The Epoch Times “declassfied” video of op-ed written by Brad Johnson

 


thank you for joining me China has
00:04
decided or should I say the Chinese
00:07
regime has decided it wants to write its
00:09
own Bible and Quran that’s right in
00:12
November last year China made the
00:14
official decision to rewrite both the
00:17
Bible and the Koran in order to reflect
00:19
socialist values this is a political
00:23
tool that is needed as part of the
00:24
crackdown on the Muslim Uighur minority
00:27
there has been such a thorn in the side
00:29
of the Chinese regime the Chinese
00:32
Communist Party the CCP declared that
00:35
the revision will make sure that the
00:37
content of the Bible and the Quran do
00:39
not contradict socialism Karl Marx one
00:43
of the founding fathers of modern day
00:45
socialism wrote that religion is the
00:47
opium of the people while this is often
00:50
discussed it’s not the full quote from
00:52
the original German text the full quote
00:54
is commonly translated as this religion
00:58
is the sign of the oppressed creature
01:00
the heart of a heartless world and the
01:03
soul of soulless conditions it is the
01:06
opium of the people this anti religious
01:10
philosophy on the part of the left is
01:13
now pervasive worldwide and the distrust
01:16
and hatred for religion is shared by all
01:19
socialist regimes to one degree or
01:21
another this hatred from the left is
01:24
acted out on many levels even in the US
01:27
and is ultimately based on eradicating
01:30
any competition for absolute power it
01:33
boils down to that as is made abundantly
01:36
clear in China strong religious beliefs
01:38
are competition for the hearts and minds
01:41
of the population and ultimately for
01:43
power I can’t emphasize that enough
01:46
therefore religion is intolerable
01:49
however rather than eradicate religions
01:52
socialists have concluded it’s easier
01:54
and more effective to create parallel
01:56
religions that submit to socialism and
01:59
only pretend to submit to God in order
02:01
to entice the naive in this context the
02:05
CCP calls the Bible and the Koran
02:07
religious classics and they argue that
02:10
the revision is justified to ensure the
02:12
contents can
02:13
form to the progress of the times this
02:16
is a standard propaganda technique which
02:19
in simple terms is to devise a useful
02:22
but meaningless statement let me
02:24
elaborate on this point because it’s key
02:27
conforming with the progress of the time
02:29
as a classic example the statement is
02:32
essentially meaningless and therefore
02:34
nearly impossible to contradict but it
02:37
sounds good and justifies any act no
02:40
matter how cruel the average person
02:43
doesn’t look beyond that point in merely
02:45
accepts a proposition as the easiest
02:47
course of action anything from the Koran
02:50
or Bible that in any way supports her at
02:52
least doesn’t contradict socialism is
02:54
retained and emphasized everything else
02:56
is minimized or denigrated the state-run
03:00
Xinhua news agency which is basically
03:02
the mouthpiece of the state reported
03:05
that though order to revise the
03:07
religious text was given by the
03:09
committee for ethnic and religious
03:11
affairs of the National Committee of the
03:12
Chinese People’s Political Consultative
03:14
Conference did you get all that this
03:18
committee was formed by the Central
03:20
Committee of the Chinese Communist Party
03:22
of China and headed by Wong Yong
03:25
according to French newspaper Le Figaro
03:28
one stated categorically that religions
03:31
must follow orders from the Chinese
03:33
President and interpret religions in
03:36
accordance with the core values of
03:37
socialism and the requirements of the
03:40
era as the Chinese worldwide propaganda
03:43
campaign gains momentum physical force
03:46
is being used simultaneously to
03:48
persecute Christians and Muslims inside
03:51
China a large body of photographs and
03:55
detailed reporting has been smuggled out
03:57
of China however that shows a large
04:00
complex of concentration camps churches
04:02
being burned to the ground and many
04:04
forms of pressure on individuals who
04:06
don’t compromise their religious beliefs
04:08
in favor of socialism and estimates
04:11
claimed there at least 1 million workers
04:13
and other Muslims have been sent to
04:15
concentration camps now the CCP has long
04:18
denied even the existence of the
04:20
concentration camps but after the proof
04:22
became so plentiful and conclusive they
