The Woke Come Face-to-Face with Genocide

 

The new generation has been liberating people by imposing pronouns and forced mixed-gender bathrooms. They call anyone who doesn’t hold their perverse views “fascists.” Of course, the new generation doesn’t have a clue what actual fascism is about. One day the totalitarian government without warning rounds people up of a particular ethnic group. They are told they are being sent to work camps or reeducation facilities. In reality, they are going to a prison camp from which there is a good chance they will not come out alive.

Blaming everyone for imaginary racism, sexism, homophobia, and Islamophobia in the freest society on earth has been a great joke that the magic woke generation has been playing on everyone in the USA. Now they are going to realize that the human rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution are the only protection in the world from tyrannical regimes bent on murder.

ChinaFile Presents: The Situation in Xinjiang

Karl Marx spun his fantasy about a magical Marxist State that would be a paradise. To get to this paradise you just had to give up all belief in individual autonomy, basic human rights, and democracy. When you make a deal with the Devil it won’t end well. This is the lesson that the new generation needs to learn and learn fast.

    Yes this is the lesson the newer generations need to learn and learn fast. Unfortunately they’ re learning the exact opposite of this lesson. Until people in the center take control over our schools and universities, it will be hard to anticipate a decent future for us Americans.

    Exactly so Carol. Our pathetic schools grasping after power and a little more grant money have filled the heads of more than a generation with perverse anti-American propaganda. There is still a core of scholars hiding out in Academia hoping for relief. If only we can persevere we can liberate them from ideological tyranny and allow academic freedom to flow on campus again.

    James Gawron: only protection in the world from tyrannical regimes bent on murder

    Maybe the youth become enlightened to true oppression.  Maybe they will be greatful they live in the greatest country ever.  Or, maybe the lemmings will believe Leftists saying that some religious people in China are bigots that need to be re-educated, because their rural “hate speech” was triggering to others.

    I’m glad that the Right is taking this seriously as an issue.

    I got sick to my stomach reading that article. The Chinese people have been demonstrating their thirst and hunger for discussion and books and films  about religious and philosophical ideals and attitudes for the last 15 years.

    Circa 2008 and 2009, many Chinese were feeling that the boot of oppression had at long last  been lifted from their spiritual necks. To think it is coming back down on them is a horrifying thought.

    No Communist regime has ever totally beaten the religious impulse out of their oppressed people.  It is always there, and always will be there.  Even with the Vatican agreeing to be subordinate to the Chinese Communist Party will not make the Chinese Catholics give up their faith.  They may need to hide it better, but it is still there.

    It blows my mind that Hu Jin Tao proved to be more liberal on human rights than his successor.

    I was hoping this post would show that the Woke are facing up to a current genocide.  I would not assume that merely because it is happening, the Woke would either know about it or be concerned about it.  You have to ignore a lot to be Woke in the first place.

    It is noteworthy that the injustice (but not genocide) of South African apartheid generated vastly more outrage than the systematic extermination of Tibetan and Uighur culture and peoples has in the present.  The left wears morality like Native American hunters once wore buffalo hides—a deception and a bad imitation of the real thing.

    Jimmy Carter said that US policy would be based on defense of human rights rather than Cold War considerations which turned out to mean Communist regimes got a pass.  In fairness to Carter and all of his successors, it is hard for the government to put aside realpolitik considerations. But that is not an excuse that applies to youthful moralists.

    Zaf,

    When the woman spoke I almost cried. It was just like listening to Holocaust survivors. There is a French woman survivor in our synagogue who lost her father and most of her huge old French family. The Uighur situation is now a full-scale genocidal possibility.

    If Xi can be convinced that it will be a disaster for China to go ahead and actually murder them perhaps he can stop it. Unfortunately, I am fearful that the core of the Chinese communist party has already committed itself to Uighur liquidation. This is the true cold amorality of Marxism in its most brutal horrific form.

    Regards,

    Jim

    These camps have been there since 2014, approximately 10% of the Uighur population is imprisoned in them.  I doubt that there will be any serious consequences for CCP from this, given China’s place in the world today.

    Unfortunately, I am fearful that the core of the Chinese communist party has already committed itself to Uighur liquidation. This is the true cold amorality of Marxism in its most brutal horrific form.

    Disturbingly:

    The Uighur are a problem for China, and perhaps an intractable one. They are reluctant subjects of the Chinese state, they sit on the route most key to Xi Jinping’s signature Belt and Road Initiative, and increasing oppression has so far only prompted further resistance.

    But as far as we know, China isn’t massacring the Uighurs….

    The extraordinarily high levels of capacity and control required to implement a policy of cultural genocide explain why we so infrequently observe this type of repression in the absence of cataclysmic violence. Despite its high costs in absolute terms, lethal violence is the cheaper and easier path to the destruction of a group. It is no coincidence that the pace of the Holocaust’s butchery accelerated as Nazi Germany faced increased strain on its resources and capacity. Likewise, Myanmar’s recent shift from the maintenance of an apartheid state to an all-out onslaught on the Rohingya suggests a change of strategy in reaction to the inability to effectively employ less violent means to obliterate the group’s identity.

    These precedents set off alarm bells about how things might play out in Xinjiang. China…is currently employing the highest-cost strategy available in pursuit of this aim. If this proves too difficult, it is more likely that it will default to an easier approach than abandon its goals—with fatal consequences.

    Zaf,

    Staying with my original theme, I can’t help but blame the leftist media and academic culture for being as tone-deaf as they are. When things turn dangerously for the worse, they are incapable of comment because they can’t use the narrative unless they can say something unflattering about Trump or pro-Global socialism. Thus they usually ignore that which is most relevant and emphasize the trivial.

    Here is another situation that may be getting out of hand.

    Iranian officials ‘stealing bodies’ from morgues to hide true scale of government crackdown

    Mehdi Nekouee should have been fighting for his life on a hospital ward.

    The 20-year-old law student was one of the first of hundreds shot by Revolutionary Guard in spontaneous anti-government protests that swept across Iran last week.

    But instead of lying in a hospital bed – or the rack of a morgue – Mr Nekouee’s family believe he was spirited away by intelligence officers removing dead and injured protesters to hide the true scale of the government’s brutal crackdown.

    Too bad that we have a news media that follows the Trump baby balloon more than it cares about people being murdered by cruel regimes.

    Regards,

    Jim
