Harris implies Trump’s rhetoric responsible for violent attacks on Asian Americans

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris visited Atlanta, Georgia this week following a mass shooting in the state that left eight people dead, including six Asian women, Fox News reported.

During their remarks, the pair implied that rhetoric from former President Donald Trump and other Republicans is behind the violence against Asian Americans. However, there are no federal crime statistics to support that claim.   

Baseless claims

“For the last year, we’ve had people in incredible positions of power scapegoating Asian Americans,” Harris said Friday, according to Fox. “People with the biggest pulpits spreading this kind of hate.”

“Ultimately, this is about who we are as a nation,” the vice president continued. “This is about how we treat people with dignity and respect.”

Biden sounded a similar note, declaring, “We’re learning what we’ve always known: Words have consequences.” He added, “It’s the coronavirus, full stop. Hate and violence often hide in plain sight, it’s often met with silence.”

He continued, “Whatever the motivation we know this: too many Asian Americans are walking up and down the streets worrying … feeling their safety is at stake.”

The president claimed that people of Asian descent have spent a “year of living in fear for their lives, just to walk down the street.”

No statistical evidence

Those comments aren’t unique to Harris and Biden, as many on the left have claimed that Donald Trump accurately pointing out that COVID-19 originated in China incites hatred for Asian people.

“I think there’s no question that some of the damaging rhetoric that we saw during the prior administration — calling COVID the ‘Wuhan virus’ or other things — led to perceptions of the Asian American community that are inaccurate, unfair,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday, according to The Hill.

Psaki claimed that such rhetoric has resulted in “elevated threats against Asian Americans, and we’re seeing that around the country.”

However, there is no statistical evidence that links Trump’s comments on the coronavirus with violence against Asian Americans.

During his podcast on Friday, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro pointed out that the 2018 National Crime Victimization Survey from the Bureau of Justice Statistics showed that the largest share of anti-Asian violence was committed by African American offenders. Meanwhile, polling conducted by Pew Research shows that African Americans are the group who are least likely to support Republicans.

  1. It came from China. That makes it the China virus! That’s not bashing or belittling Asian people. By the time these cancel cretins are finished, we will have no descriptive language for anything. Meanwhile, DemonRats rob the treasury, open our border, take away freedom, and promote every kind deviant and offensive behavior. Shut your mouth Harris.

  4. Here we go again…Idiots in Washington talk thru their rear ends and blame the wrong folks. President Trump is no longer in office so I suggest they find another person to pick on. Maybe that’s too tough for them.

    1. Everything Biden n Kamala says they Blame on Trump is a Big Liar We Sure Need Trump Back in White House to Fix All this Stuff Biden has been a Total Disaster

    2. Blame John Roberts and the Supreme Court! They allowed the Democrats to steal the elections! They have blood on their hands and will burn in Hell for not standing up to the truth!

  5. It is also telling people to “Shut up about Biden and Hunters illegal deals.” This has nothing to do with Trump. Why was Asian’s attacked in California before this every happen by BLM? Tired of lies and living with evilness. Why don’t they get to the source and they look at themselves.

  6. Please explain how calling it the China Virus, since it did originate in China, is the same as bashing Asian people? The left is trying so hard to divide America and they are reaching for anything they can come up with. They start saying something, true or not, and ignorant people pick up on it and run with it. No one actually knows why derogatory comments are made about a group, but it grows and gets worse. The left needs to stop saying untrue statements and people need to stop believing everything they are told.

    1. Trump’s “rhetoric” had NOTHING to do with the attacks on Asian-Americans. It has everything to do the race-baiting rhetoric coming out of this administration and their minions- Antifa and BLM. This administration has created more hatred in the past year than anyone else.

    1. “Disgrace” doesn’t even begin to describe them! The lying,repulsive, hypocrites will have this country on it’s knees before all is said and done.May God help us all!

  7. Moan and groan all you want, this woebegone light weight has a distinct possibility of being POTUS. Imagine the mindset of that shrew in Chappaqua if/when that occurs. Worse yet would be a situation where #3 in line, San Fran Feces Nan, maneuvers her way to the top!

