The Zombie Apocalypse in Italy and Beyond By Brian Simpson

     Coronavirus has hit Italy, and refuted the race realists at vDare and American Renaissance, who were saying that whites may be immune to the virus. In Italy, public utilities like schools, museums, theatres and cinemas have been closed, and even the popular Venice Carnival has been cancelled. Iran, has also been hard hit, and worse is yet to come:

  https://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2020/02/24/Iranian-MP-50-dead-from-coronavirus-in-Qom-Health-Minister-to-blame-ILNA.html

“Coronavirus has killed around 50 people in Qom, the Iranian city's representative in parliament said, according to the semi-official ILNA news agency. The comments by MP Ahmad Amirabadi Farhani suggest that coronavirus is far more widepsread in Iran than previously thought. The Iranian government announced on Monday morning that the total stood at 12 in the entire country, raising questions over its reporting of the crisis. Iran's Health Ministry rejected the number on Monday afternoon. “Up until last night, around 50 people died from coronavirus. The health minister is to blame,” Amirabadi Farhani said on Monday. Ten people die in Qom daily due to the coronavirus outbreak in the city, he added. In response, Iran’s Deputy Health Minister Iraj Harirchi denied the figures and said he would resign if Amirabadi Farhani's numbers were correct. “If the number of coronavirus victims in Qom is a quarter of what media outlets are reporting, I will resign. The figure is incorrect, and we are sure of our statistics,” he said. However, Health Ministry Spokesman Kianush Jahanpour rapidly revised the total up on Monday, saying there are now 61 confirmed cases in the country. Amirabadi Farhani also criticized the government's efforts to control the virus. “Qom is in a poor state and the government has been unsuccessful in controlling the coronavirus outbreak,” he said. The government is not “worried enough” about the outbreak, he added, stating: “It is true that we should keep calm, but we must not act like nothing has happened.”

Surviving Coronavirus By John Steele

     There is plenty of material from our side of politics arguing that the coronavirus is a genetically engineered weapon. Myself and Brian are not promoting that line yet, because for all we know, this virus may not be “the big one.” Best to take a more careful approach of watchful waiting, like men are supposed to do with their ageing prostates. As the articles below indicate, the worst-case scenario is that the virus does become a pandemic, and craters the world economy. That will be the economic MZB (mutant zombie biker) scenario, where we can expect roaming gangs to be out raiding to get supplies. Oh, that is home invasion and it is in full swing now, but I suppose there will be much more.

Coronavirus (Covid-19),Africa and Beyond By Brian Simpson

     The White House is highly suspicious about China’s official statistics on the number of people infected with coronavirus (Covid-19), indicating that China is lying, something that American Renaissance magazine should consider the significance of, given their East Asian superiority thesis. Anyway, Trumpery and co are likely to be right about this because Covid-19 is more infectious than has been previously thought:

  https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-02-17-new-study-novel-coronavirus-r0-value-high.html

“Researchers from the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico have pre-published a new study in the journal medRxiv (associated with the British Medical Journal) that says the actual basic reproductive number, or R0, for novel coronavirus is somewhere between 4.7 and 6.6, as opposed to the 2.2 to 2.7 range being claimed by government health authorities. While the study has not yet been peer-reviewed as of this writing, its abstract explains that “extensive individual case reports” on this constantly evolving global outbreak reveal that the R0 estimates put forth by those “in charge” are essentially flawed. After evaluating these case reports and assessing them alongside estimated key epidemiology parameters, including the virus’ incubation period – we now know the incubation period to be closer to a month as opposed to just two weeks – the team determined that each coronavirus-infected person can potentially infect nearly seven others with the disease. “Integrating these estimates and high-resolution real-time human travel and infection data with mathematical models, we estimated that the number of infected individuals during early epidemic double every 2.4 days, and the R0 value is likely to be between 4.7 and 6.6,” the paper explains.”

