Australia is copying Donald Trump's wave of Chinese hate propaganda which misses the mark and affects all Asians.

How long before Asian protection mobs and vigilante groups emerge?

Even Polanimal denizens have been sucked under by the bow-wave of Chinese hate propaganda.

Most white Australians would not know the difference between a Chinese and a Rohingya. But they know hate and swallow dollops of hate propaganda.

Asians of all nationalities are endangered by ScoMo and the white-supremacist hate propagandists.

'A historic surge': Anti-Asian American hate incidents continue to skyrocket despite public awareness campaign
N'dea Yancey-Bragg
USA TODAY

Violence against Asian Americans and Asians has grown despite increased national attention and political action against anti-Asian hate, experts said.

There was a more than 164% increase in anti-Asian hate crime reports to police in the first quarter of 2021 in 16 major cities and jurisdictions compared with last year, according to a report from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.

More than 6,600 hate incidents have been reported in the year after the pandemic began in the United States, Stop AAPI Hate announced this week. More than a third of those incidents were reported this March alone, according to the organization founded last year in response to increased targeting of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders during the pandemic.

The new data comes afterseveral high-profile attacks. A man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly stabbing two Asian women in an unprovoked attack in downtown San Francisco. Over the weekend, two Asian women were attacked in New York City by a woman who demanded they remove their masks, then struck one of them in the head with a hammer, according to police.

The assaults are the latest in a series of brutal crimes against Asians and Asian Americans, including the fatal shootings in March of eight people in Atlanta, that left six women of Asian descent dead.

'Stop killing us':Attacks on Asian Americans highlight rise in hate incidents amid COVID-19

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., center, is joined by U.S. Rep. Grace Meng, D-N.Y., third from left, at a news conference to discuss an Asian-American hate crime bill, Monday, April 19, 2021, in New York.
"It's not going to be likely to decrease any time soon unless we are very vigilant about it," said Van Tran, an associate professor of sociology who studies the experience of Asian Americans at the Graduate Center at the City University of New York. "We have yet to create and engender institutional change and behavioral change at the largest scale."

Russell Jeung, co-founder of Stop AAPI Hate, said it's hard to tell from his data whether hate incidents are occurring at a higher rate or if the community is reporting more incidents because of increased awareness and media attention.

"I think the racism is pretty deeply felt and anger directed towards Asians is still pretty high," he said.

Despite federal action, rise is 'accelerated and sustained'
The uptick in anti-Asian violence was first reported in March 2020 as COVID-19 began spreading across the nation and some politicians, including President Donald Trump, blamed China for the pandemic.

Since then, lawmakers have advanced legislation, police departments have created task forces and hotlines, and community members have organized demonstrations and neighborhood watch programs.

Last month, the Senate passed legislation aimed at fighting hate crimes against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders with overwhelming bipartisan support.

If the House passes the law, it would be a "very strong first step," but more structural changes are needed to eradicate the racist attitudes underlying these crimes, Tran said. He noted there are already hate crime laws that need stronger enforcement.

President Joe Biden signed an executive action condemning racism and intolerance against Asian Americans and has repeatedly expressed concern about the rise in violence.

Biden’s change in tone from the previous administration “probably” helped, but political rhetoric is not enough to quash the rise, according to Brian Levin, author of the CSUSB report and a professor of criminal justice.

“Even with President Biden and Congress making admirable efforts, there’s still a subculture that is vulnerable to either a shallow level of prejudice or a very deep level of prejudice,” he said. “Even people with low, shallow prejudices can act violently based on situational factors.”

Levin, who has tracked hate incidents for nearly 30 years, said the rise in anti-Asian hate crime reports may get worse as COVID-19 restrictions lift.

“We had a 146% increase in 2020, and that is now being accelerated and sustained,” he said. “This is a historic surge and it requires immediate action by civic leaders, educators and policymakers and law enforcement particularly in the area of outreach.”

Better data needed to combat 'massive underreporting'
Although solving the issue requires a "whole society" approach, Levin said, the "most urgent" issues lie with law enforcement. Although part of the increase he's observed may be due to increased reporting, there is “massive underreporting” of hate incidents. Better data is needed to evaluate the scope of the problem.

