Sky News host Rowan Dean says “yesterday’s conspiracy theory” about the Wuhan lab leak theory is now “perfectly feasible and highly likely” despite being previously dismissed as “heresy”.
“Long before anyone else was talking about it secretary Pompeo also told Outsiders about his suspicions that the bat soup story was baloney and the virus had leaked from a Wuhan biotech lab,” Mr Dean said.
“Facebook and social media were soon censoring anyone who dared even suggest the virus came from a Chinese biotech lab, and, of course, the devious American COVID adviser Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, dismissed any such suggestion, presumably because it came from Donald Trump.
“Now, a year later, Facebook and all the lefties have done a massive handbrake U-turn, and what was yesterday’s conspiracy theory is now perfectly feasible and highly likely.
“All these issues we raised on this show months ago now finally being picked up by the mainstream media.”
Mr Dean said the previous US administration suspected the virus had come “not only from a Chinese lab but a Chinese weapons lab”, yet the Biden administration immediately closed down that investigation.
“We also learned this week that one of the first actions of Joe Biden’s presidency was to cancel a special secret US investigation set up late last year by Mike Pompeo to determine whether or not the coronavirus was actually the result of China’s biotech weapons programs,” Mr Dean said.
“You have to ask yourself, why? What were they afraid of? What did they think it might have uncovered? Was Dr Fauci involved in that decision?” Mr Dean said.
“Xi Jinping’s legitimacy and leadership could come into question within China because of this.”
