The SJW Media Continues Repeating the Absurd Propaganda of Their Chinese Communist Allies, While Ignoring Science

Don't these people "Believe in Science"?

Before "Believe all women," they were constantly shrieking about how much they "believe in Science," which, to them, means "Liking" a picture of a galaxy on FaceBook.

So here's this SJW, shrieking that a Republican dared to mention Chinese food practices as a reason that fresh plagues keep coming out of China:

Oooh, hiss!

By the way, this little incel was retweeted by another reliable SJW simp, Rob George.

You know who disagrees with these two sissyladies?


Believe it or not -- the leftwing joke site Vox disagrees with them.

John Sexton links their explainer video, stating:

Coronavirus, like SARS before it, originated in China because of a specific set of conditions created under Chinese law. As the Vox video below explains, these bat viruses keep making their way into human populations in China because China has “wet markets” for wildlife animals where bats, pangolins and other live animals are kept close together in confined spaces. This allows deadly viruses to spread between species that, in the wild, would probably rarely encounter one another.

So it’s true this virus, having made the jump to humans, could now infect anyone. The virus itself isn’t Chinese. But this pandemic is the result of conditions created by China, conditions which have already created and spread one previous deadly virus. This wasn’t random. This is a distinctly Chinese problem. Not to mention that when Chinese officials initially uncovered this virus, they actively covered it up for nearly a month while it spread.

This isn't new. A 2007 paper in the Clinical Microbiology Review called the Chinese practice of shacking up exotic animals with each other a "time bomb:"

But let's protect the feelings of the Chinese Communist Government and protect them from any pressure to stop keeping live animals of different species cheek-by-jowl with each other.

Hey, a few million dead is a small price to play for protecting a Tiny Minority's precious cultural norms.

Especially when the "Tiny Majority" is the most numerous racial group on earth-- a near-majority of the earth's population.

But they're not white, so therefore: Tiny Minority which must be protected.

Meanwhile, the media can't help flacking for the Chinese Communist Government that their corporations have a lot of business with:


Hey Cato, Koch, AEI, and CEI -- why don't you assholes call your China Lobby paymasters and write up a White Paper which will explain to us rubes how many plagues, and how many tens of thousands dead, we're supposed to gladly accept just so your checks keep comin'?

More: The Federalist has a good article about The Atlantic magazine's endless shilling for its Pacific overlords.

It's not that they eat weird animals, it's that they keep them all in squalid conditions living next to each other in a way that could never happen in the wild.

103 Maybe Cornyn - about whom I have never heard anything good anyway - beclowned himself a bit here?

MERS = Middle East Respiratory Syndrome

Swine flu = origin in Mexico/Central America

But just a packaging error. China has long been the source for most flu viruses, the principal one, I think. So his point stands, and of course the specific aggravating factors here (the bad market practices, and especially the government failures and lying and interference with normal international response) are the main point.

The head and neck, actually. It's in the video of the girl eating the bat in Wuhan. She's trying to chew on the wings, which are really leathery, and the dude filming her says "Not the wings, idiot! The head!"

130 His name was Dr. Li Wenliang


On 30 December he sent a message to fellow doctors in a chat group
warning them about the outbreak and advising they wear protective
clothing to avoid infection.
What Dr Li didn't know then was that the disease that had been discovered was an entirely new coronavirus.














Four days later he was summoned to the Public
Security Bureau where he was told to sign a letter. In the letter he was
accused of "making false comments" that had "severely disturbed the
social order".
"We solemnly warn you: If you keep being stubborn,
with such impertinence, and continue this illegal activity, you will be
brought to justice - is that understood?" Underneath in Dr Li's
handwriting is written: "Yes, I do."
He was one of eight people who police said were being investigated for "spreading rumours".



"killed by coronavirus"


He was healthy and 34 yrs old.

Hipsters in SF occasionally think it's cool to go over to Chinatown and get "Tiger Penis Wine" (sold under the counter at Chinese herbal medicine shops) to drink at their white hipster parties. Or at least they did until vegan-shamed by other hipsters.

The Chinese have absolutely no compunction about killing the last tiger in the world solely to cut of its dick, soak it in disgusting rice wine, and then drinking the wine to cure their impotence. No problem whatsoever.

163 On my first trip to China in 1980, the country had just opened up. We were in what must have been the best restaurant in Shanghai when a one-wheeled, lawnmower engine powered vehicle with a cart showed up. Half of a cow carcass was dragged through the dining room and into the kitchen. My wife opted for just rice that day.

On my last trip, I ate at a French restaurant in Tianjin. Some of the best goose liver pate I've ever had.

