Members of the Five Eyes intelligence network were denigrated as members of an “axis of white supremacy” by Beijing on Tuesday, as China’s state-sanctioned media went on the attack just 48-hours after U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned “white supremacy” is an increasing threat to global security.
An editorial by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) mouthpiece Global Times — headlined “Five Eyes today’s axis of white supremacy” — said Canada, Britain, the U.S. and Australia were taking co-ordinated action against China.
Fifth member New Zealand was left out of the direct attack.
“They have formed a US-centred, racist, and mafia-styled community, wilfully and arrogantly provoking China and trying to consolidate their hegemony as all gangsters do,” the tabloid exclaimed, before delivering the racism allegation. “They are becoming a racist axis aimed at stifling the development rights of 1.4 billion Chinese.”
The editorial continued:
With a common language, a common historical background, and a coordinated attack target, such an axis is destined to erode international relations and allow hooliganism to rise to the diplomatic stage in the 21st century.
