There are a lot of dumb things being said about the coronavirus, aka COVID-19, aka the Wuhan flu ain’t nothin’ to f*** with, aka everyone was kung flu fighting. If you think your side doesn’t have a bad take about it, you most likely have a bad take about it. Sound fair? I don’t really care if it doesn’t. I’m mostly here to LOL at Rep. AOC’s latest dumb thing (see AOC Compares Women to Dogs, Babies to Puppies in Demands for More Family Leave and AOC: Lift Yourself Up by Your Bootstraps? “Physically Impossible” [VIDEO]). If you are avoiding eating at a Chinese restaurant over fears of catching the kung flu, she sees you.

Honestly, it sounds almost so silly to say, but there’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism.
Where people are literally not patroning Chinese restaurants, um, they’re not patroning Asian restaurants because of just straight-up racism around the coronavirus.
First, I’m not a racist. Some of my best friends are ethnic food. Case in point, AOC dropped this latest brain turd on Taco Tuesday.
#TacoTuesday. First time making refried beans. I know some taco purists have an issue with the tortilla boats. But they can suck it.
Also, why is it refried beans when you don’t even fry anything the first time? pic.twitter.com/HnFeidWH0f

Second, not going for Chinese food does not a racist make. Maybe they wanted to check out the new shawarma place down the block. Maybe they had a taste for Ethiopian food and wanted to eat something off of a sponge. Maybe the person is Jewish and it’s not Christmas Day.
Now, could some people be avoiding the sweet and sour combination platter because they don’t want to catch coronavirus? Of course. Those people most likely are avoiding Corona beer too, after spending $50 on the last bottle of Purell and stocking up on toilet paper. Because toilet paper is something we need to stock up on? That one confuses me. However, this “racist person” is most likely the same person brawling in the isle of Costco over the last roll of Charmin. People are silly. That doesn’t make them “straight-up racist.”
We’re way too quick to call something racist. I say “we.” What I really mean is leftists like AOC.
Also, if someone can explain the toilet paper thing to me, hit me up in the comment section.
