    Nice work China for advancing the cause of humanity! Earlier extermination of such religious extremists could have prevented holocaust , stopped Yazidi genocide, prevented massacres of Rohingya Hindus! Such treatment should be extended to Christians so that future purging of native cultures like the Americas can be stopped! God bless China!

    China treats Uighur people absolutely terribly, their population has grown under "persecution" from 3 million to 10 million since 1949. Yet, they still have their own language and culture while they been "force" to learn Mandarin by the country. The United States has treated the Native Americans as well as possible. Their population from 100 million back in 1492 to "Indian Reservation" only 800 thousand. And yet is there any Native American culture and language that remaining? All hail the Anglo-Saxon, all hail the English.

    China just threatened Australians that if they speak any negative sentiments about China that we are scumbags and our children will pay for it. I say fuck you Winnie! I don't blame the Chinese, they are after all living under a modern day 'dictator'. Autocrat...whatever. They don't have a lot to argue against. To be fair though democracy isn't looking great with media and idiots dividing themselves between the far left and right. Whatever happened to common sense? Greater good etc.

    we do worse shit than this every day. we drop 60000 bombs a year. ice interment camps the war on drugs which is largely responsible for 7 million people in our jails not allowing treatment of cancer or the truth about cancer to be heard. (gerson therapy) illegal in the us. I could name a thousand other things... Maybe we should all watch this force fed bullshit about how china is bad from every angle and think about why we should be outraged by they're actions until we end up at war with them because it will make a few people rich and many millions dead. maybe it will deflect from all the inflation and keep us looking else where instead of being outraged at our own shitty environment. or maybe wake the fuck up and take a look around the place where you are right now and see if you think we should be leading the world to be like us or should we be looking at ourselves and making some changes in our behavior before it causes the extinction of the human race or at least the extinction of any possible dignity for our children. It's almost refreshing to know that somewhere in the world people are slaves and made to know it instead of being blind misguided sheep that think they are living in the promise land there is something to be said for doing away with the bs.

    Uuum, but this is something weird about some of these ethnic groups, which was copied from, guess who: The Whites. That's what the Europeans did during colonisation. So people move into a particular location and by becoming the majority, they end up colonising the location. That is what happened in Minnesota, and they ended up with a representative in the house. So, basically, when it works to their advantage, it's not a problem, and when it doesn't work, it all of a sudden is a problem? That is fucking illegal.

    I mean when Fox and CNN are both pushing the same imperialist pro-war narrative, while prisoners in the USA are left to rot, and a jobs program is but a fantasy, it's easy to question their motives. The USA has more prisoners than China, despite having a total population less than a quarter of China's. And US prisoners live in much worse conditions. We got money for wars, but can't feed the poor.

    China is bribing Islamic countries’ silence on this issue by offering thousands of scholarships for students to study in china 🇨🇳 And, Muslim students, when you visit China don’t mention Islam or the Uighur genocide in Xinjiang. Just praise Xi Jinping (not Allah) and all will be fine 👍🏼 🇨🇳 and don’t type anything controversial on WeChat or it’ll be removed. Self-censorship is vital in China.
