  • On this episode of China Uncensored,

  • who says spies need to be undercover?

  • Hi, welcome to China Uncensored,

  • I'm your host Chris Chappell.

  • Can I just say what an awesome job

  • the Chinese Communist Party is doing in Xinjiang?

  • I mean, it's basically like Cheers.

  • Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name.”

  • Only they don't just know your name.

  • They know your face, too!

  • I mean, between the convenience police stations on every corner

  • and the vocational training camps

  • that promote stability and employment

  • through the use of police batons,

  • electric cattle prods, handcuffs, and pepper spray,

  • I'm sure the ethnic Uighurs of Xinjiang feel very safe

  • and well cared for by the Chinese Communist Party.

  • Of course, it's possible that some don't.

  • But not to worrythe Communist Party

  • has a solution for them, too.

  • Because even though there's all this fancy,

  • newfangled surveillance, facial recognition,

  • DNA-scanning, yada yada, technology,

  • the Communist Party hasn't forgotten the importance

  • of good old-fashioned people-to-people connections.

  • And by connections, I mean spying.

  • That's why the Party has ordered a million Han Chinese

  • to move into the villages and homes of Uighurs across Xinjiang.

  • Now I know what you're thinking.

  • That's a terrible idea.

  • Won't that lead to overcrowding?

  • Don't worry, the Party is smarter than you.

  • It just so happens that,

  • with all those Uighurs in voluntary vocational training camps,

  • there are a lot of empty beds and broken homes to fill.

  • The Communist Party's program is called United as One Family.

  • And keeping with the family theme, the Uighurs

  • are required to call their guestsrelatives”;

  • brothers and sisters.

  • Big brothers and sisters.

  • And the Xinjiang Communist Youth League

  • has posted a bunch of photos showing

  • how much all the Uighurs love this plan.

  • Whether it's sharing a bed with your two Han Chinese sisters...

  • Reading together Xi Jinping's report for

  • the 19th National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party...

  • or making sure the kids are learning Mandarin Chinese

  • instead of their native language.

  • There are actually many photos of people sharing beds together,

  • which I guess is an important part of being united as one family?

  • And hey, here's a bit of friendly advice for

  • all you Uighurs watching from Xinjiang.

  • The government reportedly tried to promote drinking and smoking,

  • because people who didn't drink or smoke

  • such as devout Muslims

  • were deemed suspicious.”

  • So when your big brother offers to share a drink with you, take it.

  • I'm kidding of course.

  • There's no way Uighurs in Xinjiang are watching this.

  • They're too busy studying Marxism and Xi Jinping thought.

  • But before you start hating on the Han Chinese

  • who are in Xinjiang occupying people's homes

  • you should know that many of them love

  • the Communist Party's program

  • just as much as the Uighurs do.

  • I mean, they volunteered for it...

  • you know, like how Uighurs are

  • volunteering to be in those concentration camps.

  • Concentration camps in the sense that

  • they have to really concentrate hard,

  • since they're learning all those new job skills.

  • But who are the Han Chinese being dispatched

  • to stay in Uighur homes for days or weeks at a time?

  • At first, they were mostly Communist Party members.

  • But now, since the Party has run low on those,

  • the latest wave of 1 millionrelatives

  • have been low to mid-level civil servants.

  • Imagine being a doctor in a state-run hospital

  • and then being told part of your job

  • is now spying on people every month.

  • In the far away deserts of Xinjiang.

  • Of course, some of the Han Chinese truly believe

  • the Party propaganda that they're doing a good thing,

  • and creating ethnic harmony with their homestays.

  • Like it's Habitat for Humanity,

  • except with more spying.

  • For others, well, according to anthropologist Darren Byler,

  • who wrote this ChinaFile article,

  • Two of those [Han Chinese] I interviewed told me that they,

  • or their friends who had been asked to go down to the villages,

  • would have lost their jobs if they had

  • refused to participate in the monitoring program,

  • but they also said that by participating they had been

  • guaranteed promotions upon the completion of their tour of duty.”

  • And any Chinese people

  • who express sympathetic views towards the Uighurs

  • might be in trouble.

  • Like Zhang Haitao, an ethnic Han Chinese,

  • spent years criticizing the policies in Xinjiang on social media.

  • But at the end of last year,

  • He was arrested and prosecuted for subversion and espionage.

  • His punishment—20 years in prison.”

  • Meanwhile, Uighurs who have these people

  • staying in their homes feel afraid,

  • stripped of their dignity,

  • and like every aspect of their life is a political test.

  • So clearly,

  • both Han Chinese and Uighurs love the United as One Family program.

  • But perhaps some big brothers and sisters may wonder:

  • What am I supposed to be doing here?

  • Fortunately, the Communist Party has created a helpful manual for you.

  • Aww look!

  • The two hands holding each other make a heart.

  • This can't be sinister!

