Revisiting The “Political Correctness” That May Have Helped Coronavirus Speed Along In Italy

My wife wanted Chinese food for lunch today.

I was hesitant but gave in.

In small towns like mine, our Chinese restaurant owners and employees often fly home.

Call me paranoid but I’m taking the coronavirus threat seriously.

Many are not.

One of those who did not take the threat as seriously as I would have is the Mayor of Florence, Italy.

From Defend Europa:

“I’m not a virus. I’m a human. Eradicate the prejudice” were the most heard words during this pathetic politically correct campaign in order to keep the Italian’s guard down and fight so-called ‘racism’. Looks like nature does not care about your virtue signal after all.

In a Chinese propaganda video by CCTV, from early February, we can see multiple people in the socialist champagne cities of Tuscany, hugging people of Asian origin, as the words “I’m not a virus, I’m a human. Eradicate the prejudice” are shown throughout the video. The mayor of Florence himself, Dario Nardella at the time has suggested residents hug Chinese people in order to ‘encourage them in the fight against the novel coronavirus’. It went exactly as you did expect.

The hilarious video’s comments actually share the same concern and the ‘I told you so’ mood.

If you want any more proof that politically correctness kills and it’s utter stupidity, at the time of this writing, the outcome of this pathetic virtue-signalling attempt resulted in Italy becoming the country with the most coronavirus cases in Europe, with 14 deaths and 528 cases. Bear in mind that this virus does the most damage in people with weak immune systems such as diabetics and the elderly, and Italy currently has one of the most aged populations in the entire planet, with almost 1/4 of its population being aged 65 and over.

Entire towns and regions in Italy have been so far quarantined and numerous cases have spread to other European countries from people who have been in North and Central Italy, with Marine Le Pen in neighbouring France suggesting closing the borders with Italy until the situation is contained.

Italy’s nationalist LEGA party leader, Matteo Salvini has also said that this situation would never have happened if he were in charge of Italy’s borders, calling on the leftist Giuseppe Conte to resign if he cannot defend his country’s borders.



That’s political correctness for you.

Upon dining at my local Chinese restaurant today I did not take the time to hug every single Chinese employee in the establishment.

I must be a bigot for not doing so.

People need to start using their heads folks.

The threat is REAL and it is in America.

Political correctness is like a cult.

People will do anything to prove they are not a bigot.

Sometimes that gets them killed.

Hugging Chinese people in Italy may not have done anything to actually accelerate the Coronavirus outbreak in the country.

But I am curious.

Would you have done it?

I would not have, under current circumstances…

Under normal conditions, I’d hug them a long time.
