Libs minds blown.
“It seems ages ago now, but there was a time in which a comedy show guided a substantial portion of our country’s political debate. “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart cast a spotlight on the absurdities of modern politics like nobody before or since, sharply criticizing the Iraq War, Fox News and the rest of the media, among other pet causes — often with a demeanor that practically screamed, “Are you serious with this stuff?”
Stewart rekindled that posture Monday night in a segment that seems like a potential inflection point in the debate over the coronavirus’s origins.
Appearing on the CBS late-night show of his former Comedy Central buddy Stephen Colbert, Stewart launched into an animated bit, promoting the coronavirus lab leak theory.
“I think we owe a great debt of gratitude to science. Science has, in many ways, helped ease the suffering of this pandemic,” Stewart said, before adding with emphasis, “which was more than likely caused by science.” …”
Do we even need to know the answer?
Should these scientists be going into caves to collect 15,000 samples of novel bat coronaviruses and taking them to a lab with a biosecurity level of your local dentist office which is located in a city larger than New York City where inexperienced lab workers experiment on these viruses in order to create frankenstein chimeric viruses that are more infectious to humans? What could possibly go wrong?
At a minimum, this kind of research should be banned as it was in this country until shortly before the Trump inauguration. It should also be banned in China. Even if that is not what happened this time, the policy implication of this is banning gain of function research.
Note: The world’s militaries will undoubtedly continue to work on this kind of research in secret. They are already creating Terminator-style robotic soldiers.
