Someone on Twitter said this video deserves endless retweets and that is the truth. Rep. Mo Brooks absolutely destroys a Yahoo News reporter for suggesting that the comments made by Marjorie Taylor Greene on the Coronavirus, calling it the “Chinese virus” and asking if it could have been a “bioweapon”, could result in more violence against Chinese-Americans:
Here’s what Brooks said:
Let’s be real clear about something. I’m very disturbed that you would even ask that kind of question. Chinese-Americans are not necessarily members of the Chinese Communist Party. Understand that the Chinese Communist Party rejects virtually every provision in what is known as our bill of rights. Recognize that the Chinese Communist Party does not believe in the kind of republic that we believe in. And for you to associate the Chinese Communist Party with Chinese-Americans, as you have done, I would submit is egregious and wrong.
With respect to bioweapons, MTG asked a really good question. I serve on the House Armed Services Committee and on the Science, Space and Technology Committee. Ask yourself America this question. When we talk about ‘gain of function’, let’s be a little bit more specific about what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about a dangerous virus being changed so that it is much more communicable and people are much more likely to get it and/or it becomes much more deadly. Now why would any country, why would any country do that with a virus, to make it more contagious and make it more deadly if not for militarization purposes? And if you look at the Chinese Communist Party’s background and its relationship with the military, it leads you but to one logical conclusion.
BOOM! First he truth bombs this leftist reporter on how he’s asking a racist question while trying to dunk on MTG, and then vociferously defends the premise that this could have easily been a bioweapon. That was excellent.
