Outrage as US comedian mocks Asian Americans
news.yahoo.com ^ | 3/29/14 | unknown

Posted on 03/29/2014 6:23:24 AM PDT by armydawg505

Washington (AFP) - Social media erupted in outrage and counter-attacks Friday after US comedian Stephen Colbert used language that mocked Asian Americans in what was intended as an anti-racist jibe.

Colbert, who is liberal but parodies a blustery conservative on his late night talk show, took aim at the Washington Redskins football team whose name is considered offensive by many Native Americans.

Colbert mocked team owner Dan Snyder who has announced a fund to support Native Americans while rejecting calls to change the name.

Ha Ha Ha, I love it when liberals work hard to set traps for conservatives then fall into the traps trying to show how deep their white guilt is and how compassionate, diverse and understanding they are. Has there ever been a totally dumber group of folks than white, left wing liberals?

Don Imus was considered a conservative after his nappy headed ho joke. When they finally discovered he was a liberal, all the controversy ended.

Well, Washington Redskins is an offensive name. Dan Snyder really does need to change it.

May I suggest “The DC Redskins”?

He’ll get a hall pass because he fits the mold of a didiot to a “T”. Only when a conservative does something like this is there real heartfelt condemnation. Libs? Meh!

As much as I detest and despise Stephen Colbert and anything that he stands for, I too think the Asians in this country just need to get the hell over it.

If they’re upset over “ching chong ding dong” and the like, they should spend a couple of days in a bald white man’s shoes say, at a black or latino comedian’s show where they’ll hear every tame and vile epithet, innuendo and stereotype known to man. And these guys don’t get to complain and be ‘outraged and upset’.

I’d suggest a different name. However, the precursor word to it would be more appropriate for a golf game. :o)

Those with slanted eyes really need to grow a pair. Having been called several ethnic slurs myself (often for ethnic groups that I am not a part of, but mistaken for), I just shrug it off and flip them the bird.

I found humor in Colbert at first, however, he almost exclusively targeted Republicans and Conservatives. His show became tiresome and boring. Haven’t watched it in 6-7 years.

An inability to face reality. An assumption that right and wrong are relative concepts. It’s a learning disability, a product of seeing yourself as the center of the universe.

The hilarity of this is that there is only *one* ethnic group that is truly hypersensitive about racial humor, but liberals like to pretend that it is all groups.

This is especially true about “Asians”, a word that means almost nothing, as well as “Hispanics”, another word that means almost nothing. Even “Native Americans” are so diverse that lumping them together for almost anything makes little sense.

Asians have just as much right to feel indignation and express outrage as anyone else in this country.

For years, Asians have just silently "taken it" as they are negatively stereotyped, denied admissions to prestigious universities, and publicly ridiculed.

Perhaps it is time a few more of them spoke up.

Asians don't want "special" treatment, they just want a little r-e-s-p-e-c-t. Is that too much to ask, or to give?

Talk about double standards. Here's a current example:

Asian legislator sells guns to drug dealers. Immediate arrest!

Attorney General Eric Holder sells guns to drug dealers in Mexico using all the government resources at his disposal; he thumbs his nose at law-abiding citizens, keeps his position and continues put Americans in danger with his hypocritical words and actions.

Why not? Bald white guys have just as much right to speak out about racial stereotypes as anyone else.

Perhaps they should. That might level the playing field and expose the Left as the hypocrites they really are.

Why should one (or two) racial groups be treated as a "protected class" in a country that professes to see all people as equals?

Gran Torino was a good example of how “racist” terms weren’t necessarily a show of disrespect. Walt spoke to his friends the same way I talk to my cousin’s husband (The wop in the woodpile).

All I know is that I've seen Carlos Mencia, George Lopez, and almost ANY black comedian absolutely denigrate, ridicule and stereotype the common white man RELENTLESSLY. They are the acceptable PC targets.

The ‘audience’ which includes blacks and latinos laughs hysterically, and the whites in the audience are socially required to laugh to show they are not racist. This is because ‘society’ - Obama/Democrat/Liberal/Media political correctness dictate they can say NOTHING precisely because they are BORN racist and have no say in the matter because they are white. Pathetic duplicity and hypocrisy at its worst.

And, it is this allowance for hypocrisy that prompts their young to focus on and target unsuspecting whites as the bad fall-guy for all their problems. In the end, we have the Knockout Game, black teenager feral mobs and dozens of other manifestations. And in that same end, I have a 45 ACP 1911 with backup magazines with me at all times.
