Megyn Kelly Freaks Out on Biden Admin: ‘These F*ckers Have Lied to Us for Long Enough!’
This site is going to provide an entirely new service. We have decided that the talk about “civil war” and racial animosity on the MAGA Right, is scary enough that it simply must be monitored, and we’re about to start at a level we’d never otherwise consider. We are going to monitor Brietbart… so you don’t have to. Note, we are not giving them an audience, they have a huge audience.
We want our readers to understand the more subtle things driving the MAGA mind.
To that end, we bring back Megyn Kelly, featured in a prominent Brietbart article cleverly titled “Those fckers have lied to us long enough on COVID origin.” This is a fascinating argument because the growing evidence coming out (it is nowhere near definitive), leading to the possibility that this virus leaked from a Wuhan lab has been brought to us by the… CDC. They are bad liars. Regardless, Kelly had her target:
Kelly’s criticisms centered on EcoHealth Alliance President Peter Daszak, a zoologist who worked with the Wuhan Institute of Virology and reportedly used U.S. government grants for gain-of-function research.

Stop. Stop. Stop. Hang on, before we go further. People inside and outside the government use grants all over the world, and as far as Kelly knows, a gain of function test is a physical therapy goal after surgery, never mind why it would be studied. We are nearly certain that it was not studied in order to unleash a global pandemic;
“Why wouldn’t the board investigate him? I mean, the obvious answer is because they were in on that because they knew, because they can’t fire Peter Daszak because they’ll go down with him. So who’s going to investigate the board? I don’t think they will get rid of him, right? If their hands are dirty, they’re not going to get rid of him. So what are our options? Because this guy clearly should not be staying in his post.”
Kelly doesn’t mention which board. She only knows that there appears to be a conflict of interest. Perhaps there is, and perhaps that’s because the only people on earth who could understand what happened are the very same people who are experts who advise the U.S. government.
We can’t have the EcoHealth Alliance overseeing Peter Daszak because it doesn’t work. None of these organizations are self-correcting. The fact that it’s U.S. taxpayer money means that we actually do have an out here. Which is to get Congress and the administration involved because that’s your taxpayer money, my taxpayer money. And there’s no accountability. There’s no transparency, even in the biggest crisis in the world.
Well, true, but we can’t have Mike Pompeo policing who is doing what because he thinks a gain of function test is a new diet.
One thing about Megyn Kelly and the Breitbart folks, they are more than ready to jump to conclusions. They are acting as though all of this has been proven. It has not. What has happened is that the Wuhan lab theory has gained credibility, to the point that it’s now very seriously considered. But again, we know this only because the CDC has continued to investigate the origins and – transparently – said, it looks like it may be a lab leak, we have found some weird stuff…”
What the Breitbart people will not say is that when Trump blamed China, he did so in order to get anyone and everyone angry at China instead of focusing on the horrific results here. With respect to studying the virus’s origins, Trump was plainly shooting from the hip, as if he personally knew. This is the guy who knew masks didn’t do much and then nearly died of COVID.
The only other thing to add is that there is only so much time available to stop an epidemic in its tracks and that is at the beginning. The CDC always knew it had time to figure out the origin, which would be an extremely complicated endeavor. It was far more important study as to how to fight the epidemic in order to stay alive, masks, vaccines, all that. The virus would still be there later.
NO one at Breitbart wants to read, “Damn, we were wrong about that whole mask and virus thing, look at us, passing 700,000 dead, and – for a time, before the vaccine, one of the world’s leaders in deaths per million.” (Now that WE have the vaccine while other countries do not, our share per million has gone way down).
Thus it is that Breitbart and the Right finds itself to be the “winner,” despite the fact that A) Nothing is proven yet, B) the CDC was concentrating on saving lives, C) Trump guessed at the time in order to increase anger at China, D) If a mistake was made and there was a cover-up, the CDC is the department providing the data!
In other words, typical Right Wing, and – point of order, we’ve not been fcking lied to. Science does what science does, continue to learn as more as more science is done. But since they don’t believe in science, it’s sort of a lost cause.
