  • Chinese Media Threatens Missile Strikes on Australia

  • China targets climate activist Grerta Thunberg

  • And the US describes China using the G-word.

  • That and more on this week's China news headlines

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

  • This episode is sponsored by Daily Pnut.

  • The news can be a tough pill to swallow.

  • That's why Daily Pnut gives you a daily dose of news in equal parts humor and substance.

  • Speaking of entertaining and substantial news...

  • Tensions between China and Australia are at an all time high.

  • The Chinese Communist Party launched a trade war with Australia a year ago, after Prime

  • Minister Scott Morrison called for an investigation into the origin of the coronavirus.

  • Why would the world need an investigation anyway?

  • Everyone knows the coronavirus didn't come from China.

  • It's clear that the virus came from the US army...

  • Making frozen food

  • Out of auto parts packaging.

  • See?

  • Case closed.

  • But a year after Australia's call for an investigation, the Chinese Communist Party

  • has still refused.

  • And they're still mad about it.

  • This week, my favorite Chinese state-run newspaper, the Global Times said China should be ready

  • to launch a devastating missile strike on Australia.

  • In this op-ed,

  • Global Times Chief Editor Hu Xijin writes, China should be ready to makelong-range

  • strikes on the military facilities and relevant key facilities on Australian soil.”

  • That could happen, should Australia do anything foolish like send troops to defend Taiwan

  • from a Chinese invasion.

  • Last month, a top Australian security official warned of China beating the drums of war.

  • He didn't specifically say China, but it was clear enough.

  • Which is ridiculous.

  • As the Global Times says, “China loves peace.”

  • Especially the pieces of Australia left after a Chinese missile strike!

  • China also just suspended its economic dialogue with Australia.

  • But keep in mind, you can't think of Hu Xijinas some rogue newspaper editor.

  • Among Chinese state-run media, the Global Times is the most hawkish, over-the-top mouthpiece

  • of the Chinese Communist Party.

  • But it's still a mouthpiece.

  • This is part of the Party's year-long attempt to terrorize Australia into submission.

  • Make it seem like a fight would be so bloody, there's no point in even having the fight.

  • The truth is, when you stand up to a bully, they tend to back down pretty quick.

  • But the Global Times is on a roll this week.

  • They're also targeting Greta Thunberg.

  • You see, according to this new report from the Rhodium Group, China produces more greenhouse

  • gases than the rest of the developed world combined.

  • And climate activist Greta Thunberg finally had some harsh words for China.

  • She said China isruining future and present living conditions.”

  • Enter the Global Times to say Thunberg isn't knowledgeable enough to understand climate

  • change.

  • She's also a puppet of Western politicians.

  • It also describes her asthe Swedish teenager who skipped school for so-called climate protests”.

  • This is not the first time Thunberg has run afoul of the Global Times.

  • Last year it was for her support of Hong Kong protesters.

  • The Global Times said she wasignorant

  • Despicable

  • andnothing but a clown.”

  • I wonder why powerful men are so scared of Grerta Thunberg?

  • Wait, I get it.

  • I'm scared of her, too.

  • And after the break, Chinese state-run media makes up lies all the timebut this one's

  • hilarious.

  • Welcome back.

  • It's not just the Global Times that had a week of winning it.

  • State-run China Daily posted this video to Twitter to promote China tourism.

  • Wow, beautiful.

  • Except the video is not from China.

  • It's from the Swiss Alps.

  • And you might think, ok so they misidentified the country.

  • People make mistakes.

  • But it gets worse.

  • The Chinese communist propaganda version of the video was slightly edited, including

  • flipping the image horizontally, making colour corrections, and seemingly doctoring a stick

  • into the dog's mouth.”

  • Wow, they did a good job with the stick.

  • ( Not a good job with the propaganda.

  • And state-run Xinhua has registered as a foreign agent in the US.

  • It only took less than three years for them to get around to it.

  • They had been ordered to back in 2018.

  • Xinhua joins two other Chinese state-run mediaCGTN and China Dailyas being registered foreign

  • agents.

  • That means they're required to disclose their annual budget and expenditures to the

  • US government.

  • Let's hope that Xinhua's budget disclosures are more accurate than China's other statistics.

  • The National Bureau of Statistics finally released their 10-year census data.

  • Earlier Western media reports said that China's population fell for the first time in 50 years.

  • But now, after weeks of delay, the official statistics show that China's population

  • actually rose.

  • Imagine that.

  • Some China analysts have noticed something...funny...about China's latest statistics.

  • A sudden unusual bump in the population growth rate in 2020.

  • All of this is to push back against the idea that China is facing a demographic crisis,

  • which it is.

  • I talked about that crisis in an episode last week.

  • More developments in the South China Sea.

  • The Philippines has flagged nearly 300 incursions by Chinese militia boats.

  • The government of the Philippines says it has logged what it calls "illegal incursions"

  • into its waters by 287 boats with Chinese militia aboard.

  • The country's task force on the South China sea said in a statement that the incident

  • may prompt possible diplomatic actions.

