People’s Propaganda Pushers
It’s clear, China covered up and lied about Corona in its early stages. Secretary of State Pompeo is now acknowledging that the Chinese government continues to withhold information. Secretary Pompeo, on the Washington Watch radio program, rightly accused the Chinese government of having “truly put thousands of lives at risk.” China has been engaged in a cover-up since the beginning of this global pandemic, which started in Wuhan, China.
Now Chinese officials are accusing America of having started the virus. President Trump refers to the virus as the Chinese virus due to its geographical origins. According to Secretary Pompeo from a Breitbart article:
“My concern is:that this cover-up, this disinformation that the Chinese Communist Party is engaged in, is still denying the world the information it needs so that we can prevent further cases or something like this from recurring again.“Secretary of State Mike Pompeo
For the vice of telling the truth, Secretary Pompeo incurred the wrath of the Chinese media. Again, acording to Breitbart.com, a Chinese Communist propaganda outlet called Pompeo‘s comments “morally irresponsible“, “ridiculous” and “rude”. It went on to say “Pompeo’s move not only exposes malicious U.S. intentions toward China without regard to common sense, but also hits a new low in his personal conduct.” Coming from a nation of human rights violations going back to 1949, this doesn’t have a lot of gravitas.
