You know how the coronavirus came from China? Well, puppet President Joe Biden signed an executive order — yes, another one — that directs governmental agencies to scrub any and all “offensive references” to the Chinese coronavirus. Oh, apparently calling it what it is — the Chinese coronavirus — is “xenophobic,” according to whoever’s pulling the strings in the “woke” Biden administration.
Here’s part of what the executive order — known by its virtue signaling word salad of a title, “Memorandum Condemning and Combatting Racism, Xenophobia, and Intolerance Against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States” — says:
The Federal Government must recognize that it has played a role in furthering these xenophobic sentiments through the actions of political leaders, including references to the COVID-19 pandemic by the geographic location of its origin. Such statements have stoked unfounded fears and perpetuated stigma about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders [AAPI] and have contributed to increasing rates of bullying, harassment, and hate crimes against AAPI persons. These actions defied the best practices and guidelines of public health officials and have caused significant harm to AAPI families and communities that must be addressed.
No word on the “racism” that Harvard University seems to actively practice against Asian-American applicants because of their, on average, higher test scores.
“Harvard, like most private and public universities, considers race as a factor when deciding who to admit — an effort to expand opportunities for minority students who have long been under-represented in higher education,” a March 2019 TIME article noted.
Anyway, the Biden administration doesn’t want you to speak the truth about the Chinese coronavirus, because the truth is now apparently racist.
Par for the course for an increasingly inept and incompetent federal government.
