Posted on 07/10/2014 6:53:02 PM PDT by TigerClaws
Liberal Fox News co-host Bob Beckels use of the word Chinamen when discussing the national security threat China poses to the United States apparently caused such a stir at the Huffington Post that an office-wide gasp occurred.
Huffington Post senior political reporter Amanda Terkel and intern David McCabe both took to Twitter to talk about the Chinamen debacle.

It’s racist to say Chinamen - who knew?
Imagine the orgasm these two idiots would have had on TV if Beckel had said “Communist Chinese” or “Red Chinese”.
Clean-up in Studio 3!
Toady Beckel made an obscene gesture at the camera and said “F China!”
He is a hateful excuse for a human being.
Yep, it’s racist to say Chinaman.
It’s also racist to say Oriental.
The politically correct term is Asian.
Beckel is old school. LOL
I found that out about Oriental a few years ago.
The problem is “Asian” isn’t specific enough. It’d include Indians.
Oriental was a perfectly fine word for... those from the Orient.
It’s interesting the ‘moving target’ of the PC police. Negro was preferred by black folks. Then black. Then African-American. I’m sure A-A will be offensive to blacks in about 20 years.
so does this mean “Chinese-Food” will eventually be as racist as Redskin Potatoes?
I’ve heard Orientals use the word Oriental.
chinaman isn’t a racist term.
“chink” referring to a person, not a gouge out of armor, is a racialy-charged term.
How about Rush’s Chicoms?
So Bob doesn’t have a “Chinaman’s Chance” of writing for free over at HuffandBlow?
didn’t Bill Maher say a few more/and much more graphic/genital related statements over the last 6 or so years?yet not one peep from Liberals?
That goes to show you that some people just hear/read/interpret what they want to hear/read/interpret.
I wonder if "dam" is allowed, referring to the female horse or a water barrier....:o)
My dad named our Siamese cat “Chino” because that means “Chinaman” in Spanish. Our cat didn’t mind at all...”Call me anything ya want, just don’t call me late for dinner.”
No, according to the Chinese Citizens League, ‘chinaman’ is a slur.
Dutch are okay with Dutchman though.
Each group apparently gets to figure out what offends them for PC rules. Unless it’s white people, and nobody gives a flip about those crackers.
Beckel channeling his inner Walter Sobchak.
Giving China a middle finger salute is.far more offensive than saying Chinamen, but me not being Asian, perhaps I can never know how they feel about it.
i suppose i should clarify it isn’t racist if the person is actually a guy from china. :-)
otherwise cue david bowie and “china girl” if she’s a gal from china.
I think Chinaman is a derogative term that can be considered racist. I do think that’s fair enough.
Oriental was ginned up as a racist term a few decades ago by the PC brigade, but it isn’t racist or derogatory and shouldn’t be seen as such.
Oriental is to my mind a practical descriptive term that is more specific to a subset of Asians in contrast to the very broad Asian alone.
THe “politically correct term is “ MASTER!
i suppose you could just say “Hey china!”
and if a group, china 1, china 2,...
Leftists claim it is racist to say Chinamen. But they never say its racist to say Englishman or Frenchman. The term Asian tells you nothing. Arabs are Asians as are Israelis, Afghans, Indians and many others. The term Orientals distinguishes Orientals from other Asians.
The country that put a man on the moon now goes into hysterics at a word.
“Oriental is to my mind a practical descriptive term that is more specific to a subset of Asians in contrast to the very broad Asian alone.”
I agree,but I have an Asian daughter in law who would not agree.
It makes no sense to me.
He should be forced to resign. They made the rules, not us.
No, neither do I.
Maybe members of the Chinese Citizens League are ashamed to be Chinese but Dutchmen, Englishmen, Frenchmen, etc are proud of their heritage.
Let’s face the facts: Beckel is a fat, stinking racist slob. ;-)
Also, Dude, “Chinaman” is not the preferred nomenclature.
I was watching it, and the way he said it, practically foaming at the mouth, and then doing the arm thing, it was not a neutral descriptive term.
I gasped, too, and said aloud, “Wow, you’ve stepped it in it now.”
Caused mayhem in CA. The CHP had to figure out a new term for DWO. That is "Driving While Oriental." Talk to an insurance man.
Hey, Careful Man! There’s A Beverage Here!
Thought the same thing lol, he’s a throwback liberal.
“Beckel is old school. LOL”
I’m old,old school.
Chinaman would have been considered a polite term when I grew up in the 30s and 40s.
Your description is accurate.
Beckel had the most vile look on his face.
Maybe he fell off the wagon again?
(Though for accuracy, in the scene you show he is talking about what he thinks is a Pomeranian.)
Beckel’s an ass, but I find it ridiculous that of all the derogatory, demeaning and disgusting things he has said, someone found “Chinamen” over the top?
She must be American, not Asian.
The politically correct term is Asian.
Assuming you weren’t being sarcastic....
Like saying someone is Caucasian, the term Asian doe not identify the country referred to.
Where were all these PC warriors when Senator Byrd (D-KKK) used the “Mother Of All Racial Slurs” twice on Fox News Sunday?
Could it be that Byrd got special consideration because he was a powerful member of the Amerikan House of Lords, and Beckel is just a low-level flack?
Ive heard Orientals use the word Oriental
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
It is okay as long as it is used as ‘banter’ amongst Orientals.
However, if the NFL (after receiving a complaint from an Oriental that Occidentals were using the term derogatorily), banned the use of the word in and around any NFL Facility.
Which prompted the aforementioned Orientals to sue, saying THEY were being discriminated against using a word comfortable to them and the NFL banning it meant the Orientals were being ‘victimized’.
I seem to remember Sister Mary ______ telling us that the term Oriental was pertaining to the East (Asia) and Occidental was pertaining to the West (all NOT Asia I guess).
Of course She also told us Hawaii and Alaska were territories and an area in SE Asia was known as Burma and Indochina and, at the time French Indochina was in the news.
Guess she was wrong there also....
I did not see that, but that would endear him to me. I know he hates China.
He could have pissed them off by using the term “Mongoloid” to use the old classification.
