'I don't want them here': North Texas congressional candidate goes off on anti-Chinese rant

A North Texas congressional candidate went on a tirade against China and potential Chinese immigrants on Wednesday.

Sery Kim, vying for the late Ron Wright's seat in Congress, made several disdainful remarks toward China and Chinese immigrants during a Republican congressional candidate forum in Arlington, the Dallas Morning News' Gromer Jeffers Jr. reports.

“I don’t want [Chinese immigrants] here at all,” Kim said. “They steal our intellectual property, they give us coronavirus, they don’t hold themselves accountable.”

“And quite frankly, I can say that because I’m Korean,” Kim said.

2. FFS people have lost their minds.

My Fil-Am wife was punched in the head a few months ago over this hysteria.

4. Omg sorry

That’s horrible. Hope she’s ok and that her attacker is not.

A friend of mine’s cousin who is Filipina and a nurse got spit on in SF.

3. Umm ... well to start ...

'China' is not 'immigrants from China'.

In fact, you might even logically say they're kinda the opposite.

China, the country, and more specifically, the Government thereof ... is worthy of reprobation on a good number of issues.

They're seriously pissing me off WRT Hong Kong, a place I lived in my youth, I can tell you that.

But this woman is WAY out of line bashing all immigrants from China with this bullshit.

And a liar to boot.

5. I really don't get it

My best friend in middle school had a Mom who came from Japan. My roommate and close friend at boarding school had a Dad who came from China. And one of the girls I lived with in college had an Asian Dad, not sure from where, never thought to ask, I only met her Mom. I never thought about it, they were just kindred spirits who became good friends of mine. My own grandmother came from Poland, I figured that everyone came from somewhere.

6. The candidate is Korean and she's bashing China

Sounds like it's more long standing political stuff. S Koreans tend to be conservative and they associate China with Communism.

7. Thanks!

Seems awfully off topic to me, but that's what Republicans seem to do these days, they're not happy unless they're bashing someone.

8. Asian on Asian racism is as ugly as any other

Just a bit less visible in the US. This makes me sad.

9. In his book Texas, James Michener describes two of the goals of the newly-founded

Republic Of Texas as the desire to rid Texas of all indigenous and Mexican persons.
And so the tradition continues...
