    Default If you say wuhan virus you are a racist and xenophobic

    So I mentioned prior I collect, repair and sell watches. Because of this I’m on a watchforum. It’s a good group of people very diverse from the 100 dollar seiko collectors to the guys that can drop 75k on a watch and not blink. Yesterday there was a news report that movado watch company is laying off most of their work force and cutting benefits for those left. I started a thread about it on the forum but in the heading I put something like movados reaction to the wuhan virus. Holy shit you wouldn’t believe the shit storm that created. I am racist against Chinese, I’m xenophobic. It got pretty intense. I did explain I had no malicious intent but we were calling this the wuhan virus when it first started then one day it just changed to covid. I explained I still often say wuhan because of that but nope, according to some people I’m racist against Chinese. It then spilled over to a fight betwixt those who knew what I was saying and those who say anyone who says wuhan is a racist or at the very least a dog whistle. Wtf. I asked the mod to lock the thread. He did but got back to me and took my side which I didn’t expect. Damn the world is getting tough it’s way to easy to set people off this wuhan virus is fucking up everything

    Why do you want it called the wuhan virus, if it started in New York would you have called it that virus. As far as I am aware they have never been named in that way. What is wrong with calling it covid virus?
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    It is not racist to say something factual. If people cannot handle reality, then that is their delusion.

    It is not that calling it the Wuhan Virus makes you a racist it is the fact that many racist like your President could not wait to call it the Wuhan or Chinese virus and yet would never have called Swine flu the North Caroline virus or the American Virus. So you can see the people trying to police language are not all on the other side of the see saw to you. Some of them like Grandad Alph are actually trying to get on your lap.

    Lyme disease is named after a town in my state where the disease was found. We have so many diseases with reference to their origin or where they were found it shouldn’t be a big deal. Trump had reason for mentioning it several times. At that time China was blaming the US for starting the disease and using it as a weapon against China. That was actually reported from the official Chinese news broadcasts to its people. I know my family over there said most people called bullshit, quietly, but no doubt some in China believe that. China let 5 million people leave wuhan area for various parts of the world when they knew exactly what was going on. This is much more of a China virus than just it starting there. To this day they are saying cases in Shanghai, which they report is only a handful, were started by Americans traveling. So fuck China, they have gone so far as to blame Italy when the us thing didn’t stick. It’s the fucking wuhan virus. Now as the world fights the wuhan virus China is beefing up its military presence in the South China Sea running drills. Do you think they give one fuck. They look at this as a chance to expand their power. They are intent on being THE dominant world power. Don’t feel bad or by the bullshit. Trump had very good reason to use those words. Fuck China, don’t buy the bullshit it’s the wuhan virus. China is a beautiful country. The people are amazingly friendly and the food is absolutely amazing but we need to call bullshit on Xi who has a hard on for Mao, one of the biggest killers the world has seen.

    But then if you are really serious you have to call out America and your Dictator/King/President (his words) for the same shit. Nobody blames the American people unless they try and pretend that not supporting Trump is 'being political' but supporting him isn't. The last thing the world needs is a dominant world power and especially one with only a state sponsored media which is the way both the UK and the USA is headed. We currently have the most racist Prime Minister in our history (and that is quite a well attended race) but even he is not calling it the Wuhan Virus. Now you can call it what you want but the fact remains that people will use that term and weaponize it. Look how here the 'open borders' trope was rushed out seconds after news spread and yet how the same tabloid Youtube watching imbecile was at the same time very quick to call anything that linked the spread of the disease to social gatherings (not least the 40 000 families attending the Lunar Banquets in Wuhan) 'fear porn'.

    @Beanz your very first fucking post in this thread was you rolling up in the speech police cruiser.

    You declared all those who wished to call the virus Wuhan/Chinese coronavirus as "racists"....'You're not a racist if you call it that, BUT'


    Thanks for the warning Officer Beanz


    Whereas all I said was "You're not racist or xenophobic for calling it the Wuhan or China/Chinese virus. It's where the virus originated and the government who has lied about it/suppressed information about it.

    China does not house A singular race anymore than any other nation.

    Hope this helps"


    Sooooo where am I being "politically correct" or "a victim" exactly?

    So your admitting that you constantly lie then? This is you telling lies again. Either that or you are intellectually challenged .

    You repost me explicitly saying that "calling the virus the Wuhan Virus does not make you a racist" as evidence of me calling people who use the term 'Wuhan Virus' racists.


    You literally just made it up.

    Ha!


    And yes you are massively obsessed with political correctness. That is why just the very fact that i dare express an opinion is seen by you as an attack on your rights. You sound like a camp actor mincing around and then crying about being called effeminate. Nobody is stopping you being you, let alone telling the rest of the forum off. You are the one acting like the Cop from village people turning up in your leather chaps and forcing people to do silly dance routines even when they don't like Disco.

    You're not racist or xenophobic for calling it the Wuhan or China/Chinese virus. It's where the virus originated and the government who has lied about it/suppressed information about it.

    China does not house A singular race anymore than any other nation.

    Kabonger you wouldn’t believe how people reacted. I don’t think big D would last to long on that watch forum. I’m sure watches are a white supremacy thing anyway. Probably invented by white people so they could be on time for klan meetings

    I remember you had a nice Breitling X. Any other watches? A nice omega seamaster or speedy. If you have any watches you are thinking of selling let me know.
