Commentary on Political Economy

This is Horrifying News, but unless Han Chinese living in America take a firm stand against the Chinese Dictatorship, rather than continue to communicate on WeChat and seek to propagate their "culture" or seek to soft-soap us with "Asian-American" trash talk, it is obvious that they will be "collateral damage". Grow up, people! This is a war. And in a war, it's "mors tua, vita mea" (your death is my life). If you stay in America or the West, you are either with us or you are against us. If you are a citizen, you are a traitor. If you are not, you are a spy. Either way, if you do not join us, we will declare "open season" on you...

Elderly woman stomped in the face in New York in COVID-19 hate crime


An elderly Asian-American woman was attacked by a man Monday afternoon who repeatedly kicked her in front of witnesses who seemingly stood by, according to surveillance footage released by the New York City Police Department.

The 65-year-old woman was walking along 43rd Street when a man came up to her and kicked her in the stomach, knocking her to the ground, the NYPD said.

The man then stomps on the woman’s face several times while hurling anti-Asian statements at her, police said. He later casually walks away, the footage shows.

A man inside a building lobby seemingly stops what he’s doing to watch the assault and later two more men wearing blazers walk into the frame and one of them closes the door as the woman lies on the ground.

The woman was hospitalised with serious injuries.

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the incident and has asked anyone with information to contact the department.

According to a report from Stop AAPI Hate, more 3795 incidents were reported to the organisation from March 19, 2020 to February 28, 2021. The organisation said that number is “only a fraction of the number of hate incidents that actually occur.”

There has been a sharp rise in hate crimes against people of Asian descent in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, fuelled by anti-Asian rhetoric from figures such as former US president Donald Trump, who repeatedly blamed China for COVID-19 and referred to it as “the China virus”.
