You would think that at the time of dealing with a pandemic, Democrats first concern might be the American people.
But Democrats are intent upon attacking President Donald Trump while seemingly going out of their way to defend China.
China has a tremendous amount to answer for when this is all done. They lied for months, destroyed the laboratory evidence of the disease. Punished doctors who dared to speak up. Disappeared journalists who dared report on it (and we still don’t know where those folks are). Lied to WHO about the contagious nature of the virus as late as mid-January.
Now they are attacking the United States, blaming us for the virus, suggesting our military infected them with it, even threatening to withhold medications if we continue to point the finger at their cover-up.
It’s right to call it a “Chinese Virus” as even media did when this started because when this is all over, we need to hold the CCP accountable and we must not forgot it. It’s not racist, it has nothing to do with the people and everything to do with the origin of where it started and the government.
A new Chinese coronavirus, a cousin of the SARS virus, has infected more than 200 people since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December. Scientist Leo Poon, who first decoded the virus, thinks it likely started in an animal and spread to humans. https://t.co/mnZKFC5ZDW

But how are Democrats responding? Providing pure propaganda for the Chinese.
The presumptive nominee for the Democrats suggested restricting travel from China was “xenophobia,” has claimed China isn’t a threat and his chief aide claimed the “Chinese virus” was a “racial slur” (although she wasn’t able to explain why). Even in March, Biden claimed restricting travel wasn’t effective.
Hillary Clinton even was quoted and praised by the Chinese in their propaganda war for her comments.
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday critiqued President Donald Trump's recent usage of "Chinese Virus" to refer to the #COVID19 as "racist rhetoric," which is an attempt to eclipse his poor response in curbing the virus outbreak. https://t.co/Yu07UjCzbi pic.twitter.com/V4ZV9zb2ho

Now comes House Intel Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA) toting their water. Does that concern anyone in addition to all his other issues that he’s the head of the House Intel Committee and doesn’t seem to care he’s harming America and helping the Chinese effort?
We need to bring people together to fight Coronavirus.
Blaming China may seem like good politics, but it doesn’t solve anything, or mitigate the Trump Administration’s failures.
Calling it the “Chinese virus” only breeds disunity, discrimination and division.

“We need to bring people together to fight Coronavirus,” he said. Then he immediately attacked Trump. “Blaming China may seem like good politics, but it doesn’t solve anything, or mitigate the Trump Administration’s failures. Calling it the “Chinese virus” only breeds disunity, discrimination and division. Enough already.”
Um, they covered it up for at least two months, destroyed lab evidence, punished doctors and journalists who dared speak out and spread false information to the world about the virus through the WHO saying it wasn’t contagious. They have an organized campaign on right now to deflect blame and attack the U.S. but that matters not to Schiff. Not blaming China is excusing their responsibility to the world and to the United States for what they have done. According to one study, if they had not lied, it could have saved 95% of the cases. There is a legal/political reckoning coming which Schiff is literally undercutting.
But notice how while he says we shouldn’t be “blaming China” because that “breeds disunity,” it’s perfectly fine to blame Trump for his “failures.” Because that isn’t “breeding division,” right? Does this guy even read the head-spinning twists in logic he puts out? All this guy does is breed division.
