Media hypocrisy: Trump calling it ‘Wuhan virus’ is racist, but media hacks themselves called it just that

The current coronavirus is misnamed because it is not specific enough. Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that cause respiratory tract infections. Coronaviruses include the common cold, the seasonal flu virus, and rarer forms such as SARS, MERS, and the current virus wreaking havoc around the world. That virus originated in China, in the city of Wuhan.

Note: SARS-CoV (Severe Acute Respirtory Syndrome-CoronaVirus) had also originated in China — in southern China in 2002.

The medical name for the current coronavirus is SARS-CoV-2.

The disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 is named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

On Wednesday night, March 11, once again President Trump spoke to the nation about what the federal government is doing about the Wuhan coronavirus.

MSM jackals, especially CNN, seized on Trump calling the virus the Wuhan virus, and accused him of racism.

Why is that racist?

Did you know that MERS that first broke out in June 2012 in Saudi Arabia refers to Middle East Respiratory Syndrome?

Why is it okay to call MERS the “Middle East” coronavirus, but it’s racist to call the current coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China the Wuhan or Chinese coronavirus?

To top it off, the very same MSM jackals who are accusing Trump of racism themselves had referred to the virus as the Wuhan coronavirus! — which makes them, by their own yardstick, rank racists.

Here’s the evidence:

For what it’s worth they did the same thing with Reagan and AIDS in the 80’s. He was “homophobic”. I happened to see the Globe tabloid yesterday and it had this headline: Cornavirus destroying the world! As evidence they claimed that fashion shows in Italy are being canceled. So for me that wasn’t quite convincing. I’m assuming that was your source for the rather remarkable statement “the current virus wreaking havoc around the world.” Do you have evidence of that? Maybe I’m just slow but I haven’t seen any, only that a bunch of people are sick, maybe, with no… Read more »

Sorry that this is way off-topic but I didn’t know that they arrested Halbig. Has this been discussed on FOTM? I gotta know more and I figure it’s been given fair treatment here on Dr. E’s blog, but I’m unable to find it myself. A link would be much appreciated.

Government stole Leader Technologies Patents from Columbus, Ohio and gave to IBM Eclipse Foundation to distribute to their “chosen criminal corporations” enabling EVERY social media platform – and Teleprompters used by all the Network Media for their slimy “repeaters” to read their narrative contaminating the public’s minds with lies. Another shadow government was set up 1978 with the Senior Executive Service by a female attorney and handful of people signed by Jimmy Carter. 4 years ago there were around 9,000 SES members drawing salaries in range of ½ million in addition to their elected or appointed position. Later with the… Read more »

So lacking evidence other than the word of globalist liars and their idiotic “surrogate marker” ping machines, your statement that COVID is “wreaking havoc around the world” is baseless fear-mongering. We have the MSM for that, 24/7. Better yet Whatfinger. At least they punctuate their hysteria with articles of interest

@William – If you watched President Trump’s announcement in the Rose Garden this afternoon declaring an emergency, he also stated when questioning by a reporter he knows who is responsible for the virus. Not one of the reporters asked him a follow-up question on his comment. The reporters don’t want to know the truth as they must follow a script to hold on to their jobs. Just one silly stupid “got cha” question after another why he didn’t get tested after the dinner with Brazil’s President. You will never learn anything but rubbish and smut from the Main Stream Media.… Read more »

So far 4,000 claimed deaths, and more hysteria and panic than caused by the spanish flue which is claimed to be responsible for millions.

Q: “Why is it okay to call MERS the “Middle East” coronavirus, but it’s racist to call the current coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China the Wuhan or Chinese coronavirus?” A: Maybe the Chinese have more $$$ invested in or MSM, driving the narrative? Why even watch CNN? I literally get physically ill when visiting my mother and her TV comes on tuned to CNN or, more often, MSNBC. An actual reaction of revulsion. Those LSM stations are literally the pox upon our nation, the virus that is infecting the great unwashed masses with TDS, and PBS and NPR aren’t… Read more »

Panel all ignore Dr. Fauci and pile on with more TDS.
Lather, rinse, and repeat. Next station.
