Quick Takes–Asian Salad, French Fries and Susan Rice

In the latest politically correct rant, Bonnie Tsui brings out a tried and true liberal rant of “racism” in an opinion piece for the New York Times Sunday Review. In this case, the object of her outrage is a salad.

In a piece she titles “Why Is Asian Salad Still On The Menu?”, Bonnie brings out the “As an Asiam-American (hyphenated descriptions are always the favored ones) I’m insulted because this isn’t really Asian” routine and says that Asian salads are racist.

One can only hope that the French don’t get insulted of our love of French fries—which I hear aren’t really French—after all these years. that the French don’t get insulted over our love of fries–which I hear aren’t really French-after all these years. hope that the French don’t get insulted over our love of fries–which I hear aren’t really French-after all these years.

 

Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor for President Obama, was recently found to have ‘unmasked’ the names of US citizens who were inadvertently bugged when talking to foreign nationals. By law, names of US citizens remain secret unless considered a matter of national security. In the last months of the Obama Administration Rice submitted a large number of requests to get those names, oddly enough a number of which were Trump advisors who also were leaked to the press, which would be a criminal offense to give out classified information.

As part of Congressional investigation into foreign influence in US politics, Rice has been asked to testify and yesterday announced that she was refusing. We will wait to see if the same people who have pushed so hard for a Congressional investigation of Trump campaign officials dealing with Russian and other foreign nationals now also call loudly for Rice to be forced to testify.   Any bets on that one?
