Senate Dems Push WHO Chinese Propaganda Resolution Condemning "Wuhan Virus" as Racist
First the Dems insisted that "Chinese Virus" was racist. That argument was wrong, but at least comprehensible. Now they're going on to insist that the term, "Wuhan Virus" is racist. And leading the charge is Senator Kamala Harris.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D., Calif.) introduced a bill last week that would malign people as racists for using the term "Chinese Virus," connecting it to hate crimes.
Senate Resolution 580 condemns "all forms of Anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID-19," citing "Chinese Virus," "Wuhan Virus," and "Kung Flu" as inaccurate rhetoric perpetuating anti-Asian stigma. The bill calls on public officials to denounce such rhetoric in any form.
The resolution specifically claims that, "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;"
Then it notes that, "in 2015, the WHO issued guidance calling on media outlets, scientists, and national authorities to avoid naming infectious diseases for locations to avoid stigmatizing groups of people;"
I wonder why an organization that is essentially China's hand puppet would have issued such guidance.
Harris, Warren, and the rest of the Dem gang are essentially pushing a resolution that is a set of Communist Chinese talking points meant to censor discussion about the origins of the pandemic.