Fewer than half of the victims of a hate crime report it to the police, according to data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

Levin said some places such as New York City, which created an Asian Hate Crimes Task Force, do a good job of counting these crimes; in other places, they fall through the cracks. He pointed to Alabama, which was the only state to report zero hate crimes in 2019. ...

Fear becomes a constant companion for Asian-Australians as racist attacks surge


Community leaders here are warning racism here towards Asians is growing unchecked.


One woman is spat on. Another punched in the face. A group of international students are told they’re going to be killed as they’re walking home.
These are examples of attacks the Asian-Australian community has faced since the pandemic started, part of a surge of racially motivated violence that is increasing across the country.
Now, as Asian-Americans demand change after eight women were shot on Thursday, community leaders in Australia say similar racist sentiments are rippling throughout the country.

“Racism towards Asian-Australians is not new in Australia, it has been deeply rooted in our society for decades,” NSW Convener of the Asian Australian Alliance Thomson Ch’ng told The New Daily.
Since the pandemic started the alliance has kept a database of racist incidents against Asian Australians – at one point they were getting a dozen a day.

“What this pandemic has done, is amplified this toxic element of our society,” Mr Ch’ng said.
“The database was launched last year in April, and up until now we have received more than 500 reports.”

But the database doesn’t reflect how widespread the issue is, as it based on self-reporting.
A landmark survey from the Lowy Institute recently revealed nearly one in five Chinese Australians have been physically threatened or attacked in the past year because of their heritage. ...

Everyone does have the right to their opinion. But Whites don't have to bear the consequences of their opinions(White Privilege), as the dominant race. What happened when Whites had the opinion that all Japanese were a threat to them during WWII? Clearly, the opinions and rights of Japanese Americans was certainly NOT equal, or even mattered! Or, when Black American had a different opinion on who to vote for in a southern election? Or, when minorities wanted union representation, in White dominated industries? What role did segregation play in being a Black or Chinese American, and having an equal opinion as an equal American? How about the opinions of Antifa, about having White nationalism and White superiority being shoved down their throats, as White-only American patriotism?


If the Australian government says that the Chinese people started this pandemic, then the White Australian sheep will simply demonize all Chinese Australians. They somehow rationalize, that all Chinese here in Australia are somehow responsible for this pandemic, and should be blamed. When the Australian government says that all New Zealand Australians are just bludgers, then they too are demonized as lazy dole bludgers, and are over-scrutinized/stigmatized at the dole office.

There are so many examples of how Whites demonize, stereotype, stigmatize, subjugate, and openly demean other races. If anyone thinks that Whites will willingly accepts any opinions that would challenge/threaten their White Privilege and Conservatism, then they're naivety is surpassed only by their ignorance and hypocrisy. IMHO

I think you’re perceptions are from the past.

Ironically, in this present era, it is conservatives who judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. And it is liberals who judge people by the color of their skin, not the content of their character. The examples of that are endless.

Anyone who works hard to be successful in this country can be successful and respected. Again, there are endless examples.

It's still growing. There is no substance in the 'purported' attempts to stop the hate.

Donald Trump created the hate by trying to divert attention from his collaboration with Russia by blaming the Chinese for America's non-competitiveness and blaming China for Covid-19.

"Violence against Asian Americans and Asians has grown despite increased national attention and political action against anti-Asian hate, experts said."

'A historic surge': Anti-Asian American hate incidents continue to skyrocket despite public awareness campaign

Hateful mass shootings terrorize the USA: Why aren't more shooters charged with hate crimes or terrorism?

“Even with President Biden and Congress making admirable efforts, there’s still a subculture that is vulnerable to either a shallow level of prejudice or a very deep level of prejudice,” he said. “Even people with low, shallow prejudices can act violently based on situational factors.”

Levin, who has tracked hate incidents for nearly 30 years, said the rise in anti-Asian hate crime reports may get worse as COVID-19 restrictions lift.

Hate crimes against Asian Americans are on the rise: Here's what activists, lawmakers and police are doing to stop the violence

"We really have to have concrete data collection," he said. "If we’re getting delays – the FBI data comes out in mid-November – that’s not going to help the communities that are experiencing this now."

