Trump supporters, here we go!

Post by Idéfix on Wed Nov 16, 2016 1:28 pm

Steve Bannon doesn't like the idea of people from South Asia being CEO of Silicon Valley companies. Who is Steve Bannon, you ask? Only Trump's chief strategist, the top policy job in the West Wing.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/steve-bannon-disgusted-asian-ceos-silicon-valley_us_582c5d19e4b0e39c1fa71e48

“When two-thirds or three-quarters of the CEOs in Silicon Valley are from South Asia or from Asia, I think...” Bannon said. “A country is more than an economy. We’re a civic society.”

Bannon’s “facts” were, in fact, well off. A May 2015 study found that 27 percent of professionals working in Silicon Valley companies were Asian or Asian-American. They represented less than 19 percent of managers and under 14 percent of executives, according to the report.

Even if his original numbers were correct, so what? There was a time when close to 100% of silicon valley execs were white. I didn't hear them being too worried.

“You got to remember, we’re Breitbart,” Bannon replied. “We’re the know-nothing vulgarians. So we’ve always got to be to the right of you on this.”

No what he wants is affirmative action for whites in silicon valley, a fundamentally lefty concept. What's he babbling about?

It's amusing (for outsiders like me) and tragic that briwnskinned supporters here still imagine that they're somehow not going to be affected by the white resurgence and attendant racism just because they're not Hispanics or Muslims. Sad!

Right on. And it's not just outsiders like you who find it amusing. There's a bit of gawking at roadkill aspect to this, except the gawkers don't know there's a truck barreling right behind them and they'll soon be roadkill too.

It's like a turkey watching another turkey being slaughtered and being amused by it, oblivious that he's next in line :-).

So long as Trumpu-Garu leaves Velanati Reddys alone, we have nothing to fear.

bwahaha . what started as breast-beating soon turned into full fledged hysteria just as i expected in my above post.
i am only surprised that it took a whole day to come to this . i fully expected the "first they came for" quotes.

what else can we expect in this thread?
dire warnings about "those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it"
warnings about being an ignorant pollyanna?
the lambs which are unaware that they are being readied to be slaughtered?
ps: it is amusing to see that those drama queens breast-beating about how india has become the most intolerant country in the world where no non-bhakht is safe and getting sick with worry about their safety in india, are now sympathizing about the fate of ignorant brownskins in 'murica. apparently, now trump is a bigger villain compared to the cuddly fuzzy warm modi. hahaha.

My dear man, you are a source of amusement and no more. Save your meager wit and sarcasm - might come in handy on your next commute.

No matter how "americanized" you are, your brown skin makes you an outsider. Unlike European immigrants, we cannot "blend in". Nobody is forcing us to live here, we can leave any time we wish. Just ask yourself how ugly things would be if Africans started settling in India and started taking up highly paid jobs.

thanks for your advice but you should worry more about how your company's business model is collapsing and how you cannot make as many visits to 'murica than my commute.

interesting...almost all nations are jingoistic to varying degrees which is kind of almost normal, accepted, at least tacitly, by themselves and by the rest of the world; but then, that is not applicable to US of A, which is touted as the only large country of "immigrants".

also, why selectively africans? indians are quite savvy in distinguishing varying subtle shades of differences in skin color and other features of 'aliens'.

"If Trump wants an Indian Sec of State, how about Tonto?" Coulter tweeted to her over one million followers.

Tonto is a fictional character, an ugly caricature of a grammar-challenged Native American, who was the loyal sidekick to the Texas Ranger who fought outlaws in the American Old West.

Aside from Coulter's Tonto barb, she earlier told Fox News that Haley was a "bimbo" and Trump should deport Haley while vetting immigrants.

CD,

Do you think Steve Bannon does not know the actual numbers? It is his audience that do know the numbers and feel his lie is evidence of USA being lost to them.

A friend who works at TCS told me two things will help you to climb up the ladder at TCS - you need to be a Tambrahm and you must love curd rice.

their business model(and oothers like infosys,wipro) is based on abusing the h-1/l-1 visa systems. they can't get away with that anymore. hence, the angst.
it seems already they are cutting down on expense accounts based on the drinkman's lack of international roaming for his phone as indicated on the other thread.
