The Chinese government would be so proud of Senate Democrats like Kamala Harris and Big Chief Elizabeth Warren, who have introduced legislation that would deem terms like ‘Chinese virus’ as racist:
DC EXAMINER – California Sen. Kamala Harris and several other Senate Democrats introduced a resolution condemning COVID-19 virus nicknames such as the “Chinese virus” as racist.
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 condemn the terms 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 resolution stated. “Since January 2020, there has been a dramatic increase in reports of hate crimes and incidents against those of Asian descent.”
The resolution notes that one study found 400 instances of anti-Asian discrimination related to the pandemic between Feb. 9, 2020, and March 7, 2020. The resolution also cited the World Health Organization’s condemnation of using the virus’s location as a name.
The resolution “condemns all manifestations or expressions of racism, xenophobia, discrimination, anti-Asian sentiment, scapegoating, and ethnic or religious intolerance” while asking that federal authorities thoroughly investigate any instances of hate crimes against Asian Americans.
While Team Nancy is using the pandemic as an excuse to push her hard-left liberal agenda, Team Schumer is busy trying to appease the Chinese government.
The funny thing is I haven’t heard Trump use the term ‘Chinese virus’ in quite a while. And when he did use it he made clear it was in response to China trying to blame our military for spreading the coronavirus.
Not that there’s anything wrong with using ‘Chinese virus’ or ‘Wuhan virus’. The media used it for the first few months of this year until they decided it was racist to do so in order to paint Trump out to be a racist. Now Team Schumer is trying to turn it into official legislation when they know it will go nowhere in the Senate. Just more virtue signaling and appeasement while America suffers under this pandemic.
