The federal government has had to publicly reverse course very quickly now that the Wuhan “lab leak theory” has gained steam in the last couple of weeks. It’s as if they stumbled upon what a countless number of doctors and scientists said in 2020 concerning the Chinese coronavirus, which they were ironically banned from social media for saying.
Now, it seems as though nothing is out of the realm of possibility when it comes to COVID-19.
During Wednesday White House press briefing, Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked about whether the intelligence community (IC) has “ruled out” that China didn’t deliberately unleash the virus on the rest of the world.
“The language that you all used, specifically mentioned an ‘accident,’ does that mean that you’ve ruled out — or the IC has ruled out — that it was deliberate or not an accident?” one reporter asked.
“We haven’t ruled out anything yet,” Jean-Pierre responded. “Again, we’re going to go through this re-doubling down of this 90-day review, and we’ll have more to share.”
But wait, I thought it was racist and xenophobic to place any kind of blame for the virus at the feet the communist Chinese government or China in general? That's why, if you noticed in the video above, they didn't mention China during that exchange once.
Was it racist when “Chinese virologist whistleblower” Dr. Li-Meng Yan spoke to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last September and told the host that the Chinese government “intentionally” released the virus on the rest of the world and that it was “man-made?”
Possibly, since Twitter had suspended Yan’s account because of her claims. And as we all know, activist social media organizations totally allow the truth on their platforms.
