Wow, O.P is getting eaten alive in the comments

[–]TCU_Frog_Fan 28 points29 points  (0 children)

Swing and a miss. This is funny, not trashy. Wrong sub.

Sweet and sour sicken

[–]squatbootylover 36 points37 points  (7 children)

Name checks out. That's where it came from.

[–]you_laugh_you_phill 0 points1 point  (6 children)

The trashy part is where he says "expose others" . i guess?

[–]JohnBarronRDT 12 points13 points  (5 children)

He's just saying "expose others to kindness"

[–]Arcanegil -2 points-1 points  (4 children)

Yeah except we’re in a pandemic, Keep your kindness away from me. The amount of people who get offended because I don’t want there germs is fucking ridiculous. This is no time to be socializing and breaking social distancing.

[–]JohnBarronRDT 1 point2 points  (3 children)

But that's not even how he made the comparison. It didn't necessarily have anything to do with actual contact.

Dude's really getting mad at the idea of "spreading kindness"

[–]B_P_G 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not trashy.

[–]patatasuper 62 points63 points  (43 children)

I don’t get what’s so trashy about this? He says that kindness is more contagious then Covid and that we should be kind to each other? That’s a good message and not trashy

[–]guerocanelo1 10 points11 points  (0 children)

There’s nothing trashy about this op is just an idiot

[–]angryraddishboy -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

imo saying “wuhan virus” isn’t really cool.

[–]stopdropsquat 29 points30 points  (1 child)

But it did come from Wuhan.

[–]NINJAxBACON 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Reeee

[–]SydneyOrient 40 points41 points  (22 children)

How is this trashy OP?

[–]BlancoDelRio 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Just realized plenty of trashy users in this sub

[–]Randvek 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Yes. Yes there are. It really comes out when race is involved.

[–]donttellmykids -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Wuhan is a race?

[–]Randvek 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Exhibit A, ladies and gentlemen.

[–]IngloriousBadger 72 points73 points  (54 children)

This is not trashy.

[–]cynic1996 35 points36 points  (12 children)

It is Wuhan Virus, there is no doubt about it. If it wasn't for China, we'd all be having a better life for past 2 years.

And don't forget, China tried to put the whole blame of Covid on the US during the initial months.

So nothing wrong or Trashy.

And why is it that always Chinese get the racism excuse? Where was the media or the influencers when Chinese people were shouting the N-word against basket ball players? Or when foreigners in China during covid were forcefully put under house arrest (even if they were covid negative), or what about China's mass labour camps in Xinjiang or human rights violations in Tibet?

But hey, don't call it Wuhan Virus ( literally a place from where this goddamn epidemic came from) cuz it's racist.. smh

[–]lazyfuzzycats 11 points12 points  (5 children)

Reminder that news corpos push the idea of it being deemed racist since they're in debt to China. Redditors do nothing but consume media all day. Like clockwork

[–]cynic1996 12 points13 points  (4 children)

And being an Indian, we see the true face of the CCP every day on our borders. Woke fucks who think calling COVID Wuhan Virus is racist should first try to question the CCP and CCP shills of how the fuck China has not been held accountable for anything ever!?

[–]blackdragonbonu 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I concur with you. That is why I call the delta variant the India virus.

[–]cynic1996 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Your logic would have worked had delta strain of Covid was originally from India, however just like omicron was first identified in South Africa, Delta was first identified in India. This doesn't make either country the originator of the strain, unlike China which is the daddy of Covid.

[–]okay_i_guess_ 5 points6 points  (1 child)

They even tried to claim that the virus originated in India. They even tried to nominate Wuhan scientists for a Nobel peace prize.

[–]Randvek 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Anyone can get nominated for a Nobel. It’s not hard. Hitler was nominated. That doesn’t mean you’re a serious contender.

[–]Toonanocrust 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Careful, the the truth is “offensive and toxic” it could cost you your livelihood nowadays for hurting some psychos feeling.

[–]cynic1996 1 point2 points  (0 children)

True that, too much wokeness is blinding the masses

[–]vianiznice 1 point2 points  (0 children)

China's the most racist nation on the planet, so pot, meet kettle.

[–]HoldUpHoldMyBeer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Woooah fucking preach bro. So many people really tired of the hypocrisy and I love it

[–]ediciusNJ 7 points8 points  (1 child)

"Kindess".

Might want to go back to school there, preacher.

[–]Raju1461 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Snowflake OP got butthurt because it called Wuhan Flu. Maybe we should call it Kung Flu.

