Protesters Thrown Out of Parliament in Hong Kong


Police firing tear gas have evicted protesters who stormed and ransacked Hong Kong’s parliament.

Activists had occupied the Legislative Council (LegCo) building for hours after breaking away from a protest on the anniversary of Hong Kong’s transfer of sovereignty to China from Britain.

After midnight (16:00 GMT), hundreds of police secured the building following a warning to protesters to clear it.

It follows weeks of unrest in the city over a controversial extradition law.

Hundreds of thousands took part in the earlier peaceful protest – the latest rally against a proposed law that critics fear could be used to extradite political dissidents to mainland China.

The protesters have also been demanding an independent inquiry into alleged police brutality during an earlier protest on 12 June.

    Communists are always human rights abusers

  2. Le Roi du Nord

    You mean like the saudis?  Fascists?  Taliban?  Crusaders? Spanish Inquisition?

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    Facists are socialists.

    Thinking more toward theses thugs, Castro, Che, Mao, Stalin, Chavez, Mugabe when I made my comment.

    Crusaders?   They stopped the march of Islam from destroying the world.   You should thank the crusaders.   I see you are conducting revisionist history again.

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    Nope, missed again.  And I’m sure all the innocent folks murdered by the crusaders don’t feel the same way.  History really trips you up.

    “Fascism  is a form of radical right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society and of the economy which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Opposed to liberalism, marxism and anarchism, fascism is placed on the far-right within the traditional left-right spectrum”.

    Source: Larsen, Stein and Hagvedt; and Merriam-Webster.

    Left wing historians like to believe that.

    Hitler and Stalin were fast friends until socialist Hitler decided to stab his left wing buddy, Stalin in the back.

    Socialist thugs tend to war with each other.

    Learn history. Stop re-writing it. Nazi party had “socialist” in it’s very name!

    All authoritarian thuggishness is left wing, stems from its cultish belief in all powerful government.

    LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy doesn’t have time for the truth.  He’s busy with the Rainbow Family for a while.

  7. Le Roi du Nord


    Thanks for reinforcing my point that fascists aren’t socialists.

  8. dad29

    Half-right, good enough, eh?

  9. dad29

    Fascists come in all shapes and sizes, including “R” and “D”–but more often in a smaller ‘movement’ group.  This time around, regardless of the false-flag name, it’s “Antifa,” which by and large supports the left end of the “D” Party’s goals–specifically, terrorizing or “un-personing” people who are patriots and Christians or Jews and are vocal about it.

    An argument can be made that Antifa is actually anarchist, but that assumes that there is no longer-term planning for ‘what comes next’ after their anarchic revolution, and it’s difficult to believe that they haven’t mapped that out–with a dictatorship as the prize in the Cracker-Jack box.

    That scenario closely resembles the story-line of the Russian Revolution.  Unfortunately for those who defend socialism, communism is the ‘mean big brother’ of socialism, and the agnostic/atheist substrate is very strong, indeed in both of those systems.

    Thus Webster’s:  centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

    How’re things at Chequamegon, LeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy?

  10. Kevin Scheunemann

    The religion of left wing thuggishness is strong with Nord.


  11. Le Roi du Nord

    Hey, it’s your guy 45 that is snuggling up with the communist dictators, not me.  Perhaps you should be pointing that out to him.   But that would interfere with your double standards.

  12. dad29

    Oh, but wait!!  The Brownshirts served the same ends for the SOCIALIST Party of Adolf Hitler…which pretty much fills the royal straight.

    Changing the topic, LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy decries the President for building communications and decent relationships with inimical socialist tyrants (fascists).  Perhaps LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy prefers war so he can squeeze back into his fatigues, grab his M-14A1, and shoot the bastards?

    Or maybe Trump should just send $170 billion and get a worthless signature like Obozo-the-Ballerina did with Iran.

    Yah.  That worked out well.

  13. Le Roi du Nord

    That history stuff still baffles you, eh?  It looks like that old saw, ” you can’t teach an old dud new tricks” is true.

    “Nazism is a form of fascism  and showed that ideology’s disdain for liberal democracy  and the parliamentary system , but also incorporated fervent antisemitism, anti-communism, scientific racism and eugenics into its creed”.

    E. Davidson 2015, and D. Jones 2003.

    And for some interesting reading try some from W. Shirer.

  14. MjM

    Nort complains: “Nazism is a form of fascism….”

    Good Lord, man.   Find a better source than the uber-leftist Weakipedia.

    Or at least quote their article’s important stuff completely:

    National Socialism (German: Nationalsozialismus), more commonly known as Nazism (/ˈnɑːtsiɪzəm, ˈnæt-/), is the ideology and practices associated with the Nazi Party—officially the National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or NSDAP)—in Nazi Germany, and of other far-right groups with similar aims.”

    Fascists, Socialist, Nazi.   I will say that, with the exception of  “anti-communism”,  what you quoted sounds exactly like the American Democratic Party.


  15. Le Roi du Nord

    Nope, not complaining, just stating a fact.

    What part of, “and of other far-right groups with similar aims”, don’t you understand?

  16. MjM

    Nort complains again: “What part of… “

    … National Socialist German Workers’ Party = Nazi don’t you understand?

    Or perhaps your teeny brain can’t wrap around the fact that the far right is the near mirror image of leftist.

    To wit:

    “The far left and the far right also resemble each other in the way they pursue their political goals. Both are disposed to censor their opponents, to deal harshly with enemies, to sacrifice the well-being even of the innocent in order to serve a ‘higher purpose’, and to use cruel tactics if necessary to ‘persuade’ society of the wisdom of their objectives. Both tend to support (or oppose) civil liberties in a highly partisan and self-serving fashion, supporting freedom for themselves and for the groups and causes they favour while seeking to withhold it from enemies and advocates of causes they dislike.” – British Journal of Political Science, Volume 15, Issue 3, July 1985

    And while those of us on the right condemn and repudiate far right nutballs, your pals on the left praise, venerate, and even hang out with your far left crazies.

  17. dad29

    “…censoring….harshly dealing….opposition to civil liberties….”

    Look no further than Democrat “Rhinestone Cowpie” Wilson demanding prosecution for those who mock Congress-critters:

    MjM:  as you can see a few posts above, I attempted to be reasonable with LeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeRoy.  Waste of pixels, same as attempting to inform him about his scientology of AGW.
