Democrats Block Amendment That Would Ban Funding Colleges That Discriminate Against Asian Americans

Senate Democrats ended last week with a vote to OPPOSE blocking federal tax dollars from colleges that discriminate against Asian Americans. Despite its claims to oppose discrimination and to support inclusion, not a single Democrat voted in support of the amendment.

The amendment, proposed by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), proposed, “To prohibit Federal funding for any institution of higher education that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions.”

The measure received strong Republican support, though Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) did not vote on the amendment. Two Democrats, Sens. Amy Klobuchar (MN) and Tina Smith (MN) also did not vote. Cruz, along with Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) highlighted the left’s failure to support the amendment.

“In an unbelievably cynical move, Senate Democrats blocked efforts to stop discrimination against Asian Americans in higher education, where racial bias has become all too common,” they wrote. “This amendment would bar funds from institutions that discriminate against Asian American students.”

“Despite their calls to end racism, it is clear Democrats are only paying lip service to fighting discrimination against Asian Americans and will allow targeted discrimination against them to continue at America’s universities and colleges,” the statement added.

 

The move signals the left isn’t as serious about ending racism as it claims. Instead, the left conveniently chooses which racism to fight, largely based on who puts forth the money.

The contrast was highlighted recently when a BLM founder was outed for a luxury home buying spree of four homes in predominantly white neighborhoods. How can BLM’s leadership care so deeply about “systemic racism” and then join those they rant against?

Or how about Squad member Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA)? She called for the nation to cancel rent due to COVID-19, claiming it was a matter of life and death. Pressley was then recently revealed to be receiving thousands of dollars in rent as a landlord at the same time.

Then there’s AOC. She continues to advocate for defunding the police because, of course, racism. At the same time, AOC and her Squad friends have racked up tens of thousands of dollars in security expenses. That’s why she’s ok defunding the police, it won’t hurt her, she has personal bodyguards to protect her. She doesn’t care about you though.

Democrats talk a good game when it comes to racism. They just don’t always seem to be consistent. How can the left cry for black reparations one moment over events from more than a century ago but say its ok for institutions to discriminate against Asian Americans?

It’s hard to say for certain, but a certain Ivy League school with a four-letter name starting with Y recently faced a lawsuit due to Asian American discrimination. Under the proposed Cruz amendment, the university could have been denied federal funding.

In 2015, Yale received $480 million in federal funding, placing it in the top 20 of all American schools. Did this have a little bit to do with what happened in the Senate last week?

In 2021, it seems like nothing is what it seems. When conservatives are the leaders in opposing discrimination in the Senate, it could make progressives begin to question a lot of what they have been told.

  1. Anyone with an average IQ surely knows that the Democratic party is using racism to fight them battles.. sooner or later this will become clear to all. The Democratic party is the most racist party and always has been if you don’t believe me look in history. Maybe that’s why the Democratics want to change what our children is being taught. No longer are they allowed to know of our nation’s history and the great leaders who created this country of ours.

    1. The bad thing is history is not taught today as it was yesteryear. My grandson (11) and I (60+) was discussing his history, Civil War era, and you wouldn’t BELIEVE what’s NOT in his history book. Forget your history…doom to relive it!!

  2. It’s the blacks they are scared of. Look at the trash representing the hate squad. They all hate America, and true Americans, they are criminal racist terrorists, with an agenda to destroy America, and the weak demonics are allowing them to get their way. Jelly brain is controlled by Chancellor Pelosi of the new Reich, is running things up front, while the Nazis (the deep state) tell her what to do whilst hiding in dark corners. Soros and Cortez’s minder, and money are paying millions in bribes to a party always known for its greed, and lust for power. They really believe a few empty words, a few weak bills passed will appease the trash in the BLM, whose leaders are more corrupt even than the demonics. They are pocketing the money, and buying million dollar properties is white upper class areas, you won’t find them living with ordinary black people. The whole thing is a scam from beginning to end, and it’s going to get worse, a whole lot worse. You have been warned. Just hope you can survive until 2022, for some change. These riots will not stop, the terrorists have tasted blood, and they want more, they care nothing about law and order, they want to riot, commit arson, pillage, and just like in New York, murder with impunity. That’s what the new Nazi party is giving you. Welcome to the Fourth Reich.

  3. Oh, come now! Didn’t you know? How dare those yellow people demand the same rights that black people have? The very idea! The nerve of them! S/

    The Democrat Communists will do nothing to ruffle the feathers of blacks who themselves hate Asians. Yup, they demand equality while violently discriminating against Asians and Caucasians. Because, you know, “political” equality.

