The first time, and every other time, I read about the possibility was not in conservative media so I don't know about the 'origin' of that information, just that it is there and that trustworthy media has reported on it, as a possibility, nothing more. Right wingers spreading this widely is not proof for a conspiracy, it just shows that right wingers eat that shit up because they can shift the blame for failures at home even more to China. It sound like a likely scenario, I will not deny that, nor did I ever say it couldn't be made up or that it wasn't overblown following an agenda. If you have solid evidence that the whole origin of this is a right wing conspiracy I will gladly accept that and will have learnt something new. Right now it rather looks to me like there was a slight chance of a lab outbreak and of course conservatives would love to spread that. I still think I don't deserve any shit for anything I said. Just because it is indeed a strategy which a lot of Republicans for example follow, "Just asking questions", insane questions, it shouldn't be prohibited to discuss possibilities instead of dismissing them. Doing so because my political enemy might profit isn't the right way either, imo. I'm also not a lab worker but it doesn't sound as crazy as you make it sound tbh.
