Liberal Professors Try To Defend China's Genocide
This is a cold-blooded stance here and an odd one at that. We may very well have to defend Taiwan from China soon, which could lead to further conflicts from the communist nation. But China is not only outwardly aggressive, they are also terrorizing anyone who doesn't get with their program within their borders. Trump let us know before he left Office that the Chinese have been involved in a Genocide with the Uighurs. But some professors claim that genocide is the wrong word and go as far as to say that China has every right to take action against them.
"Jeffrey Sachs, a professor at Columbia University, and William Schabas, a professor of law at Middlesex University in London, penned an op-ed in Project Syndicate arguing that “genocide” is an inappropriate charge against a country that is detaining a minority group against their will.
The duo also argues that China is justified in taking action against Uyghurs because the minority group is akin to terrorists who attacked the United States in September 2001.
“The US government needlessly escalated its rhetoric against China by claiming that a genocide is being mounted against the Uighur people in the Xinjiang region,” the article reads. “We must understand the context of the Chinese crackdown in Xinjiang, which had essentially the same motivation as America’s foray into the Middle East and Central Asia after the September 2001 attacks: to stop the terrorism of militant Islamic groups.”
“The Chinese Communist government views the Uighurs as a threat in part because some have sought great autonomy or even a separate state,” USA Today’s Deirdre Shesgreen wrote. “Chinese government officials allege there are extremists within the Uighur community and have said their campaign to ‘re-educate’ the Uighurs is justified by terrorism concerns.”
We may have detained terrorists, but we were not bringing our politicians into gang rape them, nor are we sterilizing and brainwashing anyone. Sterilizing a people is a form of genocide as it kills their future. We are nowhere near this level of evil. But these professors are likely on China's payroll.
