The revoltingly liberal and stupid CNN lauded what it called the “unintended benefit” of blue skies and “good quality air days” because factories and streets were empty across China’s Hubei province. And the equally worthless USA Today had this headline: “Could the coronavirus actually be saving lives in some parts of the world because of reduced pollution?” According to Marshall Burke of Stanford University, the answer is yes. He wrote that “the reductions in air pollution in China caused by this economic disruption likely saved 20 times more lives in China than have currently been lost due to infection with the virus in that country.” People reading this nonsense just assume it’s true because, after all, “he’s from Stanford.” But there is simply no way he is able to know this with any degree of certainty.
A radical feminist Communist, Sophie Lewis, who describes herself as “a freelance writer interested in queer communism, based in Philadelphia”, wrote an article for a far-left publication funded in part by super-Socialist and one-worlder George Soros, in which she stated that one good thing which could come from the coronavirus “pandemic” could be the total elimination of the family unit! She stated: “We deserve better than the family. And the time of corona is an excellent time to practice abolishing it.” Such evil is simply breathtaking, but she is not alone in these loony left doctrines – such people hate the family unit and want to see it destroyed. For the family is the God-created unit upon which civilisation itself is built – and these people want a new world, where the State replaces the parents and controls the lives of all, especially children.
Lewis wrote, “the private family qua mode of social reproduction still, frankly, sucks”, for the family “genders, nationalizes and races us” (these people can’t even use English correctly, and they expect us to trust them to have the solutions to the world’s problems?) “It norms us for productive work. It makes us believe we are ‘individuals.’” Here’s news for this woman: we are individuals. We are not merely statistics for the State to manipulate. It would be too easy to dismiss such rantings as the fevered productions of unhinged minds, but they are calculated assaults. And they are listened to and believed by millions today.
No wonder the world is falling apart.
And then we have Barack Obama’s own version of leftist lunacy.
The Socialist/Communist, Islam-loving former US president just couldn’t help himself, we suppose. He just had to connect the virus to one of his pet myths – “climate change” – even though those not inhabiting the Obama parallel universe would see any connection at all. He claimed the virus was a result of denials about so-called “man-made climate change”! “We’ve seen all too terribly the consequences of those who denied warnings of a pandemic. We can’t afford any more consequences of climate denial.”
No comment needed.
Voices of Dissent Ignored
As I have been saying from the very beginning, this is a storm in a teacup, a deliberately-orchestrated global panic over something that is only life-threatening to a minuscule number of the world’s population. Even if millions eventually fall ill, only a small percentage of those millions will actually die.
Various expert voices have been raised against the whole thing – but, as with issues like the myth of “climate change”, the liberal and Socialist-dominated media pays no attention to voices of reason, and continues to propagate the lie that this is a threat to humanity’s very existence.
A top Israeli virologist, Professor Jihad Bishara, urged world leaders to calm their citizens, saying people were being whipped up into unnecessary panic. Bishara, a director of the Infectious Disease Unit at Petah Tikvah’s Beilinson Hospital, said that the virus is not airborne; most infected people will recover without even knowing they were sick; and the global panic is unnecessary and exaggerated.
“I’ve been in this business for 30 years,” he said. “I’ve been through MERS, SARS, Ebola, the first Gulf war and the second, and I don’t recall anything like this. There’s unnecessary, exaggerated panic. We have to calm people down. People are thinking that there’s a kind of virus, it’s in the air, it’s going to attack every one of us, and whoever is attacked is going to die. That’s not the way it is at all. It’s not in the air. Not everyone [who is infected] dies; most of them will get better and won’t even know they were sick, or will have a bit of mucus.” He added, “we’re talking about a virus that is not airborne. Infection is via droplet transmission…. Only if you are close to someone who has the virus, and you get the saliva when he sneezes or coughs, can you get ill.”
But has anyone paid any attention to scientists such as this man? No. They continue to swallow the “official” line.
In late March a study from Harvard University and the University of Hong Kong found that the coronavirus might have a lower fatality rate than originally suggested. According to the World Health Organisation’, 3.4% would die from the virus; but this study stated that only 1.4% of people who contracted the virus in Wuhan, China – the epicentre of the disease – died from it. “As of 29 February 2020 there were 79,394 confirmed cases and 2,838 deaths from COVID-19 in mainland China. Of these, 48,557 cases and 2,169 deaths occurred in the epicenter, Wuhan,” the paper’s abstract read. Older patients in Wuhan had an estimated 2.7% risk of dying from the virus, and for those between 15 and 64 the estimated risk of death was only 0.5%.
But of course, the world in panic continues to trust the United Nations and other globalists for their information.
Information contradicting the “official” line keeps appearing – but then either disappears or is swamped by other, more sensational stuff on the virus. All of this is deliberate.
