USA Today has chided President Trump for his use of the term “Chinese Virus.”
WASHINGTON – After lawmakers, community advocates and health experts advised against attaching a location to the coronavirus pandemic, President Donald Trump has continued to refer to it as “Chinese virus,” causing many to double down on their calls to avoid prejudice.
He used the phrase again in several tweets Wednesday morning. In one post addressing Americans laid off because of the virus’ economic impact, he wrote, “The onslaught of the Chinese Virus is not your fault!”
Asked about his continued use of the phrase during a coronavirus task force briefing on Tuesday, Trump said China had been sowing misinformation about the virus’ origins, and “rather than having an argument, I said I have to call it where it came from; it did come from China.”
Funny how the Establishment Left gets upset when we openly recognize the source of a virus that’s adversely affecting us all – yet it has no compunctions about blaming all white people for the sins (real or imagined) of some whites generations ago. When it comes to non-white groups, they’re suddenly worried about “stigmatizing groups of people.”
This is even more absurd when we read, in the same article, that the Congressional Black Caucus, and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus have joined other advocacy groups in telling us to refrain from using the term “Chinese Virus.”
So far, almost all known incidents of virus-related attacks on Asians have been perpetrated by blacks or Hispanics. Very few were perpetrated by whites. Most of the news reports do not tell us the race of the perpetrators – but they’re quick to remind us that “diversity is our greatest strength.” Personally, I don’t consider it a strength when white taxpayers are forced to pay for police work and prosecution when blacks and Hispanics attack Asians in America. Perhaps Mediagov now has a different definition of “strength.”
As for me, I’ve known some very nice Chinese people, and I’ve been to China. China is a vast country, with many different cultures, languages and histories. But it’s also the source of some messed-up practices.
Right now, I’m not very keen on China. It’s a place where people kill their baby daughters, then scour the world for endangered species – so they can kill them (or have Africans do the killing), and use the body parts as aphrodisiacs, now and then releasing deadly viruses upon the rest of the world. The Chinese Communist Party, which rules China, is probably the most dangerous governmental organization in the world.
I don’t condone attacking random Chinese people, but China as a whole has a lot to answer for right now. Through their evil government, and some cultural practices, which happen to be disgusting, China has earned the distinction of having its name attached to this virus.
