After Harry Reid’s Racist Jokes, Asian Chamber of Commerce Endorses Republican

The Asian Chamber of Commerce should be happy that Biden or Hillary didn’t come down there to make convenience store jokes. It could have been worse.

“The Asian population is so productive,” Reid told the group. “I don’t think you’re smarter than anybody else, but you’ve convinced a lot of us you are.”

He added after his remarks that he has problems “keeping my Wongs straight.”

Harry Reid later apologized after it was explained to him that the Koch Brothers aren’t Asian, but the damage was done.

The Asian Chamber of Commerce on Thursday endorsed Republican Mark Hutchison for lieutenant governor, spurning U.S. Sen. Harry Reid’s Democratic choice, Lucy Flores, after the senator spoke to the group.

Oddly racist jokes are not as endearing as Reid seems to think.

    Well what do you expect from a senile idiot?

      Retirement. Or in Harry Reid’s case, slow motion seppuku.

    If someone on the right made this comment we’d be watching it 24/7 in the traditional media news cycle. I guess even the traditional media have figured out Democrats are the real racists so this isn’t news.

      “If someone on the right made this comment we’d be watching it 24/7 in the traditional media news cycle.”

      …WITH the party affiliation identified.

      They don’t identify the party affiliation for Democrats, so basically, the way you can identify a Democrat in an unflattering situation, is to remember to look for the presence or absence of the (R) designation.

      • Boots

        Absolutely… and if there weren’t alternative media there would be no Democrat corruption or misspeaks… at least none reported. It’s something when the National Enquirer breaks major stories (John Edwards) and Drudge shames the press out of burying a story (Lewinsky).

    Biden and Reid both have bad cases of foot-in-mouth disease and they refuse treatment and therapy to correct it. Also, Reid’s tiny gray cells seem to be winking out at an accelerating rate rendering him prone to super gaffes.

    As if the Chamber was going to endorse the Dem, anyway?

      They might – remember, they’re not Conservative and many of their members seem to think you can make a deal with the Devil (any Democrat).

    • Daniel Greenfield

      Latino chamber did.

      • trickyblain

        Not surprising. Nor would it be if the African American Chamber did, also.

        I thought it was a national or state chamber (business advocates). Since it was the chamber for Las Vegas (tourism, ribbon cutting), Reid may very well have cost his fellow Dem a job.

      • JDinSTL

        Of course they did.

  • truebearing

    Reid is a paragon of consistency. He has provided endless proof of his stupidity and hypocrisy from his first day in the senate on. No one synthesizes stupid and evil quite like Harry.

    Keep making friends, Harry. You’ll need them in your federal medium security retirement home once the corruption charges catch up with you.

  • CarolinaSistah

    Reid needs to be sent to the same remedial ‘diversity’ training school they send athletes who insult homosexuals. Maybe they will ‘man pile’ him!

  • ylem

    Good news. The Democrats don’t deserve the Asian community. Their (Asian Americans) lives reflect conservatives anyway.

    • pfbonney

      Love your avatar. It got a laugh from me.

    • JDinSTL

      It was jarring to see the numbers – Asian Americans voting 3-1 for Obama in 2012. Just disgusting.

  • AngryKitty

    I am part Asian, and this makes me very, very Angry!

    • Sean Hamilton

      I find it “funny” *makes sure air quotes on my side of the screen work* how none of my Asian friends on Facebook are or have reacted to it

  • truepeers

    Wong means emperor. I know where he’s coming from.

  • Toni_Pereira

    Me rove rong time no more.

  • quillerm

    Poor Harry, he should have stuck to his endless rants and attacks on the Koch Brothers. His base is starting to realize that Harry is holding up 380 Bills in Congress while blaming the GOP for not doing their job. Could the truth be getting out?

  • Lanna

    Oh my Gosh, The Left are a bunch of fools, they don’t reason with all their facilities!
