  • Americans talk democracy, yet you choose to only care for the voices that suit your interests. Such hypocrisy
    Fake news, evil US empire propaganda

  • Why did Britain have to turn over Hong Kong to mainland China? I can't help wondering why the decision was made given China's history of lies and deceptions. The United Nations needs to come to Hong Kong's aid in this matter ASAP before not even the Hong Kong accord will be honored by China. I pray to God for these people, who are so overpowered, that the world will come to their aid right now before help is too late.

  • Just wait the media will be blacked out by China and the tanks will come in… Freedom is not Free. Trump 2020. I will defend my country just like them.

  • Ya that's the Chinese military dont be sheep the communist party in this country Is trying the same thing. Stay strong god is on our side. Freedom

  • For once can America arm these rebels. All the dipsticks we arm around the world and we don't weaponize these people calling freedom? Well I guess they don't have oil sooooo…

  • If Hong Kong were to fall under massacre on 8.18, I will not vote for Trump again as president in the 2020 election. USA should support Hong Kong for the fight for democracy and autonomy in the front line against communism expansion for the free world.

  • Video are edited unbalance, police will not do anything if not provoked.. video and news only shows police reactions but not showing what makes police do so..
    Same like the title.. there are no Pro Government.. they are pro non violent and destructive behavior..
    Please be wise and search for more videos and you will understand me.

  • We The People: "So…L.A., San Francisco & we'll throw in Portland for Hong Kong?"
    Hong Kong: "Hold my beer…and watch how it's done."

  • A la recherche du bonheur perdu, dans les capitales Mondiales. Les Indiens des Amériques restent calmes. In search of lost happiness, in the World Capitals. The Indians of the Americas remain calm.

  • Pro-government? What government? the authoritarian government that is not chosen by the people? Well of course you should know why those people support a dictatorships or other non-democratic governments, it is always becuase they have special interests with those governments.

  • Rich democrats and rich republicans have hoodwinked poor and working class people they need this chaos and Tom and Jerry political antics that stoke racist fears to maintain wealth and power the problem is corruption which is legal politically federal local and state😊

  • The rich is pro China or else, they will be blacklisted from the Communist! What happen if rich kids start to going out and protesting?

  • TEMPORARY Trump Tax Cuts for 99% (THAT'S YOU)  is temporary and will expire 2026, 
     Trump Tax Cuts for Corporation and America's wealthiest is Permanent – PERMANENT!
    One minute after December 31, 2025 YOU will have to pay for the one percent. Amazon didn't pay taxes but you will. Happy New Year!? 

    THINK 'TRUST BUT verify!'
    Trump tells you he was a billionaire before the election and you don't want to verify it! Trust but verify!

    The White House wants to gut the nation’s social safety net to give more funding to nation’s defense programs and allow for tax cuts primarily benefiting corporations and America’s wealthiest.

  • I support the people of Hong Kong. If China sends their communist military to Hong Kong, all the free countries should boycott China.

  • All chinese support hk mobs and support usa to militarize them.
    Shenzhen laughs in dreams to have such luck to take over hk eventually.
    First step: shenzhen airport is opened if hk's can no be used!

  • Beijing had a plan all along.  Allow mainlanders to migrate to HK to overwhelm the population so they would be more pro-Beijing.  They also knew that there would be many illegal mainlanders going to HK to seek work.  The only ones that are pro-Beijing are those from the mainland and those who make a lot of money from mainland workers.  After living in mainland China for many years, you can't reason with mainlanders because they've been brainwashed since birth about nationalism and what is considered Chinese territory.  They all live in the past and cannot respect an opposing view in any form that is not what they've been spoonfed all of their lives.  It's usually those who migrate from Communist China that are the worst hypocrites – they want to make money abroad or in HK, but don't want to assimilate or respect the culture that has allowed them in, whether it's into Australia, USA, UK, or HK.  Mainlanders have no respect for other cultures or others' views of the world.

  • Sydney La Roche says:

    they got the extradition bill stopped but they carry on, they just look really dumb now waving american flags. Its really cringe

  • Every actual democracy rests on the principle that not only are equals equal but unequals will not be treated equally. Democracy requires, therefore, first homogeneity and second—if the need arises elimination or eradication of heterogeneity. Carl Schmitt

  • Please help us! please write to your congressmen to help us. I want to quote Jack London that says how we are:
    “I would rather be ashes than dust!
    I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot.
    I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.
    The function of man is to live, not to exist.
    I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them.
    I shall use my time.”

  • So China a response, was to setup there own protesters. How reminesant of america. Like how the libertards hire people to protest. At other people's protests for not taking away freedoms. No, I see now, that this identical. And these zero freedom policy governments. Are always the end result of the world's, Marxism loving insanity.

  • Covering over pro government rallies which is huge By the way and focusing on tense situations of demonstrators just shows how biased this media is. Bring hope to the people, not divide them. This limited behaviour you show limits your progress on this planet.

