  1. Ethnic cleansing

    Updated: spelling..

  2. Rest of the World: WTF?
    China: What? We’re trying to make them more like us…

  3. I think I’ve seen this movie.

  4. Okay, for real, can we either finish up this Trump business or put a pin in it, and maybe turn our attention to China?

    Like, I know all the highest rollers in the global Political Power Purchasing circle make a pile of money off China and thus don’t give a shit about a minor holocaust, but just maybe some world leader can wake the fuck up and put human lives and basic human rights ahead of their ~~paychecks~~ re-election campaign donations?

    Or am I just expressing some hopeless wishful thinking here?

  5. Nationalism is a concept that needs to die in a fire. Long over due really. People need to stop being afraid of difference.

  6. When is china going to become a democracy?

  7. Still not fan of using Radio Free Asia as source. In all my years i almost never see a reputable US newspaper cite RFA, except maybe one time in an editorial section and certainly not as the only source

  8. This sounds exactly like what they did during the cultural revolution. Going into homes and destroying any decorations and carvings that resembles the “old” way of thinking.

    Disgusting.

  9. This stuff happened during the Cultural Revolution. This is nothing new for China.

    Look up the FourOlds https://www.nytimes.com/1971/05/19/archives/china-transformed-by-elimination-of-four-olds.html

    >In the turbulent years from 1966 to 1968, what remained of old religious practices, old superstitions, old festivals, old social practices such as traditional weddings and funerals, and old ways of dress were violently attacked and suppressed. Visual evidences of old things were destroyed, and there was an orgy of burning of old books and smashing of old art objects.

  10. Back to the same old same old, the propaganda wheel is bored with the WWIII scare already.

    Authorities in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) are ordering Uyghurs to “modernize” the interiors of their homes by ridding them of traditional ethnic decor and adding Sinicized furniture, largely to the benefit of majority Han Chinese entrepreneurs, **sources said**

    Funny how this sub goes on and on about propaganda, but when the US engages in it no one blinks an eye

  12. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.businessinsider.com/uighur-muslims-made-redecorate-homes-look-more-chinese-report-2020-1) reduced by 82%. (I’m a bot)
    *****
    > China is reportedly forcing members of its Uighur Muslim minority to redecorate their homes to make them look more traditionally Chinese.

    > Achmad Ibrahim/AP. China also runs a "Pair Up and Become Family" program, where it sends Chinese men to live with Uighur women, many of whose husbands have been sent to these camps.

    > According to Radio Free Asia, China has created a $575 million fund to "Modernize" the Uighur people, which includes destroying traditional design features in their homes.

  13. Lol the only source businessinsider cites is Radio Free Asia, a CIA propaganda site

    Lmao they basically copy and pasted the RFA article and did the “Can I copy your homework” meme

  14. Shit….I hear about China’s Christian persecution all the time. Sadly I never considered they’d be after other people of faith too. Awful stuff.

  15. does pier one count as chinese furniture?

  16. “China is reportedly…”

    Then I check where the report comes from, Radio Free Asia. Again.

  17. That ONE commenter:

    You know, I’m no anti-Muslim bigot or anything, but none of these atrocities are real because Radio Free Asia reported on them. That’s definitely the only reason I call BS.

  18. Pretty sure the right would support this as a domestic policy, not that it makes it any less hideous.

  19. China is evil and barbaric.

  20. This sounds like a fake story

  21. Funny that Iran would want any help from China with their treatment of Muslims. Then again the ruling party of Iran is not the same as the people of Iran.

  22. And everyone thinks the USA is bad, China is taking the cake right now Mx

  23. “internment camps”

    Are they even trying to hide it anymore?

  24. USA did this shit to natives.
    I would redecorate to keep from having my organs harvested.

  25. Imagine having a penis so small that you force minorities to redecorate their homes and furniture to appease your insecurities.

    —-

    Edit: ooh, looks like I offended some mini-dick CPC loyalists. We’re going to need a new metric to describe their effeminate genitalia. How about “Xi-Sized”.

  26. I wonder how much of the world actually knows about what happens in China?

  27. I’m surprised they haven’t just gone to Chinese knock off SS uniforms yet.
