A couple days ago this Letter to the Editor from McLean County Board member Sharon Chung appeared in the paper:
Chung is upset an amendment failed that would have removed “China” from the emergency proclamation the County passed.
Sharon, Communist China wants the same thing! Most of the media has knelt before the communists – even claiming it’s racist to say China when the virus originated in China. The majority of the McLean County Board refused to kneel.
She goes on to claim violence against Asian Americans is on the rise because people dare say the word China when it was China who unleashed it on the world. The people of China didn’t hide this pandemic, the communist government did. People who don’t know the difference between the people of China and their communist government need informed, your letter didn’t mention the people who have “disappeared” in China for trying to warn the world.
Chung called including China in the ordinance a pointless political statement. No it wasn’t Sharon. History needs to clearly state where the Wuhan Corona Virus pandemic came from and who unleashed it: Communist China. Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it. Communism is the enemy, many here have forgotten that.
If the Asian community is threatened they need to file police reports, not siffle truth and free speech of Americans. Sharon – that’s what they do in Communist China, not here.
