Conservative activist Ned Ryun and billionaire venture capitalist Peter Thiel, a Republican who co-founded PayPal with Elon Musk, have lambasted Lamon as a hypocrite and a turncoat "RINO RIAO," a Republican In Name Actions Only.

This ain't nuthun' new, folks. Literally, we passed The Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882. Let's not even get into what American citizens faced during the Internment. Or what South East Asians STILL face today. Heck, even US citizens from Hawaii and Guam.  Because a lot of bigots can't tell the difference.

And what's funny? Asians have been a success story, in entrepreneurship, education, and by having one of the lowest crime rates. White folks? Y'all are leading the curve for crimes committed. Asian Americans and Asian immigrants DO have their asshats, but in nowhere near the numbers, even by percentage of our population.

Yellow Peril is nothing new, because y'all fear the numbers of Asians, and what will happen economically when those numbers are coupled fully by industry. Already, you look to Asian shores for your bolt holes for cash and playgrounds, but just so long as we don't apparently do anything to rock the boat.

The retired energy executive and political newcomer is in a crowded field trying to secure the Republican nomination in the race to unseat incumbent Democrat Mark Kelly.

Republican. Wow, I'm shocked. No, I mean the opposite of that.

I'm torn, as apparently neither Elon Musk or Peter Thiel like the guy.
It's going to be tough trying to decide which one of there arseholes that I would rather read about getting painful terminal ass cancer first.

No, pretty sure it would still be Thiel.

"...invested in Chinese stem cell research"

"Republican views on stem cell research staunchly oppose research that uses tissue cells from aborted or miscarried fetuses."[from the cited article below]

Lol - this should go down well

I don't suppose anyone noticed this kind of thing about GOP politicians before. It's like we've been caught off guard.

America was built by white supremacist assholes. It's our original sin, and the one we STILL refuse to properly address. We still permit farking slavery, for farks sake, as long as it's in our prisons (which are, of course, massively overfilled, disproportionately by POC; neither is a coincidence) or our corporations are benefiting from it overseas.

That idea needs to farking die, along with the idea that individual rights do not come with societal responsibilities.

They also benefit immensely from the combination of selection and the Model Minoeity scam.

Which isn't to say the Schrutes don't throw Asians under the bus readily and reflexively;  but co.ing in with wealth at all, and not being literally seen as livestock, kinda gives an edge.

Conservatives have hated Mexican migrants since before NAFTA. That didn't stop them from profiting from their exploitation.

Not only is he doing business in Jyna, but he's also trying to make money out of renewable energy? They're going to give him a cross, a nail, and a hammer then tell him to crucify himself.

I hope Mark Kelly channels Buzz Aldren and cold cocks the guy then Gabby Giffords kicks him while he's down.

Why can't we get our mobile traffic numbers up? Visitors bounce off the site once and never come back.

Guilermo, add more modal pop ups to the site. See if we can fit one for an email newsletter sign up, that'll rake'em in.

I know for a fact he bought a lot of panels from China.  I know this is trust me bro territory, but I am not going to reveal identifying details.  Let's just say I worked for a financial partner of his.  I mean it wasn't a secret? I figured the receipts would be procured eventually, and the customs reports seem pretty receipty.  In fact, we had an underwriting call with his co to have them walk us through how depcom would navigate the strict tariffs imposed on Chinese goods, as it was no secret they relied heavily on these panels from china.

Second, he made a pretty penny when he sold to Koch, but no where near $1B.  I've heard about a tenth of that number, with a fair amount of fingers in the equity pie - founding employees, private capital, etc.  I'm guessing he cleared $50M.  Absolutely nothing to sneeze at, but if he dumps every penny into this campaign, that would be sad.
Politics aside, he worked very, very hard to build this company.  The stuff he says about giving to charity and hiring vets is all true.  Every community in which they developed a project, they would contribute a meaningful chunk of profits to local community needs like food banks, schools, etc.

He really is very charismatic in person, which hasn't translated to this campaign at all.