Of course, just down the road they eat stuff we've never heard of. But then again, I've seen some meals in West Virginia that I wasn't too sure of.

204 His name was Dr. Li Wenliang



On 30 December he sent a message to fellow doctors in a chat group

warning them about the outbreak and advising they wear protective

clothing to avoid infection. What Dr Li didn't know then was that the disease that had been discovered was an entirely new coronavirus.


Four days later he was summoned to the Public
Security Bureau where he was told to sign a letter. In the letter he was
accused of "making false comments" that had "severely disturbed the
social order".
"We solemnly warn you: If you keep being stubborn,
with such impertinence, and continue this illegal activity, you will be

brought to justice - is that understood?" Underneath in Dr Li's

handwriting is written: "Yes, I do." He was one of eight people who police said were being investigated for "spreading rumours".

212 163 On my first trip to China in 1980, the country had just opened up. We were in what must have been the best restaurant in Shanghai when a one-wheeled, lawnmower engine powered vehicle with a cart showed up. Half of a cow carcass was dragged through the dining room and into the kitchen. My wife opted for just rice that day.
Posted by: jwest


I went to China about 20 years ago -- wayyy out in the bookdocks -- and would often pass restaurants that had stacks of cages out front. In the cages were housecats, puppies, and weird mysterious weasel-type animals, possibly civets or mink.

At first, I was so naive that I didn't understand what I was seeing. I thought here were just pet-adoption markets in front of the restaurants.

But then I saw a customer come out, point at a cage, and a waiter picked it up and took it into the kitchen.

Vegetarian for the rest of the trip (and for the rest of my life, actually).

In my experience with Chinese folks, the complete lack of anything approaching Western or Judeo-Christian morals or ethics drives most decisions.

At no point in their history has China ever valued the individual in any way. When you treat people like cattle, some will become predators and some will become prey. There are no objective limits upon behavior. Mao was not an outlier in history. He was the product of it. If he had to murder millions to keep power, then he did. He didn't lose sleep over the murders.

Same is true of how they have handled this virus. Lie, cheat, steal, murder, abuse citizens, all in the name of keeping the ruling class in power, not in protecting citizens or doing the right thing. It simply is not their culture to care for anyone, so it is everyone for themself.

223 Intel agencies would be the ones to try to ferret out info concealed by the Chinese govt., but they wouldn't be lead on pandemic topics. CDC and int'l outfits they're tied into have their own networks, that's their job. Intel looks at public health issues of course but in most of the world/most of the time that is open-source, and again there are entire agencies whose job it is to track that.

Actual question would be if CDC did not respond properly/in a timely fashion. Of course most here have well formed conclusions on that but of course have not the slightest idea or understanding of the subject. Maybe there will be a serious look-back at those questions. Maybe.

My grandfather used to tell me about hunting and eating squirrel when he was a kid, but then he was a poor farm boy in the country, during the Great Depression. For him and his family, shooting some squirrel was a way to get at lease some meat in their stew.

It's amazing how far we've come in a couple generations. For him, the concept of "going to the store" involved a 15 mile walk, one way, unless he could get someone to let him tie a horse up to the wagon so he could ride. Yeah, it was the 30's, but they were much too poor for a car.

I was just reading. This thing is getting worse in the UK. They are a little ahead of us on the curve.

And it's getting dire in Italy. The mortality rate is increasing because of the rationing. If you're over 70, no hospital for you. You're left to die.

Now, we're got our own potential Italy, and that's the huge retiree population in Florida. Now, one hopes that the warmer climate there may help.

But anyway, I'm seeing what has put the fear of God in our authorities, and why they're going so draconian.

I was watching the Surgeon General earlier. The guy is trying his best to be optimistic and confident, but I can see he's shitting his pants.

Sure, and look how China treats them. As a threat. Because they are. They understand the precious value of the human soul, something which the Chinese have never done before.

So, they end up in organ donation programs against their will, because to China, people are a commodity, just like everything else.

murder millions to keep power, then he did. He didn't lose sleep over
the murders.

Not to quibble, but he said SARS was back. That was probably the keyword that they latched onto when monitoring his chat. And their initial reaction was that it was a lie to say "SARS was back". I think that is why they came down so hard on the PR front that it not be called SARS-II. They must have felt that that would make it obvious that it was avoidable.

I think separately there was a panic in the CCP, with them knowing that it was possible (or likely) out of the lab so they were coming down on the labs and scientists.

There has been a slow trickle of information about how bad the labs were run, how much bio weapons research they were doing, and how much the CCP knew in Dec., which it tried to hide.

