Partisan DNC Attack Media Continues Shrieking That One Must Not Call a Chinese Flu a Chinese Flu; Twitter Censors Words "Chinese" and "Wuhan"

The newest Media Moral Panic which erupted on Twitter yesterday now infects another press conference:


Meanwhile, Twitter -- allegedly an American company which once declared itself to be "from the free speech wing of the free speech party" -- is busily censoring user posts to appease their Chinese friends and investors.


Why call it the Chinese flu? Gee, I don't know, maybe because China covered up the existence of the virus for critical weeks -- critical weeks in which infected Chinese nationals or travelers to China went all over the world like Johnny Appleseeds of the the plague.


Here's some of that article:

Chinese laboratories identified a mystery virus as a highly infectious new pathogen by late December last year, but they were ordered to stop tests, destroy samples and suppress the news, a Chinese media outlet has revealed.

A regional health official in Wuhan, centre of the outbreak, demanded the destruction of the lab samples that established the cause of unexplained viral pneumonia on January 1. China did not acknowledge there was human-to-human transmission until more than three weeks later.

The detailed revelations by Caixin Global, a respected independent publication, provide the clearest evidence yet of the scale of the cover-up in the crucial early weeks when the opportunity was lost to control the outbreak.

Censors have been rapidly deleting the report from the Chinese internet.

And the alleged "American" media are eagerly helping them suppress this news.

Why?

Who's paying them?

I'm not kidding: There will be hearings about foreign collusion, and specific reporters taking money for planted stories.

Let's end on a heartwarming note:

Quick, Steven Gutkowski -- speech patrol this guy for his racism!!!


Update: I'm told the Chinese Propaganda Whore who won't stop badgering Trump about the accurate term "Chinese Virus" is this SJW, Cecilia Vega:

OMG. The meltdown!

A friend just wrote, "Yeah, a Chinese bat."

139 This is a bat virus, not a China virus.


So hurtful.

100 Now, more than ever, the president needs my plan...

During this emergency, the people need to be assured that everything is going to be OK. People are panicked over their health and finances, so an answer needs to be found. This is a plan so drastic that it will work.

In order to distribute money during the emergency and to make the financial recovery the fastest in history, we need to lay out a path forward.

The U.S. has a tremendous amount of physical assets held by the government in violation of the Constitution. Land, mineral rights, fishing rights, air rights, offshore drilling rights, etc. along with incredibly valuable future rights like to fresh water. These assets, at a fair market value today, would be in the 75 to 100 trillion dollar range.

Of course, they couldn't be sold immediately because there just isn't that much money available. Also, to sell quickly would depress the price below fair market value. In order to accommodate the need for immediate case and long term value, a semi-governmental entity needs to be created charged with disposing of the assets over a 100 year term. Part of it's charter would be the ability to advance up to 60% of the current value to the federal government.

With this cash, the government would provide interim cash to help citizens and businesses during the crisis then immediately after it would do the following:

Pay off the National Debt
Pay off all private home mortgages
Pay off all student loans
Pay off all credit card debt
Offer senior to continue their Social Security or to buy it out for a lump sum.
Start universal catastrophic health coverage
Fund Health Savings Accounts for those that need it.
Start a 2 to 3 trillion dollar infrastructure project for all roads, bridges, water and sewage.
Fund 2 trillion for 500 identical 300 mw modular reactors to provide dispersed, free power (except for local delivery).

A total national reset.

134 The Chinese virus is the means, the financial panic and collapse are the end.

Those who have stirred up the panic have been told by their globalist masters to help stem the backlash against their Chinese benefactors and employers. Good luck with that. It is highly likely most exports from China will disappear within the next year or so.

As an aside, it is quite extraordinary to watch basically no one yielding to the demand not to call the Wuhan China Virus the Wuhan China Virus.

137 I don't fear the virus, I think we're going to beat that by May 1st. I *do* fear what's happening in the economy, and the reason for articulating that is to build support for Trump, when he says we are going to take on $1 or $2 trillion in new debt to save the economy. He's not wrong, and even that may not be enough. He's going to need support to get it done.

