There are plenty of things we still don’t know about COVID-19, but there are two things we know for sure. First, we know that the virus originated in communist China. Second, we know these communists were lying to the rest of the world from the very beginning of this crisis. Because they underreported the scope of the outbreak, the Chinese communists left the rest of the world completely unprepared to deal with the devastation that followed. Viruses like COVID-19 spread exponentially. If the Chinese had been upfront from the start, there’s no telling how many lives would have been saved or how much loss could have been prevented.
I know it sounds cliche, but we can’t forget that China is run by Godless communists. We can’t expect them to care about property, freedom, or human lives. That’s not what communists do. That’s the fundamental difference between the values of America and the values of the Chinese Communist Party. If anyone thinks we can go back to just getting along with China after all this, they are kidding themselves. We are officially in the Second Cold War. The only way this goes is we win and they lose. It’s the world versus China right now and we have to choose a side.
Just like the first Cold War, it’s freedom versus tyranny. We’ve turned a blind eye to the Chinese dirty tricks too long, and COVID-19 proves that there’s no way to isolate their tyranny. We can’t say “You can persecute your people, just don’t bother us over here.” As long as China lets viruses like COVID-19 spread freely, their tyranny is a threat to every American from California to South Carolina.
This is no time to be bashful about the challenge ahead of us. We need bold action to handle a bold threat like China. We need someone who isn’t afraid to flex the power of the United States in the defense of our citizens and our interests. Don’t be fooled by how the left-wing media spins this. The Second Cold War is very real. The worst thing we can do in this crucial moment is ignore it.
