And if you're going to strawman me from your very first sentence, then this isn't even a conversation. It's just you expounding your version of reality, which may or may not have any real relevance.
As a matter of fact, I do hit up a number of news outlets and group participation sites to get my raw news and opinions, which I then do my best to ponder and digest. I do try to gather a full perspective of views from across the world, as contributed directly by hundreds of people, and indirectly by millions. All that is credit to the enormous power of the internet, and by a fundamental distrust of anything that seems remotely like an echo chamber, like living in China.
Anyway, feel free to hit me up with whatever sources you have exposing the darker sides of the protesters. Meanwhile, if you're looking for a landslide of HK police abuse videos and analysis, r/China is probably a good place to start. If you're looking for a groupthink echo chamber to confirm what you already believe, r/Sino would be more approriate.
Also, let's not forget that the CCP is always trying to censor and manipulate the message, especially to its own citizens and former citizens. Casting the protesters as the troublemakers is directly what they're trying to do, regardless of how true or not true that actually is. If you're not able to recognise and understand that methodology, there really isn't the slightest reason to have a conversation here.
Indeed, the reaction to the Morey tweet is their typical 'hurt feelings' and hysterical outrage over a single contradictory POV. Because, notice-- instead of countering with evidence & facts, they're reacting like the bullies and thugs they are-- which is 100%, instantaneous censorship and economic retribution.
If you can't understand how petty and absurd that looks to the rest of the world, then I'd say you still have some adjustment to go through in your new country.
