Chinese government continues persecution of Christians, Barbados continues begging for Chinese handouts

Trading Bajan silence on Christian persecution for cash

Remind me… What was that verse about the ‘love of money’ ?

We Bajans are so selective in our outrage. Worse than Americans really – for if the Americans ban products from Cuba while still doing business with China, the largest single human rights violator in the world, at least the US Government criticizes China’s government for slave camps and other violations of human rights, even as the US continues to do business.

Bajans, however, remain silent about China’s ongoing human rights violations.

How can it be that Barbados – a country founded upon slavery, whips, rape, kidnapping and all manner of human misery – remains silent about China, a country that still maintains the largest slave camp system in the world? How can our government say nothing about the Chinese government kidnapping pregnant women and forcing abortions as government officials hold down screaming mothers? How can we say nothing about China destroying hundreds of Christian churches and imprisoning millions because of their religious beliefs?

The answer is this: The Chinese government purchases Bajan silence in exchange for gifts of cash, travel and material goods. It is in the economic interests of our Government and of certain businesses and individual Bajans to forget about China’s slave camps, religious persecution, forced abortion and infanticide.

And so we remain silent, and even embrace Barbados China friendship.

  2. Party Animal

    In Sandy times 30.000 went home.. who wanna bet this is a repeat.
    I don’t feel sorry for those who are going home that had no right with the Political vote job in the first place.
    I hope in the next elections the Private Sector remembers the problems they have caused for the Country and don’t give either Party a cent. Let the Parties canvas on their own merit and not money.

  3. Green Monkey

    at least the US Government criticizes China’s government for slave camps and other violations of human rights, even as the US continues to do business….. although, to be truthful, when it finds it convenient or necessary for enhancing profits of multinational corporations or for basic propaganda purposes the US and its mainstream media organs know well enough how to turn a blind eye to plenty other human rights abuses and abusers.

    35 Countries Where the U.S. Has Supported Fascists, Drug Lords and Terrorists
    Here’s a handy A to Z guide to U.S.-backed international crime.

    SNIP

    Behind a firewall of impunity and protection from the State Department and the CIA, U.S. clients and puppets have engaged in the worst crimes known to man, from murder and torture to coups and genocide. The trail of blood from this carnage and chaos leads directly back to the steps of the U.S. Capitol and the White House. As historian Gabriel Kolko observed in 1988, “The notion of an honest puppet is a contradiction Washington has failed to resolve anywhere in the world since 1945.” What follows is a brief A to Z guide to the history of that failure.

    1. Afghanistan

    In the 1980s, the U.S. worked with Pakistan and Saudi Arabia to overthrow Afghanistan’s socialist government. It funded, trained and armed forces led by conservative tribal leaders whose power was threatened by their country’s progress on education, women’s rights and land reform. After Mikhail Gorbachev withdrew Soviet forces in 1989, these U.S.-backed warlords tore the country apart and boosted opium production to an unprecedented level of 2,000 to 3,400 tons per year. The Taliban government cut opium production by 95% in two years between 1999 and 2001, but the U.S. invasion in 2001 restored the warlords and drug lords to power. Afghanistan now ranks 175th out of 177 countries in the world for corruption, 175th out of 186 in human development, and since 2004, it has produced an unprecedented 5,300 tons of opium per year. President Karzai’s brother, Ahmed Wali Karzai, was well known as a CIA-backed drug lord. After a major U.S. offensive in Kandahar province in 2011, Colonel Abdul Razziq was appointed provincial police chief, boosting a heroin smuggling operation that already earned him $60 million per year in one of the poorest countries in the world.

  4. just asking

    since the USA is such a terrible place to live & work why so so many Barbadians & Caribbean people love to go there to shop including Government Ministers & their wives, those who can get an American Visa or Waiver permission. As for China our Government want to learn how to crack heads & kill their own citizen if they protest even if it peaceable.
