Chinese Communist Party head for U-Tsang region of occupied Tibet, Wu Yingjie, had a breakdown on Wednesday, announcing to a robotic audience of party loyalists that the Dalai Lama hasn’t done a “single good thing” for the territory.

Exhibiting clear delusional behavior he insisted that Tibetans are “extremely grateful for the prosperity that the Communist Party has brought them.”. That’s like a serial arsonist arguing that his destructive and deadly obsession is deeply appreciated by local fire fighters!

Beyond the fantasies and denial Mr Yingjie felt that his claims required some supposedly ‘independent’ corroboration so he called upon a Tibetan stooge to declare that ‘there’s no such thing as adoration for the Dalai Lama among Tibetans’.

Such stage-managed deceptions and propaganda of the Chinese regime will never alter the reality that in each Tibetan heart burns a devotion to the Dalai Lama and a hope that once day Tibet will regain its national freedom. At that time then the truth will emerge, without fear of Chinese torture, prison or forced-labor camps!

Respected Journal On Tibet Promoting Chinese Regime’s Deceptions

Respected Journal On Tibet Promoting Chinese Regime's Deceptions

Couple of weeks back we reported on a Tibetan online news source which was using Chinese propaganda terms for Tibetan place-names and territories. The journalist who wrote the particular article very kindly contacted us to express her understanding on the concerns we had raised. Hopefully there will be progress on that.

Meanwhile today we see on the front page of the highly respected Tibetan Review a headline that may have been scripted in China’s ‘Minstry Of Deception’. This is very disappointing. Another highly respected Tibetan publication promoting the disinformation of the Chinese regime.

As we noted previously when something’s plain bad we’re going to call it out, especially if it’s negatively impacting on a clear and accurate understanding of Tibet.

Its March 5 report on the recent blizzard in Eastern Tibet with some concern. Apart from the sadness on reading of the loss of animals and hardship for Tibetans, our attention was distracted by descriptions of Tibet in the language of the Chinese regime. This particularly troubling as the Tibetan Review is edited and administered by Tibetans based in India.

The report was headlined as: ‘Snowstorms affect 120,000 people, over 1 million livestock in Qinghai’. This last term comes right out of the Chinese regime’s geographical place-name committee and is a propaganda construction. Designed to promote the baseless claim that Tibet’s part of China. Such descriptions are calculated to mislead and deceive people, a fact which the Editor of the Tibetan Review would be acutely aware of. So why therefore is this much respected journal on Tibet repeating such pro-Chinese regime distortions?

We can only presume they apply this policy through a combination of the following. An ill-judged belief that in so doing reports are invested with a veneer of detached objectivity, although how uncritically repeating the lies of China’s regime achieves that status is of course debateable. Alternatively it maybe an example of lazy journalism, simply copying and pasting China’s official narrative that’s so corrosively available across the internet.

Whatever the reasons, surely the Tibetan Review would realize its responsibility to ensure its readers and subscribers are provided reports which aren’t tainted with the bias of Chinese propaganda terminology. But it’s not so easy to be complacent on that when reading content such as: “…Yushu (Tibetan: Yulshul) Prefecture of Qinghai Province”. This syntax is widely used and promoted by the Chinese authorities. Yet it was given editorial approval!

For the record and purposes of accuracy, the location in the report lies within the area of Gyêgumdo (Jyekundo being the main town) a part of Kham region of occupied Tibet.

That the language medium of the Tibetan Review is in English shows its reaching out to a wider readership than the exiled Tibetan community. As such its highly regarded output has a critical role in assuring that Tibet, its cause and territories is represented accurately and factually. Regurgitating the falsehoods of China’s tyrannical government fails that objective.

We again call upon its editor and reporters not to describe Tibetan territory according to the cynical dictates of China’s regime. They need to reflect upon the following question. In what way are you serving a true and authentic reportage on Tibet by replacing traditional Tibetan place-names with those fabricated by the Chinese authorities?

Tibet’s Capital City Is Not Safe Under Chinese Occupation!

In a sleepless effort to push its toxic disinformation on Tibet the Chinese authorities regularly re-write not only historical facts but display a degree of delusion which psychiatrists would advise requires immediate medication. The self-deception and denial which characterizes its claims on Tibet has reached such a stage that dictator Xin Jinping and his politbureau comrades are beginning to confuse their cynical falsehoods as factual representations.

Take a headline in today’s Global Times (a mouthpiece for China’s regime, which postures as an independent media outlet) which announced that the Tibetan capital, Lhasa headed a list of what it described as “China’s (sic) safest cities”.

How has this claimed condition been achieved? Well to examine that spurious and engineered claim we need look no further than comments made by a Mr Wang Liang, described as a senior official of Lhasa Public Security Bureau. Who’s reported to have announced, no doubt with some pride, that: ‘Lhasa has enhanced people’s sense of security through innovative social governance’.

Now there’s a phrase that ranks as euphemism of the year!

Lhasa like the rest of occupied Tibet is not ‘safe’ but effectively under martial law by a foreign occupier and the ‘crime’ featured in the report is coded language for any sign of Tibetan dissent against Chinese rule. This reality is even hinted at within the article which discloses that there are over 100 ‘police service stations’ in the city. Although it chooses not to mention in addition the 24/7 ‘security’ monitoring, torture centers and forced labor camps within the Lhasa area!

So let’s expose this delusional and fallacious report for what it is.

It’s like a psychopath holding a gun to the head of someone and warning them to shut the hell up, while announcing to the cops that his diligent action had pacified the hostage!
