  • Ignorance, Stupidity, and Racism...

    ...led to attempted murder. Perhaps this is why labeling the pandemic as the Chinese virus may be the cause of recent abuse of Americans of Asian descent.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/st...cid=spartandhp
    The vicious stabbing of an Asian-American family, including a 2-year-old girl, at a Sam’s Club in Texas earlier this month has been deemed a hate crime by the feds, as authorities continue to raise alarm bells about a potential surge in racially motivated crimes amid the coronavirus outbreak.

    Jose L. Gomez, 19, confessed to authorities that he attempted to murder three Asian-American family members, including the toddler and a 6-year-old, on March 14 at the Midland, Texas store, according to the Midland Police Department. Gomez, who stabbed the individuals and a Sam’s Club employee, is now facing several charges, including three counts of attempted capital murder and one count of aggravated assault. He is being held on several bonds totaling $1 million.
    “The suspect indicated that he stabbed the family because he thought the family was Chinese, and infecting people with coronavirus,” according to an FBI analysis report obtained by ABC News.

    The Texas incident was used in the report as one example of a recent surge in hate crimes and racially fueled violence targeting Asian-Americans as the coronavirus pandemic continues to sweep the United States.

    According to an arrest affidavit obtained by the Midland Reporter-Telegram, Gomez attempted to kill the Asian-American family of four inside the wholesale store at about 7:30 p.m. When a Sam’s Club employee and another patron intervened, Gomez allegedly stabbed the patron in the leg and fingers with a knife.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    The Fake News Media is 100% to blame for such hysteria. They created this panic for political reasons. They ignored Swine Flu in 2009 for political reasons with it's 60 million infected in the US alone, hundreds of thousands hospitalized, and thousands of deaths.

            I hold the media responsible for the hoarding, mass panic and now this! They are being very irresponsible at a time when they should be honest, truthful and stick to the facts. Politics have no place in this whatsoever.

            It has led to this directive in India.

                Reasonable people would realize the term isn't toxic. The MSM was calling it that when there were cases and deaths in the US.

                https://youtu.be/5eZtCq1aj2g

                Trump started calling it the China virus when China started the story that it came from the US Army. Up until Trump used the same words the MSM was using......no one had an issue with it.

                This is 100% political and the left is playing the race card again.

                  Your video does not show dates and does not counter my point. And saying "Wuhan coronavirus" does not advertise the national origin, so it is different from saying "Chinese virus"

                  And It is not about Trump start calling the virus the "Chinese virus." I had no problem with THAT case when Trump responded to Chinese conspiracy theories. It is about insisting on using this term even though such use risks making the Chinese residents and Chinese American citizens a scapegoat

                  And this is while we are probably still at the early stages of the disease's spread. If we end up with substantially more victims, and racists start losing their parents and grandparents, things will be worse for the Asian community in Europe and in the US.

                    All the while the Fascists in China put people in concentration camps and our "liberal" media and academics runs cover for them. The world has bigger problems than the kind of racism you are so worried about.

                      You mean putting the Muslims which are supposedly loved by our liberals, in concentration camps right?

                        Seriously, watch the video. The China virus naming is also tied into banners that the were reporting...... 3 cases in the US from the China virus......Seattle....from the China virus.

                        The only point that the MSM and by that response is........ 'but its Trump!!!!'

                        Watch the video, pay attention, and apply critical thinking.

                          Where did this comment come from?

                          Muslims in concentration camps?

                            I am not into playing stupid games. Most of the cases in your video talk about the "Wuhan virus" and the situation in the US with some cases a few weeks ago is not comparable to the situation with thousands of dead today. If you do not want to understand that, you do not surprise me. End story is that some people, including many of those who called the virus a "China virus," or "Wuhan virus" realized how the development of this disease can put the Asian community in the US in a difficult spot and decided to stop calling the virus "China virus," or whatever. Others want to find excuses to be dicks and try to find if somebody a month ago called this epidemic a China virus! You can choose the side that best describes you...

                              It comes as a response of wolfhound's comment about the concentration camps in China

                              https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/resources...a_hidden_camps

                              China's hidden camps

                              What's happened to the vanished Uighurs of Xinjiang?



                              China is accused of locking up hundreds of thousands of Muslims without trial in its western region of Xinjiang.

                              The government denies the claims, saying people willingly attend special “vocational schools” which combat “terrorism and religious extremism”.

                              Now a BBC investigation has found important new evidence of the reality.


                              So, if woldhnd wants to talk about the leftist covering the "concentration camps" (his definition) in China, he can at least be upfront and present the whole picture so that the claim becomes that the leftist in the west try to also cover the inprisonment of the Muslims inside China's concentration camps.

                              For more details, or objections you can try to engage him. I will be bored to death having again another meaningless conversation with you.
