China's virus solution: Lie, blame, rinse, repeat

Chinese Red Guards (B&W)As the China-born coronavirus continues to rip through much of the world, China’s authoritarian leaders claim they have completely stamped out the virus at the same time they continue to threaten the U.S. and its allies.

According to various media outlets, the Chinese Communist Party is busily continuing its propaganda war, from insisting the U.S. introduced the virus to Wuhan to inviting Chinese citizens back to their country on the claim the virus has been beaten thanks to the patriotic efforts of the CCP.

OneNewsNow has reported that China maintains U.S. soldiers brought the virus to an international competition in October despite claiming for months that the virus can be traced to an open market in Wuhan.

More recently, the communist-led government claimed it has stopped the virus is its homeland, with literally no new cases reported, a claim that was lauded by western media but considered propaganda by China’s critics including China’s own citizens.  

Maginnis

Bob Maginnis, a senior fellow for national security at the Family Research Council, says it’s easy to recognize the CCP’s tight grip on power when 50 million card-carrying party members control a country of 1.3 billion.   

“Now, will their own people do anything?” he asks rhetorically. “Well, keep in mind under Mao Tse-Tung he murdered 70 million people. So if they were to have an internal revolution, it would be a bloodbath to say the least.”

Thanks to social media website Twitter, one of the most high-profile critics of China’s regime is blogger Jennifer Zeng, a native of China who was once jailed and tortured in her home country. Among her recent posts:

*Chinese authorities are publicly criticizing Taiwan for donating medical masks to the U.S., calling that action “more poisonous than the virus”

*An uploaded video claims to show hospital staff refusing to accept a patient with coronavirus symptoms because the government claims there are no new cases

Corona virus bed*Citing an Epoch Times story, the death toll in China could be staggering since the number of cell phone users has dropped by 21 million since February.

When a reporter asked Zeng how the CCP benefits from the virus, she compared it to the 9-1-1 terrorist attack benefitting the terrorists who died, too.

“If the goal of the evil specter that controls the CCP is to destroy humanity,” she answered, “it won’t care whether they benefit or not, as long as its goal is achieved.”

Maginnis makes a similar observation to OneNewsNow.

“They aren't any better than Stalin was,” he warns. “I would argue that President Xi Jinping is just as bad as Mao Tse Tung when it comes to manipulating the population."
