It's Wrong

It's interesting to think back to April and May of 2020, when the previous president suggested that China was culpable for what he called the "China Virus" and further suggested that the virus had its origin in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The media and the Democratic masters became apoplectic. Their shrill condemnation of those assertions were quickly transformed into the prevailing narrative. For almost a year afterward, not only was any claim supporting Trump's assertion literally censored (e.g., by Facebook), it was also derided as "debunked" or "a ridiculous conspiracy theory" by the propaganda media (e.g., The NYT or WaPo).

But in May of this year, for reasons that are not yet apparent, the purveyors of the false COVID-19 narrative backed off, and all of a sudden, a discussion of Chins'a culpability became acceptable. It's curious, is it not?

It might be that a false narrative (the bread of butter of woke ideology) does not age well, and as a consequence, those who supported the narrative (think: Dr. Fauci) wanted to get out ahead of the the narrative's demise. Maybe they hoped that they wouldn't look like the fools that they are. Or maybe it's a wheels-with-wheels thing—who knows?

But the narrative is falling apart—rapidly. Eileen Connelly reports:

A bombshell new study claims to have proof that Chinese scientists created COVID-19 in a lab and then tried to reverse-engineer versions of the virus to make it look like it evolved naturally from bats.

British professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen wrote they’ve had primary evidence “of retro-engineering in China” since last year, but were ignored by academics and major medical journals, the Daily Mail reported Saturday, citing the soon-to-be-published study.

The study concludes: “the likelihood of it being the result of natural processes is very small.” 

... It was during their COVID-19 vaccine research that the pair came across “unique fingerprints” indicating the virus didn’t come from nature, they said. The telltale clue: a rare finding in the COVID-carrying virus of a row of four amino acids, which give off a positive charge and bond to negative human cells.

“The laws of physics mean that you cannot have four positively charged amino acids in a row,” Dalgleish told the Daily Mail. “The only way you can get this is if you artificially manufacture it.”

They also tracked published Chinese research, some done working with American universities, to show how the tools to create the virus were allegedly built. A good part of the work reviewed involved “gain of function” research, which involves manipulating natural viruses in a lab to make them more infectious, allowing scientists to study their potential effect on humans.

Hmmm. This work dovetails nicely with earlier scientific investigations that are now shredding the false COVID origin narrative that was enthusiastically supported because ... Trump. 

And yet, the media is not held accountable for suppressing legitimate inquiry in the case of the virus' originals while they ask the public to ignore analogous evidence in other matters of national consequence using the same gaslighting and smear techniques to suppress inquiry.

It's wrong. It's dangerous. And it makes them—to quote a guy who they truly hate—"... enemies of the American people."
