Tucker Carlson: “Poisonous Moron” Acosta & Media Protecting China At All Costs

In a monologue Thursday night, Tucker Carlson said the media is using Chinese talking points not to point to China as the originator of the COVID-19 virus. Carlson denounced reporters like “poisonous moron” Jim Acosta, who called it xenophobic for President Trump to state that COVID-19 came from China, for using Chinese Communist Party talking points.

“Even when China blaming us for a plague they unleashed, even with the Chinese government threatened to murder our citizens by cutting off drugs, our media continued to take their side,” Carlson said.

“Amazingly though it was just two months, and we keep track, that Acosta was sending tweets himself about the ‘Wuhan coronavirus.’ He hadn’t yet received his orders from Jeff Zucker which receives his from China, so that was okay. But now, the word is out, must protect China at all costs,” Carlson argued.

“Just to be clear, describing a virus from Wuhan as the Wuhan virus is not xenophobia, it’s accuracy and anyone who says otherwise is lying and probably for a reason,” he said. “In any crisis, our government’s chief obligation is to the lives of our country’s citizens. It’s not to other countries, it’s not to the GDP, it’s certainly not to the Communist Party of China. But for our ruling class, the highest priority of all is now and always wokeness. That, and approval from Beijing.”

TUCKER CARLSON, FOX NEWS: The global death toll of the Chinese coronavirus currently sits at almost five thousand people. That’s just the official number. In Iran, officials haven’t even confirmed 500 deaths, that’s what they’re claiming, and yet satellite images suggest authorities are excavating massive trenches to hold the bodies of victims. So the lesson there, and you knew this, government’s lie.

But they are not the only people who lie. As the death toll rises, it’s important to never forget how we got here: This pandemic came out of China. It came out of China for a reason. It is a country with poor health practices, it is a country where government officials deliberately covered up the early stages of the virus, when it could have been stopped before it spread out of control.

In fact, the outbreak may have begun not in a public meat market but in a poorly run Chinese laboratory. That is not our theory. Anyone who raises that theory is attacked as if they are a conspiracy monger. But this is a theory from a now-censored Chinese paper. A draft paper posted in mid-February: Scientists at the South China University of Technology suggested that the virus outbreak began at the Wuhan Center for Disease Control where an animal may have infected a researcher who then spread the disease outside the facility. The paper is explicit about this, we’re going to quote it: “The killer coronavirus probably originated in a laboratory in Wuhan.”

Now we have no idea if that is actually true, but again those were Chinese researchers making an evidence-based argument about the origin of this virus. That paper has since been taken down, no explanation has been offered for that you can guess. Instead, China, the same country that controls 96% of anti-biotics in this nation, the same nation that has been wanting to cut off drug exports to the U.S. to kill Americans is now trying to hide the reality of where the coronavirus came from. In fact, they are doing worse than that.

The Communist Party of China is trying to blame the virus on America.

Lijian Zhao is a spokesman for China’s foreign ministry. A week ago, Zhao attacked anybody who dared to link the virus to China:

Certain media say this coronavirus is a “China Virus”. This is extremely irresponsible and we firmly oppose that. We are still tracing the origin of the virus and there is no conclusion yet.

That was last week. Zhao was evolved since then. Today, on Twitter, Zhao accused America of c the virreatingus. Quote, “When did patient zero begin in U.S.? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be U.S. army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! U.S. owes us an explanation!”

Keep in mind, these are the people, the Chinese leadership that our media class has allied with, sucked up to for years, has made every excuse for, endlessly. Even when China blaming us for a plague they unleashed, even with the Chinese government threatened to murder our citizens by cutting off drugs, our media continued to take their side. Watch this.

CNN’S JIM ACOSTA: The President referred to the Coronavirus as a “foreign virus.” … And I think it’s going to smack – it’s going to come across to a lot of Americans as smacking of xenophobia.

That was CNN’s Jim Acosta, a poisonous moron. Amazingly though it was just two months, and we keep track, that Acosta was sending tweets himself about the “Wuhan coronavirus.” He hadn’t yet received his orders from Jeff Zucker which receives his from China, so that was okay. But now, the word is out, must protect China at all costs. Even presidential candidates are playing along. Watch this:

BIDEN: Downplaying it, being overly dismissive or spreading misinformation is only going to hurt us and further advance the spread of the disease, but neither should we panic or fall back on xenophobia. Labeling COVID-19 a “foreign virus” does not displace accountability for the misjudgments that have taken thus far by the Trump administration.

So it’s our fault. Just to be clear, describing a virus from Wuhan as the Wuhan virus is not xenophobia, it’s accuracy and anyone who says otherwise is lying and probably for a reason.

In any crisis, our government’s chief obligation is to the lives of our country’s citizens. It’s not to other countries, it’s not to the GDP, it’s certainly not to the Communist Party of China. But for our ruling class, the highest priority of all is now and always wokeness. That, and approval from Beijing.
