Caught your attention, didn’t it? Mine too. This morning I came across Steve Silberman’s twitter headline pointing out that when people typed “I Am Extremely” into the Google search bar, one of the top suggestions was “Terrified of Chinese People.” Fascinated to see what fools these mortals be, I clicked the link only to discover an article on Christwire that was actually able to claim that they were terrified of a racial group but that this didn’t mean they were racist. Confused? You’re not alone. Just take a quick look at some of the extremely confused statements that attracted nearly 200,000 searches. It seems we may be in the midst of a new “Yellow Peril” that first gripped the United States in the 1880s (see anti-Chinese propaganda poster from that time to the right).
According to Christwire:
I am extremely terrified of Chinese people, but I am not racist. You should feel the same way too.
Much like their brethren in the USSR and the Democratic party, the Chinese are atheistic wonders. Their lack of morals means they have no problems developing WMDS with which to bring massive death, all while doing genetic manipulation and cloning to ensure population boom.
I’m not sure which part of that statement is the looniest. Is it the claim that the Chinese are atheists or that Democrats are? The blanket statement that a nation of nearly a billion people “lack morals” or that they’re cloning people to grow their populations (afterall, they all look the same, right?).
A national poll by Harvard University found that, on college campuses, students who identify as Republican or Democrat had about the same level of religious belief. Where they differed was how much it should be a part of the political process.
As for the alleged atheism in China, according to the Chinese governments own statistics there are:
over 100 million followers of various religious faiths, more than 85,000 sites for religious activities, some 300,000 clergy and over 3,000 religious organizations throughout China.
But the crazy just keeps getting crazier:
Only 60 years ago, these Asian peoples joined up with Adoldf Hitler in order to destroy the most moral nation on Earth. Even though their attacks took the life of many good men on a day of infamy, America was blessed to rain bombs of freedom and nurture resultant liberty within a very dark Asian culture.
Reality check. I believe you’re thinking of the Japanese. Are you really not able to tell the difference? The Chinese were the victims of Japanese aggression (think Rape of Nanking) and were decidedly not allied with the Axis powers. And those “bombs of freedom” that you so highly praise, they were dropped on innocent civilians most notably in the form of atomic bombs at Hiroshima and Nagasaki where there were no military forces whatsoever. It’s one of the great crimes of the 20th century. You should probably know where it happened.
Historically, Chinese people have naturally wanted to bring destruction and great mayhem to all things American. Liberals will tell you lies and say this is not true and very extreme, but mark my words. Liberals want nothing more than to see a small population of American overran by billions of Asians. This is why they support abortion.
Yes, I couldn’t agree more. Abortion is nothing but a secret plot to reduce the number of white people in preparation for welcoming our new Chinese overlords. I’m sorry, what?
Know that the Chinese are going to attempt a great battle, battle being perhaps better described as a world domination plan. Such endeavors typify their nature, as their culture still does not value the principles of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
Asia still is bitter about WW2, and how we showed them new ways to live outside their old Pagan tradition, and it’s for this reason that you must be very afraid. At its roots China embraces communism, a practice which noble men like Senator McCarthy, President Ronald Reagan and the somewhat liberal John Paul II fought against with all their heart.
It would seem that this rant is little more than Christian dominionism attempting to force Cold War mythologies into an epic battle between good and evil. If China is so committed to communism that surely must make Wal-Mart, the primary importer of Chinese goods, the most successful communist enterprise in history. God bless Ronald Reagan and his free market belief system for helping the godless Chinese? The Chinese government has entirely rejected communism in any literal sense. That’s why the United States is so keen to do business with them. Noble men like Senator McCarthy and President Reagan have no problem doing business with dictators, but when they start advocating for the poor and downtrodden (such as in Nicaragua where Reagan conducted a secret terrorist war) that’s when they get religion.
Despite past American grace, the menace of the the People’s Republic of China truly a great peril to the world today. Indeed, these people seek nothing but to steal land from the West and kill you and your family dead in the process.
Right. Perhaps one of the great ironies of this whole piece are the Google ads that appear to the right of this viciously racist diatribe. Not one, but two separate links promoting “Beautiful Chinese Women For Dating and Marriage.” There you have it. We need to go to war with the Chinese to defend our very existence, and then marry their women. It’s just like the Good Book says:
Have you saved all the women alive? . . . Kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves (Numbers 31:15-18).
And people say Christians don’t know their Bible.
