    In all seriousness, if your only reference point for race relations is how minorities are treated in America, then of course everything is going to look like genocide. Luckily, not everyone is so cruel.
    You either have no idea what the word means, or more likely, you have the same amount of intellectual dishonesty as a Fox News evening show (which is none in case that wasn't obvious).

    Whataboutism is bringing something else up in order to avoid condemning something that is wrong. As opposed to drawing parallels between two different actions which are both condemned. If you were the slightest bit interested in an actual discussion rather than grabbing the first flimsy chance to yell 'gotcha' you would have been able to see that. Instead you have merely illustrated the value you add to any discussion (which is also none in case that wasn't obvious).

    Do you think the treatment of minorities in China is fair and equitable?

    Or in India? Or Pakistan’s? Or Africa?

    I can easily see that things are unfair in Western Europe and USA. But to me that seems far from unique.

    Okay guys, why is everyone pretending like China showed up in the 1950? China is ancient, with all the history great and terrible that comes with that.

    Stephen Miller spreading fear mongering on Fox and Friends. It's unfortunate that Fox News viewers believe anything they say.

    “Here’s a shocking thing for your audience to consider,” Miller said. “Nobody who mails in a ballot has their identity confirmed. Nobody checks to see if they’re even a U.S. citizen. Think about that. Any foreign national—talk about foreign election interference—can mail in a ballot, and nobody even verifies if they’re a citizen of the United States of America. Now, this would be happening on a scale of potentially millions of people.”

    Ballots only get counted when they match records of the person when they registered to vote. Argh ...

    Not Stupid. Miller is certainly evil and conniving, but not stupid.

    Poster from Germany here!

    Sadly, the crimes against Muslims in China are, by all appearances, very real. We have no Trump propaganda machine here, and we still get those reports.

    This is nothing like the "babies tron from incubators" about Iraq in 1991.

    Sorry to burst your bubble about your beloved China.

    New Coronavirus infections in Germany went up to over 1000 again on Friday, a level last seen on a regular basis in April and early May. We already were down to weekly averages of under 500. It's upsetting that people are getting so complacent even here. There also was a big protest by the the "masks off" idiots in Berlin yesterday. 20,000 people. When police ended the event because of countless rule violations (no masks, no social distancing etc), 18 cops ended up injured.

    The ethnic composition of the XUAR has shifted in the past half century. A 1953 government census found that Han Chinese constituted 6 percent of the XUAR's population of 4.87 million, while Uighurs made up 75 percent. The 2000 census listed the Han population at 40.57 percent and Uighurs at 45.21 percent of a total population of 18.46 million.

    Shame! Shame! Shame on the person on this board whose drawing an equivalence between China’s totalitarian state and American democracy. There is no equivalence!!!

    1.Forced Organ Harvesting.

    Mosher described how a young prisoner was brought into the room with his hands and feet tied. He was very much alive. The army doctor in charge then swiftly cut the young man open from his chest to his belly button to expose his two kidneys.
    The doctor was then quoted as telling the intern to “cut the veins and arteries.” The intern followed the doctor’s instructions, and “blood spurted everywhere.” The kidneys were removed and placed in a container designed for transporting organs for transplant.
    Mosher wrote, “Then the doctor ordered George to remove the man’s eyeballs. Hearing that, the dying prisoner gave him a look of sheer terror, and George froze. ‘I can’t do it,’ he told the doctor, who then quickly scooped out the man’s eyeballs himself.

    2. Extreme torture once you’ve been tried by a tribunal

    There, he was subjected to electric shocks, medical tests, forced feedings, beatings, violent sexual assaults and other barbaric forms of torture designed by prison guards to humiliate and inflict maximum pain.
    But it was one particularly savage punishment that etched the deepest psychological scar on Mr Liu.
    “The incident which marked me the most was when they, four of (the prison guards), stripped me of my clothes, and used the toilet brush to pierce my anus, saying that they would pierce until I turned homosexual,” Mr Liu told news.com.au.
    “They pulled my pubic hairs and played with my genitals.”

    4. Gang rapes and forced sterilization

    Former detainees have claimed women are sexually abused in camps - with one even describing how an inmate was gang-raped by cops in front of 200 detainees for 'sinning'.
    "While they were raping her they checked to see how we were reacting," camp survivor Sayragul Sauytbay told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz last October.
    Forced abortions and contraceptives have also been reported in The Washington Post and Haaretz...Perhat told The Post she was repeatedly raped by Chinese guards; she twice found herself pregnant and had the pregnancies forcibly terminated.

    I haven’t even touched on America’s colonial past vs Mao’s legacy, LGBT rights, racism, the torture of trade union representatives, the unlawful detention of foreigners, lord help me if I do.

    Shame! Shame! shame on this person I say! Do not give him the dialogue, and god bless America! Canada will be waiting with open arms once you’ve thrown that bozo out of power in November.

    What are they hiding?

    The vote to renominate President Trump is set to be conducted in private later this month, without members of the news media present. If the GOP decision stands, it will mark the first party nominating convention in modern history closed to reporters.

    Not even close. Kid Jackboot, like Trump, was sowing the seeds of suspicion of mail-in balloting. Miller knows what he said was bullshit, but it's effective in cranking up the paranoia of the brainless boobs who watch Faux News 24/7.

    Plenty, but that might not be why Trump is doing this. He lives for his grievances (real and imagined) and gets triggered every time any reporter doesn't play the part of his bootlicker. Add that to the decades-long sustained attack by Republicans on any non right-wing media and this should play very well with his base.

    He'll probably also take the opportunity to do some stuff when no one can see, but I dont think that is the primary reason.
