COVID-19 – reconsidering the evidence

To the Editor,

With the coronavirus pandemic in full swing, it is time to question our politicians, most specifically the Democrats, fighting for “benefits”, including abortion that have nothing to do with helping people during this pandemic. Never, in my observations, has there been such an effort to capitalize on such a catastrophe to push socialist/-communist ideals, when all it is seeking to do is control people and destroy economies, especially this country and what it stands for. Every effort has been made by the media and politicians on the left to hide China’s role in this pandemic. What does the left have against the truth? Has this pandemic not shown us China’s real feelings toward humanity? Who in their right mind would play the “humane” card while threatening to withhold medicine? Does this pandemic not teach us that we, as a nation, need to be self-sufficient?

One aspect of gross deception that is not addressed, or is conveniently denied, by the left is the potential that the virus originated from a Chinese lab. Potential indication for this is given in a preprint of an article by Xiao and Xiao (February; DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.2.21799.29601) titled “The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.” Interestingly, while reference to the paper can still be found on the web, the ResearchGate webpage of the scientist who uploaded the paper is no longer accessible.

In this paper the authors address the suspicious origin of the virus from the Huanan Seafood Market, stating that bats which carry the virus strain are found 560 miles away, too far for them to have flown, and that the bat is not “a food source in the city, and no bat was traded in the market.” They additionally indicate that within 300 yards from the market is the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention. They proceed to address the research conducted there on several hundred bats, how the expert in the study publicly claimed to have been personally attacked by bats, had been in contact with bat blood and urine, and had quarantined himself because he “knew the extreme danger of the infection.” Additionally, the contaminated trash is present close to the market and adjacent to Union Hospital, which is “where the first group of doctors were infected during this pandemic”.

Are we going to be blind to the truth? Do we care about this country? Or are we happy to give it up to socialism/communism and the enemies within? Socialism/communism’s true face is seen in the Chinese government’s response to this outbreak, how it dealt with its people, with those who exposed the danger, and how it lied to the international community. Socialism/communism is destructive, has failed in every country and its goal is to manipulate “social justice” to control people. It’s about time that Americans took heed of this reality and made it clear that it is not welcome. Many of us gave up our native countries to escape this evil. Do we want it here?
