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”.
Cleveland Indians are Joining in the PC Radicalism by Discussing a Name Change
Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.
The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.
“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.
The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”
“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”
In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.
The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.
The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
