MSNBC Journalist Claims Calling Covid-19 “Wuhan Virus” Is Racist


Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

MSNBC journalist David Gura claims that referring to coronavirus as the “Wuhan virus” is racist despite the fact that virtually every other virus was named after its geographical origin.

“FYI: Calling the “Wuhan Virus” is racist,” commented Gura in a tweet that received 25,000 likes.

FYI: Calling #COVID19 the “Wuhan Virus” is racist.

He was immediately reminded of the fact that virtually every major virus in recent and not so recent history was named after the geographical region from which it emerged.

West Nile Virus

Zika Virus

Ebola Virus

German Measels

Spanish Flu

Marburg Virus

Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever


Stockholm Syndrome

Lyme Disease

Wuhan Virus

All named after places

The mainstream media also repeatedly called COVID19 the “Wuhan virus” for weeks on end.

Democrats are sadistically using the Wuhan Virus as a weapon in their fight for political power.

These same Democrats are also attacking anyone who calls COVID-19 the “Wuhan Virus.”

Funny, I wonder who was it who first used the term “Wuhan Virus”?

Even Chinese news sources refer to it as the “Wuhan virus.”

“FYI: Being patronizing and paternalistic about everything that involves anyone non-white is racist,” responded one Twitter user.

Gura’s comments are part of the continuing effort to patrol language in relation to the coronavirus outbreak.

The World Health Organization has repeatedly issued statements demanding people avoid profiling or using certain words to describe the virus in order to avoid “stigmatizing” people.

Perhaps if health authorities and the media concentrated wholly on preventing a global pandemic rather than policing words, we’d be in a better position.
