Social media giant Twitter has repeatedly censored right-wing personalities for perceived offenses – both real and imagined – throughout its 13-year history.

While it’s a private company and can do what it wants, the fact remains that tweeting Chinese communist party officials have been allowed to spread blatant lies about the novel coronavirus. 

Newsbusters’ Alexander Hall reports:

Spokesperson & Deputy Director General, Information Department, Foreign Ministry of China Lijian Zhao has been blasted by both sides for spreading Chinese propaganda on Twitter. Zhao tweeted a piece headlined “COVID-19: Further Evidence that the Virus Originated in the US” at 9:02 p.m. on March 12. Later that day he speculated, “It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan.”

Twitter had allegedly censored ZeroHedge for theorizing about the origin of the coronavirus, citing Twitter’s Platform Manipulation policy, but has since allowed what Buzzfeed called “Conspiracy Theories That The Coronavirus Didn’t Originate In China” to remain online all weekend.

Zhao tweeted a second article at 10:33 p.m. headlined “China’s Coronavirus: A Shocking Update. Did The Virus Originate in the US?” with the caption “Just take a few minutes to read one more article. This is so astonishing that it changed many things I used to believe in. Please retweet to let more people know about it.”

The Post Millennial Editor-at-large Andy Ngo called out Zhao’s ties to the Chinese government: “Zhao Lijian, the Chinese foreign ministry spokesman, has suggested that coronavirus was brought to China by the US military. Zhao was recently promoted after gaining praise from the Communist ruling party for denouncing Western liberal democracies.”

Several mainstream media reporters, including The New York Times’ Steven Lee Myers and the Daily Beast’s Brendon Hong have been highly critical of the Chinese Communist Party’s attempt to spin COVID-19’s origins.

Won’t be surprised when Twitter and FB and Etc. are shut down and reopened for everybody and Zucker and Dorsey are tried for espionage and treason which are commonplace in times of crisis for the nation.
Why they ever thought they could avoid it is beyond comprehension.

I wouldn’t hold my breath about Dorsey and Zuckerberg, you’ll be way beyond blue. Trump and the federal government has ZERO authority over the Internet. You nutcases keep calling everything not endorsed by the Tea Party conservatives to be “treason” when the truth is you haven’t a clue what that is.

I have a tendency to believe the Chinese on this one., The FBI has already arrested a Harvard researcher who was working at Ft. Detrick for selling samples to China. It may have escaped from Wuhan, but it was developed by the USA, the same way HIV wand Ebola were.

Sichuan is close to Wuhan. The lab is in Sichuan. Iranians were there, in large numbers. Why? To infect Israelis? The Chinese are liars. They are still doing this-

Who’s sick and tired of having to deal with china and the mainland chinese? Time for a worldwide boycott of all chinese goods,IMMEDIATELY! The chinese alone are responsible for this worldwide pandemic. Time for the USA to divest itself of all its business interest and doings in china, bring back the jobs these thieving bastards stole over the years and forbid any more chinese immigration especially workers in the tech industry. Any and all business that keep their operations in china should be fined big time and if they go out of business, so be it. Any person caught spying for china, immediate arrest, trial, conviction and execution! These might be drastic measures but we did just fine before we began dealings with these thieving untrustworthy bastards and we’ll be much better off having the jobs here back in the USA..

You can thank REPUBLICAN Richard Nixon for opening up China and sending our businesses there.