I think he has an opportunity to really cement his control over the country, but it won't be easy, and it will mean taking some very big risks.

Well, they invented it in an effort to produce an airborne version of HIV. Which wouldn't be terribly useful in wartime because AIDS takes too long to kill anyone.
It would very effective in a hostile 'peace' time if you unleashed it on a competitor in an attempt to stealthily run up the enemy society's healthcare costs and thus put them at economic disadvantage.

This is exactly the problem with being in debt: it limits your ability to respond to contingencies. When you're solvent, you have options. When you're in debt, your options become much more limited, and are generally more distasteful.

A Chinese bat that a Chinese market sold that a Chinese person ate. The disease took hold in China and then the disease spread and started killing people in China, and Chinese doctors started talking about it online and the Chinese government told them to STFU or die (or both, in some cases), and the Chinese government also allowed infected Chinese to travel to other parts of the globe, while the Chinese government pretended the highly contagious disease didn't exist, and presto . . . a global pandemic that has absolutely nothing to do with China or the Chinese!

Government reaction harm done to the economy and people's lives -- status? CERTAIN


Why are we preferring the certain to the uncertain? He made this point when he voted for Trump. He was certain what lay behind the Democrat door (demise of the country), but uncertain about Trump (meaning, he might turn out okay). QED

worldometer site is back again. What I notice is last week it said Mild Cases were 90%. Now they are 95%. So while the numbers of people getting it are going up so are the mild cases. How many of those people can either get cold/flu medicine and treat it themselves or get a prescription from a doctor to treat it and after a couple of weeks be over it?"

Basically all of them can treat it OTC. In fact, many of the "mild" cases--don't know the percentage but it's apparently high--don't even have symptoms to treat.

There has to be a reckoning for the media-driven financial collapse that rode this little virus all the way to Armageddon.

My take on this is that, in general, life does not have a plot. Something like this happens, and suddenly, life has a plot. People like having a plot. It provides a focus that going to work/school day in and day out just doesn't have.

I also think it would just cause a bigger loss when the markets reopoen. If people want to sell, they'll sell. If you create an "artificial scarcity" of opportunity to sell, they will "hoard selling," just as they hoarded TP.

Cooler heads will prevail and make a lot of money off hotter heads' panic.

Posted by: Tom Servo at March 18, 2020 02:34 PM (Kpl3J)



She wants to play competitive grief, let's play.

My late, lamented BFF was 39 years old when she died of cancer. It was about 7 weeks from her saying huh I have this flu I can't shake what's wrong to dead. And, sorry, Meggie Mac, but it is, in fact, more tragic for a 39 year old woman to die of cancer than an 81 year old man. Maybe not to you, but, if we are competing, then it is.

Now. Let's discuss St. Jude's. Most of the streamers I watch are involved in the various charity streams for St. Jude's and watching the video clips of parents discussing how at least they didn't have to worry about money while their 3 year old died of cancer is just utter gutting on every possible level.

You want to talk pain that no one should go through? A *child* dying of cancer is something that should never ever ever happen. Ever.

An 81 year old parent dying? Hey, mine are 82. I will be destroyed when they are gone. But they are 82. It's the way of things.

A seven year old going through 9 rounds of chemo and still losing the battle isn't.

Oh, she angers me.

And yes, you can usually tell the difference between Japanese, Chinese, Koreans and Viet Namese.

Koreans are usually huskier (S. Korea) because they are bigger naturally and now have much better nutrition. They are also generally a surly lot.

Japanese eat a lot of fish, and are usually not that husky or big (rarely taller than 5'10").
Viet Namese women are the most attractive. The Viet Namese are also usually pretty slender.

Chinese (Han) usually have somewhat flatter facial features. Southern Chinese are usually pretty small, Northern Chinese are taller.

ESPN has been talking the Bachelor and Masked Singer.



I love that the enormous flaw in their business model is laid bare,
that they produce nearly NOTHING, they just repackage and gab about
content others create. A fine platform for YouTubers, a poor platform
for a cable channel that charges $8 per subscriber per month.

