Mac Slavo of “SHTF Plan” posts that authoritarian communist China is now censoring critics of coronavirus propaganda in the U.S., or those in the U.S. trying to tell family members still in China about what’s going on.
VICE News spoke to dozens of WeChat users in the U.S. and Canada, as well as some users in the U.K., France, Spain, Australia, Germany, and Malaysia, who reported identical problems with their accounts as they tried to share information with their family and friends in China.
The restrictions will prevent international users from sending any information to contacts in China. In some cases, they have also had their accounts suspended or blocked completely and accused of “spreading malicious rumors.” In many cases, the censorship means their only communication link to people inside China has been cut off completely, according to a report by VICE News.
If someone attempts to get information that is not approved by the Chinese government to people living under the tyranny there, they will likely be silenced, if not punished.
WeChat is a unit of Tencent, one of China’s largest tech companies, which also happens to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Now users in the U.S. are calling for Congress to intervene to preserve their freedom of speech, however, free speech is all but dead in the U.S. too. And the politicians claiming authority over the rest of us are unlikely to do much if anything about it.
“Tencent is the evil helper of a totalitarian government that suppresses freedom of speech and democracy,” one WeChat user who lives in Philadelphia and wanted to remain anonymous due to fears of retribution, told VICE News.“They delete or block your posts if they think it promotes democracy and challenges the government. It violates my civil rights as a U.S. citizen. I came to the U.S. for freedom. I thought I escaped from the threat of the Communist Party. But I’m wrong, I still live in terror because Tencent is monitoring my WeChat and may report me to the Chinese authorities.”
Things aren’t much better in the U.S. where companies like Facebook, Google, and YouTube delete or censor information that isn’t government-approved. In fact, the World Health Organization and Google have been working together to censor coronavirus information.
As I noted yesterday, the liberty-hating Chinese rulers are stepping up their numbers of “confirmed” coronavirus cases by using CT scans to find signs of pneumonia, regardless of whether such patients tested positive for coronavirus. As Jon Rappoport has pointed out which I linked to yesterday, China has a huge air pollution problem, which compromises the respiratory systems of the people there (as well as their immune systems). That would probably make people more vulnerable to pneumonia. So it seems that the Chinese rulers are assuming that people showing signs of pneumonia (through CT scans) therefore have the coronavirus. (No, that doesn’t “confirm” anything! People who actually have pneumonia do not necessarily have it via coronavirus.)
Now I see an article on a Hong Kong news website that the horrible, anti-liberty authoritarian Chinese rulers are confiscating “private” property in the name of attempting to prevent spread of the coronavirus. So, given that there is reason to be skeptical of the occurrence of coronavirus that they claim is in the tens of thousands like “44,000 confirmed cases,” but only 1,177 deaths (compare to the millions of cases of the flu and hundreds of thousands of deaths worldwide each year), it could be that the whole coronavirus scare is for China to regress back to their good old days of no private property, no private ownership and full communism. We know they want it, because the Chinese rulers love power and control, just like the rulers in the U.S. and their rulers-wannabe such as commies Bernie and Liawatha.
However, I could be wrong, given that China’s economic activity is nearly ground to a halt. They’re not THAT extreme now, are they? (Wait, they’re communists!)
By the way, I found those articles on Wendy McElroy’s blog, which I highly recommend.
UPDATE: Additionally, the authoritarian Chinese central planners now want to take much of their existing paper cash out of circulation, and either disinfect it or replace it. So, they could be exploiting this epidemic to try to get rid of cash altogether, which many freedom-hating authoritarians in Amerika also want to do.