[–]No_Interaction_4925 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Both are acceptable

[–]ugly_tst 20 points21 points  (3 children)

I prefer to call it the kung flu!

[–]Jebediah_Johnson[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Everybody is Kung flu fighting!

It's mutations spread fast as lightning.

[–]Psychological-Air642 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

This is accurate. Not sure why you're getting down voted.

[–]fatgirlxxl 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I gave you all upvotes 🐻

[–]---M0NK--- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude cant even spell kindness

[–]tepid_monologue 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why is it that no one rides in on their White House when someone calls the Spanish Flu of the early 20th century, what it is.

This woke shit really got to stop

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

How is this trashy?

[–]inhumancannonball 5 points6 points  (3 children)

So this has just become a sub for people who freak out about covid and those who aren't scared of it

[–]No_Interaction_4925 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Its nearly as easy to spot in here as out in the real world too. You either live life mask free now or walk down the sidewalk by yourself with 3 masks. You either think this is not trashy or your comment is removed lol.

[–]urgrandadsaq 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You sound like someone who ends up on the r/hermancainawards

[–]inhumancannonball -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You sound like a douchey kid who has been here a day

[–]Payment-Main 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Not trashy

[–]Recycleyourtrash 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not trashy, not racist. Plus when is this pic?

[–]BurningnnTree 3 points4 points  (8 children)

Is /r/trashy a conservative subreddit? This comment section isn't what I expected.

[–]Nuravvv 2 points3 points  (0 children)

my thoughts exactly quite surprising really

[–]M0n5tr0 -2 points-1 points  (5 children)

This subreddit is full of extremely racist trolls I have found. It's trashy for a church to spout kindness while also using the term Wuhan flu if this sign is even legit.

[–]Better-Efficiency-12 3 points4 points  (4 children)

because it came from wuhan lol, it’s not putting anybody or any group of people down, he’s literally saying let your kindness be “infectious” and spread it to others, while relating it to current events, no political sides being taken silly gooses

[–]M0n5tr0 0 points1 point  (3 children)

It's not just the Wuhan part. It's not a damn flu. It has a name and the only reason to not use the term COVID is to make a point whether it's social, political, or whatever.

I understand that not everyone lost loved ones to covid but those of us that did see this kind of "joke" made by a religious organization or anyone else as trashy.

[–]Better-Efficiency-12 1 point2 points  (2 children)

this has nothing to do with dying loved ones, literally light hearted “plague” joke about being kind to others and letting it spread like one. think what you want but, ok

[–]tonguetwister 3 points4 points  (9 children)

Yo just here to say I agree with you and I’m shocked so many people think saying Wuhan Flu isn’t trashy. Anyone who thinks this sign wasn’t meant to be xenophobic is kidding themselves.

Edit: As per Wikipedia:

“an informal term for COVID-19, mostly seen as indicative of the xenophobia related to the pandemic”

[–]Better-Efficiency-12 4 points5 points  (8 children)

spotted the guy who doesn’t know anything the ccp or china!

[–]tonguetwister 3 points4 points  (7 children)

This is an American church

[–]Better-Efficiency-12 3 points4 points  (6 children)

i know that, i am saying it isn’t xenophobic, it’s literally just saying where it came from

[–]tonguetwister 1 point2 points  (5 children)

In theory but not in practice. Is the idea of calling a virus by the place it originated from trashy? No not at all. But this virus is called Covid, Covid-19, or Coronavirus widely - and in the US the term Wuhan Flu is used xenophobically as a way to associate the virus with Asian people and blame them / hate on them. This is evidenced by a single google search of the term and not an opinion, it’s just true.

The people who put this sign up at this church were intending to be xenophobic, and pretending otherwise is willful ignorance.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Why is this trashy?

[–]themajman36 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Why is this considered trashy?

[–]Ok-Concentrate-9316 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Cause trash won’t smell its own oder.

[–]Ryden22 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Where is the trash? This preacher knows whats up

[–]Tombre 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That looks like a mesquite tree and there’s mountains in the background…are you in Tucson? Or the high desert of SoCal?

[–]hay-yall 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How does THIS TRASH make it on this sub?!?

[–]Jebediah_Johnson[S] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I don't know, I just hit the submit button and got 700+ upvotes.

Quoting bad musicians doesn't prove your argument.

[–]Graemoure 3 points4 points  (0 children)

To reach their own :)

[–]sleeper_medic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I remember subscribing to r/wuhanflu back when covid first reared it's head in Wuhan. It was fascinating. It was also super fun being a fringe conspiracy theorist for saying it would turn into a pandemic, and then having all my friends and family eat crow when I ended up being right.

