There was a rash of virulent flu-like symptoms in some parts of the US in September/October last year right before the US military had war games in Wuhan province ... And then something similar happened in November in Wuhan (Coronavirus) which took the people by storm over there...

Could it be that it was a particular strain of Corona from the US that mutated when introduced into China and that THAT is the origin of COVID-19?

Yes, I did. That’s why I brought it up :p
Technically, it was only called Spanish Flu here in the US... I believe it was called something else in other parts of the world since Spain wasn't the origin of that particular strain of the flu.

Anime waifu panty shots are basically the same thing as paintings of the french baroque masters, if you think about it.

The common nomenclature is Spanish Flu in English speaking countries. I don't care what it is called elsewhere. You don't go about renaming historical incidents in the name of fleeting twitter opinion.

My point is is that Spain wasn't the origin of that strain of the flu. That's all. The nomenclature was built off misleading information at that time.

The guy who was on rogan said they can basically carbon date a virus and saw that it jumped from animal to human in November in Wuhan

Yes absolutely. It was dropped into a bowl of mutated bar stew.

I appreciate posters like you
Leftist news sources are bought and paid for by the CCP. Don’t believe a word they say during this crisis. There is absolutely no doubt that this virus originated in China. Russian flu, Spanish flu, SARS, swine flu, bird flu, H1N1, these all came from China. The problem is cultural as they have incredibly poor hygiene standards stemming from the decades of poverty following Mao’s Great Leap Forward. Basically anything that moved had to be eaten because the alternative was starvation. This is compounded by the saving face culture stemming from the Century of Humiliation in which China lost every war they engaged in. They do not share our uniquely Western values of sovereignty of the individual and truth above Party. They believe in the complete opposite: Party above truth and sovereignty of the group. Did you watch HBO’s Chernobyl last year? It captured very well the dangers and systemic failures of the communist Party-as-god ideology.

China has evolved rapidly in the last 30 years in an economic sense thanks to subjecting their people to what is tantamount to slave labour, along with complicit Western corporations who simply followed the path of least resistance, however cultural evolution lags behind. We are essentially dealing with an economic superpower (at least for now) with third world culture. It has been a global disaster waiting to happen as predicted by the 2007 journal article that Deep linked above. If there is one lesson to take from this, it is that groups of people are not equal on the basis of culture. Only the immutable characteristics (race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.) should be treated as equal and even then the equality should only be applied at the individual level on the basis of legal rights. If we in the West cannot dispel this mentally crippling equality dogma, we will continue to sell ourselves out and allow China to dominate the world.

What's hilarious is the Chinese have a term mocking White liberals. Now they are capitalizing off them.

Capitolizing off of white guilt has been going on for quite some time. Many people know that the weekend white warriors who want to appear progressive are suckers for money and clicks. Rule of thumb, if you confident that you are an ethical and just person, you don't have to virtue signal it. Those brand of liberals are clowns. Hope they figure it out someday.

I hope everyone is being careful out there.

A lot of truth here.
