U.S. President Donald Trump’s heavy-handed response to George Floyd protests has given China’s propaganda machine invaluable fodder to slam the U.S. for hypocrisy in its support of anti-gover…

Chinese diplomats, officials and state-run media are having a field day with the extensive policing the U.S. has deployed in response to protests across the nation, with many making opportune statements in support of racial equality — despite the fact that China currently holds an estimated one million ethnic minority Uighurs in internment camps in its Xinjiang region.

China’s state media has nonetheless flocked to use the woke language of the Black Lives Matter movement to draw attention to the U.S.’s current situation — and point out how American officials who have expressed support for pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have taken the opposite position over similarly sweeping protests at home.

The editor-in-chief of China’s Global Times Hu Xijin gleefully tweeted, “The beautiful sight defined by U.S. politicians has eventually extended from Hong Kong to the U.S. Now they can witness it by their home windows.” Trump’s threat to deploy active-duty U.S. armed forces against American civilians engaged in the protests almost ominously coincide with one of the darkest days of modern Chinese history: June 4, 1989, the day of the Tiananmen Square massacre, when peaceful protesters calling for reforms were quelled by the Chinese army in the heart of Beijing.

I have been in Xinjiang and I can tell you that it is basically a huge jail for Uighur. Monitors everywhere and heavy-armed polices everywhere. Uighur has no right to freely travel on the highway. Look back, Black in America can be a president!

Not according ot the polls which say most Americans want military and police to put down the rioting.

China Trumpets Trump’s Attacks on American Protests to Counter Criticism on Hong KongBeijing is calling attention to unrest in the U.S., the police response and President Trump’s call for a tougher crackdown on protesters to highlight what it regards as American hypocrisy. India's coronavirus cases reach 2,07,615 still be very far away for the peak... This ingrained, systemic inequality and resentment is precisely what Putin recognized when he sent Trump to exacerbate that fragmentation to destabilize the US. The World sees us more clearly than we do. Can we fashion a mirror and heal before fate chooses for us?

Chinese state media lash out at the U.S. for threatening Hong Kong and China with sanctionsChina's state media is hitting back at American President Donald Trump's announcement last week that he would be revoking Hong Kong's favored trade status with the U.S. China could not possibly believe that their actions in Hong Kong would have no consequences. This pearl clutching by the CCP is laughable.
