Opinion: Donald Trump’s administration just did something big for China’s oppressed Muslims in Xinjiang while NZ is quiet

Hypocrite supreme

NewsHub Opinion.

When Jacinda Ardern called on Donald Trump to show sympathy and love for all Muslim communities after the Christchurch mosque attacks, she wasn’t talking about China’s one million-plus Muslims in detention camps who our Government has largely ignored.

Ardern’s Government has been quiet on the crisis, expressing disapproval but being careful not to embarrass China over the issue for fear of trade repercussions.

But the Trump administration this week went far beyond that. lambasting the camps in the northwestern Xinjiang province in no uncertain terms and launching punitive actions.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday announced visa restrictions on Chinese officials accused of being involved in the mass internment of Uyghurs, Kazakhs and other minorities. The US commerce department also banned US companies from selling technology to bodies involved in surveillance in Xinjiang.

“China has forcibly detained over one million Muslims in a brutal, systematic campaign to erase religion and culture in Xinjiang. China must end its draconian surveillance and repression, release all those arbitrarily detained, and cease its coercion of Chinese Muslims abroad,” Pompeo said in a statement.

Those strong words make Ardern’s light chastisement of China look weak, and her call for compassion from Trump hypocritical.

But Cindy says they are us and need our love and support. Obviously only when it suits her feeble little mind. SLG

  1. Sorry, but I just can’t see why anybody would get upset about China’s very effective method for dealing with the problem of Muslims.

    If Europe introduced mass internment in re-education camps their Muslim problem would disappear in a couple of years. But of course they wouldn’t dare to do that.

    China won’t be bombed and terrorised into submission and good on them for this. The Muslims were stupid enough to try it on with a mass knife attack in a railway station some time ago and China came down on them so hard that now they don’t dare even to fart.

    Well done China. If the West had any balls, we could learn a lot from you guys.
