I was under the impression that Gish Jen was the most moronic Asian-American ultra-liberal writer out there. I may have been proven wrong with the emergence of a new contender to the throne – Suey Park.
Our girl Suey has become somewhat of a celebrity by her own design. Here’s the background of the story from The New Yorker:
On Thursday night, the official Twitter account for “The Colbert Report” committed the comedic sin of delivering a punch line without its setup. The offending tweet, “I am willing to show #Asian community I care by introducing the Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever,” was meant to be a satirical analog to the Washington Redskins Original Americans Foundation, whose creation was announced earlier this week by the team’s owner, Daniel Snyder.
The joke, which originally aired on Wednesday’s episode, is not particularly complicated: Daniel Snyder created a charitable organization for the benefit of a community and used a racial epithet for that same community in the organization’s name—so here’s an absurd fictional extrapolation of Snyder’s own logic. Everyone who hates both racism and Daniel Snyder laughs.
On Twitter, where words often slip free of their contexts, the unaccompanied punch line sparked a firestorm of outrage, which quickly escalated into a campaign demanding the show’s cancellation. The hashtag #CancelColbert became one of Twitter’s trending topics across the United States, and prompted Comedy Central to point out that the tweet in question, which was soon deleted, was posted by a corporate account that Colbert did not control.
#CancelColbert started with Suey Park, a twenty-three-year-old writer and activist, who, in December of last year, came to Twitter prominence when she set up #NotYourAsianSidekick, an online conversation that encouraged Asian-American women to voice their frustrations with traditional feminism.
So Suey Park was on the Huffington Post today, with an interview that turned out to be a fail of epic proportions:
“No one’s minimalizing your right to have an opinion, it’s just a stupid opinion.”
Josh Zepp could not possibly have said that more eloquently. I totally did not see that one coming. I mean, I was saying it, but I’m just a 13 year old boy on a magical turtle. This guy is supposed to be a politically correct liberal. And even he couldn’t stomach how moronic this idiot is. If you felt like he went too far, then her response justified what he did immediately:
“You just called my opinion stupid. That’s incredibly unproductive, and I don’t think I’m gonna have to enact the labor of trying to explain to you why that’s incredibly offensive and patronizing.”
Oh yes, the classic defense of people with nothing to say – use unnecessary words. Sure, she could’ve just said I’m not gonna explain to you what an idiot you are, but if you add “I don’t think I’m gonna have to enact the labor of trying to explain to you” it sounds like you’re wicked smart. But as far as it being unproductive, it made me laugh, so I’d call that a pretty productive day’s work right there. And without a doubt your opinion is the definition of stupid. That’s a scientific fact.
You know what’s ironic? This girl isn’t very funny at all, and now she’s trying to dictate what is and isn’t funny.
This woman might be the most annoying person on earth. If I was in a room with her and Hitler, and I had a gun with two bullets, I would kill myself and let the world deal with whatever lunatic made it out alive. Seriously, she doesn’t shut up. Imagine dating this lady? Here’s her Twitter. She’s literally tweeted over 1,000 times today. That has to be some kind of record right. Whoever marries this obviously mentally unstable woman is in for quite the treat.
This girl is literally brain dead. If scientists cracked her skull open after she died, poop would literally ooze out. Her career is listed as an “activist and writer”. AKA privileged idiot who complains on Twitter all day.
The Huffington Post is the O.G. of the blogging game. I pretty much read it every day. They’re definitely 100% liberal too, so the fact that she’s all fired up at them proves what a loon she is. The reporter is obviously a lefty too, but apparently that’s not good enough for her, because he was born white. Thus he’s the devil.
When she tells this guy that “as a person of color, I wouldn’t expect a white liberal like you to understand”, that is the very moment when I envisioned her being dropped off in Syria, or a country with real problems, and then asking her how she felt about white liberal men in America. Hey lady, he’s on your side. Just because he doesn’t subscribe to your obviously moronic, oversensitive “activism” doesn’t mean he’s not a card carrying liberal. This quote right here sums up everything you need to know about her though:
“White men definitely feel like they’re entitled to talk over me. White men feel like they can minimalize my experiences. And they definitely feel like they are exempt and so logical, compared to women who are painted as emotional.”
Look sweetheart, I get how you think that white men are always trying to talk over you. That’s because you never shut up. At some point the other party would like to speak to. And it might seem like they’re “talking over you” but in the real world we call that having a conversation.
First of all, bashing Dan Gilbert for not changing the name of the Washington Redskins to something less “offensive” is kind of like the “it” thing to do right now for the feel good liberal. Gives white guys like Colbert the sense that they did something to fix racism today. Makes them feel like less of an asshole for being born white and male. The ultimate unforgivable sin.
What you have here is one group of liberals (Suey Park’s goons) telling another group of liberals (Stephen Colbert’s goons) that they’re not liberal enough. The joke he was making wasn’t meant to offend Asians, it was meant to offend people who don’t want the Redskins to change their name. It’s not exactly hard to connect the dots.
But this is the problem with radicals like Suey Park. They make careers out of getting outraged. Suey Park obviously knows jack diddly about the world since she’s 23 years old and writes on Twitter for a living. So instead of getting a real job, this is what she does. You know what the big problem with this is? This is why Fox News exists. If it weren’t for lunatics like Suey Park, we wouldn’t have lunatics like Glenn Beck. This is why liberals can’t have nice things. Because anyone who says ANYTHING that a single person can find offensive, is pressured to resign, instead of just doing what normal people do and stop watching them if you don’t like what you see.
These idiots like Suey Park think they’re actual “warriors.” They are literally insane, all of these people. They think this is 1963 and they’re staring down Bull Connor’s dogs in Birmingham. Newsflash hippies: you’re a bunch of upper-middle class nudniks with MacBooks sitting in a Starbucks. You’re not making a difference at all, unless you count radicalizing right wingers.
See the thing with people like Suey Park is, I wouldn’t even know who they are if they didn’t do shit like this. Without something to get outraged about, they’re just another hipster from Brooklyn living off of Daddy’s trust fund. She’s built a name for herself by being the psychopath who blows a nutty every time someone doesn’t use the latest politically correct terminology to describe a transgendered Mexican midget. And she can only survive and avoid getting a real job so long as she gets a steady supply of material to outrage her.
The problem with liberals is that they get off on feeling morally superior to other people. But the problem in this case is that it’s just too easy to be morally superior to conservatives. Here’s some of here tweets from today:
Plenty more where that came from. She obviously wanted a new challenge so she took on Stephen Colbert. Satire is a type of humor that’s been existent for centuries, and now this legion of morons has come along and decided it’s no longer acceptable. Well, it sucks for all of you misguided idiots, because this is America. We can say what we want here and use satire till the cows come home. So you can suck on that while I go and watch some Colbert. See ya later Suey Park.
Feel free to share your thoughts to keep the conversation going.
