So..attacking a foreign corporate economic model is now racist?
No. That's absurd.
I see a racist connotation in the tweet.
I will stand by you here Kali. I think sweeping the connotation under the rug will only hurt, rather than actually point out the facts (as ATSers
have done). But that wasn't the point of the tweet. The point was to connect McConnell to the Chinese and, oh by the way guess who has his ear?
His Chinese wife! The whole tweet was based on not trying to point out facts but rile up the base.
Kudos Kali for standing strong. Come on people, step out of your predetermined boxes of ideology and see that you are being played by these
edit on 27-2-2013 by ownbestenemy because: (no reason given)
If the Russians were taking the jobs, and Mitch had a Russian wife, you could then suggest that saying that he potentially is compromised because of
his wife...is that racist also?
What is a Chinese person? what color? What is a Russian? What is an American?
We have more diversity in the west, but a nation is not a race..a nation is a nation..its land and a government.
If someone starts making "ching chong wing wong" comments, then ya..that's racist as it attacks a stereotype
There is not much difference between a Chinese person and a Korean..if Mitch's wife was Korean, that comment wouldn't have been made..because Korea
is fine (well, the southern bit anyhow).
I still stand that the comment is unacceptable. It is McCarthyism (Chinese spys everywhere)..and should be boo'ed...but I am simply not seeing racism
here as it is attacking a economic policy.
