Protesters damaged the US Ambassador’s car on Tuesday as it was trying to enter the embassy.

The US Ambassador to China’s car was attacked by protesters Tuesday. They also blocked the car from entering the embassy.
The LA Times reported:

The car of the U.S. ambassador to China was surrounded Tuesday by a small group of demonstrators who damaged the vehicle and briefly prevented it from entering the U.S. Embassy compound in Beijing.

A YouTube video of the incident showed the protesters chanting slogans such as “down with the U.S. imperialists” and, in an apparent reference to the Chinese government’s purchase of U.S. government debt, “return the money!”

The five-minute video shows a black car approaching the embassy and attempting to turn into the gate. As demonstrators surround the vehicle, several dozen Chinese police and uniformed guards rush to the scene. Several water bottles are thrown at the car and one man can be seen banging on the hood of the vehicle.

The security forces quickly surround the automobile and push the demonstrators away from it.

A State Department spokesperson said Ambassador Gary Locke’s car sustained minor damage but the ambassador was unharmed. The spokesperson said U.S. officials had “registered our concern” with China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The U.S. Embassy is located near the Japanese Embassy, which in recent days has been targeted by thousands of Chinese protesters voicing complaints over Tokyo’s move to purchase islands in the East China Sea that are also claimed by China.

  1. isn’t this the new world of obama love?

  2. EVERYBODY IN THE WORLD NOW KNOWS THEY CAN MURDER US AMBASSADORS AND OBAMA WILL BLAME SOME YOUTUBE POSTING BY THE WEAKEST PERSON HE CAN FIND…..SOME JUVENILE DELINQUENT BOY WITH AN EXPIRED GREEN CARD.

  3. Ha…………

    Sure, protesters attacked a car in Beijing.

  4. Looks like Choombay has a few billion chinks in his armor.

  5. I wonder what the state(d) purpose of this protesr was? I will look to see if it is ever reported any where else.

  6. Americans are following the protests/chaos in the ME more than any other campaign issue. (recent polling) Obama’s team knows he’s in big trouble now and it’s why they pulled out that audio/video of Romney at the fundraiser. They probably have more tricks up their sleeves that’ll serve to deflect from the truth of BHO’s disastrous policies. They’re desperate to change the subject and it was pathetically transparent when their lapdog media began shouting R’s statement was death to the R/R candidacy. No way. Obama’s dangerous foreign policy and economic policy are both now clearly destroying us. The “redistribution” tapes (more than one) are running now and Americans are waking up.

  7. Doesn’t look like much of an “attack”…
