Anthology of cold war propaganda

 

Blog 207

The horrible thing about the Two Minutes Hate was not that one was obliged to act a part, but that it was impossible to avoid joining in. Within thirty seconds any pretence was always unnecessary. A hideous ecstasy of fear and vindictiveness, a desire to kill, to torture, to smash faces in with a sledge hammer, seemed to flow through the whole group of people like an electric current, turning one even against one’s will into a grimacing, screaming lunatic. And yet the rage that one felt was an abstract, undirected emotion which could be switched from one object to another like the flame of a blowlamp.” (Nineteen Eighty-four, by George Orwell : chapter1.1)

This blog is nowhere near exhaustive. It is intended to serve no purpose other than a quick one-port call to obtain a more balanced view of the more egregious unlikelihoods promoted by western propaganda agencies in their anxiety to restrict the economic growth of Russia and China. It is envisaged that it will have to be continuously updated as the cold war progresses and the associated lies and mistruths proliferate.

The alliance of western nations clustered around the USA is engaged in a major propaganda campaign. The primary aim of this campaign is to justify the extraction of enormous sums from the pockets of their citizens to be spent on their ‘defence’ at the expense of their wellbeing. These eye-watering wastes go to line the pockets of the multiple interests vested in the military industrial complex.

There is a secondary aim that is less likely to be achieved, the containment and then removal of the Chinese one-party, consensual, socialist/capitalist hybrid political system. It is seen as posing a threat to the western exploitative system. Its apparent success is such that it could be seen as having the potential to offer the example of a more attractive and effective deliverer of human happiness than the majority of the West’s so called ‘democracies.’ As Biden has recently admitted, the CCP is proving so effective in government that they ‘will eat our lunch.’ (One might infer from this culturally revealing comment that he believes the lunch the Chinese are cooking should by right belong to the Americans.)

To achieve either of these goals the western leadership has first to persuade its citizens of the hostility and threat to their interests posed by the Russian and Chinese bloc. To prevent these goals being achieved, the Chinese alliance has to effectively rebut the outrageous and false claims that issue from the West’s highly sophisticated propaganda machine. What follow is a browsable anthology of the propaganda battle for the hearts and minds of the west’s population. No pretence is made that it is exhaustive – it is just random items and events that have drawn attention while surfing the net.

Here follow some of the claims about China successfully implanted in the minds of so many western politicians, journalists and others exposed to western social and main-stream media:-

At the moment the Western media is awash with personalised stories of the sufferings of selected Uighur refugees. Bearing in mind that Xinjiang, now free of terrorism, faced an American supported Islamist terrorist insurrection that slaughtered multiple innocents, and multiple relations of these frenzied Muslims have been embraced with open arms by the USA and UK’s hate-China campaigns . When you have read this article you can no longer believe every heart- rending story (some of which might well be true) that western media throws at its public while prepping them for war.

China is an enemy of democracy.

 
The question, which seems straightforward, hides several cultural and political landmines. Here are some
  • China is one of the world’s leading democracies. No matter how you slice it–constitutionally, electively, popularly, procedurally, operationally, substantively financially, even theocratically–China comes out ahead. In survey after survey, it’s the most trusted government in the world and its policies enjoy the highest support. Its constitution guarantees its democracy (America’s does not) and its results are the most democratic on earth. Don’t believe me? Read Selling Democracy to China.
  • Our Western, Roman political tradition is monarchical and its legitimacy rests on force. It has always permitted public criticism if it is impotent. Real criticism, however, is punished by violent suppression, imprisonment, or assassination.
  • The Chinese political tradition is Confucian and its legitimacy rests on its compassionate care for its people:
  • The reason the State enjoys a formidable legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese has nothing to do with democracy but can be found in the relationship between the State and Chinese civilization. The State is seen as the embodiment, guardian and defender of Chinese civilization. Maintaining the unity, cohesion and integrity of the Chinese civilization-state is perceived as the highest political priority, the sacrosanct task of the Chinese State. Unlike in the West, where the State is viewed with varying degrees of suspicion, even hostility and regarded, as a consequence, as an outsider, in China the state is seen as an intimate, as part of the family, indeed as the head of the family. Martin Jacques, When China Rules the World:

