warning: this might be Chinese propaganda:
“Fort Detrick, more like a witch’s cauldron. How many plots came out of your labs? How many dead bodies hanging a tag? What you’re hiding, open the door to Fort Detrick. Cause transparency is your favorite. OK, great. America first. We want, want the truth.”
A rap song created by Chinese rappers went viral on Wednesday due to its sharp lyrics taking aim at the Fort Detrick lab.
“Open the Door to Fort Detrick” was written by Chinese rap group Tianfu Shibian, or CD REV, from Chengdu, Southwest China’s Sichuan Province. In the song, the band urges the US government to open the Fort Detrick lab to an international investigation into the origins of COVID-19.
The lyrics in the rap song soon captured the attention of many netizens in China after the music video was reposted by Chinese media outlets such as the Xinhua News Agency on Sina Weibo. In comments under the video, Sina Weibo users called for an investigation into the Fort Detrick lab to be carried out as soon as possible, adding that the lab should cooperate if it is not trying to hide anything.
“We want the truth. Open the door to Fort Detrick. Shed light on tightly held secret. When things are stalemated, let the judges in, medical pros, they are ready for this,” the song’s lyrics go.
“It was just a sudden feeling. I felt so angry and thought we have to rap it out,” Wang Zixin, one of the members of CD REV, told the Global Times, explaining how discussion on social media that the US was not allowing an investigation into Fort Detrick inspired the group to speak out through song.
On August 11, Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson for China’s Foreign Ministry, forwarded the music video on Twitter, where the video has earned more than 18,000 views.
The band remarked that having such a high ranking official take notice of their song was a very proud moment for them.
“I thought he was someone who never listened to rap music, I felt interdimensional.”
A Twitter user commented under Zhao’s tweet, saying that “For the benefit of all mankind, we strongly urge the WHO to investigate Fort Detrick in the United States and the US military biological laboratories all over the world.”
It seems like if the US army as psy ops can blast AC/DC at Muslims fighters in Iraq that the Chinese government can use rap music and rappers posing as hipsters but are actually agents to try to convince people that we and not they are to blame for the coronavirus.
