• Vice-President Biden, a Little Criticism for the Chi-Com’s, Please …

    Surge Summary: Instead of attacking the Trump Administration for its reaction to the Chinese government’s coronavirus perfidy, it would be nice if Democratic Vice-President Joe Biden could summon some enthusiasm toward criticizing the Chi-Com’s for their malfeasance.

    Yesterday, former Vice President Joe Biden addressed an online audience of Asian Americans.  Like most progressives today, he blasted America as a racist society and specifically targeted President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus as “nakedly xenophobic.”  Here’s what Biden said:

    “The pandemic has unleashed familiar forces of hate, fear and xenophobia that he always flames . . . that have always existed in this society.  But this president . . . has brought with it a new rash of racial messages, verbal and physical attacks and other acts of hate, some subtle, some overt, against the Asian American and Pacific Islanders.”

    There are only two things Biden can be referring to: The travel ban, which Biden roundly condemned, and the president referring to the coronavirus as “the Chinese virus,” just like we refer to the 1918 pandemic as “the Spanish flu.”

    What Biden still refuses to do is show this kind of determination and energy in attacking communist China for its responsibility for what Beijing has done to the United States and to many other nations around the world.

    Refusing to call Covid-19 “the Chinese coronavirus” is one thing, although it shows just how much the progressive left looks at every issue through the prism of tribal identity.  And it no doubt influenced Biden to attack the travel ban as “hysterical xenophobia.”

    But it is inconceivable that “Beijing Biden” would have stopped travel from China.  His view that cutting off travel from a country where a deadly virus is rapidly spreading amounts to “hysterical xenophobia” borders on insanity.

    The views here are those of the author and not necessarily Daily Surge.
