Re: When Your Enemy's Enemy is Not a Friend - New Politics

Roger, please remember there were well meaning friends of socialism in the 1930s who argued up down and sideways that the attacks on Stalin were nothing but capitalist propaganda --- Then, when the transcripts of the Moscow Trials were published and all these Old Bolsheviks confessed to being spies for the capitalists, books were published like THE GREAT CONSPIRACY AGAINST RUSSIA which echoed these complaints without batting an eyelash --- and American Communists and fellow travellers and their families (I was a kid reading this stuff in my parents' home) swallowed all of it hook line and sinker ....

That doesn't make any of the "defenses" of Stalin and Stalinism true --- it just reminds us that there are well meaning journalists and political allies who convince themselves of what turns out to be errant nonsense ...

Now -- I don't read or speak Mandarin or Uyghur and I haven't "been there" but I still believe the information about how the Chinese government is treating the Uyghur minority .... and I CERTAINLY believe that the crackdown on Hong Kong is an abomination ...

I know many of you have criticized Max Blumenthal, and the Grayzone, but Max does a very good job here exposing just who is behing the stories of Uyghur genocide in China. Including who funding the Chinese exiles providing these stories to US media and government.
