Conservative gatekeeper Jonah Goldberg wrote a piece titled “Debating Virus Terminology is a Waste of Energy” trying to play the role of “reasonable” conservative during the ongoing PC debate about how to refer to the current pandemic —originating in Wuhan, China — shocking the entire world.
In typical fashion, he tries to play the centrist role by calling out some members of the leftist media while also taking some of the most effective conservatives in Congress to task.
He specifically singled out Arizona Congressman Paul Gosar:
While it’s not racist to refer to it as the Chinese coronavirus or Wuhan virus, there are people on the right eager to play into the very stereotype the left is decrying by refusing to use the official name. This brouhaha started in large part because of a “Wuhan virus” tweet by Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., a crackpot fond of playing footsie with white supremacist idiots. (He’s claimed, among other things, that the 2017 “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was a left-wing stunt possibly funded by George Soros.)
Never mind that Charlottesville police engaged in one of the most heinous examples of anarcho-tyranny and let leftist radicals operate with virtual impunity at the event, which escalated tensions and led to a fatal confrontation.
Goldberg called out President Donald Trump as well for trying to capitalize on this crisis:
Others have a more serious agenda. Some people, deeply committed to the new nationalist cause and the effort to paint China as an enemy of the United States, have jumped on this crisis as an opportunity to further stigmatize China. After all, a crisis is a terrible thing to waste. That’s why President Trump tweeted on Tuesday, “We need the Wall more than ever!”
What Goldberg doesn’t get is that the Wuhan virus outbreak is not a pretext to justify overreach, but instead demonstrates Trump’s 2016 concerns about globalism — the pitfalls of unrestricted movement of people and “free trade” with despotic regimes with questionable environmental standards. Because of these recent developments, Trump should not hesitate to flex his muscles against globalism by closing the border and passing America First immigration restriction policies.
Goldberg has a long history of moving to the Left on issues ranging from immigration to gay marriage, so he can never be counted on to be an effective advocate nor ally to America First causes.
And you wonder why so-called “conservatives” can’t conserve anything of value?
Cleveland Indians are Joining in the PC Radicalism by Discussing a Name Change
Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.
The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.
“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.
The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”
“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”
In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.
The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.
The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
