Is virus a conspiracy? Virus exists, but reader says panic is overblown

To the editor:

Is the virus a conspiracy theory?

Would you like to hear a conspiracy theory about the China virus? Just think. President Trump has a 40 percent base that loves him, he is an incumbent president with a great economy, and they usually get re-elected.

The mainstream media hates Trump, so does the other 40 percent of our country. That includes, but is not limited to, NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN and MSNBC.

He will be re-elected despite that fact. The 20 percent in the middle vote with logic, and they see what has happened under President Trump.

So along comes the China virus. Oh by the way, viruses are usually named after their country or city or origin. I will give you one example: Lyme disease, which was named after Lyme, Connecticut. You can look the others up.

The 40 percent that hates President Trump, the mainstream media and the Dems must get rid of him. Spying on him didn’t work, the Mueller hoax didn’t work, the fake Russian dossier didn’t work and impeachment didn’t work…. Time to panic. Now to quote the Obama administration, “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” We have the China virus, so let’s create a panic and crash the economy. That will get rid of him. It worked for my retirement, I lost 30 percent.

The virus is real, the panic it created may not be necessary.

Ridiculous, you say. Remember back to 2009 and the swine flu or H1N1. It affected 61 million people in the US and it killed 13,000 in our country.

Remember the big panic? Oh yeah, there was none. Why, you ask? President Obama was in charge and all of the media loved him, hence no panic, no mass closings, no stock market crash. You could buy toilet paper and go out to eat.

Think about it while you are stuck at home or in line to buy TP. Was this necessary?
