Video captured in Hong Kong shows a white woman lecturing protesters about why “safety is more important than freedom.”
The video clip was posted on Twitter by the Passion Times.
In the video, the woman is confronted by demonstrators as she takes down protest posters.
“Why don’t the universities get involved instead of protesting?” she asks. “What a waste of time for everybody. You guys should be enjoying your Sunday.”
“Violence breeds violence,” she lectures. “Find me one case where violence led to a solution.”
The woman goes on to tell the protesters, “You guys value freedom more than safety. I think safety is more important than freedom.”
“But they’re worried about their safety here,” a reporter tells the woman.
“Look, your value system is different,” the woman insists.
Watch the video below.

Fox reporter gets earful over looting question: ‘Your ancestors profited off me and that’s repercussions’
A reporter for Fox affiliate KTTV in Los Angeles got an earful from Santa Monica residents after he asked why protesters were so upset following the police killing of George Floyd.
After apparent looting in Santa Monica on Sunday, reporter Phil Shuman asked a bystander to explain the unrest.
"It's just collective anger," the man said.
"Collective anger at what?" Shuman wondered.
"You already know," the bystander replied. "At the injustices that's been happening. Look, cops are killing people. They are breaking the rules."
"Well, one cop is accused of killing one person," Shuman interrupted.