  • After all, how sinister can it be if it's from Shutterstock?

  • Back to the daily routine for the Han Chinesevolunteers.”

  • In the mornings,

  • you can take your Uighur hosts to sing patriotic songs

  • at the daily flag-raising ceremonies

  • outside the village Party office.

  • At night, take them to classes on Xi Jinping thought.

  • The rest of the day is your typical mix of watching

  • state-approved television shows,

  • singing more patriotic songs,

  • and of course, asking questions!

  • For example, you can ask them:

  • Do you have any relatives living abroad?

  • Have you ever attended a mosque outside the village?

  • How's your Arabic?

  • And if any of their answers,

  • felt incomplete, or if they seemed to be hiding anything,

  • the children should be questioned next.”

  • See?

  • The Communist Party is even thinking of the children!

  • The Chinese regime has declared Islam a contagious disease.

  • So while these Uighurs might act friendly and secular,

  • they might secretly be trying to hold onto

  • their religion and culture.

  • Here's how the Party says you can find out.

  • Offer a member of your host family a cigarette or a sip of beer.

  • Provide random bags of ground meat for dinner.

  • Find ways to make physical contact with a member of the opposite sex.

  • If any of that makes them uncomfortable,

  • you shouldreport any resistanceto the relevant authorities.

  • That way, your hosts can be sent off to one of

  • the many vocational training camps to receive training

  • on how they should ditch their religion

  • for Marxism and Xi Jinping Thought!

  • Oh, and here's another tip for dealing with resistance:

  • Try to convince your new family

  • that you already know everything about them.

  • The manual instructs the relatives

  • to tell their 'little brothers and sisters'

  • that they have been monitoring all Internet

  • and cell phone communication

  • that is coming from the family,

  • so they should not even think about lying

  • when it comes to their knowledge of Islam

  • and religious extremism.”

  • Look, this policy is incredibly disturbing.

  • The Chinese Communist Party is creating a system where,

  • in the name of ethnic harmony,

  • they are pitting Han Chinese and Uighurs against each other.

  • Of course, ethnic harmony is a good thing.

  • But the way to get there is probably not

  • to force one group of people to help destroy the families

  • and communities of another group of people.

  • China Digital Times translated this article

  • from a Han Chinese university student in Xinjiang.

  • He talks about living under the growing security state,

  • watching his Uighur teachers slowly disappear into the camps,

  • and about how no one could talk about it

  • for fear that they would also be reported to the Party.

  • That student realized that he was being trained

  • to be part of the security apparatus

  • and managed to leave the country.

  • But most people in Xinjiang aren't so lucky--

  • especially the Uighurs.

  • Like this ChinaFile article says,

  • Citizens of totalitarian states

  • are nearly always compelled to act in ways

  • that deny their ethical obligations.”

  • No one is allowed to think about what they're doing.

  • I know, this all sounds like so much fun for everyone.

  • So between all the hair combing

  • making probably non-halal dumplings!

  • and putting up Pictures of Xi Jinping

  • ….the Han big brothers and sisters and their Uighur hosts

  • have important work to do for their country.

  • So what do you think of the Communist Party's

  • plan to force Han Chinese to live with Uighurs?

  • Leave your comments below.

  • And now is the moment you've all been waiting for!

  • When I answer questions

  • from a member of the China Uncensored 50 cent army

  • the fans who make this show possible

  • by contributing through the crowd funding website Patreon.

  • Karan Joshi asks,

  • Could the People's Republic of China

  • ever split up like the Soviet Union?

  • A very interesting, politically sensitive question!

  • As this lovely gif shows,

  • the territory of what we call China

  • has changed a lot over the centuries.

  • If or when the Communist Party falls,

  • the reaction could be different in different places.

  • And there are some big question marks over certain regions.

  • Xinjiang is known by Uighurs as East Turkestan.

  • Some people there might want to break off into their own country.

  • Same goes for Tibet.

  • Although doing that would not be as easy as it sounds.

  • Other places are harder to say.

  • Would Taiwan want to rejoin a Communist free China?

  • Would Taiwan lead a Communist free China?

  • Or would Taiwan get to finally call itself a country?

  • What about Hong Kong and Macau?

  • So it could be similar to the fall of the Soviet Union,

  • where some of the outlying parts do break off

  • to become independent countries.

  • Or the non-People's Republic might survive largely intact.

  • But either way,

  • there'll still be a very large country

  • that calls itself China.

  • Thanks for your question.

  • And if you'd me to answer your question,

  • join up in the China Uncensored 50-army.

  • We have a very low mortality rate.

  • And for only a dollar or more per episode,

  • we'll give you some cool perks

  • and you'll have the chance to send me questions

  • that I could answer right here on the show.

  • So head over to Pateron.com/chinauncensored to learn more.

  • Thanks for watching this episode of China Uncensored.

  • Once again I'm your host Chris Chappell,

  • see you next time.
