotted flying banners over New York on Wednesday congratulating a “Federal State of New China.” Puzzled and exasperated New Yorkers spotted the banners from Manhattan, flying over the Hudson, and down over Red Hook in Brooklyn. “I officially have no idea what the f–k is happening anymore,” one person tweeted with an image of the planes over New York Harbor. The banners appear to be a bizarre stunt against the Chinese Communist Party launched by Steve Bannon and a fugitive Chinese billionaire, who together on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre declared the Chinese government illegitimate. “From today the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will no longer be the lawful government of China,” the billionaire, Guo Wengui, shouted into a livestream from a boat in New York Harbor, with Bannon by his side and the Statue of Liberty in the background. “I’m here to tell everybody that loves peace, law, humanitarian — we’re going to end the Communist Party once and for all. We got hundreds of countries of support,” Guo claimed. Onlookers on Twitter said they noticed as many as eight planes carrying banners, some with the message “Congratulations to Federal State of New China!”
