So you just know the parade of screwball theories on the raging “aporkalypse” swine flu will involve blaming China sooner or later. ‘Cuz China be shady and unscrupulous! And we knows this how? Because Fox News sez they put lead in toys and poison in milk products and shit, so why wouldn’t China be behind this latest paranoia outbreak?
Peep this op-ed by Barbara Hollingsworth from the Washington Examiner:
“A US/Chinese venture capital firm stands to benefit financially from a swine flu pandemic…private US/Chinese venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers (KPCB)… launched a $200 million Pandemic Bio Defense Fund in 2006. The firm’s portfolio includes eight pandemic and bio defense firms. Two of them, Novavax and Bio Defense, are publicly traded.
On Friday, their stock jumped at news of the swine flu outbreak in Mexico. Novavax (up 75 percent) had already contacted the Centers for Disease Control offering to help with the crisis.”
Hollingsworthless also somehow makes the leap of connecting swine flu to Al Gore:
“Guess who’s a partner at KPCB? Al Gore, who also chairs the Alliance for Climate Protection…KPCB also has a “green” investment collaboration with Generation Investment Management, which Gore also co-founded…”
“Selling a boatload of swine flu vaccine to panicked government officials in Mexico, the United States and Canada would raise a lot of capital…Of course, this highly unlikely link between Al Gore, his joint private equity venture with the Chinese, and the outbreak of swine flu in Mexico and the U.S. could just be one of those strange coincidences. But if I were one of the Army’s CID people, I’d look into it.”
Interesting. Okay then, how about AIDS in Africa and US pharmeceutical companies? Crack cocaine in black communities in the ’80s, the “War on Drugs”, and the CIA? Strange coincidences? I’d look into it.
Also, with SARS and swine flu, nationalistic mofos got their panties in a wad for “securing our borders” aka keeping out dirty foreigners and their diseases. But when mad cow disease was having a ragin’ party all up in Canada and Europe, folks didn’t seem too concerned about containing immigration from our neighbors to the north and across the pond. Thinly-veiled racism? I’d check into that booshit too.
