Does Trump get any credit or are we still awarding it, like the Nobel Prize was, to the guy who waited 6 months to declare the H1N1 a national emergency?

After all....he is black.....

Note which countries are at the top, and which at the very bottom.

What would the ingrate, Ilhan Obama....er, Ilhan Omar, have to say about that?
YOU RACIST !!!!!

Terrible tale of the number of deaths in Italy......and how the Progressives are largely responsible.

See how it resonates here.


"Italy and #CoronaRacism
Mark PowellMarch 29, 2020




The health situation in Italy is dire. Tragically, over 8,000 people have died and around 80,000 people have caught COVID-19 giving it the second highest number of cases outside of China. The question is, what caused this to be the case?
Back in February, Dr Jing Zeng wrote in The Guardian that there was link whatsoever between COVID-19 and The People’s Republic of China. And those who dared to suggest that there was were guilty of #CoronaRacism.


As such, many in the mainstream media have followed the explanation of Matt Simon in Wired, who argued that there was no intercultural link at all, and that it was simply because Italy has the second-oldest population on earth. But as Marcus Roberts responded in Mercatornet:

However, this doesn’t fully explain Italy’s predicament. The oldest country in the world is Japan, and it has managed to keep the number of infections and deaths to quite low levels.

So, what did Italy do that Japan didn’t? Well, the blame should probably be laid with progressive politicians who—under the guise of combatting racism—unwittingly facilitated the virus spreading throughout the entire Italian population. As Ellen Whinnett explains in The Daily Telegraph:
The first cases were detected in Italy on January 29 when two Chinese tourists fell ill in Rome. They had flown into Milan on a tour on January 23.
The diagnoses prompted Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to immediately announce a ban on flights from China – the first country to do so – and declare a six-month state of emergency.
But there was squeamishness from some quarters about the tough action, and the Mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, launched a “hug a Chinese’’ day on February 1, calling for “unity in the common battle’’ and decrying racism against Chinese people in Italy.
The move prompted Italians to hug Chinese people in the northern Italian city and post images on social media.

Italy is now suffering one of the worst coronavirus tragedies on the planet, with around 80,000 infections, and 8215 people have died, giving the country a death rate of around 10 per cent. More people have died in Italy than in China.

This is sadly what happens when identity politics trumps common sense.

But it’s not racist to identify a certain disease as coming from a particular part of the world. (As this piece from The Federalist demonstrates, there are a plethora of diseases named after the places in which they originated). And as we’ve seen, it’s also not racist to protect the borders of one’s country from any potential threat from the outside.

Because as we’re seeing, the alternative is not only irrational, but ultimately, deadly."




Anyone notice that the same fear of the word 'racism' gave us the previous President?
Nope its the conservatives pointing the finger and placing blame before they be blamed

kudos

one is the loneliest number


Speaking of numbers.....

I posted this question, and reference to a 'number' in another thread....but it responds to your inane claim:


Let’s begin with a challenge: aside from skin-color, what are the reasons that Barack Obama deserved the nomination to the presidency? If any Obama-voter can’t provide a cogent answer, it is proof of the charge that Liberals/Democrats use emotion rather than intellect in choosing a candidate. And the party knows how to use it: the only number greater than infinity is how often they used the term ‘racist.’ That's how they silenced any critiques.
what are the reasons that Barack Obama deserved the nomination to the presidency?

He won the election just as Trump won the election

if trump was to go heads to heads with OB he would lose

I know you trying to make a racist statement but its in the history books instead ;you should focus on the sexist statement and why Hillary lost

one is the loneliest number but two ones can mean 11 or it could mean 2 if you believe it

The article is pretty clear on how the Progressives are responsible in Italy....

I wonder why the best you can do in light of this:

"The first cases were detected in Italy on January 29 when two Chinese tourists fell ill in Rome. They had flown into Milan on a tour on January 23.

Yet the typical Liberal/Progressive answer is "is not, isssssssss noooootttttttttt!!!!"



With lives in the balance, isn't it time for Progressives to pull their heads out of that dark and remote region?

well the US has a large number of cases also, , is it a progressive problem or a conservative problem

Well cut to the chase, these epidemic is not political but I know you like to make it political but its not. Its about people dying and many people afraid to leave there homes

Say something that is not bias to give them some hope

well what was the racist statement that I said because clearly I did not but you seem to believe so

So am I the racist or do you thing about racism all the time as you are the OP of this topic and mention racism first, then political racism, and finally

I do know that 1 is the loneliest number

Let’s begin with a challenge: aside from skin-color, what are the reasons that Barack Obama deserved the nomination to the presidency? If any Obama-voter can’t provide a cogent answer, it is proof of the charge that Liberals/Democrats use emotion rather than intellect in choosing a candidate. And the party knows how to use it: the only number greater than infinity is how often they used the term ‘racist.’ That's how they silenced any critiques.
what are the reasons that Barack Obama deserved the nomination to the presidency?

