Call me a stone-cold pessimist, but when the news starts to report a rise in anything, I immediately become suspicious. “What are they trying to pull now?” I immediately wonder. So when they recently revived last April’s story-line that hate crimes against Asians are rising, my natural instinct was to yell at the top of my lungs, “BULLSHIT!”
But that’s just me, an older white guy who’s been married to an Asian nearly half of his life. Here’s my theory about the so-called rise in Asian-hate crimes: They may be happening, but they are not what you think. The crimes are NOT predominately being committed by white conservatives, even though that is the conclusion one would draw from the reporting done by the legacy media. Even if some of them are, those people are outliers and not representative of Conservatives as a group.
Conservatives know fully well that–as Trump rightfully reminded us–Covid-19 came from China. However, we are smart enough NOT to blame the Chinese people as a whole, much less Asians in general. We blame the Chinese Communist Party. And right now, the CCP is exactly who I blame for this despicable rise in anti-Asian hate crimes, whether real or fake.
Let’s start with motive: The CCP has good reason to want to divide America along racial lines, and the CCP has proven that it is highly involved in generating this division. Early on in the pandemic last year, the CCP sent out a memo to over 200 socialist organizations imploring them to use the Coronavirus as a chance to push socialist agendas worldwide. They supported BLM and watched with glee as rioters took to the streets during a pandemic (demonstrating to the public that absolutely NO lives mattered to them).
Later on that year, it was discovered that the CCP had funded organizations like Seed the Vote to actively campaign against President Trump. According to their website, “Seed the Vote became an enormous volunteer powerhouse to defeat Trump. Now, we will turn that power to organizing to win the Senate.” A look at the organizations that Seed the Vote works with reveals Leftist/socialist groups, many of which have their own seedy ties to China.
And finally, the organization that is crying out the loudest about anti-Asian hate crimes also has ties to the CCP. It is called Stop AAPI Hate.
According to the RAIR Foundation, “The spokespeople for this initiative consist largely of three individuals: Russell Jeung, chair and professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University, Manjusha Kulkarni, executive director of the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON) and Cynthia Choi, co-executive director of the “Maoist-leaning” Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA). The trio works closely with known front organizations for Liberation Road, according to communism and subversion expert Trevor Loudon, who spoke exclusively with RAIR Foundation USA.”
RAIR also makes a good point that the database of so-called hate crimes against Asians is not available to the public, and it is made up of only anecdotes, most of which, to me, sound more similar to bullying like I experienced nearly every day of junior high and high school.
The Chinese for Affirmative Action organization recently helped pass and implement Proposition N — “a groundbreaking Non-Citizen Voting Ordinance that allows all public school parents and guardians to vote in local school board elections.” San Francisco State University was long home to a Confucius Institute, which has been exposed as a tool for the Chinese Communist Party to steal intellectual secrets from American research companies.
Asians have nothing to fear from their white conservative allies. It’s the communists and socialists who seek to destroy America that they really need to watch out for. It’s worth noting that anti-Chinese sentiment is up around the world. The Chinese are experiencing trouble in Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia.
And in truth, anti-white hate crime is currently more serious than anti-anything-else crime.
