Six Racist Republican Senators Vote Against Anti-Asian Hate Crimes Bill 92-6


Daily Beast: The Senate voted Wednesday to advance a bill directing the Justice Department to speed up its review of anti-Asian hate crimes and strengthen reporting in an overwhelmingly bipartisan vote.

While 92 senators voted in favor, six Republicans voted against the legislation:

  • Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX),
  • Tom Cotton (R-AR),
  • Josh Hawley (R-MS),
  • Rand Paul (R-KY),
  • Tommy Tuberville (R-AL), and
  • Roger Marshall (R-KS).

Cotton said in a statement, “The ‘COVID-19 Hate Crimes Act,’ has been moved to the Senate floor with little commentary, factfinding, or Committee consideration.”

Anti-Asian harassment and attacks have increased significantly during the coronavirus pandemic, most notably culminating in an attack on Asian massage parlors in the Atlanta area that left eight dead.

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI), the first Asian-American woman elected to the Senate, sponsored the bill.

  1. Anyone truly concerned about racism should question the practice of baiting people into tossing their children over a wall or sending their pregnant females into harms way at some catholic ‘church’.

    That’s not to say they’re much worse than all the others when it comes to being infested with the Masonic Kult of the Snake baby rapers; all religions are equally infested!

  2. The entire presupposition the massacre was a hate crime was debunked; it could be called a sex hate crime.

    Police reported it was because they were sex workers and he denied it had to do with their ethnicity; frankly, like most other mass shootings it reeks of a gun grabbing RITUAL.

    Accusing the nay-saying banana republicans of being ‘racist’ due to their vote is straight out of the ”’communist”’ playbook; they use it all the time when a black thug does something stupid and a cop shoots him. We have people taking a knee for a porn star criminal.

    Did anyone ask them why? Every major ‘virus outbreak’ was named after the associated ground zero country and there’s been an uptick in racist attacks, usually by blacks, against all races, including their own if their not 100% black. This is hardly new, but there has been an uptick.
    I’ve known two mulatto women who said they were attacked relentlessly for being mixed.
    The only more racist group lives in Israel where 66% believe they’re ‘God’s chosen’ people.

    Don’t take my word for it as a mountain of evidence backs me up; ask Colin Flaherty who has terabytes of racists attacks by AFRICANS who even wrote a song about “How to” rob Asians.

  3. Rand Paul is a kind of Libertarian, I’ll give him a pass but the others, no. If they were uniformly against hate crimes then fine, but if there is a shooting at a Synagogue or rising tide of anti-Semitism that crew led by Ted Cruz are all over it.
    BTW I condemn violence against Jews, Asians, … as well and Iran explicitly condemned the synagogue shooting in PA. Be consistent, either you do or don’t believe that groups are targeted when you use racist tropes like ‘Kung Flu’ (chuckle, chuckle)

    • Paul seems to be a bit unbalanced…narcissism…self absorption….and limited intellect
