Kudos to the Washington Post for this headline: China’s coronavirus propaganda campaign is putting lives at risk.

Not the same with some of their colleagues and some Democrats who are flocking to communist China’s new propaganda:

This is insane puppetry for the CPC.

One reporter (in a now-deleted and later reposted Tweet, below mine) said the insinuation that China was accusing the United States military of anything lacked any evidence.

Zero evidence?

Here’s the New York Times: China Spins Tale That the U.S. Army Started the Coronavirus Epidemic

Oh, and here is the Spokesperson and Deputy Director General for communist China’s Information Department and Foreign Ministry who literally typed out the accusation with his hands and hit “send Tweet” on his official, verified Twitter account:

And here is China’s state-run paper flirting with the idea of withholding antibiotics from the United States as punishment for daring to note their blame in this pandemic, writing if they stopped shipping medicines “the United States would sink into the hell of a novel coronavirus epidemic.” From Marc Theissen: “This virus should be forever linked to the regime that facilitated its spread.”

I’ve spent the past couple of weeks discussing comment China’s abhorrent actions that led to this pandemics explosion. Here are some:

Communist China had records of the virus destroyed in the early days. They bullied the World Health Organization (again) into helping them downplay the severity of the outbreak:

Communist China targeted and arrested doctors trying to warn the public:

In the middle of the night, officials from the health authority in the central city of Wuhan summoned Dr. Li, demanding to know why he had shared the information. Three days later, the police compelled him to sign a statement that his warning constituted “illegal behavior.”


The government’s initial handling of the epidemic allowed the virus to gain a tenacious hold. At critical moments, officials chose to put secrecy and order ahead of openly confronting the growing crisis to avoid public alarm and political embarrassment.

A reconstruction of the crucial seven weeks between the appearance of the first symptoms in early December and the government’s decision to lock down the city, based on two dozen interviews with Wuhan residents, doctors and officials, on government statements and on Chinese media reports, points to decisions that delayed a concerted public health offensive.

In those weeks, the authorities silenced doctors and others for raising red flags. They played down the dangers to the public, leaving the city’s 11 million residents unaware they should protect themselves. They closed a food market where the virus was believed to have started, but didn’t broadly curb the wildlife trade.

Dr. Li Wenliang was arrested:

Li and seven other whistleblowers were arrested for spreading rumors. Only last week, as the coronavirus outbreak kept 50 million Chinese people on lockdown and accelerated around the world, did authorities concede that Li and the others should not have been censured.

“It’s not so important to me if I’m vindicated or not,” Li, 34, said in an interview from a quarantine room with Chinese publication Caixin. “What’s more important is that everyone knows the truth.”

Dr. Wenliang was vindicated before his death from the virus in Wuhan last month. He died a hero.

Other doctors were targeted:

The next day, hospital leaders told Ai that Wuhan’s health commission had forbidden frontline medical workers from saying anything about the virus in a bid to avoid panic.

Ai said she was also censured by a hospital official, who accused her of “spreading rumors,” the Post reported. She was ordered to not speak about it even to her husband and to inform her staff members that they were not permitted to publicly disclose any information about the illness.


“How could I refrain from discussions with my medical colleagues knowing that a new and significant virus had emerged? I followed my intuition as a doctor so what mistakes did I make?” Ai wondered.

I relayed to you earlier (see here and here) how China used its power to bully the WHO into excluding Taiwan from international emergency meetings about the virus:

… On Wednesday, the World Health Organization (WHO) is convening an emergency committee of experts to assess whether the coronavirus outbreak that originated in Wuhan, China, constitutes an international crisis. But one of the countries affected, Taiwan, will not be represented.


But Taiwan is no longer able to attend the World Health Assembly, WHO’s annual policy meeting. China has prevented Taiwan from attending since 2016, after President Tsai Ing-wen was elected for the first time. Since her election, Beijing has stepped up its existing military and economic pressure on Taiwan, viewing Tsai’s pro-sovereignty status as a veil for Taiwanese independence.

This in addition to suppressing critical data and lying about their infected and fatalities. They also bought all the face masks:

Communist China took a page from the American left and their new propaganda is that it’s “racist” to note where the pandemic originated.

(The Uyghurs were not available for comment.) All of these people …

… began parroting communist China’s new talking point (and others). RedState makes a good point: Call it the Wuhan Coronavirus to honor those who gave their lives warning the public against communist China’s suppression.

Sadly, the partisan level of hate has evidently led some in media and politics to hate their own country simply because of who was elected to lead it. As of such, they feel that by boosting communist China’s absurd (and demonstrably debunked) claims they’re hurting Trump — when in reality they’re hurting the country they claim to love and her citizens. If only these reporters and politicos could show as much concern for the abuses of communist China against its own people and the pandemic they unleashed on the world (after warnings before SARS). If only China had acted earlier and not targeted its own people with greater force initially than it did this pandemic.
