  1. Dean of the Queen Mary Hospital, Mr. Lú Chǒng Mào, of Hong Kong said: "Hong Kong has a very strange group of people who think they are British; but they now live in Hong Kong. They think they are English nationals; BUT more than half of them hardly know anything about England. They denounced themselves as Chinese; they do have a good command of their native tongue ( Cantonese). 想當英國人,英國不承認。 想當海外英僑民;英國認為他們瘋了。 They want to be English Nationals and yet the UK does not accept nor recognize them. THEY want to be an "Overseas English National/English Subjects; BUT The UK Govt thinks THESE PEOPLR ARE CRAZY. 他們不想當中國人;中國卻把他們當同胞。 英國人殖民香港;他們不敢吭聲。 Though they don't consider themselves to be Chinese Nationals, but China still treats them as compatriots. When the British colonized Hong Kong; they dared not raise their voices. 英國人利用香港搞鴉片;他們心甘情願。 中國人處處幫助香港人;他們卻天天在排斥。 (And yet) When the British used Hong Kong to engage in opium; they were so accepting and willing. The Chinese Government help Hong Kong people whenever necessarily; but they still rebel every day. 他們不會吃西餐; 他們不會做英國料理; 他們天天吃大米飯; 他們每天都喝中國茶; 他們每個人都會做中國菜. They don't know how to partake in Western food; They do not know how to cook British food; They eat rice and drink Chinese tea every day; They all know how to cook Chinese food。 他們拜中國的神; 他們說中國的話; 他們過中國的節; 他們用中國的字; They worshiped the gods of China (customs and culture); They speak a dialect of Chinese Origin; They celebrated Chinese festivals; They use the Chinese characters and symbols. 他們的祖先全部來自中國; 可是他們卻不承認自己是中國人? Their roots and ancestors are all from China; But they refuse to admit that they are Chinese? 這是什麽神奇的邏輯? 真是令人嘆為觀止! What is this mindless and stupid logic? It’s so absurdly incomprehensible! 不瞭解的人一定會認為: 香港精神病院的病人是否全都被放出來了? People who don’t understand, will definitely think: Are all the patients in the Hong Kong Psychiatric Hospital have been released onto the streets? 站在中國國土說自己是英國人? 為什麽又堅持不選擇離開? These (non-English nationals of a Chinese territory) people standing on a CHINESE TERRITORY declaring that "I am British!" WHY AND WHY DON'T THEY INSIST IN LEAVING (HK)? 這一批人的名字叫「廢人」! 十分確定的: 有一天他們將成為世界上的孤兒; 永遠找不到自己的家。」 This lot (group) of people are known as "the disused people or the wasted lot"! ONE DAY this will be A FACT: They will become orphans in the world and can never find a place they could call home."

    Mauricio Pochettino favourite to become next Man Utd manager after Tottenham sacking The bookies make Man Utd the most likely club in the odds charts when it comes to Pochettino’s next port of call at 11/4, ahead of manager-less Bayern Munich (3/1) and Real Madrid (7/2). This just means that there are lots of punters convinced the Argentine will be heading to Old Trafford. Ladbrokes latest betting — Mauricio Pochettino’s next club Manchester United – 11/4 Bayern Munich – 3/1 Real Madrid – 7/2 PSG – 7/1 Arsenal – 10/1 AC Milan – 12/1 Juventus – 12/1

  7. Someone in HK said It is absolutely right for HK Police to arrest everyone coming out for HK PolyU, because the rioters had taken over the chemistry department of HK PolyU to get chemical materials to make bombs. They had turned it into a bomb-making factory, and the HK police got the intelligence, and then surrounded their terrorist factory. If it was the US military in charge of this operation, they would have called for an air strike to take out the university and killing everyone in it, and no one would have questioned their decision.
