China Virus is a Russian talking point. Just my best guess.

Trump is working for Putin and to that end Putin wants America ripped apart along
social, ethnic, religious, and political lines. Remember the NFL Players Kneeling
"dust up?" Russia was behind that and although I might be wrong I smell Trump's
Vlad Daddy all over this "China Virus" crap.


Russia deploying coronavirus disinformation to sow panic in West, EU document says

WORLD NEWS MARCH 18, 2020 / 5:28 AM / UPDATED 2 HOURS AGO

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Russian media have deployed a “significant disinformation campaign” against the West to worsen the impact of the coronavirus, generate panic and sow distrust, according to a European Union document seen by Reuters.

The Kremlin denied the allegations on Wednesday, saying they were unfounded and lacked common sense.

The EU document said the Russian campaign, pushing fake news online in English, Spanish, Italian, German and French, uses contradictory, confusing and malicious reports to make it harder for the EU to communicate its response to the pandemic.

“A significant disinformation campaign by Russian state media and pro-Kremlin outlets regarding COVID-19 is ongoing,” said the nine-page internal document, dated March 16, using the name of the disease that can be caused by the coronavirus.

1. Republicans are obedient little puppets

They've sold their souls, and sold out America.

5. China virus is just racist/bigoted crud. But, as bungling and incompetent a leader trump has proven,

I don't think we earn many points trying to tie the virus, itself, to him. I do get the point, though.

Now ads showing his stupid and racist responses and mistakes, are fair game.

6. He singlehandedly allowed it to spread in the US

by his total failures over the last 2 months.

8. He fucked up testing for sure and is a poor spokesman as far as reassuring people. But, if he'd done

everything right, we'd still have a lot of people with the disease and more coming as it spreads.

If trump personally cured the disease by developing a vaccine in his bathroom and gave it for free, I'd still vote against him -- and fellow GOPers -- just for his being racist pigs. But, I just don't think we gain points by calling it the trump virus. Now blaming shortages, more early deaths than necessary, poorly coordinated response, etc., on him is OK, he deserves it.

9. We would have some, but not as many

The "flatten the curve" concept doesn't work when we are essentially a porus border internationally, did nothing domestically, and even 2 months later no/very few tests.

7. What we need is a nursery rhyme. Trump Flu might be easier to work with.

Trump Flu In
Trump Flu Out
People Died
There's No Doubt

Along those lines

11. The Russian (and former Soviet) government are superb in sowing bigotry.

Pick a group and there are often ties going right back to the Russian/Soviet government. Talk about a cabal hell-bent on world domination/destruction, they are the epitome of it. Gays, Jews (especially Jews), Japanese, capitalists/socialists, and the list goes on.
