Everybody was “Kung Flu” fighting!

According to Alexander Nazaryan of Yahoo News, “In a press conference on Wednesday morning, President Trump defended his efforts to brand the coronavirus epidemic as a specifically Chinese disease. Although it did originate there, Trump’s critics have said blaming China for the outbreak is xenophobic and racist.”

Hmmm…, that’s odd…, President Trump’s critics calling him xenophobic and racist!

Couldn’t we have just assumed that?

Just sayin’.

‘“Why do you keep calling this the Chinese virus?’” ABC reporter Cecilia Vega asked The President, “during a briefing with the White House coronavirus task force.”

“The reporter noted that there has been a rise of racist incidents, some of them violent, against people of Asian origin across the United States.”

Oh, really, Ms. Vega?

I haven’t heard about any of these “racist incidents… against people of Asian origin across the United States.”

Especially due to The President referring to COVID-19 as “the Chinese virus.”

How exactly are you able to make that connection, Ms. Vega?

Is this one of those liberal propaganda scenarios like the video that supposedly caused the Benghazi attack?

Perhaps you’d be willing to share more details and facts about these “incidents” you refer to?

I’m sure you heard about the “incidents” through unnamed sources who heard about the “incidents” second or third hand.

If there were actual racial “incidents,” I’m sure your network and organization (ABC) would be more than excited to shine their light on them.

I won’t be holding my breath waiting for these stories to surface, however.

‘“It’s not racist at all,’ [President] Trump said in defending his and his allies’ use of terms like ‘the Chinese virus’ and ‘the Wuhan virus,’ a reference to the city where it originated. ‘It comes from China, that’s why,’ the president continued. ‘It comes from China. I want to be accurate.’”

“Beijing has also promoted conspiracy theories that include blaming members of the U.S. military for causing the pandemic, something that clearly displeases [President] Trump. ‘That can’t happen,’ he said of that allegation. ‘It’s not going to happen. Not as long as I am president.’”

The White House later accused the media of “fake outrage” after the press conference:

“Spanish Flu. West Nile Virus. Zika. Ebola. All named for places.

Before the media’s fake outrage, even CNN called it the ‘Chinese Coronavirus.’

Those trying to divide us must stop rooting for America to fail and give Americans real info they need to get through the crisis.  — The White House (@WhiteHouse) March 18, 2020”

That’s right…, in the past we have had the Spanish flu, the West Nile Virus, the Asian flu, and the Hong Kong flu.

Nobody was crying about any racism or xenophobia in those cases.

Perhaps you should do a little research about a subject before you go shooting your mouth off about it, Ms. Vega?

Isn’t that a novel idea?

I don’t know what’s worse…, your journalistic deficiencies or having to listen to your condescending tone…, albeit fraudulent and stupidly elitist in nature.

achinav 1

BAM!

Take that Cecelia Vega!

David Knowles of Yahoo News reports, “The virus appears to have originated at Huanan live-animal market in Wuhan [China]. Of the first 41 people infected with the virus, 27 had gone to the market, which sells and kills animals, some of them wild, for consumption, Vox reported. In 2002, officials traced the outbreak of the SARS virus to a market in southern China that also sold live, wild animals for food.”

“China’s so-called ‘wet markets’ arose in the 1970s, when famine killed millions there. In 1978, China’s Communist government allowed private farming, and a decade later it legalized the private industry of raising and selling wildlife.”

“The unsanitary conditions of these markets and storage of animals in crates on top of one another has been blamed for the transmission of viruses between species. In the initial stages of the SARS outbreak, Chinese officials withheld information on the number of people infected and later conceded it was ‘not well prepared’ for the epidemic.”

Nice.

I believe, like President Trump, that China fully deserves to take the credit, again, for this latest virus…, “The Chinese Virus,” or “The Wuhan Virus,” and that there’s nothing xenophobic or racist about it.

Is our response to the coronavirus unrealistic?

I see that this event is getting cancelled, and that school is closing down, and these games are being suspended, and any plans that involve interactions with people are being changed.

We’re wearing masks, washing our hands 20 times a day, and consuming hand sanitizer like never before.

Is it all really necessary?

