Senate Dems Put Forth Resolution To Deem Coronavirus Term ‘Chinese Virus’ Racist

Published

The political correctness police who work within the United States Senate is working hard to take trivial, non-important matters, and blow them up into a big deal, the old “making a mountain out of a molehill” line of thinking, concerning terms used to refer to the coronavirus.

California Sen. Kamala Harris, a failed Democratic presidential candidate, along with several of her party colleagues, have put forth a resolution to condemn terms for the coronavirus like “Chinese virus” as racist. Yes, that’s right. If you dare to label this virus after the location from which it came, you will be given your official racist identification card to mark you for public shaming.

That’s sarcasm, of course, but hey, they might take it as a suggestion.

President Trump and many others have used the terms “Wuhan Virus” and “Chinese Virus” to describe the coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 5 million people worldwide. In a Wednesday Senate resolution co-sponsored by Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and 23 other Democratic senators, lawmakers called on the chamber to formally condemn the terms “Wuhan Virus,” “Chineses Virus,” and “Kung-Flu” as racist.

“The use of anti-Asian terminology and rhetoric related to COVID–19, such as the ‘Chinese Virus,’ ‘Wuhan Virus,’ and ‘Kung-flu,’ have perpetuated anti-Asian stigma,” the bill stated. “Since January 2020, there has been a dramatic increase in reports of hate crimes and incidents against those of Asian descent.”

The legislation in question points to a study that has found 400 instances of what they call “anti-Asian discrimination” directly related to the coronavirus pandemic between Feb. 9, 2020 and March 7, 2020. The bill goes on to cite the WHO’s condemnation of the virus’s location as a label for the sickness.

And yet no one has a problem with the Spanish Flu? You’d think they’d want to retroactively remove that term and cleanse it from history so as not to offend anyone of that heritage. Guess not.

They seem pretty selective in who they want to attack regarding the usage of this term. Pretty much the only people who use it are Trump supporters, or so they claim. So couldn’t this whole resolution be seen as yet another attack on the president and his base?

If some folks have truly been saying racist things to Chinese folk over this virus, then those people are morons of the highest order. The individuals responsible for the Chinese virus are not the citizens of that country, but their communist leadership. Put the blame where it truly belongs.

Save conservative media!

Still want to let criminals out?

Democrat policies made this unfortunate story possible. Liberal “leaders” won’t take any of the blame, though. Sure, the only person to commit a criminal act was Ibrahim Bouaichi, but he shouldn’t have been released from jail in the first place. Are Dems still cool with freeing bad people? From TDW: A Maryland man being held in a Virginia prison on rape charges was released over coronavirus concerns, then allegedly murdered his accuser, according to police. Police tracked down and found Ibrahim Bouaichi, 33, in Prince George’s County, Maryland, on Wednesday. Authorities sought Bouaichi in connection with the death of Karla Dominguez, who had accused Bouaichi of rape and testified against him in October, according to The Washington Post. CONTINUED: When police located Bouaichi, he fled in his car until he crashed. Police moving to arrest him found that he had apparently shot himself. Bouaichi remained in critical condition on Thursday. Partly on Dominguez’s testimony, Bouaichi was indicted on five felony charges of rape, sodomy, strangulation, abduction, and burglary. Bouaichi was held without bail in an Alexandria prison facility until April 9, when Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins ordered his release on a $25,000 bond.

Rashida Tlaib Forced to Repay Campaign Nearly $11,000 for Illegal Disbursements to Herself

Busted.

If Rashida Tlaib was a Republican and got caught illegal distributing funds from a campaign, there would be calls for her immediate resignation. But she’s a Democrat – so it’s all good! From Fox News: Rep. Rashida Tlaib has been ordered to repay $10,800 to her campaign committee to account for the salary she had paid herself from her campaign coffers after she had been elected to Congress in 2018. The bipartisan House Ethics Committee found the Michigan Democrat’s violation “was one of bad timing and not ill intent.” The committee ordered her to pay $10,800 of the $17,500 she received from her campaign in 2018. Congressional candidates are allowed to draw paychecks from their campaigns, but payments are only allowed during an active candidacy. Continued: “The committee did not find that she sought to unjustly enrich herself by receiving the campaign funds at issue,” the committee wrote Friday. “Indeed, during her campaign, Representative Tlaib received a conservative amount of campaign funds, well below the legal threshold for the maximum amount of salary she was eligible to receive; these payments allowed her to forego her salary from her full-time employment so that she could fully participate in campaign activities.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1245428215751065602?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245428215751065602&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fbrettt-3136%2F2020%2F04%2F01%2Frep-rashida-tlaib-reminds-us-the-covid-19-pandemic-is-exposing-structural-racism-in-the-us%2F REACTIONS:
