It says much – and none of it good – that the two main priorities of Democrats in the midst of the Wuhan virus outbreak in America seem to be to a) frequently lie about the Trump administration’s response to it and b) cry “racism” every time a Republican correctly refers to the virus as the Wuhan virus.

Such was again the case with Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) when she took to the Twitter machine to join in on PelosiCo.’s efforts to politicize the heck out of the Wuhan virus by accusing House GOP Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) of racism.

McCarthy, you see, referred to the virus, which originated in Wuhan, China, as the “Chinese coronavirus”:

This outraged Omar, who absurdly claimed that “viruses don’t have nationalities” before asserting McCarthy was guilty of racism:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) noticed Omar’s accusation, and proceeded to set the record straight:


Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) also took note of Omar’s tweet, and called her and her party out for their predictable yet tiresome methods of operation:

Cruz and Crenshaw both have also been two of the leading voices reminding Democrats that it is especially dangerous to be arguing in favor of open borders in the midst of the emerging Wuhan virus threats.

Rep. Omar is not the only member of the so-called “Squad” quick to flash the racism card this week. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) stated in an Instagram Live video on Tuesday night that “straight-up racism” was behind people’s decisions to avoid eating at Chinese restaurants during the Wuhan virus crisis, an allegation I debunked with receipts here.