Why This May be the Biblical Armageddon By James Reed

     For a wide-eyed fanatic such as myself, I look daily for the signs of end times, as told in the last book of the Bible. I am not an expert about this, or anything else, but like you, have my opinion, which I hold regardless of evidence. For example, I believe in climate change, but not global warming, but global cooling, namely a new ice age. I am also concerned about the various plagues threatening the earth, including locusts, which is something out of the Bible, I think. Just read the following and tell me there is not a theological meaning behind all of this:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/10-plagues-are-hitting-our-planet-simultaneously

“#1 Armies Of Locusts – As I detailed the other day, swarms of locusts the size of major cities have been devouring entire farms in Africa in as little as 30 seconds.  These swarms have also been spreading throughout the Middle East, and now we have learned that they have even reached China… A gigantic swarm of locusts that belong to a plague that has ravaged millions of acres of crops across east Africa has been spotted reaching the Chinese border. Billions of the insects have destroyed food supplies across Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia in what has been described as the worst plague for decades. #2 Extremely Bizarre Weather Patterns – It is almost as if virtually all of the old rules have suddenly been thrown out the window.  An all-time record 209 mph wind gust just hit Calfiornia, and absolutely crazy storms are happening all over the planet.  For example, just check out what just took place in Australia… Sydney has been thrown into chaos by a devastating storm that saw two months of rainfall in just two days – forcing mass evacuations, leaving 150,000 homes without power, and prompted warnings not to drive to work. The storm dumped 400mm of rain on the city over the weekend, causing mayhem for commuters on Monday morning with roads blocked, ferries cancelled and trains suffering major delays across the network. #3 Unprecedented Flooding – We are seeing unusual flooding all over the world right now, and the flooding that is devastating the southern U.S. at this moment is being called “unprecedented”… In Jackson, Mississippi, hundreds of residents either watched their homes flood over the weekend or worried their residence would soon be drenched as the Pearl River crested Monday at 36.8 feet, its third-highest level ever recorded – behind only 1979 and 1983.

The Bloomberg Apocalypse By Charles Taylor

     Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is racing up the charts of popularity, using his billions to buy the presidency. Some notable things are that there was mention of Hillary Clinton as a running mate, which sunk as fast as it was raised, but, who knows. Given that this would put gun banning on the front agenda, maybe the old girl is just lying, which would not surprise me.

  https://www.zerohedge.com/political/bloomberg-frames-farmers-primitive-idiots-demeaning-diatribe

     There is speculation that Bloomberg could beat Trump, which if true will test the thesis of accelerationism, since Bloomberg will definitely implement gun banning, open borders immigration, and the entire house of horrors, but so will all of the others, so nothing will prevent civil war 2.0, at least in principle.

Vegan Goes Carnivore; Loves it! By Mrs Vera West

     Myself and I think James Reed have ben critiquing veganism here, not because we have anything against a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, but because veganism, is obsessive, and highly political, tying up with climate change, as my articles on climate change and the coming meat bans have documented.
  https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/vegan-influencer-carnivore-healthier

“A formerly vegan influencer revealed to her fans that she spent 30 days eating nothing but meat and animal products. She also revealed that the new diet had some surprisingly positive effects on her health. Alyse Parker, who has over 200K Instagram followers and over 700K Youtube subscribers, explained her decision on Instagram. In a post, she revealed that she decided to try the Carnivore Diet after hearing about all of the health benefits from friends who switched from being vegan to eating only meat and animal products. Parker explained, “I had my own fair share of health struggles and eventually reached a breaking point where I was willing to try anything to function properly again.”

Survival of the Richest? By Brian “The Brain” Simpson

     Is this their plan? The hypothesis to be discussed is that the rich will be able to reproduce and have children, being able to get some freedom and protection from environmental toxins, while the poor, people like us, will be swimming in pollutants, and thus will be effectively sterilised. End of story.
  https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/10/gmos-grantham-warns-only-the-rich-will-be-able-to-have-kids-due-to-chemical-toxicity.html

