ERICKSON: CCP Disinformation Experts Played Us Like A Gong

Written by Allan Erickson on May 30, 2020

Imagine the latest meeting of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership reviewing the success of their global pandemic. They must have been rolling in the aisles, laughing uncontrollably at the mass hysteria generated in the West. The propaganda campaign alone was enough to drive us crazy, making us frantic to trade freedom for a defective mask and a case of quinine water. And our leaders went even more insane, shutting down whole and thriving economies and driving millions into poverty, or famine

The CCP proves that fear and confusion and ignorance and emotionalism are far more effective in war than nukes or even disease. So long as the West is overwhelmed by pouting babies easily spooked, conquest is assured. Already the news focuses on a second and third wave, reporting antibodies ineffective, symptoms worse and long-standing. The CCP has mastered the art of driving masses of people into a frenzy, with complete silence and compliance the eventual outcome. Our own leaders do the bidding of the CCP, calling it the only way to respond to the pandemic.

CCP disinformation experts played us like a gong–it’s a Communist Chinese fire drill.

First, the outbreak was hidden, then it was dismissed, then it caught like wildfire, and then the Chinese blamed the U.S Army. Since then the disinformation campaign has escalated with media assistance!

The World Health Organization (WHO) issued statements and not much more, allegedly helping the CCP cover-up.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) contributed little more than confusion, a virus in its own right, leading public officials to direct people, then redirect and misdirect.

Social distancing became a mantra, but as hysterical death projections proved wildly inaccurate, people lost trust in officialdom, a cadre of clowns allowing mass consumption at Walmart, then arresting and fining people for going to church.

Pelosi’s insanity must have busted guts all over Beijing. Three Trillion she wants to spend to bankrupt the country and ensure Democrats beat Trump in November, earmarking vast sums to fund abortion and persecute anyone violating lockdowns. She steals your money to destroy your economy and your livelihood only to preserve her power in November. In 1776 she would have faced a firing squad.

The insane messaging continues: wear a mask, masks are a hazard; stay inside and wash your hands but make sure to support your local strip club; liquor stores and pot shops are essential but don’t bother your doctor unless you have symptoms which are often undetectable; read the growing list of symptoms but don’t go to the ER unless you’re just about dead; quinine water and zinc are great but they’re a hoax; there is a vaccine on the near horizon but don’t count on it; the virus can live for 72 hours on a hard surface, no it can’t; it travels through the air great distances, no it doesn’t; you are immune once you have it, no you aren’t; testing is our salvation, no it isn’t; mitigation works, no it doesn’t; you can trust the CCP, the WHO, and the CDC—no you can’t; burn the churches, turn in your guns, sign up for food stamps, it’s the Chinese fire drill.

The truth all along: it is a serious virus that infects a small minority, but 99% survive, and there is little we can do about it other than ride it out.

Still, our leaders run in circles honking horns while the CCP yuks it up. It would be laughable if it weren’t so lethal to our liberty, security, and prosperity.