  • Yes, diplomatic action like...being reluctant to confront China.

  • Meanwhile, Taiwan is denouncing China's shameless lies.

  • Specifically about refusing Taiwan access to the World Health Organization.

  • China prevents Taiwan from having access to the WHO, because, as China's foreign ministry

  • said, “Nobody cared more for Taiwan's people than the Chinese government.”

  • Taiwan's Foreing Minister Joseph Wu responded by sayingAfter what Beijing has done to

  • Xinjiang, Tibet & Hong Kong, no sane person would believe it could take care of Taiwan's

  • health needs or otherwise.

  • Thank God we aren't under China's control!

  • Please help us keep it at a distance.”

  • Now that's one form of social distancing I can get behind!

  • That and social distancing because of my crippling anxiety around people in general.

  • And US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has decided to make the Chinese Communist Party

  • very unhappy this week.

  • He said, “There is no reasonable justification for Taiwan's continued exclusion from [The

  • World Health Organization].”

  • And he demanded the WHO allow Taiwan to attend an upcoming WHO meeting, the World Health

  • Assembly.

  • You know, being that Taiwan is part of the world.

  • But Blinken didn't stop there.

  • He also announced the State Department is sanctioning a Chinese official involved in

  • the persecution of the Falun Gong spiritual group.

  • China broadly criminalizes religious expression and continues to commit crimes against humanity

  • and genocide against Muslim Uyghurs and members of other religious and ethnic minority groups.

  • Today, I'm announcing the designation of Yu Hui, former office director of the so-called

  • Central Leading Group Preventing and Dealing with Heretical Religions, of Chengdu, for

  • his involvement in gross violations of human rights, namely, the arbitrary detention of

  • Falun Gong practitioners.

  • Blinken made the announcement as part of the release of the State Department's 2020 International

  • Religious Freedom Report.

  • And Blinken also specifically used the wordgenocideto talk about the persecution

  • of Uyghurs in Xinjiang.

  • It shouldn't actually be a big deal to use the word genocide to describe China's genocidewhich

  • meets every definition of genocide under the UN Convention on Genocide.

  • But sadly, the US is still one of the few countries to officially use the G-word.

  • So props to Blinken for having the B-word.

  • And after the break, Hong Kong is going after journalists.

  • With a bat!

  • Welcome back.

  • Nearly a year ago, Beijing passed the Hong Kong National Security Law.

  • It aims to take away as much freedom of speech and press as possible, while still pretending

  • that Hong Kong has its own autonomous government.

  • But when laws aren't enough to stop the free press, sometimes a more direct approach

  • is needed.

  • This is The Epoch Times.

  • It's one of the last independent Chinese-language media in Hong Kong.

  • Last week, a Hong Kong reporter for the The Epoch Times was attacked by a man with a bat.

  • The assailant hit her with the bat more than 10 times before fleeing in a car.”

  • Takes a big man to beat a defenseless woman with a bat.

  • The Epoch Times is a newspaper critical of the Chinese Communist Party.

  • Last month, its Hong Kong printing press was attacked by men with sledge hammers.

  • And the US State Department, along with other US lawmakers, have condemned the assault.

  • Meanwhile, Hong Kong chief Executive Carrie Lam is pushing for laws to stop so-called

  • fake news.”

  • Those will likely be aimed at stopping pro-democracy media like the Epoch Times and Apple Daily

  • from criticizing the Chinese Communist Party.

  • On Monday, we'll have a longer episode about Hong Kong's crackdown on the media.

  • And also we'll have the Epoch Times reporter who was attacked join us on our weekly podcast,

  • China Unscripted.

  • Yes, we also do a podcast every week.

  • In more Hong Kong news, Hong Kong legislators have officially passed a patriotic oath law.

  • Certain high level lawmakers and public servants have to swear an oath of loyalty to Chinaand

  • now the law adds district councillors to that list.

  • But that's not all.

  • The law also includes ways that people could be disqualified for breaching their oath.

  • Including by refusing to recognise China's sovereignty over Hong Kong, supporting independence,

  • seeking foreign interference, 'insulting' a flag, as well as 'endangering national

  • security.'”

  • Insulting a flag, huh?

  • Hey flag.

  • You look funny.

  • Well, guess I'm never going to be a Hong Kong local district councillor.

  • The Biden Administration is reversing a Trump era blacklist of Chinese phone company Xiaomi.

  • The Trump Administration had put it on a trade black list because of links between Xiaomi

  • and the Chinese military.

  • Seven other Chinese companies were put on the same blacklist.

  • But Xiaomi sued, and won in a US court.

  • Soon after the victory, Reuters reported that other Chinese companies placed on the

  • same blacklist were considering similar lawsuits.”

  • A fantastic development.

  • See, by law, all Chinese companies have to work with the Chinese military.

  • They call it civil military fusion.

  • And now, Chinese military-linked companies like Xiaomi will be able to sell their hardware

  • devices in the US againto unsuspecting consumers.