“Investor Jeremy Grantham warned in a letter that falling birth rates in the developed world could accelerate in coming years due to increasing chemical toxicity, allowing only wealthy people to have children. In recent years, economists have raised concern about the impact on economic growth of slowing birth rates in the developed world. Grantham, who co-founded GMO in the 1970s and is famous for calling the last two major market bubbles, said that trend is poised to accelerate due to increased chemical toxicity in the environment and food products. “This interference is growing at such a rapid rate that if left alone it is likely to leave us sterile in a few decades with only the rich able to easily afford the healthy lifestyles and the exotic medical help required to have babies,” Grantham said. While acknowledging that changes in lifestyle choices is responsible for at least some of the slowing birth rates, Graham said increased chemical toxicity is making it harder for women to conceive and lowering sperm counts in men. “The net effect of choice and postponement combined with the recent decade of ‘help’ from toxicity has been an unexpected and accelerating decline in delivered fertility in developed countries, as well as the critically important China and India, with new annual cohorts of babies already declining in absolute numbers, not just growth rates,” Grantham said. He also pointed to dramatic population declines in some species of insects as an example of how increased chemicals in the environment can hurt reproduction rates. He ended his letter by warning that major chemical companies could soon be hit by widespread bans on some of their key products. “The bottom line is this: either endocrine disrupting chemicals will go out of business or we will!” Grantham wrote.

Monogamy is Healthy! By Mrs Vera West

     We here at Alor.org,, being Christians, primarily support monogamy, and that is marriage between a man and a woman, because of good religious reasons. But that does not mean that there cannot be scientific reasons also given as supplement.  Thus, multiple sexual partners expose people to a greater chance of coming into contact with dangerous organisms, and mechanisms that lead to diseases like cancer.
  https://inews.co.uk/news/health/multiple-sexual-partners-cancer-health-risk-1675815

“Playing the field could be putting people at much greater risk of being diagnosed with cancer, a study reveals. Those most likely to be diagnosed are people with ten or more sexual partners throughout their lifetime. And among women, a higher number of sexual partners is also linked to heightened odds of reporting a limiting long term condition, the findings indicate. Few studies have looked at the potential impact of the number of sexual partners on wider health outcomes, so researchers from Anglia Ruskin University drew on information gathered for the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing, a nationally representative tracking study of adults aged 50 and above living in England. Almost 6,000 people with an average age of 64 were asked to rate their own health and report any long standing conditions. The average age of participants was 64, and almost three out of four were married. Some 28.5 per cent of men said they had had 0-1 sexual partners to date; 29 per cent said they had had 2-4; 20 per cent reported 5-9; while 22 per cent said 10 or more. The equivalent figures for women were: just under 41 per cent; 35.5 per cent; just under 16 per cent; and just under 8 per cent. Those who reported a higher tally of sexual partners were more likely to smoke, drink frequently, and do more vigorous physical activity on a weekly basis. Compared with women who reported 0-1 sexual partners, those who said they had had 10 or more, were 91 per cent more likely to have been diagnosed with cancer. Among the men, those who reported 2-4 lifetime sexual partners were 57 per cent more likely to have been diagnosed with cancer than were those who reported 0-1. And those who reported 10 or more, were 69 per cent more likely to have been diagnosed with the disease. While the number of sexual partners was not associated with reported long standing conditions among the men, it was among the women. The findings chime with those of previous studies, implicating sexually transmitted infections in the development of several types of cancer and hepatitis, suggest the researchers.”

Is a Cell Phone a Cancer Bomb? By Mrs Vera West

     There has been an on-going debate about the possible cancer effects of cell/mobile phone use. However, this article gives a different spin to the debate, that there is apparently a danger message in the actual phone itself, or at least American phones. I have no idea whether this is applicable to phones that one can get in Australia, but for what it is worth:
  https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/02/18/hazards-in-your-cellphone.aspx?cid_source=dnl&cid_medium=email&cid_content=art3ReadMore&cid=20200218Z1&et_cid=DM460376&et_rid=813006445

“In 2017, Wendy Mesley with Canada's CBC News conducted an investigation into a little-known fact about cellphones. Inside the manual is a warning, one that could drastically change the use of cellphones as you know it — if only it were taken seriously. In short, the warning states to keep the phone a certain distance away from your body — usually 5 to 15 millimeters (mm), or two-tenths to six-tenths of an inch — to limit exposure to radiofrequency (RF) exposure to under the federal safety limit. In the video Mesley asks random cellphone users to try to find the warning hidden in their phone, and none are successful. She pulls it up on her iPhone, reading: "To reduce exposure to RF energy, use a hands-free option, such as speakerphone … Carry iPhone at least 5 millimeters away from your body to ensure exposure levels remain at or below the as tested levels." If you carry your phone in your pocket or your bra, or hold it against your ear when you talk, you're violating this warning with unknown health consequences.

