It is much more than what you are allowed to see. The Hong Kong police force are heroically fighting both the rioters and a complex and extremely dangerous international network which is aiming at destabilizing the People’s Republic of China.

I never saw such cynicism before; such a vulgar media set up as in Hong Kong. I am talking in general, but also about what took place particularly on Sunday December 22, 2019. Rioters, waving blue Uyghur, Taiwanese, British and U.S. flags were shouting “independence” and “China is terrorist” slogans, in the middle of the city, just two blocks away from the International Financial Center. While the police stood by, peacefully, in their full protective gear.

Journalists, real and fake, foreign and local, were there, in full force, clearly setting the stage for the ugly confrontations ahead. I observed “media outlets” working, and I ended up photographing and filming their involvement.

The truth is, they were nor reporting; not at all. They were participating, arranging things, provoking and manipulating actions.

All camera lenses, and all lenses of mobile phones, were pointed directly at the police, never at the rioters. Meanwhile, the rioters were shouting at the police, brutally insulting the men and women in uniform. This part was, of course, edited out; never shown in New York, Paris, Berlin and London. Often not even shown in Taipei or Hong Kong itself.

“Media” people were clearly advising the rioters what action to take and when, from which angle to throw things, from where to attack; how to make things “effective”.

At one point, rioters started charging, throwing bottles and other objects at the police.

Eventually, the police would have little choice but to react; they would begin moving against the rioters. And that is when all cameras would begin to roll. That was the moment to start “reporting”.

As a professional, I could clearly imagine how the results of such twisted “coverage” would look like on television screens and on the front pages of Western newspapers: “An unprovoked, brutal police force charging at poor, peaceful, freedom and democracy-loving protesters”.

The insanity, madness of all this had no boundaries. Next to me, just two meters away, several members of the “press corps” were “helping each other from teargas poisoning”. They were frantically washing their faces with water, kneeling in the middle of the street, pretending that they were sick. I felt no teargas effects at first, and only after few minutes, I detected something very, very mild in the air. I photographed journalists, and then I photographed my own face, to show that my eyes were not affected.

It was all a great setup, perfectly polished, designed to manipulate public opinion in the West and in Hong Kong itself.

Of recent I felt real combat tear gas in places like France, Chile, Bolivia and Colombia. That stuff breaks you in half; makes you fall to your knees, shout, fight for your life. In Hong Kong, the police force has been using the mildest gas I have ever detected anywhere in the world. But police actions here have been described as “outrageous” by individuals such as Benedict Rogers, a so-called human rights activist and chairman of the UK-based non-governmental organization “Hong Kong Watch”.

As in the past, Mr. Rogers has been calling Hong Kong police force actions, which are aimed at defending the city against the multi-national hostile coalition, as “police brutality”. Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong, fired back, declaring that “Christmas in Hong Kong was ruined by protesters”. The Hong Kong government said that there had been arson and police had been attacked with petrol bombs.

 

During my recent work in Hong Kong I realized that the situation has been dramatically deteriorating, and the police force is now facing much greater challenges than it did in September and October, 2019. While the number of rioters is decreasing, those who remain on the streets (and in the underground cells) are much better organized, and better funded, particularly from abroad. Both the funding channels and propaganda support for the rioters are functioning professionally, and they are amazingly well coordinated. The funding from the West is massive.

For Hong Kong and its police force, the situation is increasingly dangerous.

The external forces operating on the Hong Kong territory are diverse and often very brutal. They include Taiwanese right-wing organizations, Japanese religious sects, Western-backed Uyghurs, fascist Ukrainian militant groupings, as well as European and North American propagandists, posing as press corps. There are several Western anti-PRC NGOs stirring hatred towards Beijing, all around Hong Kong and the region.

The rioters themselves are more and more radicalized, now often resembling extremist Islamic groups in the Middle East. They are thoroughly brainwashed, they use comfort women, and they are consuming narcotics, including “ice”, amphetamines and certain so-called “combat drugs”, which have been already injected into places such as Syria and Yemen, by the West and its Saudi allies.

As a war correspondent who regularly works in such places as Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria (all these countries have been damaged and later destroyed by Western assaults or occupations), I am shocked to see the West using the same destabilizing strategies in Hong Kong; strategies which have been used in the Middle East and Central Asia.

It is obvious that the desire of Washington, London and others to harm China is too great, and will not stop, no matter what the price.