He won the election just as Trump won the election

if trump was to go heads to heads with OB he would lose

I know you trying to make a racist statement but its in the history books instead ;you should focus on the sexist statement and why Hillary lost

one is the loneliest number but two ones can mean 11 or it could mean 2 if you believe it


"I know you trying to make a racist statement ..."

Please don't ever write "I know" again....as you clearly know nothing.

well what was the racist statement that I said because clearly I did not but you seem to believe so

So am I the racist or do you thing about racism all the time as you are the OP of this topic and mention racism first, then political racism, and finally

I do know that 1 is the loneliest number

Terrible tale of the number of deaths in Italy......and how the Progressives are largely responsible.

See how it resonates here.


"Italy and #CoronaRacism
Mark PowellMarch 29, 2020




The health situation in Italy is dire. Tragically, over 8,000 people have died and around 80,000 people have caught COVID-19 giving it the second highest number of cases outside of China. The question is, what caused this to be the case?
Back in February, Dr Jing Zeng wrote in The Guardian that there was link whatsoever between COVID-19 and The People’s Republic of China. And those who dared to suggest that there was were guilty of #CoronaRacism.


As such, many in the mainstream media have followed the explanation of Matt Simon in Wired, who argued that there was no intercultural link at all, and that it was simply because Italy has the second-oldest population on earth. But as Marcus Roberts responded in Mercatornet:

However, this doesn’t fully explain Italy’s predicament. The oldest country in the world is Japan, and it has managed to keep the number of infections and deaths to quite low levels.

So, what did Italy do that Japan didn’t? Well, the blame should probably be laid with progressive politicians who—under the guise of combatting racism—unwittingly facilitated the virus spreading throughout the entire Italian population. As Ellen Whinnett explains in The Daily Telegraph:
The first cases were detected in Italy on January 29 when two Chinese tourists fell ill in Rome. They had flown into Milan on a tour on January 23.
The diagnoses prompted Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to immediately announce a ban on flights from China – the first country to do so – and declare a six-month state of emergency.
But there was squeamishness from some quarters about the tough action, and the Mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, launched a “hug a Chinese’’ day on February 1, calling for “unity in the common battle’’ and decrying racism against Chinese people in Italy.
The move prompted Italians to hug Chinese people in the northern Italian city and post images on social media.

Italy is now suffering one of the worst coronavirus tragedies on the planet, with around 80,000 infections, and 8215 people have died, giving the country a death rate of around 10 per cent. More people have died in Italy than in China.

This is sadly what happens when identity politics trumps common sense.

But it’s not racist to identify a certain disease as coming from a particular part of the world. (As this piece from The Federalist demonstrates, there are a plethora of diseases named after the places in which they originated). And as we’ve seen, it’s also not racist to protect the borders of one’s country from any potential threat from the outside.

Because as we’re seeing, the alternative is not only irrational, but ultimately, deadly."




Anyone notice that the same fear of the word 'racism' gave us the previous President?
Nope its the conservatives pointing the finger and placing blame before they be blamed

kudos

one is the loneliest number


The article is pretty clear on how the Progressives are responsible in Italy....

I wonder why the best you can do in light of this:

"The first cases were detected in Italy on January 29 when two Chinese tourists fell ill in Rome. They had flown into Milan on a tour on January 23.
The diagnoses prompted Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to immediately announce a ban on flights from China – the first country to do so – and declare a six-month state of emergency.
But there was squeamishness from some quarters about the tough action, and the Mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, launched a “hug a Chinese’’ day on February 1, calling for “unity in the common battle’’ and decrying racism against Chinese people in Italy.

Italy is now suffering one of the worst coronavirus tragedies on the planet, with around 80,000 infections, and 8215 people have died, giving the country a death rate of around 10 per cent. More people have died in Italy than in China. "



Yet the typical Liberal/Progressive answer is "is not, isssssssss noooootttttttttt!!!!"



