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.
