From KTLA in Los Angeles:

Irvine police: Man kidnapped, tried to sexually assault woman in retaliation for anti-Asian hate crimes

Erika Martin
2 days ago

A man was arrested after attacking a woman in her car outside her Irvine apartment building, holding her hostage and attempting to sexually assault her in retaliation for recent hate crimes against Asian Americans, police said Friday.

Michael Sangbong Rhee, 37, of Lake Forest, targeted a woman sitting in her car outside her apartment in the area of Harvard Avenue and Coronado around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Irvine police said in a news release. …

Rhee was booked on $1 million bail on suspicion of kidnapping with the intent to commit a sexual assault. Inmate records showed he remained in custody Friday night.

The woman he assaulted was of Asian descent herself, but detectives say they believe he targeted her because he thought she was white “based on the totality of the investigation and statements made by Rhee.”

Police say they will ask the Orange County District Attorney’s Office to file hate crime charges against Rhee because the attack was in retaliation for recent hate incidents targeting Asian Americans.

That reminds me: I run iSteve fundraisers in April, August, and December.

Large or small, I find each donation to be a personal message of encouragement to keep doing what I’m doing. I more or less figured out the basic logic of the 21st Century, which hasn’t made me popular, but with your support I can keep on keeping on pointing out how the world works.

Here are eight ways for you to contribute:

First: You can use Paypal (non-tax deductible) by going to the page on my old blog here. Paypal accepts most credit cards. Contributions can be either one-time only, monthly, or annual. (Monthly is nice.)

Second: You can mail a non-tax deductible donation to:

Steve Sailer
P.O Box 4142
Valley Village, CA 91617

Third: You can make a tax deductible contribution via VDARE by clicking here.

Please don’t forget to click my name at the VDARE site so the money goes to me: first, click on “Earmark your donation,” then click on “Steve Sailer:”

VDARE has been kiboshed from use of Paypal for being, I dunno, EVIL. But you can give via credit cards, Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin, check, money order, or stock.

Note: the VDARE site goes up and down on its own schedule, so if this link stops working, please let me know.

Fourth: Most banks now allow fee-free money transfers via Zelle.

If you have a Wells Fargo bank account, you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Wells Fargo SurePay/Zelle. Just tell WF SurePay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address steveslrAT aol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). (Non-tax deductible.) Please note, there is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is good for large contributions.

Fifth: if you have a Chase bank account (or even other bank accounts), you can transfer money to me (with no fees) via Chase QuickPay/Zelle (FAQ). Just tell Chase QuickPay/Zelle to send the money to my ancient AOL email address (steveslrATaol.com — replace the AT with the usual @). If Chase asks for the name on my account, it’s StevenSailer with an n at the end of Steven. (Non-tax deductible.) There is no 2.9% fee like with Paypal or Google Wallet, so this is also good for large contributions.

Zelle might work with other banks too. Here’s a Zelle link for CitiBank. And Bank of America.

Zelle is really a good system: easy to use and the fees are nonexistent, unlike, say, Paypal.

 

Sixth: send money via the Paypal-like Google Wallet to my Gmail address (that’s isteveslrATgmail .com — replace the AT with a @). (Non-tax deductible.)

Seventh: You can use Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase payments are not tax deductible. Below are links to two Coinbase pages of mine. This first is if you want to enter a U.S. dollar-denominated amount to pay me.

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in U.S. Dollars)

This second is if you want to enter a Bitcoin-denominated amount. (Remember one Bitcoin is currently worth many U.S. dollars.)

Pay With Bitcoin (denominated in Bitcoins)

Eighth: At one reader’s request, I recently added Square as an 8th fundraising medium, although I’m vague on how it works. If you want to use Square, send me an email telling me how much to send you an invoice for. Or, if you know an easier way for us to use Square, please let me know.

Thanks.

    You must not have gotten the news: attacks on asians in America are a product of white supremacy regardless of the race of the culprit. In America today, Asians view whites the same way that Jews did half a century ago: as relatively stupid obstacles to be overcome on their way to the worldly success for which nature has endowed them.

  24. The responsibility for this crime has to be laid on the media and their style guides which require e-racing crime reports when minorities are the perps.  Were these attacks properly attributed to black attackers, suspicion and enmity would actually be aimed at the racial group responsible.

