I believe the virus was man-made through gain-of-function research.

I don't believe that China intentionally leaked the virus.

I do believe that everything China did after they discovered the leak was done to ensure that China came out of the pandemic on top and that the rest of the world took a bigger economic hit than they did.

They bought PPE from all around the world with their army of foreign shoppers, while they lied to the WHO.

They shut down their domestic travel whilst international travel continued.

They promoted lockdowns in other countries whilst they were ending their own.

This year, they doubled their number of nuclear missile silos.

They are ready for the backlash, because they have been preparing for it for over a year.

The West really got fucked by China’s virus. The West cannot even stop China sending Covid21 - because china will attack them as “racist”

China knows how to manipulate the “useful idiots” in Western media

The West really got fucked by China’s virus.

More like got fucked by their own leaders and representatives using the virus as an excuse to seize more power. Certainly can't punish China either. Too much profit in keeping up business with China.

If modern governments weren't all so corrupt, we'd be a lot better off. Doesn't matter who you blame for bribing them, because the one taking the bribe will always be the one most to blame.

I imagine a huge chunk of political shills on the internet are the 50 cent army, including a lot in the alt-right.

Not "50 cent army".

Call them "Two-bit solders". Much better name.

They're a dime a dozen, regardless of what the nickname is. I just wish Nixon had never opened trade with them. Good chance they would've collapsed by now if He hadn't.

They were in the process of collapsing when Tiananmen happened, then we went and propped them back up.

I know of one confirmed 50 cent soldier posting right here, on Kia2. He is an avid poster, and a China shill.

Just because I like Epic, doesn't mean I shill for China FFS.

Is it me? I think that lefties should live in commie nations as proles for at least a couple years.

No.

Hint: it has a name that a certain journalist likes as porn.

The fact that they were so transparent and unsophisticated about their astroturfing made me lose even more respect for normies who can't seem to see what's going on, or don't care.

normies who can't seem to see what's going on, or don't care.

I think it's worse than 'can't see', it's refusal to see.

Refusal to see that the gradual weakening of the west is setting the stage for the next global power struggle to begin. Refusal to see that The Long Peace is likely nearing its end, and that war with a major power is looking increasingly likely.

It's not too surprising that comfortable, apathetic first worlders would refuse to acknowledge that they're staring a potential nuclear war in the face.

I completely missed this last year.

I was too busy on reddit (basically a propaganda arm of the CCP these days)

I hadn't seen those specific tweets to Boris in your link before. Although one problem with NPCs is they often sound like bots anyway.
