The New York Times says that Trump-inspired ‘Spasm of Hate’ that leaves Asian-Americans ‘terrified.’
The NYT made a lot of claims about growing violence and racism toward Asian Americans, but they provided no statistical data to support those claims. Nor did they provide any examples of Asians getting assaulted.
More fake news.

The New York Times invariably provides guilty liberal spin to any crisis, including the coronavirus pandemic.

We have seen articles complete with pictures of signage in China that accuse Americans for the epidemic. If we don’t fight that propaganda, Americans traveling to China in the future could be subject to retaliation by Chinese citizens who may believe that Americans were responsible for the deaths of friends and family.
