COVID was set upon the world thanks to a leak from a Chinese lab, a fact that is finally coming out and proving what has been called a “conspiracy theory” since the beginning.
According to a new report by the Daily Mail, so-called scientists have admitted that the decision to claim that the lab leak theory was a “conspiracy theory” was all political, not based on facts.
Per the Mail:
Internal Slack communications obtained by a House subcommittee investigating the early days of the pandemic showed how scientists who wrote a paper dismissing the idea of a lab accident feared retribution from the Chinese government.
Dr Andrew Rambaut, a biologist at the University of Edinburgh, was a co-author of the March 2020 Nature Medicine research article titled ‘The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2′ which denounced believers of the lab leak theory as conspiracy theorists and racists.
Private messages show Dr Rambaut feared pinning the blame on China for ‘even accidental release’ of the virus would cause a geopolitical ‘s*** show’, and so he was ‘content with ascribing it to natural process.’
One respondent to that message was Dr Kristian Andersen, a Danish evolutionary biologist and co-author of the paper, who said in response that he ‘totally agree[s] that that’s a very reasonable conclusion’, adding: ‘Although I hate when politics is injected into science – but it’s impossible not to, especially given the circumstances.’
The notorious proximal origin paper was partly commissioned by Dr Anthony Fauci, who was the then-head of the US’s national research agency that had been funding risky virus research at the lab in Wuhan.
House Republicans grilled two doctors at the center of the fight over whether the coronavirus emerged from nature or a lab, citing the newly disclosed communications between scientists in early 2020 as evidence of a cover-up – something the scientists strongly refuted.
Now, Republicans are pointing out any contrary voice was quashed before there was any debate at all.
Democrats are evil. It’s all about politics. It’s not about truth, or safety, or medicine, or science. It is only about their politics and their power.Commentary
