During the May 11 City Council meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Matt Rahn unjustly maligned fellow Council Member Jessica Alexander for her reference to the Covid-19 virus as China Virus. Matt Rahn is simply parroting Chinese Communist Party (CCP) talking points while also failing to note that in late 2019 and early 2020, the virus was routinely called Wuhan Virus and Chinese Virus throughout our American establishment and major news media outlets.
It was only after the Beijing-approved talking point by the China Xinhua News and intense behind the scenes lobbying by Chinese Communists that the narrative moved from Wuhan Virus and Chinese Virus to Covid-19. This CCP regime driven messaging was done to deny the Chinese government’s culpability and responsibility to the world for the release and subsequent cover-up of the virus from Wuhan China.
The CCP went even further by buying off the United Nation’s World Health Organization to advance this narrative that the virus emanated from somewhere other than China. It’s been widely reported that the WHO has lost lots of credibility as it now seems to be a mere puppet carrying water for the CCP regime.
Rahn seems to have carelessly forgotten this recent history as to the origins of the virus along with the subsequent and continued cover-up and public manipulation by the Orwellian Chinese government. Meanwhile the CCP mafia continues a systematic program of persecution, repression, rape, torture and genocide against Chinese Christians, Muslim Uighurs, Falun Gong practitioners, Tibetan Buddhists, and various political dissidents up to and including the once free people of Hong Kong.
Why is Matt Rahn carrying water for this psychopathic Chinese Communist regime? Perhaps the illustrious Race, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Commission could come up with some recommendations for Temecula so that the city can properly distance itself from the hateful and brutal tyrants holding the Chinese people hostage.
Suffice it to say that this current version of the People’s Republic of China is ill-suited to participate in any Sister Cities Program with our city of Temecula. And suffice it to also say that one city council member has reminded everyone of the Cold War term “useful idiot,” often attributed to Vladimir Lenin, by demonstrating his susceptibility to promoting Chinese Communist propaganda. Matt Rahn owes an apology to Jessica Alexander.
In the same vein Council Member Zak Schwank also rather ignorantly pontificated that a governor’s diktat compelling Californians to wear a mask is not a civil rights issue. Sixty years ago, certain governors issued other diktats compelling citizens to sit in certain areas or access to certain public facilities based upon race.
When considering that our current California governor has issued a variety of edicts that have been ruled as unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court five times … let’s repeat that again … FIVE TIMES … then the only logical conclusion is that Gavin Newsom has been violating the rights of millions of Californians through his diktats.
In another era, a woman like Rosa Parks was unconstitutionally denied her seat on a public bus. In this era, millions of Californians were denied their seats in church pews and they were denied their rights to freedom of religion, freedom of speech (no singing at church, with or without masks), freedom of assembly, due process, etc.
Zak Schwank owes an apology to Council Member Jessica Alexander. Schwank’s vapid moral preening and virtue signaling do not belong on the dais. These should be kept somewhere more private, like a bathroom, then flushed down the toilet … repeatedly.
Messrs. Rahn and Schwank ought to instead direct their ire toward and demand apologies from the incompetent California governor who issued unconstitutional edicts against Californians wanting to exercise their unalienable rights, and from the criminal mafia that is the Chinese Communist Party.
Unfortunately, no one should hold their breath expecting apologies from any of these characters anytime soon.
Thank you for your time and attention.
Boy, I’d love to have been a fly on the wall in any one of their homes when they read that letter...
