White (Eurocentric) racism is not a ‘clever’ ideology at the best of times – but the sheer stupidity of US anti-intellectualism is the gift that just keeps on giving! The Catholic (Jesuit) Priests – via the agency of French imperialism and colonialism – systematically destroyed the use of Chinese ideograms during their 400-year (ruthless) occupation of Vietnam! Chinese ideograms were eventually replaced with the French version of the Roman-derived alphabet and this is why Vietnamese people today cannot read or write the Chinese script and communicate using only Western words and letters when writing! The transliteration of Vietnamese terms into the Western alphabet was decided by (White) Jesuit Priests who approximated ‘sounds’ and where it took their fancy – completely altered meaning and nuance, etc. Indeed, the destruction of the Chinese traditional script in Vietnam is an example of one of the most effective imperialist offensives in history! The (White) French imperialists destroyed a complete writing system as part of the process of psychologically and physically making it easier to subjugate an entire (non-White) ethnicity!
“The fear runs deep through some of Chicago’s most prominent communities: Black, Asian, LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender), and Jewish,” said ABC7 in its report of the data from the city’s Commission on Human Relations.
During the pandemic, Asian Americans faced increased incidents of bias-related attacks, noted the report, adding that eight of the 125 total hate crimes being investigated by Chicago police this year were against Asians, a number city leaders fear is far under-reported.
“The number of hate crimes reported in Chicago increased by 44 percent compared to this time in 2021,” said the report.
The state of Illinois has reactivated a group similar to the Human Rights Commission in Chicago, that is looking at ways to increase reporting of potential hate crimes, and strengthen legislation against offenders, it added.
“To the extent that people are dealing with long COVID-19 – people of colour are going to face the same inequities they face in terms of accessing health care generally, in terms of potential treatments for long COVID-19,” said Samantha Artiga, Vice President and Director of the Racial Equity and Health Policy Programme at Kaiser Family Foundation.
The second story, if not entirely fabricated, serves as an excellent example of US (Eurocentric) racism, and exhibits a clear manifestation of ‘anti-intellectualism’ when warning the US working-class NEVER to develop any sense of unity or international collectivity with the working-class of China! If that were to happen, then an international unity between the working-class of China and the working-class of America would completely ‘undermine’ the bourgeois control of the US! If the collective working-class of America simply ended its ‘false consciousness’ and stopped its voluntary enslavement to the ‘White’ bourgeoisie – then a Socialist Revolution could well happen across North America! The bourgeois could be disempowered and removed from power as the working-class seize the means of production and hold individual bourgeois politicians accountable for the many crimes they have committed around the world using the US military and US economic terrorism! The racist aspect of this section of ‘60 Minutes’ assumes that the Communist Party of China (CPC) – which has done far more than any other government in its short historical existence to relieve poverty in the world – is as ‘stupid’ as the US bourgeois system and the average US citizen produced by this anti-intellectual aberration! The whole notion that a White American working for the ‘Pentagon’ is stupid enough to become entangled by a ‘Han’ Chinese National (supposedly working as an ‘Intelligence Officer’) and then voluntarily compromise his own freedom and safety (within the American system) by divulging trade secrets to a country that the US government continuously refers to as an ‘enemy’ – even though no state of war exists between the two countries (despite intense US provocations over Taiwan) – is beyond belief!
This attitude is a total inversion of Marxist-Leninism! Indeed, it is a victory for a) predatory capitalism, and b) Trotskyism! What I find interesting is why modern ‘Russian’ adherents to Marxist-Leninism still insist on preferring a ‘Russo-centric’ (‘nationalist’) view of reality? Infiltrating ‘nationalism’ is one of the greatest betrayals of Marxist-Leninism and has been so successful outside of China that most European ‘Leftists’ take it for granted and see it as normal! Most post-1991 so-called ‘Communist Parties’ have abandoned ‘Internationalism’ as if such a pan-working-class attitude was an ideological mistake made by Lenin! The USSR is NOT a place but a concept.
Although the term ‘Gypsy’ is often used as a term of ethnic and racial abuse – I use it here – with the greatest sense