Western propaganda keeps retelling the story of the CCP’s massacre of students on Tiananmen Square.

https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/article/timeline-tiananmen-square/   The background to the Tiananmen affair that permanently changed China’s internal political dynamic (for the better – if you ask the 90%+ of the population who approve current government policy.) The coincidence of the failure of Mao’s desperate attempt in the Cultural Revolution to force Marxist ideology down the throats of an impoverished and long-suffering population not ready for it, with the demise of the communist regime in Russia and the general popularity of a then ascendant USA. presented a severe challenge to the legitimacy of the then Chinese communist regime. It is still a matter of deep regret in China that its embryonic reform process got so out of control. In the following thirty years the lessons learnt have been effectively applied.

Newlines Genocide 1 or 30 minute read There is a lucrative career to be made in war-mongering for MI5 and the CIA! There is no attempt made to explain why this ‘genocide’ (that inexplicably coincides with rapid population growth) is happening. No comparisons are drawn with the death and destruction of whole cities caused by the US campaign to root out Islamic Militancy and terrorism from the Middle East, nor the encouragement and assistance given by the US to separatism in Xinjiang. https://thediplomat.com/tag/china-terrorist-attacks/

Nor is it pointed out that it is not only the Uighurs but also the Han Chinese who have long been subjected to draconian measures to limit population growth. In fact while Han Chinese couples were allowed only one child, Uighurs were allowed two. There is no doubt that the Chinese government is pursuing a vast and far-reaching ‘re-education’ and integration campaign. It is also hard to imagine that such a campaign conducted by a government that saw itself as threatened by US attempts to destabilise it, could be conducted without any of the human relapses into violence and barbarism recorded by Azeem. The difference is that after the eggs in Xinjiang have been broken, the people will have an omelette to enjoy. Whereas, all the US has left behind in Iraq, Syria and elsewhere in its forever war on terror is a scrambled mess on the floor for the impoverished and traumatised locals to clean up.

They have imprisoned at least a million Uighurs. The western media keeps on reporting the figure of between 1 and 3 million Uighurs imprisoned in China’s western province of Xinjian. Two minutes of Google research reveal “The American criminal justice system holds almost 2.3 million people in 1,833 state prisons, 110 federal prisons, 1,772 juvenile correctional facilities, 3,134 local jails, 218 immigration detention facilities, and 80 Indian Country jails as well as in military prisons, civil commitment centres, state psychiatric (7000+ facilities for 2.3 million inmates) … “ASPI, the Australian MIC think-tank, claims to have discovered through satellite imagery 380 detention facilities in Xinjiang.  With one million prisoners, the Chinese confinement centres must be horribly overcrowded. My guess is that the average population of detainees/trainees is probably around 30,000 at any given time – and the average duration of attendance approx. 1 month.

Belief in God is not permitted and places of worship destroyed.

Shahamad Khan Professor at Milan, Italy (2010–present)What is happening to Uighurs within Chinese concentration camps?

China is doing nothing wrong. I have personally visited China as one of my projects about how to uplift Muslims and clearly these camps are uplifting them and turning them to modern Muslims. They are given proper food and shelter. they are being trained in life skills like shoemaking, pisciculture, food processing, etc. They are also given the Chinese Quran which is a modified and progressive version of the Quran, I was shown an English copy of the same and they have removed verses that demean non-Muslims and teach them how to eliminate them. It has also modified prayers to one time from actual five but tells to do it five times in the evening. which helps to increase productivity at work. They are being taught not to take more than two children which is good for the modern world. Overall I believe all nations should back and adopt the Chinese model to help Muslim communities. So please stop this western nonsense that China is torturing us and if possible then invest in re-education camps like them. Those are far more useful than dropping bombs in our home. China is the only true friend of Muslims outside the Islamic world.

