Seattle’s top cop urges residents to call 911 if they hear ‘racist name-calling’
by Breck Dumas on April 1, 2020 at 01:50
Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best has taken the time during the coronavirus pandemic to issue a public service announcement encouraging the residents of Washington state to call emergency services to report any incident of “racist name-calling.”What are the details?Chief Best joined forces with retired local news anchor Lori Matuskawa to record her “chief’s brief” update urging folks to turn in anyone suspected of committing such a “hate crime,” as her city faces a continued rise in COVID-19 cases.”Washington State is no place for hate,” Best wrote in a tweet promoting the video on Monday. “In a show of solidarity, @LoriMatsukawa joined me to remind everyone that hate has no place in our community. Report hate, including racist name calling, to 911. We are here to help, and will respond to investigate. #WeGotThisSeattle.” Chief Best’s message comes amid reports from numerous outlets including The New York Times that “racial animus” against Asian-Americans has emerged since the novel coronavirus — which originated in China — spread to the United States.Indeed, there have been reports of actual hate crimes committed against Asian-Americans in recent weeks, allegedly over fears that they were spreading the virus. The Daily Beast reported Monday that a man stabbed three members of an Asian-American family at a Texas Sam’s Club earlier this month — including a 2-year-old little girl — telling the police that he believed the victims were Chinese and could be carrying the disease.Federal authorities charged the attempted murders as hate crimes due to the motivation behind the attack. But it is important to note the difference between an actual crime and using language determined to be offensive.Reason magazine Senior Editor Robby Soave argues in a recent piece that Chief Best’s call for citizens to report name-calling to the police (especially during a crisis) is “a time-wasting imperative—and one that’s at odds with the First Amendment.””This is unhelpful guidance that conflates two completely different things,” Soave writes of Best’s message. “A hate crime takes place when a person, motivated by animus, engages in criminal activity against a protected class. Importantly, the underlying action has to be criminal in nature: vandalism, assault, etc.” whereas “engaging in racist speech is not itself a criminal action.”Soave went on to point out that “inviting the police to intervene in speech-based disputes between people is a recipe for disaster,” saying that “at best, it’s wasting police officers’ time.”The Seattle Police Department did not respond to Reason’s request for comment on the matter.

WSJ report explains how China has been suppressing their statistics on coronavirus cases
by Carlos Garcia on April 1, 2020 at 01:24
China has been praised by many in the media over their apparent success in combatting coronavirus, but a new report explains how the communist country has been suppressing the statistics. A Wall Street Journal report published on Tuesday cited a top Chinese public health official who admitted that China was not counting those who tested positive without manifesting coronavirus symptoms. Chang Jile said that more than 1,500 people infected with coronavirus were not counted in the national tally because they were asymptomatic. He said that China would begin reporting the number of asymptomatic persons who tested positive on Wednesday. China has been excoriated by many for covering up the emergence of the virus in Wuhan, and for constantly perpetuating misinformation in order to divert from their government’s incompetence in managing and reporting the contagion. In one particularly egregious example, a Chinese official accused the U.S. military of introducing the virus to Wuhan. Experts agree that the most likely origin of the virus was from an infected bat being eaten by a human being in one of Wuhan’s unsanitary “wet markets.” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) was among those questioning the numbers from China and criticizing the media for reporting them without skepticism. “Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus cases than #China,” tweeted Rubio. “Beyond being grotesque,its bad journalism,” he added. “We have NO IDEA how many cases China really has but without any doubt its significantly more than why they admit to.”Here’s more about coronavirus in China: China Is Censoring Coronavirus Stories.

NBC Claims 100-240K Dead Is Trump’s ‘Best-Case Scenario’ for Country
by Nicholas Fondacaro on April 1, 2020 at 01:00
The liberal media’s fear-mongering has gotten out of control. Watchers of Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News were given the impression that the Trump administration was content with anywhere between 100,000 and 240,000 Americans dying to the coronavirus in the next few weeks. That’s because correspondent Geoff Bennett flagrantly lied and claimed that projection was their “best-case scenario.” In reality, it was far from it.
Don’t let China off the hook
by Paul Mirengoff on April 1, 2020 at 00:55
(Paul Mirengoff) Our friend Michael Auslin explains the importance of pushing back against China’s effort to deflect blame for the origin and spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. The case for holding China accountable is founded in morality, global governance, and the need to protect against future pandemics. The moral case stems from the Chinese government’s reprehensible response to the early outbreak of the pandemic there. Auslin reminds us: Chinese officials knew of
