The People’s Republic of China, the home of rule by law (not rule of law), has retroactively legalized its “internment” camps, which the government is using to jail reeducate recalcitrant Muslims in its western province of Xinjiang.
Chinese authorities in the far-northwestern region of Xinjiang on Wednesday revised legislation to permit the use of “education and training centers” to combat religious extremism.
So far—so far, mind you—a million Muslims are…housed…in those camps.
The camps are strongly reminiscent of those of President Xi Jinping’s early predecessor, Mao Tse-tung. Mao sent 16-18 million children and millions more adults to his “reeducation” camps.
Xi is off to a good start.
