The Chinese American Civil Rights Coalition is suing ex-President Trump for “defamation and emotional distress.” From Business Insider:
The civil rights group is arguing that Trump’s use of derogatory terms for the coronavirus has led to a rise in violence against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, TMZ reported.
The Chinese American Civil Rights Coalition is suing Trump for roughly $22.9 million, or $1 for every Asian American and Pacific Islander living in the United States, TMZ said.
It will be up to the courts to determine whether the use of such terms actually caused this uptick in violence, but considering the fact that most of the recent violent attacks on Asians have been perpetrated by blacks, this seems unlikely. To the best of my knowledge, none of the hoodlums were wearing MAGA hats, and none of them said anything to indicate that Trump encouraged them.
If the use of unflattering terms, toward an ethnic group, is grounds for a lawsuit, then CNN should be sued:
Why is CNN not being sued? It might have something to do with the fact that there is no such thing as The European American Civil Rights Coalition. In other words, demographics that lack representation are also unable to effectively seek redress for slander against them.
It might also have something to do with the fact that CNN, along with the rest of Corporate Media, does a good job of hiding anti-white crime; it’s difficult to be outraged about trends unless you’re aware of them. The vast majority of Americans live in blissful ignorance.
