Thousands of Religious Minorities Held in Chinese ‘Thought Transformation’ Camps: ‘I Love the Communist Party’ By Will Maule for Faith Wire
GNN Note – George Orwell’s book, 1984 and Animal Farm, both spring to life right before your eyes in the video below. We are told, again and again, by the corporate media in the west that China is a model nation. It’s a model nation of a dystopian nightmare where freedom, religion and liberty are nothing more than a vague idea that must be “cleansed” from a citizens thoughts and, especially, their actions
A wildly disturbing report from the BBC has revealed the sheer number of Muslims and other religious minorities being held against their will in educational detention centers.
Though the government has been attempting to brand the facilities as “schools,” the reality could not be more different. Simply put, the government is seeking to rid this religious minority of all their deeply-held beliefs in exchange for a sole trust and faith in President Xi Jingping and the Chinese state. It is political indoctrination of an incredibly sinister nature.
But when the BBC journalist asks questions of those held, they espouse scripted, almost robotic answers.
“Is it your choice to be here?” one man was asked. “Yes,” he replied, without hesitation. “A policeman at my village told me to get enrolled in the school and transform my thoughts.”
As interviews are conducted by a heavily-screened group of journalists, Chinese government agents watch on.
Eradication of faith and cultural identity
Within the confines of the bleak detainment camps, the religious minorities undergo a strict regiment of political reeducation, the simplicity of which is painful to observe. “I love the communist party of China,” many are instructed to write out repeatedly.
Though the number one objective of the program is “thought transformation,” those held in these facilities must also partake in Mandarin lessons, self-criticism sessions and forced labor.