The FBI collects national hate crime data, but data for 2020 and 2021 has not been released. In 2019, 216 anti-Asian hate crimes were reported, according to the latest data available.

Levin suggested tying federal funding to data collection. He pointed to a bill in California that would create a permanent commission tasked with creating a yearly comprehensive accounting of hate crime activity statewide and offering recommendations as a possible model.

He said police departments must do a better job of determining when a crime is a hate crime and suggested departments implement a two-tier review system that includes a community liaison or outside board.

'Culturally competent resources' needed for victims
More needs to be done to educate the community about how to report hate incidents – particularly if they don't rise to the level of a crime – and to connect victims with support resources, said Evangeline Chan, a co-chair of AAPI Affinity Group at Safe Horizon, which provides support to crime victims.

Chan, like many experts, said there may be cultural or language barriers that prevent Asians and Asian Americans from reporting incidents.

She said in New York City, where her organization is based, many community members don't know they can report violations civilly to the NYC Commission on Human Rights or access mental and physical health resources even if they decide not to report.

“What we would like to see is really a little bit more of education, outreach and awareness centered around the resources that already are available," Chan said.

Chan's organization places victim advocates at police precincts in New York to offer resources in a variety of languages. Because of the pandemic, it lost several of these advocates and some government funding was affected.

"All of this takes funding," she said. "It is really important that there are culturally competent resources invested into dealing with and addressing this issue."

Stopping Asian hate through education and training
One of the many ways to prevent these kinds of crimes is education and "understanding the root causes of racism," Chan said.

"Violence against AAPI-identifying individuals is really nothing new," she said. "It's been going on way before the pandemic, and it's deeply rooted in this nation’s history."

Part of that education should include teaching students in K-12 and at the college level about the "integral role" of Asian Americans in American history, said Anne Cheng, a professor at Princeton University in New Jersey whose work focuses on race, gender and literature.

"We are part of this country," Cheng said. "We are part of its history. We have contributed from the 19th century onward."

'Harsh reality': Asian leaders urge US to stop AAPI violence as citizens reexamine pro-American views

Stop Asian hate, Stop Black hate, stop all hate: Many Americans call for unity against racism

Leaders of Stop AAPI Hate advocated for increasing ethnic studies education to prevent crimes, implementing community-based violence protection programs and expanding civil rights protections to end harassment in business.

"We want to get at the long-term solution to the racism, there's no quick fixes," said Jeung, the group's co-founder and a professor of Asian American Studies at San Francisco State University. "We want to stop the cycle of violence, and we can do that with restorative justice models where we hold perpetrators accountable but we don’t necessarily criminalize them."

Chan suggested more bystander training to help residents and businesses learn what to do if they witness a crime.

She said it was "really disappointing" to see how many high-profile attacks took place in broad daylight, pointing out the two New York City doormen who failed to help an Asian American woman who was brutally attacked last month.

"We certainly don't advocate for anybody to put themselves in harm's way," she said. "We expect community members, storefront owners to at least step in or call for help."

Wealth or respect of associates won't protect even successful people of minorities from the howling mobs progressive "woke" white liberals and the Democratic Party created.

In 2020, the old segregationist Joe Biden told a black man that if he didn't vote for him, "you ain't black."

In Seattle, the black female police chief, a highly popular and highly respected 30+ year veteran of the Seattle Police Dept, was disrespected by the progressive liberal white City Council and liberal white Mayor to a point where she resigned.

In Texas, the white liberal Democratic Chairperson of the Lamar County Democratic Party called Sen. Tim Scott, who is black, an "oreo".

In Portland, a white, anti-police protester called a black Portland Police Bureau officer the n-word.

And in Seattle, progressive white "Woke Karen" exercised her white privilege by lecturing black police officers.

An open letter from Sen. Tim Scott ...

Dear Woke Corporate America,

I hope you are all having fun with your virtue signaling. I hope you are enjoying trying to one-up each other and showing how woke you can be, all the while believing that you are more sophisticated and morally superior to the hard-working people of this country.

You must have loved the accolades from your elitist, left-wing peers when you took the MLB All-Star Game from Georgia. What a fun day for you on Twitter. Congratulations.

