Hong Kong Protestors Use ‘Racist’ Virus Term To Mock The American Left & The Chinese Government
As the left claims that Asains around the world are worried about racial discrimination the Hong Kong protestors are back and they are using a “racists” term for the virus to troll the American Left and the Chinese Communist Party.
In the early weeks of the pandemic the President and his administration called the coronavirus the Wuhan virus or the Chinese virus. The decision to use the term was mainly because China was claiming the virus didn’t originate in Wuhan. Critics from the Left erupted claiming it would cause anti-Asian hate crimes.
In reality that just wasn’t true and Hong Kong pro-democracy protestors are using the term to mock the Left and the CCP.
Newsweek was astonished and reported:
One protester, 20-year-old student Adrian Hui, told HKFP he finds it wholly appropriate to call it the Chinese coronavirus because, as the sentiment goes, “it comes from China, so why should I not call it the Chinese coronavirus?”
“If the CCP won’t allow us to say ‘Chinese virus,’ we definitely need to use it more,” Hui added. “I have freedom of speech, and I don’t think it is racist or hurtful, it’s still just a name.”
When protesters use free speech as a justification for using charged terms, it also serves as a jab at the Chinese, because they do not share that freedom.
A common argument for calling it the “Chinese coronavirus” is that it serves as a reminder that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) should be held accountable when the world eventually comes out on the other side of the crisis. Many protesters see the CCP as the primary culprit for why the outbreak was not contained before it spread to the rest of the world, and hence believe that China must pay for their carelessness.
The people of Hong Kong know first hand the power of the CCP and what the Left is trying to accomplish in the USA; they’ve decided to punch it right in the mouth!