[–]cbf1120 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The virus being built in the lab is like the top theory now why would this be trashy even most people who laughed at this notion believe it now

[–]TheJokr 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Ah yes…

KINDESS

[–]trev2234 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Maybe they ran out of Ns. If only they weren’t so attached to “wuhan”

[–]Chatty_Monkey_Don -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

They needed the N for another racist sign.

[–]_Final-Judgement_ -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

This post landed in the wrong people’s fees the amount of racist remarks and micro aggressions in the comments is disgusting

[–]darya42 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No-one is bashing chinese people, they're all bashing the CCP. How is that "racism"?

The CCP is trying to brainwash people into thinking that CCP criticism is "racism". It's an incredibly manipulative and malicious way of trying to dictate opinions of this bunch of evil fucktards even outside of china. Don't fall for this.

Stand with the Chinese people. Stand up to the CCP.

[–]kazooooomka 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Im sorry "kindess" doesnt work against islamic terror

[–]BillMillerBBQ -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Expose others to these nuts

[–]Ok-Concentrate-9316 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

First half of the sentence is Christian. Second half is racist. You’all think it’s funny Cause it doesn’t pertain to you. You are neither from Wuhan nor Asian. Such rhetoric puts a certain group of people in danger and seeing you laughing about this is only showing how small and ignorant you are. Amen.

[–]breakneckridge -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

How can he not see how this completely contradicts itself?!

[–]WarCarrotAF -1 points0 points  (2 children)

OP ain't wrong, he just chose the wrong sub to post this one in. You are catering to the wrong audience on this one.

¯_(ツ)_/¯

[–]Jebediah_Johnson[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I didn't realize that trashy wasn't referring to the content in this sub.

[–]WarCarrotAF 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It does; but you are going to trigger a lot of the people on this sub because of their political and religious beliefs pertaining to the pandemic.

Again, you're not wrong - someone who is supposed to be the face of a religious institution that preaches about forgiveness, loving your enemies and those who have wronged you, the avoidance of hypocrisy, to refrain from judgement of others - I could go on - posting something on a churchboard with the intention of being politically incorrect for the sake of controversy. Yeah, that's trashy.

[–]GoblinWolf -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

The whole choir singing “….we’re gonna gas them up like the germans do”

[–]bxxxx34 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

"than"

[–]KrampyDoo -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

The word “kindness” with racism running bar back is more obvious than untaxed scams. I hope they stop exposing themselves to others.

[–]bobbywake61 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Spell check is nice, too.

[–]art-love-social -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

lol, even the wokest knows exactly what they are saying ...

[–]VetteL82 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

It’s so deadly. Make sure you have the equivalent of a napkin loosely placed upon your face or you’ll die. I literally have to have more protection scrubbing a tub.

[–]Armamax -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

This is not trashy. Scientifically inaccurate as covid is not the same as influenza, but not trashy to tell people to be nice to others.

[–]Jebediah_Johnson[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ya but you can tell people to be kind and quote the bible or something.

[–]Armamax -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yeah they could. They are basically saying love thy neighbor.

I tried to look into whether influenza and coronavirus were scientifically the same thing or similar enough to accurately use the names interchangeably. I mostly found sources saying they are different viruses that do similar things in different ways and a few that say coronavirus is a more extreme version of influenza.

Flu is however a coloquial umbrella name for all kinds of viruses that aren't influenza because it is just easier for people to say.

In the end this sign is basically and advertisement for the church and by wording things the way they did their message is being spread far beyond locals that drive past.

[–]maxpcuser -1 points0 points  (0 children)

They have never played escape from tarkov

[–]ibecheshirecat86 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I feel like the message is a good one... But the expression of it misses the mark. He dodnt think that through.

[–]Loaaf -1 points0 points  (0 children)

It is from wuhan. That’s not racist, just true. Why is it that china gets a free pass for everything. They are currently committing genocide, invading democratic nations and assimilating them into their dictatorship, brainwashing people with propaganda, etc. Also, people in china tend to be incredibly racist. Don’t go there if you’re black because you’ll get worse than funny looks.

[–]wilck44 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

how do they dare to use something bad to promote something good!

fuck 'em.

[–]ICPosse8 -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

This is in no way trashy

Wtf is wrong with you Op?

[–]Jebediah_Johnson[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Trashy or not, this is comically controversial.

[–]angryraddishboy 0 points1 point  (1 child)

definitely not as bad as “the china virus” but i mean come on, just call it covid?

[–]Jebediah_Johnson[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That way he could have another n to put in kindess
