The Racist Rhetoric of the Pro-Tibetan Movement

This essentially ‘Cold War’ rhetoric presents the Tibetan people through a highly racialised filter, very much in the mould of WWII era Japanese militarism and fascism (which depicted the Japanese people as being both physically and spiritually superior to all other ethnic groups). It is also something akin to Hitlerism, and the notion of a ‘pure race’ and of a race of ‘supermen’.