Veganism as Ecologically Unsustainable By Mrs Vera West

     We at this site are pro-farmer, and certainly pro-meat, both on economic and health grounds. In recent times a political dimension has been added, with many radical environmentalists championing veganism and anti-meat, as part of their political agenda. But, farmers are beginning the great fight back:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/02/12/veganism-bad-for-the-environment-and-your-health-say-farmers/

“A scientist speaking at the National Farmers Union conference has argued that living a vegan lifestyle is more damaging to the environment than eating meat. The Rothamsted Institute’s Graham McAuliffe said that the manner in which tofu — a protein foodstuff made from soy ‘milk’ — is produced has a worse carbon footprint than chicken, pork, or lamb produced for eating, according to an unpublished report. Dr McAuliffe, who models the environmental impact of foods, said that current accepted research which claims that eating meat is worse for the environment fails to take into account that the human body does not absorb as much protein from plants as it does from meat, meaning that on a vegan diet, a person would have to eat more in order to obtain a healthy amount of protein, according to a report in The Times. Speaking at the conference in London, the scientist said: “Without a doubt peas and ground nuts always have a lower environmental impact than any livestock products. “But if you look at tofu, which is processed so there is more energy going into its production, when you correct for the fact that the protein in it is not as digestible compared to the meat-based products, you can see that it could actually have a higher global warming potential than any of the monogastric animals. “To get the same amount of protein, tofu is worse.”

Corona Virus Soars By Brian Simpson

     The coronavirus continues to spread across the world with the first American dying, and five Britons have been diagnosed. However, the main event naturally continues to be China, where the death toll, or at least the official lie, is now standing at 805, surpassing the 2003 SARS outbreak. Crematoriums are working around the clock burning bodies, indicating that things are much worse than the communist government is letting on.

  https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2020/02/07/report-china-crematorium-funeral-homes-burning-coronavirus-patients/

“A shocking report published Saturday local time by the Epoch Times revealed that crematoriums in China are struggling to keep up with the hundreds of bodies they are receiving, suggesting Beijing is undercounting the number of coronavirus deaths in the country. The Epoch Times, a Chinese-American anti-communist newspaper, sent journalists to speak with the heads of several funeral homes and crematoriums in Hubei province – whose capital, Wuhan, is the epicenter of the current novel coronavirus outbreak. The newspaper found that adding up the total number of people cremated per day in several funeral homes yielded a significantly larger number than the official number of deaths tallied since the outbreak began in December. The Chinese Communist Party alerted the world to the discovery of a new type of coronavirus on January 20, over a month after locals became aware of a disease spreading and 20 days after local officials shut down a wild meat market in Wuhan where the virus is believed to have originated. According to the Epoch Times, the crematoria were handling “4-5 times the usual cremation volume” per day.

Another Day in Coronavirus Land and Still No Non-Chinese Deaths By Brian Simpson

     The coronavirus death toll has now hit 902 cases, surpassing SARs (813) in only three weeks. The number of confirmed cases in China is 40,171, and offshore, 382. According to the WHO Director-General, this may be only the tip of the iceberg. Indeed, one exiled Chinese billionaire, Guo Wengui, based on leaked information from Wuhan, and we know they these guys know everything, for how else could they be so rich (?), thinks that the death troll is about 50 thousand, with 1.5 million infected.

Zombies “R” Us By James Reed

     A bit of a slow news period, but, we still have to churn out material. I recall Aussie comedy legend, Graham Kennedy who did a news show in the 1980s or was it the 1990s (?), facing a slow news day and saying: well, do they expect us to go out and make news! Anyway, at the ever-interesting Unz Review, I find buried under layers of other interesting material, a little article dealing with zombies, which puts the point that this may be a better metaphor for the inert masses than sheeple. After all, sheep have a bit of life in them:
  https://www.unz.com/rbonomo/were-all-zombies/

