What a nice, nostalgic throwback to the good old days of last winter when the Liberal Establishment kept lecturing us that the really big threat posed by the coronavirus was white racists not patronizing Chinese restaurants enough …

  1. Democrats in California are hard at work reducing the number of Asians at UCLA, etc, but thank God the House passed a resolution condemning anti-Asian racism.

    My first thought was that this resolution is a distraction from something that will piss off Chinese people.

    Symbolism matters, especially on politically-charged topics. Anyone who can be bullied into voting for this (or, even worse, who doesn't need to be bullied into it) will vote for real laws with the same toxic ideological and tribal backing.

  4. Asians do themselves no favors in the attitude that they take.

    The most common response from Asians is: “you’re being racist to distract from your own failures”.

    Many also refuse to accept that China is responsible for the virus, and spread conspiracy theories about it coming from somewhere else.

    At least that is the attitude that I have encountered from Asians in online spaces when discussing the virus. Virtually none will accept that China is primarily to blame.

    Since Japan is a civilized country, it's highly unlikely that such a pestilence would ever have originated there. But if one had, you may be sure that the Japanese would be contrite and apologetic, and would have taken the initiative worldwide to help other nations get a grip on the disaster.

    China, instead, tells the world to suck it and besides, China's doing fine. China's always doing fine. Instead they lecture the USA on how racist we are, and the U.S. House of Representatives is only too happy to climb aboard that train, now condemning Americans for their sentiments.

    "Asians do themselves no favors in the attitude that they take"

    I seem to be surrounded by Asians. So I have a broad generalization to impart: Older Asians, born in the yellow lands, tend to be brusque. A lot of it is due to their English limitation. Americanization is corrupting the younger Asians as they meld into the dominant Black Planet culture (Chuck warned us). Some of them, mainly the males, give off negative vibes to tall and handsome whiteys like me. The younger females seem more casual and less uptight. The Asians in my neighborhood appear to be Filipino, Korean, and a few lurking dot-heads. The Filipinos are definitely more white-friendly. The Filipinas secrete attraction magnetism to handsome and tall white guys, like me. In terms of Asian women I prefer Vietnamese or Chinese. Sorry, Filipina. No sale.

  6. Almost immediately wikipedia had a whole page dedicated to ‘incidents of xenophobia and racism related to the COVID-19 pandemic’ that was early on one of the main components of the article on the pandemic. When it was first started it had nothing but the likes of a comment from an Argentine delivery man to a Chinese supermarket owner jokingly greeting him as ‘coronavirus’ and, of course, the ubiquitous reduction of foot traffic to Chinese restaurants.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_incidents_of_xenophobia_and_racism_related_to_the_COVID-19_pandemic

    Since then they have actual incidents of alleged beatings etc doled out to Asians but since all the violence is coming from non-whites and almost all of it from non-Western countries it doesn’t seem to matter to the media.

    I think I have the plot for Wolf Warrior 3 though.

    Why do females think tats look good on them? Because thirsty simps will still orbit a tatted thot?

    Anyway, this year has been beneficial to China in what is arguably a major way: all "Asian" people in North America are being pressured to shill for China, and any criticism of China is being construed as an attack on all "Asians." The Chinese in the Anglosphere have long been a subversive fifth column, but now they're recuiting all "Asians" in their quest for a global Chinese empire.

  8. Speaking of racial insensitivity, were you aware that Portland’s mayor is elected in what is called– or at least used to be called– a “jungle primary”? The kind of thing found in Napoleonic backwaters like Louisiana and France.

    This Wheeler guy won a majority and avoided a second round, but two of the three previous elections led to a “runoff”, which sounds like something the EPA should get involved in.

    Under Louisiana’s jungle primary system…

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_Louisiana_gubernatorial_election

    The so-called Louisiana primary is the common term for the Louisiana general election for local, state, and congressional offices. On election day, all candidates for the same office appear together on the ballot, often including several candidates from each major party. The candidate who receives a simple majority is elected. If no candidate wins a simple majority in the first round, there is a runoff one month later between the top two candidates to determine the winner… It is also used for municipal elections in Portland, Oregon.

    How appropriate to today’s Portland! When is the next one?

    An underappreciated aspect of our own presidential elections is that we only ever have to vote once. Second and third rounds are delegated.

    Well, it did help clear up some if that unecessary end of life care for some older folks, culling them in weeks instead of months.

  28. going by the current numbers, half the people killed by the virus were vibrant.

    and now it looks like about 80% of the people under 30 who died were vibrant.

    that darn virus is as racist as an AI program – maybe it was created by a racist AI program!

  29. Remember when we were told the lockdowns were required to flatten the curve ? Now the lockdowns will continue until the number of cases approaches zero.

    Remember when Fauci and the CDC and the surgeon general told us masks do not work? Now masks are mandatory everywhere, despite few new cases being detected and the hospitals empty.

    Remember when John Ioannidis had predicted an IFR of .2% back in May when the experts were predicting a rate of 1%…looks like he was correct. Almost nobody under the age of 50 dies from COVID , unless they are very sick. Even George Floyd survived COVID while fighting heart disease and ingesting drugs.

    I seem to be surrounded by Asians. So I have a broad generalization to impart: Older Asians, born in the yellow lands, tend to be brusque. A lot of it is due to their English limitation. Americanization is corrupting the younger Asians as they meld into the dominant Black Planet culture (Chuck warned us). Some of them, mainly the males, give off negative vibes to tall and handsome whiteys like me. The younger females seem more casual and less uptight. The Asians in my neighborhood appear to be Filipino, Korean, and a few lurking dot-heads. The Filipinos are definitely more white-friendly. The Filipinas secrete attraction magnetism to handsome and tall white guys, like me. In terms of Asian women I prefer Vietnamese or Chinese. Sorry, Filipina. No sale.
