PROPAGANDA: Chinese Government Spokesman Suggests US Military Planted Virus in Wuhan

Published

on

A Chinese official is peddling a conspiracy theory that the U.S. Army may have planted the deadly Wuhan Flu in China, without providing any evidence for his bold claim.

Zhao Lijian, a foreign ministry spokesman, pushed this theory on Twitter on Thursday, March 12, 2020.  This statement mirrors similar conspiracy theories being spread on Chinese social media that blame the United States for the pandemic.

The head of China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention has announced that the source of the virus was wild animals sold at a market in the city of Wuhan.

However, in recent days, Chinese officials and a leading health expert have asserted that the virus may have had a different point of origin as the Chinese government has criticized US officials for dubbing the disease the “Wuhan virus”.

Zhao tweeted a video of the head of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention giving a testimony before Congress detailing how some Americans who allegedly died from the flu were posthumously diagnosed with the Wuhan Flu.

“CDC was caught on the spot. When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals?” Zhao tweeted.

“It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!”

Chinese officials have faced accusations of attempting to cover up the outbreak as police in Wuhan cracked down on and silenced doctors who had voiced concerns about the virus as early as December.

American officials have ticked off China by associating the virus with the country. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has called it the “Wuhan virus”.

The foreign ministry has repudiated the term and believes it is “despicable” and “disrespecting science”.

US National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien asserted on Wednesday that the origin of the virus was China.

“This virus did not originate in the United States, it originated in Wuhan,” O’Brien said while giving a speech at the Heritage Foundation think tank.

“Unfortunately, rather than using best practices, this outbreak in Wuhan was covered up,” he sustained.

He argued that China had “cost the world community two months to respond” to the epidemic, which has now claimed the lives of 5,000 people and infected more than 130,000 across the globe.

If China had been more cooperative and allowed foreign experts to enter the country, he maintained, “we could have dramatically curtailed what happened both in China and what is now happening across the world”.

Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang described O’Brien’s remarks as “extremely immoral and also irresponsible” on Thursday.  He claimed that China’s strict quarantine measures to keep a lid on the virus had won the world “hard-won precious time”.

Greg Abbott Signs Executive Order Keeping Violent Criminals from Going Back on the Streets During the Wuhan Crisis

Published

on

After the Wuhan Virus was confirmed in several Texas jails in the last week, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order on March 29, 2020 that makes it more difficult for several inmates to be let out on “no-cost, personal recognizance bonds.”

Abbott tweeted, “Today I issued an Executive Order preventing [email protected] of dangerous criminals from prisons & jails. We want to prevent the spread of #COVID19 among prison staff & inmates. But, releasing dangerous criminals in the streets is not the solution. #txlege #coronavirus

Several cases of the Wuhan Virus were discovered in the Dallas County Jail and Harris County Jail last week, two of the state’s largest jails. In addition, a handful of cases were confirmed in state prisons. According to NBC DFW, the virus’ outbreak was “followed by demands to reduce the inmate populations by releasing, immediately and without bond or judicial delay, those held on misdemeanor crimes or awaiting trial on misdemeanor crimes. Some also called for non-violent felons to also be released on no-cost bonds.”

Abbott said Sunday that “releasing dangerous criminals makes the state even less safe” and issued a proclamation to prevent judges, and others, from releasing some inmates without a paid, cash bond.

In his executive order, Abbott declared that a person convicted of a crime that involved or threatened physical violence, or a person arrested for such a crime backed by probable cause, or a person with a criminal history of violent crime, cannot get out of jail on a no-cost personal recognizance bond.

With a PR bond, a defendant is released without having to post any money for his or her bond on the promise they’ll show up to their next court date.

Instead of virtue signaling and buying into the criminal justice reform movement’s desire to foment anarcho-tyranny, Abbott has held his ground by promoting public order.

A crisis like the Wuhan Virus pandemic does not need to be exacerbated by opening up the prison floodgates.

This is one case where American policymakers should use logic not emotion to craft prison policies in times of a pandemic.

Failure to do so will put the U.S. on the road to institutional failure.
