Harris Wants Senate to Focus on Declaring the Term “Wuhan Virus” Racist Instead of Helping Americans

She’s decided to introduce a resolution that is designed to create a permanent record of racism. If anyone is found to have called the virus the “Wuhan flu” or any variation of “China virus”, Harris wants it on record. That way, the whole world will know who is truly a racist.

Naming conventions should not be the issue at the moment but that is not happening. The impact of the virus itself should be high priority but the Democrats would rather argue over who is a racist or not. It’s one of their favorite games but this time, the future of the nation is at stake.

With so much on the line, it is hard to believe that this is what they are focused on. Mazie Hirono and Tammy Duckworth are also involved in the Harris initiative. They are even worried about the term “Kung Flu” and we do not even know anyone who uses that phrase to describe the virus.

There is something to be said for taking the time to choose your words carefully. Anti Asian rhetoric is not a completely nonexistent issue. However, these are conversations that need to be had with the working class Americans who are responsible for perpetuating it. Is this really such a widespread issue that the Senate needs to pass a resolution?

This whole argument is getting tired, for a number of reasons. For starters, diseases are typically named after the geographical region that they emerge from. Do people think that “Ebola” is a racist name? That disease was named after the river in West Africa where it was originally found and we have yet to hear anyone referred to racist for using that name.

Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), and Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) introduced a resolution last week condemning anti-Asian racism and the use of the terms “Wuhan virus”, “Chinese virus,” or “Kung flu” in referring to the coronavirus or COVID-19.

“Whereas 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.

“After Donald Trump repeatedly used his platform to try to racialize this disease, we continue to see a spike in rhetoric and actions against the Asian American community because of misguided fears surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak,” Duckworth said in a statement.

Even Lyme Disease got its name from the location where it was first found. Most people are completely unaware of the fact that it is named after a town in Connecticut known as Old Lyme. It should be obvious where West Nile was found. There are no shortage of examples that come to mind when we start to think about the diseases of the world.

Sometimes, it is okay to move on and talk about something else. Since we know that the virus had originally been found in Wuhan and there is very little evidence to support any other theory, why would people call it anything else? We just wonder if people were sitting around 100 years ago calling each other racist for using the phrase “Spanish Flu”.

People may not refer to the virus in a manner that is politically correct but this is an example of gallows humor. No one needs to be using the phrase “Kung Flu” and we can only hope to regulate that out of polite society on our own. We are going to go out on a huge limb and say that this is probably not an issue that the Senate needs to be taking time out of their day to address.

It’s tone deaf, to say the least. Millions of Americans do not know where their next paycheck is coming from and this is what the Senate wants to waste their time discussing. Someone should take a moment to let the Senate know that there are people out there who are in need of assistance. This isn’t the time for Kamala Harris and her ilk to let everyone know that they are SO not a racist.

Empty virtue signaling like this does nothing to help the people that these folks claim to want to protect. Where are they when Asian Americans are being treated poorly on an everyday basis? Instead, they are on hand to collect their woke points when everyone is looking. These types of “good deeds” probably make them feel good, at least.

The Chinese have pushed out 90,000 tweets since the start of April from 200 diplomatic and state-run media accounts as part of an offensive in the COVID-19 information war, according to data collected by the Hamilton 2.0 dashboard of the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a tool that aggregates accounts connected to the Chinese government.

Bret Schafer, the digital disinformation fellow at the alliance, based in Washington, D.C., has been tracking China’s increasing social media output for months.

According to Schafer’s analysis, Twitter output from China’s official sites has almost doubled since January, and the number of diplomatic Twitter accounts has tripled, to 135, up from just 40 accounts this time last year. Many tweets are in English or Mandarin, but the diplomatic accounts are often in the language of an embassy’s host country.

If they want to call Trump a racist, they are more than free to do so. We just don’t understand why they feel the need to waste everyone else’s time while they are at it. All he did was follow the same naming conventions that have been in place for decades now. The Senate Democrats should stay off social media and spend more time focusing on the issues that matter most.

  1. The only racist is you Harris!! The Democratic Party is corrupt and racist‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  2. Thank you for this article. This is just the latest time the Democrat’s love for China is being displayed. There slogan seems to be China first(or any place but the USA). They spend their time on the dumbest issues because they have no interest in actually helping Americans or this country. Take note of who the Dems really care about.

  3. Kamala—it is clear that u r just trying to get Joe’s attention. Folks—can u visualize the results of Biden/Harris negotiating with the Chinese??!! We might as well as throw in the Amrican flag because it will be sacrificed to the Communist Chinese.!!

  4. The racist card doesn’t hold water anymore. That’s the only way Democratic’s think they can influence a election. Trump has done more for black Americans than any other President. Obama and Biden gave CELL PHONES AND S STIMULUS package that was a box of ex-lax. Was a Democrat all my life but not anymore.

