I have to admit that I’m predisposed to agreeing with this guy:
The US State Department’s former lead investigator who oversaw the COVID-19 task force into the origins of the virus believes SARS-CoV-2 escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology
Why am I predisposed to agreeing? Because that’s what I’ve thought all along.
Let’s see. We have a coronavirus that originated in bats appear in a city…ostensibly in a “wet market”…that just by coincidence happens to house a research lab that specializes in studying coronaviruses and specifically had recently been studying bat viruses, and the lab happens to be right down the street from the “wet market” that the outbreak is blamed on?
As Joe Biden would say C’mon man!
I was born at night, but it wasn’t last night.
Of COURSE it came from the lab. You’d have to be an idiot or member of the media (redundancy alert) to believe otherwise. And I’d say the other half of the guy’s opinion is very likely right on the money too…that the virus:
may have been the product of bioweapons research, according to Fox News.
“But, but but” the media sputters “that’s OUTRAGEOUS to make such a claim without any evidence.”
In 2016…a Chinese state television commentator claimed: “We have entered into an area of Chinese biowarfare, and including using things like viruses. I mean, they made a public statement to their people that this is a new priority under the Xi national security policy,” according to Asher.
If that’s true, and it should be easily verifiable (at least by the government, I’m sure all record of it has been purged from the internet by now), I’d call that a pretty big red flag. Sort of like how the police react when they find out you said you were going to kill someone shortly before they turned up dead. Maybe not enough for a conviction, but definitely enough to make you the prime suspect. You’d better have an airtight alibi.
Your alibi is the market right down the road? Seriously? Pull my other leg.
I have to wonder if that explains why our fearless leaders went from “hug a Chinese person today” to “let’s shut down the world” within the span of about a week? I’m wondering if intelligence briefings containing the words “biological warfare” got their attention?
At any rate, the one thing I don’t wonder about is the origin of the virus. You don’t have to be a genius to put this together: A virology lab that specializes in coronavirus research and was specifically studying bat viruses just happens to be within a few hundred yards of the epicenter of an outbreak of a strain of coronavirus that originated in bats. The math here is not that difficult for anyone above the IQ of the average MSM “news” reader; which if my calculations are correct, is slightly above that of your typical lemming.
