Such remarks distort th上海后花园which is that it is the

 criminal actions of the demonstrators that are denying democracy and freedom to law-abiding Hong Kong residents.

And although Washington has repeatedly denied playing any role in the violent demonstrations in Hong Kong, the ill-inten上海后花园

tioned remarks from these prominent US political figures belies both those denials, since they have incited

Meanwhile, the agitators and insurrectionists in Hong Kong should discard an
