March 23, 2021 (NewsBusters) — NBC political director Chuck Todd ended Sunday’s Meet the Press with the demand that people, particularly “elected officials” not criticize or bash the genocidal country of China as their “rivalry” with the United States “heats up.” Of course, this came as the network smeared a Georgia Sheriff with false claims of racism after the shootings at Asian spas in the Atlanta area by an apparent sex addict.

As the show was coming to a close, Todd led his panel in one final discussion about the spike in hate crimes directed at Asian-Americans around the country during the coronavirus pandemic, with his demands against the warranted criticism of China as the capstone:

Well look, unfortunately, I'm out of time there. And all these elected officials, when they talk about China, the country as a rival and an adversary to this country, be careful of your words. That matters, too. I know there's a lot of fear that as the rivalry heats up with China, that these hateful incidents will also increase here.

The attacks on Asian-Americans were terrible and tragic, but to demand that people not criticize or speak harshly about a country actively committing genocide against the Uighurs was ridiculous. Calling out the atrocities in China was not synonymous with stoking hate here at home.

As NewsBusters previously reported, NBC was taking part in a misinformation campaign by suggesting it was racist to simply acknowledge the fact that the pandemic started in China. When smearing Georgia Sheriff Captain Jay Baker over a social media post on Thursday, correspondent Blayne Alexander falsely suggested he was being “racist” and “anti-Asian” by sharing an image of a novelty shirt saying the virus came from China.

Just before Todd made his comments, Nevada Independent editor Jon Ralston blamed former President Trump for the violence because he would accurately say the pandemic started in Wuhan, China:

You know, Eddie [Glaude] said there's a through-line in this program. I think it is that words matter, Chuck. And while this existed long before Donald Trump, the fact that he had an utter lack of empathy during COVID, and that he was so desperate to escape political responsibility, that he continually used phrases like “the China virus” that clearly has exacerbated these problems based on the stats that you just put up there, Chuck.

But as it’s been reported, these attacks were occurring in liberal cities, and many of the attackers were members of other minority groups. In fact, Todd even admitted attacks were happening on the “west coast” where “the Asian-American populations are larger, more integrated, and yet we've been seeing these hate crimes out there, too.”

The so-called 'Equality Act' contains deadly poison for Christian democracy in the United States. And, its harmless-sounding name tries to hide this insidious reality.

But, unfortunately, Pelosi and company have JUST PASSED this morally repugnant bill in the US House of Representatives.

Pro-life and pro-family organizations, as well as Christian churches and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and freedom-loving groups everywhere, are now sounding the alarm.

Wake up, America, this is RED ALERT time!

This petition, therefore, calls on every US Senator to vigorously oppose and reject this bill.

Yes, it's THAT important.

The bill has nothing to do with "equality," or with extending the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which is how it is being touted by the leftists in the mainstream media.

It is, rather, one of the MOST EXTREME anti-life, pro-LGBT indoctrination bills ever proposed.

It has been described as a short-list of the worst possible elements of the Radical Left's agenda in Congress...and, REMEMBER, it has just passed the House!

We need to tell all US Senators, in no uncertain terms, that WE WILL NOT ACCEPT this outrageous attack on our freedoms and on life, itself!

SIGN AND SHARE THIS URGENT PETITION, TODAY!

And, after you have signed this petition, please CLICK HERE to DIRECTLY CONTACT YOUR U.S. SENATORS, and tell them to oppose this assault on our freedoms of thought, speech, conscience and religion.

Thank you!

FOR MORE INFORMATION:

Below are some of the devastating critiques of 'Equality Act,' leveled by some of the best conservative, Christian minds in the country.

ON LIFE:

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council (FRC), has written that the 'Equality Act' will include, "the largest expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion this country has ever seen.” 

"Under this big new umbrella of 'discrimination,'" continued Perkins, "any American who doesn’t want to fund, offer, perform, or participate in abortion on demand will have no real choice. They can conform — or they can be punished."

"Every wall that’s been built between abortion and the government would come crashing down, including the Hyde Amendment, the pro-conscience Weldon Amendment, and several international barriers that keep our country from exporting abortion."

ON CHRISTIANITY, RELIGIOUS FREEDOM and LGBT INDOCTRINATION:

Lloyd Marcus, of the American Thinker publication, has written about the 'Equality Act' in the following terms:

"LGBTQ enforcer and homosexual Democrat congressman David Cicilline is sponsor of the Equality Act. Cicilline's evil bill is the most aggressive assault on our constitutional religious liberties in U.S. history...If the Equality Act becomes the law of the land, every outrageous, tyrannical demand [of LGBTQ activists/enforcers] will become reality."

And, Liberty Counsel Action, a law and policy education, training and advocacy organization which, among other things, advances religious freedom, the sanctity of human life, and the family has extensively criticized the 'Equality Act'.

On their webpage, dedicated to analyzing the 'Equality Act', which you can access below, Liberty Counsel Action state: "The 'Equality' Act' elevates 'sexual orientation and gender identity' to the same protected category as race. It will violate the religious freedom of Americans in numerous ways."

The go on to list the areas of life which this will affect: "It will impact all employers, including religious and non-profit organizations; contractors; houses of worship; public, private, and religious schools; curriculum; bathrooms; sports; daycare providers; shelters; hospitals; places of gatherings; entertainment providers; counselors; foster care and adoption; biological parents; landlords; anywhere providing a “good, service, or program,” including those advertised online; transportation drivers; and all local, state, and federal entities and many other areas."

And, as they note: "[T]here is NO RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION to this bill!"

Taking into account all of these potential threats to Christian democracy, Life and religious freedom, it is easy to see how the so-called 'Equality Act' has been called a "poison pill."

It is imperative that the US Senate vigorously reject this bill, AND EXPOSE IT FOR WHAT IT REALLY IS.

Please SIGN this urgent petition, TODAY!

Again, the facts were damned by Princeton University professor and race-baiter, Eddie Glaude. According to him, the attacks were a symptom of the “panic around the whiteness of this country.” “We have to understand this within that frame,” he told Todd.

Chuck Todd’s ridiculous demands not to criticize a country actively committing genocide were made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Chevron and Comcast. Their contact information is linked so you can tell them about the biased news they fund.
