The U.S. and countries around the world have locked down their economies – and the result is devastating.
Hundreds of millions of jobs have been lost worldwide as a result of these lockdowns, which have been initiated under the pretext of “public safety.”
Across the U.S., small businesses are getting crushed by overzealous bureaucrats who are hollowing out local economies with their hardheaded policies of unsustainable shutdowns with no end in sight.
You have most likely witnessed the devastation firsthand in your town or city.
Where did we ever get the bright idea that lockdowns were the best way to combat the Coronavirus, anyway?
Radical left governors such as California’s Gavin Newsom or New York’s Andrew Cuomo continue to preach the unassailable falsehood that lockdowns are the only way out of the pandemic.
Not only is this thinking wrong, but at what cost? The damage incurred by the lockdowns is even greater than the toll from allowing the economy to remain open.
It turns out that communist China is behind the lockdown craze. Red China has actively promoted the idea of lockdowns around the world with a sinister end squarely in mind: by crippling competing economies and freezing rival countries, China can rebound faster than ever and return to accumulating power in its dystopian quest for world domination.
Not only did China purposely unleash the virus upon the world and fail to warn other countries, but they then laughed all the way to the bank as they proceeded to sell countries in crisis faulty medical equipment and then encouraged those countries to commit economic suicide as China promoted lockdowns as the essential crisis management solution and watched them deteriorate into an economic recession as their businesses collapsed.
China is a communist authoritarian police state and the pinkos in Beijing knew that if free democratic countries around the world tried to copy their lockdown model that they would fail miserably.
This is because in free countries individuals have rights – such as freedom of speech, private property, and freedom of worship – which are in diametric conflict with any attempt by a totalitarian government issuing sweeping lockdown orders under the threat of jail or death, as the Chinese communists did when they locked down Hubei province, home to Wuhan, in February of 2020, with its 57 million residents.
Such a shutdown would almost certainly result in human rights violations and would be patently unconstitutional in the United States.
In March of 2020, the Chinese communists announced that their lockdown had completely eliminated domestic cases of COVID-19.
For a country with a population of 1.4 billion, this claim was a risible and utter bald-faced lie – but that didn’t stop failed and breathlessly corrupt news organizations like CNN or nanny state broadcasting outfits like the U.K.’s BBC from repeating China’s ridiculous claim and promoting to their own audiences the magical virtues of lockdowns.
In a February 24 report, the China-owned World Health Organization (WHO) blathered in an official report that “China’s uncompromising and rigorous use of non-pharmaceutical measures to contain transmission of the COVID-19 virus in multiple settings provides vital lessons for the global response.”
This official nonsense from the WHO resulted in scientists around the world immediately going to work to draft plans in many languages to imitate China’s lockdowns.
Always a paper to swallow Chinese communist propaganda whole, The New York Times chirped that “China took one of the most ancient strategies and rolled out of the most ambitious, agile and aggressive disease-containment efforts in history.”
Supporting this worldwide propaganda to promote lockdowns as the answer to the pandemic, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) paid hundreds of thousands of social media propagandists to post pro-lockdown messages.
Twitter and Facebook are bent on censoring conservative speech, but they are absent from regulating destructive Chinese propaganda.
In a move that makes any patriot’s blood boil and stomach sick when the State Department provided a sample of 250,000 accounts likely involved in coronavirus disinformation, Twitter refused to take action.
Just whose side are Silicon Valley companies on? It is increasingly clear that Silicon Valley’s hate for America is bleeding into outright treasonous behavior and they need to be punished – along with the Chinese communists who have pushed the world into an endless lockdown.
