Chinese-State Made Puts Out Facebook Ads Scapegoating President Trump for the Wuhan Virus

Published

According to a report from Breitbart, Chinese state media has swamped Facebook and Instagram with political ads blaming President Donald Trump for the Wuhan Virus.

Facebook claimed in a statement that this was an “error” and that the ads were not labeled as political and is subsequently correcting them.

According to a report from the Telegraph, the Chinese state media has been publishing undisclosed political ads to Facebook and Instagram as part of an effort to downplay China’s role in the Wuhan Virus pandemic and attack President Donald Trump. Three prominent Chinese state media outlets, Xinhua, China Central Television, and the Global Times, have launched targeted ads directed towards users globally in English, Chinese, and Arabic.

The ads have reportedly been viewed by millions of users and praise China’s efforts to fight the Wuhan Virus while whitewashing the country’s domestic outbreak. The articles depict President Trump as misguided and racist and even hint at the virus originating in the United States. “[China] has taken stringent and forceful measures, and turned the tide on coronavirus,” one ad stated. Another asserted: “Trump’s disruption to China has severe consequences.”

All of the ads went live without a political disclaimer, thus allowing them to cover up information about who the ads were targeting and where they were coming from. Several of the articles gave a particular focus on President Trump’s use of the term “Chinese virus” to describe the Wuhan Virus. Other ads covered statements coming from Chinese president Xi Jinping.

The Telegraph contacted Facebook about the ads. The social media network responded by saying that it was an error that the ads were not classified as political. Since this dialogue, Facebook has corrected the issue. A spokesperson also noted that a large number of the ads are being run in countries where Facebook does not mandate disclosure, thus making it hard to figure out the degree of propaganda perhaps went unnoticed on the site.

The Facebook spokesperson informed the Telegraph that it opted to label media outlets rather than banning them because it prefers increased transparency. The spokesperson called attention to how all Facebook’s services must abide by local laws and that those who break its policies can face temporary bans.

Social media will soon have to make a choice about how it deals with China.

The East Asian country is known for its authoritarianism and its geopolitical ambitions that will undermine the West.

If social media outlets truly cared about free speech, they would completely disassociate with the Chinese market.

Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation

Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.

If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.

Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional. 

AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.

In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.

At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”

In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.” 

Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”

According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”

When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”

Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
