China’s state-run Global Times on Sunday claimed the Kyle Rittenhouse trial “ exposes the illness of the U. S i9000. political system” and argued the not-guilty verdict proves American democracy “ has failed to heal the illness of social polarization and racial divergence. ”
As with many Chinese language propaganda publications, the Global Times editorial largely regurgitated the obsessions and criticisms of far-left U. S. media, mixed with confident declarations from “ Chinese experts” that America’s bitter divisions have sealed its doom.
That is how the Chinese language paper saw evidence of “ racial divergence” in the test of a white youth exactly who shot three white men in self-defense, and frequently muttered the Rittenhouse jury “ appeared to be overwhelmingly white-colored. ” American media figures keep saying things like that, therefore Chinese state media says it, too.
The “ Chinese experts” sagely concluded America will stay divided until it wises up and embraces one-party authoritarianism like China:
Chinese experts said that cases such as this which could spark conflicts and assault in the US will increase as both Democrats and the Republicans want to make the best use of the divergence between left and right, black and white, rather than recover and unify the community, because the two parties survive on and profit from deteriorating social divisions.
This is an illness that is deeply rooted in the bones of the US’ two-party political program. “ US democracy” can be losing the ability to solve this type of problem and more similar situations will take place in the future, observers observed.
In China, in comparison, there is very little racial turmoil because troublesome minorities are forced into concentration camps plus used as slave labor . Imagine just how much chaos and division there could be in Chinese politics if groups like the Uyghurs and Tibetans had inalienable rights and enjoyed political representation!
