Trump Mocks Asian Speech Patterns in Campaign Speech

Oh, hell no.

Less than an hour after Donald Trump ejected Univision reporter Jorge Ramos from a press conference in Iowa, the buffoonish moppet-topped businessman turned presidential hopeful adopted broken English (and possible stereotypically Asian r/l slurring) in a campaign speech (video after the jump). Trump was apparently trying to mimic Japanese or Chinese businessmen.

Earlier, in that same press conference where Ramos later went on to openly confront Trump on his anti-Latino rhetoric, Trump also suggested that undocumented immigrant gang members had sparked riots in Ferguson, referred to Asia as a “country”, demanded an apology from Megyn Kelly for asking questions relevant to feminism, and promised to immediately expel all undocumented  immigrants from the American soil with an invitation for “good ones” to return.

Fuck this dude. Seriously. Fuck this dude.

I’m so done with the Republican clown car of hate.

    Distract from the profanity laced rant of a blog entry above or from the name calling in the comments below?

    Donald Trump is not racist. He wants a workable immigration policy. What you forget is that 86% of the world is not white. And most third world countries in turmoil and most developing countries do not have significant white populations. Which means that almost all ILLEGAL immigrants are from non white countries. Which, by default, means that you cannot even speak out against illegal immigration without being called racist against some group. It makes no sense. How about we just ask people to respect our immigration laws?

    Yes you can. You can call them illegal Mexicans instead of Mexicans, you can call them illegal Asians instead of just Asians. If the politicians chose to generalize by using plain words “Asians” or “Mexicans”, then don’t go on denial mode when people call them out for their racism.

    Ah but you can’t, can you? Because now, even the word illegal is being criminalized by some. We used to say illegal aliens. That then became illegal immigrants. Now some people try to just call them immigrants, as if it’s a foregone conclusion that they deserve both residency and citizenship.

    I also suspect if you went around saying ‘illegal Mexicans,’ people would still be offended and say “How dare you? Its not illegal to be Mexican.” When it comes to labels of ethnicity, there is no winning. Besides, as a white man, even if all he said was ‘illegal immigrant,’ with no mention of race, ethnicity, or nationality, there would be some screaming ‘Dog whistle politics!’ ‘Racist code words!’

    I doubt it, ‘illegal immigrant,’ does not hold any connotation to any specific race, even whites can be illegals. There are over 5 million whites living permanently undocumented on working visas in Asia. They’re not even allowed to own properties in Asia.

    I’m not a fan of PC, I support free speech and say whatever, even if it’s wrong or stupid to say. However, there are idiot racists who take advantage of this 1st Amendment, they abuse this freedom by masking racist jokes or racist speech presentations because they know they can get away with it.

    Now, to not offend anybody, they should had said “SOME illegal Mexicans”, keep in mind there are only 11 million illegal Mexicans compared to 42 legal Mexicans, so it is important not to generalize and offend everyone. Same thing with “some illegal Asians”, there’s only a small percentage.

    If they chose the Un-PC route and offend everyone, then don’t go cry and deny that they’re not racists.

    Good points. Reasonable and pragmatic. Although the ’11 million’ number you reference is the most conservative estimate. The range is generally 11-20 million, perhaps more.

    Jenn, do you have an opinion on the term ‘illegal immigrant’?

  • RizingZan

    Same here Jenn, I cannot stand this guy. It is a bit scary how some Americans are reacting to this guy thoug. Because he has no filter, some people think, from a political standpoint, that this dude is “honest,” and that what he says is”nothing like other politicians have said before in an X amount of years.” These are actual quotes, ladies and gentlemen. Hopefully he will eat humble pie later, with a touch of karma.

  • Bob

    I just wanted to say, everyone from Bernie Sanders to Hillary Clinton to Donald Trumps keeps bashing China in their stump speeches, and all of the establishment Left seems to nod along. It’s just really grating. I went to a Sanders rally and there is was — never fails. I just think all these politicians should be asked to be more specific about what they are saying. Do they want the pollution over Beijing to be over Colorado instead? Do they want iPhones to cost $5,000?

    Derms and repugs are two heads of the same snake.

  • Dao Lang

    Both derms and repugs are puppets of the jewish bankers. All of them are against American freedom and liberty.