Posted by: Nick in Tallahassee at March 18, 2020 02:46 PM (JRaU+)

The entire point of ESPN was that it was the 24-hour equivalent of the ABC Wide World of Sports. You never knew whether you were going to see Connecticut high school basketball or D-III hockey or minor league baseball. That's what made it great. When they went big time, big budget, and then more talk than sports, they lost me.

Washington Post reporters Erica Werner and Jeff Stein just broke a new story that means all Americans could be getting upwards of $2,000 instead of $1,000 as originally thought.

According to their report on TheHour.com, the White House wants to send two checks of $1,000 to every American to help them financially during this economic crunch.

She said we smell bad and have poor hygiene, and the example she gave was that Americans will get a haircut and then go back to work without taking a shower.

544 As long as we are the only reserve currency, and have the least effed up/insecure most vibrant financial markets - affirmative on both counts - we *can* print money and live stupidly (in a financial sense).

Of course the systemic risk grows apace, but - as long as the comparative legal/political risk of markets (including here real assets like real estate, not just financial markets) so strongly favor the US vs. all other major economies in the world - the game can (and will) go on.

It's not just scale. Though there have been some amazing pot-shots at our hard-won rule of law in finance (the bond lootings around the time the country demeaned and damaged itself by electing the non-entity from Chicago), overall - by comparison, all that matters - this feature remains unmatched by any major market country.

Think smart, successful South American businessmen, for generations, keeping a lot of assets and having property in Miami. Same-same, global scale.

554 I won't lie, when there are, say, 2 brunette women of similar build and face shape on a TV show, I sometimes have difficulty telling them apart. Which is confusing when it comes to crime/mystery shows. And I've lived around mostly white people for almost 2 decades.

It's basically like how Eskimos can identify dozens of flavors of snow but we can identify, maybe 4.

558 Everyone said the EU, more specially, the European Economic Community back in 1957 and everything that followed, would secure European peace for future generations.

I'm guessing the powers that be thought exploiting Chinese near slave labor for a generation or two would accomplish the same thing, enriching western elites while dragging Chinese peasants into the twentieth century.

Maybe it's time to wonder whether or not the smartest men in the room were wrong.

It's becoming more and more obvious that massive media conglomerates will not stop bending over backwards to appease the Communist Party of China until the Chinese literally yank away every last penny.

566 544 As long as we are the only reserve currency, and have the least effed up/insecure most vibrant financial markets - affirmative on both counts - we *can* print money and live stupidly (in a financial sense).

Of course the systemic risk grows apace, but - as long as the comparative legal/political risk of markets (including here real assets like real estate, not just financial markets) so strongly favor the US vs. all other major economies in the world - the game can (and will) go on.

It's not just scale. Though there have been some amazing pot-shots at our hard-won rule of law in finance (the bond lootings around the time the country demeaned and damaged itself by electing the non-entity from Chicago), overall - by comparison, all that matters - this feature remains unmatched by any major market country.

Think smart, successful South American businessmen, for generations, keeping a lot of assets and having property in Miami. Same-same, global scale.

She wants to play competitive grief, let's play.



My late, lamented BFF was 39 years old when she died of cancer. It
was about 7 weeks from her saying huh I have this flu I can't shake
what's wrong to dead. And, sorry, Meggie Mac, but it is, in fact, more
tragic for a 39 year old woman to die of cancer than an 81 year old man.
Maybe not to you, but, if we are competing, then it is.



Now. Let's discuss St. Jude's. Most of the streamers I watch are
involved in the various charity streams for St. Jude's and watching the
video clips of parents discussing how at least they didn't have to worry
about money while their 3 year old died of cancer is just utter gutting
on every possible level.



You want to talk pain that no one should go through? A *child*
dying of cancer is something that should never ever ever happen. Ever.




An 81 year old parent dying? Hey, mine are 82. I will be destroyed
when they are gone. But they are 82. It's the way of things.



A seven year old going through 9 rounds of chemo and still losing the battle isn't.

