New York Times: Leaked Files Expose China’s Mass Detention of Muslims

The New York Times isn’t content to undermine the Trump administration.

It also wants to undermine the Chinese government by worrying about the human rights of Muslim terrorists in Xinjiang in western China.

New York Times:

“HONG KONG — The students booked their tickets home at the end of the semester, hoping for a relaxing break after exams and a summer of happy reunions with family in China’s far west.

Instead, they would soon be told that their parents were gone, relatives had vanished and neighbors were missing — all of them locked up in an expanding network of detention camps built to hold Muslim ethnic minorities.

The authorities in the Xinjiang region worried the situation was a powder keg. And so they prepared.

The leadership distributed a classified directive advising local officials to corner returning students as soon as they arrived and keep them quiet. It included a chillingly bureaucratic guide for how to handle their anguished questions, beginning with the most obvious: Where is my family?

The directive was among 403 pages of internal documents that have been shared with The New York Times in one of the most significant leaks of government papers from inside China’s ruling Communist Party in decades. They provide an unprecedented inside view of the continuing clampdown in Xinjiang, in which the authorities have corralled as many as a million ethnic Uighurs, Kazakhs and others into internment camps and prisons over the past three years. …

President Xi Jinping, the party chief, laid the groundwork for the crackdown in a series of speeches delivered in private to officials during and after a visit to Xinjiang in April 2014, just weeks after Uighur militants stabbed more than 150 people at a train station, killing 31. Mr. Xi called for an all-out “struggle against terrorism, infiltration and separatism” using the “organs of dictatorship,” and showing “absolutely no mercy.” …

Officials argued that attacks in Britain resulted from policies that put “human rights above security,” and Mr. Xi urged the party to emulate aspects of America’s “war on terror” after the Sept. 11 attacks. …

The guide recommended increasingly firm replies telling the students that their relatives had been “infected” by the “virus” of Islamic radicalism and must be quarantined and cured. …

Although he did not order mass detentions in these speeches, he called on the party to unleash the tools of “dictatorship” to eradicate radical Islam in Xinjiang. “

“Don’t be afraid if hostile forces whine, or if hostile forces malign the image of Xinjiang,” he said.”

Rod Dreher is hand wringing over the poor Muslims.


“The Soviets and their allies in Central Europe did similar things to Christians in their day. Don’t forget that. This is how Communists are. This is what Communism is. …

Again, no one can plausibly begrudge Beijing its desire to stop Islamic extremism. But the Chinese Communists are eradicating an ancient culture and a religion from the face of the earth in Xinjiang province. And the world just stands by watching, because China is rich and powerful enough to get away with it.”

So, China doesn’t want to be like the UK? Xi Jinping cares less about the human rights whining of the Western liberal media than nipping this problem in the bud? Why is that a bad thing? Unlike the West, China will still be Chinese in the late 21st century.

Why should we be worrying like Mrs. Jellyby over how China is dealing with Muslim radicals in one of its distant provinces? Britain which has allowed London to be taken over by Muslims should be emulating what China is doing, not the other way around.

Note: There has been a wave of liberal propaganda against China on this issue. VICE, CNN, The Economist and the BBC are all pushing the same narrative.

  1. After years of problems with Muslim unrest and terrorism, the Chinese gov’t cracked down on pisslamics. Good for them. I’d like it if we did reverse 9/11’s. Send the muzzies back by the planeload to their backward shitholes (Saudi Arabia, Somalia, etc.), and have all the flights crashland there wherever. Like into tall office buildings or government structures, let’s say.

  2. China is providing the blueprint for how to maintain a healthy society. This is how you keep a nation safe and cohesive.

    I don’t take the NYT’s hand wringing in good faith, but if it was…I’d say that if you like the way the sausage tastes, you have to accept that the process of making it ain’t pretty. Good societies don’t just magically spring up from wishful thinking.

    • Yeah, but until “Charlie ” stops making “Man’s Best Friend ” into an entrée and go back to eating rice and rat meat, I cannot support Team China.

      Politically, they’re showing what homogeneous nationalism looks like in a country with a high IQ population.

      • @November exactly. I will never support a group of people who slaughter and eat dogs or cats. To me it is on the same level as someone who abuses Children.

  3. Prediction: The U.S. Government under “conservative” President Trump will start taking in these Moslems from China. The Chinese will wisely say: “OK, you want ’em, you got ’em.” To express their undying gratitude these Moslems will then start disruptive activities here then outright terrorism in the U.S. similar to the Boston Marathon bombers.

