Should we call it the Chinese Virus?


Hussain

Recommended Posts

Bill Maher said it was fine to call the coronavirus the “China virus,” adding that a global pandemic was no time for political correctness.

“‘What if people hear Chinese virus and blame China?’ The answer is we should blame China. We can’t afford the luxury anymore of non-judginess towards a country with habits that kill millions of people,” Maher thundered Friday in a monologue at the end of his HBO show “Real Time.”

"Chinese" can also refer to ethnicity, so it would be better to call it the China virus.  China (the government) should be blamed and shamed.

Would you feel okay about one called the Canada virus? Further, would the people around you feel okay about it?

If my country and government were responsible for that virus and hundreds of thousands and potentially millions of worldwide deaths and massive economic suffering my feelings wouldn't really be relevant.

This virus was caused by China's neglect in health and safety despite this being a continued problem that has repeatedly occurred and continual warnings.  This wasn't caused by an accident it was caused by negligence, and criminal negligence at that.  If any company in Canada were responsible for this you can bet they would be sued into the stratosphere.

We should stop calling Spanish flu Spanish flu. No yellow fever. No black plague. Sorry Mr. Zeka. No West Nile virus. No German measles.  Please do not call it Rue bella either. Diseases are named after people who discover them and or geographic sites where they start.

I like the term some people are using ,  calling it the CCP Virus.  I like it and use the term instead of COVID or whatever.

Bill Maher said something racist/derogatory/embarassing.

That is his profession, no?

 

Go away with your leftist liberal racist bull chit. Maher is right, and the virus started in China and why should it not be called the China virus? Screw off with that political correctness nonsense. I will bet that if the virus started in Canada, I pretty much know that you would not have a problem with calling it a Canada virus, eh? That to you would not be seen as being racist, eh?  It would appear as though your profession is to try and create and promote hatred against Western looking people of the world to me alright. ;)

So just where did you steal all of that you posted above?  I can be pretty sure that you did not come up with any of that you posted above in your brain? It's not possible for you to be able to do. Just from my observations with months of dealing with you. ;)

Chinese virus may damage people's lungs, but Trump virus damages people's brains....

Politically, it would be more sarcastic if the huge American empire collapsed before the tiny Chinese virus:

Do you think it might be politically expedient for Trump to wipe China from the map if that collapse happens?

Nobody would want to pull the trigger if others also had guns pointing on his head.....

 

For your information, this isn't a scene from Hollywood sic-fi movies like terminator or X-Men: apocalypse...

 

If US collapses, Trump will still be alive. But if he pulls the trigger, he will also die. And what is the purpose of having a gold toilet without being able to use it...

I'm wondering if the time comes when everyone pull out its guns, who will be the Parrot in the video of Pirates of the Caribbean...

1. Taiwanese separatist President inspects Taiwan largest annual military drill

 

2. PLA

No.  The virus has a technical/ medical name.   Calling it anything else  would be inflammatory.  People   seem to want to  blame someone.....   Natural , but  emotionally reactive responsive.   Counterproductive. 

 

More important to deal with & learn   all we can about   the virus  than  play the blame  game.

China deserves every bit of blame they get for releasing a virus that simply effed up everything. The CCPVirus is the best appropriate name. Because it shows the issue with the virus and that the CCP is no different from a virus.

The virus came from China and therefore it should be called the China virus. You must be one of those communist Chinese sympathizers out there, eh? Are you friends with that Tammy Chinese health officer woman by chance? I personally believe that she is a communist spy for China. Hey, we never know, eh? :D

You must watch a hell of lot of movies, eh? Just saying. I heard that the new Top Gun Movie had to remove some scenes from the movie because some of the actors in the movie were wearing some Taiwanese and Japanese looking stuff on their uniform. Apparently, China was offended by whatever they were wearing on their uniforms. Apparently, China does not exactly like Taiwan or Japan. China looks at those two countries as an enemy of the Chinese communist regime. I guess that  is because those two countries are freedom loving capitalist countries.  

