CHINA SLAMS US HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS

Yes, you read that headline correctly. The Chinese government is calling into question the USA’s human rights record. Check out this article from Zero Hedge’s “Tyler Durden”:

China Strikes Back at US Human Rights Violations

The article, as you’ll note, specifically references the NSA spying-Ed Snowden affair as the primary violation of human rights that the Chinese government has in mind, notwithstanding its own tight monitoring of internet traffic and banned websites, nonetheless the Chinese have a point, and it’s worth considering it in a wider context, for the article also mentions the innocent deaths caused by US drone strikes. It was only perhaps a matter of timing that prevented the Chinese report from mentioning US sponsorship of agents provocateur in the Ukrainian opposition, agents provocateur whose own ideologies and connections are at best Fascist and at worst neo-Nazi. Scarcely had the coup against the former Ukrainian government ended, and the world was informed of inflammatory and life-threatening remarks on the part of some of that Ukrainian “opposition” against that nation’s Jewish minority, remarks that received little attention in the US lamestream media. China could have easily pointed out the increasingly blatant hypocrisy of a nation insisting on its right to conduct such covert operations in another nation which falls in the sphere of influence of its ultimate geopolitical target – Russia – while it would decry any attempt of a foreign nation to conduct similar operations in, say, Mexico or Canada.

So herewith my high octane speculation of the day: what we may be looking at is the beginning of the Chinese component to a growing propaganda war that now appears to be escalating between the BRICSA nations – Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa and their associates – and an increasingly isolated USA.  Thus far, you’ll note, Russia has been in the forefront of this propaganda war, with the high-production value shows and reporting from RT(Russia Today), which, oftentimes appears much more objective and informational than that of the so-called free press of the West’s own lamestream media. Additionally, the attempts of the Western media to demonize Russian President Vladimir Putin have largely failed, at least among people who gain their information from the internet rather than from the major western television and radio sources. Thus far, however, China has been more or less “silent” on most issues.

So what can we expect? I strongly suspect that there will be an increased focus on American foreign policy, human rights, and further exposure of the NSA spying role to come from the other BRICSA nations. We’ve already heard from Brazil’s President Rousseff with that nation’s displeasure over the NSA spying. The country to watch will thus, in my opinion, be India, which has already voiced its own concerns over the issue of GMOs and the treatment of Indian farmers by agribusiness giants. If India starts to make that a human rights issue and couples it with the meme of “US human rights violations”, we’ll know the propaganda warfare game is indeed afoot.

See you on the flip side.

  1. Wonder what took them so long?

    It’s no secret that the internet has been instrumental in melting away nationalism amongst the plebeians of the world. Traditional us and them polemics once defined by national boundaries has given way to a growing mistrust of the respective governments by their citizenry. And perhaps this tidal shift is nowhere greater and more readily apparent than in the U.S. The opportunistic Chinese propaganda ministers have obviously decided to strike while the iron’s hot.

    • What is so striking is the obvious making(or continuing to press) of policies that are NOT in the people’s interest. The Corporate Governance has become the de-facto spoiled rotten-face of leadership worldwide; and that rottenness to the-core-smell is only intensifying. Indeed, the people are ripe for the propaganda pickings; for the truth has now become a revolutionary act whose soldiers are marching to the tune of cyberspace, in exponential leaps & bounds.

  2. So China ways into the media war, there’s no telling where this will end. However I would assume that Russia and China have enough bad deeds by the USA on record, and the threat of “leaking” some of these bad deeds to the media is something to contemplate.

    I’m going way out on the limb here but I believe that Russia AND China know all about 9/11, so just imagine the worldwide kafuffal if either country leaks all kinds of “goodies” to the media. That would be the straw that broke the camels back and would probably lead to the unthinkable. China, Russia, the BRICSA and just about the whole world has just about had enough of the USA’ meddling in what seems to be the elites never ending warmongering. The USA better be very careful about poking sticks into cages belonging to the two afore mentioned countries.

    • The problem with that is: ALL GOVERNMENTS have 9/11 skeletons in their closets. For instance, the Russian Apartments, supposedly bombed by Chechens(2000) was actually a Russian “inside job”/Darkness At Dawn: The Rise of the Russian Criminal State by David Satter.

      It would be great to see the Governments’ veil of lies come undone worldwide – including those histories that
      go back, …waaaaayyyyy back!

    • Right on! I served in the US Navy during the Vietnam war but never went over there. I was a hospital corpsman and worked with Army and Marine infantry with head and spine wounds. This slaughter was initiated by the Gulf of Tonkin Incident. I later heard a two star Admiral say that it was a farce. In any case, I despise both major parties because they are destroying my country. The American Empire is going down the tubes and I fear that the bankers, corporations and the idiots in Washington D.C. will start another massive war to boost the economy in the usual way and use the American Three Stooge networks and their fellow travelers to brainwash the American Sheeple once again. They had better realize that the oceans won’t protect American cities if the Israelis prod our military to hit Iran. America is finished in my opinion. I hate to say it but we are tipping backward into the trash heap of history. I do hope I am wrong though!

  3. I will mention only one human rights violation the rights of the Native Americans. FROM Canada to Argentina and Chile their rights and lives have been in danger. The USA seems to think it has to use a Chinese term A Mandate From Heaven to torture and kill these people through out the Americas. Some shining light on a hill their CIA hit teams have roam the world spreading democracy (tyranny) and freedom (oppression) for over sixty years.

    • I agree totally! I support the school in South Dakota which teaches the children in the Sioux Nation. They get no government support at all! Meanwhile, our wonderful drones are killing innocent people and American police have been shooting and beating unarmed people to death in California and other areas as well. My ancestry is German and I can state that we are beginning to resemble Germany in the 1930s. If our economy collapses, all hell is going to break loose in America. The millions of 40 caliber rounds that were purchased by Homeland Security are against the Geneva Convention or so I’ve heard. We used depleted Uranium shells in Iraq as well. This militarism cannot be stopped here because the majority of Americans believe in the flag waving and so called defense of our freedoms by starting wars based on lies and manipulating the Three Stooge networks to get the citizens of my country in a n idiot box inspired daze!

  4. It’s increasingly obvious that foreign press and foreign nations are far more concerned with America’s embrace of a fascist police state than are our domestic institutions.
    Not until Ms. Feinstein belatedly realized that she and her colleagues had been targeted by the CIA did she utter a peep of protest over their illegal domestic espionage.
    The NYT and the major networks remain in a complacent haze and will do so until they comprehend how much they’ve been manipulated and controlled by our “security” forces. Even then, they may say nothing. And indeed, to a comatose public, what is there to say?
