  1. ✋ we 🇺🇸 stand with Hong Kong and freedom🙏 peace and success for protesters against China's takeover

  2. Vandalizing and destroying public and private property, harming civilians and police alike, Killing a person and setting another on fire, and acquiring ammunition and explosives. Protesters. Sure. Just another shameless news agency.

  3. So HKr0aches start vandalizeing HSBC??? It is a British multinational investment bank. I thought these r0aches love their colonial master.
