(Natural News) The Walt Disney Corporation is back in the news after it was revealed that its new live-action remake of Mulan was filmed in Xinjiang, a province in communist China that is jam-packed with Uyghur Muslim concentration camps.
After earlier threatening to cease all business in Georgia due to the state’s efforts to protect the lives of the unborn, Disney is now proudly filming movies in partnership with one of the most oppressive regimes in the world.
According to reports, Disney is well aware of the widespread human rights abuses taking place in Xinjiang, where millions of Muslims and other oppressed people groups are subjected to torture, forced organ harvesting, forced sterilization, forced abortions and other horrors. But the company appears not to care.
“This is another terrible example of corporate hypocrisy,” says David Quinn, director of the Dublin-based Iona Institute for Religion and Society.
“Disney threatened to boycott Georgia because of its religious freedom law, but then thanks officials in Xinjiang province for their help in making Mulan, even though the worst human rights abuse in the world today, and the worst attack on religious freedom is taking place in that province,” he adds. “It is scandalous.”
Disney offers “special thanks” to communist China in movie credits
At no point in time has Disney even addressed the fact that communist China continues to enslave people who resist its tyranny, let alone threaten not to do business there like it did to the state of Georgia.
“Disney and Marvel are inclusive companies, and although we have had great experiences filming in Georgia, we will plan to take our business elsewhere should any legislation allowing discriminatory practices be signed into state law,” a Disney spokesperson stated last year.
Disney’s inclusivity policies apparently do not apply to Uyghur Muslims, Falun Gong Buddhists, or anyone else on communist China’s extermination list. Not only that, but Disney is actually proud to do business with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), giving “special thanks” to eight different government entities in the film’s credits, “including the public security bureau in Turpan, a city in eastern Xinjiang where several re-education camps are located,” writes Dr. Thomas D. Williams, Ph.D., for Breitbart News.
Disney also made sure to thank the “publicity department of CPC Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomy Region Committee,” which is nothing more than the propaganda department of the CCP in Xinjiang.
Roughly a year ago, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security made a declaration that the Turpan Municipality Bureau of Public Security, which Disney specifically thanked in Mulan‘s credits, is “acting contrary to the foreign policy interests of the United States.”
These contrary actions include “human rights violations and abuses in the implementation of China’s campaign of repression, mass arbitrary detention, and high-technology surveillance against Uighurs, Kazakhs, and other members of Muslim minority groups,” according to the Department of Commerce.
The truth of the matter, as stated perfectly by Quinn, is that corporations like Disney “make moralistic, ‘woke’ noises, but they only care about the bottom line.” Disney is also guilty of catering to CCP interests at the expense of American interests, which could implicate the company in committing treason.
It almost seems intentional that Disney chose to praise Xinjiang authorities and run production there “at a time when most of the global discussion about Xinjiang is about appalling mass detention of people outside of any legal process on the basis of their ethnic and religious identity, about forced labor, torture and unparalleled destruction of religious freedom,” says Human Rights Watch China director Sophie Richardson.
