Democrats reject GOP proposal to address academic discrimination against Asian Americans

In the wake of an Atlanta-based shooting that claimed the lives of a number of Asian Americans, Democrats have exploited the tragedy to push the narrative that the violence perpetrated against Asian Americans is born out of white supremacy, and have even blamed former President Donald Trump for what they allege is his role in the violence.

Although Democrats have gone to painstaking measures to virtue signal that they care greatly for the Asian American community, not a single Senate Democrat voted in favor of an amendment that would prohibit federal funds from being dispersed to universities that discriminate against Asian Americans, the Daily Caller reported.

Cruz’s amendment

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) proposed the amendment to the “COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act,” which was authored by Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), that would have terminated federal funding for universities and colleges known to take part in discrimination against Asian Americans in the admissions process.

In the Texas senator’s amendment, known as SA 1456, any school that has “a policy in place or engages in a practice that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions,” would not be eligible for federal funding.

Not one Democrat supported Cruz’s amendment, with a party-line vote of 49-48 against the amendment being included in the bill.

Democrats, instead, were focused on cracking down on using terms like the “China virus” or the “Wuhan virus,” which Democrats have suggested is partly responsible for the rise in crimes against Asian Americans.

Cruz called Hirono’s bill a “Democratic messaging vehicle” which he said is simply a way for Democrats to justify their claims that using the words “China” and “Wuhan” to describe the COVID-19 virus is “somehow racist.”

Asian American admissions discrimination

Democrats apparently aren’t concerned with the very serious issue of institutions of higher learning discriminating against the Asian American population, which has been well-documented by the Asian American Coalition for Education (AACE).

The organization documents instances of Asian American discrimination, noting that “many studies have uncovered overwhelming evidence that Ivy League Universities and other selective schools have been engaged in systematic and continuous discrimination against Asian-Americans in the college admissions process.”

Most of the studies that AACE cites revolve around alleged admissions discrimination by Harvard University, including data revealing “similar declines also occurring at Yale, Cornell, and most other Ivy League universities,” with regard to the number of Asian Americans enrolled at the prestigious universities.

Democrats aren’t serious about the issue

“When Democrats decide to take hate and racism seriously, that means they will address this and not ignore it because it doesn’t fit neatly into their messaging tactics,” Cruz said after his amendment was shot down by Democrats.

If Democrats want the the country to take their talk about Asian American discrimination seriously, then perhaps they could start by addressing real issues of discrimination instead of politically-incorrect words.

  1. Well again manchin showed what he really is. I do not believe the people of WV would like the way he voted.

  2. This Asian racism narrative was started by Harvard announcing their policy to reduce their number of Asian Americans they were allowing in so they could allow more Blacks. So as a cover they flipped it onto the fact that the Virus came from China. Facts don’t matter.

  4. Systemic racism is the Democrats way of saying screw everyone. It’s their way or no way. I would rather jump off a bridge then listen and follow these puppets. Put signs up in the neighborhood. Car windows and any where else. Demand Biden and Harris resign. Everything they have done is wrong and evil. Bet they would give their family away to win the election. Nothing they say is what they do.

    1. Ben,
      Because the ATTACKERS are primarily BLACK, and THAT my friend does not fit their “narrative”. They cannot go against their “plantation residents” they have kept under their CONTROL for so many decades.

  5. The people of this country really need to get the democrats out of any government office that they hold.

  6. Interesting, considering the author of the bill, Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), is herself Hawaiian, which natives are mainly Asian America descendants.

    1. bernard,

      These acts are INDEED a crime, HOWEVER you are dealing with the corrupt democommunist party, and as everyone with their eyes open, can see there is that “double standards” that is only “enjoyed” by the democommunists and rinos that “allow” them to do (or KILL) whatever or WHOMEVER the hell they please, and get away with it. If the LAW was followed as it should be, and the perpetrators of these crimes arrested, and charged, DC would be a Ghost town and the prisons would be full of corrupt politicians, and their “financiers” like soros, gates, the “secret society” people, as well as those anti America billionaires, and millionaires BUT MONEY TALKS and these EVIL people get away with everything by BUYING, BRIBING, and Threatening their way out.
