CDC Chief Got Assassination Threats For Talking About Wuhan Leak

( The former director of the Centers for Disease Control Robert Redfield revealed in an interview on Thursday that he received death threats from scientists for simply suggesting that the COVID-19 likely came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Speaking to Vanity Fair, Redfield revealed the disgusting backlash he received after telling CNN in March that he believes that the “most likely etiology of this pathogen in Wuhan was from a laboratory.”

He said that after saying the virus likely escaped from the laboratory – a conclusion that even the Democrats are being forced to slowly come to – he was “threatened and ostracized.”

Redfield said that he expected a backlash to come from politicians, but he didn’t expect it to come from scientists.

You may remember the early days of the COVID pandemic when claiming that the virus likely came from the Wuhan laboratory was considered a conspiracy theory. Investment and market blog ZeroHedge was one of the first outlets to be silenced for making the connection, being banned from Twitter for publishing an article detailing the likelihood that the virus escaped from the Wuhan lab.

ZeroHedge was eventually allowed back onto the platform, however, and Facebook only last month reversed its policy of banning posts suggesting the virus was manmade or came from a lab.

It seems that ever since President Donald Trump left office, the media and the Democrats are suddenly happy to entertain the possibility that it may have come from a laboratory…

They’re not admitting Trump was right, though.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is currently I the middle of a media storm and controversy over his flip-flopping over COVID-19 and its origins after thousands of his emails were released following a Freedom of Information Act request.

If former CDC director Robert Redfield really received death threats for his assertion, it demonstrates that people either high up in the government or in public health and scientific bodies have a vested interest in keeping the origins of the COVID-19 virus quiet…and that’s terrifying.