Are these new “health” practices going to end up being more harmful than helpful?

I mean, the regular old annual flu is way more dangerous than the coronavirus is.

acorona3 1

Are we setting a precedent now where we’re going to implement all of these travel bans and event cancellations and school closures every new flu season?

acorona3 4

acorona3 5

acorona3 6

How can we not now?

How can we pretend one is more dangerous than the other?

How can we put all of these restrictions in place to avoid one virus but not another?

Does that make any sense?

Why have we been willing to just go about our normal everyday lives with the flu virus lurking out there, behind every cough, every sneeze, every handshake, and all of our everyday interactions?

Why is risking getting the flu any less risky than getting the coronavirus?

acorona3 2

Why were we one day completely okay with the potential of catching the flu and the next day completely freaking out over the possibility of catching something that’s not even as bad?

Oh…, and just a reminder…, during the 2018-2019 flu season [November thru April, or about six months], 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died.”

And that’s only in the U.S.

The seasonal flu kills between 291,000 and 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to estimates.

Again…, it doesn’t make any sense.

Worldwide 4,756 people have died due to the coronavirus as of today.

But making sense is not the strong suit of the democrats or their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

It is not a requirement either.

acorona3 7

In fact, a situation like this is a perfect one for the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

Why?

Because it’s a situation that The President can’t win.

Have we been able to eliminate the flu?

No.

Will we be able to eliminate the coronavirus?

Probably not.

And certainly not anytime soon.

And as long as the coronavirus hangs around, the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media can stand back, whip up the hysteria, and take pot shots at him.

acorona3 3

Boy…, the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media friends are sure desperate to gain political control over this country again, aren’t they?

They are just hell-bent on destroying this country and our way of life.

That’s exactly why we have to stand strong and make sure they don’t get the chance.

At some point, people will get tired of living in fear and living in a bubble, and they’ll say screw it, just like they had been doing, and they’ll go back to living their lives again, and maybe they’ll get the flu along the way.

Death toll hits 14,000!  But I’m not talking about the coronavirus.

The 14,000 deaths, at least, that I’m talking about is from the annual flu bug in the United States.

So where’s all of the hysteria about that?

14,000 deaths!

And 14,000 deaths is on the low end of the national estimate.  That number could be as high as 36,000!

The latest number we have for coronavirus related deaths is…, 22.

Yeah…, that’s right…, just 2-2.

acorona2 1

Additionally, according to the “Advisory Board” website, “The 2019-2020 flu season has seen the most pediatric deaths in a decade.”

“This flu season has been especially bad for children, according to the CDC. The latest CDC report shows 92 pediatric deaths had been reported as of Feb. 8, the highest number by week since the 2009-2010 flu season, in which 262 pediatric deaths had occurred by this point in the season, according to CDC.”

“ScienceAlert” website reports that, “Parents are understandably concerned. But it’s important to keep in mind that comparatively few children have tested positive for the coronavirus, and deaths in children are very rare.”

“The number of reported COVID-19 cases in children remains low: of more than 44,000 confirmed cases from China, only 416 (less than 1 percent) were aged nine years or younger. No deaths were reported in this age group.”

“The majority of children and adolescents with COVID-19 in China had mild infections and recovered within one to two weeks.”

So the regular old annual flu virus is considerably more dangerous for children that the coronavirus.  In fact, it appears the coronavirus isn’t dangerous for children at all.

Have we heard the fake news media reporting this?

In fact, it appears that the coronavirus isn’t really dangerous at all, except to elderly people and people who are already experiencing some form of disease or illness.

Have we heard the fake news reporting this?

The “Advisory Board” website goes on to say “Between 26 million and 36 million people have been stricken with the flu as of Feb. 8, according to the latest CDC data.”

Again…, “Between 26 MILLION and 36 MILLION people have been stricken with the flu [in the U.S.] as of Feb. 8, according to the latest CDC data.”

And we have that many cases and we already have a vaccine for the flu!

And how many people have been diagnosed with the coronavirus?

Around 500.

That’s right…, 500.

26,000,000-36,000,000 versus 500.

