A group of amateur Internet gumshoes is being credited for a lot of the work that made mainstream scientists and the mainstream media acknowledge the possibility of the lab leak theory after months of skepticism and ridicule. Of course, their skepticism was because former President Donald Trump would mention it and they hated him so much that anything he was right about went against their collective goal of getting him out of office. Maggie Haberman, a New York Times hack, and others have said they did not take the theory seriously because Trump was the one who said it. Anyone with a three-digit IQ knows they’re full of boloney because even if their childish reasoning was true they still should have at least investigated it, and they didn’t. It was only one of the biggest stories in a hundred years and they intentionally kept it in the dark.
The group, the Decentralized Radical Autonomous Search Team Investigating COVID-19, or DRASTIC, received high praises from researchers who were working on COVID-19.
Alina Chan, an MIT and Harvard researcher took to social media to give props.
“Without the work done by the DRASTIC team, I don’t really know where we would be today with the origins of covid-19.
Because what they have accomplished collectively is not something scientists can do. It’s more similar to intelligence gathering.”

The team examined the evidence, or what was available at the time, for months in order to test statements made by Shi Zhengli, the Wuhan Institute of Virology director, and other people who mocked the possibility of the lab leak theory calling it misinformation.
A feature story in Newsweek explains how DRASTIC debunked numerous attempts by the Chinese government and the Wuhan lab to bury and cover-up evidence that supports the theory that the coronavirus could have come from a laboratory leak. After all, the Chinese government said it came from a bat at a wet market, the type of bat not found within 900 kilometers of Wuhan.
“Thanks to DRASTIC, we now know that the Wuhan Institute of Virology had an extensive collection of coronaviruses gathered over many years of foraging in the bat caves, and that many of them—including the closest known relative to the pandemic virus, SARS-CoV-2—came from a mineshaft where three men died from a suspected SARS-like disease in 2012.
We know that the WIV was actively working with these viruses, using inadequate safety protocols, in ways that could have triggered the pandemic, and that the lab and Chinese authorities have gone to great lengths to conceal these activities. We know that the first cases appeared weeks before the outbreak at the Huanan wet market that was once thought to be ground zero.”
A young man from eastern India, a member of DRASTIC, who goes by the handle The Seeker on social media was able to discover that data on a database from China’s Ministry of Science and Technology proved that researchers from the Wuhan lab were lying about some minors who died from getting a disease like a coronavirus.
This whole thing is an education in how a false narrative can be cultivated by media types who convey the way they want their leftists in science to go with said narrative all for political reasons and they finally get nailed on the lies by independent groups like the members of DRASTIC come along and connect all the dots that the news media and scientists should have done and intentionally didn’t.
How do you trust science when the Left has destroyed it with progressive nonsense? The Wuhan lab theory is misinformation, a man putting on a dress and identifying as a woman is a real woman, white people are born racist. None of what they tell us is real science, but they are the ones in charge. People need to step up and point out that they’re lying to us. It will continue until we push back.
