It is human to Err but inhuman to be without empathy.
Billionaire investor Chamath Palihapitiya is clarifying comments he made about the ongoing human rights abuses against the Uyghurs in China An elite, a refugee citizen of an awesome Democratic country. A newly minted capitalist billionaire, a person known for being a voice of consciousness. Yet in a podcast, he was asked about Uyghurs of China facing cultural and literal genocide. His answer is he cared least for it. Then to clarify his statement because it sounded without humanity in it. He equated America to China in calling out injustice.
All injustice in the world.
What a baloney!
What is happening to the Uyghurs Muslims in China?
A Muslim community that is in concentration camp in Communist China by the million.Not only concentration camp but said to be centers of organ harvesting to forced sterilization of Uyghurs so as not to reproduce. Good old fashioned reeducation camp that tries to stop faith of Islam from being practiced. Pray five times a day, that is against the sinicization process. To pray facing Mecca is immoral, when you can face chairman Mao Tomb and soon Great Leader Xi for spiritual guidance. Mosques who need that, tear them down, just to be sure to tear down churches too. Belief in Saints well we have communist heroes they are saints now. As for sites of saints’ burials for Sufi Muslims, tear them down too. All this done to turn Turkic origin ancestry of Xinjiang, Uyghurs call it east Turkmenistan into more take a guess Chinese. They actually call it Sinicization. What’s that, a Minaret on a mosque, tear it down, make it look more Chinese.
Can you imagine a similar process anywhere in the world today? Can you imagine if America tried to enforce Europeanization into us Immigrants, Black, peoples of Color and faiths forced into Atheism if it were the state preferred dogma. The communist is an Atheist system at war with faith always. Where the state mechanization meaning the party and whoever controls it decides even your level of spirituality. In essence even your salvation is an issue for communist to control.
Why is the communist doing this to Uyghurs Muslims?
Apparently Islam the faith is terrorism under China Communism. In the name of countering terorrism: terror is subjected by the state on all its muslim nationals in China. From massive permanently invasive surveillance systems to controls that make George Orwell Blush in his underestimation of evil of people controlled by the state
You cannot equate our American system which faced terror when over 3,000 of its citizens got killed on September 11th, 2001 mass carnage event. To Equivocate with Communist China is doing to its Muslim citizens. We Muslims in America well we did and some of us are still getting massive surveillance and all that comes with it. But no concentration camp, no forced sterilization, no europeanization, no forced dogma of any religion or lack there of it. All these freedoms exist in America. We Americans will not claim perfection but in Summer 2000 when our cities burned in civil unrest our government did not put millions into concentration camps as a response. To even equate the level of justice and injustice in America to China is no better than comparing apples to oranges.
Trust an Elite to favor moralization and even in clarification get it wrong. I am an immigrant, a Muslim, blackman and a very vocal individual who pushes his government in dialogue and engagement using non violence means of persuasion. If I were in China, I would be in Jail or dead, yet here in America our State Department Awards us Citizen Diplomat of the Year 2020. Why I will always remind you all. America is the last bastion of Freedom for Citizens in the annals of Humanity. China under communism is where the citizen is subjugated and destroyed by the party including Islam and any faith belief. Between the two systems. As an Average Mohamed Muslim of the world we easily choose American Democracy over Communism Dogma of the Party or Politburo of China. In Democracy you find Freedom, Liberties, Rights and equal Opportunity compared to Slavery of forced labor and concentration camps, for being a Muslim under Communism in China.
Yeah, we call this billionaires equivocation BALONEY!