309 It's interesting how science gets interpreted in a time of mass hysteria. For example, the hot buzz a couple of days ago was that SARS-CoV-2 (the new coronavirus) lasts REALLY, REALLY LONG on stainless steel and plastic surfaces. Actually what the study (published in the NEJM) found was that the stability of SARS-CoV-2 on those surfaces--up to 72 hours--resembled the most closely related human coronavirus, which is SARS-CoV-1. So the two SARS coronaviruses resemble each other in stability. But the other coronaviruses--the ones that cause colds and have been around forever--last for 4-5 days on hard surfaces and under some conditions up to nine. This suggests that the stability of the SARS viruses may actually be lower than common coronaviruses. But somehow this otherwise comforting information gets turned upside down.

A couple of years ago, Chinese immigrants up here went dipnetting and took well over their portion of the salmon run. Instead of cleaning them and returning the guts to the river like they are supposed to, they took them elsewhere so they wouldn't get caught by the Troopers for taking so many. They dumped a several hundred pound load of fish guts at the base of a hiking trail just south of Anchorage on the only highway, right where a grizzly bear had attacked a young runner earlier that spring.

I'm sure it bothered them not at all, until the Trooper figured out who had done it and locked their asses up.

I would have made them clean up the mess with their tongues and a toothbrush, but that's just me. Put everyone in danger so they could cheat and steal.

I'd shoot them, but can't rely on the bleeding heart neighbors to not report me. So I've got to be pretty stealthy with an air rifle. They're a bit too skittish to catch down in the yard, so if I blow one off of the fence I can't risk it landing on somebody else's property or fine and jail time.

But, if I were a bum, or an illegal, it's all fine.

345 >>I believe it was the lab workers who do a thriving business selling test animals for food.

It gets even worse - there was an incident with bats last year and many workers had to be isolated. This was in Chinese news, but it did not say if they were sick, or why they were isolated. It is possible that that incident was the initial source.

The next question is what were the bats infected with? Sounds like it was an experimental lab created virus since otherwise how would they even know to isolate after being bit by bats?

352 You can tell who is making it political by who is changing the way things are always done. We always name these outbreaks after their origin points.

There is a good faith argument to make for changing that (although the public would ignore it) but they aren't making that argument. They are asserting that it is racist without the decency to point out that either it was always racist, or it has never been. They are pretending it is uniquely racist this time because it is a convenient cudgel for them given they have no substantive criticisms to make.

TDS sufferers ALWAYS make stylistic complaints.

This is because they are shallow and unprincipled.

you cannot force the entire population of the USA to "shelter in place"

you can suggest it of course, you can suggest it strenuously

you can "force" it for a set period of time that is SHORT and defined

and you can protect those most at risk

what we're doing is HORRENDOUS precedent and frankly terrifying. by now we were supposed to have a lot more deaths - I'm glad we don't! very glad. and am ok with the 15 day isolation across the board. but no more than that. or this country will die. I mean it will be no more.

I'd agree, it's very important to jump on this early and keep the initial transmission rates as low as possible. Unfortunately it's painful for a lot of good people but it beats what happened/is happening in China and Italy when the COVID-19 case loads got out of control.

Original Source is John Burn-Murdoch of the Financial Times, a link to his work is available on the page I linked.

-------

A new study from the National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University has found that the virus which causes COVID-19, or coronavirus, is stable for several hours on a variety of objects and in aerosols.

According to a post on the NIH website, researches found that the germs can live on contaminated surfaces for hours and are similar to the SARS virus.
...

The novel coronavirus stays viable in the air for several hours and can last on surfaces from hours to days, depending on the material, according to a study published Tuesday in the New England Journal of Medicine.

What's new: Researchers said the virus that causes COVID-19 remains infectious in the air for up to three hours, on copper for up to four hours, on cardboard for up to 24 hours, and on plastic and stainless steel for up to three days.

It gets even worse - there was an incident with bats last year and many workers had to be isolated. This was in Chinese news, but it did not say if they were sick, or why they were isolated. It is possible that that incident was the initial source.

The next question is what were the bats infected with? Sounds like it was an experimental lab created virus since otherwise how would they even know to isolate after being bit by bats?

__________________________

Want to bet that they took a few samples to the Wuhan BioLab for experimentation? I think this virus was a work in progress, they were making it more transmissible first,
by making it capable of airborne transmission, and
by making it capable of being spread prior to symptoms appearing

Then they were going to increase its virulence and fatality rates.

