Hong Kong protesters held American flag, sang US national anthem


YOU WILL BE WITH US LATER ON AS WELL. THANK YOU, SUSAN.>>>HERE’S SOMETHING THAT CAUGHT MY EYE IN OUR HONG KONG COVERAGE YESTERDAY. PROTESTERS WAVING AMERICAN FLAGS. AS YOU HEARD, AT THE TOP OF THE SHOW, THOSE PROTESTERS, SOME OF THEM, THEY WERE SINGING AMERICA’S NATIONAL ANTHEM. JOINING US IS MARION SMITH WITH THE VICTIMS OF COMMUNISM MEMORIAL FOUNDATION. THE WAVING OF FLAGS, THE SINGING OF OUR ANTHEM, WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU?>>WELL, I THINK THE HONG KONG PROTESTERS ARE DRAWING A DISTINCTION THAT IS REALLY AT THE CORE OF THIS CRISIS. THAT IS, THERE ARE TWO SYSTEMS HERE THAT ARE CONTRADICTORY. ONE IS THE TOTALITARIAN SYSTEM, THE PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF CHINA, WHERE MORE THAN A BILLION PEOPLE ARE UNDER THE THUMB OF THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY, AND WHERE THERE IS NO FREEDOM, AND WHERE IF YOU WERE TO WAVE AN AMERICAN FLAG AND SING OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM, YOU WOULD BE DETAINED OR WORSE. ON THE OTHER HAND, IT’S THE UNITED STATES AND OUR FLAG AND THE FREEDOM IT REPRESENTS AND HONG KONG PEOPLE HAVE ENJOYED THAT FREEDOM FOR GENERATIONS AND HAVE NEVER BEEN RULED BY THE COMMUNIST PARTY, AND THEY ARE SAYING THEY DON’T WANT TO BE RULED BY THE COMMUNIST PARTY NOW. THAT’S THE ESSENCE OF THE CRISIS HERE. STUART: WHAT THEY WANT, WHAT THE DEMONSTRATORS WANT, IS THE RESIGNATION OF CARRIE LAM, HONG KONG’S CHIEF EXECUTIVE, AND HER REPLACEMENT TO BE FREELY ELECTED, WITH CANDIDATES NOT CHOSEN BY BEIJING. THAT’S WHAT THEY WANT. THAT’S WHY THEY ARE FLYING THE AMERICAN FLAG. I MEAN, WHAT ARE THE ODDS THEY ACTUALLY GET THAT?>>WELL, THEY HAVE A LIST OF FIVE OR SIX DEMANDS. ONE IS THE RESIGNATION OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE, CARRIE LAM. THE OTHER IS THE WITHDRAWAL OF THE EXTRADITION BILL WHICH REALLY WAS THE CATALYST FOR THIS PROTEST MOVEMENT THIS YEAR, IN WHICH SOME 20% OF THE POPULATION OF HONG KONG HAS TAKEN TO THE STREETS. THAT IS NO INSIGNIFICANT FRINGE GROUP THAT IS PROTESTING. THAT REALLY DOES REPRESENT A SIGNIFICANT PORTION, IF NOT THE MAJORITY OF THE HONG KONG PEOPLE. SUPPORT FOR THE PROTESTERS IS EVEN HIGHER THAN 20%, OF COURSE. BUT THEY ARE ALSO CALLING FOR THE RELEASE OF THE POLITICAL PRISONERS AS THEY ARE CALLING THEM NOW, WHO HAVE BEEN ARRESTED AS PART OF THIS PROTEST MOVEMENT, WHICH OVERWHELMINGLY HAS BEEN PEACEFUL ON THE PROTESTERS’ PART BUT WE HAVE SEEN BEATINGS BY THE POLICE, WE HAVE SEEN THE BLINDING OF AT LEAST ONE PERSON DUE TO SHORT-RANGE SHOOTING OF RUBBER BULLETS AND BEAN BAGS — STUART: SORRY, I’VE GOT TO GO. I’M REALLY SHORT ON TIME.

  1. yes the U.S.A is not perfect but it's a whole lot better than china.every person in china would rather live in America and I wish these stupid commie leftists Millennials could get that through their heads.If you hate the western world leave.

  2. Hard hitting News to come out of what's happening in Hong Kong. This Vid sees clearly the view of events. Video hits with A clear cut unbiased objective reporting. Video outlines in brevity the underlying significance of the incompatibility of The Republican American Constitutional Ethic and the Communist manifesto ethic

  3. Man this is a very biased fake news. Hong Kong never had the opportunity to elect their leaders under British rule…

  4. Free Hong Kong 🆓 香港的自由
    The future of Hong Kong is the future of Taiwan and Japan.
    To protect liveral democracy
    No One China!! 香港加油 from JP

  5. FOX News, you can take all these zero IQ things to America (please just not the states I live, TN and GA) . They will keep on doing what your owners want.

  6. There is no absolute freedom. You need to obey many rules so that you can live in harmonious societies with orders. The problem with HK now is there are too much freedoms and legal loopholes. Many young people in HK are spoiled, blind, brainwashed, and misled! I have lived US, CN, HK. I know what is going on

  7. Even in the case of Syria, where the rebels later adopted a flag of their own, or Iran where the opposition had their own Iranian flag, no one ever made a habit out of flying flags of other countries or singing the anthems of other countries. Try waving an American or Israeli flag in any protest in a Muslim country — to say people there would react negatively would be an understatement

  8. I feel shocked that people talk about China without even going to the country. The information you get from western media is not true. I don’t think you know the news that HK people organized anti violence protests. They themselves fight against those HK protestors who want their own freedom but use violence to hurt HK.And in western news you can’t see protests held by international students from mainland China. They support Chinese government. It happens everywhere.

