RIP Dr. Li Wenliang
Updated: Apr 26
Way, way back in December of 2019, Dr. Li Wenliang went to social media and reported a "SARS-like" virus at a Wuhan Seafood Market.
Once he witnessed the outbreak, he didn't run like the scientists in The Stand, he stayed and fought the virus. Even as he dedicated his life to his patients, the government accused Wenliang of spreading fake news and was reprimanded by Chinese Police.
I will bet you that the stress of having the Chinese Government looking over his shoulder while putting in grueling, joyless hours fighting the coming plague helped contribute to his death today. Dr. Li Wenliang spoke the truth and he was harassed by his own government.
Dr. Li Wenliang was a martyr for Free Speech.
Even as I write these sentences, there are rumblings that the Chinese Government are burning bodies 24/7 in Wuhan. The Chinese Government denies such outlandish claims.....
China is also angered by the flag below:
Maybe if the Chinese Government told the truth, they wouldn't be inundated with Flu Flags.
