Disinformation and blame:
how America’s far right
is capitalizing on coronavirus

Original Article

The far right in America has received the coronavirus pandemic in much the same manner as any other event: with disinformation, conspiracies and scapegoating. Many seem to see it as a significant opportunity, whether it is for financial gain, recruiting new followers, or both. The delayed and much criticized response to coronavirus by the Trump administration has helped them, leaving many Americans confused, bereft of information and looking for answers. A situation in which people are panic-buying supplies is ideal for a movement powered by fear and lies.

The Guardian is much further left than CNN. They approach Bernie in their Communist approach to life.

I posted this because we need to know what they are up to, no matter how reprehensible. I know we don't like hearing leftist lies, but this stuff is good to know. With this info we can proactively deflect their lies. I have been posting on FB and Twitter those other two good articles today exposing the leftist media's concerted propaganda effort of disinformation fomenting panic and blaming Trump. I am hoping it will open some eyes.

One reason for the confusion is the media's reaction to 200 deaths, so far , for this virus compared to thousands of flu deaths in the Obama years...all the wars, hurricanes, tornados, floods, 911 we endured in this country we never witnessed this type of reactions..closed schools, businesses, stopped Doctor appointments, closed restaurants... poor media without lies, exaggerations, misstatements, made up news..they would have no news.

What the Left always does is accuse the Right of what the Left is actually doing. Projection. Who is trying to make hay of this? The Left. Shutting down the economy and its subsequent financial stress isn't a Right wing desire... but it sure is something the left wants. So, say the Right wants it.

What is there to say about this week’s shameful events in the US Senate that doesn’t come across as hopelessly naive? What is there to say about this week’s shameful events in the US Senate that doesn’t sound hopelessly naive? What use is it to cite the Constitution, to refer to the Founders’ fears that exactly this kind of unchecked lawlessness would arise, or to appeal to core principles like the rule of law, the separation of powers and checks and balances? We are long past such gauziness.

The president of the United States reportedly sought the help of a foreign government against an American citizen who might challenge him for his office. This is the single most important revelation in a scoop by The Wall Street Journal, and if it is true, then President Donald Trump should be impeached and removed from office immediately.   Source corrected.

On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” former National Security Adviser Susan Rice stated that China does deserve some blame for how it handled the coronavirus outbreak, and “China is not behaving well in trying to blame this on the United States. But the flip side of it is, we are not behaving well when we talk about, as the president does every day, the Chinese virus, the Wuhan flu, and all of these racist descriptions.” Rice said, “So, there’s a lot of blame to be placed on China in terms of how it handled its processes internally, how they treated their people, how they suppressed information.

CNN commentator Chris Cuomo admonished President Trump for repeatedly calling the coronavirus "the Chinese virus." “Calling it the Chinese virus or the Wuhan virus or the Kung Flu. Listen, you may think it's clever, but it's hurting,” Cuomo said on his nightly show on Wednesday. “The idea, ‘Well, it did come from China.’ Then why doesn't Fauci and other top health officials, why don’t they call it that? You know why? Because it could have come from anywhere.” The virus, which has sparked a global pandemic, is believed to have originated in an animal market in Wuhan, China. Trump has said he uses the phrase "Chinese virus" for accuracy purposes.

The additional revelations came amid widespread outrage toward GOP senators Richard Burr and Kelly Loeffler, who reportedly traded shares after getting briefings on the coronavirus threat.

Former President Barack Obama on Wednesday warned Americans they would likely be stuck in their homes until late May. “[H]ere’s a sober but useful primer on what we should expect in the coming months,” Obama wrote on Twitter, sharing a New York Times opinion article from medical professionals Ezekiel J. Emanuel, Susan Ellenberg, and Michael Levy. The article predicts that a return to “normal” American activity would take months, not weeks. “That timeline suggests that your kids are not going back to school on April 1,” they wrote. “Nor are you returning to the office or catching a movie anytime soon. Plan for social distancing at least until mid-or late May,
