How America Is Worse Than Coronavirus

The US has become the greatest threat to global health

The wedding parties getting droned or the children in cages tried to tell us earlier, but America is a unique combination of dumb and evil. It’s the dumbest people in the world, manipulated by the most evil. Now, with the outbreak of coronavirus, this affects us all.

Disease

While we tend to view coronavirus suppression in national terms, any case is a threat to global security. Almost entirely through government incompetence and malice, America generates the most cases of COVID-19 in the world, almost all of them preventable.

Disinformation

And America doesn’t just spread disease, they also spread disinformation. Fake cures, telling people to gather, attacks on global institutions, other countries, and their own states — the American federal government has gone rogue. The conspiracy-theorist villain in the film Contagion has become President and the call is coming from inside the house.

Destruction

In more practical terms, the US government has defunded and attacked the WHO in them middle of a pandemic, the equivalent of cutting the fire department during 9/11.

They’ve also cut the water department as well. Dr. Rick Bright, the Director of BARDA, who was leading the vaccine effort has been fired. He was fired for resisting the corruption and stupidity that has made America a threat to humanity.

“I believe this transfer was in response to my insistence that the government invest the billions of dollars allocated by Congress to address the Covid-19 pandemic into safe and scientifically vetted solutions, and not in drugs, vaccines and other technologies that lack scientific merit,” he said in his statement. “I am speaking out because to combat this deadly virus, science — not politics or cronyism — has to lead the way.”

“I also resisted efforts to fund potentially dangerous drugs promoted by those with political connections.” (NYTimes)

Instead of vaccines and public health, the US government is promoting fake ‘cures’ and armed public protests. Instead of cooperation, the US is promoting racist blame against China — a country with many faults which nonetheless suppressed the virus. They have also joined Russia in blocking a global cease-fire and have increased sanctions on Iran when they are getting people killed through lack of medical supplies.

Worse Than The Virus

The virus we can at least suppress. East Asia and the Indian state of Kerala have shown us this. A rogue superpower, however, is truly out of control. No matter what the rest of the world does, America will keep generating more disease in its borders, spreading more disinformation everywhere, and destroying everything in its path. This affects us all.

In a disease with no cure, public health is the only protection we have. Public health isn’t fancy medicine or technology, it’s just information, and people working together. America poisons this, our only defense. The ideas it has contributed to this pandemic are:

  1. There is no pandemic
  2. Who cares
  3. It’s someone else’s fault

None of this is helpful. Indeed, it has all cost lives.

Denial

The American delusion that this was not serious got its own people killed, but also influenced other countries to delay. This cost thousands of lives, destroyed economies, and spread the virus to even further.

Stupidity

The American lie that this is no big deal (“no worse than the flu”) also led to inaction, which led to death, ruin, and even more disease.

The main contribution of the US (and UK) to global discourse has been the idea that we should kill our grandparents, and that haircuts are worth dying for. This is not helpful, to say the least. The idiocy circulating out of the US state is getting people killed there and across the world.

Distraction

Finally, the American distraction that this is China’s fault or the WHO’s has also — in addition to being wrong — corrupted discourse and fractured international cooperation at a time when it is needed most.

Whatever China’s faults, specifically delaying their initial response, they at least suppressed their epidemic and bought time for the rest of the world. That is no excuse for the fact that the US is still delaying — they still have no clear national suppression strategy, months in.

Whatever the WHO’s faults, they did provide clear warnings in January, February, and every month since — all while the US dithered, lied, and spread misinformation, fake cures, and ultimately disease.

Attacking the global immune system

Our immune systems have no resistance to this disease. All we have is our global immune system, which is cooperation and public health. It is this immune system that America is attacking, which makes America so dangerous right now.

During Ebola, the world looked to America for help, even from a continent away. The then-President Obama helped, and built future pandemic response into the American state itself. President Trump destroyed this infrastructure, turned America into a failed state, and now this zombie nation is attacking the world.

Coronavirus hijacks our very cells, but Donald Trump has hijacked an entire country. The United States of America is now the greatest threat to public health and security in the world. Coronavirus we can fight by working together. By attacking within, without, and everywhere outside of its corrupt and idiotic President, America has become worse than the disease.
