“Repeat a lie a thousand times and it becomes the truth.”
This quote is attributed to one of the most evil men who ever lived, Dr. Joseph Goebbels, propaganda minister of the Nazi German. Goebbels was sentenced to death many years ago. Unfortunately, his legacy still prevail today. He inspired the western main stream media on how to bash China. That is,
“Repeat demonizing China a thousand times and China becomes a evil country.”
As such an example, NYT reporter Scott Shane recently wrote an article to continue the campaign of demonizing China. The title of the article is “China Inspired Interrogations at Guantánamo”. After reading this article, I want to remind you these facts: fact 1, the US government tortured detainees in Guantánamo; fact 2, the torture techniques used in Guantánamo had existed long before the China Communist Party ever exist. Actually, some of the torture techniques were used by Nazi German during WWII. So why doesn’t Mr. Shane title his article as “Nazi Inspired Interrogations at Guantánamo”?
So what is the intention behind Mr. Shane’s report? I can think of these: first, to distract the attention from fact that the US government was torturing detainees in Guantánamo; and secondly, to continue demonizing China. One cannot help wondering why NYT is so eager to help the US government on this matter? Is NYT behaving like a US government spokeman for doing this?
This kind of reports do not surprise me at all. As a faithful follower of Goebbels, the western main stream media have been doing this for many decades, and I have no doubt that they will continue doing so in the future. Their techniques might be superior thanks to years of polishing, but they can never change the truth. And we will continue disclosing these truth to you, our readers.