    This country has become an international laughing stock. Thanks Democrats!

  4. They may be a bit bigoted against Asians, but it’s white people they really hate and want to destroy. I’ve been saying for years that the DemoRATs hate white people. And now they’re allying themselves with african savages like BLM in their quest to destroy the caucasian race.

  5. So much we see and hear now makes no sense, is illogical or utterly contradictive, one might say PARADOX.
    Now, ‘DOXA’, in old Greek, means SENSE or REASON and ‘para’ can be ‘sideways along’, i.e. ‘not with’ or ‘against it’.
    If the so called “Democrat” Party were, a they claim, om the side of the less wealthy, the working, the minority people, they would be in ‘paradox’ to their historical position. That would be good – after all, that old position was the supporting basis for slavery, exploitation, and -in the end- the KuKluxKlan. Unfortunately, however, I do not see a full turning away from these old directions.
    Just look at one point that is clearly linked to oppressing the darker US citizens and the poorer ones in general: The so called “Planned (Non) Parenting” was founded, as its founder said and taught and discussed with Adolf Hitler, to “keep down the Negro and lower population”, and she also taught that to the KKK!
    Can we believe anyone who supports that to be “FOR MINORITIES AND POORER PEOPLE”?
    And look at matters of Policing and Black Lives: ‘Black Lives Matter’ was founded In 2014 in Ferguson, after the, then, VP Biden declared the killing of Michael Brown “justified”. There had been other occasions when that same man had excused Police Brutality, like in the case of Rodney King. And Police Brutality was strengthened by the Police Laws Josef R. Biden worked out as Head of the Congress Justice Committee in 1994 and 1998.
    Would any thinking Black person believe such a man and party to be their “friends”?
    And in December 1994, just after Biden’s first law, the first person I could find died under a police knee in NY: Anthony L Baek, 29 year old and not a notorious criminal. But remember what the Police Chief of Minneapolis told the Court of Floyd/Chauvin under oath: ‘That Chauvin acted against Minneapolis police practice’. BUT: That police had, in the 5 years before, used that CHOKEHOLD 237-times!!!, and made 44 people UNCONSCIOUS!!!
    So, why is that Black Police Chief committing PERJURY and throwing his White officer to the wolves?
    We have to bear in mind that over 90% of the Black Lives Lost through Police ARE LOST IN DEMOCRAT CITIES!
    Let’s see that clearly: The “Democrat” policies have changed a bit – BUT NOT CHANGED MUCH!
    What has changed is the ADVERTISING, but KKK and RACISM are still in the backyard.
    It’s just A PARADOX BETWEEN THE CLEAN TOP CLOTHING AND THE DIRTY UNDERWEAR.
    But, don’t forget: The UNDERWEAR IS CLOSER TO THE BODY THAN THE FANCY FASHION!

  6. I don’t know why the various colleges have reduced the numbers of ” Aisans ” in their roles , some time back a magazine article pointed out how the Ivy Leaguers were playing with ethnic groups with the results that more ” Asians ” ( ie; Chinese students ) were given the overwhelming balance of admission over all other ‘ races ‘ . Also that the Chinese were to be favored as a ‘suckup’ in the then-current endeavor to curry favor with the ccp so tech business would increase . This shows the trends set by ‘ educational think tanks ‘ and has nothing to do with education , but everything to do with the failed liberalist policies of the past . I am referring to the ear when GM built their Buick plant in China . Why would they ? Because , the Buick was a status symbol among the new , rising middles class that China was showing the world that ” we have a middle class ‘ , Coincidentally , not long after Tienamen Square blew up in their faces . Their gov’t , caught off-guard decided to play the crisis ( doesn’t this sound familiar ; ” Never Waste A Crisis ” ?? !! ) Why Cruz would separate out the ” Asians ” for their own ‘special’ & ‘not really Americans after all’ bill , is unbelieveable – it’s symbolically racist to do so – in AMERICA , this should be seen as unnecessary .

  7. Democrats don’t want to fix anything- they want to complain about issues and make it worse. Shame on them

  8. I think the problem the left has with Asians is how well they do in educating themselves & the success that accrues therefore contrasts so sharply with blacks sets an obvious standard the left refuses to meet on behalf of the blacks which public schools have deliberately refused to educate & instead indoctrinate useless knowledge. Blacks are therefore ill prepared for college.So do they try to lift up blacks? No, like everything they do they reduce to the lowest common denominator the playing field by eliminating the best,the Asians. Otherwise blacks would demand equal education,something the left is determined to deny them,and this is their method to disguise that denial.Democrats are a poison on America & must be eradicated for universal success for all.