04:25
admitted to the
04:26
existence of what they call educational
04:29
centers dedicated to teaching job skills
04:32
right
04:33
and I want to say here that it doesn’t
04:35
end with concentration camps it gets
04:38
worse much worse according to the Falun
04:43
Dafa Information Center a growing body
04:45
of evidence indicates that Chinese
04:48
hospitals have been colluding with the
04:50
country’s police in a nefarious scheme
04:53
known as organ harvesting
04:55
they hold prisoners of conscience
04:58
against their will often illegally
05:00
examine them for organ compatibility and
05:03
then systematically remove their healthy
05:05
organs to supply transplants for a
05:08
booming transplantation industry and
05:11
their bodies are cremated that’s
05:12
according to eyewitnesses those targeted
05:16
wiggers we just spoke about the wiggers
05:18
Christians and Falun Gong if you haven’t
05:20
heard about Falun Gong it’s an ancient
05:23
Chinese spiritual discipline a kind of
05:25
Buddhist style and it consists of moral
05:28
teachings and meditation and for
05:30
exercises that improve health and
05:32
well-being and it became vastly popular
05:35
across China in the 1990s with the
05:38
number of people practicing it
05:39
outnumbering the members of the
05:42
Communist Party and that is when the
05:44
Communist Party decided to crack down on
05:47
them allegations of mass murder of Falun
05:51
Gong practitioners for organs have been
05:53
made since 2006 and the numbers possibly
05:58
running into tens of thousands annually
06:00
that’s according to estimates by Ethan
06:03
Gutmann who is an investigative
06:04
journalist David made US and
06:06
international human rights lawyer and
06:08
David Kilgour the former a former
06:11
Canadian Member of Parliament who
06:13
published their findings in 2016 now
06:16
that we’ve discussed what is happening
06:17
to the wiggers and the Christians and
06:20
the Falun Gong in China let’s turn our
06:23
attention to the US Constitution in the
06:26
United States and the West the same
06:28
techniques are being used by the left
06:31
for the exact same reasons here it is
06:34
called liberation theology which openly
06:37
admits to being a combination of
06:38
Christian theology and
06:40
and Marxism so Amex as in the case of
06:43
the CCP
06:44
the justification for many cruel acts is
06:47
given as a concern for the poor and
06:49
oppressed
06:50
once again this is essentially a
06:53
meaningless statement that’s very
06:56
difficult to contradict but can still be
06:58
used to justify pretty much anything
07:01
for example Liberation Theology church
07:04
members and supporters were widely
07:06
involved in the latin-american armed
07:09
conflicts of the 1980s and 1990s going
07:13
to the extreme of supplying arms and
07:15
ammunition to Marxist revolutions using
07:19
all the same techniques and for all of
07:21
the same reasons the US Constitution is
07:24
under constant constant assault from the
07:28
left the US Constitution was
07:30
specifically written and designed to
07:33
stop a single party or person from
07:36
taking absolute control in the United
07:39
States stated succinctly and limits
07:42
power which is why it’s intolerable for
07:45
the left and why we see the first and
07:48
second amendments in particular under
07:50
attack free speech and the right to own
07:53
and bear arms are two of the most basic
07:56
tenets of a free society and an
07:58
important part of why there’s still
08:01
freedom in the United States today the
08:04
left cause the US Constitution and
08:06
living document which is once again one
08:10
of those meaningless statements that is
08:12
difficult to contradict but is used to
08:14
justify tossing the Constitution and
08:17
writing another version that conforms
08:19
with the progress
08:22
you can see the similarity between what
08:25
we discussed earlier with the CCP the
08:28
Chinese Communist Party and this example
08:30
and those meaningless statements don’t
08:33
fall for it the US Constitution is the
08:35
single greatest document ever written by
08:37
man for men
08:38
albeit with a healthy dose of divine
08:41
inspiration openly acknowledged by its
08:44
authors many hundreds of years from now
08:46
future historians will see the light
08:48
that hovers over our Constitution and
08:50
shines down through the ages it should
08:53
be one of our greatest exports to the
08:55
rest of the world and we would be all
08:57
the better for it a few things to think
08:59
about there what comes to your mind
