Here’s some evidence of this escalating to violence:
“A 16-year-old boy in California's San Fernando Valley was physically attacked this week by bullies in his high school who accused him of having the coronavirus — simply because he is Asian American...” Excerpted from CBS News (February 14, 2020).
A woman wearing a face mask was punched and kicked by a man who called her "diseased.”Excerpted from NBC News (February 5, 2020).
A woman was confronted on the subway by somebody yelling, "Where is your corona mask you Asian b—h," before punching the woman dislocating her jaw. Excerpted from the New York Post (March 10, 2020).

> ### Ignorance? The Chinese virus was brought to the US by travelers, many of them travelers from China. In the absence of testing it's a reasonable presumption that your risk of getting infected by a Chinese virus is higher in Chinatown, at least initially. Does avoiding Chinatown make you into an "ignorant asshole"?

> Anti-American, leftist mass media (I am repeating myself here) promote the narrative of Americans being just bad, hateful people. When the facts on the ground do not fit the story, when the supply of real hate crimes does not meet the demand, there are many Jussie Smollets willing to create fake ones. That's why I am highly suspicious of those ritual condemnation stories about the ugly mainstream Americans, ignorant assholes, stupid, filthy and rural.