  • Just think if Don Trump calls millionaires losers the people that criticize him just think what he thinks about the people at his rallies that's set in front and behind him if these people only knew what he really thinks about them I'm not so sure that they would support him he's nothing but a con artist and a fraud and a womanizer that's reality

  • Lets all see Donnie diapers HS and college grade transcripts???? The self proclaimed genius hides them. WHY??? They can't anymore embarrassing than his sexual assaults and fraudulent taxes. Can they?????

  • Protest, but not like riots in other parts of the world where stores are raided and cars are burned! Thumbs up for Hong Kong !

  • Rust belt Crawling says:

    This will be America if they try too strip our guns and the American Constitution from ( US We The People of America 🇺🇸! )

  • In HK there are only people willing to risk everything for democracy (younger people or people whose salaries aren't directly influenced by China) or people who are against the riot because they want status quo without the PLA coming in (business or wealthy people). Those who are waving the CCP flags are all plants from the Mainland.

  • Michael Seymour says:

    I feel and fear for the people of HK. but I do not think there will be a satisfactory conclusion. Though I stand for the people, China, because of the ruling of Hong Kong's govt., is in their perfect right to take over control of it. I strongly hope that the bloodshed will remain negligible.

  • 别人越是恶意诽谤我们的国家,我就知道我们国家越来越强大,越来越多的人眼红并恐惧我们变得强大。在这个时候我们的民族更加要团结互助,切不要中了不怀好意的人的奸计!

  • Tens of thousand of mainland police have been sent into Hong Kong to camouflage as protesters to stir up violence on 18 Aug so as to make excuse for the communists to use military force! This is the usual practice of the communists.

  • Right Side News says:

    It’d make more sense to have China influencing our elections than Russia. Whose to say they didn’t launder that fake Intel through Russia.

  • HK citizens fighting for democracy and freedoms against communism but in US they embrace it.. guess you need to live it to understand it’s oppression.

  • People who say we should defend the democracy in HK are idiots. There is no democracy there. The place is run by old crime families, and the officials there are all puppets to these organized crime families. Its puppet democracy, very much like Italy was back in the day. So STFU about the democracy angle, and admit this is just about showing who got the biggest balls, China or USA. Be told.

  • Guys in the US know sh*t about the affair in Hong Kong. You think Hong Kong should be a country? Well, then Hawaii should be a country, too. And Alaska should belong to Russia. Why not care more about your own country? Yeah, you do have "democracy", you have freedom, but you are not safe, because you don't know which day you would be killed by a psycho. Feel free in the states, gunshots everyday, blow up USA.

  • Hope Sorrowgrave, The Outcast says:

    The Chinese went from communist to authoritarian and the communism spread to North Korea. Things really haven't changed.

  • The hong kong people just gave us the perfect opportunity to check mate the left,see the people from hong kong love America,They would be proud to be American and would add to our economy they would also vote right,See the left wont want this and this will show there hypocracy with immigration. We must talk about bringing the hong kong migrants to America and we check mate the left its perfect.
    Imagine replacing these southern illegal migrants who refuse to assimilate who wave mexico flags and wont even do the bare minimum to help us by learning English who take the most from our economy who vote democrat and trade them for people who love America who learn English who add the most to the economy while taking the least who wave OUR country flag.This timing is perfect!

  • SanAntonioSlim says:

    Free Hong Kong!!! The Chinese socialist dictatorship declared war on the people of Hong Kong when they tried to enact a law allowing for extradition of State targets to the Chinese mainland.

  • This is the same madness seen by "peaceful" protesters in Venezuela. It is the same script, the same training by the CIA. China better start acting defending its territory and interests before it is too late.

  • Until today I still don't know what the hongkongers want, n where they aspects the protest will lead them to. Hong kong, taiwai, Macau will n always b part of China, they already have more them the mainland chinese have, what more do they want. We were once the sick man of asia, we can't b doing badly or wrongfully as the west lies about us bec today we r a super power, Chinese should unite as one

  • Putin: "I wanted Trump to win the election"
    Guessing Dotard lovers didnt see the video Putin sent of Florida going up in flames or the Russians that passed trying to make the war device last week. Silly fascist right still doesnt understand.

  • Well good for them it's time to end communism.we should send some guns over there to him to help him fight the Chinese communist dictator when does trash army that supposed to be the best of the world this is a joke to me

  • This is not the whole truth! The protesters are destroying HK and the force police used is not even half of the force used by American police in 2011 during Occupy Wall Street.

  • Pro Democracy is code for being a slave of the United States. Imagine being freed from the colonial Brits and live under 2 country 1 policy with moderate autonomy only to throw it all away to become a base of operations for Uncle Sam against China. You want to die for that?

  • A white animal rights activist who worked with a lot of Chinese immigrants in her job that had nothing to do with animal rights told me that the reason why you never see Chinese immigrants or their children at animal rights protests in the west is because protesting is against Chinese culture. Them I see this. I can only conclude that they're only willing to protest when it's something that affects them or their own in-group.

  • Eason Wanderlust says:

    If u call riots attacking police, beating tourist and journalists, obstructing public transportation, throwing objects to anyone who has a different opinion ‘pro-democracy’, using laser weapons and imitation guns, I would say OK, very neutral and unbiased report! Good for u.
