The New York Times isn’t content to undermine the Trump administration.
It also wants to undermine the Chinese government by worrying about the human rights of Muslim terrorists in Xinjiang in western China.
“HONG KONG — The students booked their tickets home at the end of the semester, hoping for a relaxing break after exams and a summer of happy reunions with family in China’s far west.
Instead, they would soon be told that their parents were gone, relatives had vanished and neighbors were missing — all of them locked up in an expanding network of detention camps built to hold Muslim ethnic minorities.
The authorities in the Xinjiang region worried the situation was a powder keg. And so they prepared.
The leadership distributed a classified directive advising local officials to corner returning students as soon as they arrived and keep them quiet. It included a chillingly bureaucratic guide for how to handle their anguished questions, beginning with the most obvious: Where is my family?
The directive was among 403 pages of internal documents that have been shared with The New York Times in one of the most significant leaks of government papers from inside China’s ruling Communist Party in decades. They provide an unprecedented inside view of the continuing clampdown in Xinjiang, in which the authorities have corralled as many as a million ethnic Uighurs, Kazakhs and others into internment camps and prisons over the past three years. …
President Xi Jinping, the party chief, laid the groundwork for the crackdown in a series of speeches delivered in private to officials during and after a visit to Xinjiang in April 2014, just weeks after Uighur militants stabbed more than 150 people at a train station, killing 31. Mr. Xi called for an all-out “struggle against terrorism, infiltration and separatism” using the “organs of dictatorship,” and showing “absolutely no mercy.” …
Officials argued that attacks in Britain resulted from policies that put “human rights above security,” and Mr. Xi urged the party to emulate aspects of America’s “war on terror” after the Sept. 11 attacks. …
The guide recommended increasingly firm replies telling the students that their relatives had been “infected” by the “virus” of Islamic radicalism and must be quarantined and cured. …
Although he did not order mass detentions in these speeches, he called on the party to unleash the tools of “dictatorship” to eradicate radical Islam in Xinjiang. “
“Don’t be afraid if hostile forces whine, or if hostile forces malign the image of Xinjiang,” he said.”
Rod Dreher is hand wringing over the poor Muslims.
“The Soviets and their allies in Central Europe did similar things to Christians in their day. Don’t forget that. This is how Communists are. This is what Communism is. …
Again, no one can plausibly begrudge Beijing its desire to stop Islamic extremism. But the Chinese Communists are eradicating an ancient culture and a religion from the face of the earth in Xinjiang province. And the world just stands by watching, because China is rich and powerful enough to get away with it.”
So, China doesn’t want to be like the UK? Xi Jinping cares less about the human rights whining of the Western liberal media than nipping this problem in the bud? Why is that a bad thing? Unlike the West, China will still be Chinese in the late 21st century.
Why should we be worrying like Mrs. Jellyby over how China is dealing with Muslim radicals in one of its distant provinces? Britain which has allowed London to be taken over by Muslims should be emulating what China is doing, not the other way around.
Note: There has been a wave of liberal propaganda against China on this issue. VICE, CNN, The Economist and the BBC are all pushing the same narrative.
