As Coronavirus Spreads, UK Schools Really Concerned About “Xenophobia.” No, Seriously.

(Tea Party 247) – It was only a matter of time before the collective insanity that is modern political correctness reared its ugly head in the face of the growing, Chinese-based Wuhan coronavirus.

Summit News reports that the UK Boarding Schools’ Association is much more worried about the feelings of Chinese people than it is about the health and safety of their students, apparently, warning that so-called “xenophobia” against Chinese people will not be tolerated.

Seriously? It’s “xenophobic” to worry about not getting a deadly virus?

Summit News explains:

Despite the fact that there have been no such recorded instances of “xenophobia” by the Association, it “issued new instructions that its members should be watchful for prejudice against Chinese pupils by others, be it online or in person.”

Schools were warned to “stay alert for any signs of xenophobia by students towards one another, or by any external audiences, either in school or on social media sites.”

“Such behaviour should not be tolerated and action should be taken against anyone acting in this way,” said the Association, despite its spokesperson admitting, “We have not heard of anything happening in our schools.”

Thank God courageous school authorities have their finger on the pulse amidst a rapidly spreading potential pandemic and have faced up to the real threat it poses to large numbers of people gathered in close spaces; That threat being that someone might get offended.

“What does it say about the West that our ‘authorities’ appear to be more concerned with stopping the spread of ‘xenophobia’ than stopping the spread of a global pandemic which could kill millions?” Chris Menahan asked.

It is important to keep in mind that although China has banned selling bizarre animals in markets across the country, including bat and snake, and although experts have linked these markets with the outbreak of the virus, progressive media outlets have insisted that criticizing the Chinese people for eating dangerous animals is racist.

One example is the above tweet from David Farrier, who wrote, “had a few people tell me now that the coronavirus is due to people eating whole bats in soup. for one thing, not true. second thing: get used to the idea that people eat different stuff to you.”

Summit News responds:

Chinese people kill and eat 10-20 million dogs every single year, David. Should we “get used” to that idea too?

Also, eating bats is gross, no matter who does it and in what country.