““I have always liked the ‘monster within’ idea. I like to think of zombies as being us. Zombies are the blue-collar monsters.” – George Romero
Another essential quality of the zombie is its unquenchable hunger. No amount of flesh and blood seems able to quench the longing to consume live human flesh. Modern man has a similar problem- no amount of money, sex, gadgets, job titles, drugs, entertainment, pornography, art, religion or gurus seem able to quench our thirst. We live in constant hunger. If we equate the zombie ‘hunger’ for flesh to the human desire for money, the comparison becomes almost uncanny. Most adult humans spend most of their day either making money or spending it while being constantly bombarded with propaganda/advertising to keep them hungry. From the most humble street vendor to the billionaires on CNBC, no one seems to ever have enough money. Zombies need to eat live human flesh and money is at its core, human labor. Our craving for money is really the craving for the work of others, for the sweat and blood of millions to furnish us with unlimited amounts of food and consumer goods. The vast majority of Westerners have ceased to create anything tangible. Only one in five Americans actually produce anything. Eating what one produces on a farm or trading manufactured goods for food connects us to life. But when people spend ten hours a day in an office looking at a computer screen and two hours in traffic, somehow eating, and living, become abstract. What are we actually doing to create the food, heat, and the shelter we need? Our hunger for food and things far outstrips our practical needs and has become the cause of our ever more obese, angry, unsatisfied society while our spiritual hunger leaves us addicted, chasing empty consumer thrills. There is no end to what can be consumed and there is never enough for even those with billions; we always need more.”

Surveillance Capitalism: An Assault on Human Autonomy By Brian Simpson

     I have been saying this for years in my critique of technology, but it is good to hear a different voice for today:
  https://www.technocracy.news/professor-surveillance-capitalism-is-an-assault-on-human-autonomy/
  https://www.theguardian.com/books/2019/oct/04/shoshana-zuboff-surveillance-capitalism-assault-human-automomy-digital-privacy

“It’s a beautiful day on Hampstead Heath, the last weekend of summer – parliament is still prorogued. In a festival tent at the HowtheLightGetsIn festival, Professor Shoshana Zuboff is talking about her recent book, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power. Zuboff stands on a low stage, making eye-contact with her audience. She spies someone who seems unconvinced, invites them to raise their concerns. “When this book was published in January, I left home for three weeks on the road,” she says. “I’m still going.” The audience laughs. Because The Age of Surveillance Capitalism – a 700-plus page sociological analysis of the digital era – has become an epoch-defining international bestseller, drawing comparisons to revolutionary works such as Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. Naomi Klein has urged everyone to read it “as an act of digital self-defence”. It describes how global tech companies such as Google and Facebook persuaded us to give up our privacy for the sake of convenience; how personal information (“data”) gathered by these companies has been used by others not only to predict our behaviour but also to influence and modify it; and how this has had disastrous consequences for democracy and freedom. This is the “surveillance capitalism” of the title, which Zuboff defines as a “new economic order” and “an expropriation of critical human rights that is best understood as a coup from above”.

The Real Racists are the Mainstream Media By Peter Ewer

     It is interesting that the mainstream media, priding itself on so-called anti-racism have not hesitated to vilify the Chinese over the coronavirus epidemic. This article at the great Unz Review lays into them:
  https://www.unz.com/article/how-to-yellow-cake-a-tragedy/

“Instead of voicing support or encouraging solidarity–“We are Wuhan”—western corporate media have chosen to go all out to criticize and demonize China, sparing no effort to recycle and rekindle ugly, racist, orientalist, and dehumanizing tropes, using any perceived misstep, pretext, and shortcoming to tar China and the Chinese. One virulent narrative is that this is deliberate Chinese bioweapon to reduce population. Another narrative, no less toxic and virulent, alleges that the Chinese leadership, out of a “fear of political embarrassment”, suppressed free speech and silenced the flow of information “at critical moments”, “allowing the virus to gain a tenacious hold”, thus creating the conditions for a lethal epidemic that has led to the deaths of hundreds and the infection of thousands. The NY Times takes the [yellow] cake for sowing this toxic, racist disinformation, alleging in numerous articles and opinion pieces of a “cover up”: that “China’s old habits put secrecy and order ahead of openly confronting the crisis”; that “they played down dangers to the public, leaving the city’s 11 million residents unaware that they should protect themselves”, and presenting this as proof dispositive that the Chinese system is fatally flawed. All this while reveling in and boosting on its website, unseemly schadenfreude that suppression of information and free speech has led to condign and expected catastrophe.

