Weekender: Xinhua demands WUC Self-Censorship

The latest about Rebiya Kadeer, according to Singapore’s Morning News, comes from Xinhua. Xinhua informs us that after the Shaoguan (韶关) incident of June 26, Kadeer made a phonecall to her deputy saying that the incident should be paid attention to, because it was a very good opportunity. The World Uyghur Congress (WUC) should immediately distort the facts on the internet and hype it all up. Also, the WUC-related East Turkistan Information Center should issue a statement, falsely saying that the Uyghurs were reduced to be the slaves of the Han nationality bosses who seriously exploited, humiliated and discriminated against them. The paragraph as written at Morning News suggests that Kadeer herself used the words incident, to distort, and hpye things up:

新华社指出,广东韶关6月26日发生了新疆籍员工和当地员工群殴事件后,世维会主席热比娅在电话中和世维会副主席塞依提·吐木吐鲁克说:“要重视这次事件,这是一个很好的机会。”世维会随即在网上歪曲事实并大肆炒作,包括世维会属下的东突信息中心发表声明,诬称“维吾尔族人沦为内地汉族老板的奴隶,遭受严重剥削、屈辱和歧视”。

So, to cut the long Xinhua story short, Kadeer made phonecalls, Uyghurs communicated on the Qing Feng Feng Website without being censored, and that in turn triggered the 7-15 incident.

Cracks aside, if this is enough to cause upheaval in China, Beijing’s position amounts to a demand for Western celf-censorship, so as not to disturb the harmonious and mutually respectful life of the country’s 56 nationalities.

This miserable plot, entitled by Morning News as “Xinhua discloses the process of WUC riot plans (but at least they still put the riot plans between quotation marks) wasn’t even good enough yet to be picked up by the English version of the Global Times (but there are scores of Chinese-language reports on Xinhua’s latest intelligence, of course).

Meantime, JR has to protest against the Global Times’ Forum. There is a call for the assassination of Rebiya Kadeer and the Dalai Lama!

A Chastened Patriot's Just Cause

A Chastened Patriot's Just Cause

Nothing against funny posts – but if Xinhua’s drivel proves Rebiya Kadeer  guilty of instigating murder, Saddam Hussein was in posession of wmd in 2002, and the Global Times is guilty of instigating murder in the United States, and in India.

AND DON’T TRY EVEN FOR A MOMENT TO TELL ME THAT THIS STUFF IS JUST A FOREIGNER#S POOR SATIRE!! jUSt ANOtheR  of your dEVIOuS PRETEXTS!!! you are WOrkIng HAND IN gLOVE!!

Next time some Maoists instigate car-wrecking activities in Berlin, I’ll accuse Beijing.