Can I play? I lost both my parents to dementia two years ago.. I got to see who they were fade away from me and then they passed away again on me.

They were both over 80..

/that aside.. Yes, it's awful but it happens and in their case, it was even a blessing to some degree.

588 "This did not come from bats.
It was released.
By the biotech facility IN WUHAN, CHINA."

afaik we don't know that for sure ... but even the stuff in their labs is often "from bats" ... they collect and test ... probably to see which would be effective as a weapon, maybe to use for vaccine type research. Several accounts indicate it did come from the lab though (even if origin of lab stuff is batty).


Regardless, they knew in December, yet sent their "Johnny Appleseeds" around the world distributing, silencing those that told the truth. That doctor, now the missing billionaire, a few others that reported from inside online, but then were disappeared.


So it was a deliberate act, quite likely an act of "war", unless they thought it would not spread ... but they knew pretty early it would spread. Truth has to win ... but as with covering for Billary selling nuke tech (90's) and Hillary selling uranium and weapons tech (Skolkovo deal) to Russia ... MFM completely flips the narrative to Trump/Russia for 3 effin years. WAR

626 When we reach a positive milestone in this "war on virus" Trump should say: "We've found the chink in this enemy's armor."

Koreans complaining about poor hygiene is rich. During the 1988, toilet
paper after a wipe had to be placed in trash cans rather than flushed
because of insufficient sewer capacity. It's still the case in many
places. I could go on.



Koreans actually are the most racist people on Earth, hands down.

Don't know if they still do it, but out in the country they used to save their sh*t on a frozen pile in the winter and use it for fertilizer in the spring.

628 These people really do not see themselves as Americans except for purposes of wearing the teeshirt. For progressives the United States of American is an address of convenience. Oscar Wilde still has the best take on what is today called "virtue signaling": "Hypocrisy is the tribute vice pays to virtue." The hypocrisy of the left is the price they must pay to virtue signal. They love making the people they hate obey progressive rules by force and they love taking money from totalitarian states like China. This in my opinion is at the heart of the protest culture of the left; base self interest masquerading as objective science.

I would tell him he's lost you as a patient. If you are willing to trust the dentist to not come into the office with a raging case of the WuFlu, then he should be willing to trust that you won't, either.

635 Cases of Wuhan, China, Chinese coronavirus, originating from a black bat, born and raised in China, continues to rise rapidly as US bans travel from China.
There, fixed it!

636 In my opinion referring to the Chinese Coronavirus as "Kung Flu" is probably a little better than referring to it as "Boomer Remover."

641 When these idiot propagandists can tell me why "Spanish flu" is not racist, then I will give a flying leap at a rolling donut about their virtue signalling, anti-Trump crap about calling this Wuhan flu.

All these propagandists should put their money where their pieholes are, fly to Wuhan, and eat a steaming bowl of batsoup.

645 All of this should be the main focus of Trump's second term.

Go after China for causing this epidemic, push to remove all manufacturing from their country and work on building deals with friendlier nations (Say build important things in Mexico, as it'll help them get jobs and keep them from flooding the border. If companies get angry remind them of the money we just gave them and how they're putting the country at risk.) Also find a way to forcefully remove them from our stock market, possibly keeping their shares in the US treasury as a way to pay for this problem they caused.

Secondly look into those in the media who have connections to China who have posing their party line. See if these companies have been taking orders from the Chinese, who own major portions of their business, and if so hold then accountable for some of the problems or force them to sell to others/ remove those here who pushed the Pro-China message.

As many have pointed out, what China did is an act of war. At best they ignored telling countries that the virus was already coming their way, at worst they actively sent people overseas knowing it would cause this. We can't fight China in a traditional way, but we should try to work hard to remove them from all our dealings, isolate them and try to destroy them.

Now is the best time as with stocks already going down, and things probably getting worse this won't be as bad of a hit as if we do it after the recovery. But odds are Trump needs to wait till after his re-election because if not our Pro-China media will probably work even harder to stop his reelection through even more underhanded means.
