The CCP is freaking out about being labeled a Genocidal regime based on their treatment of Uyghurs in Xinjiang. They will do anything to slip out of this noose. Of course, this behavior should come as no surprise. We know they have brutally suppressed other minorities – Tibetans, Falun Gong followers, Christians, Hong Kong freedom protesters, to name a few.
The CCP is engaging in all of the practices outlined in the U.N. Genocide Convention, to which the CCP is a signatory. Genocide is defined as “acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group.” These acts include the following:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”
Any one of these categories constitutes genocide. The overwhelming evidence of the Chinese government’s deliberate and systematic campaign to destroy the Uighur people clearly meets each of these categories. Forced sterilizations and abortions on Uyghur women, coercing them to marry non-Uyghurs, and separating Uyghur children from their families.
Eye witnesses have come forward to confirm these facts. The CCP will do anything to slip out of this noose. So, what behavior should we expect from the CCP to accomplish its goal?
The CCP doesn’t care about the damage they are doing to the Uyghur people, they only care about protecting their image. The last thing they want is an issue which could galvanize the International community against them. The CCP-virus should be, and eventually will be, another such issue. We can see how the CCP is battling against the fact that the virus was created in the Wuhan Lab. Just today the WHO fact-finding mission is predictably claiming that it is unlikely that the CCP-virus comes from the Wuhan Lab. The CCP is preparing the narrative that the virus emanated from America, and perhaps Donald Trump is the mastermind. Their strategy against the Xinjiang will follow the same script.
What happens next?
On February 19th, moments before leaving office for good, the former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo designated the treatment of Uyghurs in Xinjiang as Genocide. The British House of Lords also voted to pass an amendment to their trade law that would potentially block future trade deals with China over alleged genocide in the Xinjiang region.
The genocide designation by the former Secretary of State does not trigger any immediate repercussions. It only requires the US to take this into account in formulating future policy towards China. Incoming Secretary of State Tony Blinken has supposedly endorsed the designation. However, on January 5th, Blinken cited humanitarian concerns when he reversed a last-minute decision by his predecessor Mike Pompeo to designate Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthis rebels a foreign terrorist organization. This is believed to be a potential precursor to also helping the CCP escape their Genocide designation.
Use the western Media.
As we have seen, the CCP has been very effective at infiltrating western media and Social media platforms. We have covered this topic in previous articles and the evidence can be seen in the coverage of the US election, the censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story, the censorship of the source of the CCP-virus, censorship of stories about CCP-virus prophylactics like Hydroxychloroquine, etc. However, just as the Biden Administration is finding it difficult to avoid the trip-wire of Genocide that Pompeo left for them, the US media will find it difficult to frame this charge as anything but a blot on the CCP.
Bribe the jury – UN & International Criminal Court.
The UN Human Rights Council (UNHCR) recently voted for a new President. Initially the candidate from Fiji, Nazhat Khan, was considered as an unopposed winner. However, the CCP, Russia, and Saudi Arabia blocked this coronation by advancing opposing candidates, due to her strong record on human rights. Nonetheless Khan won the Presidency. It is a temporary win for those who champion human rights in the World. The CCP will continue their efforts to pressure the UNHCR and UN to make sure the Council does not take up this genocide designation. All necessary pressure will brought-to-bear to make sure this does not see the light of day. Certainly Khan herself will be under intense pressure.
Bribe or threaten the investigators.
On February 5th, 2021 the UNHCR called for a visit by the UNHCR to Xinjiang. Similarly, France’s President Macron on September 22, 2020 called for a mission from the UN to visit Xinjiang for fact finding. To date, no mission has been sent. Any crew of investigators that the UNHCR might want to send to Xinjiang will either be rejected access, or their visit will be strictly controlled and orchestrated. Facilities visited will be vocational training facilities and entirely bleached of any evidence of wrong doing. Locals interviewed will be threatened to follow the desired CCP narrative. Much like the WHO has already whitewashed their report on the source of the Wuhan virus, following the CCP narrative of deflecting blame elsewhere, so would a UN mission report miss the mark if they visited Xinjiang.
Manufacture a counter-narrative.
An effective strategy used by the CCP in the past when their human rights record is criticized has been to launch a counter narrative which focuses on the weaknesses of their main antagonist – whoever is launching the most strikes about the Xinjiang genocide – right now America and the UK. Ironically the CCP always targets race relations in the US as a false equivalent to their poor human rights record in China. It is ironic because the CCP has been the main actor stirring up these long dormant sentiments in the US. Ever since the Obama Administration the CCP has actively funded and directed Communist front groups, Antifa and even BLM to create unrest in America under the guise of racism. It is part of their three-F plan (fall-fail-fell).
Threaten current and potential witnesses.
Another strategy the CCP uses quite successfully is to threaten and blackmail their own citizens living in the West. Many accounts of the CCP coercing their diaspora and whistleblowers in the west to keep silent, or even to recant their stories and follow the CCP narrative in Canada, Australia, the US and Europe, have been reported in the press. Relatives in China are brought in for “tea time” with the police or security forces. Through them their overseas kin are coerced into silence.
Create your own fake witnesses.
Ethnic Uyghurs from Xinjiang will similarly be coerced/threatened into making statements or giving interviews to the press recounting stories of how their experience in the concentration camps – pardon me, “vocational schools “- were a spiritual experience which greatly enhanced their skills and job prospects, as well as improving their inter-personal skills which made their family life and marriages more fulfilling.
The CCP doesn’t care about the damage and pain they are causing people – in this case the Uyghurs. Since at least Mao, the CCP has long since stripped itself of the pretense of caring about people. Human life is worthless – unless it is their own lives of course. The CCP only ever cares about what this might mean for their image and by corollary, what this will mean for their goals of International hegemony and amassing wealth. The last thing they want is an issue which
could galvanize the International community against them. But even this can be tolerated since the CCP always takes the long view on the road to hegemony. They have a long-term plan and unlike western nations they stick to it. This is why it is so frustrating to watch each successive western leader make a big show of attempting to negotiate with the CCP. If they only did their homework they would discover that the CCP has broken the terms of every contract or international accord they ever signed. It is not by accident – although they will make up every excuse to convince you it was – it is by design. Sooner or later, the Biden Administration will discover this too. Until then humans will suffer under the CCP. Nothing much has changed since the days of Mao.
