I am fed-up with all this left-wing hippy bollocks about Tibet. What makes it worse is that everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon. You have all varieties of scumbags from politicians to “celebrities” going on protests and moaning about the so-called plight of the Tibetan people.
Anyone with a rational, common sense approach can see that these protests are wrong and are based on various lies, most of them shamelessly perpetuated by Dan Cruickshank in his disgraceful programme The Lost World Of Tibet.
Lie 1: Tibet was a sovereign nation between 1912 and 1951.
This is false. Yes Tibet did declare independence but China never renounced its claim to sovereignty over Tibet. Also no country in the world recognised Tibet as an independent sovereign nation.
Lie 2: Tibetans boasts a rich culture.
Once again this is a lie. Tibetans are essentially a group of nomadic tribes, who travel around the countryside living off the land. This means that Tibetans did not have a single united society and therefore there is no homogenous Tibetan culture. Tibetans only acquired a single society (and its culture) when, the Chinese, then the Mongols and finally the Chinese again, came in and created one. Consequently any culture that exists in Tibet is essentially Chinese.
Lie 3: Tibetans are tortured by the Chinese for being Tibetan.
This is more ignorant than a lie. Yes Tibetans are tortured but so are pro-democracy protestors in the rest of China. Tibetans are tortured in spite of being Tibetan and not because of it. At the end of the day China is still a communist country and torture is a method still used by the police. If anyone protests at the lack of democracy then torture is bound to be used by the Chinese authorities because that is the way they do things in China.
Well there you go. You now know the truth about Tibet. Tibet never was an independent sovereign nation. So the next time you see a “Free” Tibet protest, you will know that the protestors are nothing more that a bunch of freeloading wankers with nothing better to do.
