A series of emotional fake news swept Hong Kong ravished with unrests by the Black Bloc and what many slowly refer to as the revolt of Hong Kong’s middle class. The tragic accident that killed 22-year old technology student Chow Tsz-lok after falling to his death in a car park is blamed on the police. The death is tragic and senseless. Politicizing the death as Demosisto does, is tasteless and disgusting.
Police had fired multiple rounds of teargas nearby, but security footage showed that police had not fired heavy rounds of the gas in the car park before Chow fell. (The Guardian)
The fact that the Hong Kong police left the car park is lost in the stage-managed response by the rioters, such as Demosisto. In war the first casualty is the truth and Hong Kong are certainly no exception to the rule.
Demosisto, determined to obtaining independence from the mainland was quick to activate the spin machine and alleges “the police allegedly pushed the dead to fall”. So far this is false. Period.
Since Greek and Latin is a preferred claim of fame, the Greek verb demos means village, and sisto in Latin means also to appear in court. So, the very little associated with democracy or other heroic causes but more like a villager appearing in court?
The fellowship of the youngsters is a social tribe led by Gerontocrats which is a form of oligarchical rule meaning an entity is ruled by leaders who are significantly older than most of the adult population.
The oligarchs like Jimmy Lai Chee-ying is in his 70s, Dr. Robert Chung Ting-yiu is 61, Anson Maria Elizabeth Chan Fang On-sang is 79, and Cardinal Zen Ze-kiun is 87. The second-tier leaders are in their 50’s.
The upcoming generation of gentiles so far take no responsibility for the violent action and destruction caused by their generation. It will dawn on them soon the costs for the damages to economy caused by them are theirs to settle.
What are the Gerontocrats and Demosisto suggesting? The current UK legal process is flawed?
After all the Hong Kong Police is part of the UK legal traditions. Suzette Foo the Senior Superintendent for Kowloon East in her emotional press conference calls for a court of coroner’s inquiry into the tragic death was shouted down social media.
Not very democratic, and definitely a display of poor judgment by the ambitious RTHK reporter Nabela Qoser hunting for scalps. Lo Kin-hei, another fanatic, is quick to seed public ill-will and hate in social media. Increasingly voices in Hong Kong calling for a stronger response on hate speech. Domestically many citizens are fed up with the rioters.
Fake News & Hate
Falsehood is falsehood regardless of the mantle and flag you wear. Hence the response by Agnes Chow, Nathan Law, Joshua Wong and Jeffrey Ngo is another of the many examples spreading hate and fake news in the public generating hate and ill-will.
But “Schadenfreude” or not, we forget Chow Tsz-lok death is a product of the Demisisto and elitist ideology.
Wong in an interview with Deutsche Welle in Berlin saw nothing wrong with violence. Wong claims the SAR and Beijing must be held accountable, unfortunately like many other true believers, he does not walk the talk and avoids the notion he is to be held accountable. Joshua Wong is an extremist.
It is unlike the red/green Guards acknowledging their responsibility of the death of Chow Tsz-lok. It would require humility.
Wong a self-proclaimed fan Spiderman fan, and his demo-hipsters sucking milk-tea are now faced with the consequence of their actions. With great power comes great responsibility is not just a movie line, it actually was used in 1793 by the French National Conventions but I am sure Joshua Wong knows that little fun fact.
Death is now the political new reality for Wong and his devotees for years to come. Demosisto will be held accountable. Many political pro’s warn Wong, of “Beware of the day of moral reckoning, don’t overdo it”.

The interview quoted by the media tribe was an interrogation by the Hong Kong-born Nabela Qoser, who speaks Cantonese like the noodle seller on the corner, originally from TVB and Ming Pao, now with the Hong Kong based RTHK has a history of journalistic sensationalism.
A graduate from the Baptist University in Hong Kong the scalp hunter now working at RTHK is the public broadcasting service of Hong Kong. Her questioning sounds like a leftist Spanish inquisitor having a cardiac arrest, concludes the guilt of the accused.
Compassion of journalist like Qoser seem not a quality many local journalists in Hong Kong possess.
Demosisto just regurgitating with Schadenfreude the fact that the Hong Kong police can not comment on-going investigations. Wong and his fellowship fail to recognize the UK legal system still applies. And yes, it applies to all citizens of Hong Kong reporters included.
Officials are obviously overrun by the onslaught of the local Indian girl who sounds more like an activist than a reporter. Cutting in during the reply, accusatory claims, false claims, personalization and discrediting is the new trend. Amplified by the years of agitation training the media today are a product of a cult of hate.
Nabela Qoser is a credit to her trade but a discredit to the truth. But, the truth shall set us free, right?
Many in Hong Kong are increasingly whispering what many are afraid to say out loud. Are today’s new green /black guardians the same fanatics like the Hitler Youth, Mao’s red Guards or the Latin American leftists pursuing religious radicalism of Liberation Theology?
The tragic death of the student is fast becoming political cannon fodder for sensationalism and dubious agendas. The media arbitrator of fairness is not better than the mob. Gore and grossness, disrespect to pursue an agenda lacks balance and respect.
The tragic death of the student is fast becoming political cannon fodder for sensationalism and dubious agendas.
The truth is conveniently pushed aside to push a blame narrative to support an independent inquiry of the police. The truth is raped regularly by media outlets who served the elites in Hong Kong.
According to activists the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) is hosting a Indian visiting research fellow who in his own words is the founder of the Extinction Rebellion Hong Kong. UK police arrested the UK leadership of this extremist faction in mid-October after it become evident the extremists became a threat to public safety.
It is unclear what is the relationship between the Hong Kong leaders and the UK leadership and if the presence of the extremists in Hong Kong is investigated by the police. The free press seems not grasping the relationship between hate ideologies and remain largely mum. Police officials contacted were unwilling to comment on ongoing investigations.
Reports and videos suggest the student lost his grip and did not realize the 3rd floor had no landing before leaping to his untimely death. Police did not chase the youngster in what is sadly, likely the product of paranoid fears created in the climate of distrust by the rioters and sad circumstances.
Hong Kong is ripe and fake news and phrases like, democracy, freedom, police suppression, Nazi’s, which are a product of a long incubation of narratives ongoing since 2016.
An old favorite is the “Gulag” rumor, originated in the cold war alleging the Hong Kong Police is shipping detained rioters up “north”. Linguistically, “going up north, going up the river” is an American phrase but was in use against the Russian during the Cold War. So are references to the Polish independent movement, or allegations of police torture.
The media as the guardian of truth is fast becoming the whores of agendas that lack compassion and sense of proportion of the truth.
Not everything is a spin, not everything as an angle. Only extremists follow that path. This applies to reporters, Demosisto and its elites who started that fire.
May Chow Tsz-lok and Hong Kong find the peace it needs.
