Is not the University of Waterloo also a Concentration Camp?

你的社区的五毛 -

我的好朋友,如果你最近有关注西方的新闻,你有可能看到了很多媒体的报告关于我们的”再教育营“。这些没道理的外国人永远试着破坏我们国家的名胜,一旦有机会就说假话。他们说我们在违法的抓起来我们国家的穆斯林人,说我们在犯严重的侵犯人权。都有人把我们跟二战的德国比较,敢说我们对这些穆斯林就像纳粹对犹太人的对待。这些指责真的吓人的,一定得被改正。对西方朋友们,我们需要问你们一个问题关于你们的社会。难道你们没有这样的机构吗?难道我们现在所在的滑铁卢大学 – 一个全球各地出名的学校,不也是一个”再教育营“吗?政府在新疆开的这些机只是学校。全部他们的学生都是小心翼翼的挑选上的,为了帮助他们未来可以成为成功的国人。有一些被挑中的有可能没意识到自己有多少的天分,不明白他们有什么必要去上这些学校,但是那些老师和指导们都会努力的说服他们。这有可能就是大家提到的人权问题在哪里出现的。来给你们讲解这些问题为什么不存在,我们来跟滑铁卢比较比较。来滑铁卢的学生也都是很特别的人,也是小心被选上的。很多这里的学生也没有想来,但是因为他们的父母,老师,指导们,和整个西方社会的要求,也没有别的选择。到全部滑铁卢学生们毕业的时候,他们会意识到他们的未来被锁定了。很多人有误解新疆的这些学校。有人说这些学校会虐待他们的学生。这完全是错的。肯定有一些学生会觉得他们在学校里需要努力的比他们习惯多得多,或者他的学习压力很高。但是如果你要变成以后的临到,如果你有很大的梦想,你肯定需要受一点苦才能达到呢个级别。我们在滑铁卢不是也有一样的困难吗?有一些媒体会提到这些学校的住宅条件很差。我们没法否认这一点,因为住宅的条件本身就不是一个优先。学生们也就晚上睡个觉才需要用这些设备。钱可以被跟好的花在别的跟有意义的东西上。你看滑铁卢的住宅,也不是一样的吗?我们这边的学生一样有比较过我们的住宅和监狱的房间。有一些最可恶的媒体都喜欢说我们不让这些学生们回家。这根本不是一个规定,但是你想一想,滑铁卢每一个周末会有多少学生回家。整个学校算下来没几个,因为大家都在忙,都在努力的读书,学习。新疆这些学校也是一样的。们以后在网上看到什么傻逼发表的文章关于新疆的穆斯林,不要被他们的谎给骗了。好好的看一看你在滑铁卢经历过了什么然后意识他们跟你没差多少。我希望你们看了这篇发表以后能为自己思考然后不要被反国家的外国鬼子骗了。 My good friend, if you have recentlypaid attention to Western news, you mayhave seen a lot of media reports about our“re-education camp”. These unreasonableforeigners will always try to destroy thereputation of our country and tell liesif they have the opportunity. They saidthat we are illegally arresting Muslims inour country and that we […]
