    No you are the one who knows nothing. Peaceful protest parades were never suppressed during British rule. After the 80s all protests didn't require police consent. Within seconds after the handover in 1997, CCP amended the law and give the police the authority to ban protest. As a result, almost all peaceful protests in HK in recent months have been banned by the Police and they use tear gas to disperse crowds every single time. Then it got violent. This is blatant infringement to our civil liberties.

    And Hong Kong had already achieved a de-facto universal suffrage on the legislature in 1995. Then Beijing dissolved the council and replaced it with a compeltely undemocratic one within seconds after the handover.

    I am much more knowledgeable than you about HK.

    No you don't, the brittish implemented it in 1995 more as a **** you to China than actually because of wanting to give freedom to HK ppl. They implemented it 2 years before HK handover just to screw with the CCP. MEANWHILE brittish ppl have been free to elect and have representation for over 100yrs during that period while HK ppl were treated like dogs, double standards right?

    If China really "wants to give freedom to HK people", then why did they have to replace to totally democratic legislature with a totally undemocratic one?

    Because we didn't have democracy in the past, THAT'S WHY WE WANT DEMOCRACY NOW!

    Let's take this to D&D.

    Your understanding of Freedom is a suspect ...
    There are privileges and then there are rights.

    I remember her/him when comes to basketball comments. Seemed to be rational.

    Reminds me of an article on new yorker about the anatomy of riot, the psyche of it. When there is only one or two on the street, everyone else is just a by-passer, and when there is a critical mass, everyone starts to join.

    Years ago, I asked a Korean co-worker that joined the anti-government movement why he joined. He said it was simple, it began with the peer pressure and then someone close got hurt. It then became irrational and personal.

    No clear agenda, except for separating from China and calling everyone from China "you" this and that. This is what I saw. A bunch of fanatic and naive kids. Bunch of BS behind the Media too analogizing themselves to independence movement from severe oppression. At the moment, they are more like the red guards at Tiananmen square. If they take their masks off, I will have more respect.

    Ash, it takes blood for you to get "free".

    that HK bastard didn't just kill someone. The bastard murdured his HK girlfriend because his girlfriend got pregnant. The poor girl asked for a marriage. the bastard murdered the poor girl at Taiwan and fled back to HK.

    HK government wanted to set up the extradition bills to bring justice on that bastard. The rioters protected that bastard with slogans like "human rights" or "Freedom".

    Never apologize to people who don't believe in forgiveness.

    i dont understand why morey would comment on this. he had to have known china would not be pleased with it. this is a losing battle. he has no political pull. china is going to run things how they want no matter what some basketball GM thinks, so why pick a side when your business is so heavily intertwined with china ? powerful people can influence change here, but not there so leave that sh!t alone daryl!!!!

    i hope he doesn't get fired, but that was not smart move at all. i also hate the way we kiss china's ass, but his tweet isn't helping there, and is only hurting us here.

    Much bigger deal than some initially here thought. To China it was much more than an individual making a statement.

    Those are mutually exclusive thoughts. You hate kissing ass to China except when we do.

    what I am trying to say is, i don't consider NOT commenting on that situation kissing ass, but now we HAVE to kiss ass because he did, and isnt going to change a thing over there, but we may end up firing a good GM over it.

    Hilarious. You don't even know what the protests in HK are about at all.

    Since you might be censored to know the real reasons it continues, I'll share the actual demands with you:
    1. Full withdrawal of the extradition bill

    2. A commission of inquiry into alleged police brutality

    3. Retracting the classification of protesters as “rioters”

    4. Amnesty for arrested protesters

    5. Dual universal suffrage, meaning for both the Legislative Council and the Chief Executive

    This is your team Tilman. The Rockets are not run by the Chinese government or the pressure from the Chinese government.

    The Chinese citizens still love the Houston Rockets. Nothing changed in their hearts. Keep Morey for them.

    Say no to bullies.
