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. The whites dont realize these people are funded by jewish zionist backed CIA aka PAID PROTESTORS. wake up people

  2. If only China and Russia, have the old way of electing leaders, not try to be Zar or emperor our socialism can be save.

  3. 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!

  4. Americans, please stop supporting these protestors just because they wave ur flag and sing ur anthem. They are holding your people hostage at the airport. Many are unable to go back home.

  5. So foreigners are more proud to be Americans than some actual Americans. Very uplifting and sad at the same time. This is what happens when you don't appreciate what you have. Yes, I am talking to you America hating, flag kneeling, snowflake leftists!!!…

  6. Lets round up all the muslims sterilize them all and make them build our wall then March them off our property by gunpoint effective immediately then we will bring in the Patriot Chinese we lovem all

  7. The USA should open up a place for these America patriotic HKSAR youngsters to Make America Great Again. Good for the youngsters who don't want to be Chinese, good for HKSAR, good for the USA, good for China

  8. I was born in hk. Most of HK people embrace peaceful rally for freedom, but there were evidence that CCP and hk police sent people dressed up like protestors to do violent act which makes people think that the protestors are rioters. Please don't believe their lies and continue to support hk people

  9. America is always the source of instability of the world. Hope those people go to us. China no need them. Thanks n

  10. The protesters have never been peaceful, when Hong Kong was under the UK rules. The UK government does not recognise the Hong Kong residents as British, so if the US government think the Hong Kong residents wants freedom. Why don't the American government just give the green card and just accept the Hong Kong residents to start a new life, the rioters are caused by the American government. Their aim is to destabilise Hong Kong ….

  11. Usa should be proud. One country in the world show usa flag and chants usa attempts. I thing hong Kong need help from usa.

  12. wow! what a way to gat attention by showing the American flag by protestors ! How did they smuggle those flags into Hong Kong? The protestors don t want Carrie Lam to rest at all! Truth is NO COUNTRY IS FREE. JUST SOME FREEDOMS IN AMERICA, NOT ALL. WITH THE NWO CREEPING IN WHO KNOWS WHAT S NEXT. MUSLIMS TOOK OVER A GOOD PERCENT OF EUROPE, AND CANADA . IS THERE REALLY HOPE IN MAN OR ALMIGHTY GOD ANS HIS SON!

  13. Kind of feel bad for Hong Kong people, they got a taste of democratic freedom for years, now communist just marching in and take all that away

  14. It’s like trump the controlling part of government doesn’t want real Americans. Too have say . Trump 2020 all in I am

  15. Hong Kong protesters waving American flags as a symbolic reference to the independence America had from Britain, Hong Kong does not want to have greater freedoms they want independence from China and communism in general

  16. We hongkongers are growing increasingly hopeless after years of oppression by evil CCP communists 😔We plea for people in the free world to help us

  17. Has anyone ever calculated the victims of capitalism? Oh wait, no, capitalist producers don't allow this info on the "free world" mass media ))))

  18. will happily trade our millions of undocumented mexicans waving mexican flags for all the Hong Kong 🇭🇰 citizens who love America

  19. HK's local Cantonese love freedom, hate communism. It is not even a secret after many years of British influence. Star and Spangled Banner represent symbol of freedom and liberty for individual, nothing unusual about that for most of the people except the commies.

  20. This is one of the many reasons why we should respect our own American flag. A symbol of freedom not just in the US but throughout the world. If someone is switching our flag with another flag (Mexican flag) like what happened in Aurora, Colorado that person should be punished by treason.

  21. the extradition bill is just a red herring. if they are so worry about being extradited to china , how come so many of these so called 20% of population still go to China and Macau. And even more of them go the Thailand, Philippines, south Korea etc for holidays. all of them have extradition treaty with china. go figure.

  22. Stop focusing so much on foreign freedoms and worry about our very own constitution. The world still looks to us as the standard so we should preserve what we have. This should start with our leaders respecting the law. I'm drawing no party lines here, Hillary should have obeyed the subpoenas and Trump should as well. They all act as our kings and do not respect the constitution nor the separation of powers. People seem to belong to one side or the other because of hate for the other side. They believe misinformation and are bound to their fellow party members not by principal, but by hate of the other side. This is why many leaders are never held accountable for their lawless actions. If you find yourself hating the other side, you might want to consider the propaganda machines, on both sides, that have shaped your hate. People are people, if we are divided, it's already over. It IS, what it IS, and stop covering for "Your Guy, or gal" and excusing any behavior or action just because you are rooting for that side.

  24. Get a grip, that wasn't a spontaneous salute to the US. I was just there, I've walked these streets countless times, I know what the Cantonese look, sound and act like. Sure there are geniune people from the Kong here. But there are hundreds of foreigners intermingled within the crowd. Mostly Chinese from Austrial" Taiwan' and of course the good ole US of A. My friends and I began studying the crowd. We saw pockets, what on first notice appeared to be, 20 – 30 middle age white women. Appeared to be part of friends and familt traveling abroad. But upon closer inspection. Something was out of sorts. Cant pinpoint what it was, but the way they moved through the crowd, seemed choreographed. Anyway caught severalbof these groups moving ackwardly the crowds. I have video if youd like to see it. I support the protest", but i hope Western powers arent involved. But im sure the Chinese government has. My telephone iis acting up. I gotta go

  25. USA must extend an open invitation to ALL these protesters to migrate to USA! At least these guys know the US national anthem whilst most Americans don’t!

  26. I wonder what our liberals think when they see American flags waving in communist China? Does it give them pause at all?

  27. Brought a tear to my eye. God bless those brave people. I only hope that we could help in some way. Breaks my heart knowing what's about to happen to the poor folks. Take witness to the carnage communism brings.

  28. They wave the American flag hoping to get attention to the U S about their desire to retain their freedoms. In America,the little soy fed marxists burn our flag hoping to usher in their "dictatorship of the proletariat".
    They are half way into the yoke of oppression and are trying not to be put completely into that harness.

  29. This is not exactly helpful against China’s accusation that this protest is being orchestrated by the CIA. We have to wonder if these people are mainland Chinese agents.

  30. President Trump wanted to buy Greenland from Denmark. Instead of trying to buy Greenland, President Trump should buy Hong Kong. Win-Win Cheers!

  31. Are you crazy or stupid, the flag they are raising is “Hong Kong Independency”. This is politics and not human rights…..

  32. So many social justice warriors in the comments… If you real care about HK and want to know what’s really happening, please go and search on youtube how those “protesters” bully HK residents and HK police.

  33. Comon FOX. You are better than this. This is not balanced reporting. There complex local issues that you are glossing over. You have no idea about life, freedom and historical background. Please STOP this. Do you research and present the facts. Don't make incorrect and sweeping statements.

  34. Trying to get some support there. Waved British flag but turns out British wasn't able to help so tried American flag