  8. 🇱🇷 An American living in HK 🇭🇰🇨🇳submitted the below email to websites of US Senator Hawley, Senator Cruz and 60 minutes (for their biased piece on the HK protests) So well written. Must Read. —————— Senator Hawley Your willingness to sacrifice an entire city, its way of life, its civility, the future of its youth, its freedoms unmatched anywhere else in the world, and its high degree of autonomy in a historically unique circumstance, is in my opinion a crime against humanity. Your sole punitive objective of giving China a black eye, demonstrates not only a childish approach to the needs of the world, but also demonstrates a depravity of moral value, unbecoming of any religious institution whether Christian, Muslim, Judaism or Buddhism. And you call yourself a Christian. Should I not be surprised that the most brutal inhuman treatment of other humans beings I have ever witnessed is being committed by your Christian-led organisation? The world is NOT seeing the truth of HK. And you are only perpetuating that lie. It is seeing a facade of half truths created by one nation with the sole intent of undermining another nation hoping to curtail the continued emergence of that nation on the world stage. The world is seeing a singular view of HK events from the lenses of those who wish to destroy its parent, where the only possible outcome is to completely sacrifice the child. I’m not going to excuse China’s past behaviour. But to choose HK as the sacrificial lamb for that reckoning is not only morally wrong, it is tactically and strategically wrong - if your objective is to bring China to its knees. You will not achieve your objective by bringing anarchy to HK. You are choosing the ways of the past to solve problems of the future. HK may need change but don’t revert to a page in the history of China (the cultural revolution) to destroy a society and attempt to build a new one on its ashes when no one in the protest movement, nor their American benefactors, are presenting a better option to what was one of the freest societies on earth protected by one of the best, most restrained and least corrupt police forces on the planet. ——————— Senator Cruz If you don’t understand something don’t weigh in. Your incomplete view can destroy lives. Your being a sideline US enabler of violent protesters will have no positive outcome for the protesters you are supporting...or the city stuck in between your real target (China) and your country. So quit using HK and its students as a pawn in your clear objective to curtail what you fear - Chinese hegemony in the region. You are only perpetuating that outcome. I am an American living in HK and for you to come to this city, claim you see no violence in your short limited time here, and give unquestioned support to those who are destroying this city is an affront to all intelligent law abiding peaceful people who live here. These protesters you are supporting are violating and undermining all rules of law of this great city. They are clearing a path to anarchy. They are lynching innocent bystanders (who are in fact voicing their freedom of speech in the most basic ways), they are destroying anything and everything of a contrary view (and in the most violent way). They are destroying public property everyone in this city depends on. They are committing the most horrendous acts of violence against fellow human beings - Yet you support them. You are an evangelical Christian but there is nothing Christian like in the protesters behavior. It is ironic isn’t it - that the most inhuman and brutal treatment of fellow human beings I have ever witnessed in my life comes at the hands of your Christian led movement. Shame on you Mr Cruz for perpetuating a lie - you see no violence! There is nothing peaceful about these protests. There is nothing Christian about their murderous and destructive ways. There is nothing democratic about their wholesale rejection of anyone who speaks a contrary opinion or offers any solution different from theirs (and they don’t offer any solutions) For you to claim you see no evidence of violence by the protesters you are supporting shows you are nothing but an unmitigated liar or a complete idiot. Such a statement from a foreign government official unmasks your true intentions. I have seen a lot in my worldy travels but I have never seen a peaceful, law abiding free and open society descend into such chaos, over such a short period of time. Where mob justice underpinned by mob violence is the new law in the streets, where those you are supporting are demonstrating a complete lack of humanity to fellow human beings - and propagandising everything in their wake. Perhaps you would like the same violence inflicted on your city? your transport system destroyed, the business in your neighbourhoods set to fire, your friends beaten to an inch of their lives, your young children brainwashed and becoming modern day red guards, only to lose their futures consumed by their hatred and violence which has no possible positive outcome? Then have representatives of foreign governments come to your city vocally supporting those who are destroying the city. Your misguided sense of righteousness is going to lead to ruination for those you are supporting. And you will shoulder that blame, and those in this society will never forget that. Accountability will fall on your shoulders. You can take your false Christian values and take them straight to hell with you Mr. Cruz. —————- 60 minutes I love your show. Always have for the last 30+ years. But I am incredibly dismayed by your single sided view of the HK protest movement. A completely unbalanced view of a Christian led movement that is committing unspeakable acts of violence and showing a lack of humanity I never thought possible. All against the citizens in HK who, if you had done your research, might find them to be a majority. You made no attempt to seek a view of the other side. And by the other side I do not mean China. I mean the majority of people living in this city, now living under a cloud of fear - fearful of speaking any contrary opinion to those who are ironically seeking a democratic platform - those very people you are supporting who have not shown an iota of tolerance for other opinion, but rather have shown an incredible lack of humanity in the violent mob justice they are committing against so many in this city - including a very large number of single elderly individuals who happen to be unlucky enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Not Jimmy Lai, nor Joshua Wong, nor their violent protesters running amuck destroying the fabric of life in what once was the most open, free, law abiding place on Earth, are appropriate representatives of HK. But they are in fact the only reason the people of this city are losing their freedoms and their gold standard legal system. Not China. Next time do your research before becoming an unwitting (or perhaps witting) enabler of the violence being inflicted on a city, and the majority of people living here - living now in fear - not because of anything China has done, but what the protesters, and those of you who are enabling them -are doing.
