Avi Yemini in Hong Kong: “I’ve never seen anything like this” police response to peaceful protesters

Avi YeminiGuest Contributor

I've served in the Middle East, but I've never seen anything like the police response to peaceful protesters that I've witnessed in Hong Kong.

It's evening and yet spontaneous protests are still breaking out around the city. The tension is thick.

I'm not usually a fan of protesters who wear masks and dress in black; they remind me too much of Antifa in the West. But having been here for a whole day, I now understand why these pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong dress the way they do — I'll explain in this report.

Remember China is the “favourite dictatorship” of the moron idiot joke that is Trudeau

The military exercise’s…………

Liza, I would not mind betting that Trump has been on the phone to China and I would bet that he is trying to convince them that what Hong Kong is doing is a good thing and China should perhaps ease up a bit and become more democratic by joining the modern world.
Of coarse this would be a hard sell, especially when you look at the Thugs in the EU, determined to destroy democracy.

The military exercise’s have concluded today. Will the military go home now or are they going to move in? Hong Kong isn’t going to give up their democracy, it will have to be taken.

The white race is dying off and with the help of people like Trudeau, May, Macron and Merkel it will soon be a thing of the past. I think it is time that we started to fight back. If you have Kids or Grand Kids, what kind of future do they have to look forward to? What kind of future do ‘we’ have in front of us? Unless we do something now, there is no future.
Can you hear the Muslims sing.

By the looks of what is going on in Portland, anyone would be safer in Hong Kong! I don’t even know what to say about what is happening in the world today.

This is the reason the American Founding Fathers had the foresight to enshrine the first and second amendments in the constitution. Nothing to do with hunting and target shooting.
