Global Times, the propaganda arm of the Chinese Communist Party, declared in an opinion column on Tuesday, 29 June that “Anglo-Saxons” are genetically predisposed to genocide and that the ethnic group “practice [the] law of the jungle,” Breitbart reported.
The Chinese regime, via Global Times, delivered this absurdly accusatory message in response to worldwide condemnation and international pressure to end the persecution and illegal imprisonment of ethnic minorities, and even people of faith, in concentration camps as ‘dissidents’ and ‘threats’ to its policies of control.
According to Breitbart, the regime-run media often publish content criticizing accusations of Uighur genocide by free Western countries, particularly the U.S. and Canada, saying that they cannot criticize China for it since they committed abuses against Native Americans hundreds of years ago.
While the communist media most often accuses these countries of being the most vocal in condemning the atrocities committed by the Chinese regime against the Uighur people, this time they extended that argument to include all Anglo-Saxons in their slander.
Despite the numerous testimonies Chinese concentration camp survivors have given publicly about the aberrations they experienced firsthand or witnessed towards other prisoners of conscience or faith, Beijing continues to deny that this happens, even insisting that they are “actors.”
Extreme forms of torture, such as the use of electric devices in gang rapes, public rape of prisoners in front of hundreds of other inmates, the enslavement of prisoners, forced sterilization, abortions, are some of the terrible experiences of those who have survived such inhumane treatment.
But the Chinese regime does not deny the existence of the camps, although it shamelessly describes them as “vocational training” institutes.
So it is in its continuing effort to cover up its atrocities and keep the Chinese people ignorant and numb that it continually directs slander against free countries, using its propaganda tentacles to write lies and maintain its narrative.
The column published by Global Times, entitled “Brutality against indigenous peoples embedded in Anglo-Saxon DNA,” refers to an event dating back to 1783. It crudely seeks to compare that with the genocide against the Uighurs of the indigenous people of East Turkestan, which continues in Xinjiang in 2021.
“The U.S. and Canada manipulate the human rights card on one hand, and turn a blind eye to the human rights stain on their own soil on the other, which is a manifestation of Western-style hypocrisy and double standards,” the propaganda outlet declares, adding that they “practice [the] law of the jungle, and view the other countries with the same logic.”
According to Twitter’s rules: “You may not promote violence against or directly attack or threaten other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, caste, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or serious disease.”
Meanwhile Facebook states in its community standards that “We define hate speech as a direct attack against people … on the basis of what we call protected characteristics: race, ethnicity, national origin, disability, religious affiliation, caste, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity and serious disease.”
Facebook wrote in Chinese on the local social network WeChat in November 2019:
“Facebook pledges to become the best marketing platform for Chinese companies traveling abroad.” And it did deliver on its promise.
In response to China’s criticism, Trudeau mentioned at a press conference last week that Canada had an attitude of publicly making amends for its past, which the Chinese regime has never done, and remains in denial about its ongoing genocide against Muslim ethnic minorities.
Trudeau said that “China is not recognizing even that there is a problem. That is a pretty fundamental difference,” adding “that is why Canadians and people from around the world are speaking up for people like the Uyghurs who find themselves voiceless, faced with a government that will not recognize what’s happening to them.”