  9. Actually this is what he said during a dialouge with the foreign media in Taipei. I quot “ 针对近日不断恶化的香港问题,韩国瑜则呼吁香港市民表明“反港独”的立场,好让北京当局放心。他也向对岸喊话,民主自由不是“洪水猛兽”,呼吁北京同意香港举行“双普选”,相信“香港朋友会很热切地接受” He did not use such words” 挺 港人全面 普 选”. (But Tsai of DPP did say 挺 港 人- Stand with HK). Han urged HKers to state their stand that they are anti HK independence, and telling the Being authority that democracy and freedom is not 洪水猛兽 (Scary Beast) . And he also called on Beijing to let HK to have a free election, and such move will surely welcome by the HKers. https://www.zaobao.com.sg/realtime/china/story20191114-1005319?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Facebook&fbclid=IwAR0di0LsODYy_qrnQ6F9lmIjoOHbLIFNJDvzsiFLNjRRolpH0YIp-6G1rrk#Echobox=1573741717

  14. This message is written by the CEO of World Bank. Must read, well written! *Message to the stupid protestors of Hong Kong* Listen to the speeches by Steve Bannon Peter Navarro and John Bolton. The US and the collective west have finally woken up to the fact that for 400 years they had dominated the world; grabbed territories wherever they went; exploited resources; enslaved people; they had a good run. First the Portuguese and the Spanish, then the French and finally the Godzilla - Britannica. The British Empire ruled by Britain for more than 200 years; then the baton was passed on to a new more powerful member of the Anglo sphere - America. The West finally imploded in WW2 like cowboy bank robbers retreating to the desert and shooting at one another when they failed to agree on sharing the loot. Then the Collective West came to their senses and decided enough is enough. They decolonized; set up global institutions; embarked on globalization; promoted free trade; advanced democracy; to prevent another world war. The US managed to bring down 3 challengers; first Germany, Japan, then the Soviet Union. But these 3 powers were not on par with the US. Germany had a powerful military but a weak economy. Japan had a powerful economy but it has only less than one third the population of the US. The Soviet Union has an economy about 25% of the US. Then came the rise of China under the radar. While the west were distracted first by the Cold War, then the war on terrorism, then the Great Recession. For 30 years, Trump and his hawks finally saw China for what it is, a country with 4 times the US population and twice the population of the Collective West. A country that had copied most of the western technologies that had enabled the west to subjugate the world for 4 centuries. To Bannon its now or never. If the west does not stop China's rise now, there will be no other time. Both the Democrats and the Republicans share this same view. So this is NOT a simple trade war. It won't be business as usual henceforth. It will be a new cold war between the West and China, that will persist for the next 20-30 years. Globalization will be scaled back. Newly industrializing countries will face severe headwinds. It's very difficult to become another China. Some said it was China's belt and road initiative that broke the camel's back. This initiative seeks to exclude the US from the grand project linking the Eurasian land mass and will include Russia and Africa. The American continent separated by the Atlantic Ocean is excluded. This riled the US and caused it to turn on China with Bannon as the chief ideologue who went on a world mission to demonise China. Is US a malevolent power or benevolent power? You be the judge. Until the Civil Rights movement in the early 1960s, the Constitution did not protect the coloured races and black Americans. The country was built on slave labor until their emancipation in 1865. The railroad was built by Chinese coolie labor from Guangdong. When it was completed, Congress promptly passed the Chinese Exclusion Act (name speaks for itself, no explanation needed). And the white Europeans settlers committed wholesale genocide of the native Americans (Red Indians). In 1830, at the behest of the 7th President, Andrew Jackson (ex soldier and scoundrel) Congress passed the Indian Removal Act. The white Europeans wanted the rich farming land and the Act said all Indians must be relocated to the west of the Mississippi, inspite of treaties guaranteeing the IndIans reservation lands. Those tribes that resisted were forcibly removed or killed. One of the tribes that resisted was the Cherokees. Many were killed, the rest were packed off to the Oklahoma territory, then empty waste land. Many resettled Indians died of starvation and diseases in areas where the land and climate were unfamiliar to them. And then we have the Middle East and Vietnam where atrocities were committed. Whole sale bombing. Civilian deaths were brushed aside as collateral damage. My God, what a callous dismissal. Then we have the use of agent orange in Vietnam. Until today, 44 years after the Vietnam war, its effects are still be felt by the Vietnamese. Amazing that these protestors in Hong Kong are waving the old glory and singing the star spangled banner. Face it stupid Honks, the Americans don’t want you. They are using you as a pawn to destabilise China. Wake up, morons! Latest news: American in Hong Kong Crucial Message to Hong Kong Protesters https://youtu.be/PJ89K4kswG4
