  • China has a knife violence problem

  • And the Chinese Communist Party doesn't like to talk about it

  • Welcome to China Uncensored.

  • I'm Chris Chappell.

  • As we've all been told, everything is harmonious in China.

  • But that might not quite be the case.

  • And the content we're going to talk about in this video may be disturbing.

  • Which means, I can bet you YouTube will demonetize, and maybe age restrict this video.

  • That means YouTube is going to prevent people from seeing this, even though this is a really

  • important story and we're choosing not to show any gratuitous violence.

  • You can help us fight back against the censorship by sharing this video, and if you can, contributing

  • a dollar or more on the crowd funding website Patreon.That lets us stand up to YouTube's

  • demonetization, and we'll give you some cool perks as a way of saying thank you.

  • So, here we are in Guangxi province in southern China

  • where in April, Xi Jinping did an inspection tour.

  • Yep, the mountains look good.

  • Yep, your tiny kitchen looks good.

  • Yep, the giant red star looks imposing.

  • But the day after Xi Jinping's visit, there was a brutal knife stabbing in the same region

  • that killed 2 people and injured 16.

  • Including children.

  • The suspect's wife worked as a teacher in the kindergarten.

  • The two couples divorced because of a quarrel.

  • The man then climbed the fence and broke into the kindergarten and knifed people.

  • 'Even his own son was hacked to death.'”

  • Now there's no evidence suggesting that this knifing was related to Xi Jinping's

  • inspection tour the day before.

  • But for the Chinese Communist Party, the timing was very inconvenient.

  • Social media platforms like Weibo quickly blocked users from discussing the incident.

  • But perhaps this knifing was just an isolated event.

  • At least that's how state-run media report on it every time it happens: as if it's

  • a very rare event with absolutely no larger context.

  • But unfortunately, knife attacks happen a lot in China.

  • Back in 2010, the Chinese government publicly promised to prevent these incidentseven

  • though they, um, almost never happen.

  • They've given the death penalty to a number of the perpetrators, and they've also tightened

  • public surveillance measures.

  • But that clearly hasn't solved the problem.

  • In 2018 in Chongqing, a 39-year-old woman assaulted a group of kindergarteners with

  • a kitchen knife.

  • In 2020, in Guanxi, a 50-year-old security guard attacked 39 students and teachers at

  • a kindergarten.

  • According to Ding Xueliang, a sociology professor in Hong Kong: 'The Chinese society has generated

  • enormous pressure on individuals and some of those individuals have perhaps had emotional

  • and psychological problems.

  • They want to cause general attention from the population and attacking kids perhaps

  • is the best way from their perspective of achieving this objective.'

  • Chinese society appears harmonious if you look at state run media reports.

  • But there's a huge amount of pent up anger.

  • And people aren't even allowed to talk about it!

  • There's no outlet.A video that circulated online this May shows a man in Nanjing running

  • over his ex-wife with a car in public.

  • The man later ran out of his car swinging a knife, and injured 7 nearby pedestrians.

  • In May this year, a woman brought a fruit knife into the Shanghai Business Center and

  • attacked 5 people.

  • Earlier in June, a man in Anhui in Eastern China attacked people in the street with a

  • knife.

  • These acts of violence seem to be getting worse.

  • And they're not just knife attacks.

  • In May, a man drove a car through a red light on purposeplowing right through dozens

  • of pedestrians in a crosswalk.

  • The suspect, a hairdresser surnamed Liu, had decided to take revenge against society

  • after losing money in a failed investment scheme.”

  • The police said Liu had not been drinking or on drugs... nor did he have a history of

  • mental illness: He was clear-minded when he committed his crime.”

  • Theserevenge against societyattacks are some of the darkest social issues facing

  • China.

  • So much for everything being harmonious.

  • If you haven't heard about it, it may be that Chinese state-run media are too busy

  • to cover it.

  • Instead they spend their energy on more productive things, like criticizing America's gun violence.

  • You see, according to state-run media, China can offer lessons to the US in protecting

  • human rights.

  • The US should learn from China and genuinely protect human rights.

  • If the US does not control its guns, problems caused by firearms in the foreseeable future

  • will continue plaguing US society.”

  • Now, they're rightthe US does have a problem with mass shootings.

  • But in China, no one is allowed to have guns.

  • And there are still essentially the same problems.

  • But with knives.

  • And cars.

  • And yet, according to Chinese state media, rampant gun violence makes the U.S. a proven

  • hypocrite on human rights.

  • Gun ownership and deaths are out of control in the US.

  • And how can the US police the world when it can't even protect its own people?

  • Surely if the US adopts China's model of authoritarian harmony, that will solve everything.

  • As long as you censor what gets reported.

  • And now to do what Chinese state-run media would never do: Answer a question from a supporter!

  • Oh, especially a Freedom Fighter: “I think the best way to handle the CCP is to boycott

  • all Chinese goods.

  • Can you think of any other way to hurt the CCP?”

  • You make a good point, Freedom Fighter.

  • The way to hurt the CCP is to go after the money.

  • But it should be about more than just boycotting goods.

  • That's a great way you, as an individual, can help.

  • But what can have a larger impact is if Western governments—I'm looking at you, America

  • stop their companies from investing in China.

  • The CCP is running out of cash.

  • Especially American dollars.

  • It needs dollars to sustain its own currency.

  • So one thing China's doing is opening domestic bond markets.

  • They're trying to get foreigners to invest their American dollars into China, with the

  • promise of big returns.

  • They want you to think: Wow, they're giving me an opportunity to make money!

  • They're not giving you an opportunity to make money.

  • They're giving themselves an opportunity to make money.

  • But American investment companies are pitching it.

  • And American investors are snapping it up.

  • You're giving the CCP the money it needs to sustain its authoritarian regime!

  • And also, it's a trap!!!

  • You're not going to get your money back, stupid.

  • Don't do it!

  • The US government has already restricted investments in certain Chinese companies with military

  • ties.

  • But Wall Street needs to know that investing in China is bad for their bottom line.

  • If the world stopped pumping money into China, that would hurt the CCP.

  • Badly.

  • In fact, it would eventually bring down the CCP.

  • But it's a long road ahead.

  • Thanks for your question, Freedom Fighter.

  • us through the crowdfunding website Patreon.