With lives in the balance, isn't it time for Progressives to pull their heads out of that dark and remote region?

well the US has a large number of cases also, , is it a progressive problem or a conservative problem

Well cut to the chase, these epidemic is not political but I know you like to make it political but its not. Its about people dying and many people afraid to leave there homes

Say something that is not bias to give them some hope


I didn't "make" it political, you dunce.


The author of the article PROVED it's political: the nihilists, known as Progressives, literally embraced death rather than risk being called racist.


"The first cases were detected in Italy on January 29 when two Chinese tourists fell ill in Rome. They had flown into Milan on a tour on January 23.

Liberals/Progressives/Democrats should never....NEVER.....be in any positions of power.

Doctor Political Chic is that your diagnose.

Did American hug Chinese people to get the disease

Did any other country hug Chinese people to get the disease

Do all Chinese people have the disease

Is that how it is spreading in America because people are hugging Chinese people

Trump as a true conservative should put a stop to this and name you as the chairman of the "Don't hug a chinese person " way to avoid getting the virus

He should go on FOX and do a tweet so that the people can know

Thank you political chic for your service

Yeah like nobody know that the nomination comes before the election. That is so obvious but I would expect you to bring that up as you have no point other than to make 5th grade observations

Your using racism to make your point and in the next think you talk about the previous President and you do not believe that it is a racist statement

Quote you place in the thread from another source

the only number greater than infinity is how often they used the term ‘racist.’ That's how they silenced any critiques.

using someone's statement who talks about racism but you want to quote and then you want to pretend that you do not agree with it.

But why would you post it, if you did not agree with it ? IF it was me I would have added that I am not a racist but this is what someone else said. But I am not saying your a racist just answering your question

Then you say

Let’s begin with a challenge: aside from skin-color, what are the reasons that Barack Obama deserved the nomination to the presidency?


He was elected by the people just like Trump

So it should satisfy your challenge but you can't stand it

You played the race card even with the the but statement (aside from skin color) because you mentioned it and then try to discard it

then you pad it with give me the reason blah blah blah assuming that no one can give you a satisfying answer to your question

thus the only remaining reason was race

I provide the only answer that matters -he won-, just like Trump won. That justify any nomination.

In this world winning is everything

Just ask Trump

OK.....stop begging: here's another lesson:


Circular reasoning (Latin: circulus in probando, "circle in proving"; also known as circular logic) is a logical fallacy in which the reasoner begins with what they are trying to end with.

Circular reasoning - Wikipedia





How many times a day do perfect strangers comment on the fact that you are a moron?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circular_reasoning

It is a true statement, as you just proved.




The use of the slur 'racist' is the attempt by the Democrats/Liberals/Progressives to silence criticism that they have no way to answer.


It is exactly as I said:

The only reason you voted for Obama was skin color.


That's the obsession you Leftists have.

if there was a direct link you would have the epicentre in Tuscany not in Lombardy.

OMG!!


Another "is not, issssssss noooottttttttt!" post.



So you favor hugging and intimate contact with anyone and everyone as a defense against the far-more-dangerous disease, 'racism,' not coronavirus?




Brilliant.

"Coronavirus: How "Progressive" Ideology Led to Catastrophe in Spain
  • A class action lawsuit filed on March 19 accuses the Spanish government — highly ideological by any standard, as the Communist coalition partner, Podemos, was founded with seed money from the Venezuelan government — of knowingly endangering public safety by encouraging the public to participate in more than 75 feminist marches, held across Spain on March 8, to mark International Women's Day.

Get it???

Just like Italy.....Progressive ideology spread the disease.


"The Spanish government, comprised of a coalition of Socialists and Communists, is facing legal action for alleged negligence in its handling of the coronavirus pandemic. The government is accused of putting its narrow ideological interests ahead of the safety and wellbeing of the public, and, in so doing, unnecessarily worsening the humanitarian crisis now gripping Spain, currently the second-worst afflicted country in Europe after Italy.

Terrible tale of the number of deaths in Italy......and how the Progressives are largely responsible.

See how it resonates here.


"Italy and #CoronaRacism
Mark PowellMarch 29, 2020




The health situation in Italy is dire. Tragically, over 8,000 people have died and around 80,000 people have caught COVID-19 giving it the second highest number of cases outside of China. The question is, what caused this to be the case?
Back in February, Dr Jing Zeng wrote in The Guardian that there was link whatsoever between COVID-19 and The People’s Republic of China. And those who dared to suggest that there was were guilty of #CoronaRacism.


