A Chinese government official who previously claimed the Communist Party of China (CPC) is a “great party” and said that human rights violations in China were “lies” gave a speech this past weekend at Harvard University.
Huang Ping, who has been the consul general of China’s New York Consulate since 2018, attended the 25th annual Harvard College China Forum at Harvard Business School on Saturday, where he gave a speech celebrating China’s efforts to “build a great modern socialist country.”
“Over the past 100 years, the CPC has united and led the Chinese people to achieve world-renowned achievements in developing our country and improving people’s lives,” Huang said, according to a transcript by China’s ministry of foreign affairs. “China will unswervingly be a builder of world peace, a contributor to global development, and a defender of the international order, and will continue to make unremitting efforts for human development and progress.”
Huang is a staunch defender of the CPC and has previously denied the existence of a genocide being committed against Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang, despite statements to the contrary by the U.S. State Department and the Holocaust Museum.
……Huang also called the CPC a “great party” and described the internment camps in which Uyghurs are detained as educational.
“I see these centers as a campus, rather than camps,” he said at the time. “We get these people there to be educated. And this has been quite effective in terms of countering terrorism and in de-radicalization. Up to now, there has not been a single terrorist attack in exactly four years.”
……Huang’s visit to Harvard followed a report from Fox News Digital last week about China securing $120 million in contracts with U.S. universities in 2021. The report cited a Wall Street Journal article from 2020 about the Department of Education investigating Harvard and Yale as part of an ongoing review that has discovered U.S. universities failed to report at least $6.5 billion in foreign funding from countries like China and Saudi Arabia.
Oh yeah, the CCP is a “great party”, if you like crackdowns on free speech, authoritarian lockdowns that are starving people to death, and beating family pets to death on the streets because of “Covid”, their aggressive military buildup, threats against Taiwan, and manufacture of bioweapons in the Wuhan lab. That’s a liberal’s wet dream. They’ll welcome a tool for the ChiComs, but forbid conservatives to speak at the college and allow angry mobs to attack them if they appear. Just think, wealthy parents spend thousands of dollars to send their little darlings to this propaganda sausage factory.
Harvard is garbage.
