Try as I might, I just can’t block last year out of my head. I’m going to need some sort of medically-induced coma to be able to pull that off. Rather than continuing the futile effort of avoiding it, I spend my time picking it apart, trying to see if I can pinpoint the exact moment that it all went awry. I’m writing a book that recaps the madness and it still seems as if I’m chronicling a bad dream. It couldn’t really have been that surreal, could it?
I keep checking, and I guess it was.
Despite four relentless years of the media lying intensely about him, Donald Trump was still poised to be re-elected as we headed into 2020. Then the infernal Wuhan Chinese Bat Flu hit and the Democrats immediately sniffed opportunity.
The centerpiece of their early attacks on Trump involved painting him — and by extension his supporters — as a RAAAAAACIST liar for suggesting that the coronavirus came from a lab in Wuhan. From there they built the house of lies that enabled the race to become close enough for them pull whatever shenanigans they did in November that got us to this point.
We entered a truly disturbing and bizarre phase where the American mainstream media was willing to take at face value any claims made by agents of the Chinese Communist Party, all the while rejecting and denigrating anything that was said by the president of the United States. It was a new low even for that group of professional bottom-dwellers.
As my colleagues over at Townhall noted yesterday, some in the media weren’t behaving like lapdogs for the CCP:
Throughout 2020, as the China virus spread across the globe, infecting millions and killing hundreds of thousands, Townhall reported on the latest information about COVID-19’s spread, President Trump’s plan to defeat it and his efforts to develop new treatments, and most importantly, reminded readers where the virus originated: Wuhan, China.
While Townhall reported on those questioning the lies coming from the Chinese communist government and the scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology about the coronavirus leaking from a lab, the left-wing media, Democrats, and Dr. Fauci bought into the Chinese Communist Party’s propaganda and anyone asking questions about a potential lab leak was labeled a conspiracy theorist.
Now, the Left and the Democrat Media Complex are changing their tune, saying that the lab leak theory has some credibility, but we were reporting the facts and real news first
PJ Media did as well.
There were also many of us who weren’t Fauci fans from the get-go. He looks more and more dodgy by the day now.
The pandemic was a godsend to Biden and the Democrat Media Complex knew it. It gave him a one-note campaign. He didn’t have to grasp and talk about complex policy issues. He had an excuse to abandon the rigors of a presidential campaign and stay home and make the occasional video appearance from his basement. All he had to do was bark, “Trump! Virus! Bad!” and DOCTOR Mommy Jill would let him get back to his Legos.
Dem-friendly media of both the mainstream and social variety went to work feverishly to make the magic happen for Drooling Joe. They continued to discredit Trump and his supporters whenever they told the truth about the virus. Facebook decided that it was in the business of deciding what was and was not truth. The platform began yanking any content that went against the approved Democratic pandemic narrative.
There’s been a bit of a shift on that front too:
On Wednesday, Facebook ended its ban on posts claiming that COVID-19 was man-made, a spokesman told Politico. Facebook had previously decreed that the man-made virus theory had been debunked.
“In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made from our apps,” Facebook said in a statement. “We’re continuing to work with health experts to keep pace with the evolving nature of the pandemic and regularly update our policies as new facts and trends emerge.”
The “new facts” line is rich. The facts were there in the beginning, they were just inconvenient for what Facebook was trying to achieve for Joe Biden.
It wasn’t just the truth about the plague that Zuckerberg and Company had to sweep under the rug. There was also the matter of Biden’s sleazebag cocaine freak son Hunter. When the really bad news about him broke late in the campaign, Zuckey, Dorsey, and the rest of the Hitler Youth began shutting down anyone who truthfully reported it. We were told that it was a nothingburger of a story and that Biden was the most innocent of lambs when it came to any of the Burisma stuff.
Initially, the Democrats disregarded the threat of the virus, using it instead to characterize Trump as a dictator as he moved quickly and decisively to confront the virus. It took them two months to retool their lies and, instead, depict Trump’s response as inadequate… even as they obstructed and denigrated every move.
Facebook has now decided they will no longer “fact check”, take down and ban members as “bullies” over posts about the virus possibly being man-made. You think they learned the lesson of the damage leftist censorship can cause? I doubt it.
We (us, here) all knew already that idiot Joe was Depends-deep in Hunter’s influence peddling. I’ll bet many others did, too… that’s why so much fraud was needed to put this lying, corrupt moron in office.
America has many enemies the United Nations and the Democrat Party are the worst of them
