Whenever they get themselves into trouble they start trying to redefine words. Reminds me of everyone making a huge distinction between “gender” and “biological sex” in the past few years. Growing up, everyone used the words interchangeably. It was only when leftists painted themselves into an ideological corner that I was told they are two VERY different words with different meanings.

May be important to note - the Wikipedia entry for Spanish Flu doesn't seem to display this anymore. Not for me at least.

And I'm not surprised. Many Wikipedia articles are sort of owned, or adopted by a person, or a few people. And a lot of those people take their Wikipedia moderating very, very seriously. So it depends on who has adopted a Wikipedia entry, whether or not they will get into SJW demands.

A lot of the Wikipedia volunteers who adopt a Wikipedia entry, are nerds who are proud to be Wikipedia nerds. Nothing wrong with that. So what happens is if somebody randomly tries to edit something, they get a notification, and they set it right back to the way it was. And these people are with a dog with a bone. They won't give up. and if they are working with a few other folks, they join in. If you have four or five people who have adopted an entry come in somebody keeps trying to edit it, they just keep editing it right back.

But isn't it interesting how, according to them, gender is fluid (your gender can change every day) but sex is fixed (unless it's changed with surgery). But sexuality is fluid (everybody's a little gay, right?) unless you were born gay, then it is fixed and every attempt to turn you straight is inhumane as fuck.

So many twists and turns in that logic, no wonder people are too afraid to challenge it. You'll be wrong no matter what and they'll be right. As designed.

Why do they always try to fucking rewrite history.

Because that's what authoritarians do.

Check the edit history, they halved its death rate at one point, too. I wonder why...

Zero Hedge wrote an article about it.

Ever notice how some things only become "racist" after Trump does them, too?

Every year is Year Zero to the left. They have nothing to offer for the future, so they must rewrite the past to make it look like a worse dystopia than the one they want to create.

Just rename it CHINA -1918 Flu and this one CHINA-2019 Flu.

2
Thehoytime 2 points ago

Exactly. Spanish flu is racist. Should have been CHINA -1918 since that is where it originated.

4
Marshall 4 points ago

Perhaps it should be known as CHINA-1917 since they found a pneumonia outbreak in 1917 was H1N1 too. Then through CANADA with Chinese Laborers in 1918 and on to Europe.

Read 1984, it's always relevant:

and zika, ebola, yellow fever, west nile, mers, noro, lassa, and a bunch more.

As a microbiologist, I actually kind of support the argument to rename all these so reflect their classification. It is kind of what they are doing with protein nomenclature because in the early days people just named them whatever and now humans have a "Sonic Hedge Hog" protein Shh. But doing this to try to pretend this isn't a zoonotic jump because China wont stop eating bats is just dumb.

Changing the name of an event always makes it harder to research. Somebody doesn't want us to find that information quickly.

Straight out of 1984 - manipulation of language as a form of control.

Wikipedia is the Ministry of Truth from 1984. Whenever history goes against their Marxist bullshit, they just rewrite it.

Doctor Ogilvy was an African-American homosexual female doctor who invented the serum that cured The 1918 Influenza and saved billions of lives.

This is fine. I don’t call it the China Flu; I call it the Chinese Communist Party Wuhan Flu Epidemic.

It's even called Spanish IN Spanish:

La pandemia de gripe de 1918, también conocida como la gripe española.

Rubella is also known as German Measles. I vote we rename them Merkel Measles.

djaeveloplyse 2 points ago

Should be changed to the "1918 Chinese Flu," as that's where it actually came from.

This is the true danger of the digital age.

Much more work to burn every copy of a book.

This Orwellian nightmare can have only one end.

FWIW, looking in the Talk section for the article all the attempts seem to have been shut down.

They need to take out the 1918 too. It is racist against the year 1918 in exactly the same way as Spanish is racist against the geographical location of Spain.

Well this is the PandaPandemic soooo

1
Give_Piece_a_Chance 1 point ago

It is however true that the 1918 pandemic did not originate in Spain. When the flu first began to spread in 1918, the first news reporting on the pandemic came from Spain...because Spain was neutral during WW1 and thus not under the same censorship rules as most other countries in Europe. Hence, the "Spanish flu." The most likely theory for the flu's origin is large Allied troop encampments in France, although there are numerous other theories and none have been conclusively proven.

Using years denominated by the birth of Jesus Christ is racist against Islam.

TrudeauIsAsshoe 1 point ago

Every Wikipedia article actually has a Talk page where discussion regarding changes being made can be discussed. It can be accessed from a tab near the top while on desktop mode. Here is the one for the Spanish flu:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Spanish_flu

Thankfully, you can see that the people who tend to the page actually have brains.

Don’t tell them about the “Hong Kong Flu” of 1968

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hong_Kong_flu

Or the 1957 “Asian Flu”

When google changed the definition of fascism in 2016, I really lost all faith. I mean things ebb and flow, but when you change history, when you change the definition of words to the extent you make Hitler sound like he was the result of right wing conservatism and there's no public outrage... I don't know how you recover.

So Covid-19 should be called the Chinese Flu.