    BTW, the SJW types learned nothing from the Boston Marathon bombing. They are incapable of learning the lessons of life that contradict their defective programming. The SJW types are far more damaging than the terrorists who would not trouble us were it not for the SJW types and the scumbag businessmen who want cheap labor.

    • 12AX7,

      Russia’s FSB warned the jewnited states deep state (I.e., fbi, dhs, cia) about the eldest Tsarnaev brother and his family’s ties to Chechen extremists. Obviously, the zogbots intentionally ignored the Russian’s ‘411,’ therefore, so they could test how far the sheeple would fall into line with local, state, and federal “authorities ” declaration of martial law. The sheeple went “baa” with no resistance, and even lined the streets of Boston to give the worthless LEOs (it was a boomer that discovered where the younger Tsarnaev brother was hiding) a standing ovation while waving the USA flag.

      The jewsmedia initially placed the blame on “Radical elements inside the Tea Party” because the marathon bombing took place on April 15th.

  4. In one of my all-time favorite books, Richard Lynn’s volume on eugenics, he predicts that after the collapse of the West, China will carry on Civilization…unhindered by sentimentalism, mass immigration, dysgenic miscegenation with inferior races, the ideology of “human rights,’ softness, feminization, etc., etc. I think we’re seeing this happening in real time. China is also proceeding with a eugenics program to make its race even stronger, while the
    White Man is getting weaker and dumber and more effeminate everywhere we look.

    • Yep. China is already genetically engineering fetuses to be immune to HIV, while the West gives toddler and preteens hormones to “transition ” into another gender. ‘Nuff said.

  5. These Muslims in Western China are American imperial proxies – during the second Obama administration, their terrorist groups were listed on the State Department’s own website as receiving American aid. The US has been following the old British imperial model in regards to radical Islamic sects.

    The only people who do NOT know this are American conservatives.

    So the NYT is simply acting as a mouthpiece for American imperialism, which is their job after all.

  6. They are suppressing open worship which will drive the religion underground, like the Spanish Inquisition did in creating the crypto Jews. When the Communism falls in China, Islam will return just like Christianty did in Russia. The only thing that would work in the long run, is mass deportation to the Middle East.

  7. The ancient Arab Christian community in the Middle East is being destroyed by Zionist aggression yet I don’t hear the neocon establishment crying about that.

  8. This hand-wringing and kvetching is done by the Usual Suspects who want to soften up China to be the next country to host their soft landing when, finally, the SHTF all over the West and as insurance when the United States starts its own star-spangled blue pogrom.

    Any country that is used to being hard on its country’s religious ethnics – and China is militantly secular – so it hammers, Muslims, Christians, and even its home-grown Falun Gong – is NOT going to give the protected religious minority status to the Jews they obtained from the Soviet Union and its Eastern Bloc. And the extra protection they are enjoying all over the West.

    Moreover, when the Usual Suspects migrated to China to help Chairman Mao Tse Tsung eradicate the any suspected supporters of the more bourgeois Kuomintang, they found that Mao and his supporters had no reason then to give them protected status and even went so far to scatter them all throughout China making it impossible for their children to practice endogamous matrimony. He took the Kaifeng Jew Program enacted against the Sephardic Jewis merchants there in the middle ages and put it on steroids.

    The Chinese authorities are making it clear that anyone who wants to can try to invest in China, but the Chinese themselves will be in charge of China and have final say over everything. No Non-ethnic Chinese whatsoever.
    They are militant about positing that their way is the best way so why would any minority need protected status from the best way?

    And the more kvetching they hear from the Usual Suspects, the more they double down. I suspect that it was this Chinese intractability which enabled the electoral victory of Donald Trump by the voter counters, if you agree with the position that all national elections are rigged, and may have been what bought the United States some sort of reprieve. The next host has not been softened up sufficiently to let the USA dry up and blow away – yet.

  9. The Islamic virus isn’t the only virus they are resisting. They have had a front seat view in real time as to the antics various religions with protected minority status have perpetrated in the West and they want no part of that. There is a pdf on the internet by a Jewish think-tank anticipating the rise of China and India as the new economic giants and how the Jews could exploit that.

    At the time, they thought it would be easy as the Chinese and the Indians didn’t have the history of Anti-Semitism like European and Islamic countries. But thanks to the internet and modern communications, China has the advantage that previous hosts never enjoyed; seeing them destroy their current host culture in real time.

    So, I think, for that reason, they have doubled down on all religious minorities. By being militantly secular, no one can accuse the Chinese of discriminating against any religion, so I think they are being very shrewd.