**Please note, my answer is based on personal experience and supported by all Muslim nations.

The Chinese government  broke its agreement with GB in shutting down the democracy flourishing in Hong-Kong.

Wiki history The fundamental reality is that China undeniably owns Hong Kong. It was forced by its defeat by Britain in the Opium War to lease the territory and, when it came to reclaim the lease in 1997, it was still too weak to negotiate forcefully with the Thatcher government. The result was a long interim agreement due to expire in 2047, that gave the citizens of Hong Kong (who had not had democracy under British colonial rulers) time to establish a system of governance, given every encouragement by the West, that would make assimilation into Chinese society problematical. Most importantly Hong-Kong’s quasi- independence gave the West an intelligence base from which they could strive to destabilise the mainland. Egged on by the West, the youth of Hong Kong had their hopes of independence raised to a most unrealistic level. Western intelligence agencies pushed their luck too far and the young people of Hong-Kong have suffered as a result. Throughout the protests and the destruction of government property and disruption of the economy, Chinese law enforcement was responsible for just two deaths. Compare this with 700+ Gazans, protesting the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem shot (the majority deliberately crippled, rather than killed outright) in just one day by Israeli sharp-shooters.

The Chinese government has ‘threatened’ witnesses. WHO: “our officers had access to any who wanted to give evidence without prior arrangement or limitation. Not one Chinese citizen spoke of being ‘forced’ in any way.”

The Chinese government would not allow ‘full’ access to the virology lab at the centre of the controversy. WHO: “We received full access and security clearance to ALL staff and areas of the virology lab concerned. “

The Chinese government tried to prevent access to the ‘wet’ markets in Wuhan. WHO: “We travelled wherever and whenever we wanted – always being greeted by friendly Chinese citizens willing to help and assist”.

The Chinese government stage-managed the interviews with surviving members of families who have lost loved-ones to Covid19. WHO: “We interviewed any one we wished without prior arrangement or appointment. WHO officers were ‘touched’ by the continuous kindness and concern they received from the Chinese people, who were very grateful that they had risked their lives to travel during this pandemic and try to assist China!”

Skripals terminated  Eric Zuesse on the Skripal case. The story of the Skripals was an apparent false flag by MI5. The fact that the Skripals would not cooperate made them an intolerable liability – all the huge gains in the propaganda war against Russia could be lost if they blabbed. When I read that the UK Sunday Times (a favoured MI5 voice-piece) had leaked that they had been found new identities and settled in New Zealand, I was immediately convinced they had both been eliminated, while still detained at USAAF base Fairford in Gloucestershire. 20 minute read.

Having read this Q & A one has to ask why Putin would decide the time was ripe to kill Navalny, as opposed to any other opposition figure.  Novichok is a military grade nerve agent of such lethality that NATO troops are told a single spot of an aerosol on bare skin will result in death within ten minutes. Quite amazing how both the Skripals and Navalny survived!

It gives comfort to dictatorships that use poison gasses on their own people.

Biden’support Happily, President Biden has no such qualms

Integrated with, or fellow travelling alongside the Military Industrial Complex, the key players, with a vested interest in wars and rumours of war are:-

  • Western intelligence agencies: CIA + 16 other US agencies, UK‘s SIS, Germany’s BND etc. Israel’s Mossad is the only western intelligence agency which is not totally subservient to big brothers in the USA and thus not wholeheartedly committed to the cold war confrontation with Russia and China.
  • The Five Eyes alliance – used to be just for intelligence gathering but is becoming increasingly diplomatically active.
  • Mainstream media: particularly Washington Post, New York Times, The Times of London, the Daily Telegraph and the Guardian.
  • Think Tanks and multiple academic departments in which career prospects are measured by the number of anti-Russian and anti-Chinese articles published.  A random selection would show:-
  • In the USA: Too many to itemise  Think Tanks
  •  In Britain: International Institute for Strategic Studies, Chatham House, RUSI
  • In Australia: Lowry, ASPI

Fronts: such as the Integrity Institute; Bellingcat; the White Helmets; subverted multilateral institutions such as the OPCW.

