Rounding Up a Despised Minority and Herding Them Into Camps

It sounds familiar somehow. But wouldn’t the press, UN, and others be up in arms over it? No, Impeachment is more popular. ‘Absolutely No Mercy’: Leaked Files Expose How China Organized Mass Detentions of Muslims.

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.

So what did these minorities do? They dared to think thoughts that were not approved by the party.

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.

Ratko Mladic Guilty of Genocide

People don’t even remember the war in Bosnia, let alone the people who were responsible for the atrocities. Ex-Bosnian Serb commander Mladic convicted of genocide, gets life in prison.

Both Republican (Bush the Elder) and Democratic (WJ Clinton) administrations ignored the war in Bosnia, even though it was waging only a couple of hundred miles from Germany. Or so. But then people don’t remember how World War One got started.

The U.N. Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia found Mladic guilty of 10 of 11 charges, including the slaughter of 8,000 Muslim men and boys at Srebrenica and the siege of the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, in which more than 10,000 civilians were killed by shelling and sniper fire over 43 months.

As for the United Nations, their role in Srebrenica has been white-washed.

The Dutch peacekeepers looked on helplessly as Serb forces separated men and boys from women, then sent them out of sight on buses or marched them away to be shot.

The UN Peacekeepers put up no resistance when confronted by Serbs. And stationing UN “troops” in Srebrenica was just stationing a supply depot for the Serbs.

It is hard to learn the lessons of history, if no one studies history. And no one remembers Srebrenica.