The hidden truth is that the Hong Kong police force is now facing a tremendous and extremely dangerous group of adversaries. It is not just a bunch of hooligans with black scarves covering their faces that are threatening the safety of the city and the entire People’s Republic of China. Those are only a vanguard – what you are allowed to see. Behind them, there are complex and diverse international right-wing forces: political, religious and yes, terrorist.

At this moment, the heroic Hong Kong police force is the only thin blue line which separates the city from anarchy, and possibly from imminent collapse.

  2. Sounds a lot like reverse engineered Marxist tactics 😛
    And given the source, it cannot be too incorrect (read: Obvious lies in an officious paper in the heart of the action would be counterproductive).
    If the Ukies are indeed active there, it puts the final nail in the fiction they are 1) Ukrainian and 2) Banderists (“Neo-Nazis”), they just decked out Jewish yoof in Nazi regalia (which also better explains other observations).
    “By deception …” 😉

  3. It was interesting to read how the MSM is manipulating the protests and the coverage. Here I believe Andre and not the MSM. Obviously Hong Kong is nothing; they’re hoping to stir up the Uyghurs or some militant youth democracy movement in PR China, or even Tibet.

    The Dalai Lama has been noncommittal:

    “When Deng Xiaoping (鄧小平) created ‘One Country Two Systems’ it was very practical, very good, but in recent weeks, a lot of disputes happened. I feel a little worried,”

    “I think it’s best for every place to maintain peace. Peace is very important,” the Dalai Lama was quoted as saying. “We can resolve any problem through dialogue, rather than negative actions in response to anger, which are useless. These disturbances caused by the disputes are very serious. What I can do is limited; I can only pray for them.”

    My daughter didn’t go to school for weeks when the violence was at its worst. I couldn’t leave HK cuz the airpoet blocked. Black clad rioter extorted money from my wife in broad day light in causeway bay.

    I can go on and on…

    My question is WTF do you really know about these riots ? I will buy a ticket for u to come and experience it yourself. But I think a guy like you will love it since it is pure anarchy. Where else you can beat police up with impunity?

    At this stage of the so called Hong Kong “protests”, there is only one way I can conclude about any westerners who still “care” so much about those rioters/terrorists, i.e. they are PAID trolls. Same for the fake “Vietnamese”.

    By now, average American will be yawning when hearing about Hong Kong. They don’t give a fuck care about Hong Kong, period.

It’s total bullshit. Meanwhile around 20% of the population dies from poverty in the streets of Britain, while 50 million Americans are on food stamps and Trump threatens to eliminate the food stamps (and therefore let 50 millions die from hunger?)

  13. Not doubting that the West is engaged in much dirty business, but Vltchek’s account raises questions quite troubling for his ‘China good guy’ narrative

    One is the ongoing big fact, of how Chinese and Russian etc media efforts, are so weak and timid in confronting the West, despite their unlimited resources to conduct infowars and media battles

    We should be hearing about this stuff from bigly-promoted Chinese or Russian sites, not primarily from Vltchek and similar

    It’s been a continuing disappointment to Western dissidents, how meek and mild things like Russia’s RT have been

    A decade ago, Russia had a good YouTube alternative, Smotri, with English interface … but Russia let it degenerate, English interface closing, the site becoming devoted to pornography etc

    And now Russians whine about being censored from YouTube! Wtf? – Western people are glad to look at alternate sites to get some truth, like they now gravitate to BitChute etc to find what is censored on the GoogleTube

    And then look how China, avoids confronting the Jewish & Israeli figures, despite how Jewish neocons are amongst the leaders in China bashing

    US foreign policy, including against China, is heavily shaped by Jewish billionaire donors like Sheldon Adelson … who makes most of his billions in Macau China, quite closely tied to Beijing … again, wtf?

    China has a direct hotline to Trump via Sheldon … yet Sheldon is allowed to pocket hundreds of millions from Chinese citizens, with apparently no headaches at all … modern China full of Chabad centres, Jews having a long history with China’s politburo going back to Mao, Jews even being non-Chinese Beijing politburo members!

