I have been looking for something, anything to restore my faith in W.H.O., the fact that the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) was so corrupt, and in the pocket of China, things could not get much worse, I was hoping things would turn around. Then they came out yesterday and said they supported China’s opening of their wet markets. I quickly found that despite me thinking we could not see more corruption, they stopped me dead and my tracks and let me know they could.
Australia was at a loss for this, their Prime Minister, Scott John Morrison, said on Nine Network Television, “I think that’s unfathomable, frankly. We need to protect the world against potential sources of outbreaks of these types of viruses,” Morrison told the Nine Network television station. “It’s happened too many times. I’m totally puzzled by this decision.”
W.H.O. had said in a statement that “wet markets and other food markets do not need to be closed down,” but noted they should be prohibited from selling illegal wildlife for food and authorities should enforce food safety and hygiene regulations, according to The Associated Press.
“COVID-19 has reminded us of the need to ensure that our food markets are well managed and regulated and provide an environment where people can safely trade and buy safe food products being it live, raw or processed.”
At this point, with them knee-deep in Chinese propaganda, their refusal to come to the aid of Taiwan, all due to pressure from Communist China, why are we giving them a nickel?
Morrison wasn’t the only Australian official though to take a swipe at W.H.O. on Tuesday.
“There is a genuine likelihood that this disease arose from a wet market in Wuhan — it’s clear that these are dangerous vectors,” Health Minister Greg Hunt told Australian Broadcasting Corp. “I would imagine that around the world, the vast majority of people would have a similar view.”
What is of more interest, the Democrats, with Corey Booker leading, who screamed that it was racist to call COVID-19, the Chinese Virus is now saying that W.H.O. should force China to shut down their wet markets. I must ask, “If it is racist to call to attention this virus came from China, does it not then come to reason telling them what they can and can’t eat is equally racist?”
I am by no means advocating eating these animals, but find the double standards by the left somewhat puzzling. Who knows, maybe my wife is right when she says, “If they left did not have double or bad standards, they would not have any at all.”
They want on to say:
“Aggressive action toward a global shutdown of live wildlife markets and a ban on the international trade of live wildlife that is not intended for conservation purposes.”
“Live wildlife markets, known as ‘wet’ markets, were linked to the 2003 SARS outbreak and are believed to be the source of the current COVID-19,” Booker and Graham wrote. “As this pandemic continues to threaten the lives of millions, pushes healthcare systems to the breaking point, and devastates economies around the world, it is imperative that we all take action as a global community to protect public health.”
While I agree with what they are saying, their manufactured outrage over identifying the virus from where it came, and then telling these very people they are so protective of that they better change their eating habits or else, just smacks of total incomprehension towards how hypocritical they are.
