Wisconsin Republican Rep. Mike Gallagher said on Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech’s Fox News podcast Monday he’s concerned the Democrats’ fear of Chinese confrontation would impede substantive efforts to investigate the origin of the novel Wuhan coronavirus.
While Trump Derangement Syndrome and an incompetent media apparatus gave China an 18-month head start to cover up suspicions of a lab leak from Wuhan, Gallagher said, “there’s this sort of broader fear that I’m detecting on the left of provoking a confrontation with the Chinese Communist Party.”
“I don’t know if there’s a financial incentive behind that or just a, ‘Hey we don’t want to wind up in a World War III,’ thing behind that,” Gallagher added. “At the same time we’re getting very good at constantly bashing America and broadcasting to the world what an evil racist hellscape of a country this is. There’s reticence to criticize the Chinese Community Party which by the way, is perpetuating a genocide right now.”
