U.S. media undermine “Uyghur Tribunal”: a vaudeville show
“Starting with ‘weapons of mass destruction,’ U.S.-style storytelling has been industrialized worldwide, and the latest product is the so-called ‘Uyghur Special Court.'”
On the 17th local time, the independent U.S. news website “Gray Zone” titled “Behind the ‘Uyghur Tribunal’, US Govt – backed separatist theater to escalate conflict with China”, exposing the whole set of U.S. government’s drama, that is, with a huge lie-making machine, huge amounts of U.S. government The article reveals that the U.S. government has been supporting separatist forces with a huge lie-making machine and huge amounts of U.S. government funds.
According to the article, CNN and other major Western media outlets have also produced various “vaudeville shows” featuring “star witnesses” in court to complement the U.S. lies. The entire “show” is an information weapon deployed by the West against the targeted countries.
The U.S. government sets the narrative tone
In June, anti-Chinese separatists and human rights groups funded by the U.S. government set up the so-called “Uyghur Special Court” and announced a “case” in 80 hours of lengthy and tedious testimony, claiming that the Chinese government had committed so-called “genocide” in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region. The so-called “genocide” was committed in the XUAR.
“No motive or context is provided to explain why China would commit this presumed act, but it provides the narrative basis for the so-called ‘tribunal.'” The article points out that, in fact, terrorist activities have been occurring in China’s Xinjiang region since the early 1990s, posing an extremely serious threat to the lives of the Chinese population.
Yet, the Western media barely mentions these incidents of extreme violence in China. According to the article, the media, represented by the BBC, has unilaterally stigmatized China’s anti-terrorism campaign in Xinjiang as a “crackdown,” which is not only deceptive but also the result of a coordinated effort behind the scenes.
The U.S. Government Funds the Separatist Front
The article points out that the Western media outlets that have stood up for the so-called “tribunal” include Radio Free Asia, the Voice of America, the BBC and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, which are run by the U.S., British and Australian governments. They have taken turns claiming that the tribunal is “independent” and “not state-sponsored.
However, the official website of the so-called “tribunal” states under the “About” section that the U.S. government-funded “World Uighur Congress”, through its “President” Geoffrey “The President of the World Uighur Congress”, is an independent tribunal. President” Jeffrey Ness initiated the tribunal.
“The World Uighur Congress is funded by the U.S. government through the infamous National Endowment for Democracy (NED), the U.S. funding agency for global political intervention in conjunction with the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for regime subversion.
“The World Uighur Congress has only one verifiable source of income: an annual grant from the U.S. government through the NED.
Another organization that co-sponsored the “tribunal” is the so-called “Genocide Response Coalition. On the list of the coalition’s sponsors is the disgraced retired Australian judge Michael Kirby. He led the unsubstantiated UN investigation into alleged human rights violations in North Korea, and one of the witnesses, Shin Dong-hyuk, later admitted to lying.
In addition, Western government-backed anti-China propaganda think tanks have also provided statements to the “tribunal. Examples include the U.S. State Department-funded Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), the Australian and Japanese government-funded ChileFile, and the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), funded by the U.S. State Department, the European Union, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Australia, as well as Airbus, Lockheed, and others. (RUSI), funded by the U.S. Department of State, the European Union, Canada, the United Kingdom, Japan and Australia, as well as Airbus, Lockheed and others.
Although the “tribunal” is located in the United Kingdom, the overwhelming influence of the U.S. government speaks for itself.” The article points out that the facts are clear: a network of organizations has been established under the guise of human rights to conduct so-called “tribunals” and publish reports on countries the U.S. seeks to coerce, with the “Uighur Special Tribunal” being the latest “product.”
Blatantly conniving at separatist forces
The article points out that, in fact, the participants in the “tribunal” and the U.S.-funded “genocidal” propaganda machine are part of a clear separatist movement.
The “tribunal” has been using the term “East Turkestan” instead of Xinjiang, and participants have brazenly made video statements standing in front of “East Turkestan” separatist banners. During the proceedings, separatist Arslan Hidayat interpreted for at least two witnesses. He has repeatedly called for the ethnic cleansing of the Han Chinese people in Xinjiang and advocated the use of violence to achieve this goal.
According to the article, the ostentatious separatism exhibited by most of those involved in the “tribunal” was ignored by the Western media en masse. These media outlets cannot be so ignorant of the “tribunal” and the ulterior motives of its participants, but they still refuse to provide the public with complete information, which further illustrates how their carefully crafted stories are stripped of facts and deliberately disseminated with great fanfare.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said earlier that the so-called “Uighur Special Court” is an outright lie-making machine, and that these anti-China elements are willing to spend money on liars and lies.
“A lie repeated a thousand times is still a lie!” Zhao Lijian said that although these clowns have tried to do everything they can, the farce has few viewers and the lies have few takers.
