The Political Weaponization of the Sars-CoV-2 Virus

First, let’s take a closer look at the biological origins of the this virus and consider whether this virus may have been biologically weaponized. Then we can take a look at how the spread of this virus in the U.S. appears to have been politically weaponized.

There are some who believe that the Sars-CoV-2 virus was biologically weaponized by China and allowed to spread across the world intentionally by that country. There are many reasons to believe why this might be true. For example, if this virus was indeed a naturally occurring virus that simply escaped from the laboratory unenhanced in Wuhan, China, than why is it that the area where these bats thrive did not become a major epicenter of the epidemic? It would stand to reason that the locale where the virus originated, presumably in bat caves in the Yunnan province of China, would be an epicenter for the Covid-19 disease. Yet, that was not the case leading to the speculation that something happened in that laboratory in Wuhan to make this virus much more communicable and dangerous. Did this mutation happen spontaneously or was it genetically engineered? Some virologists would say that it would be highly unlikely that such a spontaneous mutation would occur that rapidly. Other virologists have said that genetic engineering is a definite possibility.

The genomic sequence of the virus that caused the pandemic, eventually named SARS-CoV-2, was 96 percent identical to that of a coronavirus the researchers had identified in horseshoe bats in Yunnan. However, this means that there is a 4 % difference between viral genome of the coronavirus found in the bats in the Yunnan province and the genome of the pandemic virus, the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which presumably somehow escaped from the Wuhan Virology Institute. Could it be that this 4% difference made the virus more pathogenic for humans? Could it be that this virus from the bat caves of Yunnan spontaneously mutated to a more pathogenic strain once it got to Wuhan and then subsequently somehow escaped the laboratory ? Or, was it genetically manipulated in the laboratory to become more pathogenic and then somehow managed to get released from the Wuhan Virology Institute ultimately leading to worldwide pandemic?

Genetically Manipulated?

We may never really know the answer to these questions, but what we do know is that having arrived in this U.S. this virus has wrought havoc and has now become politically weaponized. The political weaponization of the Sars-CoV-2 virus in this country started early on in the pandemic that began to swept world in the winter of 2020. Let me explain what I mean by this.

The left leaning elements of the political spectrum in this country are now using the pandemic as a political tool to instill fear in the population in order to achieve a political agenda. The plan is simple. Establish fear. Create panic. Place blame where it does not belong. Then use these measures to enforce obedience. Do what we tell you to do or the consequences will be dire. Do what we tell you to do. Not what we do. The agenda is also simple….to create a populace that does not question what it is being told. Just obey and you will be fine. Wear a mask whether you need to or not because we tell you to even though wearing a mask often makes no sense. To paraphrase Lenin, if you say something loud enough and long enough, it will eventually become truth. The concept is a simple one that works best when the element of fear is added.

So next let’s look at look at some of the truth about the pandemic in this country at this point in time so we can dispel some of the fear, hasten a return to normalcy and push back against those who would use this fear to control our lives.

This Sars CoV-2 virus is indeed a nasty bug no matter how it got here to our shores or how it evolved (see above), but it is definitely on the decline at this point. Nationally, according to a recent report from the CDC the number of new cases and deaths related to the disease are in decline. New vaccines will be available in the fall or early winter, and new therapeutics are being developed while old ones like hydroxychloroquine are being re-evaluated. Remdesiver which has been touted as a breakthrough drug in the treatment of Covid-19 may really not be the game changer that it was once touted as being. I refer you to an article in JAMA this past August which stated that “among patients with moderate COVID-19, those randomized to a 10-day course of remdesivir did not have a statistically significant difference in clinical status compared with standard care at 11 days after initiation of treatment.” It went on to state that “patients randomized to a 5-day course of remdesivir had a statistically significant difference in clinical status compared with standard care, but the difference was of uncertain clinical importance.” Other new anti-viral agents are being developed which will likely be better than remdesivir, and older ones like hydroxychloroquine are being looked at again. A recent study done at the Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit showed that hydroxychloroquine cut the death rate significantly although this well done study seems to have been buried and got little attention maybe because it was in Big Pharma’s best interest to do so.

So why do things seem to be turning around if we haven’t yet developed a cure or a vaccine? Well, there are probably several reasons. While we may not yet have the wonderful cure we are all looking for, we seem to be getting better at treating this thing. Also, although many of our medical experts seem to play down the idea of “herd immunity,” we may be seeing some of this contributing to the apparent downturn in the virus. Other experts do indeed feel that this is the case and if so then the vaccine will will further enhance this “herd immunity.” The virus may also be mutating to a weaker strain that is less pathogenic and less communicable. After All the Spanish Flu of 1918 and 1919 disappeared for reasons that we don’t completely understand but probably had a lot to due with mutation and herd immunity.

But while this is all happening, it seems that the political left is still looking to divide the country by casting blame where really none is due. The left is using this pandemic as a political tool to gain power. Instead of pulling the country together it harps on any issue that might be played to political advantage. It’s no longer a matter of what is good for the county. It’s now a matter of what is necessary to win an election and regain power. Create doubt, uncertainty, dissention and whatever else is necessary to to divide and conquer. Weaponize the Sars-CoV-1 virus from a political standpoint to achieve that end no matter what the cost to the country instead of putting political differences aside and doing what is best for the country. Whatever happened to patriotism, putting political differences aside and really doing what is good for the country? I guess it disappeared when the left decided that the electoral process in this country, which worked for over 200 years, was no longer legitimate and that Donald Trump was not really the president. Truth is no longer the truth. It seem that according to the left, truth is whatever you want it to be as long as you can yell the loudest.
