My grandchildren did not cause the coronavirus

Daniel,

Let me assure you, that neither my Chinese son-in-law, nor my half Chinese grandchildren caused this virus. They endured weeks of quarantine before any of us did, along with great loss of business; and they do not expect any bailout package from their government.

In all this, and in all the 20 years that I have known my son-in-law, I have never hears either him or his family complain, much less scapegoat other people. This simply is not a Chinese national characteristic. The Chinese are primarily a practical people: My son-in-law's maxim, after years of politically-caused privations and business failures, is,

"When times get difficult, you adapt".

The people, Jewish and otherwise, who are trying to blame this virus on the Chinese, are playing a dangerous game. As a friend once said, "Every time you point fingers at someone else, you get three fingers pointing back at you."

I have no doubt that God is responsible for this virus; and this is without dispute: The virus didn't just begin with Him; He created it, on purpose; but few people have the courage to come out and say this. I will elaborate on this at length, for anyone who cares to listen.

Meanwhile, bear this in mind: The Communist Party of China follows a WESTERN doctrine, formulated by fallen Jews like Marx and Engels. The traditional CHINESE worldview envisions a hierarchically ordered world, passing through parents, teachers, the emperor and finally, "Heaven". Historically, when calamities on the scale of the coronavirus pandemic would afflict the land, the people assumed that the emperor had lost the favor of Heaven. The emperor was then, of course, overthrown. This is what the current de facto emperor, Chairman Xi, is afraid of; and this is why HE PERSONALLY has been accusing every available scapegoat of causing this epidemic. The Chinese people are not responsible for any of this, outside of local officials showing fear and deference to their superiors (and of course, these officials have also been personally scapegoated).

It came from China. That's what the term "Chinese virus" refers to. No need to read more into it.
