The Uighur ethnic population in Xinjiang province is being persecuted by the Communist Chinese Government. In August of 2020 US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement, “This genocide is ongoing, and…we are witnessing the systematic attempt to destroy Uighurs by the Chinese party-state.” (CNN)
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum issued a 56 page report. “The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum is gravely concerned that the Chinese government may be committing genocide against the Uighurs.” It further states, “The impunity with which the Chinese government has been able to commit these crimes thus far cannot persist,” it said. “The future of a people may depend on swift, coordinated action by global actors.” (asiaone)
The Chinese government has used forced sterilization and abortions in an attempt to decrease the Uighur population (Population Research Institute). The government has been using incarceration in an attempt to destroy their cultural identity. They confiscate Qurans and arrest those who refuse to eat pork. They flag individuals to be incarcerated in “re-education centers” through internet and phone monitoring.
Several nations, including Muslim ones, have detained and deported back to China members of the Uighur population. These nations include Egypt, Burma and Thailand. It is believed over 1 million Uighurs have been sent to the camps (Wikipedia)
Rape is used as a psychological tool to destroy the Uighurs’ will to resist Marxism. In the camps women are raped, sexually abused and tortured, often in front of other detainees (BBC). This time honored tool of psychological tyranny put to use by the Communist Chinese would make Karl proud.
Throw into the mix everyone’s favorite contractor, Erik Prince. the Blackwater founder and now CEO of Frontier Services Group has contracted with China to train guards at the Xinjiang province concentration camps (South China Morning Post).
