Racism and the Coronavirus

Think everyone knows where this pandemic started and likely reasons why. But frankly, ...really think we have more important things to get fussed about than US politics atm.

The current COVID-19 pandemic is totally independent of any politics.

“..... unlike faux claims of racism.” I should have added but for some strange reason didn’t. Fixed now.;)

We'll never be sure. Coronavirus could have been manufactured in some laboratory.

Plenty of conspiracy theories predicted this scenario.

Interesting. China is doing from today to the entire world (banning all foreigners from their shores) what Australia did a few weeks ago

I wonder if the Chinese Ambassador in Canberra will now reflect for more than a microsecond the hypocrisy of his remarks that Australia is racist because we tried to reduce imported infections.

You jest? Somehow we will be made out to be the bad guys.

Could you point me at your source - I can find no such remarks.

I did find this interview on Sky in which the Ambassador said :-

“We are deeply disappointed by the restrictive measures that have been taken because as I see it they are out of proportion," he said. “As you said it is inconsistent with the professional recommendations of the World Health Organisation. “We have expressed our strong wish and hope that the Australian government in its next review will take into account the whole situation and take a balanced approach and consider removing those harsh restrictions or at least relax restrictions.”
 
The reasons why the WHO got it so wrong are well known by those that follow UN related matters.

So .... the claim that the Chinese Ambassador accused the Australian government of being racist is fake news?

The truth is out there, but not here (as usual).
 
Probably time to lock this thread.
just going back and forwards with little chance of changing anyone's views.

Who gives a flying fig what that joker thinks or says, but I'm pretty sure some on here suggested it was a racist decision. Before you post, No, I couldn't be bothered running around on your behalf to tag a post 🤣
 
I'm not suffering sympathy pangs for any misquotes or 'fake news'. Wrong audience. Could probably include most of the word in that audience.
 
I suppose it was a futile exercise to bring in the concept of fact checking to an audience of 42%'ers .... but I had to try. :(

Lots of other forums out there with likeminded souls that would give you the captive audience and recognition you seek, where you can pontificate to the converted rather than waste your lofty lefty Occupy wisdom on us 42%ers ...do it for Greta! 😎

If YOU are happy for lies and half-truths to whip up the baying mob, then good on you. But history tells us that racism and persecution feed off misinformation and exaggeration, and if fact checks make you so defensive then maybe you spend too much time doing it for Donald!

[BTW - WTF is "lofty lefty Occupy wisdom"?]