It escaped the lab, and into Wuhan China before the last step was completed, otherwise we would be seeing massive fatalities from this disease. G

495 446, artisanal ette'

The roughness of the surface at the microscopic area is one of the things that determines persistence of the virus. Cloth, wood natural finish (not polyurethaned), and so forth, virus does not last as long.
Really worried about it, uv from sunlight kills the stuff pretty quickly as does heating it up to 150 F. I suspect a steam cleaner would work but no confirmation on that and it depends on the steam's temp. A heat gun would probably fry it but you might blow it around first with that so not recommended.

Major thing on cross contamination is to clean hard slick surfaces, open your packages outside and leave the boxes etc. out there, wash your clothes when you have been outside around other people, wash your hands before you touch your face/nose etc.

Hygiene is extremely important as preventing cross contamination as the infections rise from things that are preventable like shipping packaging, touching door handles without a tissue or gloves, etc.

And if they think the water might be cut off, and don't have access to other fluids, like milk.

It's weird.

making it more transmissible first,

by making it capable of airborne transmission, and

by making it capable of being spread prior to symptoms appearing



Then they were going to increase its virulence and fatality rates.



It escaped the lab, and into Wuhan China before the last step was
completed, otherwise we would be seeing massive fatalities from this
disease.

See the "rice on the chessboard" parable. Or it may have been wheat originally. Lilly pads on the pond is another one.

BTW, only the initial phase of an epidemic curve is exponential. Only while the number of infected is an insignificant fraction of the total population. Once it becomes appreciable, it slows down.

And when you get to the more sophisticated models, that take into account spatial spread of the population, and the stochastic nature of transmission dynamics, even that initial exponential becomes a polynomial.

It's a high exponent, and close, but not the real cigar.

If you have cloth, they are easy to wash.

Some people have those plastic vinyl ones.

People should use the cloth ones like any clothing. Use a handful to shop, toss them in the wash. I have so many bags that I can do at least 3-4 runs with washed ones before washing them. And I never put meat packaging in them without using those produce plastic bags to wrap them in first. If I am buying a lot of meat or a big turkey or something, I grab one of their bags.

But mostly, I refuse to pay for my damn bags at the store. I do not remember how much they charge, but it is bs. I am mad for the surcharge on plastic drink containers too. We pay upfront and have to bring them back for the money exchange. Which we don't do. I toss them in the recycle bin. So may fees tacked on just to go grocery shopping. Sick of it.

And we do not get a discount for packing our own bags.

I agree with you, always have. Probably the only difference is that I expect the world to be absurd and irrational at all of the most crucial moments. It's always happened in the past. This would be a good time for anyone to read Nick Taleb's book "The Black Swan", because THIS is what a Black Swan looks like.

To boil down Taleb's main thesis, it was that we think human history progresses in a linear and logical fashion, but in fact a look at history shows that all of the most crucial moments in history were brought about by what he labeled "Black Swans" (explanation for that in his book), and that these events actually happen far more often than we think.

A "Black Swan", as Taleb describes it, is an event, or series of events, that no one in the world thought possible before it happened, and yet which happens and radically transforms the entire world in ways which were unthinkable before. We're now seeing a complete paradigm reset from where we were just a couple weeks ago. I think we will eventually recover and remake our society, but we are not ever going back the way things were. Those days are gone, new days are coming.

What's new: Researchers said the virus that causes COVID-19 remains infectious in the air for up to three hours, on copper for up to four hours, on cardboard for up to 24 hours, and on plastic and stainless steel for up to three days.
Posted by: artisanal 'ette


That information is not new, it's at least two weeks old, as discussed by the Dr. Osterholm on Rogan's show. The secondary confirmation is new. Wuhan virus travels by breathing alone and lives in the air for three hours. It's a virus so it flies right through masks except for the best of them. How exactly is anyone not going to be infected? We will all get it eventually.

So the question is then, what do we do about it? If we let everyone get infected (the herd immunity argument) we assume that 1) it cannot reinfect (which is questionable at this point) and 2) the spike will happen anyway. The only thing we get from lockdown is a potential flattening of the spike for critical care beds, which is plainly a death sentence for older infected people.

Make sure you have a lot of Gatorade or Pedialyte in the house. You will need it if you get the Wuhan Pneumonia or any of the other dozen conventional illnesses.

560 This would be a good time for anyone to read Nick Taleb's book "The Black Swan", because THIS is what a Black Swan looks like.

I am gonna read this.

