While we debate whether calling the Coronavirus the "Chinese virus" is racist; which quick aside, neocon warmonger David Frum has some incredibly deep thoughts about it:
Literally everyone calls the Spanish Flu the "Spanish Flu." (And that virus didn't even start in Spain.)
But back to my point. On a much more serious note, China has really screwed the world. Whether you want to blame Trump for underplaying the virus, not preparing correctly, making gaffes or being pathetically petty, or Democrats for pushing back on Trump's travel restrictions, blather about racism or wasting time on a pointless impeachment while the virus was brewing; what we can all agree on is that China's government screwed the world.
Axios has compiled a timeline of the earliest weeks of the coronavirus outbreak in China, highlighting when the cover-up started and ended — and showing how, during that time, the virus already started spreading around the world, including to the United States.
Indeed, the Chinese Communist government is reminding me of the Soviet government as (more ore less accurately) portrayed in Chernobyl. Lies, lies, lies. And these lies will kill an untold number of people.
We absolutely must decouple our economy from China's.
