Hu Xijin: The white mans impression of anti-Muslim in China reflects that the long-term demonization of Chinas national and religious policies by Western public opinion, especially the vicious smearing of Chinas governance in Xinjiang, has seriously misled Western society.
New Zealand today witnessed the bloodiest shooting in the countrys history. Gunners apparently with white supremacy extremism stormed two mosques, killing at least 40 people and wounding more than 20 others. Surprisingly, some people on the Internet actually look for Chinese elements from the extreme thoughts of the murderers and spoof China. Hu Xijin, the editor-in-chief of the Global Times, has just published an article on Weibo denouncing it.

In New Zealand, the bloodiest shooting in the countrys history, gunmen apparently with white supremacist extremism stormed two mosques, killing at least 40 people and wounding more than 20 others. This heinous killing, the perpetrators are not ashamed but proud, and even live broadcast their own crime, declaring that they are defending the white home.

To Hus surprise, some people on the Chinese Internet are keen to find Chinese elements from the extreme thoughts of the murderers. Because the murderer published a large number of materials which said: The country closer to my political and social values is China, those people seem to have made a significant discovery.
This information was ignored by almost all the mainstream Western media in the first time. Because the most prominent part of the murderers publication was his praise of President Trump, who declared himself a supporter of President Trump, not as a leader or policymaker, but as a symbol of redefining white identity and mission.

The white man who could not see that he had ever been to China could not have been influenced by China. So his remark about China only a few Chinese who are keen on black countries will immediately smell fragrant and pull it out as a gimmick to trick China. To be honest, its rather trivial to brush the net like this at this time.
However, the white mans anti-Muslim impression of China reflects that the long-term demonization of Chinas national and religious policies by Western public opinion, especially the vicious smear of Chinas governance in Xinjiang, has seriously misled Western society. How to strengthen our own voice and break the iron curtain of public opinion woven by the West is indeed a long-term challenge for China. For this reason, we should not make superficial articles, but take real and effective actions.
