President Joe Biden has once again signed an Executive Order, this time he’s trying to set his sights on combating racism within government agencies by demanding they stop using “xenophobic” terms for the coronavirus such as the phrase “China virus.”
This despite the fact the point of origin for the virus is indeed China, a communist country who fudged their own numbers to save face and caused a catastrophic global pandemic that has led to staggering numbers of casualties.
Biden’s order asks organizations like the Department of Health and Human Services to determine whether or not phrases used to refer to the coronavirus are xenophobic and if they are, to remove those from guidelines and policies.
The Biden executive order is expected to “examine whether there are xenophobic references like ‘China virus’ in any existing policies, directives or government websites published by the Trump administration,” CBS News reported.
“During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, inflammatory and xenophobic rhetoric has put Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) persons, families, communities, and businesses at risk,” the order reads. “The Federal Government must recognize that it has played a role in furthering these xenophobic sentiments through the actions of political leaders, including references to the COVID-19 pandemic by the geographic location of its origin. Such statements have stoked unfounded fears and perpetuated stigma about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and have contributed to increasing rates of bullying, harassment, and hate crimes against AAPI persons.”
Former President Donald Trump was criticized during his presidency for referring to the coronavirus, which originated in China, as the “China virus.”

So the politically correct thought police are about to be out in full force. We kind of already expected this level of nonsense though, didn’t we?
This was the same guy who served under former President Barack Obama. He’s just giving us more of what he had for those eight years.
