Chinese Citizens Beat Government Bureaucrats During Mass Riot (“Kill them! Kill them!” chanted mob)
Epoch Times ^ | 4-20-2014 | Lu Chen

Posted on 04/21/2014 5:37:11 PM PDT by equalator

It was a dramatic and violent reversal to the usual order of events when notorious urban officials, called chengguan in Chinese, get into conflicts with street vendors and pedestrians.The crowd saw Mr. Huang being attacked, and decided to intervene. Online rumours then rapidly proliferated that “someone was beaten to death by chengguan,” which intensified public anger and drove more people to the scene.

“someone was beaten to death by chengguan,” which intensified public anger and drove more people to the scene-

"When the chengguan attempted to hightail it out of the crowd in their van, they were surrounded."

"The men were dragged out of the van and beaten senseless by the mob."

I hope the Chinese officials take note that the Christians communities never do this despite the abusive treatment they receive.

Coming soon to countries all over the world, especially one near YOU, in the defiance of suffocating and insufferable politicians, bureaucrats and other associated criminals, psychopaths, and losers who desire to run your life and steal your property.

Heartwarming to see that even after decades of vicious government oppression Chinese citizens are still prepared to fight back against their oppressors and teach government workers a few manners.

Pity so few citizens in the so-called free west have the same sort of courage.

For most Chinese, this is exactly is why stability is important. Scenes like this remind them of the most brutal, lawless and chaotic days of the so-called Cultural Revolution. The Chinese government will not react well.

It might have been a blood bath. Chinese totalitarians are usually the ones who start that, however.

There is a reason Chinese leaders have used brutality to rule for the last 5000 years.

“Such tragedies have happened again and again in recent years,” said Duan Xingyan, a user of Weibo who identified himself as a police officer. “The root reason is the severe lack of rule of law in our society.”

Yea, it’s because the totalitarian Chicom regime has been too lenient.

It would lead to horrific violence.

Despite being an ancient civilization, the Chinese people themselves are woefully under-civilized.

Many drew a comparison to the case of Xia Junfeng, also a street vendor, who was executed for “intentional homicide” last September after he stabbed two chengguan to death during a clash. Xia said in testimony that he was fighting for his life as the chengguan set about violently beating him.

“Such tragedies have happened again and again in recent years,” said Duan Xingyan, a user of Weibo who identified himself as a police officer. “The root reason is the severe lack of rule of law in our society.”

Yes the disintegration of the rule of law where the law applies to some but not so much to others builds slowly in people anger and resentment.

And it is just this sort of lawlessness that our president is working diligently to produce in our country. His refusal to prosecute those who commit election fraud, his biased prosecution of hate crimes, his incitement of racial hatred and his refusal to enforce our immigration laws all are building an atmosphere of lawlessness in this country.

“Or just wait until they break down or get stuck on bad roads.”

Precisely!

People get hung up at looking at those behemoths and think “what could we do against that?” To which the answer is you don’t have to do anything, just wait until the guy inside has to get out to relieve himself or to get a bite to eat.

Better yet find out where he lives, where his kids go to school. Who is the local supplier that provides his gasoline, who is the maintenance man that keeps this thing on the roads, where does he live? The secretary that sends out the requisition forms for supplies, where does she live, what bus does she take home at night? Does the boss of the armored car guy have a favorite restaurant, a girlfriend on the side?

It’s standard guerrilla procedure. Guerrillas don’t attack the tanks, they attack the train tracks on which the tanks are delivered, they shoot the drivers of the trains. Trust me you won’t have to shoot that many until the oppressors are all living in concrete bunkers and having their food and beer flown in by helicopter and their garbage and excrement flown out by the same helicopter.

It won’t be too pleasant for them and they soon get the message.

The EBT crowd is always a consideration but 40% of the US is on the EBT cards. Most people don’t have much set aside and it wont take long for them to go out and see what they can steal.

When the EBT goes down, so does the Govt. It’s why they strive to keep it up. What was that recent report? Something like 70% of the country now living paycheck to paycheck? Hard to stockpile food when you have no cash.

So that 3-4 days will happen within 2 weeks tops.

Stores will be emptied day 1 and no restock coming means bad times for those that cause it.

"The men were dragged out of the van and beaten senseless by the mob."

The ruling class and tyrannical governments generally never learn until it's too late for them.

All the kings men, they're hired guns etc., always think they can control it.

History generally shows they quickly find they are way overwhelmed by the numbers...

Guerrilla warfare is what Americans sorely need to learn and understand. Having weaponry and ammo is just one part of the equation. If(?) the SHTF, embracing now regarded dirty and disgusting tactics will mean all the difference between victory for the Republic or an agonizing loss, enslaving our descendants for many long and terrible years to come.
