The Chinese authorities are clamping down as grieving relatives, along with activists, press the ruling Communist Party for an accounting of what went wrong in Wuhan, the city where the coronavirus killed thousands before spreading to the rest of China and the world.

Probably because the "leadership" here is doubling down on it's alarmingly inept response to this.

Yeah, Chy-Nuh hid it.

But now that we know it's here we're still doing nothing about it.

Pathetic.

We still have that right but those governing us don't want us to have it much longer and tools like you will help them achieve their goals. Go wave your flag but don't pretend you have a clue about anything.

Why are conservatives so naive? This article surprises no one who has two brain cells to rub together (ie, anyone who is not conservative).

Ever heard of the "Great Firewall of China"? Why do you think it exists? Because the Chinese government tightly controls information within China.

What DOES surprise a lot of us here (well, at this point not surprise, but maybe disappoint) is that instead of leading by example, the US government (Republicans and their conservative sycophants) is trying to be more like China.

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Before you condemn the "terrible" things that you think China is doing, you might want to tell your party and leaders to stop doing the EXACT SAME THINGS here.

Oh... but I forgot. It is not about intelligent conversation. It is just about slamming China to distract from the utter failures of the conservatives in this country in responding to this crisis. Never mind. Continue on. Nothing to see here.

Good luck to the Chinese families who are seeking justice.

I wonder whether Americans will sue the Trump Administration for insisting this was all nothing more than a hoax.

Why do you despicables always deflect on stories about communist China?

Well Willowby, the reason we look at these stories is so we can see these things in America and stop them before we become China. Are you able to understand that?

Quite frankly, it's scary to see how similar Chinese and American flavors of repression are.
