Eh, they were already edging towards it previously, some democrats just followed the party line this time around. Reminder that USians were always easy to propagandize considering post 9-11 Bush had 90% approval ratings.

I’m not convinced it came from a lab. But the idea of it coming from a lab is not a conspiracy theory. It’s only a conspiracy theory if you think it was released on purpose.

This was already heavily debunked last year. Now that Biden supports it, you have Wapo changing the name of an article last week, originally written in february of last year from : “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus conspiracy theory that was already debunked” to “Tom Cotton keeps repeating a coronavirus fringe theory that scientists have disputed.”

FB has also reversed its policy of removing posts pushing this conspiracy theory.

Meanwhile, the US has admitted to releasing these kinds of viruses on their enemies, as recently as the 1970s:

  • In 1971, A CIA operative told a reporter he delivered a strain of the African Swine Fever virus from an army base in the Canal Zone to anti-Castro Cubans. An outbreak of the disease then occurred in Cuba, resulting in the slaughter of 500,000 pigs to prevent a nationwide animal epidemic. It was labeled the “most alarming event” of 1971 by the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization.1

I’m just being pedantic about words. Because saying even a plurality of Democrats believe in lab leak conspiracy theory by definition implies they believe that a conspiracy has occurred or is occurring, when I think its far more likely in my experience that these people will follow the mainstream liberal news narrative that scientists and media did a little “oopsy woopsy” on the fact reporting.

why do you think that it is not a possibility?

Cause as we all know diseases are all man-made and do not occur in nature.

Yep, ofc came from a lab, Fort Detrick.

If a democrat parroted this Wuhan Lab theory a year ago they would be considered a lunatic racist nutjob. Now that, Biden is in power it’s all poggers.

i don’t care about u.s. politicians fighting each other.

i’m interested in facts. from the day one i’m considering lab leak as probable origin of the virus. there is too much propaganda from various world’s powers to cancel any possibility.

so are the fascists screaming Chyna Chyna Chyna.

also, you are really exaggerating foreign power influence. WaPo (Bezos owned) recently published the Wuhan Lab Leak “theory” after it going down in popularity for some time… Most of the Wuhan Lab prop is from American social media/American news.

There isn’t even anywhere close to enough belief in the counter Fort Detrick conspiracy when compared to Wuhan lab.

In fact if you google “natural origins covid 19” you are presented with right wing outlets like NYPost and US Funded outlets like VOA claiming it originated in Wuhan lab.

it was down for a while because they (libs) were afraid to say exactly same thing as trump did.

again - it’s just common sense, i had this idea before any american said so.

if you make your opinion on a matter by supporting/denying all infos from some particular group - that’s not seeking the truth.

you are making your opinion by going full both sides centrist going “maybe china accidentally or purposefully leaked it”.

you are trying to prove something that can’t be proven. Just look at some of the headlines

“UK spies believe the theory that COVID-19 escaped from a Wuhan lab is ‘plausible’ and are trying to recruit darknet sources as they investigate it, says report”

Kuba glowing. I wonder if they are the downvoter

Does this mean Lemmygrad has made it as a site?

What do you mean by probable?
