Ted Cruz Calls Texas Resolution Dubbing 'Chinese Virus' As Hate Speech 'Nuts'
San Antonio, Texas passed a resolution calling terms such as “Chinese virus” and “kung-fu virus” hate speech. According to Business Insider, the resolution also covers anti-Semitic speech and encourages people to report it to authorities. Sen. Ted Cruz called the resolution “nuts,” saying the city council was “behaving like a lefty college faculty lounge.” Yet he also suggested they investigate The New York Times and CNN who said “Chinese coronavirus” in their reporting. Mayor Ron Nirenberg said hate speech rose during the pandemic, saying sometimes they see “the worst” of humanity” during times of crises.”
