New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters rebuked a question from a coronavirus skeptic on Friday, joking that the man “obviously got an education in America,” before stating the U.S. had seen approximately 220,000 deaths with eight million cases globally as evidence of the virus.

He went on to tell the man “sorry sunshine, wrong place.”

    Just patronizing because he can't provide scientific evidence. I did not hear the guy claim no virus existed he just asked for an educated analogy. Basically the politicians talk to everyone like children and respond cause I'm your Mother and I said so.

    8 million case's, out of a population of 8 BILLION people? That's like 1/10 of 1% of the total world population. And for this you wonders from down under get to play GESTAPO.

    The guy asking question is obviously very knowledgable in virology. The obtuse politician is not and has nothing to work with, so he resorts to the same tactics used by bureaucrats in such situations.. disrespect, degrade, ridicule and silence.

    I have $1000 for ANYONE that can provide Isolation Data for this FAKE virus.

    Because the PCR tests are calibrated for gene sequences (in this case RNA sequences because SARS-CoV-2 is believed to be a RNA virus), we have to know that these gene snippets are part of the looked-for virus. And to know that, correct isolation and purification of the presumed virus has to be executed.

    Hence, we have asked the science teams of the relevant papers which are referred to in the context of SARS-CoV-2 for proof whether the electron-microscopic shots depicted in their in vitro experiments show purified viruses.

    But not a single team could answer that question with “yes” — and NB., nobody said purification was not a necessary step. We only got answers like “No, we did not obtain an electron micrograph showing the degree of purification” (see below).

    😀 Kudos, Prime Minister. Hear hear. 👏👏👏👏👏 I'm not even offended as an American, because I'm well aware (and embarrassed) that a large segment of our population believes utter nonsense like a flat earth, or SARS-CoV2 being made in a lab. I wish I could shut those people down as swiftly as you did.

    Wow, the New Zealand deputy pm doesn't understand English.

    Ironically this was the EXACT moment Winston Peters lost getting under 5% of the vote, insulting half his fanbase while the other half went to Jacinda Ardern, hope it was worth it insulting 2 real national populists you soyboy sellout.

    Come to the US hospitals and visit these people..you won't make it in though because there are too many infected..we are running out of beds..

    The skeptic, imo, asked valid, acceptable questions. This Deputy PM says that 220,000 deaths in the US this year have (reportedly) been due to COVID-19, but what real proof is there that these deaths were all or even mostly due to COVID-19? The US CDC reported EARLY on that many, if not a high majority, of the coroner reports FALSELY claimed that people who died of other causes, such as heart attacks, cancer, maybe diabetes, f.e., had died from COVID-19 ; and one video report that I watched and listened to was about a motorcyclist who was killed due to a road accident and this was also FALSELY claimed to have been a death due to COVID-19. Deputy PM Winston Peters, with all due respect, is NOT a medical expert and certainly couldn't carry out the medical examinations of deceased people. He's speaking based on BLIND FAITH. And the best way that he had for responding to the skeptic is to provide real, authentic, peer-reviewed proof, but of course he wouldn't think that this'd be IMPORTANT. Or, alternatively, he could say that he doesn't have the actual proof and that he's just going with what msm media reports about what some experts have said ; all while there are plenty of experts who don't support the "mainstream" reporting.

    The proof is already there. 220,000 deaths in America alone, and 8,000,000 worldwide cases, and you want more “proof?” Yeah, sit down “Sunshine”

    And a very dangerous one at that!
