San Antonio City Council: Hate Speech Is More Dangerous Than The Virus Itself

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) – San Antonio City Council has approved a resolution ‘combating hate speech’ in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg proposed the resolution, citing hate crimes, discrimination and aggression against Asians and members of the Jewish community across the country.

It states that COVID-19 is a public health issue, not a racial, religious or ethnic one, and that the use of terms such as “Chinese virus” or “Kung Fu virus” encourages hate crimes against Asians. The resolution also says the Jewish community has been targeted with blame and conspiracy theories about spreading COVID_19 and profiting from the virus.

Resolution being voted on by San Antonio City Council this morning labels terms "Chinese Virus" and "Kung Fu Virus" as hate speech and "all persons are encouraged to report any such antisemitic, discriminatory or racist incidents to the proper authorities for investigation". pic.twitter.com/jV6tKnQrRD

This is NUTS. SA City Council behaving like a lefty college faculty lounge, triggered by Chick-fil-A & the words “Wuhan virus.” If they want to investigate someone, start with NYT & CNN who both repeatedly (and rightly) referred to it as “the Chinese coronavirus.” #NoSpeechPolice https://t.co/a10BZAvleQ

Math is hard for these people. The deaths from the virus to date in the U.S. is approximately 77,000. I doubt that hate speech will equal that any time soon.

IOW, the current San Antonio city council is unfit for office, has always been, and is always going to be.

There’s no such thing as “hate speech.”

Saying “chinese virus” is not hate speech.

You guys, this is disturbing. Saw this yesterday. No. My city, San Antonio, is as suggested, indeed not an urban utopia. The residents have accepted an invasion from south of the border withou a whimper. They stare me down when I tell hatefu invaders to speak English. Now evolved to not I’m not learning Spanish to no I’m not speaking inglish with a Mexican accent

There is a hatred from the invaders for America. The San Antonians red carpet the invaders. It is loathsome

There is nothing here. A river walk one story down overlooking a creek

Good weather. Affordable housing Doh

The worst department of transporatation ever. The roads are death traps.

This city council has nothing better to do than vote unanimously to outlaw a constitutional right. This had better get turned over. The precedent is awful to say the least.

‘ Are all big cities in Texas taken over by loony leftists?’

Yes. Think Joachin and Julio Castro and their la rasa family

Think Greg papawhositz coach of the Spurs and his virulent hate speech. Hmm wondering re his relation to the Chinese worshipping NBA officials.

I disagree. TRUTH is the new HATE SPEECH.

Oh yes, that. I see.

I’d forgotten, but I remember that.

Hard to believe San Antonio doesn’t have a Chik fil a.
