Trump, Pompeo give SARS-CoV-2 an ethnically loaded moniker.
FPMag sources in the world healthcare community are incensed at the Donald Trump Administration for its attempt at pumping his violent, xenophobic base against Asians.
Japanese art director Rosa Yamamoto has been attacked repeatedly as being a Chinese citizen and a cause of the current SARS-CoV-2 virus and the COVID-19 illness.
“Singaporeans, South Koreans, Filipinos and Indonesian medical workers have been accused of being authors of the COVID-19 illness,” says Katie alsop of The RINJ Foundation.
“There isn’t a darker, stinkier place in the Kybo than the one Trump chose for America to reside when he starts renaming the SARS-CoV-2 something ethnically loaded,” suggests Yamamoto who says she is tired of being called racist names normally used against another race of Asians.
Unable to make COVID-19 vanish with lies and distortions, Trump has ordered his sycophants to blame China. Pompeo leads the charge. He is the foreign affairs appointee.
“Calling Mike Pompeo a Secretary of Foreign Affairs is the ultimate oxymoron,” suggests Beverley Baldock, a security specialist in Syria, commenting on an article in Forbes headlined, “‘Despicable Practice’: China And Trump Officials Clash Over Calling COVID-19 The ‘Wuhan Virus’”
Readers may find truthful and instructive the World Health Organization (WHO) report on the WHO-China-joint-mission-on-COVID-19.
Some suggest an alarming change in attitude toward USA.
“America’s reputation has become so bad that even the authoritarian ASEAN-region leader Rodrigo Duterte threw the Americans out of the Philippines and welcomed the Chinese,” comments nurse Sara Qin from Wuhan on 腾讯QQ.
But according to one nurse who doesn’t want to be named because she fears reprisals, “an American junior officer in the military told me that his superiors had bribed officials in Manila and the American ouster will not last.”
“Probably there is no greater insult to the American government. Duterte is labelled [in a de facto sense] as a Mass Murderer by the United Nations General Assembly, the UN Human Rights Commission and the lawyers filing cases with the International Criminal Court and most of the global Civil Society, like it or not; agree or not, it is that way,” notes Karinna Angeles, a native Filipino and a Pacific Region administrator for the global civil society group, The RINJ Foundation.
She also goes on to say that “people outside the Philippines do not benefit from a close look” hence do not see the good work for the country done by the current leadership.
Angeles is a nurse working in a southern province of the Philippines.
She is an occasional supporter of the current President who says “my support for the President is now fragile especially with the apparent disregard for the wellbeing of Filipinos during the COVID-19 crisis which currently has thousands of suspected infections identified by regional healthcare workers who have been told to ‘shut up’ because there are no tests and there is no health care system outside Manila for the 70 million people living in deep or quasi-poverty. The Manila health care system has already taken a huge financial budget cutback and so bigwigs are scrambling to protect their kleptocratic empires. That leaves ordinary people exposed in the Philippines and in America where the corrupt leadership puts themselves first. At least that is something President Duterte has also opposed in addition to disallowing American soldiers impregnating Filipino children.”
Donald Trump is trying to put the SARS-CoV-2 on Asians because he knows that he has already built a hate-storm against China.
The sad part of this is that Vietnamese, Thai, Filipinos, Koreans, Japanese, Laotians, Cambodians, Malaysians, Indonesians, Indians and more are all lumped into the same categories by these racists. That’s more than half the world’s population.
The White House has betrayed all Americans, Maybe the World
