While so many institutions, practices and policies in the U.S. are perpetually contorted by so-called “political correctness” — like a twisted colon — meaning they’re full of…well, you know…China doesn’t mess around.
In an attempt to impede religious extremism, the Chinese government has commissioned more than one million people to take up residence in the homes of Uighur Muslim families…
I know — this sounds like fake news…
But it isn’t. The operatives move in — wholly invited — with the families to keep watch on them, ensuring extreme or unpatriotic beliefs aren’t taking hold.
The federal informants — who describe themselves as “relatives” of their involuntary hosts — are purportedly instructed to penetrate, infiltrate, and work the folks like crafty salesmen.
As an example, the agents will offer members of the family cigarettes and alcohol — extremists would refuse both.
They’re taking notes, studying who’s being bad or good, like a certain chubby, red-coated, white-bearded man who’s coming soon to town.
Dr. Darren Byler, who recently published his research on Asian society, explained:
“Had a Uighur host just greeted a neighbour in Arabic with the words ‘Assalamu Alaykum’? That would need to go in the notebook. Was that a copy of the Quran in the home? Was anyone praying on Friday or fasting during Ramadan? Was a little sister’s dress too long or a little brother’s beard irregular?”
Reportedly, up to a million Uighurs have been placed in governmental “re-education” centers, as an attempted shutdown of extremism.
Of course, such action is its own kind of extremism. Terrible extremism.
As stated by Byler, “relatives” were sent into Muslim homes for a 7-day assessment in 2017.
The Communist Party’s official newspaper, the New York Ti– I mean, the People’s Daily, seemed to confirm the claim, indicating that over 1.1 million people would be coupled with 1.69 million ethnic minorities in China by the end of September 2018.
Many of those families were previously quarantined for “re-education.”
The Chinese government has even been accused of forcing children from that group into orphanages, and of confiscating the Quran.
China is no doubt keeping its eye on Europe, intent to avoid cultural upset or terroristic evolution. Meanwhile, Islam is gaining momentum in American government (here and here) and political activism (here, here, and here).
Fortunately for us, America has a Bill of Rights. And — despite contemporary accusations among the Left — we have a President who touts freedom. May we stay as far away as possible from the way of China. And in the process, may we never see the turmoil of Europe.
The U.S. was designed as a haven of religious freedom, and this story should make us all a little more thankful for that. It certainly does me.