To find a balanced selection of viewpoints on Google is practically impossible – here is a brief survey.  

Search Instruction: ‘Uighurs. ‘Of the first twelve entries three could be considered middle of the road – Wikipedia, Britannica and Al-Jazeera. The remainder were all anti-Chinese government: BBC x 2, Guardian x 3, Daily Mail, NY Times, US PBS and Deutsche Welle. After the sixth page I gave up trying to find a single article presenting a Chinese government point of view.

Search Instruction: ‘Hong Kong riots.’  Of the first 13 entries, two were videos from the South China Morning Post, based in Hong-Kong but attempting to be balanced. One was from Wikipedia, and the remainder all firmly committed to an anti-China line: BBC x 2, CNN x 2, NYT x 3, Guardian x 2, ABC x 1. It would appear that for general members of the western public and non-investigative journalists, alternative thoughts are virtually unobtainable.

I have gone no further in this survey. At this stage of the Punch and Judy performance the point appears adequately made. As were their forebears, the cannon fodder of 1914, today’s blinkered populations will soon be well-groomed for war on behalf of their puppeteers.

As the intention is to modernise and assimilate the Uighur population this

since collaboration in WWII, the BBC has had the closest of relationships with
MI5 and it must be assumed its services are entirely at the Integrity
Initiative’s disposal.) 2 x 4 minute reads.

Shahamad Khan Professor at Milan, Italy (2010–present)What is happening to
Uighurs within Chinese concentration camps?

China is doing nothing wrong. I have personally visited China as one of my
projects about how to uplift Muslims and clearly these camps are uplifting them
and turning them to modern Muslims. They are given proper food and shelter.
they are being trained in life skills like shoemaking, pisciculture, food
processing, etc. They are also given the Chinese Quran which is a modified and progressive
version of the Quran, I was shown an English copy of the same and they have
removed verses that demean non-Muslims and teach them how to eliminate them. It
has also modified prayers to one time from actual five but tells to do it five
times in the evening. which helps to increase productivity at work. They are
being taught not to take more than two children which is good for the modern
world. Overall I believe all nations should back and adopt the Chinese model to
help Muslim communities. So please stop this western nonsense that China is
torturing us and if possible then invest in re-education camps like them. Those
are far more useful than dropping bombs in our home. China is the only true
friend of Muslims outside the Islamic world.

**Please note, my answer is based on personal experience and supported by
all Muslim nations.

The Chinese government  broke its agreement with GB in shutting
down the democracy flourishing in Hong-Kong.

Wiki history
The fundamental reality is that China undeniably owns Hong Kong. It was forced
by its defeat by Britain in the Opium War to lease the territory and, when it
came to reclaim the lease in 1997, it was still too weak to negotiate
forcefully with the Thatcher government. The result was a long interim
agreement due to expire in 2047, that gave the citizens of Hong Kong (who had
not had democracy under British colonial rulers) time to establish a system of
governance, given every encouragement by the West, that would make assimilation
into Chinese society problematical. Most importantly Hong-Kong’s quasi-
independence gave the West an intelligence base from which they could strive to
destabilise the mainland. Egged on by the West, the youth of Hong Kong had
their hopes of independence raised to a most unrealistic level. Western
intelligence agencies pushed their luck too far and the young people of
Hong-Kong have suffered as a result. Throughout the protests and the
destruction of government property and disruption of the economy, Chinese law
enforcement was responsible for just two deaths. Compare this with 700+ Gazans,
protesting the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem shot (the majority
deliberately crippled, rather than killed outright) in just one day by Israeli
sharp-shooters.

The Chinese started the

WHO
findings
There are other indications that Covid antibodies were found in
blood samples taken outside China before the Wuhan outbreak. 2 minute

The New York Times: “For months, China resisted allowing World Health
Organization experts into the country to trace the origins of the global
pandemic”. WHO: “We were in China from Day One.  Large WHO
teams also visited in February, 2020, and again in June”.

