On Google China, there are zero “Xinjiang Uyghur concentration camp” links.
While Google-eyed Americans are distracted by men and women who act like boobs, the Chinese are in the dark about most things, because the government monitors and censors every person and medium, punishing outspoken citizens with shunning, lowering credit scores, even incarcerating and executing.
But some of China’s worst crimes against its own people are leaking into the Internet here, even on American Google’s YouTube.
Gordon Chang, author of The Coming Collapse of China, has reported that up to five million Uighurs and ethnic Kazakhs are held in concentration camps in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, formerly known as East Turkestan.
Children of imprisoned Uighur and Kazakh parents are “confined” to “schools” that are separated from the outside by barbed wire and heavy police patrols, Chang said.
They are denied instruction in their own language, forced to learn Mandarin Chinese. The controls are part of a so-called “Hanification” policy, a program of forced assimilation. “Han” is the name of China’s dominant ethnic group.
Because Uighurs and Kazakhs are dying in the camps in considerable numbers, Beijing is building crematoria to eradicate burial traditions while disposing of corpses.
China is now building similar “re-education facilities”, in Tibet.
Meanwhile Beijing is renewing its attempt to eliminate religion country-wide.
Christians have come under even greater attack across China, as have Buddhists, Chang explained.
China’s ruler, Xi Jinping, demands that the five recognized religions (Buddhism, Catholicism, Daoism, Islam, and Protestantism) … “Sinicize.”
The Chinese, as a part of this ruthless and relentless effort, are destroying mosques and churches, forcing devout Muslims to drink alcohol and eat pork, inserting Han officials to live in Muslim homes, and ending religious instruction for minors.
Since Xi Jinping became the Communist Party’s general secretary in November 2012, he has been promoting the concept of a world order ruled by only one sovereign, a Chinese one.
In broad outline, Xi’s vision of the world is remarkably similar to that of the Nazis in their Third Reich, Chang said.
The Third Reich and the People’s Republic share a virulent racism, in China politely referred to as “Han chauvinism.” The Han category, which is said to include about 92% of the population of the People’s Republic, is in truth the amalgamation of related ethnic groups.
Chinese mythology holds that all Chinese are descendants of the Yellow Emperor, who is thought to have ruled in the third millennium BCE. The Chinese consider themselves to be a branch of humanity separate from the rest of the world, a view reinforced by indoctrination in schools, among other means.
Chinese scholars support this Chinese separateness with the “Peking Man” theory of evolution, which holds the Chinese do not share a common African ancestor with the remainder of humankind.
Many in China, including officials believe themselves to be categorically different from and implicitly superior to the rest of the humankind, Fei-Ling Wang, author of The China Order: Centralia, World Empire, and the Nature of Chinese Power, said.
This racial superiority belief was shown in the 13-minute skit on China Central Television’s Spring Festival Gala, the nation’s premier television show.
In “Let’s Celebrate Together,” a Chinese actress in blackface played a Kenyan mother, who had an enormous bosom and ridiculously large buttocks. Worse, her sidekick was a human-size monkey, Chang explained.
The combination of the monkey and the woman was an echo of the Hubei Provincial Museum exhibit, “This is Africa,” which in 2017 displayed photographs of Africans flush next to images of primates.