Up China. The whole world should stop dealing with a communist country like China that imprisons innocent people because they say something that the commies do not want to hear, and murders many also. The world put sanctions against South Africa over apartheid, so why not the whole world put sanctions against China? I am pretty sure though that leftist liberals/democrats do not want sanctions against China. They love their communist China. Our Canadian comrade leader even has said that he admires communist China. I bet that he does. I am pretty sure that he would love to bring a lot of Chinese communism to Canada if he could. Hey, we never know, eh? ;)

      I'm going to be making some major changes to the forums over the next few weeks.
      The first, and likely the biggest change, is going to be in the name of the site, and the domain name you use to access the site (and consequently the discussion forums). I'm not going to release the new name yet (or the domain), you'll just have to wait and see what it is.  Not to worry, all of the old URLs will still work, everything will just be forwarding to the new domain URL scheme.
      I will also be modifying the sub-form categories somewhat, incorporating some long overdue changes.  Mostly, I'll be expanding the US Politics section, so that it has it's own section (similar to what we have for the Canadian Politics section) 
      Canadian Domestic Politics Federal Politics Provincial Politics Local Politics United States Domestic Politics Federal Politics State Politics Local Politics International Politics Canada / US Relations The Rest of The World The remainder of the forums I plan to keep the same.
      Of course I'm always open to suggestion for organization of sections, so please post below if you have any ideas.
      If you have any other good suggestions on reasonable changes we can make to the forums, please post them below. If they're good ideas, I'll do my research and see how easy it would be to incorporate into the new forums.
      Thanks!

      All over Ontario, people have been quarantined for weeks in order to flatten the curve and save lives, for the majority of places it has been working. Health officials are now saying that some places in Ontario have reached their peak and the daily number of cases are slowly starting to decline. However, long-term care homes are still at high risk and are being closely monitored to prevent a wide-scale outbreak.

      All publicly-funded schools in Ontario will remain closed until at least May 31 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Education Minister Stephen Lecce has announced.
      Ontario schools were initially closed for two weeks following March Break in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. The government then extended the closure through at least May 4, though Premier Doug Ford later said that it was unrealistic to think that children would be able to return to classes by that point.
      Speaking at Queen’s Park on Sunday afternoon, Lecce said that the decision to extend the closure through the end of May was based on “expert advice” from public health officials.
      He said that “if there is a way to save some of the school year at the back end,” his government would consider it but not at the expense of safety.
      “The extension will provide the province more time, sufficient time to review the data and the modelling so that we can make the best decision based on the best medical advice and ensure that ultimately students remain safe and staff remain safe should they return to school at some point his year or at any point beyond,” he said.
      While a number of other provinces have announced the cancellation of in-person classes for the rest of the year, Ontario has so far refused to do the same though it has worked to ramp up its online learning program and has promised that students will receive final grades, regardless of whether schools reopen.
      On Sunday, Lecce said that he “appreciates full well” that parents, educators and students al want a “greater degree of certainty” and hopes to provide a “final update” with respect to this school year before May 31.
      He said that in the meantime the province will also provide “some greater” context with regards to the benchmarks that need to be hit to reopen schools when it releases its economic recovery plan sometime this week.
      “I think currently the advice from the chief medical officer of health is that we are not there today. We need more time we need to see a reduced risk to young people and we have accepted that advice as we always have and given ourselves another month of time,” he said.
      All remaining PA days cancelled
      Since ordering the closuring the closure of all schools last month, the province has worked to ramp up its online learning program and recently struck a deal with Apple to distribute thousands of iPads to students from low-income families.
      Lecce said that at this point there are no plans to extend the school year, as officials are confident that adequate instruction is being delivered through the online learning program.
      He did, however, say that all remaining professional activity (PA) days and examination days will be cancelled to maximize instruction time.
      The province is also working to introduce a more robust summer learning program to help interested students “mitigate from learning loss,” Lecce said.
      As for the eventual resumption of classes, whenever that may be, Lecce said that his government will take an open-mided approach to ensuring safety.
      “If students return at some point later this year my commitment is to come back here and communicate to you how I will ensure every parent in this province that we can ensure the safety of your child. If it involves changing how classrooms are structured or designed we will look at that. We have a duty and responsibility to be open to every idea to achieve safety,” he said.

      Canadians won’t be able to return to life as they knew it before the novel coronavirus pandemic until a vaccine is available, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday.
      “Normality as it was before will not come back full-on until we get a vaccine for this… That will be a very long way off,” the prime minister said during his daily news conference on Canada’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

      Remember now, the Dem's media outlets that claim Trump called it a hoax, are the same media outlets who claimed 1st Lady Melania Trump wanted to have sex with Canada's Trudeau. All because of her lively response when Mr. Trudeau approached her to say hello back when they all were overseas at (G7 Summit?) the end of 2019.