  15. Comment written by a Hongkonger lives in United States on “Why do politicians condemned the shooting of a protester in HK when the footage clearly shows that he is attacking the officer with a massive rod and another officers next to him on the ground being beaten : - We should all know by now that the politicians in the West only see what they want to see and hear what they want to hear. That’s why American politicians like Nancy Pelosi see the Hong Kong protests as a beautiful sight and love to hear Joshua Wong talk about how he is fighting for Hong Kong’s future. They’re not interested in the truth. They’re more interested in finding faults with other people rather than finding faults within themselves as way of confirming their own superiority. That’s why the United States has so many problems at home that aren’t being addressed. With a hundred thousand homeless people and drug addicts camping out in the streets of Los Angeles and San Francisco (Pelosi’s home city), the sight of all those umbrellas in Hong Kong would be a beautiful sight to any sore eyes. The United States love to preach to other countries about political human rights such as free elections, but what about economic human rights such as food on the table and a roof over your head? They’ve made a mountain out of a mole hill when a rioter in Hong Kong was shot by the police. The truth is we’re talking about 1 rioter who unfortunately got shot, but judging from their reaction it sounded like a hundred rioters were shot. The bigger truth is police violence in Hong Kong pales in comparison to the police violence in the United States where 1,147 people were killed in 2017. Why aren’t they condemning something that’s even more serious happening in their own backyard? Notice how I’m using the word “rioter” and not “protester” to describe the scene of the tragedy based on the Cambridge Dictionary’s definition which is “one group of people who meet in a public place and behave in a noisy, violent, and in uncontrolled way, often as a protest”. If attacking the police with a metal rod doesn’t fit the description, then I don’t know what does. They definitely weren’t horsing around. Most of us had seen entire footage and came to the conclusion that the police acted in self-defense. The New York Times also saw the entire footage, but came away with a different interpretation. Just as the New York Times tried to break down what happened, I’m going to break down their attempt to twist the truth. The headline read “Hong Kong Police Shot a Protester at Point-Blank Range”. It implied the shooting was unprovoked which wasn’t the case. This should have been the headline “Hong Kong Police Shot a Protester in Self-Defense”. The video did show the protester attacking the police, but the Times started to nitpick the actions of the officer who had fired the shot. They complained he didn’t follow the rules of the United Nations Charter for failing to announce to the protester he would shoot and his fellow officers failed to administered to the wounded protester. By holding the Hong Kong police to such incredibly high standard, the New York Times were hoping you would forget that the shooting was provoked. They had always accused China of spreading misinformation about the Hong Kong protesters. Now we have a good example of the New York Times spreading misinformation about the Hong Kong police. This goes back to the question. Why do politicians condemn the shooting of a protester in HK when the footage clearly shows that he is attacking the officer with a massive metal rod and another officer next to him is on the ground being beaten? We all saw the same footage, but the politicians and the media in the West preferred to see everything through ideologically tinted lenses. I don’t mean to trivialize this incident and hope the injury of this man isn’t life threatening. The longer the unrest continues, the more likely tragedies like this will happen until the government decide to put an end to the violence once and for all. The sad truth is they’ll be damned if they do and they’ll be damned if they don’t. In the end, which is worth more those politicians’ opinions or Hong Kong’s future?
