Asians have taken over today’s news cycle!
Apparently some report came out that says Asians are the number one class of immigrants at the moment. Every single news source has jumped on this and although I really do not have time for a long post, I just wanted to record my thoughts on the matter and will get straight to my points without being too wordy.
First let us contrast the opening paragraph of two different news sources.
1. Wall Street Journal
– Asians are the fastest-growing, most educated and highest-earning population in the U.S., according to a new report that paints the majority-immigrant group as a boon to an economy that has come to rely increasingly on skilled workers.
My subconscious is telling me that Asians are positive for the economy!
2. Fox News
– For the first time, the influx of Asians moving to the U.S. has surpassed that of Hispanics, reflecting a slowdown in illegal immigration while American employers increase their demand for high-skilled workers.
My subconscious is telling me, HEY ARE THESE ASIANS ILLEGALS? You know what two words the Tea Party heard in this paragraph? Yep, the ones in bold.
Notice how the Wall Street Journal reflected on the positive while Fox News true to form managed to put the word illegals and possibly something negative in that opening paragraph? Very sneaky of our friends at the ‘fair and balanced’ news organization.
Maybe it is just me, but for some reason I have the nagging suspicion that those so adamantly against “Illegal Immigration” are actually against immigrants overall.
I try to talk myself out of it but the thought just latches on to me and refuses to let go.
So, I try to prove myself wrong as I am sure there will be many positive comments on the FB Wall Street Journal page right???
First, let me post the comments (from Asians) that made me laugh.
– I guess I’m not living up to my potential
– What about East Indians?? or are they all in the hospitals?
– I am Asian, I need to get back to study now
– This is now a scientifically proven fact that eating rice can help your income rise faster and higher.
Unfortunately, in every comment section ever opened to the public there is a 95% chance that the comments will become infinitely more stupid until critical mass is hit and the stupidity cannot be stopped. I mean, it always works in that direction, as I have never seen a comment section become infinitely more intelligent,,,, not ever. It must be a law of physics; once stupidity is set in motion, it cannot be stopped.
It is similar to throwing a stone in the lake. All you need is one really stupid comment and it will ripple and ripple and ripple through the entire thread. Sigh…
It was no different with the WSJ comment section. Let’s get to a few that REALLY MADE ME LAUGH in a sad sort of way.
Mr. X – Many asians, ie Chinese, Indians, Koreans, are people of self control, and so, accomplishment. If it were my choice, I would welcome them and slam the door on most of our immigrant groups.
– Thank you Mr. X for your infinite wisdom and understanding of the Chinese, Indians and Koreans. Interesting choice though as I would have said the Japanese have the most self control but they weren’t even mentioned!
I would challenge him to name the other “immigrant” groups to which he would like to “slam the door.” I bet you he is referring to Mexicans as those “others” and that he got his idea of Asians from the movie Karate Kid or something. Just my thought.
But as I said, it only takes one stupid comment to start the chain reaction of idiocy. There were plenty of responses but the following is my favorite.
Ms. Y: Koreans=self control? Try again! You haven’t seen an asian at the sketchy casinos at Lake Tahoe? Barona? Vegas? Have you heard of Tiger Mom? Please. Self control is for other people. You act like Asians are perfect. Asians got lucky that influential people cared enough about them to push priorities in the right places (wisdom, elders, face, etc.).
Believe it or not I am heading to Lake Tahoe this weekend and am going to keep my eye out for “an asian at the sketchy casinos.” Only problem is I am not sure which casinos would be considered “sketchy” in Tahoe. Tahoe is actually very small/clean and I don’t think I would consider any of them “sketchy.” Maybe I’ll ask Siri to recommend a sketchy casino while I’m there and should I indeed find myself in one I sure as hell am going to look for “an asian.”
But seriously, I’m impressed that this person even knows how to use a computer. (It should be taken away)
Asians got lucky that influential people cared enough about them to push priorities in the right places (wisdom, elders, face, etc.).
Who the hell are the ‘influential’ people she is talking about here? Mao perhaps? Confucius? I would really like to know who these grand influencers of The Asian people are! Also, I have absolutely no idea what she means by “face.” I can’t even make a joke or be sarcastic about it, I simply have no idea what she means!
Ahhhh, it is just too silly and a waste of time to pick out stupid comments and poke fun.
I guess I was just interested that every single news source picked up this story and I knew that the undercurrent (Tea Party, Republicans) of racism since Obama was elected would certainly flare up at such a report.
It is going to be more difficult to focus on “illegal immigration” aka Mexicans when Asians are the new threat to AMURICA!
Besides, it was also just announced that Marco Rubio is being considered by Romney for Vice President! Well doesn’t that beat all!!! How can the Tea Party continue to unleash venom against ‘them latinos’ when their own party is considering one for a top post? Yes yes, the problem of illegal immigration is mostly Mexican but let us not forget Elian Gonzales so quickly people! How can we know for certain that Marco Rubio wasn’t born in CUBA??? I DEMAND to see his birth certificate!
Alright, I’ve gone off the rails. I need to get back on track, just like Amurica.
Given the nature of this report I find it alarming that Asians are taking over the country.
Somethin’ just must be done.