  9. Those people should really go to US. Under the freedom and democratic environment maybe someone could become the President of USA. That's called American Dream.

  10. It is time for these smart people leave Hongkong and go to America.

    I hope they will learn about history (Hongkong is belong to China) and math (5 million people in Hongkong know about history and decided not joining the radical demo in the street) in US

  11. What a bunch of idiots.The demonstrations are organised by the cia.They want a invasion from the Chinese army in Hong Kong so the American goverment has an excuse to put economic sanctions on China.

  12. What is the use, one call from the China president, the China army will take down all of them.. Just give up and learn and operate in Chinese rules, they are wealthier than Hong Kong. I would piggy back of China.

  13. Amazing that these people who crave freedom under a communist dictatorship love American freedom more that the the communist left morons in this country. Simply stunning.

  14. Little do the Hong Kongers know that America is now turning communist…. especially if the Democrats get in. Say good bye America!

  15. Freedom to have a Governor-General appointed from Westminster thousands of miles away! The mother of cretins is forever pregnant!

  16. Can we trade our communists for these wonderful people? I was in Hong Kong we pulled into port in the Navy they appreciate freedom. While they are waiving the American flag, we are waiving the CCCP flag. What is wrong with this picture?

  17. Unbelievable that supporters of the Chinese government are living in
    Canada….send them back to china if they don't support freedom for
    others like they themselves enjoy here. Using our tolerance to spread their intolerance. Shameful, selfish mentality.

  18. since when did HK have those freedoms for generations? The native HKers were treated as second class citizens to the British. The Governor General was in charge and had real power. Please report facts.

  19. The greatest irony of all will be if in future China becomes a capitalistic democratic republic and USA becomes a socio-communist dictatorship.😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  20. Don’t you guys go to school, everyone is busy learning you know.why you have sooo many time? And if you guys want to become Americans, just go and never come back. We support you, bye! 一路顺风,汉奸们!

  21. Glad to see, these people understand freedom. Freedom comes at a cost. Let's see if they willing to fight for it.

  22. Would be awesome if they had guns to fight for their freedom. Notice I didn’t say “second amendment” because the bill of rights is a list of inalienable rights endowed to us by God and not in any way bestowed to us by any government.

  23. Wrong wrong reporting. Study the subject before you spread the wrong information to the mass. Sorry this is not freedom of press.

  24. Western gov never sease to divide other countries, look at what theyve done to Syria, Iraq Libya, China will not tolerant this, fxxk off CIA

  25. Outrageous gesture! What is this liberty and freedom business? As far as bratty American millionaires are concerned, this flag is pure evil

  26. Were is the great america in all this scrimming on trumps bull..hes in bed with communism he no freedom BELEAVERS him like onipiton DICTATOR….fools ….

  27. Let's trade the left for these guys. At least they will appreciate it more than them and people that support others such as Kaepernick. So sad.

  28. 😮 heartbreaking for the British. Their be loving adopted sons are waving American flags. It’s a slap to the face.

  29. Isn't this awesome. But it makes me a shame of the some people in our country who has the freedom they long for. They will not stand up for our flag here. We should not take our country for granted. There are people who want to change it. Thank you to the men and women. Who were willing to give their lives. So we could have that freedom. My wonderful husband was one of them. He was in the airforce in the Korea conflict. They didn't receive honor until after the Vietnam veteran's did. I say we honor them all. I love you Bob even though you are with Jesus in heaven now.Thank you to all who served

  30. The idiots carrying the USA flag should realise it was the USA that passed the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 to bar any Chinese entering the USA!!! It was only repealed in 1943 because China was an ally fighting the Japanese. Wake up you idiots!!!

  31. America and many other countries stand firmly behind you Hong Kong. America love you 👍👍👍👍 God bless America and God bless Hong Kong 🙏🙏

  32. C’mon people 4-10 guys waving a US flag and singing the Star-Spangled Banner does not represent the mentality of the hundreds of thousands that have taken to the streets for the past 11 weeks… I love the US but why do Fox viewers have to use every sign of patriotism they see to tear down non-conservative Americans? This group of people could be considered to be the extreme left group within the HK protests….

  33. keep twisting. wtf is waving American flag has anything to do with any of the causes? even worse, there were British flag waved too. Really? The British occupied HK stemming from the opium war and never recognized any HK citizens as British citizens. It's really sad to see some of the bad apples that ruined the causes of the demonstration. Can anyone with 100% confidence say those arrests are politically motivated? Have you guys seen the violent acts that some of the "protesters" put on? Freedom of peaceful assembly has an emphasis on "peaceful" as well. Freedom also goes side by side with basic law abiding.

  34. In HK the rich get richer the poor get poorer, and their system is capitalism. Americans are suffering from the same problem…

  35. China should give these thuds a taste of real democracy. what would happen if they protest like this America. they all be shot.

  36. Trump is pleased…are these the same people that takes other peoples seat on planes and gets mad when you confront them?
