Won't you please join me? Now I am more inclined than ever to call it the "Chinese Virus." When we let the leftists indoctrinators control language, they will try harder to control everything. However, I don't see what the problem is. Aren't the colleges closed down? San Diego State made students move out of their dorms last week. What are other schools doing? Sheltering in place?

Major Universities Ban The Use Of This Phrase For COVID-19 Virus…Seriously?

Does it get any dumber than this?

Diversity officials for the University of California system, whatever those are, have banned students and faculty from using the word “Chinese virus” to describe a virus from China that is currently ravaging the globe.

A statement from the Council of Chief Diversity Officers instructs everyone in the system to “reject racism, sexism, xenophobia and all hateful or intolerant speech, both in person and online.”

“Be an ‘up-stander,’ and discourage others from engaging in such behavior,” they declare.

“Do not use terms such as ‘Chinese virus’ or other terms which cast either intentional or unintentional projections of hatred toward Asian communities,” the statement reads.

Also, they declare, “Do not allow the use of these terms by others.”

“Allow”?? What does this even mean, are you suppose to conducts a citizens campus arrest if someone notes the origin of the COVID-19 virus?

They also make some helpful suggestions, like to “be inclusive and remember that everyone has different circumstances.”

The statement also comes with helpful instructions for conducting classes online to accommodate the meeting of health guidelines, but recommends not to criticize students for “casual attire.”

“Remember that people may be operating without resources and access to man material items and services,” the document notes.

The Daily Wire accused the university system of “bowing to current political correctness.”

The document goes as far as to spoon-feed people what they should say instead of “Chinese virus,” instructing them instead to “refer to the virus as either ‘COVID-19’ or ‘coronavirus’ in both oral and written communications.”

Included in the statement is a Joint Statement from the Vice Chancellor – Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and the Interim Vice Chancellor – Student Affairs at UC Davis titled “Rejecting Coronavirus Xenophobia.” (Can you believe that’s a job??)

This statement reads: “A core of our mission at UC Davis Health is, of course, to advance health. Yet, health, privilege and bias are often intertwined. In recent weeks, we have seen an example of this in the alarming rise in bigotry and xenophobia against Asian communities. For many Asians, the racism is not new, but it has been emboldened as Asians are scapegoated for the coronavirus epidemic. This is doubly painful as Chinese communities also bear the weight of most of the lives lost.”

As the Daily Wire reported, Jerry Kang, the vice chancellor for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion at UCLA, said: “you can see why I’m concerned about the use of another name, ‘Wuhan virus,’ which reflects both intellectual laziness and stereotyping.”

“It’s lazy in the sense that there are more precise names for the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, and the disease that it causes, COVID-19. We’re smart enough to learn the proper nomenclature,” he said.

WND notes:

WND reported last week two members of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission had issued a rebuttal to their panel’s majority statement warning of “growing anti-Asian racism and xenophobia” in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Commission members Peter Kirsanow and Gail Heriot, who regularly dissent with their colleagues’ positions, said they certainly agree that COVID-19 “is no excuse for anyone to attack or insult individuals of Asian descent and that when such acts rise to the level of criminal behavior, law enforcement should immediately intervene.”

“But that’s obvious to just about everyone in America,” they said. “The rare exception is unlikely to read the Commission’s statement, much less be persuaded by it.”

Kirsanow and Heriot challenge the panel’s claim that the relatively small number of incidents cited — mostly involving misbehavor by children and teenagers — indicates there is wave of racially motivated attacks.

How far are you from Mongolia. They can grow some big ones there. I met some very big Koreans here in the states (maybe it's the diet). Look at N Korea. Especially Fearless Leader with his show lifts. And I suspect he eats better than anyone in the country. What does that bode for the rest of them?

Ya know, I don't really care what the damned thing is called or where it came from, I just wanna see that little sucker nuked.

What troubles me about this is, I always thought there was a lower limit to human ignorance, like the Planck Scale or something. I was wrong, there is no bottom. People just get dumber and dumber and dumber, and the most intelligent ones among them who are running the show are the dumbest of them all.