Never mind that you have destroyed working people’s jobs and hurt people who haven’t worked since COVID-19 took a member of their family or destroyed their small business.

You get texts from your elitist friends praising you for your courageous stand when you support "mostly peaceful" movements that loot small businesses, set fire to government buildings, and take the lives of innocent people.

You think that makes you morally superior to the people in what you call "flyover country."

But you are lying. You are lying to Americans, lying to each other, and lying to yourselves. You know that everything you have said about the election reforms in Georgia being racist is a lie. 

You know that the Georgia law actually expands early voting and does nothing to suppress or curtail the voting rights of anyone. And yes, the Georgia law requires an ID to vote. Well, so does Delta Airlines, and so does Major League Baseball in order to pick up tickets.

It’s not that you have twisted the truth; you have rejected the truth. Worse, you do not care what is true.

You give the woke mob concession after concession, hoping to buy time to rake in more cash under your watch. You feed the rabble leftist mob that is shouting that America is racist, hoping they won’t come for you.

Amazingly, the woke, liberal corporate news media is just as dishonest as you. They support your lies. And the President of the United States, Joe Biden, shows you the way. He demonstrates how to lie in public and get away with it.

Let me give you woke corporate leaders a heads-up: Everybody can see the game you are playing. Everybody can see your lies. You are the naked emperor.

You are, in fact, morally inferior to the working men and women of this great country, who are not racist people, and who, unlike you, care about truth.

And here is another bit of news for you: There is a massive backlash coming. You will rue the day when it hits you. That day is November 8, 2022. That is the day Republicans will take back the Senate and the House. It will be a day of reckoning.  

Your latest attempts to hurt Georgia’s economy will help us do something that is long overdue – make corporate welfare a thing of the past. There will be no number of well-connected lobbyists you can hire to save you. There will be no amount of donations you can make that will save you. There will be nowhere for you to hide.

It turns out that power does corrupt, and you have become corrupt. American taxpayers will soon stop tolerating your lies, your attempts to denigrate them, and your attempts to control the way they think, act, talk.

A good and great people are going to rise up and stand up for the truth. They are going to stand up for their principles. They are going to stand up for their country.

So, cancel as many people as you can right now. Make as much money off of slave labor in Communist China as you can now. Keep telling your customers how racist and sexist and unsophisticated they are.

The backlash is coming.

I think you’re perceptions are from the past.

Ironically, in this present era, it is conservatives who judge people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. And it is liberals who judge people by the color of their skin, not the content of their character. The examples of that are endless.

Anyone who works hard to be successful in this country can be successful and respected. Again, there are endless examples.
You are right, hard working people DO get respect. But respect don't pay the bills. And having RESPECT or hard work, don't guarantee SUCCESS. "Equal opportunity for all" has always been the essence of the American creed for 250 years. But, I think we both know, that this creed only applies to White Americans and White Privilege. There are certainly endless examples that will support this.

We can plainly see how White legal constructs are being used to systematically exclude and suppress all communities of color(the Geary Act, the Chinese Exclusion Act, Jim Crow laws, Non-White voting exclusion acts, and many municipal minority curfew restrictions and policies). We can also see the Systemic Discrimination and Inequalities, in every aspect of Employment, Education, Housing, Pay, Roe vs. Wade under attack, and in the Administration of Justice. Even as the US struggles TODAY to prohibit the most discriminative forms of racial exclusions and suppressions, it will never uproot entrenched structural racism. That is, the generations of Whites, that actually believe that they are socially superior to all other races. This will eventually result in the distortion of our American democracy, and will concentrate power and influence into the hands of the White majority.

Now add to this, the rhetoric of God fearing White Supremacists and Racists, the failure of 90% of all new businesses in the first 2-5 years, the widening economic gap between the rich and poor, the 1% of Americans who own and control more wealth than the bottom 50%, and the fact that all major lending institutions are White owned/controlled, then claiming that every American has the same equal opportunities to succeed is naive at best, and racists at worst.
.
Racism, segregation, and discrimination still exist today. And, will continue to exist. That is, until people realize one simple rule. Most people will eventually behave in the way they are treated, in order to be socially accepted. Race, sex, religion, or disabilities, are irrelevant. The need for acceptance is very powerful. People have even committed suicide because they were no longer accepted by the group. IMHO.

