|EZBraid, straight from a Chinese Prison camp to you!|
Would it bother you if you knew they were shorn from the tresses of Chinese political prisoners being held in prison camps? There is a good chance that they did.
Last week, Federal officials seized thirteen tons of hair products suspected to have been harvested in Western Chinese internment camps. This is the second such seizure this year.
As I have written about previously, the Chinese government has been holding approximately one million ethnic Uighur and Kazakh minorities in Xianjiang prisons for the last four years. And word is, they have been cutting the prisoners' hair like they were penned farm animals.
This is obviously despicable, as is so much of their behavior these days. Don't support them by buying purloined hair. It is very bad karma.
The Chinese have never stopped their predatory behavior. In 1962 they fought a brief war with India over the Arachanal Pradesh and Aksai Chin regions near Southern Tibet. Their expansionism never ceases.
Unfortunately China is still engaging in this sort of behavior, both in the border with India and in the South China Sea where they now regularly bully Vietnam, Brunei, Indonesia, the Philippines and Malaysia.
The people in Hong Kong were giddy when they secured their release from Britain in 1997. China had agreed to institute a "one country, two systems" arrangement and protect the freedoms and independence the people of Hong Kong enjoyed. We now know that was false. They were sold a bill of goods. The Chinese are instituting the same totalitarian heavy fist and oppression that the people in Communist China have been brutally subject to since the Communists took over.
Under the Xi government, Chinese officials have purged political opposition; bloggers, activists and lawyers have been unjustly prosecuted; stringent controls have been imposed to censor not only media, but universities, businesses and non-governmental organizations; citizens and corporations have been targeted with surveillance; and people perceived as dissidents have been subjected to arbitrary detention, torture and abuse.Anyone who protests the regime is arrested and disappears without a trace. In an incredible irony, many Hong Kong residents are fleeing to the mortal enemy of the regime, Taiwan. Some are making it to Britain. This will not end well.