Oh…, but the world is coming to an end because of the coronavirus!

acorona2 3

acorona2 5

The hysteria being created by the fake news media and the democrats is obviously politically motivated.

Just looking at the numbers, what else could explain their reporting regarding the suppression of the flu figures and the hype of the coronavirus numbers?

As usual, what we have here is the democrats taking advantage of a crisis…, albeit a manufactured crisis.

acorona2 4

acorona2 42

If the fake news media and the democrats were really concerned about our wellbeing, they would be putting the coronavirus in the proper perspective and being more outspoken about the dangers of the flu virus.

It’s as simple as that.

If you could catch the virus from watching TV or reading a paper, they wouldn’t be hyping it.  I guarantee you that!

You scared of the Coronavirus? 

Were you as scared of the flu, we’re all so familiar with, a month or two ago?

Based on the numbers, if you’re going to be scared, you should be just as scared of the flu…, actually you should be much more scared of the flu!

According to Jamie Ducharme of TIME Magazine, even though we have vaccines for the flu, “In total, the CDC estimates that up to 42.9 million people got sick during the 2018-2019 flu season [November thru April, or about six months], 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died.”

And that’s only in the U.S.

Currently 2 people have died from the Coronavirus in the U.S.

Two.

The MedicineNet website reports that, “Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate.”

Wait…, what’s that again?

The MedicineNet website reports that, “Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate.”

The flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year!!!

Joshua Berlinger, Jessie Yeung, Adam Renton, Mike Hayes, Rachel Bowman and Meg Wagner of CNN say the, “Coronavirus death toll tops 3,000.”

That’s in the two months of January and February of 2020.

3,000.

The good old seasonal flu we’re used to “kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year.”

Again…, that’s 291,000 to 646,000!

aflu 3

And you’re all worked up about the Coronavirus?

Now why would that be?

Hmmm, let me think.

Could it be because the fake news, liberal propaganda is blowing the Coronavirus all out of proportion?

I believe the answer to that question is “yes.”

aflu 8

I mean…, 291,000 to 646,000 people have been dying from the flu year after year after year after year, and no one seemed to be making a big deal about it.

Am I wrong?

And now 3,000 have died from the Coronavirus and the fake news media and the disingenuous democrat leadership are all losing their minds?

aflu 4

Why are these 3,000 people so special, compared to the 291,000 to 646,000 people that annually from the flu now?

Denise Grady, of The New York Times, reports, “As the United States recorded its first coronavirus death Saturday…, Americans wondered how to measure this new threat against a more familiar foe: influenza.”

“President Donald Trump, a self-described ‘germaphobe,’ said Wednesday he was amazed to learn that tens of thousands of Americans died from the flu each year, contrasting that number with the 60 or so known to be infected with the coronavirus. On Friday, [President] Trump accused the news media and Democrats of exaggerating the dangers of the virus.”

Isn’t that obvious?

And getting the Coronavirus is not a “death sentence.”  In fact most people are able to recover from the virus, just like most people are able to recover from the flu.

aflu 6

“Both the coronavirus and influenza are most dangerous to people who are older than 65, or have chronic illnesses or a weak immune system.

“There seems to be another important difference: The flu appears far more dangerous to children, particularly very young ones, who can become severely ill. Children infected with the new coronavirus tend to have mild or no symptoms.”

“As of Feb. 22, in the current [flu] season there were at least 32 million cases of flu in the United States, 310,000 hospitalizations and 18,000 flu deaths, according to the CDC. Hospitalization rates among children and young adults this year have been unusually high.”

aflu 1

So again, I ask you, where is the panic and finger pointing regarding our current flu numbers?

The current flu numbers are far, far worse compared to the current Coronavirus numbers.

“Doctors can recommend only the usual remedies for [ANY] viral illness: rest, medicine to reduce pain and fever, and fluids to avoid dehydration.”

We’ve all been there, haven’t we?

These “remedies,” “…can lessen the severity of the illness and shorten its course by a day or so, and they may lower the risk of serious complications.”

Anyway…, hopefully, I’ve managed to calm you down about the Coronavirus, raise your awareness about the flu, and raise your awareness as to how the fake news media and the disingenuous democrat leadership attempt to control and manipulate “the news.”
