  • Uyghur ex-officials

  • Are given the death sentence Over a Uyghur textbook

  • Welcome to China Uncensored, I'm Chris Chappell.

  • It's no longer a secret that China is givingspecial treatmentto ethnic minorities

  • like the Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang.

  • In the last few months, countries around the world have started calling that special treatment

  • genocide.

  • And last month, the US and its allies sanctioned Chinese officials for genocide.

  • Genocideincludes separating Uyghur families and throwing them into concentration

  • camps.

  • Or forcing birth control on Uyghur women to suppress the population.

  • And let's not forget killing Uyghurs and harvesting their organs.

  • And then there's the cultural genocide.

  • Like silencing the Uyghur language.

  • For example, in the internment camps, Uyghurs are forced to speak Mandarin and not their

  • native language.

  • You see this?

  • Why this is just a language class.

  • Today's lesson: How to sayThank you Chinese Communist Party, for giving me all

  • of this free re-education.”

  • But it's not enough for Uyghurs, including Uyghur children, to learn Mandarin.

  • They also need to learn Chinese Communist Party propaganda, with a hearty dose of historical

  • revisionism.

  • What happens if they're not learning to love the motherland?

  • The death sentence.

  • The Chinese regime has recently handed death sentences to Uyghur former officials forwriting

  • and publishing school textbooks designed to 'split the country'”.

  • Two former education officials were given suspended death sentences, while five more

  • Uyghurs, including book editors, were given long prison sentences, some up to life in

  • prison.

  • Now in China, a suspended death sentence means it could be changed to life in prison instead.

  • Which is the...good news?

  • So what were these men's crimes?

  • They were accused of adding separatist ideas to Uyghur language textbooks for elementary

  • and secondary school kids, starting in 2002.

  • Those textbooks were then used in Xinjiang for more than a decadebefore authorities

  • changed their minds in 2016, and decided they were in fact separatist books that harm young

  • people.

  • “25 million copies of the textbook were printed and distributed in Xinjiang.

  • And tens of thousands of Uyghur educators have used it for 13 years, causing extremely

  • serious harm.”

  • The son of one of the imprisoned book editors pushed back on the Chinese regime's claims.

  • He points out that these textbooks were approved by the state for 13 years.

  • And he saysChina is trying to erase history and write a new narrative.”

  • Whaaaaat?

  • Erasing history and writing a new narrative?

  • Does that sound like something the Chinese Communist Party would do?

  • But the Party is going even further to rewrite the history of Xinjiang.

  • I'll show you how after the break.

  • Welcome back.

  • Former Uyghur education officials have been thrown in prison for an old textbook featuring

  • no-longer-approved history.

  • And now Chinese state run CGTN has released a documentary film about them—a full hour

  • of villainizing thesetwo-facedUyghurs.

  • Murat Sheripjan says even the termtwo-faceddoesn't properly describe such persons.

  • They are the enemy, the enemy in the shadows

  • The documentary of course includes televised forced confessions from theseenemies in

  • the shadows.”

  • The idea was to use the power given by the Party and the people to spread our ethnic

  • chauvinist sentiments and extremist errors among more Uyghur people.

  • It was meant to control their minds, influence them in childhood in order to turn them into

  • separatists.By framing these Uyghur officials as hardened criminals, Chinese state-run media

  • is attempting to justify the Party's genocide of the Uyghur people.

  • They had to do it to fight terrorism, guys.

  • Terrorism like, showing a medal worn by a historical figure.

  • Take this graphic for example.

  • The national emblem is that of East Turkistan.

  • It shouldn't appear in textbooks at all.

  • The East Turkestan Republic was a short-lived state that occupied the upper west region

  • of Xinjiang briefly from 1944-1949.

  • The man pictured in the textbook was one of the presidents of the East Turkestan Republic.

  • But no one is supposed to know that.

  • We shouldn't be teaching this history at all!

  • Especially since, according to Chinese state-run media, there has never even been an East Turkestan

  • state.

