When will people learn. Don’t apologize. Don’t bend the knee. Don’t give them an inch.

They can only be the speech police if we allow them too. Just as one must choose to Take offense

Don't give the NFL your time or attention.

In general, I agree, but in this case, I don’t. If Chinese officials told them that the television rights to the Chinese market depended on them bending the knee that would be a very material threat.

Yes. It’s part of the American Elite World Domination plan of cultural warfare to fracture their culture and make them all want a Buick and Liberty Insurance.

Especially the Mandarins and Han.

Has the Spanish Fy been renamed?? If not then China virus should be appropriate.

I would like to apologize for calling them French Fries for all these years. In no way do I feel those words should ever be said together. I did not mean to offend all the great French people in the world. It’s just horrific and offensive to them that the majority of the world wishes them all to fry. That would be a slow and excruciating death.

It's a weird construction. China isn't an adjective. You'll note that it's not called "Spain Flu" (ignoring that said flu didn't actually originate in Spain). Calling it "The Chinese Virus" is silly political pandering, in my opinion, but at least it fits normal English grammar conventions. "China virus" sounds like something a toddler would say.

ETA: And they aren't called "France Fries".

Did the Spanish intentionally or accidentally release their version of the Flu from a lab? If not, how in the world is it political pandering to acknowledge where the virus originated?

Considering it wasn't actually from Spain, this doesn't help your argument.

Actually, it does. After 100 years, we still refer to it as the Spanish Flu... regardless of where it originated.

How is China different?

I assume you mean Spanish "Flu"?

Really should be called Wichita Flu, if anything. But alternative names people use for it are Swine Flu and the 1918 Flu.

Yeah. The Spanish Flu....that originated in Kansas. And that our socialist leader at the time, Woodrow Wilson, forbade the press from reporting (sound familiar?) because he thought it would hurt the war effort. Our allies followed suit. Spain was the only country that reported on it openly, thus, The Spanish Flu.
