Hong Kong on the March


An estimated 1.7 million people in Hong Kong – a quarter of the population – defied police orders to stage a peaceful march after a rally in a downtown park, after two months of increasingly violent clashes that have prompted severe warnings from Beijing and failed to win concessions from the city’s government.

Huge crowds filled Victoria Park on Sunday afternoon and spilled on to nearby streets, forcing police to block traffic in the area. Torrential rain came down an hour into the rally, turning the park into a sea of umbrellas. At the same time, protesters walked towards Central, the heart of Hong Kong’s business district, and surrounded government headquarters.

    I love it.  throwing off their leftist/communist oppressors.

    If we could only be that brave in U.S. against liberals.

    Well k, put your money where your mouth is; stand in front of a tank; enlist in the military, etc.  Lots of opportunities out there.

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    Standing in front of you, tank or no tank, seems to be an unpleasant prospect.

    I would urge you not to hurt others with your hurtful ideology through words.

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    So what hurtful things would those be….?

  5. Kevin Scheunemann

    Advocacy of big government, big regulation, big taxes.   sympathy for the communist/socialist ideology of the left.   Supporting the victim heirarchy politics of the left, etc.

    Shall I go on?

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    Since you are such a stickler for exact quotes, could you provide anything to back up my advocacy for any of the above.  Remember, the exact quote, and in context.  Follow your own rules.

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    Why are we starting with that now?


  8. Le Roi du Nord

    So you won’t abide by the rules you set forth for others?  And I’m sure you don’t see the irony, hypocrisy and double standards in your position, right?

  9. Kevin Scheunemann

    When you follow that rule, then you can demand that standard.

    Don’t be so hard on yourself.   You can always change.

    Clock is ticking. Apologize to Kevin and leave.
