Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lijian Zhao is patting himself on the back for China’s response to the Wuhan Flu.
On Twitter, he stated “3. Chinese spox: Countries like Singapore, ROK took necessary measures & put the epidemics under control because they made full use of this precious time China bought for the world. As for whether US availed itself of this window, I believe the fact is witnessed by US &the world.”

This provoked a response from conservative commentator Kurt Schlichter.
He tweeted, “The liberal media is parroting the propaganda of its communist masters.”

What Schlichter is referring to is embodied in an article by the New York Times writer Ian Johnson titled “China Bought the West Time. The West Squandered It”
Johnson praised China for being more proactive while the U.S. and other countries were more “reactive”:
…..the attitude toward the coronavirus outbreak in the United States and much of Europe has been bizarrely reactive, if not outright passive — or that the governments in those regions have let pass their best chance to contain the virus’s spread. Having seen a kind of initial denial play out already in China, I feel a sense of déjà vu. But while China had to contend with a nasty, sudden surprise, governments in the West have been on notice for weeks.
However, China expert Gordon Chang argues that China should not be trusted when it comes to the numbers of deaths related to the Wuhan Flu. The country is already known for its secrecy and censorship.
In addition, the Chinese government has censored much coverage of what’s taking place in the country and there is still speculation about what truly took place in Wuhan.
Nevertheless, the Trump administration has taken rational measures like banning travel to China, while his Democrat opponents yammer on about open borders and “racism.” In the globalist era, countries with questionable health infrastructure like China can easily “export” their illnesses via frequent travel. Hence, the need for strong borders and strict controls on who can enter countries.
The level of Trump Derangement Syndrome has gotten so bad that leftists will use Chinese Communist Party narratives to try to criticize Trump and undermine his agenda.
That’s where we’re at in 2020.
Marco Rubio Believes “Boogaloo” Groups are Responsible for Leftist Mayhem Sweeping Across the Country
Like clockwork, Florida Senator Marco Rubio is advancing mainstream media narratives during the current wave of rioting taking place across the nation.
On May 30, 2020, Rubio tweeted “News networks missing a big story In city after city we have a rogues gallery of terrorists from Antifa to “Boogaloo” groups encouraging & committing violence They may not be ideologically compatible but share a hatred of govt & police & are taking advantage of the protests.”

Indeed, Antifa and leftist groups adjacent to their cause have exploited protests to engage in flagrantly criminal acts such as looting and rioting.
However, the mentioning of “Boogaloo” groups is laughable.
First off, talk of “Boogalo” is done in jest and only confined to the Internet.
It has not manifested itself in a coherent form as far as physical politics is concerned.
Secondly, right wing protesters have behaved themselves peacefully in the last few months.
The same cannot be said about Antifa and its leftist cohorts.
It would behoove Rubio to get the facts straight and take the Left exclusively to task for this mayhem.
The media is already trying to change the narrative by blaming the riots on “white supremacists” and far right groups.
It makes sense for elected officials on the Right to get the facts straight and not fall for media disinformation.
For establishment figures like Rubio, this may be too much to ask for.
