  • poverty is not justice, lack of education is not justice, forcing women to be baby-making machine is not justice, under-development and lack of opportunity is not justice. The CCP is changing that, while this stupid descendent of British colonialists who cannot recognise his own privilege is talking nonsense on mainstream western media. The arrogance and the hypocrisy are really eye-opening.

  • lol, westerners are making fairytales about remote ethic minorities without knowing who they are and what they are facing in their daily life. What's even worse, they are idealising religion and fundamentalist religious movement when themselves are the ones who openly against it. They probably do not know their soldiers are sent to the middle east to fight the Uighurs who are radicalised to fight for ISIS and other terrorists groups. What a bunch of hypocrites and idiots.

  • Just more CIA, military industrial complex, "WMD" propaganda. Uyghur population in China has more than doubled in recent decades. Every meaningful metric of human wellbeing on a dramatic rise, tourism to Xinjiang at an all time high and terrorism, THAT AMERICA FUNDED, has been reduced to 0, thus the neoliberal salt and relentless (and effective) demonization. They'd never call the FAR WORSE French camps "concentration camps" because France is white. GET WOKE!

    • lol, maybe to your surprise: almost all Islamic countries support China's policy in Xinjiang, while the ones who are against it are basically the anti-China western countries. Oh, how stupid it is, the countries who have been killing people in the middle east for years suddenly began to care about the Muslim. Westerners are just a bunch of hypocrites. They don't care about the Muslim, the only agenda on the table is that they hate China, and they will not give up any opportunities to make China look bad.

I remember very well when the "news" broke two years ago, the Fox News message board were full of people cheering it on since no one gave a crap about Muslims. Then the MSM corrected the masses and now everyone is so woke about it.

China is Maoist cult, Maoism is extremely violent form of ideology often being followed like a religion. Uyghurs are one of the most peaceful community on the planet. They have been victims of China sponsored islamic and maoist terrorism. China is the number ally of Islamic terrorist organisations including pakistan, saudi arabia, al shaabab, boko haram, taliban and hezbollah

  • When talking about "reeducation" we need only look at our own country. Erasure of slavery from k thru 12 education, native Americans being sent away to conditional schools and being rounded up to be adopted by white families, to our TV programs about "idealic" American life (mind you many foreign countries view them and people think this is a great place until they get here and reality sets in). I learned not until adulthood that Hitler and his leaders learned from American books how to round up Jews into Ghettos and poison opinions about them among other things before the war even got started. China seems to have more recent advant reeducation programs. Where did their idea to start this come from and the use of technology to help their cause? It is a slippery slope we live on. Be careful

So, I don't blame china's course of action or methods. Any one who disagrees, I encourage them to come visit my home country Somali and see how Islamic extremist operate. Complete destabilisation of a country.

  • Wow, the hypocrisy of western countries and media is well demonstrated here. Westerners don’t like Muslims and have killed so many of them, yet they love Chinese Muslims. How ironic. Do you westerners even know anything about China and Xinjiang? Do you even know that there were many terrorist attacks in China in the last decades led by religious separatists who wanted to make Xinjiang a separate Islamic country? Do you know how many Chinese people have died because of these separatists? China is just trying to assimilate those people so that they could eliminate terrorism. What did the US do because of “anti-terrorism”? They bombed civilians in the Middle East and slaughtered innocent people. Why don’t you guys condemn them? Also, almost none of these news reports is true because western media loves to demonize China.

    • @William Z Why would it? My country was colonized, granted independence and then some states seceded from us. And probably the only anarchy came from communists in the jungle with support from China, which ceased after our leaders form diplomatic relations with them. As far as I understand it, people didn't get reeducated, just won over. And the people who seceded from us? They are doing pretty well, better than us even. Good for them!

      Julian rJulian r6 日 前
    • @Julian rwow, you blew my mind. If states of countries can secede freely, this world would be in chaos. Are you some kind of anarchist? Hippie?

    • @William Z If a state in my country wants to secede, I wouldn't mind. Clearly they want to forge their own future, and they should have the right to do so. No one should be forced to endure another's presence just because they have a big stick.

      Julian rJulian r6 日 前
    • @Julian rwdym “lands that don’t belong to them”? Xinjiang is a province of China. What’s wrong with handling terrorism and social unrest within the country’s territory? Leave them alone? That’s the stupidest thing I have ever heard. If they were really left alone, Xinjiang would be a separate country. How would you feel if parts of your country want to secede?

      William ZWilliam Z6 日 前
    • @William Z ​ @William Z Well the best way is to just leave them alone. The US wouldn't have suffered 9/11 if they hadn't meddled in the middle east. Likewise China wouldn't have suffered what little terrorism they had had they just not push their way to lands that don't belong to them, to people who do not agree with their ideology.