But since you are claiming that it is Liberals/Democrats who are judging people by the color of their skin, and that there is endless evidence to prove it, then let's see this evidence? Can you provide just ONE example of WHAT is the direct causal link between either political ideology and either behavior? I know that bigots and racists exists on both sides of the political spectrum.

It has always amazed me, when comparing human differences to other animals. If you are feeding a troop of baboons, and if one baboon was hoarding its food, he would be treated as being mentally defective by the other baboons. Excessive hoarding is indeed a sign of mental illness. Yet we treat those who have amassed fortunes as gods. These people are rich, because consumers have been convinced to buy products/goods/services that you don't even need for survival. Why would anyone need 10 homes, a million acres of land, 5 aircrafts, 20 cars, 5 yachts, or more money than they could possibly spend in a lifetime? This is the real insanity. In the end, it will be our economic greed that will lead to our extinction. We are already using up more of our resource footprints than is allotted. Eventually, we will be using up all of our resources, and will need multiple earths to sustain us.

If Tim Scott believes(as he says) that racism and discrimination does NOT exist today, then he IS an "oreo".

Unlike Trump who openly insults every ethnic group, every woman, the handicapped, and every human on the planet, this person apologized and resigned(under republican pressure).

Regarding the video. One White Woman, the assumption that she is a Liberal/Democrat, the assumption that she represents the entire White Liberal view of the police, I just don't get it. I DO get that if anyone who yells at a formation of police officers, you will just label them as a liberal, and start applying your usual stereotypes. Conservatives/Republicans are only interested in the changes that benefit them personally, and their wealthy donors. But they are the true enemy of the poor and the middle class.

Not so much in the 21st Century. I just finished reading a book co-written by Dana Pittard, U.S. Army Major General (Ret.) He is black. The book was not about race or politics, but about the U.S. air war against ISIS. I don't even know his personal politics after reading the book. He is now a vice president of a manufacturing company in Indiana.

The Director of the Oregon Police Academy is a black man named Jerry Granderson. He took the position after a successful 23 year career in the FBI.
.
Racism, segregation, and discrimination still exist today. And, will continue to exist.
Racism will probably always exist among the ignorant, and it is not confined to just white people. But government mandated segregation is long gone, and discrimination in hiring, housing, and banking are all illegal.

But since you are claiming that it is Liberals/Democrats who are judging people by the color of their skin, and that there is endless evidence to prove it, then let's see this evidence?
Listen to them.

If Tim Scott believes(as he says) that racism and discrimination does NOT exist today, then he IS an "oreo".
Reread the letter I quoted by Sen. Scott. He never said racism and discrimination "do not exist".
But he does make a remark that represents the overwhelming majority of Americans today ... "You are, in fact, morally inferior to the working men and women of this great country, who are not racist people, and who, unlike you, care about truth."

Regarding the video. One White Woman, the assumption that she is a Liberal/Democrat, the assumption that she represents the entire White Liberal view of the police, I just don't get it. I DO get that if anyone who yells at a formation of police officers, you will just label them as a liberal, and start applying your usual stereotypes.
She is not a conservative. She is a "woke" progressive liberal. And if "woke" progressive liberals don't want to be stereotyped, then they shouldn't act and sound stereotypical.

Conservatives/Republicans are only interested in the changes that benefit them personally, and their wealthy donors. But they are the true enemy of the poor and the middle class.
There is a difference between the rank and file and the political left and right. Liberals I know are not bad people, and they want what's best for our country just as much as I do. But the political left does everything in its power to convince black people that they are powerless and that they are victims. They even go so far as to imply that filling out a form for an ID is too hard for black people. And they feel perfectly free to insult and denigrate any well-educated, successful black person who chooses to think independently of the liberal narratives, as you did for example. Political liberals believe black people must stay on the plantation which, come to think of it, is the same thing they thought in 1860. Only now, it's just a different kind of plantation. But it's the same old racism, and it belongs almost exclusively to them. Conservatives don't think that way.

Times have changed, Shell. The liberals you once thought you knew in the 60s and 70s hardly exist anymore.
