    Hong Kong Activists Halt Protests to Remember 9/11

    Class... I say kick out all the America hater's and those only wanting a free ride and let these folks immigrate...


    Hong Kong activists announced on Wednesday that protests would be suspended to observe the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States.

    China’s state-run media accused the protesters of planning 9/11-style terrorist attacks themselves, complete with photos of the planes hitting the World Trade Center in 2001.

    “In solidarity against terrorism, all forms of protest in Hong Kong will be suspended on Sept. 11, apart from potential singing and chanting,” protest organizers said in a statement.

    The statement went on to denounce Beijing’s state-run China Daily for a Facebook post warning that “anti-government fanatics are planning massive terror attacks, including blowing up gas pipes, in Hong Kong on September 11.”

    “The 9/11 terror plot also encourages indiscriminate attacks on non-native speakers of Cantonese and starting mountain fires. This leaked information was part of the strategy being schemed by radical protesters in their online chat rooms,” China Daily claimed.

    The incendiary post was illustrated with a photo of al-Qaeda’s hijacked planes slamming into the World Trade Center on 9/11.

    China Daily responded to widespread outrage over the post by publishing a screenshot that purportedly showed protesters using the encrypted messaging service Telegram to discuss “killing people if their demands are not met,” as the South China Morning Post characterized it.

    The Chinese Communist paper refused to offer any proof for their specific claim of a 9/11 terrorist plot in Hong Kong or answer any other questions about their assertions. Facebook refused requests for comment on whether China Daily’s post violated its policies.

    Hong Kongers responded to the China Daily smear by calling it disrespectful, “horribly wrong,” and “inflammatory propaganda.” Some wondered if the Chinese Communist Party might actually try to stage a terrorist attack with “undercover actors” and blame it on the protest movement.

    “We don’t even need to do a fact check to know that this is fake news,” a young protester told Reuters. “The state media doesn’t care about its credibility. Whenever something they claimed to have heard on WhatsApp or friends’ friends, they will spread it right away.”

    “When they try to frame the whole protest with those words, it alarms me. They are predicting rather than reporting,” another protester said, praising the decision to suspend activity on 9/11 as a “nice move.”

    “We honor those who died in the attacks, and all those sacrificed in the fight against all forms of terrorism,” said a supporter responding to the statement that protests would be paused. Other supporters noted the movement has been very pro-American and eager to enlist U.S. assistance against mainland Chinese tyranny, so it would be unimaginably foolish to behave in an offensive manner on 9/11.

    The protest movement does not have central leadership – an attribute that has helped it endure for months – so the 9/11 pause was essentially implemented by circulating the statement calling for one on social media.

    Chinese media doesn't sound all that different than our media!
    People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance but that is common amongst those who have never accomplished anything in their lives and who have always played it safe not willing to risk failure.

    More Than 300 Members Of Congress Blow Off 9/11 Moment Of Silence

    Wednesday morning on the steps of the House, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) led a brief ceremony to commemorate the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. More than 100 members of Congress stood with the two-party leaders and observed a moment of silence.

    More than 300, however, did not take part in the ceremony. And the no-shows drew the ire of Whoopi Goldberg. Wednesday on The View, Goldberg slammed the House members who skipped out on the commemoration.

    “Apparently only 26 percent of House members showed up to the moment of silence on the steps of the Capitol this morning,” Goldberg said.

    “Shameful,” colleague Meghan McCain said.
