"I don't know if they want to keep the riot equipment at home for their own use. The rights and wrongs of recent events in Hong Kong are clear. We have noticed that more and more international mainstream media have reported the reality in Hong Kong through field interviews. For example, I have just seen the Russian media, such as the Komsomolskaya Pravda, showing the protesters holding weapons like umbrellas with knives in them and napalm bombs through several high-definition photos. Relevant reports say that some people carried out terrorist and criminal activities in the name of freedom and democracy, and that those behind the crimes are the root cause of the riots in Hong Kong. In Hong Kong, the so-called freedom of the press is absurd."

This is the greatest blasphemy to freedom, democracy, human rights, a blatant defiance of the prevailing public opinion in Hong Kong to stop violence and restore order, and a vivid revelation of their extreme hypocrisy and naked double standards."

Storyline


China urges the United States to stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs immediately, said Hua Chunying, spokeswoman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, at a press briefing in Beijing on Wednesday.

The U.S. congressional representatives announced legislation on Tuesday calling for a ban on sales of riot control equipment to Hong Kong police. Hua made the above statement when replying a question on the issue.

"I don't know if they want to keep the riot equipment at home for their own use. The rights and wrongs of recent events in Hong Kong are clear. We have noticed that more and more international mainstream media have reported the reality in Hong Kong through field interviews. For example, I have just seen the Russian media, such as the Komsomolskaya Pravda, showing the protesters holding weapons like umbrellas with knives in them and napalm bombs through several high-definition photos. Relevant reports say that some people carried out terrorist and criminal activities in the name of freedom and democracy, and that those behind the crimes are the root cause of the riots in Hong Kong. In Hong Kong, the so-called freedom of the press is absurd," said Hua.

When talking about the unequal treatment that the Hong Kong police have received, Hua put forward a series of rhetorical questions.

"I would like to ask those members of Congress in the United States: when extreme violators brutally attacked and injured the police in Hong Kong, paralyzed the airport, subway and other public transport facilities, where is the rule of law that you uphold? When the personal information of thousands of Hong Kong police officers and their families was unlawfully exposed and subjected to rampant cyber-bullying and intimidation, where are the human rights that you claim? When people with different opinions are chased, beaten, besieged, physically restrained and framed by masked men in black, where is the freedom that you preach?" asked Hua.

"On the one hand, some members of Congress in the United States glorify violent crimes as a struggle for human rights and freedom; on the one hand, they stigmatize the Hong Kong police's tolerance and restraint in law enforcement as excessive use of violence. This is the greatest blasphemy to freedom, democracy, human rights, a blatant defiance of the prevailing public opinion in Hong Kong to stop violence and restore order, and a vivid revelation of their extreme hypocrisy and naked double standards," said Hua.

Hua also raised a question about how the U.S. government and the U.S. police have treated demonstrators. She said the images of the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011, the Baltimore riots in Maryland in 2015 and the recent demonstrations in Portland are still fresh in many people's memory. So if what happened in Hong Kong took place in the United States, would these U.S. lawmakers still be so kind? Let's wait and see, she said.

Hua pointed out that it is the connivance and support of some politicians in the U.S. that have made the rioters so brazen and fearless.

"I would like to stress once again that Hong Kong affairs are China's internal affairs and no foreign government, organization or individual can interfere in them. Anyone who tries to play with fire on Hong Kong issues will only end up getting burned, setting himself on fire and suffering the consequences. We urge some people in the U.S. to stop pretending to be asleep or acting foolishly. They should stop condoning violent and criminal acts and stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs immediately," said Hua.
