The Wuhan virus has been one of the world’s greatest catastrophes in many years.
China’s Communist government is largely responsible for the spread of the pandemic.
But Democrats are doing China’s bidding in a truly disturbing way.
The Wuhan coronavirus has killed over 370,000 people worldwide, but big media in America has shockingly given them a free pass.
First, they called it a conspiracy theory to speculate whether or not the virus originated in a biohazard lab in Wuhan.
Eventually, the corporate press had to relent and admit that there was a possibility it could’ve originated in the lab instead of the wet market.
Then, the so-called mainstream media scolded people as “racist” and “xenophobic” for using the terms “Wuhan virus” or “Wuhan flu” despite the same outlets using that exact language for weeks.
The term COVID-19 was created by the World Health Organization so as not to stigmatize China, but this is absurd.
Viruses have been named after their place of origin for a century.
Even journalists in China called the virus the “Wuhan Flu” because COVID-19 does not translate to Mandarin.
The WHO’s designation makes even more sense when factoring in that the globalist organization is in China’s pocket.
But now American tech companies are getting in on the act of policing language in a way that redounds to the benefit of the Chinese Communist Party.
YouTube, which is owned by Google, was caught censoring language that was critical of the CCP.
Comments on the site that included the terms “communist bandit” and “50-cent party” were disappearing en masse within seconds.
“Communist bandit” refers to a slur before Mao Zedong’s Communist Revolution was successful, and “50-cent party” originates from a claim that online users are paid 50 cents for every pro-CCP post they make.
The tech site The Verge caught the censorship phenomenon and called YouTube out on it.
YouTube reversed the policy and blamed the disappearing comments on an overzealous “enforcement system.”
A spokesperson for YouTube told The Verge that “the issue that caused comments containing these phrases to be deleted had been fixed for a number of these terms, but that it was still investigating the deeper causes of the error.”
It’s quite clear that the cause for the censorship was ideological programming on someone’s part.
“Communist bandit” and “50-cent party” are not obscene phrases, and they would only be understood by someone with an ideological bent.
According to The Verge:
“A spokesperson told The Verge only that the deletions were not the result of any change to YouTube’s moderation policy, and that the company has been relying on its automated systems more than ever recently as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, implying that the automatic deletions are connected.”
China’s censorship of its own people is terrifying, so American companies shouldn’t be aiding them in their efforts.
In many ways, the social media giants have become the public square, so they shouldn’t be subject to the party line of the CCP.
