Commies Gotta Commie
As we discussed in last Wednesday’s Briefing, the already awful American mainstream media has managed to become even more irresponsible since the coronavirus took center stage in America’s collective stay-at-home consciousness. Every day, they find new ways to reinforce the “Enemy of People” status that they have been earning every day in the Trump era.
They’ve routinely scolded anyone who accurately refers to the virus as being of Chinese origin, screaming “RACISM!” as if they were getting paid each time they uttered or typed the word.
What has been most insidious has been the parroting of whatever China reports about the virus. Almost everyone in American media has been acting as ChiCom public relations lackeys, taking everything that the Chinese government says and passing it along without questioning any of it.
Victoria wrote yesterday about a new report that confirms what sane people have known all along: the Chinese commies were lying along. They were lying about the total number of coronavirus cases and they were lying about the total number of deaths. This obviously would have had an impact on the response of other nations.
Stephen Green and I did a live chat for our VIP Gold members yesterday and we were asked what we thought about retaliation against China after all of this. The one thing that I’ve been saying privately for a few weeks is that I hope we emerge from all of this with the clear realization that our relationship with China has to change. We can no longer cozy up to them because they play that weird, hybrid capitalist/communist game of theirs.
China is still a totalitarian communist monster and should be viewed as a threat to the United States, not an exotic business partner. The U.S. military has long viewed it as such, it’s time for the rest of us to get on board.
A healthy distrust of any kind of relationship with China should be the bare minimum takeaway from all of this.
A healthy distrust of any American media types who carry water for the ChiComs would be the perfect place for all of that to begin.
