Harvard is the hotbed of anti-Asian-American hate

Democrats are ginning up hate crimes against Asian-Americans (meticulously avoiding the alleged perp's race if he isn't white) for a number of reasons, not the least of which is to silence criticism of Red China. Politicians dare not call the Wuhan Virus the Wuhan Virus for fear of being called racist.

Lee Ann O’Neal, a Houston-based communications consultant, wrote a column for Real Clear Politics, "Surge in Asian Hate Crimes? More Bogeyman Than Fact."

She wrote, "I am Korean American, and the idea that someone might randomly attack me at the gym or hurl racist invectives at me in the grocery checkout line makes me uneasy. So I looked into the numbers being used to support the so-called surge in attacks. They turn out to be thin, with data points cherry-picked to invoke fear and bolster the wobbly claim that the Atlanta shooter was driven by racism. 

"A report by the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism drew national media attention for identifying a 149% increase in anti-Asian hate crimes in 2020 compared to 2019 in 16 of our largest cities. A startling number -- until you learn the actual number of hate crimes in those cities rose from 49 to 122 – in a country of 330 million people.

"In my hometown, Houston, there were three last year. The year before, there were none."

Bravo.

She looked behind the percentage at what the actual number is.

And as we know, the definition of hate crime is ill-defined, by design.

O'Neal ended her piece, "The murders at the spas in Atlanta are despicable. But if any criminal act with a victim and perpetrator of different races is a hate crime, the legal distinction becomes farcical. Wielding inflated, misleading numbers and overheated, but meaningless, language for the sake of a hot take media narrative insults the 18 million Americans of Asian, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Island descent – and misleads all Americans."

I will pick up where she left off: misleads all Americans.

She did not explain why the media wants to mislead all Americans.

I will.

Red China is one reason. Labeling all criticism of a person or organization as racist silences critics. Islamophobia had a nice run for a decade after 9/11. 

Other reasons include conservative inroads among Asian Americans.

But never discount the power of diversion. President Trump went after Harvard and other elitist colleges that impose quotas on the number  of Asian-American students they allow. For decades, colleges have required Asian-Americans to have perfect scores on college admissions tests, while favored minorities such as black people and Hispanics got in with mediocre scores. Now colleges are abandoning admissions tests altogether. Too racist.

While the liberal judge dismissed the case against Harvard, the message was sent.

Michael Graham of the Boston Herald reported last October, "Harvard’s actually admitting a record number of Asian students of late (funny how a lawsuit will do that.) But they’re also turning away a disproportionate number of qualified Asian students while admitting their less academically successful competitors, based solely on skin color.

"Don’t believe me? Don’t take my word for it. Harvard’s own internal investigation found that 'demographic factors' alone reduced the share of admitted Asian Americans by 30% while increasing the proportion of Hispanic admissions by 140% and blacks by a jaw-dropping 370%.

"The Harvard system hailed by Leung and her fellow liberals uses a “holistic” analysis to overcome the fact that Asian American students outperform their peers. As Ilya Shapiro of the libertarian CATO Institute wrote in the Wall Street Journal, 'that’s what Harvard did when it devised this method to cap the number of Jews it admitted in the 1920s and ’30s.' "

Ah, the Jewish quota. Who in the hell would reject Richard Feynman? 

Columbia.

Its loss. He went MIT, as did high school classmate Burton Richter. Another classmate, Baruch Samuel Blumberg, went to Union College. All three won Nobel prizes. Blumberg did attend Columbia's medical school upon graduation from Union.

Harvard will argue that it has plenty of Asian students and professors. This is true. Harvard and other Ivy League colleges roll out the red carpet for Red China. Foreign students pay top dollar to attend.

But Asian-Americans?

Fuggedaboutit.

Being called names is always bad.

Being rejected by Harvard after getting straight A's and acing the admissions test (and folks, I never came within a mile of that) is life-changing.

From 1933 to 1963, City University of New York graduated 13 future Nobel laureates -- 12 Jews and an Irishman.

Asian-Americans need to find a CUNY of their own.

And they need to keep suing Harvard and other universities that discriminate against them.

  1. As to the "hate crime" aspect. We've always known that it is a canard. An attempt by the left to irritate societal mores. Forget about it. Hate can't be defined in a rigorous way. Maybe the spa killer had "a little bit of hate". Could that be something in a court? Of course not. Murder is murder, and we've got laws for that.

  2. CUNY at the time was tuition-free, allowing upwardly mobile students from poor immigrant families to receive a good higher education and advance in the sciences and professions. Among the alumni were my father, who earned an accounting degree and became a CPA, and an uncle earning a degree in mechanical engineering who became a senior engineer at NASA and helped put an American on the moon. As Lenny Bruce joked, "CCNY [City College] stands for Circumcised Citizens of New York."

    1. Tuition-free? or "Tuition donated freely"? Fund it through the endowment, not taxpayers.

  3. "She did not explain why the media wants to mislead all Americans." My take: Because they're DEMOCRATS, or in bed with them.

    1. For the most part, the RACISTS in America are the self-righteous arrogant ignorant Liberals. In my view the are As^holes on Parade.

      They are so protected by their Left-Wing Fake News Media and their reality-deniers in the Democrat and RINO Parties that they never consider and recognize their obvious LIBERAL PRIVILEGE.

  5. One Thursday night I was walking across campus drunk and stopped at the library to use the restroom. Curious to see who was using the library on a party night I looked in and it was packed with Asian students. Maybe they succeed because they work harder? No that can’t be it.

  6. There is more to the Richard Feynman story. He graduated MIT and applied to Princeton for graduate studies in astrophysics. They denied him admission due to a D in a non-science course. His advisor had to make a few calls .

  8. One hope for the USA is that the Average Asian-American, as compared to the Average Black-American, has a greater grasp of reality and of what the Elite are trying to accomplish, and won’t tolerate as easily being bought off by being pandered to non-stop.

    We have seen that President Donald John Trump — unlike the Elitist Snob Sphincters like the Bush Family, the McCain Family, Kasich, Romney (the French Putz - C'est Moi) — successfully increased his support among African-American Men.

    American-American Females is another story, Apparently they identify to very closely with the so-called “Georgian BigFoot” who successfully imported third-world Banana Republican Election practices to the State of Georgia (with a Big Assist from the State’s worthless RINO political establishment) and is attempting to spread these corrupt election practices throughout the USA.

  9. It's amazing how Universities will roll out the "Red" carpet for Chinese communists, but limit Asian-Americans to some farcical quota. I understand the need to bring in students that are more than just power-test-takers, have leadership skills, a vision for their life's work, etc. and I'm glad places like Harvard take that into consideration but let's get real about allowing communists take places that belong to Americans, particularly Asian-Americans.

    1. 350,000 Red Chinese students/spies paying full boat is more important than American Asians entering prestigious colleges.

  14. The revolutionaries are turning the majority population into more a dangerous enemy. The Only Asian story is directed against that majority population and as an example of how dangerous they are. Soon the woke military will be used against this dangerous population. The overthrow of the Republic is the goal.

  16. Decades ago a future Congressman wrote a book, "Harvard Hates America." That was a typical conservative lie - Harvard hates white America. Downplaying the genocidal racism the leftist establishment has for whites is what conservative gatekeepers are paid for. This evil swindle is why conservatism has completely failed.
