Whenever Hong Kong protesters are destroying public property, there are no cameras of Western media outlets in sight. But when police decide to intervene, protecting their city, Western media crusaders emerge in full force.

On September 15, 2019, huge US flags were waving in the air. A massive demonstration, consisting of mainly young people, was moving up from the old British-built downtown area of the city towards the US Consulate General, often erroneously called the "embassy."

The temperature was well over 30 degrees Celsius, but the number of 'protesters' kept growing. Many of the main arteries in Hong Kong were entirely blocked.

Western media were there in full force, wearing yellow fluorescent vests, their 'Press' insignia, helmets and masks. They mingled with the crowd, filming US flags, clearly enjoying the show.

"President Trump, Please Liberate Hong Kong," I read on several posters.

"Liberate from whom?" I asked a cluster of protesters, all of them in ninja outfits, metal bars in their hands, black scarves covering their faces.

Several of them replied, mumbling something incomprehensible. One girl shouted defiantly:

"From Beijing!"

"But Hong Kong is China, isn't it?" I asked. "How could it be liberated from itself?"

"No! Hong Kong is Hong Kong!" came a ready-made reply.

Oh Trump, liberate them!
Oh Trump, liberate them!

By 2025, Hong Kong will be a bedroom community for Shenzhen, as the mainland has made relocating Hong Kong banks there more attractive than to remain in HK.


These "hooligans" are only making their future more intolerable when Beijing unleashes its paramilitary Police Force upon the Territory. I suspect this not to happen until after the October 70th anniversary celebrations are over. Xi Jingping does not want to risk world condemnation to mar this Autumn Moon Festival.


Having lived in China 03-15, I can say the authorities are gathering their evidence of those involved in criminal activity and will slowly disappear as the months progress with those more recognizable to be used for public humiliation before being sentenced for their crimes.


The dynastic Chinese were quite inventive in researching how to induce the most pain by methods to limit blood loss, thus their victim is slowly tortured to death.

Spreading "democracy" by violence and terrorism covered in bullsh*t is the American way.

This could have been a survey question.

I think most of the readers here know the answer:

NO!! They are are not "Heroes", they are running lap dog lackeys.
