Earlier today around admiralty - Hong Kong police using a baton to beat up a protestor who wasn’t even resisting..He wasn’t even running! 😠seeing a lot of violence coming out of HK in the last few hours..Seems like it’s brutal day for the Hongkongers.

Alleged undercover #HongKongPolice disguised as protesters stirred up chaos with their extendable batons.

They were later chased by protesters & allegedly opened fire at the scene as heard in the video.

No casualties reported..

⚠️ The “#YellowObject” ⚠️

From #Rawanda, we know dehumanization is used to incite #genocide.

RTLM radio incited Hutus vs. Tutsi minority, calling Tutsis “inyenzi,” or “cockroaches.”

Now #HKPolice call #HongKong #HKprotesters “objects.”

h/t @lihkg_forum
… Even if the “#YellowObject” in question is wearing a yellow vest, for a white guy to call a #HongKong protestor a “yellow object” is — at best — nothing short of accidental racism.

It’s crazy that #HKPolice just watch as their Superintendent spews dehumanizing hate speech…
#Hitler’s Nazis used the term “Untermensch” — “subhuman” — to describe Jews, Roma, Slavic people, Africans, #LGBT people, etc.

They borrowed this epithet from Ku Klux Klan member Lothrop Stoddard.

#YellowObject” only reinforces the perception of #HKPolice as “#ChiNazi.”
