Man she’s really pushing the worlds shit in. Numerous countries sheltering in place, economies on fire, jobless rates soaring. pic.twitter.com/MGmUgTmvni— Mister AntiBully (@MisterAntiBully) April 10, 2020
I laughed about this one for 20 solid minutes:
This is the best one of all:
The conspiracies are getting more complex.
If you don’t believe in the conspiracy, then you must be part of the conspiracy. All of these conspiracies are just ass covering from people who didn’t take the virus seriously until it was too late.
In reality, there is a highly infectious, moderately lethal novel coronavirus that jumped from a bat to a pangolin to a human in China that has developed into a global pandemic, which every country in the world is dealing with at the moment. It produces a SARS-like disease that destroys the respiratory system. This event has been expected to happen for nearly 20 years now. It has been simulated half a dozen times by the U.S. military and at least three times (SPARS Pandemic, Clade X, Crimson Contagion) since Donald Trump became president. This was a known threat like a hurricane or earthquake.
As I pointed out yesterday, Mongolia has defeated the coronavirus by closing its borders, shutting down international flights and rail traffic, closing schools and public events and through mandatory quarantines of anyone entering the country. Taiwan has also defeated the coronavirus. It warned the WHO about human-to-human transmission of the virus in Wuhan in December. Taiwan screened passengers of incoming flights from China and defeated the virus with quarantines and testing. North Korea has no confirmed cases of coronavirus after closing its borders.
Vietnam is the most instructive case of all: 257 cases, 154 recovered, 0 deaths. The first confirmed case of coronavirus was reported in Vietnam on January 23. The first confirmed case in the United States was on January 20. Unlike the United States under Donald Trump, Vietnam took the coronavirus seriously from the beginning of the outbreak and defeated the virus through a similar combination of quarantines, lockdowns, school closures and testing. Vietnam suspended inbound international flights and has entered into a period of national isolation. Americans are STILL free to return to the United States from hot zones. 430,000 people traveled to the United States from China since the coronavirus surfaced including 40,000 Americans who returned to the United States AFTER Trump’s travel ban.
In the United States, Americans were free to travel abroad to hot zones like China, Italy and Iran, hop on a plane and fly back home. In New York, a woman who had traveled to Iran brought the virus back and became the first confirmed case there on March 1. No one even bothered to do basic contact tracing of the people she had contact with on the flight and at the airport. Foreigners from Asia were astounded in February that there was minimal screening for the virus at American airports.
It doesn’t take a conspiracy to explain why 469,464 Americans have been infected with coronavirus and 16,711 Americans have died of the disease since the beginning of March while only 257 people have been infected and 0 people have died in Vietnam. This devastating result is solely the product of fatal arrogance, stupidity, complacency and incompetence and could have been prevented with simple, common sense measures like shutting down international flights or at least quarantining passengers until testing could be developed for the virus. It would have “spooked the markets” though to do this.
Donald Trump sided with the conservatives in his administration in February who advised him to “ride it out” and treat it as “just the flu.” Their plan was to just let x number of people die and write it off as the flu rather than to take the slightest precautions. Contrast the response of American conservatives on FOX News with what was airing on North Korean state television in February.
I’m ready for the conspiracy theorists in the comments to explain how Mongolia, North Korea, Vietnam and Taiwan all managed to contain and defeat the virus. South Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore have also managed to contain their outbreaks. How does this fit into the HOAX? Why is the American political class trying to look so incompetent on the world stage?
