“I see more and more Asians, for the first time in their lives living in America, getting involved…”
Asians in America, the fastest-growing racial or ethnic group in the U.S. according to Pew Research 4/9/21, are highly motivated in defending their rights in America with their votes this November. Discrimination toward Asian students into elite college and high school admissions in the ‘name of equity,’ gender ideologies pushed in schools, and other divisive tactics are among the driving forces on why Asians are rising up, says Virginia mom Xi Van Fleet. As an immigrant from China who survived Mao’s Cultural Revolution, Van Fleet has been sounding the alarm on the mass indoctrination, division, cancel culture, and lawlessness that has taken a grip in America, which she recognizes as a replay of the Cultural Revolution that destroyed China 50 years ago.
Van Fleet pointed out that the Democrat party remained silent about skyrocketing violent crimes against Asians, and that they hash-tagged ‘Stop Asian Hate’ only when the perpetrators were ‘white.’ This is Identity Politics. Other Chinese immigrants who experienced Communism in China have warned that “Identity politics is the hallmark of Maoism.”
“I see more and more Asians, for the first time in their lives living in America, getting involved and participating in the Primary. And they are donating, they are organizing, they are holding rallies, supporting the candidates that they think will help them with their values and their lives.” declares Van Fleet. One such example was Elizabeth Heng of California, who feels Asians are absolutely furious and are coming out in mass to vote in order to bring ‘sanity’ back to California and the country, and to get the economy and livelihoods going again.
This is the wave of the Political Power of Asian American Voters in 2022.
