Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Thanks for the typos - and . . .
. . I don't think politics is involved in the Tibetan vs Chinese Buddhism thing, the people giving these opinions are not Chinese or Tibetans. This argument has been going on among students of religion forever. The majority opinion is they are different enough to be separate forms, even though Chinese Buddhism probably was introduced from Tibet.

Of course, since the opinions we are likely to see are from non-Chinese, if there was political bias, it would be toward separate forms.

If the opinions were official Chinese, it would be to discourage any religion.
New "... to discourage any religion ..."
After first claiming that no, Chinese Buddhism did not come from Tibet, they copied it from us, and stop it anyway.

I've not seen any indication that would lead me to believe that I could say that.
