Mayor of Florence Encouraged Italians to “Hug a Chinese” Before Coronavirus Pandemic Hit

Virtue-signaling stunt intended to prove Italians weren’t racist.

Published

The Mayor of Florence is facing fresh criticism after he encouraged Italians to “Hug a Chinese” as a stand against racism before Italy was later forced to quarantine its entire country because of the coronavirus.

The story is yet another illustration of how political correctness can actually sometimes be dangerous if not fatal.

Italy is now under a complete lockdown after the country was ravaged by coronavirus. Current figures show over 12,000 recorded infections with 827 deaths.

Many observers have criticized Italy’s left-wing government for not taking tougher measures earlier, but their reaction was significantly less embarrassing than how Mayor of Florence Dario Nardella responded to the outbreak.

Back in February, as the first cases of coronavirus were being recorded in Italy, Nardella launched an anti-racism hashtag campaign which translates as “hug a Chinese.”

“Half-empty Chinese restaurants, suspicious looks when you meet a Chinese on the street – maybe born and raised in Italy – psychosis when the bus neighbor sneezes, this is the effect of Coronavirus on the Italian population,” reported Newsly.it.

A video shows a Chinese man wearing a blindfold and a face mask in Florence asking for hugs. Numerous people embrace the man while some physically remove his blindfold and mask.

The Mayor even released a Twitter video of himself hugging an awkward-looking Chinese person to promote the campaign, which was launched to “stem the hatred” and “express solidarity with the Chinese community.”

Suffice to say Nardella is a member of the left-wing Democratic Party in Italy.

One wonders if he sees the empty streets in Florence and ponders whether his absurd campaign contributed to the current state of Italy.

Mask mandates are to end in England.

Those whose entire personality is predicated on harassing people in supermarkets for not wearing masks will now have to find a different excuse to inflict their insufferable obnoxiousness on others.

Lord Frost: COVID Restrictions Aren’t Gone Until Masks Are Gone

“The evidence for masks is weak.”

Lord Frost, who resigned form the government over his opposition to COVID restrictions, asserts that ‘Plan B’ measures in the UK can’t be considered “lifted” until rules on face masks are totally eliminated.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is expected to announce later today that most Plan B restrictions will end next week.

The measures are being lifted after claims from government advisors that Omicron could lead to 6,000 deaths a death without further lockdown restrictions were proven wildly inaccurate.

However, some reports say that while Johnson will do away with COVID passports and work from home advice, he is planning to keep mask mandates in place.

Lord Frost blasted the plans in a tweet earlier today.

“It is good news if the Cabinet does decide this morning to lift some “Plan B” restrictions,” he wrote.

“But the job isn’t done if mask wearing remains in place. The evidence for masks is weak & the many downsides are persistently discounted.”

“All Plan B measures need lifting *for good*.”

All the measures are supposed to legally sunset on January 26, so whether Johnson will be forced to pass a new vote in parliament to keep mask mandates remains to be seen.

The last time the PM had to get approval for restrictions, he faced a humiliating rebellion from scores of Tory MPs, and can expect a similar fate in even greater numbers if he tries to keep mask rules.

The UK government’s own investigation found that the evidence for the efficacy of face masks stopping the spread of COVID-19 in schools is “not conclusive.”

According to University of Oxford Professor Jim Naismith, when England dropped face mask mandates back in July and Scotland maintained them, it made “no meaningful difference” to infection rates.

We previously highlighted the comments of UK government SAGE adviser Dr Colin Axon, who dismissed masks as “comfort blankets” that do virtually nothing, noting that the COVID-19 virus particle is up to 5,000 times smaller than the holes in the mask.

“The small sizes are not easily understood but an imperfect analogy would be to imagine marbles fired at builders’ scaffolding, some might hit a pole and rebound, but obviously most will fly through,” Axon said.

As we highlight in the video below, other Conservative MPs are warning Johnson that he would be “mad” to keep mask mandates in place.

Australian Authorities Say Draconian Vaccine Passports Could Last For “Years”

Australia has fallen.

Authorities in Western Australia say their draconian new vaccine passport scheme, which bars the unvaccinated from most public places, is likely to be in place for “years.”

Premier Mark McGowan announced the new measures, which will go into effect from the end of the month, as “the broadest proof of vaccination requirements in the nation.”

The vaccine passport mandate will now cover “a wider range of venues.”

“From Monday, January 31, 2022, the vaccine passport mandates will cover cafes, restaurants, dine-in fast food joints, pubs, bars, taverns, clubs, nightclubs, and “all hospitality venues,” as well as private and public hospitals and aged-care facilities,” writes Ken Macon.

Entertainment venues such as “play centers, gaming and gambling, theaters, concert halls, museums, cinemas, and live music venues,” will also be off limits for the unjabbbed.

“Life will become very difficult for the unvaccinated…no pubs, no bottle-shops, no gym, no yoga classes, no gigs, no dance floors, no hospital or aged care visits,” said McGowan, adding that the unvaccinated must be “protected from themselves.”

He added that the rules, which will soon only count people who have had three doses as “fully vaccinated,” will ensure the public is “confident in these public settings, and that they are only mixing with other vaccinated people.”

The restrictions “will not be removed anytime soon” and could be in place “for years.”

Australia has become notorious for becoming the developed world leader in inflicting the most draconian COVID control measures on its population.

As we highlighted last month, Australia’s chief pharmacist Trent Twomey says the public “just need to accept” they will have to take regular vaccine booster shots every six months and continue wearing masks for “many years” to come.

Australia is also building COVID quarantine camps for “ongoing operations,” with one facility at Wellcamp Airport outside Toowoomba not even set to be completed until March.

Citing new strains of COVID and people “who have not had access to vaccination,” Queensland Deputy Premier Steven Miles told the media outlet, “We anticipate there to be a continuing need for quarantine facilities.”
