Maher is a dipshit of epic proportions……
I can’t believe I’m agreeing with him on ANYTHING!!!!
Throughout the course of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic, we have repeatedly heard it’s “racist” to call the virus the “Wuhan virus,” even though that’s where the outbreak began. It’s common practice to name viruses and other diseases based on where they were first discovered. Despite that, social justice warriors have been offended by the so-called “racism” behind the name.
Liberal political commentator Bill Maher on Friday slammed SJWs for giving China a pass on the Wuhan coronavirus. According to Maher, the world needs to continue being honest and speaking the truth. Part of that truth is admitting that the virus started in China.
“New rule: you can’t break a rule you just made up. Scientists, yes, scientists who are generally pretty liberal, have been naming diseases after the places they come from for a very long time……..Zika [virus] is from the Zika Forest, Ebola from the Ebola River, Hantanavirus [from the] Hantan River. There’s the West Nile virus, Guinea worm and Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and, of course, the Spanish flu. MERS stands for Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome. It’s plastered all over airports and no one blogs about it. So why should China get a pass?……… Jesus f**king Christ. Can’t we even have a pandemic without being offended?”Bill Maher
Maher reminded people that the Lyme Disease was named after Old Lyme in Connecticut yet people in the town weren’t offended or upset by the designation.
