This week on Antiwar Radio, Scott is joined by Patrick MacFarlane to discuss the narrative that China is conducting a genocide against the Uyghurs of Xinjiang, its westernmost region. The narrative has become prominent over the past few years, especially with anti-China hawks. But MacFarlane shows that most of the “evidence” of genocide can be traced back to a German anthropologist named Adrian Zenz. Scott and MacFarlane dig into some of the obvious problems with Zenz’s work and put the U.S. Government’s connection to the Uyghurs in context.
Discussed on the show:
- “Credibility and the ‘Xinjiang Police Files’” (Libertarian Institute)
- “The Red Line and the Rat Line” (London Review of Books)