    China apparently is using Israelis heavily to help install its high-tech surveillance dragnet

    And Russia of course lets Israel bomb and kill his Syrian and Iranian ‘allies’ … ‘Putin’s rabbi’ being Chabad’s Berel Lazar

    The implication is that there is something of the character of ‘fake opposition’ about Russia-China versus the West, Israel linking all the big powers … as Antony Sutton exposed was true of the alleged ‘Cold War’, half a century ago, Moscow then being for the USA ‘The Best Enemy Money Can Buy’

    The West is corrupt, materialistic, malicious, indeed … But China tho is appearing the same to many people, a bully in SouthEast Asia and an ‘economic hit man’ in Africa

    And given the quite timid ‘opposition’ from China and Russia on many serious matters, Vltchek’s ‘China good guy’ narrative is dubious

    There seems to be a crop of people, like Vltchek & Saker, who are hired to promote ‘Russia-China good’, when the truth is maybe the sad fact that there are no big ‘good guys’ out there

    Totally agree that the west is orchestrating this in HK, but 20% of the UK population dying on the streets of poverty? You do yourself no favours with that nonsense. There is only poverty as defined by the left as relative poverty, less than 60% of average earnings, and that is always calculated before all the welfare. As to homelessness, well there are enough hostels available, but sad truth is that almost all the homeless have drug, alcohol and or other mental health issues.

  21. TG says:

    The real reason for the Hong Kong protests is massive immigration which is making life for the average person increasingly miserable. The people of Hong Kong are wonderful and smart and hard-working, but when they are increasingly forced to live in cages (no hyperbole), does anyone expect them to just shut up and live lives of increasing squalor without a whimper?

    Though of course, the western press refuses to cover anything suggesting that forced population growth could possibly have any down side, so the media is making it all about obscure aspects of ‘democracy.’

    For a time Hong Kong prospered as the toll booth between the slave-labor factories in mainland China and the West (in the past most things labelled “Made In Hong Kong” were made in the PRC). But now mainland China can easily export from other ports, and while Hong Kong still has excellent port facilities, it has basically no native industry or resources. In this very densely populated land, the natives are forced to compete with ever more immigrants – why shouldn’t they revolt? It’s not like the government will listen to their concerns any other way.

    I don’t doubt that the usual corrupt western oligarchs are trying to take advantage, but the protesters have legitimate concerns and no other way of expressing them.

    It’s like the old saying, that the most miserable level that a people can be driven down to before revolting, is exactly what they will end up with.

  22. Just scanned briefly former Hong Kong riots under British colonial rule. Here are brief summaries for anyone interested:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_1956_riots
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_1966_riots
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_1967_leftist_riots
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_1981_riots

    Conclusions:

    – Cops will be cops and rioters will be rioters
    – Hong Kong protesters used to be leftist and pro-communist

  23. @Twodees Partain

    In an otherwise excellent article, the author did make a small error by labeling these confrontational, anti-PRC, agitators “right wing”. It would be more accurate to call them ‘neo-liberals’, though this label is not entirely adequate either since globalist intervention (and subversion) are the hallmark of both neoconservative activists as well as neo-liberal ones. Two rapacious peas in a pod.

    Anyway one looks at it, foreign zealots are at it again. Check their rhetoric: ‘democracy’, political reform, freedom and ‘human rights’. Lofty ideals, all.

    Then come the riots.

    These media-coordinated stunts are designed to divide, shame and destabilize the targeted culture and regime. It’s a familiar tactic. And it’s a (mostly) Left wing one.

    A similar campaign of subversion is underway targeting Iran. It is using similar rhetoric.
    Politically-correct warmongering is proud, smug, violent, and unrelenting. It’s the Zio-American way.

    Throughout it all, Western media (heavily Jewish) plays a pivotal role in justifying and sanitizing these subversive, ‘pro-democracy’ jihads.

  24. hilarious! I finally went to that conspiracy website (‘Global Research’), and saw that Vltchek’s article was originally printed in the Global Times, one of the CCP media outlets. I knew that what was posted seemed just like the kommie talking points that the United Front is spreading here in HK.

    Also, did you see the photo at the beginning of the article? It shows a journalist that was pepper sprayed by the pigs, and protester medics helping him. Perhaps that doesn’t matter to the Pepe Escobar cheering section posting away from a room in their mother’s house, but it is significant to truthseekers. One would think that the CCP could find something more convincing… but mediocrity and ineptitude rule the day in the kommie echo chamber.

    Those poor poor police! Thank gawd they’re violating law and their own regulations. The mass arrests of peaceful bystanders yesterday is just one example:
    https://news.rthk.hk/rthk/en/component/k2/1500632-20200102.htm?spTabChangeable=0

    “The real reason for the Hong Kong protests is massive immigration which is making life for the average person increasingly miserable.”

    Except there isn’t “massive immigration” in HK… The population in 1997 was 6.5 million, today is 7.5m, one million in 22 years.