  25. Altai says:

    The woman he assaulted was of Asian descent herself, but detectives say they believe he targeted her because he thought she was white

    Wait, did he kidnap Chloe Bennet?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chloe_Bennet

    Bennet has described the American film and television industry as racist against Asians. In a 2016 interview, she noted, “Oh, the first audition I went on after I changed my name [from Wang to Bennet], I got booked. So that’s a pretty clear little snippet of how Hollywood works.” In September 2017, after actor Ed Skrein stepped down from his role as Major Ben Daimio in the then-in production film Hellboy following backlash over the fact that Skrein, a white man, was playing Daimio, a character who is Japanese-American in the Hellboy comics, Bennet wrote a since-deleted post on Instagram in which she applauded Skrein’s decision, and addressed her own experiences as an Asian actor in Hollywood, saying, “Changing my last name doesn’t change the fact that my BLOOD is half Chinese, that I lived in China, speak Mandarin or that I was culturally raised both American and Chinese. It means I had to pay my rent, and Hollywood is racist and wouldn’t cast me with a last name that made them uncomfortable.”

    She went to live with her grandmother in China for only 3 or 4 years as an adult because she thought her non-Asian appearance would help her corner a market in China, it didn’t. (But I’m sure she’d never say the Chinese media is racist since it wouldn’t cast somebody named Wang who didn’t look like they expected) Maybe she just didn’t learn Mandarin fast enough? Who knows, she failed there so went back tot racist Hollywood who gave her a small fortune despite being one of the least charismatic actors of all time.

    I suspect the real problem for her using her real surname is people would look her up and assumed she looked Asian or at least Hapa and instead they got a Latino-looking woman and passed. When she changed her name more people looking for somebody who didn’t look Asian would find her and send her audition offers.

    It almost looks like an inversion of World War Hair complaints. Bennet wishes she looked less white or perhaps more striking like other Hapas. Maybe she is only 1/4 which makes her protestations to her Chinese ‘BLOOD’ all the funnier.

    Incidentally the character the white guy gave up playing was actually only half Japanese, yet they thought a white guy wasn’t appropriate so they cast a fully Asian guy.

  31. Wang is a slang word in some English dialects that means penis and makes her sound like a porno actress.

    No doubt she is too innocent to know this, but she could have changed her surname to something like O’Toole or Ryder and she would still not have been hired.

    Bennet was a good choice as she could step right into a role in Pride and Prejudice without even changing her name.

    See how easy it is to get hired in Hollywood? Just get yourself a good English or Scottish name.

    Sometimes I get the sense that a lot of Non-White groups view Whites in the same manner that a predator views a wounded animal.

    To be fair, in the case of Asians, they’re mostly just economic predators who are interested in making money. In the case of Blacks (and European Muslims), they’re often actual real-life predators who literally chase you down and assault, rape, or kill you.

    Just read about all the Black-on-White physical attacks that occur in this country. Or the forced sex slavery and rape in the UK (Rotherham, Manchester, etc), Holland, and various other Western Euro nations. It’s really quite horrifying.

    Nature has only endowed them to imitate whites, whose creation of the modern technological world is singular.

Since Asians are now attacking other Asians at the behest of leftist journalists claiming attacks on Asians are committed by white supremacists, white supremacists’ pretending to be leftist journalists in order to accuse minority attackers of Asians of being white supremacists and thus motivate minorities to attack each other is the greatest trick white supremacists have played yet.

No Todd, that guy who was a nationalist at home will become an anti-nationalist when he emigrates. He is only a nationalist for his own country. The more ethnocentric the immigrants you import, the more they will undermine national identity.

    Prime example, Cenk Uygur, who was a turbo right-wing nationalist Grey Wolf when he lived in his homeland of Turkey but became an advocate for SJW politics when living in the US. Has he actually changed? No, just what he perceived was being in the best interests of Turks changed with his living context.

    Perhaps, but the thing about the mentally ill is that get the same media stimuli the rest of us do. They’re just more likely to do something about it.

    Hey, he was just trying to “eradicate Whiteness!”. A noble goal — he was just a little confused about tactics. Though I’m not sure that really works when combined with the older “race is a social construct” canard in the manner that he employs it. You’re supposed to shift between the two tactically [with an occasional “Just skin color™!” thrown in as low energy mystification], not employ them simultaneously.

    But more seriously, yeah of course. There are 2 major possibilities here:

    1. He’s not very bright, and is trying to employ this tactic cynically:
    -Be POC
    -Get caught committing major felony — what do?
    -Shut up and call a lawyer, or… try to claim it was “justified” because your motives were in alignment with a hegemonic media narrative. The best-known example of this would be the tried-and-true “Yeah I murdered that White guy, but it was “justified” because, uh… he called me a n—-r! Yeah, that’s it!”
    Though I kinda doubt this one’s gonna work as well as the “I killed him because [I now claim] he said a taboo word!” defense does for Negroes.

    2. He’s a little “off” mentally in a way that makes him unusually susceptible to propaganda, and is actually telling the truth about his motives — in which case this attack would be yet another data point in favor of the common hypothesis that many anti-White narratives promoted by the so-called “news” media amount to deliberately-constructed stochastic terrorism.

