... our nation turns its Panicky eyes to you... Wu Hu Flu....
I would normally put this caveat or disclaimer at the bottom in a footnote, but this time it's important to me that the reader read this part first:
The Unz Review website has been my 2nd favorite for the last 3 years or so. (#1 is Peak Stupidity of course!) I mean that more to indicate which site I spend more entertaining time on, not especially which site in the world has the most truthful material. For the unz site, which is one of only 4 on our blogroll, I spend more time on it by a long shot over any other site but right here.
Unz.com is an extremely well-working site, made by a very intelligent guy who's done more than his share of software work. I know some commenters here don't agree, but the commenting system is my favorite of any other I've seen in functionality (yes, of course it beats hell out of PS in that sense).
The Unz Review does a tremendous service in the name of the truth, or the search for it, anyway, in archiving loads of writer's older work, links to videos, and entire books. This is material that could and probably would, the way things are going, get lost. I use "get lost" here not in the passive sense, but as in the woke American society purposefully losing them!
I admire Ron Unz for being a truly stand-up guy in regards to publishing lots of material that most others are scared to publish. Not only that, but, even for the material below - the Kung Flu PanicFest - Mr. Unz will continue publishing work by writers who are 180 degrees off from his opinions. We know his opinions both from his own (usually very long) articles and from his occasional comments in the various threads. (He moderates very lightly, with exceptions for rare bouts.)
Note the titles of the Ron Unz-authored articles shown above, just a small sampling of hundreds, taken from a screen-shot I made in summer '18*. Yeah, they're controversial, as are most of the articles/columns by the dozens, or maybe near 100, writers on the blog. Now that you've noted those 3 titles, I'll get to my point which is my perplexity about the mind of this guy, right now, during this life-changing Kung Flu PanicFest.
As I wrote already, this PanicFest is no exception for Mr. Unz on his policy of letting all sides chime in. I see Ron Unz’s opinions as very open-minded, but most open-minded when the opinion is anti-Americans (note that’s plural) in any way at all. He’ll believe any weird shit that makes Americans look like the worst people in the world. I don’t get that, but that's not my beef here.
What I find amazing is that with all his highly-researched journalism on all sorts of cover-ups, false narratives, and schemes in American history, Ron Unz does not see the one right in front of his face happening RIGHT NOW. Instead, what does he do? With purely circumstantial evidence, he comes up with the big conspiracy that the American military or Deep State created the Kung Flu, infected the Chinese via a sports team that “just happened” to be in Wuhan. He's written a dozen or more posts or so on this conspiracy theory of his, to be found among his own articles here**.
I mean, it ain’t like there’s not been a lot of back-and-forth travel to China and that Wuhan isn't a big-ass city even for China. What also “just happened”‘ to be in Wuhan was one of just a handful of high-level infectious disease labs, finished less than 2 years before the virus. Apparently, Mr. Unz’s conspirators were smart enough to create the disease and infect China but not to foresee that the disease could spread around the world, including America, via, I dunno, New York City or somewheres?? BTW, it's not like I'm even completely sure that Ron Unz is wrong in this. It's just that his fixation about the origin of the Kung Flu is distracting him from any analysis of the PanicFest itself.
My point about Ron Unz is that his talent and efforts are being wasted on the conspiracy stuff. We have this huge nation-destroying (or accelerant of it, at least) PanicFest going on.
It involves the Lyin’ Press, though not as a conspiracy – they are too stupid for that. It involve government officials at the high Federal level, State level, etc. It involves medical professionals of all sorts, giving all sorts of conflicting important “expert” advice. There’s a load of money involved, with incentives for it to continue and disincentives for people that don’t accept the panic. It involves a great increase in the Police State/Totalitarianism in this country and others.
If ever there were a big story that could rival that of WWI and WWII being instigated by certain people or the people behind the implementation of Communism in Russia, who shot JFK (or JR, for that matter) or. any one of Ron’s areas of historical research that many appreciate, woudn’t this Kung Flu PanicFest be it? Yet, Mr. Unz is so into his “who started it?” conspiracy theory instead. I’m just wondering if that’s just an anti-Americans and pro-Chinese attitude coming though. Be that as it may, this is the biggest story of the century, with huge amounts of political implications. Wake up, Ron Unz! This is happening NOW, Ron, Right Here, Right Now (Unfortunately, it's not as bright a happening as the fall of the Commies in Europe, the subject of that Jesus Jones' song).
PS: Why pick on poor Ron Unz? OK, he's not exactly poor, first of all. There are plenty of Americans that ought to be high-profile opinion-leaders for the Anti-Panic side. Ron Unz coulda' been a contender. We could use a guy like him on our side, not in his current capacity as a source of another anti-all-things-American conspiracy theorist.
* I was searching for images for this post, and I found this one already uploaded. It works fine for this post.
** I didn't link directly to the posts, not because of any animosity about it, but just because he's got lots of other work there. You'll have to scan through anything with a title containing "China", "Wuhan", "Ft. Dietrik" (don't ask), and/or "COVID".
