People on Left Cite NYT’s Story to Blame Europe (and Trump), Not China, for Virus Spread, but They Zap Biden in the Process

Well, we may definitely have found the dumbest take of the day.

The New York Times is running with a story that “Most New York Coronavirus Cases Came From Europe, Genomes Show.”
Now deeper into the story, of course, they note the origin of all the strains of the virus come from China.

But you have to read into the story to see that, even though any logical thinking human being would understand that since that’s where it originated. It means that someone brought it to Europe from China.

But the tweet and the headline play into and help the Chinese government’s effort at deflecting from their own blame, as though they’re suggesting something other than what we already know about the origin of the disease.

It also sent some on the left over the edge because for those who neither read or were logical, to them it meant “Orange Man Bad” for blaming China. Some of them seemed to miss the point that it still originated in China.

Here’s a small sample.


Oh, my gosh, she doesn’t know how?

This guy seems to think that Drs. Fauci and Birx were somehow hiding this information.

So, first, these folks need to learn to read an article if they’re going to cite to it, not just the deceptive headline. Italy was decimated largely because of its connection with Wuhan. It then spread all over Europe.

None of the story negates China lying, covering up, spreading the virus to the world, punishing their doctors and journalists, lying to WHO about it not being contagious, lying about the number of cases which threw off our models, giving people defective equipment and falsely blaming the United States.

It’s like saying don’t blame the guy in Car A who bumped into Car B which then bumped into you.

Not to mention the infections in places like Washington state are clearly directly from China

Obviously, the China travel ban prevented more people from coming in and infecting others.


Moreover, this isn’t breaking news; the Trump administration knew this a month ago which is why they banned travel from Europe on March 12. Remember Dr. Fauci announcing that most of the new infections now were connected to Europe?

What was the reaction of the Democratic de facto nominee, Joe Biden, about Trump cutting travel with Europe? He said he didn’t think it was necessary. So, how’s that working, folks on the left, as you try to play this new game of don’t blame China, but blame Europe and Trump?

So, will the Democrats now call out Biden for not being up to speed a month ago?
