So we're encouraging our readers to avoid problematic terms like "Wuhan virus," "Chinese coronavirus," "Kung Flu," "Black Pepper Death," "Chopsick," "Srirachoo," "Terracougha Army," or the "Great Whoop of China." Definitely don't use any of those. And certainly never name a disease, product, or cultural trend after the area it's from.

  UC Tells Students "Do Not" Say "Chinese Virus" (And "Do Not Allow" Others To Say It Either)

    .. The list begins by telling students to “reject racism, sexism, xenophobia and all hateful or intolerant speech, both in person and online,” and to “Be an ‘up-stander,’ and discourage others from engaging in such behavior.”


The Z.g officially disavows UC for promotion of crime think.

On basic principles of opposing The Ministry, it is in fact our sacred duty to poke fun at the empire and feeble snowey flakey lefties, by using politically incorrect terminology.

Let's reclaim our own damn thoughts already!

  Read my lips: it's Chi-na-vi-rus, muffaluckers!

May the University of California drown in buckets of salty liberal Cali tears!
