Journalists and the World Health Organization are being “useful idiots” promoting Chinese propaganda. Apparently calling the COVID-19 virus, the Wuhan Virus is now considered racist. These are the same “journalists” that insist that Trump joking at a rally asking for Hillary’s emails was “collusion.”

A few days ago, the politically correct World Health Organization (WHO) was very concerned about the “stigma” that could occur when talking about the COVID-19 virus that has spread all over the globe.

I mean, you wouldn’t want to bring attention to the fact that it did start in Wuhan and that the Chinese government didn’t do much to stop the spread of it early on.

After it was revealed that someone who attended CPAC tested positive for Coronavirus, Rep. Paul A. Gosar(R-AZ) announced on Sunday night that he would self-quarantine after he had “sustained contact” with that attendee. In his tweet, he used the term “Wuhan Virus” which was what the virus was called early on.

Many praised the controversial Arizona congressman, who along with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is one of two members of Congress in isolation, for taking precautionary measures despite not showing any symptoms. But many more objected to his choice of words: On his personal Twitter account, Gosar called covid-19 “the Wuhan Virus.”

“While I appreciate you self-quarantining and making a responsible decision, you don’t need to throw out dogwhistle racist terms while you do it,” said one typical response.

If Dr. Gu’s name sounds familiar, he is the one who came up with this imbecilic tweet during the Kavanaugh hearings claiming that the Judge’s Mexican Jewish former law clerk was a white supremacist:

Which is what I reminded Dr. Gu:

As always, Rep. Ted Lieu(D-CA) who can be counted on for all of the absolute worst virtue-signaling takes weighed in on Dr. Gosar calling it the Wuhan Virus:

What an idiot. Using a so-called “racist” term somehow allowed the virus to spread in the United States. MSNBC’s Chris Hayes still in mourning because Chris “Mr. Tingle” Matthews was “quitted” jumped on the “That’s racist!” bandwagon.

David Gura, a lefty journo whose Twitter bio includes contributions to MSNBC, NBC News, Bloomberg TV, Marketplace, and NPR had expressed the same opinion — that referring to COVID-19 as the “Wuhan Virus” was racist.

The replies explained that that was an absolutely ridiculous tweet. Ian Miles Cheong, who happens to be Chinese, responded to Gura.

But Cheong wasn’t finished with Gura…

CNN has been particularly racist… if that’s what we’re calling it now.

The irony is that the term “Wuhan Virus” was trending on Twitter.

Meanwhile, in Mexico…

See, saying “Wuhan Virus” isn’t anything like a song and dance number with a child dressed as the Coronavirus wearing a bamboo hat and sporting a Fu Manchu while other children dressed as doctors chase it with a syringe.

But I’m sure that the liberal media betters are oblivious to the difference between the two.

As the firefighters in the liberal Media vent their spleens on anyone who says “Wuhan Virus” now that it’s been labeled COVID-19 over a month after the outbreak began, China is busy trying to distance themselves from being the epicenter of a massive viral illness outbreak… again.

Some are even going so far as to claim that the CIA planted COVID-19 in Wuhan.

But why would China be spreading conspiracy theories like that?

Who could guess?

And it wasn’t a Jewish mother’s chicken soup.

So, as usual, everything is stupid and we’re all supposed to kowtow to the authoritarian Chinese government and not ask any questions.

Meanwhile, our liberal Media is stoking fear that this is The Pandemic that will wipe out half the population (or whatever) and that is leading to a shortage of toilet paper as people are stockpiling it.

But at least some shop owners can find the humor in this insane situation.

Remember, don’t touch your face, wash your hands for 20 seconds, use hand sanitizer, and don’t buy all of the damned toilet paper in Sam’s Club!
