I'm face blind so I didn't realize this at first but @_JesseTheGrey_ pointed out that the second person to shout #HongKongProtests was like 8 years old.

That is FUCKING disgusting.
That kid who ran out to shout was WAY too young to understand what's happening in Hong Kong, it is reasonable to assume he was coached and had a chaperone.

So where were they?
Only the Arbiter in Ourbos knows what is in a Man's heart, but it isnt unfair to assume this kid was a Political Kamikaze...
A Political Kamikaze is when an entity with #SocialCapital uses an agent that our society considers untouchable to push a message while enjoying immunity that usually comes with that class.
@RealCandaceO is one example of this, as a black woman who is paid to dunk on "black culture" (whatever that means. My dad grew up in the Queens Project and had 2 degrees and a hoard of network certs).
A more pernicious example is the purity ring some kids wear to #VirtueSignal their parents "Christian values"
#PoliticalKamikaze is a fascist tactic. It is used by cowards to shunt the consequences of their protest onto a person with greater legal protections than you.
When you protest, you are implicitly agreeing to the consequences of your protest, legal or otherwise. It's in the TOS of antifascism, the whole point of protest is to say "I care enough about this to put my safety on the line".
