Pieces to the Puzzle
Washington, DC, May 28, 2021
Deceit and disinformation. That’s what China has given us since Day #1 concerning the origins of COVID-19 and the now infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Do you remember how quickly the pandemic was blamed on people eating bats from a wet market in Wuhan, China? It wasn’t long after the world first heard about COVID-19 that Chinese authorities conveniently announced that bat hors d'oeuvres were the culprit. Almost immediately it was reported as fact. Proclaimed as the truth.
Around this time last year, anyone who dared to publicly wonder (A) how China was miraculously able to blame bats so quickly, or (B) whether other factors may have also played a role… those people were vilified as conspiracy theorists and often SHUT DOWN.
For example, Facebook had a policy to remove posts asserting that COVID-19 could have been man-made. Twitter routinely blocks accounts for far less. YouTube often takes down videos that contradict “health authorities.” (Never mind that messaging from health authorities changes regularly.)
Oh but now we’re learning, thanks to the investigative reporting of the Wall Street Journal and others, that there’s likely more to the story. Nothing that eliminates bats as an original source, but instead evidence that questions if the virus could have possibly escaped from the Wuhan lab studying COVID infections in bats.
It’s all circumstantial pieces to the puzzle that should have been investigated over a year ago. And probably would have been had immature, righteous censorship not shut down this discussion at every turn. It’d be naïve to believe we’re going to get anywhere with communist China on this issue now.