  • Really, it's much safer for society if children lose all connection with their cultural roots.

  • This is the legend of seven heroic Uyghur girls.

  • It's all fabricated.

  • Han Chinese soldiers trapped them at a cliff and they jumped to their death to defend their

  • homeland.

  • It's meant to incite ethnic hatred and it will misinform the students.

  • Look, everyone knows that the only true Chinese history is the one where the Han Chinese are

  • the heroes.

  • The documentary claims that these Uyghur textbooks are directly responsible for what the documentary

  • refers to as the July 5th Incident.

  • But the outside world calls the July 5th Incident theUrumqi Massacre”—because Chinese

  • soldiers massacred people!

  • It happened after ethnic riots broke out in Xinjiang's capital, Urumqi, in 2009.

  • According to witness reports, an estimated 1000 or more people, most of them ethnic Uyghurs,

  • were shot dead during that one and a half hour period of time.”

  • And after massacring a bunch of Uyghurs, the Chinese Communist Party imprisoned thousands

  • more.

  • And they locked down the entire Xinjiang region for monthsincluding cutting off the internet

  • entirely.

  • But maybe the Chinese Communist Party is onto something here.

  • Children's books are definitely the main source of terrorism and separatism.

  • And the only solution is to lock up an entire ethnic group.

  • At least until the Chinese regime writes new children's books.

  • LikeHorton Hears a Separatist and Reports Him to the Neighborhood Committee.”

  • Where the Wild Splittists Are.”

  • James and the Giant Hegemon.”

  • Or my personal favorite, “Oh the Re-educational Places You'll Go!”

  • See, with these two-faced officials safely behind bars, the Chinese Communist Party can

  • finally lead the Uyghurs to a brighter future, with patriotic children's textbooks.

  • This is Part One of the first grade's Uyghur-language textbook.

  • Here's the national emblem, and the national flag, and the statementWe are Chinese”.

  • Here is the flag-raising ceremony.”

  • What are we telling the students with these pictures?

  • They should know that they are citizens of the People's Republic of China, that Xinjiang

  • is an inalienable part of the motherland.”

  • What a happy ending.

  • Everything is rectified.

  • And the Uyghur children can learn to dance like the happy ethnic minority they're supposed

  • to be.

  • Which means it's a perfect time to watch China's new hit musical inspired by the

  • Hollywood movie La La Land.

  • It's calledThe Wings of Songs”, and showcases the beautiful rich life of ethnic

  • minority groups in Xinjiang.

  • Including all of their happy ethnic dancing.

  • I mean, it totally works.

  • It's just like the Sound of Music, but in the end Captain Von Trapp joins the Nazis.

  • And now it's time for me to answer a question from a member of the China Uncensored 50 Cent

  • Armyfans who support the show on the crowd funding website Patreon.

  • Ringleader asks, “Hey Chris, how would "Xi the Poo" react if the U.S. and/or the U.K.

  • established a full embassy and/or military base in the free and independent country of

  • Taiwan?”

  • Well I know how they would feel.

  • The feelings of the Chinese people would be deeply hurt.

  • What would the Communist Party do about it?

  • Right now, there's not a whole lot they can do.

  • They would make a big stink about it.

  • The Foreign Affairs ministry would make all kinds of statements, there'd be angry tweets.

  • And you know what, there might even be some sanctions.

  • Some US officials might not be allowed to travel to China anymore.

  • I also imagine there would be a continuation of military maneuvers around Taiwan, that

  • would quietly shrink over time.

  • Because even though Xi Jinping might say the US and China are equal now...

  • ...the truth is a little different.

  • However, if the US shows weakness, and the Chinese regime is able to take over Taiwan,

  • the power would shift.

  • If the Chinese regime manages to even partially replace the US dollar with its own currency,

  • the power will also shift.

  • We just did a full episode about that.

  • The Communist Party's goal is to replace the US as the world's biggest superpower.

  • There's still time to stop that from happening.

  • But not a lot of time.

  • Thanks for your question Ringleader.
