GOOD: Australia to China: Don’t Push Us on COVID-19, Mate.

Okay, okay, fine. If you want to get all nitpicky, COVID-19 isn’t the Chinese virus. It’s merely the latest Chinese virus. Any number of deadly pandemics have emanated from China for thousands of years, and it will keep on happening as long as the Chinese allow it to happen. But you’re not supposed to say that, because China is full of Chinese people and therefore criticizing them is racist. You’re supposed to ignore facts. You mustn’t tell the truth about why you’re out of a job and worried about getting sick and dying. If you do, your moral, ethical, and intellectual betters will call you names, which they will also do for any other reason.

But not everyone is cowed by China. Not our friends down under, certainly.

And neither should we be. China is weak and vulnerable. That’s why they’re blustering, and it’s why we should tell the truth, and put the boot in.

Jim Treacher certainly does here:

China is pulling a neat trick here:

Unleash deadly plague on the world

Lie about it, destroy evidence, and silence whistleblowers

Threaten to boycott anybody who correctly blames you for hundreds of thousands of deaths and global economic ruin

And why not? Why wouldn’t they keep doing what they’re doing? China’s friends in the “American” press are more than happy to help. They pass along the Chinese government’s lies without any hint of skepticism, and try to shame anyone who doesn’t happily whistle the same tune as we’re marched to the abbatoir. Maybe these “journalists” have been bought off. Maybe they’ve been coerced. Maybe they just hate America. Maybe it’s all three. Whatever the case, they don’t care about their audience. They work for China now.

Hey, journalists: Tired of being called enemies of the people? Maybe stop being enemies of the people.
