Who will “Asian Americans” vote for? Speak for yourself, Mike Honda

Post-racial America, we hardly knew you.

On the heels of California Democrat Rep. Loretta Sanchez screeching about “the Vietnamese” and GOP challenger Van Tran trying to “take away” her seat in the year’s most embarrassing ethnic card implosion, you would think other California minority politicians would forsake such poisonous identity politics.

Nope, not a chance.

Here’s California Democrat Rep. Mike Honda arguing that “Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders” — one of the most absurd, artificial racial/ethnic constructs of our government bean-counting bureaucracy — will vote Democrat because of the party’s commitment to “diversity,” open borders, and big government:

This groundswell of AAPI interest in running for office under the Democratic banner should not surprise anyone, given that Democrats place great value in representing diverse constituencies, and ensuring that all of us have a voice in our government. Democrats not only espouse these values of inclusion, they act upon it.

Finally, AAPIs support the Democratic Party because it is Democrats who best address the needs of our diverse community. Democrats fight hardest to reform our broken and outdated immigration system, and reunite AAPI families who suffer the longest family immigration backlogs, sometimes lasting over two decades. Democrats are the ones who fight to end predatory lending through Wall Street Reform, advocate for greater funding for higher education and who fight to expand access to affordable and quality health care through historic health care reform legislation…

…I am proud that the Democratic Party is the party for Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. The support that Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have shown to the Party is by no accident. The Democratic Party is the one that invests in voter outreach in our communities, that is the breeding ground for AAPI rising political stars, and that addresses our communities’ concerns in national policy debates.

The Democratic Party is the party of inclusion. Together, we ensure that all voices are heard in our government, including those of our most vulnerable populations. This commitment is not missed by the Asian American and Pacific Islander community. After all, they do not serve green tea at the Tea Parties.

Honda is silent about Tea Party-endorsed GOP congressional candidate Charles Djou in Hawaii — and also silent about the identity politics zealotry that tore apart the Democrat challengers in the race. There’s a growing network of “Asian Republicans” and “AAPI” candidates who reject the Democrat Party for its culture of entitlement, victimhood, and tribal mentality. We don’t need “green tea” to feel welcome in the Tea Party movement. We prefer assimilation to multicultural rot. We are Americans first. Screw the hyphens.

Who will “Asian Americans” vote for Election Day?

Speak for yourself, Rep. Honda.
