Now that is funny

Cubans?

Even the Cubans voted for Obama this time around.

From what the talking heads tell me, it was 3rd generation Cubans that went for Obama. I guess the older Cubans are dying off. I hold out hope that normalized relations with Cuba are in the near future.

Zombie Castro has witnessed 14 USA elections during his dictatorship. . 11 USA presidents have had to delay relations while the man who allowed Russian/Soviet nukes to be placed 90 miles from Florida is still alive.

The missiles have been gone for over half a century. Time to give it up. The Chinese backed the Vietcong, and we're best buds now.

Just reporting the facts, not right or wrong. Beyond thats, Vietnam was our ally. We were trying to protect South Vietnam from communism.

That's one viewpoint. I could counter we were cleaning up the mess left by French Colonization after the French bailed.

That made no sense whatsoever.

President Raygun: swahnhennessy: If I were Asian I'd not want to be associated with Michelle Malkin, either.

There was some article a few years ago where she referred to her own parents as "anchor babies." I was physically revulsed. She is a horrible, horrible person.


Michelle Malkin is a Pacific Islander. Exactly which of the 7000 Phillipine Islands are on Asia?

This brings up a very good point "why do people immigrate to America? #1 i would like to believe is a better life my children, and the GOP model fails in this regard on so many levels!
Yes and yes.
What do the majority of illegal immigrants want? To earn money to provide for their family and provide for a better future.

Yeah, she's French. But she's been here practically since her birth, doesn't have any serious criminal record, and she's gainfully employed. So let's naturalize her.

Already knew everything in that article. Your reply still makes no sense to me. No one thinks we were in Vietnam to clean up the mess left by French colonization. Gulf of Tonkin was a decade after the French "bailed" (Read: were overwhelmingly defeated).

Could it be that many Asian-Americans came here because they found it unbearable to live under authoritarians who require the populace to deny reality?

Yep I agree with that logic, Immigrants totally risk life and limb to get to america because the poor and homeless have it so much better in the United states than where they come from.

As a Chinese-born naturalized American, I'm getting a big kick out of this.

As a group, we strongly value education and an acceptance of reality. A party that demeans the educated as having been "brainwashed" is outright offensive to me. A party that rejects scientific, evidence-based reality and math because it upsets their ideal worldview completely flabbergasts me.

As a group, we also strongly value a damn good deal. $2.50 of cuts for every $1 of new taxes? Damn, son. How do you pass up a deal like that?

I have other quibbles with the GOP, but I can at least respect to a degree (if disagree with) their views on the fundamental role of government, taxes, healthcare, and "social issues". The stuff above, though -- that just leaves me bamboozled. You have a shot of making me listen to you when you prove that you are willing to govern in reality.

Why? I know the history of Christian problems with homosexuality. One line in the Old Testament, and Paul trying not to get killed by taking the Roman Emperors' rule: "Don't be all gay all the time. Rome needs Romans" ,started by Caesar Augustus, to the extreme. Peter was executed because he preached "Let's never have sex", so Paul learned at least that much.

By "the mess" I assume you mean the Geneva Accords, and "clean up" refers to "convince Diem to ditch the referendum on reunification and stage his own sham election". That's some good cleaning up there, Lou.

Yes, well a hysterical over-reaction to other people's choice of political philosophy isn't quite the same thing as "cleaning up the mess that the French left behind". It doesn't quite have the same selfless ring to it. And in case you feel tempted to claim that "the mess" was the existence of the Viet Minh as an effective military and political force, I would just like to add that the US armed and supported the Viet Minh when they were fighting the Japanese occupation. Uncle Ho, was so grateful for the support that he copied his declaration of independence from the American one.

It's nice to hear you're anti-war. Just don't let yourself get suckered into any of the apologetic myths floating around.

If the US had any comprehension of what the real deal was in the region, they would have realized that Ho was looking for a superpower to align himself with because Vietnam doesn't trust the Chinese in the slightest. It's been a thousand years since the Chinese occupied Vietnam and they still don't trust the Chinese to not try it again. Ho aligned himself with the Soviets because he knew that a post-colonial Vietnam was vulnerable to the Chinese and since the US wasn't interested the Soviets were the other best option.

It's not an accident of history that Vietnam and the US finally normalized relations right after the breakup of the Soviet Union. It's because a Vietnam that's friends with the US is a Vietnam that's less likely to have to worry about China pulling any shenanigans.

RexTalionis: So, anyway, I was at the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association regional conference in Stamford in 2011, where the Honorable Denny Chin of the 2d Cir. Court of Appeals was the keynote speaker.

You know what really pissed off these most elite of the Asian-American elite? That the GOP took months to stonewall and filibuster Goodwin Liu, President Obama's nominee for the 9th Cir. Court of Appeals. That REALLY annoyed a lot of people.


The GOP alienated a wealthy group of upper class voters because they were minorities and liberal? I find that difficult to believe.

I find it more difficult to believe that there's an Asian-Pacific Bar Association chapter in Connecticut. It's on the wrong coast.

speckio: I think the real problem is the crazy far right Christians who seem to have influence over the GOP. Most asian religious beliefs do not have a problem with homosexuality or discrimination against other races, also I know plenty of Asian people who have a very strong Christian faith and they choose to follow the "do not judge others" or "choose not to force their beliefs down your throat" and they feel Christians radicals like the ones in the US are a threat to Christianity itself.


As a Catholic, Count me in as one of those people. I support a completely secular government since my faith is my faith. I don't impose on others and they don't impose on me.

Yeah, your 4,000 plus years of civilization don't count compared to our 2,000 plus years.

Well, to be fair, I don't think anyone's culture is superior to anyone else's - they're just different.
However, the GOP sure are experts are alienating people:
Columnist: "Why did Asian Americans vote 73-26 for Obama?"
His Readers: "Because they're barbarians who are here to destroy traditional Americans!"
This Asian: "Okay then, guess I'll vote for the party who doesn't actually hate my very existence."

OK, cultural comparisons aside, calling people from a longer term culture than ours, and with an ancient greek word (barbar) to boot, is at least amusing, if not ironic.

Fair enough. Ironic also.

I voted against Romney because he has round eyes and you cant trust the round eyes!


All joking aside I feel dirty typing that because some how i think that actually would fit into the GOP logic and way of thinking of how asians vote

The problem with the GOP will be that their "Asian Outreach" will treat Asians as a monolithic block and not an arbitrary label applied to a very diverse group of individuals,

no "jasmine rice" and maybe mention love of "brown rice" if they want a 2 for 1 to include the latino vote hopefully there will be no gaffe or scandal about only loving "white rice"

I posted this previously in another thread, but what the heck:

I live in Ohio. My parents are Korean, but I was made in America.

This lovely campaign flyer arrived in the mail on Election Day, and the day before as well.

Note the odd use of the term "reunification", which has special resonance for Koreans.

Then the "Mek-shi-cans are jumping the line ahead of you and your family!"

And the pandering to foreign students who are studying math, science, and engineering, because that's all the Asian brain is good for.

Best of all, the "free tuition at colleges in Massachusetts for good students" line, which obviously means that Romney wants to give my precious kimchi-scented snowflakes a free ride to Harvard, Yale, or MIT.

Here is side 2:

Meh, pretty boring "diversity" boilerplate at the top. But what's this at the bottom?

Oh Lordy, Mitt's looking somewhat more... pigmented... than usual. Yellow, even.

And squinty.

And grinning all bucktoothed.

OMG... MITT ROMNEY IS ASIAN... JUST LIKE ME!!!

shiat, if they were trying to depict Romney with stereotypical Asian features, why didn't they just go full retard:
