Twitter Censors Conservatives, Gives Chinese Officials a Pass

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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..

  3. THE ONE WHO BROUGHT THE VIRUS TO ” CHINA ” IS THE BEARDED ASS CEO OF TWITTER WHO ALLOWS THE CHINKS TO RUN WILD WITH THERE POISON SHIT AND DENIES THE AMERICAN FOLKS TO REBUT THESE PHONY MIDGETS MAKING BOGUS STATEMENTS ON THERE VIRUS NOW PERMEATING THE WHOLE WORLD! TIME FOR THESE RANCID SOCIAL MEDIA COMPANIES BE REGULATED AS ALL OTHER NEWS AND OPINION PAGES!

    • I don’t know what universe you live in, but NONE of the news and/or opinion media are regulated according to the Constitution.

  4. Time to prosecute these SOBs for subversion. These type of people are not americans thus they should be treated as enemies of our nation; maybe they should be asked to give up their citizenships and sent to China or Cuba where their sympathies lie.

  5. Who brought us:

    Coronavirus
    Swine Flu
    Bird Flu… which I hear has now resurfaced in Wuhan
    Sars
    Etc.

    Why I do believe it’s our good Friends in CHINA. TIME FOR REPARATIONS FOR THE WORLDWIDE FATALITIES ETC.!!!!

  6. Twitter only censors conservative Americans, but suck up to China, and other commies. Go figure. The simple solution is don’t use Twitter. They need us more than we need them.

  7. I agree with all of these commentators, the chinese and the muslims want nothing but the destruction of America. china has been stealing from the US for decades and the muslims are just evil.

  8. Might have been an Iranian mistake when traveling through China. Please do some thorough investigation on people who came through during that period! Sounds like a perfect opportunity to create havoc through creating a problem between working Nations! We need to be very careful about blaming anything until it’s been fully investigated. The true origin of this will be determined. So help me God

  9. They have been giving the Socialist/Communist Left (Same thing) a pass for years. Wake up America, Socialism/Communism is NOT your friend!