AFP, the Daily Telegraph, the Daily Mail, the Guardian, The Express, Al
Jazeera and The Times, said the Chinese Government acted uncooperatively during
the WHO visit. WHO: “The Chinese government has fully cooperated and
behaved impeccably.”

The Chinese government has ‘threatened’ witnesses. WHO: “our
officers had access to any who wanted to give evidence without prior
arrangement or limitation. Not one Chinese citizen spoke of being ‘forced’ in
any way.”

The Chinese government would not allow ‘full’ access to the virology lab at
the centre of the controversy. WHO: “We received full access and
security clearance to ALL staff and areas of the virology lab concerned. “

The Chinese government tried to prevent access to the ‘wet’ markets in
Wuhan. WHO: “We travelled wherever and whenever we wanted – always
being greeted by friendly Chinese citizens willing to help and assist”.

The Chinese government stage-managed the interviews with surviving members
of families who have lost loved-ones to Covid19. WHO: “We interviewed
any one we wished without prior arrangement or appointment. WHO officers were
‘touched’ by the continuous kindness and concern they received from the Chinese
people, who were very grateful that they had risked their lives to travel
during this pandemic and try to assist China!”

was an apparent false flag by MI5. The fact that the Skripals would not

propaganda war against Russia could be lost if they blabbed. When I read that
the UK Sunday Times (a favoured MI5 voice-piece) had leaked that they had been
found new identities and settled in New Zealand, I was immediately convinced
they had both been eliminated, while still detained at USAAF base Fairford in
Gloucestershire. 20 minute read.

Having read this Q & A one has to ask why Putin would decide the time
was ripe to kill Navalny, as opposed to any other opposition figure.
 Novichok is a military grade nerve agent of such lethality that NATO

within ten minutes. Quite amazing how both the Skripals and Navalny survived!

dictatorships that use poison gasses on their own people.

Integrated
with, or fellow travelling alongside the Military Industrial Complex, the key
players, with a vested interest in wars and rumours of war are:-

  • Western intelligence
    agencies: CIA + 16 other US agencies, UK‘s SIS, Germany’s BND etc.
    Israel’s Mossad is the only western intelligence agency which is not
    totally subservient to big brothers in the USA and thus not wholeheartedly
    committed to the cold war confrontation with Russia and China.
  • The Five Eyes alliance –
    used to be just for intelligence gathering but is becoming increasingly
    diplomatically active.
  • Mainstream media:
    particularly Washington Post, New York Times, The Times of London, the
    Daily Telegraph and the Guardian.
  • Think Tanks and multiple
    academic departments in which career prospects are measured by the number
    of anti-Russian and anti-Chinese articles published.  A random
    selection would show:-
  • In the USA: Too many to
    itemise  Think
    Tanks
  •  In Britain:
    International Institute for Strategic Studies, Chatham House, RUSI
  • In Australia: Lowry, ASPI

Fronts:
such as the Integrity Institute; Bellingcat; the White Helmets; subverted
multilateral institutions such as the OPCW.

To find a
balanced selection of viewpoints on Google is practically impossible – here is
a brief survey.  

Search
Instruction: ‘Uighurs. ‘Of the first twelve entries three could be considered
middle of the road – Wikipedia, Britannica and Al-Jazeera. The remainder were
all anti-Chinese government: BBC x 2, Guardian x 3, Daily Mail, NY Times, US
PBS and Deutsche Welle. After the sixth page I gave up trying to find a single
article presenting a Chinese government point of view.

Search
Instruction: ‘Hong Kong riots.’  Of the first 13 entries, two were videos
from the South China Morning Post, based in Hong-Kong but attempting to be
balanced. One was from Wikipedia, and the remainder all firmly committed to an
anti-China line: BBC x 2, CNN x 2, NYT x 3, Guardian x 2, ABC x 1. It would
appear that for general members of the western public and non-investigative
journalists, alternative thoughts are virtually unobtainable.

I have
gone no further in this survey. At this stage of the Punch and Judy performance
the point appears adequately made. As were their forebears, the cannon fodder
of 1914, today’s blinkered populations will soon be well-groomed for war on
behalf of their puppeteers.
