Hong-Kong Protests

So much for the popularity of the protest the MSM keeps telling us about.

The mobs called a city wide strike, and just like last time, nobody take any notice, so the mob resort to blocking, intimidating people going about their business.

There's lots of clips of people going to work today being intimidating, etc.

I paticularly like this one where passangers got off the bus to clear barricades. Whats worthy about this is the man is a foreigner, and as such, the mob didn't set upon him like they would if he's a mainlander!

Still, I find it disappointing that no one else on the bus had the guts to get off the bus to help him. If I had been on the bus I would most certainly do so. On this occasion, there were only a handful of scumbags against a busload of passengers who wanted to go about their business. Surely there must be enough like-minded people on the bus as they guy that got off to remove the baricade?

While it might be "romantic" to believe that the people can rise up and organize to fight these gangs, I think it is a little fantastical. Look at history, during the LA Riots, where there was a complete breakdown in social order. The people who suffered the most were Koreans who were left to fend for themselves. Even with their best efforts, damages were estimated to be $500 million.

It is exceedingly difficult to formulate a cohesive defense against the rioters for a variety of reasons.
1. The rioters travel. If you wanted to be patriotic, it is unlikely you will defend a district beyond your own immediate neighborhood.
2. The rioters are exceedingly well organized. This is likely due to foreign support. They are always able to get their hands on ample supplies such as gas masks, improvised weapons, and bring sufficient numbers to intimidate others. To make an effective defense, you need better planning, better organization, and it is just too difficult to coordinate this among regular people.
3. The rioters are younger on average. They have less to lose. Older people have business or family to worry about. The man who was burned has 2 daughters. Plus, look what happens when people organize to defend themselves in Yuen Long and North Point, smeared in the media as Triads. Then it opens up to more revenge tactics by the "Black Guard".

The "good people" are relying on the law to protect them. They are the people generally less fearful of government ("If I don't do anything wrong, I don't have to worry about them"). Even in the "Cradle of Freedom" USA, when LA happened, when Katrina happened, they had no problems with bringing in the armed forces to bear. What is the HK government's plan? This much you can't blame on the rioters.
I am not calling for ‘white shirts’ to go fight the rioters in the streets.

All too often, when brave men and women do stand up against the rioters, they find themselves alone. That emboldens the rioters to then gang up and attack those people, as we have witnessed so many times.

You don’t even need to oppose the rioters’ or support the police, all you need to do is speak up when the rioters are harassing and abusing civilians to say that is not how you treat your fellow human being in a civilised society. Hell, even just booing them would help to discourage them.

But all we ever seem to get is deathly silence.

Like it or not, as part of HK society, the actions of inactions of the silent majority does still impact on what kind of a society you get. This is especially true in a democracy, where the people of HK have a direct voice to express their opinions and preferences.

If they do not vote overwhelmingly against the rioters in the upcoming elections, then that is in effect an endorsement of the current chaos and lawlessness, and they would have no one to blame but themselves for getting the social environment they deserve.

Hong Kong reminds me of China during the days of colonialism and Japanese invasion: there is a general sense of apathy and resignation toward the violence and the rioters.

The problem is partly a lack of leadership from the HK government, but also a lack of pride and national identity. While there certainly are HKers who are proud of being Chinese, it seems a large majority of them do not really know who they are. Without this identity, the concept of fighting for something greater than themselves eludes them, thus they try to continue with their lives while doing their best to ignore the chaos. They are riding toward a cliff while closing their eyes and covering their ears.

Attempted mass murder. Throwing bikes and things onto the railway track! Where in the world this is acceptable?

Still no condemnation from the western governments! what gets me is there are still people around the world thinks this is justified! I just got off the social media having argued with some arxxxxxle, who has actually seen what we have seen (so you can't say he's ignorant of the fact). Yet his line was none of this would have happened if China had "kept their promise" of "freedom and democracy ". Blah blah blah. So in his head, all the violence dished out to people of Hong Kong is not the "rioters" fault and it is totally justified!

Look at this noticed put out by the rioters, for those can't read Chinese, it basically said:

If the adults went on strike this morning as they supposed to, then us young people won't need to come out and block roads and getting shot in the process!

So that's the mentality of these mobs. It's never their faults! This is to justified in their heads so they can live without guilt!

Yes, its disappointing, but you got to think, not all people are brave. And given that most would have seen with their own eyes first hand what can happened to you if you challenge the thugs, people will inclined to be less brave.

Also, the scums working in packs, they are in constant communication with other packs nearby. It'll only take a phone call for more to descend upon you. They are well organised and structured (don't let the MSM fool you that they are leaderless blah, blah.) They also got lookouts all over the place. (Usually a female without mask, so she look just ordinary citizens), and if that don't work, the fallback is the so called "journalists"!

They saying theres organ harvesting, people getting systematically raped, and genocide.

They feel no shame in making mockery of actual atrocities throughout history.
Yes I know. It pains me to say this. One of my niece is extreme "yellow silk". And she posted on social media about 8964! I mean how does that got anything to do with the current situation.

She only did that because all the public sympathy is with the burnt guy, and public anger is with the mob. So they recycle 8964 and posted on soical media warning people Hong Kong could be next!

This is their mind set, she also posted about an 8 year old boy in Changsa recently found dead in the street, and put the blame squarely at the CCP!

I mean, come on, in the USA alone, the amount of people died on the street never get blamed on the government. The abuses of boys and girls in our western establishments never get blamed on the government. Yet when it happened in China, its the CCP's fault!
