Authorities in Chinas far western Xinjiang province have made loyalty to President Xi Jinping a central part of an extensive political re-education campaign that requires detainees to swear allegiance to the Communist Party while forswearing a Muslim faith that they are told to repeat is stupid.
Large numbers researchers estimate the total in the hundreds of thousands of people have been placed in Chinese facilities known as re-education centres, where they are forcibly indoctrinated. Many of those detained are Muslim Uyghurs and Kazakhs accused of incorrect thinking in the midst of a campaign that has treated what authorities consider radical tendencies as a public-health crisis that must be expunged.
Now, interviews with people who have been in those centres show that Chinas current leader, who has orchestrated a personalization of power not seen in China since the days of Mao Zedong, occupies a place of singular importance in Chinas efforts to rectify what it deems errant thinking.
Xi Jinping is great! The Communist Party is great! I deserve punishment for not understanding that only President Xi Jinping and the Communist Party can help me, was one of the refrains that a Uyghur woman who was in a centre last fall, was forced to regularly repeat.
The woman, whose name is not being used by The Globe and Mail for her protection, was put through regular self-criticism sessions. Part of the content was cultural. My soul is infected with serious diseases, she would repeat. There is no God. I dont believe in God. I believe in the Communist Party.

If Bernie and friends won this is how we'd be treated too..
Ironic, isn’t it? The souls of insane, rabid Democrats really are infected with serious diseases, but’s we conservatives respect everybody’s right to free thought and speech.
Those infected Democrats would love to re-educate, incarcerate or murder conservatives who want nothing more than to be left alone to pursue their own lives in peace without liberal intolerance.
while forswearing a Muslim faith that they are told to repeat is stupid.
Islam isn’t stupid, it is evil.
I doubt this effort works.
Churchill was right that there was no more retrograde force on earth than Islam.
It’s not covered in our news but China has been having a serious internal war in its western provinces with Muslim insurgencies.
The next step is for the decision to be made to simply kill all muslims in those provinces.
The Chinese will do that, eventually.
The Chinese government is moving Han Chinese into the sparsely populated western provinces, pushing the natives into the periphery and trying to eradicate their culture. Government surveillance is omnipresent
If it wasn’t doing that, but still took care to prevent Salafi and Wahhabi influence on the Uighurs, then it probably wouldn’t have a Muslim problem there.
Xi isn’t all that different from NK’s Kim, and the Chinese fascists are a bigger threat to us in the long term than the Muslims.
It would be so much easier if they just moved to a Communist hellhole rather than inflicting that horror here... but I guess the plan is for them to be 'on top' - not part of the suffering masses.
Can't argue that point. But Communism does run a very close second.
Have you noticed that Islamists are not condemning China and calling it the Great Satan and declaring jihad?
They know the commies won’t hesitate to retaliate.
These reeducation camps coming to America if Democrats get control, global warming and any other progressive agenda.
