The Faucist tribe keeps pushing their COVID conspiracies, but new evidence has emerged that may bolster the argument for natural origins. A new report from the New York Times suggests that genetic data from the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market in Wuhan links the coronavirus with raccoon dogs for sale. The data were drawn from swabs taken from the market shortly after the Chinese authorities closed it down because of suspicions related to the spread of a new virus. And although the jumbled genetic material doesn’t provide incontrovertible evidence that a raccoon dog was infected or the source of the spread, this new data should be taken into account.
JUST IN – Fauci Now Says A Lab Leak Could Still Be Considered As Coming From Natural Origins
"A lab leak could be that someone was out in the wild maybe looking for different types of viruses in bats, got infected, went into a lab, and was being studied in a lab, and then came… https://t.co/iocm9lHsCH pic.twitter.com/zmPcwIcQmC

However, not all are convinced that this new data is credible. While Jerry Dunleavy at the Washington Examiner notes that it seems significant, he explains that scientists who have long pushed the theory of the market’s connection to the virus have only recently pushed fresh claims involving raccoon dogs that have not been peer-reviewed. This “raccoon dog theory” only emerged following firmer intelligence assessments in recent weeks pointing to the Wuhan lab as the source of the outbreak.

A group of scientists who have long pushed the theory that COVID-19 may have emerged from a Wuhan, China, wet market has now pushed fresh claims involving raccoon dogs.
Their findings have not been peer-reviewed.https://t.co/7EHActHP38

Another concern is that the data cited in the article has not been made available for analysis. Richard Ebright, the lab director for the Waksman Institute of Microbiology at Rutgers University, pointed out that the claim adds little to the discussion because the data doesn’t indicate that a raccoon dog was infected with the virus, much less that the animal transmitted the virus to a human. Additionally, the scientists behind the study have a track record of false claims, and their new claims lack the data to verify their statements.
Given the CCP’s history of cover-ups, skepticism is warranted in this case. Still, leftist elites continue to be selective and hypocritical in their outrage. For instance, Brown University is hosting CY Leung, a Chinese official that escalated the suppression of Hong Kong’s protest movement, as a speaker at its China Summit. Leung even ordered a crackdown on the 2014 Umbrella movement, which resulted in violence against pro-democracy demonstrators. He now serves as a vice chairman of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, a political-influence organ that supports the Chinese political system. If only Brown University had the kind of outrage it uses to justify silencing conservatives and Trump supporters for hosting this menace to democracy and human rights.
