Suddenly the news is filled with articles about protests against hate crimes against Asians. If such a thing exists, it would certainly be troubling but I can’t find solid evidence of such a problem. Not every crime crime committed against an Asian is a hate crime.
A sex addict killed 8 sex workers claiming he had to eliminate temptation. 6 of them were Asian. But they were killed because they worked in a massage parlor, an industry dominated by Asians, not because they were Asian.
Finding accurate statistics has been difficult, because crimes that would have been characterized as robberies or simple assaults a year ago are now seen as hate crimes. But even at their worst, the number if hate crimes against Asians is a small fraction of those against Jews, which has been going on for a century.
All this happens at a time when we are in difficult negotiations with China, and the CCP has thousands of agents in this country working on disinformation campaigns. This is certainly convenient.
I am reminded of a flash mob, a dance routine that appears to be spontaneous, but in reality is carefully planned.
