The Term ‘Chinese virus’, Declared ‘Hate Speech’ By San Antonio City Council

(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – The term Chinese virus has been labelled hate speech by San Antonio’s city council.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg, who put forward the now-passed resolution, blamed the use of the terms Chinese virus and Kung Fu virus for a rise in hate speech during the course of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Texas city will now ask its citizens to report any such antisemitic, discriminatory or racist incidents to the proper authorities for investigation.

It comes after US president Donald Trump sparked criticism by referring to Covid-19 as the Chinese virus. Trump responded to complaints by saying he just meant the term geographically and would stop if it bothered Asian-Americans.
