Dems slammed for sickening politization of coronavirus, but NYT’s ‘TrumpVirus’ takes the cake

When conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh theorized earlier this week that the institutional left is purposefully trying to politicize coronavirus to hurt President Donald Trump, he suffered mockery and derision from the institutional left.

Yet two days later, a plethora of emerging evidence has provided what appears to be an unbelievably strong bulwark for Limbaugh’s theory.

First, poorly polling Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren has called for funneling money away from border security and to coronavirus prevention programs:

It seems to many critics as if she’s blatantly trying to politicize coronavirus so as to score points against the president and perhaps boost her ailing campaign.

The evidence includes the fact that this bill would never make it through the GOP-led Senate and, more importantly, the fact that this bill makes zero sense, given that proper coronavirus prevention requires stringent border security.

“The first line of defense against coronavirus is the border. Not just figuratively. Any national border is, by definition, a literal line of defense,” Lew Jan Olowski of the Immigration Reform Law Institute notes.

“Repelling people at the border prevents them from transmitting coronavirus inside the country. Airlines and governments worldwide are taking similar measures. As a result, contagion is slowed and lives are saved.”

And it just so happens that those portions of the president’s wall that have been built thus far have succeeded in “repelling people at the border.”

Yet Warren wants to pull funding away from the wall? Why would that be?

According to critics, the only possible reasons for her proposal are that she’s trying to politicize the coronavirus crisis or she’s simply that stunningly misinformed.

If indeed her goal is to politicize the crisis, she’s not alone.

In a statement Wednesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi chastised the president for wanting to relocate money that was allocated in 2014 for the Ebola virus — which is no longer a prominent issue in the U.S. — to coronavirus prevention programs.


She also accused the Trump administration’s coronavirus response of being “anemic.”

These remarks provoked just as much criticism as Warren’s proposal.

Meanwhile, The New York Times — which is currently facing criticism for uncritically sharing misinformation and/or disinformation about Russian election interference — joined in on the politicization Wednesday by running a stunning column urging the American people to start referring to coronavirus as “Trumpvirus.”

The column prompted even more outrage than Warren’s tweet and Pelosi’s remarks.


The column’s publication comes only a month after an investigation by the Washington Free Beacon found that “China Daily, an official mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party, has published hundreds of propaganda articles designed to look like ordinary news stories in some of America’s most influential newspapers,” including the Times.
