  1. Was biggest mistake to giving this city to evil communists

  2. They are sending a message that "we are afraid of fighting it in Beijing, so we are staying in Hong Kong, carrying out riots and letting businesses close since no visitors and travelers will come, and we don't care if Hong Kong economy will be bad and no one will have a job eventually." That is their message.

  3. They punished ujgurs and they will punish hong kong also.dont mess with china.its her inner business.

  4. Fallen Angels in Hong Kong that are Narcissists!

  5. 🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰🇭🇰

  6. And being mercilessly shot in the eye! I call it blocking teargas with your face.

  7. From what seems evident in all this civil war, most intelligent casual observers and professional analysts seem to think that an armed army assault could destroy the China's economy, as Asia and the west would join forces and isolate China from global trade of any significance and then there will be riots at home as people loose their jobs. Hong Kong is like the Berlin wall on steroids. The mainland , beyond utter destruction of Hong Kong ( if that floats their boat, all be it in alignment with tyrannical communist dictatorial thinking – i.e. crush the enemy within ) , now being in a no win situation, especially long term. If they do nothing they are doomed long term as it becomes a victory for democracy and if they invade Hong Kong, they are doomed long term, as it damages their international reputation. I don't think the rest of the world would forgive China if they invade Hong Kong with armed forces and Taiwan would be game over in terms of the west's relationship with China. They are damned and doomed either way. Taiwan will become more vocal as they could be next in line. Again the mainland tyrannical forces would be damned if they do and damned if they don't. It seems like the beginning of a new cultural revolution. Those cultural revolution seeds were sown in Hong Kong decades ago via British colonization. The British forefathers must have had great futuristic vision and foreseen this situation well long before the secession of Hong Kong to the mainland. Some might see that as a masterstroke of the British Empire. That seems to be the only logical way to read this situation. Truly astonishing. Truly amazing. It will surely go down in history books and form great legends of the past, for future generations.

  8. China infiltrated China PLA into HKP and China sending hitmen to Hong Kong for violence and riots. China stop disturbing Hong Kong and leave Hong Kong alone as the other provinces of China!

  9. Lmfaoo I can't wait till China eliminate hk

  10. The Portland anti March was without problems. The patriots respected the police and never broke any laws. NBC lied. Don't believe them. Fake News,

  11. More CIA backed civil strife. When are you propagandists going to go after Epsteins clients like Gov. Bill Richardson? Never? scum

  12. Trump will not be 'MORE FLEXIBLE' with China, the way Obama was with Putin.

  13. Britain handed Hong Kong over to the illegitimate EVIL CCP , NOT China !

  14. Is China laughing at British`s rules and laws so whole world see?

  15. If Hong Kong citizens had guns like Americans do, the Government would of been over thrown in a few days….

    Thank God for the the Second Amendment. This would never happen in the United States.

  16. New considerations in the struggle of Hong Kong and China Communists. Now it is a long petition for a self governing region known as Hong Kong. But, the protesters should consider new tactics, and to play cards very carefully, to seek good allies, and seek legal ways of formal petitions for self governing. Perhaps the two systems agreement can continue, or be enhanced, or a new political solution of freedom that is technically supported within the upfront language in the Constitutions of China and Hong Kong. <><> Expression can sometimes be more powerful than physical force. Ideally, the Protesters and Liberators need to change tactics and to stay safe. Just some ideas, include small flags of freedom (of various types) on higher ground, or start new dance party protests, or maybe try making friends with some police, and try formal legal petitions, and more powerful Memes. <><> Hearing feedback from much of Kekistan Nation, with strong support for Hong Kong Protesters and Liberators.

  17. Joshua wongworm is not Chinese, he is an illegal destroying Hong Kong for $$$$US dollars and sanctuary, he will go missing then the fake news will blame China for it.

  18. The fake media is here! Completely ignore the facts!

  19. There’s not a single major protest or coup d’état, revolution or civil war that doesn’t have the CIA’s fingerprints all over it.

  20. What would be the point of protesting if in 2047 they would still face the same fate couple of years later? They might as well sinchronize with china now and get head start and their future.

  21. Under what rock is NBC News living? Can you verify your truths before announcing it, or do you care about blatantly lying?

  22. Would US government call people break in the White House peaceful protestors?

  23. to Hong kong company's and investors – relocate to Australia. You will be free

  24. all i see from your footage is a violent mob

  25. Back in 01
    To 04 I kinda
    Remember learning
    About the insadent.

  26. 22 years freedom for hongkong.

  27. Stupid , was there democracy when british governed HK? was the governor selected by residence ? so stupid words, ignorance about the history.

  28. Wow! I had no clue what was going on over there. We Americans are so lucky.
