Sasse Statement on Hong Kong

November 11, 2019

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after police shot another pro-democracy protestor in Hong Kong.

“This is why Hong Kongers have turned against the despots in the Chinese Communist Party: Beijing’s power depends on violence because they don’t give a rip about human dignity. Beijing can’t hide these images from the world. Free people everywhere stand with Hong Kong, and the Chinese Communist Party is going to discover that suppressing freedom-seekers with terror and bullets is a losing strategy.”
