But then the Media, the West generally were quiet during The Cultural Revolution, which was similarly hard on minority communities in China.

More than 400 pages of internal Chinese documents provide an unprecedented inside look at the crackdown on ethnic minorities in the Xinjiang region.

“Ethnic Minorities,” in this case, is NYSlimes weasel-wording for Uighur Muslims.

And if anyone dared to ask where their family members had gone…

The guide recommended increasingly firm replies telling the students that their relatives had been “infected” by the “virus” of Islamic radicalism and must be quarantined and cured. Even grandparents and family members who seemed too old to carry out violence could not be spared, officials were directed to say.

But you could substitute “Conservatism” for “Islamic radicalism” and the folks behind Antifa would be happy to unleash the same thing in this country.

Hat tip to The American Conservative, and Instapundit, who says, “I EAGERLY AWAIT COLIN KAEPERNICK AND THE NBA’S FORCEFUL CONDEMNATION OF THIS.” Me? I’m not holding my breath.
