By promoting fraudulent data, aggressively deploying disinformation, and flexing its institutional clout, Beijing transformed the snake oil of lockdowns into “science,” crippling rival economies, expanding its influence, and sowing authoritarian values.

In March 2020, liberal democracy ground to a sudden stop.

Like the Reichstag Fire of 1933, historians may never know how SARS-CoV-2 came about. For scientists, exploring its origins would be a rewarding endeavor if it weren’t precluded by the jackboot of Xi Jinping’s CCP.
As one lead scientist wrote: "Xi's persistent refusal to allow an independent international investigation into the origins of the virus is more than a lack of responsibility, it is a declaration of contempt for human life." "It is a crime that cost lives."

While intelligence agencies spent months investigating COVID's origins, the world imposed "lockdowns" modeled on those in China, causing a Depression-level collapse, widespread hunger, and countless bankruptcies. This is how Beijing shut down the world.

1/11 THREAD — HOW CCP TURNS LIES INTO "SCIENCE"

Up to now, my Tweets on Beijing's propaganda have focused on their campaigns to sow mass fear and pressure politicians.

This thread is about how CCP influences elites; in other words, how CCP transforms horseshit into "science."
2/11 The key words in CCP’s elite propaganda are "China controlled the virus."

"China controlled the virus" is an ingenious Orwellian euphemism. The true meaning is "China controlled the virus, and no one else has. Therefore, do whatever China says."
newyorker.com/magazine/2020/…
3/11 Of course, "China controlled the virus,” is a bold-faced lie. China HAS NEVER controlled the virus. The CCP expelled journalists in March. Intelligence agencies confirmed China forged its numbers, and a cursory glance confirms they’re fake.

1/ Folks, this case is very simple. China controls the WHO and SAGE. The WHO and SAGE issue COVID guidelines—due to the WHO and China’s influence in health authorities such as CDC and NHS, these guidelines are assiduously implemented.
2/ The CCP used its influence in politics, academia, and science to legitimize COVID lockdowns. FBI has reported hundreds of NHS scientists had illicit China ties. FBI has also reported CCP approached many local politicians to endorse its lockdowns.
3/ Further, the New York Times has reported that CCP used hundreds of thousands of fake accounts to sow fear and popularize lockdowns on social media. A tiny sample of those fake accounts is pictured here. The fake accounts were never even deactivated.

1/5 This @nytimes article by @paulmozur is a smoking gun on the genesis of the coronavirus lockdowns.

According to the article, the CCP launched a massive social media campaign in ITALY to advertise its coronavirus lockdown measures in early March.

nytimes.com/2020/06/08/tec…
2/5 The fact that CCP’s disinformation campaign focused on Italy is crucial. Italy was the first country outside China to lock down. The rest of the world followed Italy’s lead.

3/5 But CCP's campaign wasn't limited to Italy. The article states that this Tweet advertising China's lockdown policy to the world is fake. It has 142,000 likes.

Tweets like this prove CCP was actively selling the world on Wuhan-style lockdowns in early March.
