January 6th, local time, supporters of US President Trump violently broke into the Capitol and clashed with the police.
BBC reporter Grace Tsoi defended the United States in an article on the evening of January 7, claiming that the capture of the Legislative Council of Hong Kong and the United States Congress had “important differences” except for superficial similarities.
In response, Liang Zhenying, vice chairman of the National Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference and former Chief Executive of Hong Kong, refuted it one by one in Facebook late at night on the 7th, sarcasmizing the reporter’s level is too low.
Liang Zhenying also helped the reporter summarize four arguments he wanted to express: “The people who captured the Legislative Council of Hong Kong were unarmed, the United States was a democratic country, the voice of demonstrators in Hong Kong had been ignored, and the U.S. Congress was in session at that time.”
In response, Leung Chun-ying asked Grace Tsoi in a Facebook post, “How do you know that the demonstrators in Hong Kong are not armed in their backpacks? Hong Kong police found a large number of guns and bombs during the “anti-amendment” campaign. What does Yongwu do?”
Liang Zhenying said, “A large number of Trump supporters believe that the election is fraudulent and not democratic.
Moreover, can the police of democratic countries shoot demonstrators in this way? If demonstrators in an “undemocratic” society can rush into the legislature, you should tell Hong Kong people before 1997 to let us people in an “undemocratic” society rush into the Legislative Council of Hong Kong and Britain.
Liang Zhenying said that Trump supporters have been demanding a new vote, and their voices have been ignored.
He also asked rhetorically, if American demonstrators rushed into the adjourned Capitol, do you really believe that the National Guard of the United States will exercise the same restraint as the Hong Kong police?
At the end of the article, Liang Zhenying said that I don’t question the position of Grace Tsoi, because everyone can have their own position, “but Miss Cai’s level is too low.”
On the 6th local time, Trump supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol and clashed with the police.
On the 7th, Leung Chun-ying mentioned that demonstrators were shot dead in a Facebook post.
He said, “As a demonstrastrator, you would rather demonstrate in Hong Kong than in the United States.”
Liang Zhenying also asked “pan-democratic” in a Facebook post on the 7th: “You keep pursuing the American system, saying that the regime is smoothly transferred, what you say you can correct yourself, and what you say that there are mobs who invaded the Legislative Council because Hong Kong has no democracy.
Please think about it again this morning (7th).”
Just yesterday (7th), when the whole world was watching the “democratic” riots in Washington and watching how Trump supporters rushed into the U.S. Capitol to demand “true democracy”, a CNN reporter found that the scene in front of him was similar to the scene of the impact on the Hong Kong Legislative Council in 2019, so he was in the news agency.
The online post was posted on the media account and the picture comparison was made.
This move has angered a large number of Hong Kong rioters on overseas social networks.
A large number of rioters and their supporters asked the CNN reporter to “delete posts”, saying that this kind of comparison of their “democracy movement” with what happened in the United States was “totally wrong”.
