Listen: Confucius Institutes, China, Chinese Communist Party discussed on Don't Worry About The Government
"And I myself was university teacher as back in China before immigrant to Canada. So my main rose, basically indoctrinate. Universities students of the year Chinese governments or namely, the communist party's highly all g in propaganda on. So those are the materials you could find in the Confucius institutes, and they even find a. Catoon cartoon for kids for young kids on their website. The call it's internet Confucius institutes, whoever can learn Chinese from internet. So that cartoon song was was about the Korean war that it says in China way were taught it's not Korean war with we're not saying, it's Korean war. We say. Aggressive aggression of the US aggression to career, and the Chinese were helping the Koreans to defend from the invasion of of the US. So that's how we see Korean war. And that cartoon for kids was a song to educate kids about that part of history of cream war. But of course, it's not called Korean war. Of course. No, it's the Chinese defensive career. That makes sense. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So that's one problem. I found very troubling to us because now I'm Canadian I really cherish in value. Those, you know, freedom freedom of speech freedom of press freedom of believe an human rights and rule of law. All the, you know, found the mental values we cherish in west now becomes very. Threatened. I would say threatened by the Confucius institutes because they do it does export the Chinese communist party's propaganda into our schools now through through the Confucius institutes and the Confucius classroom. So that's one big problem. The propaganda and also there's some other big problems. Brought by the Confucius institutes, which are censorship and self-censorship. And because as you can imagine a certain topics are deemed by the Chinese government as sensitive or taboos like you just named Tibet independence or Taiwan independence or human rights or ten in the nineteen eighty nine Channon massacre in China, the they're not saying massacre. Of course, they would say Taman turmoil. It says rebellious or something. Yeah. Right. Like riots is I was young back then and I remembered on TV on China Central Television, which stayed on TV station outlets on the TV entre assisted TV with the imagery of people. Burning the military trucks, and the anchor would would tell us that those riots are burning the People's Liberation Army soldiers and the soldiers are so plied, and very, you know, very restricted the didn't hurt the students or the Beijing civilins. So all all the back things don't by the people or by the students towards the People's Liberation Army. And then it was surprised. So that's how they describe the nineteen thousand nine ten and massacre to us that of course, it's not the fact we win know. And also, the TV station would say, there's no not a single China's people died in that huge turmoil. But it's not fact. Who off try immigrant to Canada? I knew there's many people died. And so that's why that one sort of iconic video of the man standing in front of the tank, I think has certain salience for you. Because it's stained star contrast to what the Chinese government is saying, right? I didn't I didn't see that image that famous image until I left China onto arrived the Canada. So I didn't know the truth all the time all the us when I was in China, and of course, the persecution alot suppression of fallen going. I heard about that some people I have a head friends or even relatives practice fungal. I didn't know much because the media is controlled very tightly controlled by the Chinese communist party what to report what not to report. And how you report what? Language, you use to describe surgeon things or descript history or current affairs. So it's all about control and sometimes they lie as well. Of course, the distort history. So those are. What Chinese people are taking into our life on a daily basis? No matter you, paper magazine, you hear radio like yours, or what TV or movie or pop songs, or you know, entertainment, anything it's about the states. Yeah. You have to stay the party line. Yeah.."
