Who is Adrian Zenz? The Christian Fundamentalist Leading the Global Xinjiang Narrative

Dr Adrian Zenz is said to be a leading researcher into "the Chinese atrocities against the Uighurs". I decided to check him out.

Zenz is a fundamentalist Christian. Whilst religious affiliation does not discredit one, nevertheless the specific nature of his beliefs situate him (even as a German) on the most extreme right of the American evangelical wing bordering on lunacy and outright hysterical. Yet this individual is being used to ferment a global narrative concerning China, with total silence or background information offered on what he actually believes in.

However, this is not all it seems. Zenz is an individual with extremely questionable personal views, even ones which push on legal boundaries in many countries.

... because he is a zealous anti-Communist voice, he is instead presented as an infallible “expert” who ought never to be questioned and his actual views are never given scrutiny or critique.

Zenz states that all “other belief systems” to Christianity are “ultimately inspired by Satan” and that “those who reject faith in Jesus will be sentenced to eternal punishment.

This looks like a PRC front group.

That's a point, I will have to keep an eye on it. I will do more research on Dr Adrian Zenz.

Nope, the information given seems genuine.

The Chollima Report that Kaivey cites was founded and is edited by Tom Foley of the UK. Not PRC.

Oops. Tom Fowdy, not Foley. Sorry.

Is this the guy behind the anti-China Youtube channel?
He reminds me of the anchor.

I don't remember the name of the channel, but it used to show up in my recommendations when watching the Asian Boss channel.