562 Had to go to California DMV to get license renewed, no more mailing it in.

OMG they were severely enforcing social distancing. The surly clerk was at least 6 feet away from the counter as she told/ordered me to give her my papers. Then told/ordered me to go to the wall as she looked at my papers. It was insane bu the good was I got in and out in about 30 minutes. So there is finally a W for the Chinese Flu and AIDS Lung disease.
Also funny was there were four Asian people, could have been Chinese where the Chinese Flu and AIDS Lung disease originated. All of them had masks on and they were the only ones in a crowd of 50.

563 I'm worried China will come out of this stronger
because they'll be back to business as usual while the rest of the world
is still dealing with their virus. They got hammered before anyone
else, they'll be recovered before anyone else.



Or will they? Did they shit the bed so badly with this that they guaranteed the failure of their economic and military goals?

By occupation and training I cannot be irrational, I see the numbers, I look at historical analogues and compare that to the bug fuck insanity I'm witnessing and it staggers me.


And the fact that there is a substantial portion of people going along with this madness is stunning.

566 You need to go back to math class and learn how exponential functions work. The Babylonians knew it so there's no excuse for you.

Here's why I don't find that convincing: My understanding is that diseases generally do not expand exponentially indefinitely. So you need more of a model than just saying "exponent" to justify sweeping measures.

And even if you think sweeping measures must be taken, you need to have some kind of model that tells you how sweeping. You don't want to be destroying livelihoods and diminishing personal freedoms more than is necessary.

568 So, there are more Chinese than us, they have "more power" than us, but it's racist for us to criticize them?

That must mean that "racism" is demanding that white's feel guilty all the time.

570 >> My understanding is that diseases generally do not expand exponentially indefinitely

Only the initial phase when the infected number is an insignificant fraction of the total population. The R0 parameter determines that initial exponent.

Once the infected and recovered become significant fractions of the population, it slows down, then peaks, and tails off.

Much more sophisticated models show even the initial exponential is not really that, but just a polynomial of a high power.

572 Societal evolution demands that these practices be stopped immediately, by any means necessary.

Diplomacy and stern requests have not worked.

They need help with this persistent problem that threatens the world. Just hope it does nott crack the door open a bit more for the Anti-Christ. But, in many expert opinions, Biblical eschatology says that is inevitable anyway. Perhaps this is another sign of the season.

Sure relying on Newton and his supposed not before 2060 calculations here.

574 How is it racist? How?

It started in China.

It was either an engineered bioweapon or it came from the wet markets.

Noting that is NOT RACIST.

575 I am not saying that it is aliens and a super complex agenda orchestrated to usher in a new reality, because it is extra dimensional beings working a geopolitical and historic Rubics cube that is just a few flicks away from showing solids on all sides.

576 Unfortunately China is a peasant society in the midst of modernization, with all of the usual gross-out backwardness that implies. Its misfortune is that the modernizing agent is the CCP, which is still struggling with the problem today. My mother was never shy to point out the difference in ordinary crowd behavior seen in the United States vs. Hong Kong, where she grew up (and HK is of course already in a different category). I think the modernization question isn't settled and presents an opportunity for the western ethos, but who knows whether things will line up. Certainly there doesn't seem to be much in the way of viable local cultural allies to choose from, as between wet markets and Party despotism. It is likely beyond the reach of "policy" anyway.

As to Ace's original post, I am an American of Chinese ethnic extraction and of course have no problem with describing COVID-19 as the Wuhan virus, the Chinese virus, or whatever. Honestly I could do without the "slant-eyed, small-dicked, bat-eater" sort of ripostes, but I understand that those are really more about upping the ante in the SJW culture wars than the much-dreaded "backlash" the MSM will claim it to be. And in any event, a pluralistic society requires some level of good humor and thick skin, which is endangered online but still seems to prevail in real life.

577 There were pigeons flying all around the place and landing all around us which kind of put me off my feed. My customer, who had eaten there before, told me they didn't have a a menu and they only served one entree per meal.

Guess what the entree was?

578 Deplorable Unperson,

One of the goals of bio warfare is to engineer the pathogen so that the initial carriers not only transmit while asymptomatic, but that a huge percentage of all of those who recover from what are shown to be mild cases during the initial onset relapse and succumb some 30 plus days after first presenting the, if any, mild symptoms.

Contagious the whole time.

I don’t think this is the case here, but that is a goal of bio weapons.

Only way that is viable for implementing desperate and inretractible attack of this nature is if there is a vaccine of some sort or even more well planned and reliable engineering.

I am in the not happening camp.

Reaction from Trump indicates a better safe than sorry approach. I agree with that damned if we do damned if we do not always do no choice but to do logic.

Unless it was aliens.
