That is great stuff right there.
Hong Kong activists announced on Wednesday that protests would be suspended to observe the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
China’s state-run media accused the protesters of planning 9/11-style terrorist attacks themselves, complete with photos of the planes hitting the World Trade Center in 2001.
“In solidarity against terrorism, all forms of protest in Hong Kong will be suspended on Sept. 11, apart from potential singing and chanting,” protest organizers said in a statement.
The statement went on to denounce Beijing’s state-run China Daily for a Facebook post warning that “anti-government fanatics are planning massive terror attacks, including blowing up gas pipes, in Hong Kong on September 11.”
“The 9/11 terror plot also encourages indiscriminate attacks on non-native speakers of Cantonese and starting mountain fires. This leaked information was part of the strategy being schemed by radical protesters in their online chat rooms,” China Daily claimed.
The incendiary post was illustrated with a photo of al-Qaeda’s hijacked planes slamming into the World Trade Center on 9/11.
