How can you defend a communist government that actively commits human rights abuse?

People's Republic of China is a nation that has become infamous for their human rights abuses in places like Xinjiang and recently Hong Kong. Because of this, some companies and countries ended up cutting ties with China. However some have decided to keep on trading with China as they need to get money from it which by itself is all right, but some companies and the websites end up going as far as defending China or even praising their actions or even going as far as to suppress anyone who disagrees with them.

This list ranges from suppression (Blizzard's) far left's or even apologists (New York Times). Down below are notable examples.

Examples

Note: For them to qualify on the list, they must be defenders of the government, not the country itself.
