What?! Bloomberg Op-Ed Calls for China to Reopen Infamous Wet Markets

Eat the bat, bigot.

In what could only be called the most bizarre of takes, Bloomberg’s David Fickling is lauding China for reopening the infamous wet markets from which the coronavirus is thought to have originated from.

The piece, titled ‘China is Reopening its Wet Markets. That’s Good,’ argues that the wet markets offer ‘clean, fresh produce’ and a valid alternative to traditional grocery and food stores.

Political figures from across the world have been calling for China to finally meaningfully ban the markets. A wet food market in Wuhan is suspected as the place of origin for the Chinese coronavirus. Many scientists believe that a virus common to bats was passed to a pangolin(an anteater-like creature) and adapted to a form that made it transmissible to humans.

Fickling argues that the exotic wildlife trade represents only a small share of commerce at the infamous wet markets, where live animals from vastly differing categories of the animal kingdom are kept in close proximity and slaughtered for human consumption.

Fickling makes an utterly reaching claim that China’s wet food markets are concisely analogous to western farmer’s markets. When have you ever seen animals like bats or pangolins for sale- let alone offered live- at your local farmer’s market?

He claims that only a “small minority” of wet food markets offer exotic animals such as bats as pangolins. But it appears that it only took a single interaction between the two animals for an extant virus to adapt to a new form that made it not only transmissible to humans, but poised to create the greatest international health pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu.

The opinion piece largely appears to be a reactionary elitist dismissal of the populist demands for China to eliminate a scientifically veritably dangerous biological threat to mankind. We can’t merely take the risk that these markets are going to clean up their act, considering that the next epidemic to emerge from the dangerous markets could prove to be even more lethal than the Wuhan coronavirus.

OPINION: For the Sake of Mankind, End China’s Wet Food Markets. End Them Now.

As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen

Right on cue.

Published

With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.

For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”

This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.

Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”

On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”

“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.

And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.

The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
