Asian-American Support

One good thing that has emerged out of the disgusting attacks on Asian-Americans is how the American people, regardless of ethnicity, have rallied in support of them. This is indicative of real Americans. President Biden interrupted his visit to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta to reach out to that devastated Asian community there. A wide range of Democratic politicians have made sure to  show their support and deplore these dastardly acts.

However, I am not aware of Republican support in this matter.  Even the leader of the Republican Party, Donald Trump, shamefully and conspicuously, has withheld support. I suppose this should not surprise since these Republicans showed no support for Black Lives Matter also.

This failure to support Asian-Americans is even more horrific when we consider that this leader of the Republican Party, stirred up the hate against Asian-Americans by his “kung-flu” and “china-virus” cracks pertaining to the Corona virus. Some leader! If he was still president, his mobs would be mowing them down in the streets.
