The left pressures Asians to join their fake narrative of white supremacy

Post by cassowary » Wed Jun 09, 2021 7:14 am

Are Activists Protecting Asians from Hate—or Protecting Their Narrative of White Supremacy from Criticism?
A third media narrative has been that anti-Asian violence is caused by white supremacy. At CNN, the headline was “White supremacy and hate are haunting Asian Americans.”
But most anti Asian crimes are caused by Black Americans.
In regard to actual hate crimes, as that term is defined by the FBI, Voice of America has reported that “only two of the 20 people arrested last year in connection with [New York City anti-Asian hate crime] attacks were white, according to New York Police Department data analyzed by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism. Eleven were African Americans, six were white Hispanics and one was a Black Hispanic.” According to the reporter, Masood Farivar, “most police departments do not publish this kind of data, but anecdotal evidence suggests the pattern seen in New York has emerged in other cities, as well.”
What is going on? I think the reason is very simple. Poverty diproportionately blights the black community and they are mostly in the blue cities or states. Democrat policies don't help them. Why are they poor? So they got to blame white supremacy. But sticking out like a sore thumb are the Asian Americans who are on the whole rich. So if the narrative of white supremacy that the left pedals is true, why are the Asians' on the average rich?
Indeed, one wonders what the true goal is here. Advocates will tell you that their fight against white supremacy is a means to protect hate-crime victims. But often it seems that means and end have become reversed, and that these crimes now serve as a prop in the larger ideological campaign against our supposedly white-supremacy-saturated culture—a campaign that Asians themselves are now being pressured to join. Whatever you may think of this ideology, it seems doubtful that its champions are motivated primarily by the need to protect Asians from violence.
So the leftist (Democrat) politicians pressure the Asians to join their narrative and the fake news media sings the same tune. The politicians sell this lie to gain power, money and girls. That's the true goal. They don't care for the voters, no matter what colour.

I feel sorry for the black community. I understand their feelings because I have a Black American friend that I know since my university days in the US. It is sp hard to accept that it is their own failing. The truth hurts. So they easily fall for the lie that their failure is due to racism.

It seems racism is more than skin deep


In fact the "Science" shows that in some cases race is a parasitic condition

Whiteness is a parasitic condition? That sounds racist to me. Asians are white adjacent? What does that mean?

(I join this discussion with some reluctance.)

"The left pressures Asians to join their fake narrative of white supremacy?"

1) White supremacy? Pale complexioned Caucasians still form the majority population of the United States. There would be something very strange if they were not politically dominant.

2) Independently of that: there are some quite militant organised white supremist groups within the United States. Even US government national security bodies have earmarked these as a threat to US democracy.

3) Anti-Asian sentiment has risen in recent years both in the USA and in my country: principally as a consequence of the PRC's growing power assertiveness in world affairs. But in the case of the USA additionally stoked up by Donald Trump while president for entirely selfish political purposes.

Somehow I don't believe that "the left" (whoever these are) in the United States would need to "pressure" Asians as it would be rather obvious to these latter on which side their bread is buttered.

And the CCP er Democrats have gotten a lot of votes for making that bogus claim.

CLM - Chinese Lives Matter. But to whom exactly? Certainly not the CCP

Of course, as the majority group, they would be politically dominant. But that's not white supremacy means. White supremacy means using racist means to keep whites in power and wealth at the expense of minorities. It is like Ketuanan Melayu or Malay Supremacy in Malaysia. That means laws that discriminates against a racial group like what they had in the South at one time.

I don't think that is true in America today. Asian Americans have done well. All this talk about white supremacy by Democrats is just a means to get black votes. It is also useful to tell this lie to explain away black failure. They fall for it everytime because the truth is painful - that black failure is due mostly to their own cultural flaws.
2) Independently of that: there are some quite militant organised white supremist groups within the United States. Even US government national security bodies have earmarked these as a threat to US democracy.
There are such racist groups but there are also black racist groups as well. I think the national security groups are saying that because they support Democrats and so must adhere to the Democrat narrative.

Trump supports Asians. When an Asian group sued Havard and other Ivy League universities for racial discrimination in admissions, the Trump administration supported them. But Biden withdrew his support because he owes the blacks for hsi election victory. Trump wanted to drum up anti CCP rhetoric but unfortunately be was perceived to be anti Chinese or anti Asian.

It is indeed sad when antagonism to a country's foreign policy leads to racial hatred. Is it so difficult to see the difference between a country's government and the people living in that country? And then we are surprised when genocide and war crimes occur...

The worst genocides happen under socialist governments.

That aside, a lot of humans are not smart enough to make the distinction between government and people. That’s why someone could get clobbered by belonging to the wrong race at the moment. It happens everywhere. Lots of stupid people in the world.
