China’s Bat Plague Propaganda War
Michael P. Senger has posted an excellent thread on Twitter that details the history of the Chinese Communist Party’s use of Bat Plague propaganda beginning in mid-January to attack the U.S.
I’ve mentioned before that the China Cooties hoax began with propaganda videos that the CCP put out on social media in January. The general theme of the videos was people collapsing in the streets of Wuhan, but there were also videos of authorities spraying something on the streets and welding shut the metal doors of (supposedly) apartment towers full of living residents.
There were also photos of supposed mass graves and, my favorite, supposed shots from space of massive fires used to cremate all the WuFlu victims, I kid you not. Looking at the videos and photos now, they are farcical. You can see a small collection of them here.
Unfortunately, that collection doesn’t include my personal favorite. In that Academy Awards-level performance, a guy who looks like a security guard, in an office full of instrument panels and screens, suddenly begins to moan. Then he sticks out a rigid arm with a rigid hand contorted into a hook, looks at it in horror, and the moan turns into an agonized scream. After about 15 seconds of screaming, he rises from his chair stiffly with his arm still outstretched, spins around, and falls to the floor amidst a great crashing of chairs. You can find the move easily in any 1950s Western.
Here’s another video that went viral. Note there’s no rigidity at all. Also note that nobody in the entire rest of the world has ever been walking around, perfectly fine, then suddenly dropped dead of Sino Snot Storm:

And here’s a hit video of a guy who’s supposedly dead or at least unconscious but manages to get both arms out to break his fall:

Now, it’s well known that the CCP exercises rigid control over Chinese social media, on which all these videos supposedly first appeared. A recent video of Three Gorges Dam showing evidence of severe cavitation disappeared from social media within hours. But somehow dozens of these videos made it onto the rest of the world’s social media and have stayed up to this day. As a poker player, my immediate reaction in January when I saw them was, “call this bluff.”
Turns out hundreds of thousands of CCP-controlled social media accounts were pushing these videos and posting incessantly about Bat Plague lockdowns until exactly May 25, the day George Floyd died. Then all of these hundreds of thousands of accounts switched immediately to incessant BLM posts.
And the CCP didn’t limit its effort to propaganda. Here’s China’s People’s Liberation Army using social media to recruit Antifa and BLM and teach them how to riot. Here they are leading the Antifa/BLM assault on the White House in the first DC riots:
Remember 3 Chinese dressed up as🇭🇰protesters during Antifa/BLM riots attacking the White House. Their Chinese controller filmed the attack & ordered them to leave quickly in Chinese? Radio Free Asia reported the #CCP PLA’s intel unit's direct involvement. https://t.co/0Hx1fPtphw pic.twitter.com/L9lENxgUVu

Again, it all started with hundreds of thousands of fake CCP-controlled accounts propagandizing for lockdowns, then riots. All of the accounts put out identical posts. They posted in dozens of languages. Twitter claimed they removed 170,000 of these accounts, but if they did, they failed to remove hundreds of thousands of others, including a large number reported by other Twitter users or identified publicly by the New York Times.
Here, hundreds of fake accounts whine about "washing their hands" while China locks down. Nearly identical Tweets are made in many languages.

To Make Sure We Locked Down, China Paid Off Our Scientists and State/Local Politicians
China didn’t want to take a chance that the U.S. would follow Sweden’s example and just go straight for herd immunity, the well-established practice for a virus with a death rate as low as Chop Fluey, which has a death rate a fraction of the annual flu. So they paid off our scientists and state and local politicians, as well as federal bureaucrats, to make sure we locked down.
54 scientists at the National Institutes of Health have been fired for taking money from the CCP and the investigation of NIH has barely started. In addition, the NSF and NIH have found almost 200 scientists who are funded by them (175 at NIH and 16 at NSF so far) who were getting undisclosed money from China [link].
As you know, Lancet had to withdraw a fake study showing that hydroxychloroquine didn’t work. The data was completely made up by a porn actress and a science fiction writer. Lancet has also praised lockdowns and the CCP’s approach to the “pandemic.” Any guesses on who may be paying Lancet?
American physicist Yaneer Bar-Yam has spent months cheerleading China’s lockdowns—including the CCP’s genocidal lockdown in Xinjiang, where Uighurs who aren’t yet in the CCP’s death camps are imprisoned in their own neighborhoods, run much like the Nazis ran the Warsaw Ghetto in WWII. In February, Bar-Yam launched a website recommending strict lockdowns in 18 languages.
When Gov. Kristi Noem refused to lock down South Dakota, CCP accounts flooded the responses to her social media posts, pressuring her to shut down.
The same accounts have been praising the draconian Australian and New Zealand lockdowns.
But it gets worse. On July 7, FBI Director Chris Wray said China had approached many local politicians in the U.S. to encourage them to lock down. Sec. of State Pompeo has already warned us that numerous government officials at the state and local level are getting money from China in one form or another.
Now add in the fake news media helping to push the hoax. CNN journalist Amber Lyon said CNN routinely takes money from the U.S. and foreign governments to alter their news reporting and even report fake news. A CNN producer recently registered as a lobbyist for China. White House Correspondent Paula Reid is married to an American Chamber of Commerce lobbyist in China.
Comcast, the parent company of NBC, is trying to build and operate a big theme park in China, but they don’t have permission to open yet. Bloomberg has made billions leasing his terminals in China but also depends on special access to China’s data. The New York Times and Washington Post have just deleted hundreds of propaganda “news articles” on their websites paid for by the CCP. I could do another thousand words about the media’s financial relationships with China.
The fake news is the enemy of the people and too many Americans still don’t get it. I have linked to hundreds of excellent studies about Bat Plague that debunk every scare story China and its allies ever told about it, and so have many other people. Yet even people who read the studies seem unable to retain the information in the face of media lies.
It’s time to get a grip! We have been too easy pickings for the predators, people.