    Or some combination of the two, of course.

    Exactly. The long-discredited “Evil Whitey is ‘racist’ — he shows ‘too much’ in-group preference and is ‘unfair’ to people outside his tribe” canard is simple projection from the most ethnonarcissistic tribe in the world. Even people who reject this blood libel often fail to realize that the default morality for most humans rests largely on in-group/ out-group distinctions, not on universal principles. They are projecting their own sense of “fairness” onto groups that have no such notion.

    Though, to be fair, East Asians are probably not the most obvious practitioners of this sort of tribal morality. Apart from the obvious (a certain Levantine desert tribe), one of the most prominent examples is pajeets. They vote overwhelmingly Democrat [i.e anti-White, pro-open borders/ rootless cosmopolitanism, etc.] in America. But those same Indian “Democrats” very often are strong supporters of the BJP/ Modi/ “Hindutva” regime back in their homeland, while the “anti-racist” Congress Party has essentially zero organized support among Indian expats in the US:
    https://laist.com/2019/04/24/modi_india_election_diaspora_support_los_angeles_bjp.php

    Or just ask any non-Indian (or Indian of the “wrong” caste) who’s ever worked for an Indian-run company…

    Open displays of this sort of strong in-group/ out-group moral distinction are, of course, very much frowned upon when exhibited by people of European descent, while viewed as perfectly normal — even laudable — for a certain semitic tribe (and, to a lesser extent, Blacks). “Model minorities” fall somewhere in between. “Desi”s aren’t really attacked by the media for this behavior, but you can tell that open support for Hindutva is somewhat frowned upon by oligarchs: Biden nominated 20+ subcontinentals to key positions in his administration, but none of them have any RSS-BJP links.
    https://www.msn.com/en-in/money/topstories/us-president-joe-biden-excludes-democrats-with-rss-bjp-links/ar-BB1cZbIQ

    Though, to be fair, this policy could reflect casteism rather than discrimination against Hindu supremacists. Kamala Devi Harris is a notorious Brahmin supremacist, and views Modi — an officially-certified OBC (Other Backward Caste) — as “beneath her.”

    BTW, the Asians were not from the Indian subcontinent but rather from Korea, China, SE. Asia.

    Orange County has a huge Oriental population, but UCI is a pretty competitive school, and draws from a considerably wider area. But CA in general has acquired a lot of East Asian residents over the past few decades, and there’s an additional factor with CA schools — they get a lot of “Chinese Chinese” [as opposed to “American” Chinese] students:

    That graph only goes up to 2011 — there are now about 363K Chinese college students in the US. More recently:

    India is the number 2 exporter of foreign students to the US, but they tend to be more spread out across the country than Chinese (possibly due to better English fluency). And the college in home country >> lie about credentials >> H1B visa route is more common with Indians than Chinese, of course.

    I also wanted to thank you for the graphs in your comment below. That 360,000 Chinese students in America does not give the whole story, because parents and in-laws come to take care of their grandkids on a rotational process with those “tourist” visas. That 360-odd thousand probably works out to a million or so just associated with the universities with the parents/in-laws and kids here, many of them still trying to stay.

    Many private high schools, including the Catholic school near us are actively recruiting Chinese kids cause money.

  66. What are the odds that if the defendant was black and the victim white the Orange County DA would be considering an hate crime enhancement to the charges? This smells of another attack on an Asian. Weird.

    Yes, some millions… like you can check in a short tour around Turkey.

    Has an asian man ever raped a black man? That might be one for the history books. Asian man raping a black woman is rare enough. Only one I can think of is that cop in Texas I think it was. And he might have been half asian.

    No, they’re probably right. But the important question for whites isn’t whether Asians and Jews are smarter on average than they are. The important question for whites is one purely of self-interest: is it good for whites to be ruled by Nonwhites? Have the lives of whites improved since surrendering rulership to Jews in several important sectors of society? Not as far as I can see. Will Asian rulers treat whites better than Jews have? There’s no reason to think so. This is a zero sum game, which means that when Jews or Asians win, whites lose.

  70. Hey Steve, wanted to donate but both Coinbase links are broken. Maybe just post the address(es) directly in the article?

    You’re welcome.

    Yeah that’s been going on for a while.

    And from the standpoint of Chinese students who may not be the brightest, but have wealthy parents, it’s a good way to dodge the “Gaokao”, while learning enough English to get by in a US university. Considerably more expensive — but less risky — than just hiring a “gunman” to take the TOEFL/ SAT/ etc. for you [e.g. https://examinator.co/ ] and trying to wing it after you get to college here.
