Say what you want of Chicago's own Communist agitator, David Saul Alinski, yes the same who offered a young Hillary Clinton a job, but he truly was a master of subversive tactics. Leftists in our country, have followed his revolutionary guidance for decades now, accounting for a wide range of successes in polluting and corrupting the minds of millions of idealistic youngsters emerging from our schools of indoctrination, too many of which, seek political office or enter the three biggest cultural megaphones of our country: the Media, Entertainment, and Academia.
Alinsky's book, "Rules for Radicals," gives us a window into Communists tactics. Rules #5 and #12, in particular, allows us to understand the tactic of redirection: "Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon" and "Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” These two tactics are actually being applied to the United States by China today, to redirect attention from their colossal human rights abuses. Take Zhao Lijian comments for example.
On the official Chinese government Twitter account, Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson for China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, criticized U.S. officials for failing to address “gun violence,” calling the problem a “human rights issue.” The tweet links to a page from the UN's "Gun Violence Archive," that displays “gun deaths” in the United States, as the worst in the world.
The CCP has for years tried to equivocate their own human rights violations with the supposed social ills of the United States. The American Left’s ongoing, relentless campaign to paint the U.S. as racist and violent, continues to give them plenty of material to exploit.
The CCP likes to describe gun violence, as a malignancy in the U.S., interwoven and overlapping with other serious social issues which include, but not limited to, pornography, rampant drug abuse, inner city poverty and violence, unchecked police brutality, mass shootings, and of course, the lack of "equity" caused by "inequality" resulting from centuries of institutionalized racism emerging from Anglo-Saxon white supremacy upon which, the U.S. was founded. "It has become a severe systemic human right issue,” Zhao said.
He continued: "Do they have any right, any moral authority, to criticize social issues in other countries? Certainly not. I hope these shocking numbers will have a sobering effect on these people, so they can reflect upon themselves and take some concrete actions to improve their human rights conditions."
The Communists Chinese, who are themselves engaged in what most international observers describe as a “genocide” akin to the Holocaust, have placed about 3 million Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities in concentration camps in the Xinjiang region of China. Horror stories are emerging from China about human organ factories, where organs are removed from victims still alive, and sold around the world to those with an abundance of wealth and a shortage of morals.
The ChiComs, as we all know, besides being responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic—they kept quiet while it came to us—and the world's worse polluters, also ban all firearms in China. However, much like the Blue states of California and New York, the Chinese government, aka the Chinese Communist Party, grants gun permits to those in a very special category, members of the Chinese Communist Party. As you well see, "Hypocrisy" is not exclusively a phenomenon of the American left.
