UC-Davis Student Newspaper Cries About Anti-Chinese Communist Party Graffiti Being ‘Xenophobic’

The University of California-Davis student newspaper The California Aggie is coming to the defense of the Chinese Communist Party per a College Fix report.

In an article released on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, (it is archived here in the even that it’s changed) reporter Alex Weinstein calls a message criticizing the CCP “xenophobic.”

On Tuesday morning a shipping container on the UC-Davis campus “was graffitied [sic] with xenophobic rhetoric that read, ‘The Chinese Communist Party = a danger to society,’ accompanied by a crudely drawn photo of a man wearing a surgical mask,” Weinstein reported the following:

This graffiti is part of a rise in racist and xenophobic propaganda all over the world, taking place in the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic thought to have originated in Wuhan, China. From the alleged assault of an Asian teenager on a Philadelphia subway to #ChineseDontComeToJapan trending on Japanese twitter ー these incidents seem to be increasing in frequency.

The Associated Students, University of California, Davis (ASUCD) released a statement on March 16 urging the UC Davis community to abide by its Principles of Community by rejecting “xenophobia and discrimination attached to the coronavirus.” It doesn’t say anything about political criticism being prohibited, but highlights that “the virus is not targeted to a specific racial population, nor should it be treated as such.”

Some universities believe in being politically correct, rather than upholding free speech.

In effect, they’ve become useful tools for our politically correct masters and are now de facto mouthpieces for the Chinese Communist Party.