    1. Maybe not,because I don’t think there is a single demonRAT that doesn’t have prosecutorial dirt in their recent past that will allow them even time to unpack before they’re heading to prison! Well,maybe the housekeeping staff. But I DID say maybe!!

  8. In My Opinion; the GREATEST Problem with OUR Country, is the SO CALLED Leaders: i.e.; Bidum and Horris! Spell error deliberate!
    As I’ve read many time, and often repeat; “Power Corrupts; Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely” !!!!!

  9. The little meeting in Alaska was JUST A LITTLE TASTE of how we are going to be Belittled in the world. SO sad as we were all doing well and were for the most part upbeat. The rats have to act like the dirty evil rats MOST OF THEM ARE! I did not say all. The rinos and some repub leave a lot to be desired.

  10. Since when have the DemoRATS been respectful of people and not calling them names….just look at all the comments and vile said about Trump from all the brain-dead Dem’s i.e. Waters, Shumbager, Piggoski, Omar, and the other Squad members, some of the Rino’s and the Hollywood wanna-be’s important so called actors/actress’s. AND now even the other countries are having a laughing rage at Biden/Harris. Even Russia and North Korea are calling Biden a weak president.

  11. Didn’t she say Biden was a political idiot. Well she was correct on that point . Had to be correct since he was stupid enough to appoint heras his vp.

  12. Harris. You are so full of baloney, l can smell your lies all the way out here in West Texas…. Or, maybe you have new way to spell “Asian” is now “BLM”‼️

  13. Although President Trump called the virus the Wuhan virus, he always added that the people of China were wonderful people, and that the CCP was the problem, not the people. He has never said a disparaging word about Asian people, or Asian Americans. Just another lie from the left.

  14. I cannot believe people would trust the narrative the globalists are pushing about Whites being a threat to Asians. I have lived in Houston, Texas for more than 46 years and have NEVER known anyone who dislikes Asians much less harm them. We love our Asians in the Houston area and we have a sizable population of them; they are very intelligent, work hard, are very friendly, and good people. The FBI reveals that their crime statistics debunk the media´s narrative that White people represent the biggest violent crime threat to Asians.
    Black people comprise 13% of the population; they committed 27.5% of all violent crimes against Asian Americans in 2018, while Whites comprise 62% of the population they only committed 24% of crimes against Asians. So tell us Whites how White Supremacy is the issue! In fact, I just read some Asians stated they use/go by the ¨White Supremacy¨ way of life and life a better life because of it. Our next door neighbors are wonderful Asians and are good people and friends.

  15. Shall we get off the hate and stab-in the-back Demo’s rhetoric and get on with the business at hand-the needs and problems of actual Americans without the grandstanding for Senatorial personal gain?

  16. Whether true or NOT, the left will twist it to where it points against former President Trump…..
    It appears that all the pot she used to smoke while having a “hay-day” in San Fran. has fried her grey matter……

  17. Trump had NOTHING to do with the attacks on Asian-Americans. This has everything to do the race-baiting rhetoric coming from this administration and all their followers who love both Antifa and BLM. This administration has done more to spread hatred in the last few months then even Obama ever did and that is really really bad.

  18. Caligula Harris, any credibility you may have had is rapidly vanishing every time you open your mouth. Your are disingenuous, less than honest and little to offer. Do the right thing. If not the storm will appear on your house of cards, sooner than you and Biden think.

  19. Oh…. but we don’t want to talk about conservatives with RED hats getting beat up and even killed. Nooooooo… that would be too fair.

  20. The Democrats ate probably already working on the ballots for the 2024 election. They will need more than they did for the 2020 election because people are already getting fed up with this administration. It is the laughing stock of the whole world. I doubt that anybody in the world really believes that we elected these two as President and Vice-President. I really don’t think that they believe the American people are “that” stupid.

  21. what more can you expect from these two morons , look they want unity , is sending covid illegals around our country unity? TREASON is an attempt to overthrow the government , that is really what is happening here . Even the National Guard is wondering why non of them were sent to the riots in many of our cities . To overthrow the government you just need to create a CRISES and then deny it . all must remember the Constitution and Bill of rights and push to preserve them this is OUR country . stop spreading the Virus to end our country Mr. Biden
