Just when you thought the mainstream media couldn’t get any more ridiculous, they have to go and pull something like this.

In what appears to be a desperate move to distance blame for COVID-19 from China, The New York Times just released a ridiculous op-ed where they’re now blaming Christian conservatives for the virus.

Unbelievable.

And now this trope has bubbled to the very top, to the opinion pages of the New York Times.

“The Road to Coronavirus Hell Was Paved by Evangelicals,” a New York Times article tells us in the headline.

The piece is by Katherine Stewart, an author whose recent book fits in a broad category of paranoid literature that is basically the Left’s version of the “Sharia law is coming” conspiracy theory. Hers is about the 1000th book in the past 20 years to warn that America is about to become a theocracy.

“Trump’s response to the pandemic has been haunted by the science denialism of his ultraconservative religious allies,” the subheadline reads.

“Science Denialism!”

“Ultraconservative religious!”

Perfect catchphrases!

But the giveaway is the weasel phrase there: “haunted by.” She’s trying to imply causality that she knows she cannot assert.

She’s trying to imply that evangelical conservatives caused this plague, even though it began in Wuhan, China, where less than 3 percent of the country is Christian. [Wasington Examiner]

The media just loves throwing Christians and conservatives under the bus whenever it’s convenient for them.

But, of course, they’ll fight to defend China, the country that gave us this virus.
