(Liberty Bell) – Is anyone sick of this garbage?
While the nation battles the coronavirus outbreak within our borders, all the privileged, PC-obsessed pundits in the mainstream media seem to care about is picking apart semantics and creating false narratives of racism that seem to impact no one.
All week, they’ve been beating the drum that President Donald Trump is “racist” for calling the COVID-19 virus the “Chinese virus.”
The virus is from China, by the way. That’s where it originated. That’s literally the only reason for calling it this. It’s true, and accurate, and there’s no denying it.
Now, the New York Times has deleted the word “Wuhan” from its coronavirus tracking map. Imagine the lives they’re saving by doing so! Wait…
Summit Times reports:
Trump has repeatedly referred to the outbreak as the ‘Chinese virus’ in an effort to have Beijing take responsibility given that their cover-up of the outbreak in its early months is what rapidly accelerated the current global pandemic.
The media responded, in some instances by directly amplifying Chinese state propaganda, by accusing Trump of “racism” for using the geographically accurate term.
Now the New York Times has erased the word ‘Wuhan’ from its online coronavirus tracking map in a bid to hide the source of the virus.
“The Times also altered the name of its map in its February 2 article on the virus, as discovered by independent journalist Jeryl Bier,” National File’s Patrick Howley notes.
Perhaps even more outrageously, over at Wikipedia, the editors are frantically trying to change the name of the 1918 Spanish flu article to remove the word “Spanish” even though everyone knows it was called the Spanish flu. And has been for over 100 years!
Summit News notes: “By removing the word ‘Spanish’, editors obviously hope they can convince the public that naming viral outbreaks after the region in which they originated is not normal, even though it has been virtually since records began.”
