I’ve been looking into this for a while, and decided to try and put all my conclusions together into one big post to get this monkey off my back. Please feel free to copy and paste this whenever someone wants to debate about the genocide, but when doing so remember to be calm and non-confrontational- other people GENUINELY believe a straight up holocaust is happening here, and it’s not their fault. Most people don’t nerd over politics as much as we do. The reason I’m doing this is because I’m furious at the Western media and state departments for shamelessly gaslighting millions for their own cynical political ends. It’s not the people’s faults for being the victims of it. And please please please comment to correct me if I get something wrong or if you have something to add. Anyway. Also hello brigaders, please note that I literally don’t use a single piece of Chinese state media and do not consume it in any capacity in my personal news diet, you’re the ones who can’t formulate a single argument without relying on state media like BBC, VOA, and RFA, not me. Most of the sources I use in this actually come from Western media. You’re responding to a post that uses Western media to debunk Western media, and the sources you cite are Western media, and then you accuse me of spreading Chinese media propaganda. Ok.
Starting off rhetorically to explain some of the background for this story, why it’s being invented, and why the West has a vested interest in perpetrating such a wide scale smear. Don’t take it from me, take it from Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson.China, as many of you may know, is very well placed economically to displace the United Stateas the dominant world superpower. One of their key projects is the Belt and Road initiative, a project to rebuild the Silk Road, connecting East, Central, and West Asia as well as Europe in the Belt, and South Asia and East Africa in the maritime shipping route of the Road. This is often painted as a ‘scheme’ by the Chinese ‘regime’ (Notice the use of incredibly loaded language almost literally every time the Chinese government is mentioned in the Western press, you’ll be seeing a LOT of this) to center global trade on them and weaken other countries through debt traps. This is a myth based in a very typical right-wing Western argumentation style you should all be aware of by now after 4 years of Trump- deflect, project, attack. Blame the opponent for something you actually perpetrate, both to accuse them, and to deflect the criticism you should be getting because the point of this argument is to muddy the waters and confuse people via false equivalence. Like when China gets one port and everyone cries about it, but ONE French billionaire owns 16 ports in Africa HIMSELF and we literally never even hear about it. Yes, the Belt and Road is good for China and projects soft economic power, but they do that by building high speed rail and mutually beneficial trade agreements instead of drone bombs and aggressively placed military bases. What exactly is so wrong with that? Is it because they called it a ‘plot’ in the news? So it’s easy to understand, especially given the West’s recent history with the last big rival, Japan, that they don’t want to lose their spot on the top. Additionally, China is an incredibly unique and terrifying thing for the West, moreso than Japan because Japan is a G7 country and has been since it’s inception, meaning they always played ball. China is the first example in the history of Capitalism of a former ‘third world’ neo-colony rising up by it’s own power, outside the system of Western control and influence, with open agitations to overthrow and displace the West’s domination after the entire country was destroyed by it during the century of humiliation. Not to mention, China is a proudly socialist country (I’m not going to debate Dengism here, but they say they are and that’s more than enough EDIT: More than enough to incite Western imperialist hostility, not enough to prove ‘it’s socialist’, sorry for the misunderstanding) which doubles the abject terror stricken in the hearts of Western oligarchs. Hopefully this lays out enough of a picture of why these oligarchs, who have complete regulatory capture of their governments and private ownership of the media outlets, would do anything to stop China- hopefully except for nuclear apocalypse. Even though the US state department lawyers can’t seem to find enough evidence to justify the use of the term genocide… This is why the current China controversies chiefly target Xinjiang and the South China Sea. If we can stir up destabilization and maybe even separatism in those regions, it disrupts China’s plans and could even curb them entirely. And stir up they have, since 2004-On the NED-
In 1986, NED’s President Carl Gershman said that the NED was created because "It would be terrible for democratic groups around the world to be seen as subsidized by the CIA… Throughout the course of a 2010 investigation by ProPublica, Paul Steiger, the then editor in chief of the publication said that “those who spearheaded creation of NED have long acknowledged it was part of an effort to move from covert to overt efforts to foster democracy” and cited as evidence a 1991 interview in which then-NED president Allen Weinstein said, "A lot of what we do today was done covertly 25 years ago by the CIA."Critics have compared the NED’s funding of Nicaraguan groups (pro-U.S. and conservative unions, political parties, student groups, business groups, and women’s associations) in the 1980s and 1990s in Nicaragua to the previous CIA effort “to challenge and undermine” a left-wing government in Chile. Latin Americanist scholar William M. LeoGrande writes that the NED’s roughly $2 million funding into Nicaragua between 1984 and 1988 was the “main source of overt assistance to the civic opposition,” of which about half went to the anti-Sandinista newspaper La Prensa.
So it seems clear that the United States is trying to ‘bring democracy’ to Xinjiang and supports the East Turkestan Independence Movement as a way to do that. Also evidenced by the fact that the US removed the Taliban affiliated ETIM from their list of terrorist groups even as they continued to bomb them…
