Canadian Couple Claims that Confucius Institute was Brainwashing Her Daughter

Published

A Canadian couple decided to pull their daughter out of a Confucius Institute in a school in their neighborhood.

The Fredericton, New Brunswick family decided to take their child out of this program because they believe it was used to brainwash their daughter.

Bronwyn Bonney and Parker Coates told the CBC they were surprised last year that they weren’t informed their daughter was enrolled in this program.

The Chinese government funds this program and uses teachers from China. Although it claims to provide a neutral discussion about China, many people believe Confucius Institutes serve as propaganda outlets for China and seek to spread its influence through soft power.

This Canadian couple is the first to voice their concerns publicly about Confucius Institutes.

The Confucius Institute teaches Chinese language and culture in New Brunswick schools but doesn’t allow anyone to ask questions about the country’s authoritarian government and human rights abuses.

“This program is inherently propaganda,” Bonney declared during an interview. “It’s propaganda in that it’s an effort to brainwash and influence people’s ideas of a certain place.

“The reasons why these partnerships exist is because China wants to enhance its soft power globally. That means teaching students a one-sided story about their country: how do we raise awareness of China being an exclusively wonderful place.”

Bonney and Coates were able to obtain copies of contracts between the province and the institute that demonstrate how much more difficult it has become for New Brunswick to end its partnership with the Confucius Institute.

The original 2007 contract allowed either party to cancel the agreement with six months’ notice.

However, the 2017 renewal agreement removed this clause after China requested a change in this agreement.

Since 2007, the Confucius Institute has been in New Brunswick and is present in 40 schools as of 2018. The Chinese government controls the course content.

The institute offers courses in Chinese language and culture which includes calligraphy, food and dance. However, Coates contends that this is propaganda by omission, because there is no mention of China’s authoritarianism.

“We’re talking about a nation that right now has hundreds of thousands of people in internment camps for having the wrong kind of Chinese culture,” Coates stated.

“Chinese citizens who are Muslim or Falun Gong are being incarcerated, and we’re welcoming this in to teach our children about Chinese culture. That just seems totally out of whack.”

Back in February, Education Minister Dominic Cardy announced that he wanted the institute to leave provincial schools by June.

However, Premier Blaine Higgs stated the government must fulfill its end of the contract, which doesn’t expire until 2022.

Bonney and Coates took their daughter out of the 30 minute sessions that take place once a week for the 2018-19 school year.

They stressed how much they enjoy Connaught Street School. They view it as “a warm and welcoming place” with great teachers on staff.

However, their concerns with the institute’s mission made them file right-to-information requests regarding its dealings with the province.

The documents unveiled the following:

  • The original 2007 contract allowed the province or the institute to terminate the deal with six months’ notice, freeing them from “any further obligations,” but the 2017 version, which runs to 2022, prevents either side from pulling out “ahead of time.”
  • The contract says if one side backs out, it must compensate the other side for “all the investment made under this Agreement, the legal expense and the indemnity for defamation.”
  • A 2018 proposed syllabus for all 40 institute schools in the province suggests mixing China-approved social studies content with the existing New Brunswick curriculum, saying the institute’s material could be “introduced into local social subject, combined and match[ed] with local teachers’ lesson planning to complement each other.”
  • The institute offers school and district officials 10-day trips to China every summer “to begin or strengthen their school’s Chinese programs and partnerships.” Participants pay for flights, but all expenses in China are covered by the institute.

Various universities in Canada, the U.S., Sweden and Germany have either broken their ties with Confucius Institutes in the last five years or did not renew their contracts because of concerns of China using these institutes to project its influence internationally.

The U.S. and other Western countries would be wise to discontinue relationships with these organizations.

Mexican Government Reported that Nearly 80,000 People are Still Missing

Mexico Spirals Out of Control While Joe Biden Promises Mass Amnesty

According to a report released by the Mexican government on November 25, 2020, over 79,500 people are still missing in Mexico.

This comes in the backdrop of Mexico’s infamous military offensive against drug cartels in 2006. Since the erstwhile president Felipe’s military offensive against drug cartels, the number of missing people in Mexico has skyrocketed.

Before 2006, there were 1,500 disappearances in Mexico, per statistics that Deputy Human Rights Minister Alejandro Encina put forward. Since July, there have been roughly 6,300 new cases reported.

Encina observed, however, that the number of disappearances have dropped since 2019.

Mexico is notorious for its alarming levels of violence, which is largely perpetuated by organized crime. In 2019, 34,582 people were murdered. So far in 2020, 26,431 people have been murdered from January to September. 

Encinas claimed that Mexican authorities have discovered 1,399 mass graves in Mexico over the past two years. Of the 2,290 bodies discovered in the graves, 879 have been identified.

Mexico is not in good shape and that’s putting it lightly. America at least recognized this with Donald Trump in office. Trump was elected on an America First platform which stressed tough policies on the border and was not willing tolerate mass immigration like his predecessors.

Sadly, the apparent president-Joe Biden is more concerned with trying to pass mass amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens and freezing deportations for 100 days.

Securing our Southern border is a recognition of the cold, hard truth that Mexico is falling apart, and it’s institutional and social rot could potentially make its way up north. Much to America’s chagrin, the next occupant of the White House will likely not recognize that. Should fraud allegations fail to invalidate the current results of  the 2020 elections, America First patriots must act accordingly and make immigration a massive issue during the 2022 midterms, both in the primaries and general election.
