We can pray for the people of Hong Kong, but there is little more we can do for them. We can inform China we are watching and human right violations will be cause for tougher trade positions if it’s really ugly they can find new markets for their products but that honestly could lead to a war in itself.

How is this any different than the ANTIFA protests, that we all are against ? I'm not suggesting ANTIFA is acceptable. But what are these Hong King protests trying to achieve ?
Its certainly one of the more unique situations, but officially Hong Kong is part of China.
The UK "won" Hong Kong during the Opium Wars in the early 1800's then handed Hong Kong back to the Chinese in the 1990's. China has "allowed" Hong Kong to operate somewhat autonomously, due to the massive amount of wealth generated by HK, but they are officially part of China. Before that they were ruled by the UK so more accurately, Hong Kong has not had independence in damn ear 200 years.
Not our concern, and if the people of Hong Kong want their "Independence" then they better fight for it.

New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.
Karl Marx said, "Destroy their culture, rewrite their history. Ruin their art and literature, and defame their heroes, by offering fabrications to scandalize that which they considered good.
After reading this Obama said I am on it.
I don't think the US has any responsibility towards Hong Kong either. Just saying I wouldn't equate them with antifa.
Not so different with all the attacks on the 2nd, 4th and 5th amendments that are happening. At what point are the people that want to preserve our constitution, labeled as Terrorist and Violent Protestors ?
Communism is a godless evil form of government and imo the Hong Kongians (?) kongites (?)---err, people of Hong Kong have valid cause for a just war.So are you saying antifa is backing the constitution, though in a non-legitimate way? I think it's the total opposite. The founding fathers would have no truck with antifa, but i think they would support Hong Kongs' freedom. China is tightening the reins beyond what they promised to do.Not so different with all the attacks on the 2nd, 4th and 5th amendments that are happening.

It's the old frog in the pot scenario going on over here in these United States. Yes, we're losing our freedoms a little at a time, but over there in Hong Kong, they're being ripped off like a bandaid with super glue stuck to it.

No, what I am saying is: Most of us feel ANTIFA is in the wrong for protesting and using violence to advance their agenda, but it is OK in Hong Kong to act the same way. Its always been a matter of who is the Patriot and who is the Terrorist. It depends which side of the fence you are on. I don't know what ANTIFA is trying to do, they are not real clear on their motives except to be against Trump. As Far as losing freedom, maybe it Would be better to have them ripped off, then at least more people would be aware of what is happening and be inclined to do something about it.
How do you counter the frog in the pot scenario ?
