All the US politicians and pundits and social media virtue signalers who are quick to windbag opine on Hong Kong protests are quiet on Chile and Barcelona this week where brutal rioters are destroying their cities and police are aggressively cracking down.

besides being protests, what do they have in common? I support free speech but it isn't clear to me what I should be rooting for in Chile and Barcelona

I suppose it's possible that political situations vary from country to country and sometimes situations that seem similar from a superficial perspective are actually more nuanced? ...nah, can't be that.

Not the same at all. Chile and Barcelona do not have free speech, freedom of movement, etc implications. Democracy is messy and protests are different than riots.
