Kamala Harris Introduces Resolution Condemning “Wuhan Virus” and “Chinese Virus” As Racist
Last week, deranged Senate Democrats, led by the incredibly unlikable Kamala Harris, introduced a resolution calling on the Senate to condemn the terms “Wuhan virus” and “Chinese virus” as racist.
Introduced on May 14, it describes the terms “Chinese Virus,” “Wuhan Virus,” and “Kung-flu” as “anti-Asian terminology and rhetoric” that “have perpetuated anti-Asian stigma.” It also calls on the Senate to condemn “all forms of anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID–19,” including “all manifestations or expressions of racism, xenophobia, discrimination, anti-Asian sentiment, scapegoating, and ethnic or religious intolerance.” The bill also reads that “The increased use of anti-Asian rhetoric has resulted in Asian Americans being harassed, assaulted, and scapegoated for the COVID–19 pandemic.”
Harris claimed that, “There have been disturbing reports of increased profiling, intimidation, or hate towards Asian-Americans and Asian immigrants during the COVID-19 crisis – this is inexcusable. Let’s be clear: COVID-19 does not target any group by race or ethnicity. We must condemn any instance of racism or discrimination, wherever it exists.”
The senator cited an NBC News report saying that anti-Asian sentiments have increased during the pandemic, however, there is no actual evidence of anti-Asian sentiment stemming from the Chinese Wuhan Kung-flu virus, as the NBC piece relies on hearsay and projections. Harris also raised an FBI intelligence report discussed in an ABC news article saying that hate crimes against Asian-Americans were likely to increase, but those are just projections as well and have yet to pan out.
In March, President Trump tweeted in support of the Asian-American community:
I always treated the Chinese Virus very seriously, and have done a very good job from the beginning, including my very early decision to close the “borders” from China – against the wishes of almost all. Many lives were saved. The Fake News new narrative is disgraceful & false!

No one in their right mind would ever even think to hate Asian-Americans because of the WuFlu. It’s obvious that the Left knows this too, and that this effort by Senate Democrats is clearly just to gaslight and whitewash the fact that communists unleashed this pandemic upon the world. Meanwhile, keep blaming Trump and America for it.
Because anytime America is on one side of a fight, count on the Left to be on the other.
