Hong Kong Protesters, Waving American Flags, Also Sang Our National Anthem

Demonstrators this weekend pleaded for help in liberating the city of Chinese rule

America will always be the symbol of freedom.

Even though the entrenched federal government in Washington, D.C., can be a murky, smelly swamp, the good people of this country stand for freedom and justice — and no swamp creatures will ever change that.

As a beacon of hope, America has influenced the protesters in Hong Kong, who are pleading with President Donald Trump to help them in their fight against tyrannical Chinese rule.

The protesters took to the streets this weekend waving American flags.

Many of them belted out “The Star-Spangled Banner” in the hope of grabbing President Trump’s attention.

“Police in Hong Kong sprayed tear gas to break up protesters who assembled in the busy shopping district on Sunday,” The Daily Caller noted, “after demonstrators at the U.S. Consulate pleaded for President Trump to liberate the city of Chinese rule, according to Reuters.”

“Protesters set fires, shattered windows and vandalized the metro station, leaving the central district which consists of banks, jewelry shops and top-brand shopping galleries in devastation … At one point during the demonstrations, protesters sang ‘The Star Spangled Banner.'”

Violence is never the answer — but watch the video of the protesters singing our national anthem below.

This weekend was the 14th consecutive weekend of protests in the financial district of the city, as the Caller also pointed out.
