“Sen. Harry Reid Launches Racist Jokes Before Asian Audience,” as spotted by Bryan Preston at the PJ Tatler:
The Daily Caller has a story on this remarkable video of Sen. Harry Reid speaking before the Las Vegas Asian Chamber of Commerce. In it, Sen. Reid engages in ethnic humor. First he jokes about Asians being smarter than everyone else — a racial stereotype, albeit a positive one. Later, he jokes that he “can’t keep his Wongs straight.” That joke has a bit more bite. Would Reid joke to a white audience that he can’t keep his Smiths straight? Is he suggesting that all Asians look alike?
I’m asking as the husband of a Japanese woman…
Sen. Reid has a history of making racial remarks, as when he noted that Barack Obama was a viable black presidential candidate because he is “clean and articulate.” He had to apologize directly to Obama for that one.
The Senator’s efforts did not help his chosen candidate for Nevada lieutenant governor. He sought the Asian Chamber’s endorsement for Democrat Lucy Flores. But the Chamber backed Republican Mark Hutchison instead.
Hey, it’s not like Harry Reid routinely holds whole masses of people in contempt, right?
Yes, of course he does:
Hey, it’s not like Harry Reid has a long history of saying a variety of vile things and putting his Florsheim in his mouth on a regular basis, right?
Again, of course he does:
Democrat house organ the New York Times has already entered into “addition through subtraction” mode that of course it would be great for Hillary if Republicans controlled both houses of Congress next year. Harry Reid, already risking a bruising 2016 reelection bid as a result of his punitive leftwing anger at pretty much the entire world may have just made their job easier. The GOP now has a way to nationalize this fall’s elections: Give us back the Senate, and move unrepentant racist Harry Reid to the back bench where he can do as little harm as possible.
