Clueless Liberal Lectures Hong Kong Protesters: ‘You Value Freedom More Than Safety!’

Clearly, this lady isn’t familiar with America’s founding fathers!

A video has gone viral of a sanctimonious Western woman attempting to lecture Hong Kong freedom protesters about why resisting the Chinese government is wrong.

“Why don’t the universities get involved instead of protesting?” she asked the protesters. “What a waste of time for everybody. You guys should be enjoying your Sunday.”

“Violence breeds violence,” she said. “Find me one case where violence led to a solution.”

“You guys value freedom more than safety. I think safety is more important than freedom,” she added.

“But they’re worried about their safety here,” a reporter tried to explain to the woman.

“Look, your value system is different,” the woman responded.

The video can be seen in its full context here:

The Hong Kong protests have been going for many months, as they initially began as a revolt against an unpopular extradition bill pushed by city leader Carrie Lamb, but have since morphed into something much larger. The efforts of the freedom activists have resulted in many comparisons to the American revolution:

This bill, the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019, which was introduced on February 2019, would have made it easier to transfer fugitives to Mainland China and subject them to Chinese law.

Many of the demonstrators worried about the increased risk of Hong Kong citizens and foreign nationals passing through the city being shipped off to mainland China, where they would stand trial in Chinese courts.

Some analysts such as Agnes Chow argued that if this bill were to pass, Hong Kong “will be over.”

Lam actually yielded to the pressure and has suspended the extradition bill indefinitely. However, there is reason to believe that this bill will be making a comeback in the near feature. There is tremendous pressure from China to ram this bill through, which could put Hong Kong independence in jeopardy.

Despite Lam’s concession on Saturday, June 15, 2019, protestors continued to come out in force. On Sunday, 2 million people marched in protest demanding that Lam resign for introducing such a bill.

Since Hong Kong’s sovereignty was handed over to China in 1997, it has maintained considerable autonomy in economic and political affairs. In fact, it is ranked as the world’s freest economy according to the Heritage Foundation’s 2019 Index of Economic freedom.

However, the Beijing regime has always had plans of fully incorporating Hong Kong into its political system and turning into an appendage of the Chinese state.

Under Xi Jinping’s regime, China has undergone a politician transformation featuring some of the most advanced censorship schemes in human history. In efforts to consolidate his rule, Xi is cracking down on dissent and trying to put autonomous regions like Hong Kong under his thumb.

Should China succeed, Hong Kong could lose its vaunted status as one of the freest regions in the globe.

While it is unknown if the woman who lectured the protesters is an American citizen or not, she is clearly unfamiliar with the writings of the Founding Fathers.

“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety,” said Ben Franklin.

“I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it,” said Thomas Jefferson.