As such, many in the mainstream media have followed the explanation of Matt Simon in Wired, who argued that there was no intercultural link at all, and that it was simply because Italy has the second-oldest population on earth. But as Marcus Roberts responded in Mercatornet:

However, this doesn’t fully explain Italy’s predicament. The oldest country in the world is Japan, and it has managed to keep the number of infections and deaths to quite low levels.

So, what did Italy do that Japan didn’t? Well, the blame should probably be laid with progressive politicians who—under the guise of combatting racism—unwittingly facilitated the virus spreading throughout the entire Italian population. As Ellen Whinnett explains in The Daily Telegraph:
The first cases were detected in Italy on January 29 when two Chinese tourists fell ill in Rome. They had flown into Milan on a tour on January 23.
The diagnoses prompted Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to immediately announce a ban on flights from China – the first country to do so – and declare a six-month state of emergency.
But there was squeamishness from some quarters about the tough action, and the Mayor of Florence, Dario Nardella, launched a “hug a Chinese’’ day on February 1, calling for “unity in the common battle’’ and decrying racism against Chinese people in Italy.
The move prompted Italians to hug Chinese people in the northern Italian city and post images on social media.

Italy is now suffering one of the worst coronavirus tragedies on the planet, with around 80,000 infections, and 8215 people have died, giving the country a death rate of around 10 per cent. More people have died in Italy than in China.

This is sadly what happens when identity politics trumps common sense.

But it’s not racist to identify a certain disease as coming from a particular part of the world. (As this piece from The Federalist demonstrates, there are a plethora of diseases named after the places in which they originated). And as we’ve seen, it’s also not racist to protect the borders of one’s country from any potential threat from the outside.

Because as we’re seeing, the alternative is not only irrational, but ultimately, deadly."




Anyone notice that the same fear of the word 'racism' gave us the previous President?
Nope its the conservatives pointing the finger and placing blame before they be blamed

kudos

one is the loneliest number


Speaking of numbers.....

I posted this question, and reference to a 'number' in another thread....but it responds to your inane claim:


Let’s begin with a challenge: aside from skin-color, what are the reasons that Barack Obama deserved the nomination to the presidency? If any Obama-voter can’t provide a cogent answer, it is proof of the charge that Liberals/Democrats use emotion rather than intellect in choosing a candidate. And the party knows how to use it: the only number greater than infinity is how often they used the term ‘racist.’ That's how they silenced any critiques.
what are the reasons that Barack Obama deserved the nomination to the presidency?

He won the election just as Trump won the election

if trump was to go heads to heads with OB he would lose

I know you trying to make a racist statement but its in the history books instead ;you should focus on the sexist statement and why Hillary lost

one is the loneliest number but two ones can mean 11 or it could mean 2 if you believe it

Are you a moron?

You must be, as you support the Bolsheviks-lite, the Democrats.

I wrote:

You answered:

You moron.....the nomination comes before the election.
well its clear you do not understand anything so let me break it down for you

He won the election so therefor he deserved the nomination. Just like Trump

but you like to nit pick what you believe validates you point and ignore the obvious conclusion

Yeah like nobody know that the nomination comes before the election. That is so obvious but I would expect you to bring that up as you have no point other than to make 5th grade observations

"He won the election so therefor he deserved the nomination."

OK.....stop begging: here's another lesson:


Circular reasoning (Latin: circulus in probando, "circle in proving"; also known as circular logic) is a logical fallacy in which the reasoner begins with what they are trying to end with.
Circular reasoning - Wikipedia




How many times a day do perfect strangers comment on the fact that you are a moron?
He won the election, He won the nomination. There is nothing untruthful about it

yet you say

Quote -if any Obama-voter can’t provide a cogent answer, it is proof of the charge that Liberals/Democrats use emotion rather than intellect in choosing a candidate.

is that a example circular logic or any logic

Jan 22 - Trump says - “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.”
despite other government official warning that it will get worse

Jan 30 - we think it’s going to have a very good ending for us … that I can assure you.” — Trump in a speech in Michigan.

Feb 10 - Now, the virus that we’re talking about having to do — you know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat

April is here in two days

Feb. 26: “And again, when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.” — Trump at a press conference.

well as Trump makes boasts and try to sound like he is informed. Should he have been giving false information and putting a positive spin on something that was a disaster in the making. Instead of listening to the experts and preparing people with information like they are doing now. He should have done it in the beginning.

Is this the Hurricane Maria syndrome?