  5. Democrats are tone deaf to anyone’s needs at this time; they only want to make a statement that will put them in the history books so that future readers will know that they were not racists. They seem to think that the entire country is worried about such things when so many people are suffering from unemployment and from the virus itself. Do you think anyone who has the virus and is on a ventilator is worried about what to call the illness?

  6. This is just another example of trying to abuse power and not letting the truth ring out loud and clear to hear. In her eyes Real Americans should kiss our enemies butt. That’s not our character make up as Americans.

  7. Has anyone thought about the Dems wanting to remove the word “Wuhan” from the virus since that is the source of the virus, and it has a direct connection to Dr. Fauci. Dr. Fauci facilitated the funding of the Wuhan Lab under the Obama administration when it was in violation of the U.S. policies to do so. He saw to it that they received over $400 million for their research into what? – bilogical warfare, and even if not that has now been responsible for the devastation in the U.S. and other world economies, due to the lies of the Chinese Communist Party and the WHO. Then enters Dr. Fauci to lead the charge of shutting down the U.S. economy and now it is coming out that the lockdowns are harmful and can cause further spread of other diseases, and the statistical models he relied on are unreliable. So the dominoes have fallen and Fauci is changing his tune admit his advice is not reliable either. This, after putting the groundwork down for the Dems to push socialism in our country with the government being the sugar daddy to citizens so they don’t want to work – that is how the failure of a country begins. Watch the YouTube video/movie “Grinding Down America.” Do we smell a conspiracy here? Time for Trump to call a halt to this, get people back to work with precautions and help the vulnerable protect themselves.

  8. WUHAN VIRUS is a fact it is not racism if you want to address racism how about started with Biden if you don’t vote for me your not black this is a lot more racist than naming a virus for the part of the country it originated in, once again this is fact not racism

  9. Ms. Harris you are so full of IT! when you sneeze everyone gets dirt on them It is Chinese Virus, so call me racist I don’t care.

  10. Kamala Harris,
    You can change the name to Harris Kamala virus instead of Wuhan virus to make China happy, American people are ok for this.

  11. Welcome to the RIGHT side, Mark. We (Conservative Republicans) are the ones who REALLY do love this country and want to keep it honest, clean and for the citizens of the country…not illegals either. Is Kamala a TRUE American?

  12. Can anyone tell me why what democrats say is of any value to Americans. They need to stop play games before it’s to late.
    I know let’s all vote for them again in 2020 NOT on your life.

  13. If anyone is a racist this nasty broad is it. She needs to be thrown out congress ,Harris no good for America.

  14. Karmala Harris … Wish she could do something “Contructive” for the Amercan People – other than play the Stupid Democratic Games….that just wastes our tax paying money. Whoever votes for people like her – needs to take a Real Good Look at Themselves.!

  15. Harris is an absolute idiot. But, she is typical democrat. The virus came from China, not Europe, Africa, Australia, or DONALD TRUMP. Saying the Virus is the Wuhan Virus is not racist. Calling a virus a name is not racist. You want a racist, Harris, you should look in the mirror. If you are afraid off pissing off the Chinese Kamilla, then go live with them. No loss to America. God Bless America.

  16. Obama is the person who really dwelled on racism during his 8 years of doing NOTHING else! These socialists do nothing but blame everything on the Republicans, including but not limited to racism. These so-called Democrats, who are just socialists in sheeps’ clothing, are the true racists. They only want the black and hispanic votes, whether fraudulent or not, to win their elections! Well, here’s a little secret, you ignorant asshats! The black people are waking up to your intentions. You have done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR THEM! President Trump has lowered their unemployment rates, while you have done nothing but try to make everyone more dependent on Big Government and take away Constitutional rights! I wouldn’t be counting on a whole lot of people giving up their guns real soon. So I wouldn’t be waking a not-so-sleeping giant if I were you. You may find yourselves looking down the barrels of firearms if you try to take away their 2nd Amendment rights! And I doubt if you would be missed very much! You’re all a bunch of power-hungry SOBs who really care about no one but your greedy selves! I hope you’re ALL voted out! I pray for it every single day!

  17. Isn’t she special. That’s the likes of the California democrat leaders. Nothing they do,has any relevance, only something that makes them personally happy. Thank god she’s long gone from the presidential race, & god help us if ANY democrat gets into the white house, or they keep control of the house,or gain majority in the Senate 🥺

  18. DEMOCRATS are nothing ORDINARY Ordinary MORONS. If they had a BRAIN
    they would be DANGEROUS to themselves !! IT’S lucky that they can do anything right . IF they ever ever did anything RIGHT it would be
    a MISTAKE !

  19. That’s when you get off y’alls lazy BUTT and VOTE to keep PRESIDENT TRUMP in office for the next EIGHT TERMS !! And then the Republican Party can CONTROL the HOUSE, SENATE and the WHITE HOUSE !!

  20. You are right on the Dot, I agree with you 100%, The Democrats have been against America and it’s Natural Born Citizens for Decades and they will Only get Worst!! TRUMP 2020!
