Ryan McCarthy - Reports on China ‘organ harvesting’ derive from front groups of far-right cult Falun Gong

A wave of corporate media reports on Chinese organ harvesting rely without acknowledgement on front groups connected to the far-right Falun Gong cult, whose followers believe “Trump was sent by heaven to destroy the Communist Party.”


Western corporate media outlets have gone wild with claims that the Chinese state is “harvesting” the organs of ethnic minorities and political opposition figures. But an investigation by The Grayzone has found that these allegations originate from front groups run by the far-right opposition cult Falun Gong.

Anybody who knows Falun Gong people know they are not "far-right". No doubt there is some propaganda involved in this, but China has been violently oppressing, killing, and, inter alia, culling the organs of Falun Gong for decades, now. China, for all its recent rise, is still a country of slave labour and tyranny.

All tensions with the Falung Gong could be resolved overnight -- the Gov. of China could just allow freedom of religion, which would work for Tibetans and Uighurs to. That this is not proposed, or even recognized as the only viable solution reveals how brutal the Chinese régime is, and how unfounded the media attacks against the Falung Gong.

The Chinese people have historic reasons to fear underground religious movements. They have caused civil wars, and one killed 20 million of them.

Organ harvesting is CIA propaganda.

Here we have an article who actually tries to dig into what’s behind the accusations of organ harvesting. But what is that compared to Marian Ruccius harping the same accusation that is under scrutiny in the article.

It’s so cute that the right wing nut job who wants to bomb countries based on what protester are shouting care so much for China’s poorest.

Does he care for the poorest in the US. Nah.... They deserve it those lazy dinking drug addicts.

Organ harvesting in China, among prisoners and those the state considers "undesirable" has been going on at least since the late 1990s (when there wer number of UN reports and studies on the China-South-East-Asia illegal organ trade. And the UN continues to say that organ-harvesting is a problem. Remember, the Chinese régime is one in which the families of those executed are required to pay for the bullets used in their relatives' executions.

Ever hear of the 30 years war, Kaivey? Religious killing on the large scale is part of the "West"'s history too, but we moved passed it in the main, through the growth of democratic rights. The Chinese Government has not only killed, tortured and abused Falung Gong, about a decade ago they started punishing those who promote Daoist thought -- all part of a cynical campaign to emphasize "Confucian" values, since daoism was deemed too individualistic, and therefore dangerous to the State. The genocidal behaviour of the Chinese state in Tibet is well documented, as are the horrific abuses against Uighurs. The UN is a better guide in this:

Or try this 2006 bibliography of evidence from the International Journal of Legal Information -- the Official Journal of the International Association of Law Libraries. If you have evidence that suggests this mountain of evidence is false, produce it. Otherwise, accept that the fact that the CIA does bad things does not mean that the Chinese government is not a terrible despotism. You guys are like all the lefties who disputed Stalin's purges or the Katyn massacre. That was a shameful episode for the Left (founded it should be said on deep experience of capitalist propaganda, but still, when one has to rely on a extreme right-winger such as Robert Conquest to unearth the truth, then you know you have gone wrong somewhere). The Chinese government is beyond brutal -- and you do not help the causes of truth and justice by simply blaming the CIA (however criminal its activities).
