The CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus shutdown, which is still causing so much damage in many countries, could be attributed to the propaganda strategy of the CCP, in order to outsmart its global competitors, warns researcher and lawyer Michael P. Senger.

For Senger, the CCP’s strategy was to destroy the economies of competing countries, and lists a series of facts in support of his theory, according to Summit News of Sept. 28. 

To begin with, Senger noted that the mortality rate caused by the CCP Virus is relatively low.

He then described that the CCP had armies of Twitter accounts, managed by bots, driving the first closures in countries like Italy. 

Reinforcing this strategy, the CCP heavily criticized countries that opposed the closure model it imposed in Wuhan, the first place in China to report the disease. 

Another element of the aggressive propaganda campaign was a series of videos showing, through social media, Chinese people collapsing in the streets, some of which seemed overacted. 

The CCP locked up many millions of people, claiming that only 4,634 had died, and by March 19 it declared that its model of closure had been successful because the virus cases originating in the country had disappeared. 

From that point on, and with the support of the WHO, hysteria was unleashed that led to the closure of many countries, despite all the negative consequences of those measures. 

Additionally, the propaganda departments of the CCP strongly criticized countries that opted for other alternatives, such as “herd immunity.”

Sweden was one of them, and the facts show that its results were far superior to those of other European countries, without having to close its economy or drastically isolate its population. 

Senger said that the results that the leader Xi Jinping wanted took place on Chinese territory.

“But the fact that authoritarian regimes always lie does not give them a right to spread deadly lies to the rest of the world, especially by clandestine means,” said Senger, according to his article in Tablet magazine. 

U.S. President Donald Trump has been very clear in calling on the CCP for failing to give a timely warning and for not stopping the spread of the virus around the world.

“Make no mistake, we hold China fully responsible for concealing the virus and unleashing it upon the world. They could have stopped it, they should have stopped it,” said Trump, according to Express UK.

Such is the conviction of the threat the CCP poses to the United States that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the creation of a global coalition against the CCP.

“Now we’ve started to build this global coalition to push them back,” Pompeo said.

He added, “I have traveled the world making sure that every nation understands that this is not an issue between the United States and China. 

“This is a challenge to make sure that the next century is not the century of China, not the century ruled by repressive authoritarian regimes, but rather by regimes that believe in the rule of law and orderly freedom and national sovereignty as their basic foundations,” Pompeo told Fox News on Sept. 27.
