CNN reports on Chinese torture. Rest of media ignores it

Kudos to CNN for its report, "Chinese detective in exile reveals extent of torture against Uyghurs."

The story detailed how officials round-up hundreds of Uyghurs in the middle of the night and then beat them.

He said, "Everyone uses different methods. Some even use a wrecking bar, or iron chains with locks. Police would step on the suspect's face and tell him to confess."

Life Site News said, "CNN has published an important story in which a former Chinese policeman describes in vivid, first-person terms, how he systematically tortured Uyghurs to garner false confessions. He was told when assigned to the crackdown that he was arresting terrorists. But he soon learned they were just ordinary people living routine lives disapproved of by the regime.

"No matter. Confessions were to be had! It’s real Fourth Reich stuff that is not for the squeamish."

The mainstream media refused to pick up on the story. The only pick-up I found was a New York Post rewrite.

It said, "Chinese authorities subjected Uyghur Muslim detainees to being hanged from cell ceilings, tortured with electric batons and gang-raped by fellow prisoners, a former detective claimed in a bombshell interview.

"The ex-officer, who was only identified as Jiang over fears the Chinese government would retaliate against his family still living in the country, described the extreme torture tactics that were used in order to extract confessions as part of a ethnic cleaning campaign, CNN reported."

Life Site called for a boycott of Red China's Olympics this winter.

I ask again, why are we doing any business with them?

As for the American media, they gave up on journalism long ago.

Kudos to CNN for a story everyone should read.

  1. We are doing business with them because they are the sole source for almost everything we consume. Weaning our selves will take a concerted effort, strong commitment and won't happen over night. The question is does American business have the stomach to do it?

    1. We are the ultimate consumers and we can do it as long as we bear in mind that Chinese quality controls are a good measure below ours.

    2. Not always true. Lots of things they get right. I've read from some folks ordering that the chinese came in cheaper and with higher quality than American produced parts.
      We shouldn't really have a hard time beating their quality, but the unions are in bed with quid pro eff joe biden.

    3. We do not. We only have GDP of about 10% tied up in trade and Mexico and Canada are most of that.

      We are into China because large multinationals saw cost savings and access to 1.5 Billion people. The 1.5 Billion people thing is proving to not really exist. Their cost advantage is a little misleading, and those commodity items are being shipped off to other countries, while the expensive stuff is coming back home or other more secure trading partners - Mexico in particular. They do have particular segments where they are very strong of course. But they are under a ton of pressure, their energy situation is a problem, and the friction in the global logistics network is costing them customers, even in commodity products where they are a good competitor.

      Xi is in a bit of a pickle.

  2. "I ask again, why are we doing any business with them?"

    China is huge and not monolithic. I have to assume there are plenty of Chinese citizens who hate their government even more than we hate Biden's regime. I also assume there are many, many legitimate and honest business relationships between companies here and in China. I guess what I'm saying is be careful not to toss out the baby with the bathwater with blanket statements. F**k Xi is much better than f**k China, just like f**k Biden is much better than f**k America, although f**k America seems to be the marching orders all over DC. Say what you want about Hitler; at least his main goal wasn't the destruction his own country.

    1. But China, I note, is not in the business of turning its majority into a minority.

  4. We (as in all industrialized democratic countries) should de-couple from China. Made-in-China should not be the sole source, or almost, of products that we consume. Shame on us. Start buying goods made in your own country or in countries other than China. We are not changing China; they are changing us.

    1. “ We are not changing China; they are changing us.”
      So well said. Sadly.

    2. Corporations are changing us. Joined at the hip with democrats, the billionaires see a much larger market with huge profit potential.
      I read that hollyweird really isn't too worried about whether we go to movies or not, the profit from the chinese market more than beats the profit from us.
      Which why the knees in hollyweirds pants always have holes in them from their lust of their chinese overlords.

    3. Actually - major corps are moving away because there isn't a consumer products market of 1.5B.

      Hollywood is an interesting situation. Yes, they are kowtowing to China to try and get more eyes on the screen. However I have read what China is bringing in, doesn't equal what they are losing here. Whose right? China highly regulates when the films get released. And streaming service numbers wildly overstate paying customer numbers from international locales. The entertainment field appears to be the ones where they believe the 1.5B eyes could make a difference, and they may be right - The NBA is definitely supporting their problems in the USA with big money from China. MLB has decided to go that route as well.

  5. It is curious that CNN would go with this story. Doesn't AT&T have China connections?

    1. I was surprised too. It came out of CNN Europe so who knows?

    2. "Who knows" is the most appropriate response to just about any "news" story nowadays. (Initially posted this in the wrong place.)

    3. No, Jeffery. There are trustworthy outlets.

      That's why you're always wrong.

    5. Hey edutcher, he said"news" story, not fake news story.
      When they, meaning the collectivist heads, call it fake news, you can rest assured it's pretty dang close to the truth.
      Occasionally the"news" media let's something slip at which time we need to ask why.
      As to trustworthy outlets, Don had a pretty good list. CNN is not on it, but OAN is on mine as is CFP and Daily Wire. I also trust Sundance at the tree house.

    6. There’s an excellent chance CNN posted this story to give the current illegitimate Pantload Regime and its “intelligence and law enforcement” personnel ideas on how to quell the growing revolt among the Americans Uyghurs (aka Trump supporters).

      If you don’t think so, you’re hopelessly naive.

      Hey Don, have you learned how to Ballot Harvest yet? If not, what are you waiting for? Take your own advice; why don’t you.

  17. This editorialist [Edsell] is aware of all shades of opinion, but has chosen to deflect attention from those of us - a viable number - why identify as racists. One would think that racism is intellectually indefensible, never mind that racism has for 375 years been the default philosophy of our once-white country.
    My hope is that as Aryans are more and more shunted off into dark corners, my hope, as I was saying, is that white people will revert to the sort of anti-black and antisemitic attitudes that characterized our best moments in the antebellum South and finally take measures to restore negroes to slavery.

  18. Stacy's writing continually gets better and better and is far more sophisticated than anything to be found in The New York Times, The Washington Post, or elsewhere in the Jewish press.
