Andrew Sullivan has caused a libtard outrage fest with this from his article in the current New York:

Do you know the real reason Dr. Dao was so brutally tackled and thrown off that United flight? It was all about white supremacy. I mean, what isn’t these days? That idea is from the New Republic. Yes, the cops “seemed” to be African-American, as the author concedes, so the white-versus-minority paradigm is a little off. Yes, this has happened before to many people with no discernible racial or gender pattern. Yes, there is an obvious alternative explanation: The seats from which passengers were forcibly removed were randomly assigned. New York published a similar piece, which argued that the incident was just another example of Trump’s border-and-immigration-enforcement policies toward suspected illegal immigrants of color. That no federal cops were involved and there is no actual evidence at all of police harassment of Asian-Americans is irrelevant — it’s all racism, all the time, everywhere in everything.

It’s easy to mock this reductionism, I know, but it reflects something a little deeper. Asian-Americans, like Jews, are indeed a problem for the “social-justice” brigade. I mean, how on earth have both ethnic groups done so well in such a profoundly racist society? How have bigoted white people allowed these minorities to do so well — even to the point of earning more, on average, than whites? Asian-Americans, for example, have been subject to some of the most brutal oppression, racial hatred, and open discrimination over the years. In the late 19th century, as most worked in hard labor, they were subject to lynchings and violence across the American West and laws that prohibited their employment. They were banned from immigrating to the U.S. in 1924. Japanese-American citizens were forced into internment camps during the Second World War, and subjected to hideous, racist propaganda after Pearl Harbor. Yet, today, Asian-Americans are among the most prosperous, well-educated, and successful ethnic groups in America. What gives? It couldn’t possibly be that they maintained solid two-parent family structures, had social networks that looked after one another, placed enormous emphasis on education and hard work, and thereby turned false, negative stereotypes into true, positive ones, could it? It couldn’t be that all whites are not racists or that the American dream still lives?

Many, many pundits are piling on to remind everyone that the problems in the African-American community and of blacks everywhere else in the world in general are due to slavery.

Washington Post reporter Jeff Guo went on a Tweet blizzard with every Angry Asian cliche imaginable: the Model Minority Myth is racist, Asians are brutally discriminated against Chinese weren’t even allowed in for a period, Asians hate American food.

As Steve Sailer put it: The only thing worse for nonwhites than having to live in a country built by whites is not being allowed to immigrate to a country built by whites.

The Chinese in China are following this story too and they think it is due to anti-Chinese bigotry in the USA as well.

What a barbaric society. Like a feeding frenzy.

Wow, good for Sullivan.

Any effort to expose the cowardly, hypocritical, dishonest, destructive nature of PC/Identity Politics is worthy of praise from those who are truly hoping for the best for this country.
