"These are glaring double standards. You can see how the U.S. deals with riots on its own soil. Their police use live ammunition in response to common street crimes and robberies, not to mention in riots. So why are they accusing Hong Kong police of violating human rights by using tear gas when dispersing rioters? What about the rights of the American people then? Do all these people deserve to be shot dead? The U.S. can't even manage its own affairs properly, so why are they interfering with ours?"

Storyline


The United States is receiving major backlash over its interference in Hong Kong's internal affairs, with scholars criticizing the U.S. of double standards and in no position to lecture others on freedom and democracy.

The U.S. has been interfering China's internal affairs in Hong Kong with the recent signing of the so-called Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, with some of its prominent politicians also publicly backing rioters in Hong Kong.

A scholar and member of a Hong Kong political organization said the U.S. is applying double standards to Hong Kong's handling of the riots.

"These are glaring double standards. You can see how the U.S. deals with riots on its own soil. Their police use live ammunition in response to common street crimes and robberies, not to mention in riots. So why are they accusing Hong Kong police of violating human rights by using tear gas when dispersing rioters? What about the rights of the American people then? Do all these people deserve to be shot dead? The U.S. can't even manage its own affairs properly, so why are they interfering with ours?" said Innes Tang, Co-Chairman of the PolitiHK Social Strategic.

The Chinese foreign ministry once again criticized the actions of the U.S. on Monday, asking it to focus on its own human rights issues.
