    Mainland Chinese Televsion: Hongkonger are dogs

    Anybody already seen this?

    After a video of a HK man who scolds a Mainland mother because she lets her child eat and not clean up after herself on MTR, some Mainland would-be scholar goes on a hilarious tirade against HK on national TV, calling HK people "dogs", Cantonese not a language etc,...


    I just watched this with open mouth, it's amazing this was actually broadcasted all over China I'd say an apology is due!

    When I was "younger" I would have said, 'That old fart's talking a load of b**llocks'...

    Now I'm much older I refrain from typing / shooting off quick responses to such...

    BOLLOCKS




    Hm, sadly, the geezer's got a point 'bout a portion of HKers still living in tiny spaces ("cages") though...

    The newsreader seems embarrassed by this man's diatribe.

    And that pathetic Gilles was questioning why I should have a HK values vs Mainland China values thread.

    Well now you know that huge gulf in values still exist. Funny thing is, you would imagine HK government defending HK people from unwarranted (or maybe warranted) attacks by certain mainlanders like the one in that video? But nope, the HK pro-establishment figures are slamming HK people too:

    Time to nip ill-feeling in the bud - The Standard

    Perhaps Hong Kong has developed a complex after years of mainlanders coming here in large numbers and spending billions in support of local economic activities. The inflow of yuan created jobs here, but also hurt the pride of many people who used to refer to mainlanders as "Ah Chan" - a demeaning term suggesting they are uneducated, low-bred and greedy - before the mainland's mighty economic rise.
    But why are Hongkongers dissatisfied, and what are the grudges exactly about? Are locals repulsed by the thought they may lose their rice bowls to competitors from the mainland? Or angry because mainlanders have caused prices to skyrocket as they inundate the city with yuan?
    Or, more fundamentally, is it because the locals have lost a sense of prestige? Maybe all of the above have played a role, but most of it is unwarranted. Mainlanders come here to spend because Hong Kong is good, showing trust in the goods and service they can expect to get for their money.
    In this light, the community should be proud of being able to create an environment that others can't. It is dangerous to let misguided sentiments persist. As the CE candidates battle on, it would be more helpful to speak positively rather than dwell on grudges to boost their popularity. It's also time for government officials and concerned bodies to speak up.

    So according to "Mary Ma", it's all HongKongers fault, the poor and innocent mainlanders has nothing to do with it.
    Now we know where "Mary Ma" and the rest of the pro-establishment loyalties lie....
    It is also representative of the HK government mentality, it does not analysis the causes of issues but merely attack the symptoms, or in this case, trying to shoot the messenger.

    Obviously, HKers should not harbour discriminationary attitude towards mainlanders, (despite certain justifications), but as they say, it takes two to tango. Mainlanders must also learn to behave when they go to Hong Kong.

    Perhaps instead of kowtowing to the Beijing Masters, "Mary Ma" and the rest of the goverrnment should reflect and defend some core Hong Kong values? But who am I kidding?

    Speaks the truth, but just not in the most PC way.

    This is history repeating itself over and over again, tyranny of the majority. The minorities (HKers) will have to cater to the majority either by assimilation, or be destroyed. The mainlanders only want our high quality products, and uses us a a financial mediary between the rest of the world, same thing with Macau and Taiwan. That is why Hong Kong and Macau will always have their currency and will never be linked with the RMB.

    Same thing happens in Canada/United States/Australlia or anyplace that used to be a colony the minorities become part of the majority, while having their resources/assets sold or taken away, the ones that make the most money are those who do business with the majority embrace change.

    Funny thing is, the more the mainland tries to impose their culture and type of "governance" on Hong Kong, the more Hong Kong people will resist and cling stronger to their unique identity.

    When the mainlanders attack HKU's Robert Chung survey on Hong Kong identity, this was seen as an implicit attack on Hong Kong identity and values, thus a "blowback" by Hong Kongers will occur. The mainland does not understand that Hong Kong identity cannot just be snuffed out by threats and intimidation. The more they try, the more Hong Kong people will resist.

    "How did British deal with these Hong Kong Dogs? By spanking, spanking them in a raw manner".

    "I have seen most Hongkonger are lack of moral. Most of them are thieves and use whatever they can to cheat money".

    "Hong Kong is useless now".

    "No beating means no good. They can not survive without beating. One word - piece of shit".

    One good point though:

    "2 million Hongkoner live in animal cages that are smaller than 20 meter square, what can you Hongkonger be proud of? That Li Ka Shing takes 20 meter squre room and makes it as "luxury housing", it's laughable".

    Loving it!
