To the Left, everything is Racist.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says it is racist if you don't want to eat Chinese food right now. Forget about the fact that all restaurants are hurting because Americans are afraid to go out to eat. It MUST be racist for Chinese food restaurants to be suffering from the same downturn...
But a new narrative is forming in the Fake News. They are now claiming that it is racist to call COVID-19 the "Wuhan Virus" or "Wuhan Flu" or "Chinese Coronavirus.
Here is a hot take from Rep. Ilhan Omar (R-MN), the brother-lover.
Like always, Omar is completely wrong. It is common for viruses to be named after the parts of the world where they originate. For example, when another coronavirus was discovered in the Middle East in 2012, it was named Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). The influenza outbreak of 1918 was called the "Spanish Flu." The Ebola Virus is named after the Ebola River in the Congo... But now, it is apparently racist to point out that the novel coronavirus originated in China...
Here's the thing, though. Just a couple of weeks ago, the mainstream media was using these names. They were calling COVID-19 the "Wuhan Virus." It was only after Republicans started using the name that it became branded as "racist."
The amazing thing is that the disease is actually called the Wuhan Virus inside of China.
So, it's not racist when the Chinese use the term... It's not racist when the mainstream media uses the term... But the minute the words leave a Conservative's mouth, it is branded as xenophobic and racist?
Give me a break...
