criminal actions of the demonstrators that are denying democracy and freedom to law-abiding Hong Kong residents.
And although Washington has repeatedly denied playing any role in the violent demonstrations in Hong Kong, the ill-inten上海后花园
tioned remarks from these prominent US political figures belies both those denials, since they have incited
上海后花园Hong Kong residents to engage in confrontation with both the SAR government and the central government.
If the increasing violent acts employed by the Hong Kong demonstrators are still being categorized as p上海后花园女神会所
eaceful calls for democracy by these US politicians and others, what happened in Hong Kong in the pa
st weeks has shown people around the world the ugly and violent side of Western-style democracy.
Here is what rioters have done in Hong Kong in the name of upholding democracy上海后花园
They have repeatedly occupied public spaces to stage illegal demonstrations, they have blocked roads and h

The Hong Kong police have done what they are supposed to do, which is enforce the law, fight crimes and uphold social order.
Yet by turning a blind eye to the iron-clad evidence of what is happening in the SAR, some polit上海后花园
icians in the US have criticized the Hong Kong police claiming they have used excessive force. One only has to re
call the police actions in Ferguson in the US and in Paris, France, to see how restrained the Hong Kong police have bee上海后花园女神会所

derestimate China’s determination to safeguard stability and prosperity in Hong Kong. Nor should they un上海后花园
derestimate China’s capability to defend its territorial sovereignty and security.
Meanwhile, the agitators and insurrectionists in Hong Kong should discard an
