COVID exposes the US romance with super heroes : Comments

By Hsin-Yi Lo, published 20/5/2020

Yet when an actual crisis hits home, it has shown a less than heroic side of the nation and its people.

'Your hero's score: 92,000. Hopefully most of them went off to heaven, perhaps prematurely.'

Hi Joe

and a baby in the womb is not premature? When did you become pro life? Or is it since Cuomo sent Covid infected patients into old people's home?

I don't think it was a personal attack, a personal attack is when you deliberately insult someone without providing evidence when examination. In this case, the typo on the author's name (twice) is very evident.

And regarding your views, Trump has clearly mishandled the crisis. Unlike other world leaders who have enforced lockdowns and quarantines and economic support packages to citizens, Trump hasn't done anything to support everyday Americans but blames others for his mistakes and incompetency. Trump has successfully scared Americans into thinking that someone is out there to "get them". A very typical American government policy.

As the wealthiest nation on the planet, it's mind-boggling to fathom that it has become the epicentre of the pandemic. The US government happily sent a bail package to rescue the banks who caused the 2007/8 global financial crisis. But they haven't readily given financial support to ordinary Americans

It seems strange that a Taiwanese female journalist would stoop to sneering at President Trump over his handling of the Wuhan virus. Especially since it is probably only the existence of Trump and the unmatched US Armed forces that prevent the formerly communist (but now firmly fascist) mainland Chinese from invading the Taiwan. However, if all Taiwanese think like Hsi Yo-Lo, then as far as I am concerned, the Chinese can have them all.

But I suppose Taiwan has left leaning journalists also who hanker for a left wing totalitarian society to keep the proles under control, just like in the west. But somewhere they have forgotten, that China is no longer a left wing dictatorship, it is a right wing dictatorship. With over 100 Chine billionaires members of the Chinese "Communist" Party, anyone who thinks that the CCP is the party of the working class, has rocks for brains.

The rest of Hsi-Yo-Lo's rant looks like a racist attack on white people. She may be referring to "Americans", but that is simply a cover for "you white barbarians." It's funny how the only people in this world who must be ashamed of their skin colour and culture are white people, other races revel with pride over their own race and culture.

There is only one villian here YoLo, and that is the "Communist" Party of China who I think were developing a biological weapon in their Wuhan lab and the idiots let it escape. Much, much, worse than that crime and incompetence, the rotten bastards "disappeared" anybody who knew the truth, closed their own domestic airline terminals and either through criminal negligence or top level planning, allowed overseas flights to continue, thereby guaranteeing a plague on humankind.

The charge that Trump was incompetent is fake news. Every politician in the world, regardless of whether they were right wing or left wing, swallowed the "Communist" Chinese line that the virus was relatively harmless and that human to human transmission was difficult. The only fault you could level at Trump was to trust the Chinese on their initial propaganda campaign.
