Back when it was politically expedient for China to not receive the blame for Covid-19, some of the loudest voices in the scientific community did their best to shut down any investigation into the true origins of the global virus. Anthony Fauci proclaimed that all the “evidence” pointed to a natural origin to the virus, not a man-made one. CNN shouted then that “Anthony Fauci just crushed Donald Trump’s theory on the origins of the coronavirus.” It boasted that the “world-renowned infectious disease expert” Fauci had debunked Trump.
“The back-and-forth over where the virus originated—and how—is simply the latest example of how Trump seeks to shape reality to fit his predetermined conclusion,” CNN declared. CNN pretended that the real problem was that Trump and his supporters do not accept science, even though nothing could be further from the truth.
Medical journals and the media continued to demonize anyone who might suggest that Covid was man-made, even calling them “conspiracy theorists.” Lancet printed articles marginalizing anyone who suggests that there was a man-made origin of this virus, allowing name-calling against their hypotheses.
Then a few months ago Fauci himself began to backtrack from his prior adamant denials of a man-made origin to Covid. On September 17, Lancet finally published candid research debunking the liberals’ insistence on a wildlife origin. As the team of scientists behind the research wrote, “There is so far no scientifically validated evidence that directly supports a natural origin…. “Although considerable evidence supports the natural origins of other outbreaks direct evidence for a natural origin for SARS-CoV-2 is missing, after 19 months of investigations, the proximal progenitor of SARS-CoV-2 is still lacking.”
As to the “no evidence” mantra that Fauci and other liberal scientists are so fond of repeating, the reality is that their own statements pretending there was a natural origin were without evidence. This is why we don’t want Chinese ties to our scientists, our media, or our politicians. How can we connect ourselves to lying communists and not assume that they will corrupt us as well? Honest pursuit of truth requires a complete separation from the controlling influences of China.