    While 1st tier cities in the mainland each has about 6-7 million population increase… Really, any major city in the mainland has more than 1 million in 20 years.

    “life for the average person increasingly miserable” has been caused by neo-liberalism economics, not immigration. HongKong has the “freest economy” in the world…

  27. @Yee

    YEE — are you joking? Comparing Hong Kong to a mainland city?

    Hong Kong is the world’s most densely populated city — every day we suffer at MTR stations and bus stops, crowded footpaths and shopping areas. When Dictator For Life Winnie the Pooh and the CCP allow 150 mainlanders per day to move to HK, it makes a difference, albeit slow and steady. Over 1.5 million mainlanders have moved here since the “handover” in 1997. That is a HUGE number in a city of 7.6 or so million persons.

    I haven’t lived here since ’97, but since I moved here the city has become totally different. It’s ‘Mainlandized’ – and that’s not a good thing. (One should add that many of the mainlanders that I’ve met are quite nice.)

    It IS massive immigration. It is I can assure you. Daily life is different without a doubt.

    Posters on unz.com seem to be so eager to demonize the Anglo-American-Zion establishment that they neglect to look at the facts. We oppose Beijing. We do not cheer for rapacious chewish-Anglo-American hegemony. Do not conflate the two.

    We recently (24th November) held District Council elections, a kind of pseudo democratic exercise for a relatively weak body…but it WAS a litmus test. The pro-democracy/anti-Beijing candidates won 392 out of 452 seats. It stunned the mediocrities in the kommie echo chambers. They couldn’t even publish a report on this event in CCP media outlets for a few days! They are that much out of touch.

    Are Western agencies acting here? Yes. Nobody has illusions that they are ‘hands off’ when such a vital piece of a geopolitical puzzle is in play. BUT no NED/CIA/MI5/Mickey Mouse funding would have swayed the average voter in those district elections. THIS IS a popular movement against the filth of communism, despite what some claim and perpetuate on these forums.

    One last thing (for now): claiming, as some have, that the chewish vassal states are attacking the ‘Sino alternative’ to the Anglo-American establishment is comical. There would be no kommunism without the chew. The CCP and Dictator For Life Winnie the Pooh and the secret courts and prisons and all of the effluence that exists for real on the mainland (and I’m not referring to their contaminated groundwater and agricultural land!), is the chewish experiment taken to the Nth degree. And coming for you if/when the Jew-niversal society is created.

    Pretending that the CCP and the ‘Chinese model’ is somehow a legitimate alternative to what you detest in the ‘West’ is deluded.

    Now…let’s wait to see how quickly the 五毛党 attack me for thinking for myself.

    P.S. – I suppose the fact that I’m (still) able to post critical comments about the filth of kommunism while living and working here in HK is something to consider…

    Precisely. You can also compare that to an even smaller city outside mainland – Singapore, where the increase is even more dramatic, and the influx was also mainly from China.

    The discontent, of course, is complex. It starts with brainwashed education from young inherited from UK, a propagandist media, heavily infiltrated foreign agents and money, cultural chauvinism (thanks @Erebus for pointing this out in another thread), special interests, genuine misgivings, plus agitation of political opposition and criminals from mainland and overseas.

    Interestingly, the “sum” of these disparate interests and objectives is still likely a minority in Hong Kong, where the silent majority is suffering under the tyranny of the extremists/terrorists.

    Yee, is that another joke? I’m a ‘rioter’? I’m ‘abusing people holding different opinions’? Hilarious! Thanks for the laugh.

    I am pointing out that the article by Vltchek was printed originally by China Daily. It is CCP propaganda, and many of the phrases have been used for months here in HK by the United Front groups. It is not a subjective piece by any measure.

    I am also rebutting the comical point made on this thread that there has not been massive immigration into the city – mostly by mainlanders. Approx. 20% of the city’s population has moved here in the past 20 years, and in the past decade the city has changed considerably. If you lived here then you would know what I mean.

    Let me add that I oppose the vandalism taking place here. I understand that the local incompetent kommunist puppets showed the people that peaceful demonstrations don’t work, but I don’t think that vandalism is the answer. Especially when it is started and/or encouraged by undercover cops.

    Hey! On the topic of incompetence, here’s some funny news: Kommunist Liaison Office hack Wang Zhimin has been kicked out!

    Hong Kong Hibernian,

    I won’t waste time arguing with you rioters… You’re a disgrace to all Chinese over the world.

    Mr. Israel Shamir said it correctly, you’re just a bunch of house niggers who want their masters back.