Coronavirus as a Bioweapon By Brian Simpson

     I am updating here the coronavirus pandemic today’s news. The view that this is a dud disease is refuted by rising death tolls in China, with the commo authorities hiding the real number of dead:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/president-xi-warns-ncov-outbreak-threatens-stability-top-who-official-disputes
  https://saraacarter.com/gordon-chang-chinese-authorities-are-falsifying-the-death-toll-from-coronavirus/?utm_source=izooto&utm_medium=push_notifications&utm_campaign=gordon&utm_content=&utm_term=

“Local Chinese authorities have just lost the ability to pick up corpses due to a breakdown in government,” said Gordon Chang, a well-known expert on China on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “So really what we are having right now is, they are completely overwhelmed,” Chang added. “They are not able to keep accurate statistics. So what we are witnessing is essentially a breakdown in government and keeping accurate statistics is a very minor part of their priorities right now.” Chang said that while he understands the preventative measure, he believes the quarantine has “made the problem worse.” “I can understand why they want to quarantine but remember, the Wuhan mayor said about 5 million people from his city left before the quarantine was imposed,” he said. “Also right now the quarantine has aggravated a problem and that is [that] people can’t get to hospitals, so they are at home…they are dying.” “They are infecting other people in their households because they are not, in a sense, quarantined from wives, husbands, brothers, sisters,” he continued. “The quarantine has made the problem worse. It’s also created panic. That panic has had consequences on, for instance, social cohesion which is absolutely necessary if you want to beat an epidemic.”

Why is Israel Ceasing Fluoridation of its Water? By Mrs Vera West

     Israel is one nation that has it together, and when it makes some radical change, it would be wise to analyse it. Take fluoride in the water for example:

“Israeli tap water will no longer contain fluoride after Tuesday, following a decree by Health Minister Yael German earlier this month discontinuing the practice. The decision has been lauded by various rights groups, but criticized by many in the medical and dental communities as a serious mistake. Fluoride is commonly added to national water supplies by governments throughout the world in order to prevent tooth decay, but critics say overconsumption of the invisible, odorless, tasteless gas is a health hazard. Despite the widespread fluoridation, German, a member of the Yesh Atid party, has made no secret about her disdain for the practice. During her tenure as mayor of Herzliya, she successfully stopped the national government from fluoridating the city’s water supply. Shortly after she was appointed health minister in 2013, she announced her plans to end public fluoridation once and for all. However, following a wave of backlash from public health experts and government officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, she mandated that fluoridation would only continue for population centers that opted for the program. The program, which had been opted into by local authorities of 5.3 million residents, has no longer become optional, as German officially announced her decision to discontinue fluoridation on August 26.”

What is Auto-Racism? By James Reed

     The received view is that only whites are racist because of the culture of guilt as a weapon, blah, blah, Great Replacement etc. Ok, but there is a problem. What if there is discrimination within a racial group against its own members?

“A Chinese woman says a Sydney restaurant is discriminating against their own culture. Olivia Lu, a Glace Bay resident from China attending Cape Breton University, says Chinese students are being barred from entering the Fortune Star Chinese Restaurant in Sydney. “It’s discrimination, it’s ridiculous, it’s so rude,” said Lu. Lu said a couple days ago a group of her friends went to the restaurant, sat down and were asked to leave. “They told them they don’t accept Chinese students anymore,” she said. “They said they could call and place an order and call delivery man to pick it up.” Lu said a sign was posted on the door in Chinese which translated read: “Due to the recent outbreak of pneumonia in Wuhan for the safety of everyone, our store does not accept Chinese students for the time being. If necessary, you can call for deliver. Sorry for the inconvenience, please forgive me.” After students began sharing photos of the sign on social media, there was an uproar from angry students. “Then the next day they put up a new sign saying they were closing the restaurant for a month,” Lu said. Although she hears the restaurant makes really good food, Lui said she will never go there again. “The thing is, they are all Chinese, even the staff that work there are Chinese,” she said, adding that this should never happen anywhere, but the restaurant is even doing it to their own people. Although some students did go home over the holiday break, the virus didn’t start until after that and the flights are shut down anyway, she said. Many Chinese students on Facebook sites were expressing anger over the restaurant’s decision, most feeling it was discrimination. There are also some posts defending the restaurant, saying obviously the owner is taking precautions.”
