RARE color photos from #WW2 offer a chilling look at evil that should inform the way we see #China’s modern-day #ConcentrationCamps in #EastTurkistan (what Communists call “#Xinjiang”).

True evil isn’t some distant black & white memory; it’s alive today, in living color.
… I see only two key differences between what #Nazi Germany did to Jews, Catholics, Roma, LGBT people, disabled people, & so many others, and what Communist #China‘s doing to #Uyghurs, #Kazakhs, #Kyrgyz, #Uzbeks, #Tatars, #FalunGong, & so many others…
… (1) #Nazi Germany forced people to outwardly identify themselves w/ symbols (inc. the Yellow Star of David), whilst #China’s authorities seem to prefer secret digital records; & (2) the #Nazis killed quickly, whilst China’s authorities appear to be killing slowly… for now.

Not surprising that #China‘s lying about its demographic data. We can’t trust the #CCP’s numbers. Ex.: Communist authorities say #Uyghurs’ population numbers ~10M, yet #Uighurs routinely insist to me that #EastTurkistan’s (“#Xinjiang’s”) overall Turkic pop. is 2x to 3x that (!)…
… if that’s any truth to that, then the actual numbers of detained persons in #EastTurkistan could be even *higher* than estimated (as estimates that “1 out of every X number of people are detained” would be skewed if we‘re starting by underestimating the base population)…
… those types of estimates tend to come about by looking at the number of people “missing” from everyday places, like markets. The other types of estimates come from looking at the theoretical holding capacities of detention facilities, but these estimates are problematic, too…

The #TIP (Turkistan Islamic Party) doesn’t enjoy the support of the majority (or even a large minority) of #Uyghurs (a moderate people). It’s a small, fringe, extremist group which appears to directed by one major gov’t near #Syria, to the detriment of #EastTurkistan’s people.
… gov’ts who are supporting the #TIP (Turkistan Islamic Party) are betraying the interests of #EastTurkistan’s people. #Uyghurs have no interests in #Syria & are being radicalized in an malicious, cynical plot to attack both #Assad & the #Kurds. State support for them MUST stop.
… this effort to radicalize #Uyghurs to attack #Assad & the #Kurds only plays into #China’s fabricated narrative, which paints all #Uighurs as being “terrorists,” when in reality these few thousand crazies represent less than 1% of #China-Occupied #EastTurkistan’s population.

Struck up a convo w/ what I suspect was a young IC recruit yesterday. They lived abroad in #China, spoke Chinese, called it “#Xinjiang” (not #EastTurkistan), insisted the @USNavy could never challenge the #PLA Navy in the SCS, that the Chinese have no interest in Democracy. 1/3
… & that #China’s rise poses no imminent threat to America. “So you don’t think the #CCP has a plan to supplant the US as the world’s dominant superpower?” “Not in my lifetime,” they insisted. “Really,” I asked, “not even by 2049?” They responding unblinkingly, “oh, no way!” 2/3
… if these are the kind of denialist, can’t-do-attitude types certain intel agencies are now scraping from the bottom of the Ivy League barrel, perhaps #China really will win. Disheartened to see bright young people buy in to orthodox thought that’s been consistently wrong. 3/3

I have received many new followers in recent days from the sovereign & independent lands of #EastTurkistan, #Tibet, #Manchuria, #SouthernMongolia, #Taiwan, #HongKong, #Canton, & even places that don’t quite exist (yet), like #Jinland, #Basuria, #Nguyuit, etc., which are all…
… currently wrongfully claimed as part of “#China” by China’s illegitimate, totalitarian regime. These people who are willing to assert their Independence from China’s Communist Party deserve to be celebrated, & I’m honored that they’re following me. I‘ll continue to support…
… their aspirations to be free from the #EvilEmpire currently enslaving them, and in time, I believe more Americans will join me. All people living under the #CCP deserve to be freed from their shackles.

#China” is not a nation; China is a prison for nations. Resist the CCP!

Today is #InternationalWomensDay. Please remember the brave women suffering in #China-Occupied #EastTurkistan. They’re facing tremendous abuses at the hands of Chinese occupation forces. There, these ethnically-Turkic women are being forced to marry Han Chinese men. Many…
… have been thrown into prisons, #ConcentrationCamps, & Bingtuan #LaborCamps., where they face brainwashing, beatings, torture, rape, forced abortions, & involuntary medication. The mothers amongst them have had their beautiful children thrown into Chinese state-run orphanages…
… & of those who’ve survived, many are unsure about the whereabouts of their husbands, children, & other loved ones.

I support #IndependenceForEastTurkistan in part because I support #WomensRights… & the rights of all people to Life, Liberty, & the pursuit of Happiness.
