This was the pressing issue in San Antonio, Texas this past week.
The city council passed a “COVID-19 Anti-Hate Resolution” that condemns terms like the Kung Fu Flu and Chinese virus.
The coronavirus likely leaked from a Wuhan, China lab and then spread around the globe.
This is just more proof of Democrat insanity.
Via FOX News San Antonio:
In a letter to council members, Mayor Ron Nirenberg says the city must take a stand against COVID-19 hate speech.
“This coronavirus has held no regard for race, religion, creed, or political boundary. As such, our efforts must meet the indiscriminate nature of COVID-19 with empathy and compassion for all our neighbors,” writes Nirenberg. “I ask that you consider adopting the attached resolution – which declares that our COVID-19 response efforts will be free of hate and discrimination – at the next Council A-Session.”
Nirenberg’s letter adds that terms like ‘Chinese virus’ and ‘Kung Fu Virus’ only encourage hate crimes and incidents against Asian communities; and that the Jewish community has also been targeted with blame and conspiracy theories regarding coronavirus.
At the 7:00 mark a local citizen says, “This bullsh*t!” They cut his mic.
