“The European Virus”

by Jack

The coronavirus outbreak is the first pandemic of the woke era, and as such, it isn’t surprising that there is a fierce debate over how to refer to it without offending all our social justice warriors and champions of political correctness.  MERS, was caused by a virus first identified in 2012, stands for the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or even more offensively, the camel flu.  Nobody flipped out over that reference, but just 8 years later times have sure changed.

Without running the risk of being flamed, you can’t call it the China virus or even the Wuhan virus today.  But why not?  Because several ago the World Health Organization cautioned against calling a disease by a geographic location or someone’s name because it might be stigmatizing.

Therefore, we should stop calling it Lou Gehrig’s disease, the Johnstown Flood, Hurricane Katrina or the Great Chicago fire, lets just say a flood…somewhere or call it hurricane #21A.  We wouldn’t want to be stigmatizing, right?

How does Gov. Cuomo get away calling the China virus  the European virus, it’s not from there?  And he’s done that more than once.  But, why?  He is blatantly telling the world how far he’s willing to go to not offend Communist China.  He telling us the words the left deems acceptable!

Let me leave you with this thought:  How do you change the way people think? You can start by changing the words they use.  When you control the words, you control the narrative.  This is how totalitarian regimes throughout history have controlled their people.

    Controlling’s words also makes us look weak, especially to countries that want to harm or destroy us. Russia, China, Iran and others have become more aggressive towards us recently with military and non-military acts.

    Senator Harris has a new bill addressing this issue, but she forgot one name used by our parents during WWll. “Japs” who truly were our enemy and almost did destroy us.

    Tom Cotton hits back at Kamala Harris’ new proposal: It shows Dems have ‘no answers’ for China’s rise”

    “Sen. Tom Cotton said on Thursday that he objects to Sen. Kamala Harris’ newly introduced resolution to deem the phrase “Wuhan Virus” xenophobic, arguing it shows the Democrats’ overall lack of a strategy to deal with China as a threat to the United States.

    “Wuhan is just a city, it’s not even a people,” Cotton, R-Ark., told “Fox & Friends.”

    “I guess she’s going to have to call out Lyme disease for being anti-Connecticut or even maybe Legionnaires’ disease for being anti-veteran or Zika since Zika is a forest in Africa,” Cotton said.

    Cotton’s comments came after Sen. Harris, D-Calif., introduced a resolution condemning “anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID-19,” including use of the phrase “Wuhan Virus.”

    The former presidential candidate introduced the bill on behalf of a number of Democrats to condemn “all manifestations or expressions of racism, xenophobia, discrimination, anti-Asian sentiment, scapegoating, and ethnic or religious intolerance” and “to expeditiously investigate and document all credible reports of hate crimes, incidents, and threats against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community in the United States.”

    It came from China, therefore it’s the Chinese virus.
    Anything else identifies the speaker as ignorant or pushing their own agenda.
    China has a LOT to answer for infecting the world!

    Jack activist dems have worked vigorously to control the narrative r in this country for at least fifty years. Those of us who deigned to notice have been smeared with labels such as racist, denier, or crazy. It’s all part of an anti free speech plan to control not just the narrative but a collectivist tyrannical future.

    They lie, they censor, they generate fear and division, none of which resembles an abiding love for freedom, including freedom of expression, we Americans value.

    The good news is they are losing that tight grip on speech. It’s okay with me that CNN, CBS, et al, act as the voice of the Democrat Party as long as there are other ways to gather information.

    A dark blue community in VA just voted for red leadership in 4 of 4 races. Could it happen in Chico?

    Just finished watching Created Equal. What a wonderful documentary about Clarence Thomas’ life. Of special interest is how history does repeat itself when we don’t learn from past mistakes. Hope you all will take the time to watch it too.

      Joe, did you know Nancy Pel-lousy just turned 80? She’s way passed her prime and the stuff she comes up with proves it almost daily. What makes these politicians think they are too valuable to be replaced, so they stay on and on and on…

      • Joe says:

        Power…pure power…being able to direct trillions of dollars and control people’s lives is the most powerful drug in the universe.

      • Joe says:

        To paraphrase :)…or bastardize MacArthur….”Old tyrants never die…they don’t even fade away…they rule forever.” Or at least it sure seems that way.

    Jack your point on use of words is on target, Covid -19 (basically a mutated form of SARS) only seems to serve the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as China, and If I may generalize a bit, the liberals of this country.

    I think Trump is doing a yo-mans job in the Presidency trying to keep the hopes and dreams of American positive so we can work through this.

    In the meantime, Liberals are just using this problem as a political tool to regain political power. People like Pelosi, Schiff (a Soros puppet) and Schumer, while politically astute enough to understand a need to compromise in these times, tirelessly besmirch Trump for their political benefit, and let America, and it people decay along the way side.

    • Post Scripts says:

      Harold, oh for sure, 100% right on target. Libs love a crisis don’t they. Look at foolish stuff they did in the name of public safety in CA. What a joke.

    A fascinating read by Lee Smith. Reads like a spy mystery novel, except it happened.

    Buried in the hearts of every true American is the desire to be free. Patriots of both parties are seeing what life under the oppressive socialist democrats is like because of the Wuhan Flu. We all will have a choice this November if we want to live free or under the rulers who have lied to gain control of their very existence. Will we live as free men and women or as surfs to our masters?

    CNN, etc. have lied too many times to not have the truth known to those who seek it.
