So, I’ve got a question for CY Leung. Why do his cops, those engaged in “resolute action” not wear uniforms? I’m sure CY will get right back to me with the answer. He seems like a standup guy.
No but seriously, have a look at this snap:
1) Why is a riot cop, in the attack, wearing street clothes? His helmet says, “Police” but something tells me that’s a lie, right?
2) Seeing as how the People’s Armed Police (PAP) has a longstanding reputation for employing plain-clothes-thugs, might we not infer that the Reds have unleashed the PAP onto the streets for the specific purpose to beat people?
3) Take a really, really close look at this photo. The baton-wielding-goon-asshole in this picture is smiling. No, he’s not grunting from the exertion of hitting an unarmed man with a rod. Really, take a look, he’s smiling.
But hey, just so you Red jerks know I remain an equal opportunity asshole, I’m also going to take a shot at self-proclaimed-allstar Joshua Wong. Joshua’s supposedly leading the student protests. Because he said so. And now he’s on a hunger strike until talks are resumed:
“Living in these troubled times, there is a duty. Today we are willing to pay the price,” the students [Joshua and two of his acolytes] said in a statement.
Hey Joshua, no offense dude, but it isn’t just about you. Get over yourself.
Your tactic isn’t going to work. The Reds will just wait you out and/or let you starve. And they’ll still not agree to any substantive talks. Thus making your actions bizarre and utterly pointless.
Please come up with a different method of using your influence. Because if you think hunger strikes and mob attacks on government buildings are going to endear you to Hong Kong’s public masses, we invite you to observe how many have not bothered to care as the Reds dismantled your protest sites.
History shows revolutions draw those sitting on the fence to the side of righteousness with ideas and a clear separation between the sides. You need to find a way to make your point without self-assured-martyrdom and violence. Violence only makes you like exactly like everything you are fighting against. Not cool.
