    China needs to be dealt with by the world. Hong Kong should ally with US for invasion of China to destroy dynasty and establish democracy.

    I don't really pay attention to what the media was talking about, but there are many controversies over this topic. I have several friends who can relate to Hong Kong, they told me stories of how Mandarin speakers in Hong Kong was bullied, how those students were bullying family members of the local police's, doesn't matter young or old. I have even talked to those HongKongers long before these protests went on, and one of the feature that I found commenly from them is the hatred toward the mainlanders, *not just the Chinese government but people in mainland China. Many of those students are not what we thought they were (pro-democracy), but rather hatred mechine that is willing to ruin what generations before them worked hard to build the Hong Kong we knew.
    Of course if it's possible, I would very much like to see a China free of communism, but I don't look forward to see China fall from a tyranny to just another form of tyranny belief.

    Ironic how y’all treat the New York Times as just US propaganda (which is sorta is) yet blindly believe Chinese state-controlled propaganda which is far worse and more obvious frankly. Do some research on how China is influencing what’s happening on the ground, whether it be in the police, government, or arming various groups. Look at the bigger picture and you’ll see so many cases of cover ups, “suicides” that were really murders, and how the police is being extremely violent and injuring TONS of peaceful protestors yet there are no investigations.
    There is so much brutality and harassment towards peaceful protestors, where the police are literally cursing out protestors and beating them and running them over with vehicles (this isn’t a joke or an over exaggeration). These have been all caught on video with no proper investigations or punishments.
    Yes, there are a few rioters, but there are far more peaceful protestors and we’re talking magnitudes more. You can look at any conflict the US got involved with and point out violence to make it sound like the US is the good guy. Yet many of y’all are just looking through a telescope being extremely ignorant. Do some objective researching on both sides.

      Yea but clearly u haven't done extensive research on the topic as well, ur assumption that most protests are peaceful is not true at all. If you do more extensive research you see the protests movement has evolved into almost a terrorist like group. The extradition bill has already been withdrawn, but they still riot. Many HK who originally supported the movement had withdrawn from it because of what it has become.

    one can't argue with US foreign policies, their reputation of meddling with sovereign nation's affairs, how they support local people opposing its government, and their connivance with them to destabilize the state to gain control and influence.

    I thought news media is supposed to report rounded facts instead of producing opinion pieces that are obviously biased like this video.
    This is not even successful as an video essay, documentary, or simple journalist piece. It has no representation of other perspectives, no comparatives as supportive evidence, and very minimal research.

    I am strongly support those brave protesters! Keep on your working to destroy the city and try your best to make HongKong the dangerous city in the world. By then,there will be no developing economy there,people will have no job to do and no money to make! So continue your violent protesting for your so-called “freedom”! and in your utopia, police stands for the bad and those who really hit innocent people, cast tear gas, demolish metro station and block the street are marked as heroes + fighters! Just cannot believe what is happening to me it’s like everyone has lost their mind!

    It’s so funny that when they arrested daughter of Huawei CEO it was the headline everywhere but with very vague accusation. And the western media made her look like she is kind of a super evil person while she is just an old lady running a tech company with her dad. While on the other hand A former US military guy coming into a country with weapons got arrested with proven evidence and was proposed like he was a innocent. Serious????? An old lady just having a business trip got accused with many evil crime with no evidence and made the news all over the world. And then a man carry weapon and supports to start a war makes no headline? And was titled that he shouldn’t be investigated ? Good job western media!

    This video demonstates the problem with China. China being a State Capitalist Totalitarian Regime - it controls the Media and the army and its police force to control its people by its use of media control. So, it is postive that TheXvid exists otherwise such State Controled censorship would ultimate and complete.

      Don’t you find it extremely possible that a government that relies heavily on censorship would be misconstruing the facts? The hongkongers have lived their lives without censorship of their thoughts and Ideas, so it makes sense to me that their perspective would be, at least, closer to the truth. But then again I’m looking from the outside in. This is all scary stuff.
