What is the Tunnel Wall?

.........................A timely collection of conservative articles about corrosive liberal influences on politics and culture in America. Once a no-Trumper, the Tunnel Dweller is keenly aware that this most effective President is all that stands between us and our being ruled by those who have contempt for our nation and her history. This is NOT my father's Democrat Party and we must fear it as we once feared the Soviet Union. ......................

Crime Against Asians Isn’t Due to White Supremacy

Never, never believe CNN or any source with the letters N,B,C in their name. They will leave you less informed than before you read their reports.TD
The Guardian

 Commentary Magazine "Everyone knows that there is currently an ongoing wave of white-supremacist attacks against Asian Americans—but there isn’t. Following a genuine rise in violent crimes targeting Asians in 2020, major media outlets such as CNN have been consistently beating the drum of “pro-Trump” anti-Asian violence for months, while large urban marches have been organized around the theme of blacks and Asians together taking on the “white supremacy” allegedly threatening both communities. A few hours going through relevant data, however, puts the lie to this narrative.

. . . "Still, the idea that violence against Asians  is the work of violent Trump supporters and fellow travelers—MAGA-hatted Proud Boys and the like—has become axiomatic. On March 18, 2021, CNN.com’s Stephen Collinson provided a comprehensive summary in a piece containing distinct subheads labeled “THE WHITE SUPREMACIST THREAT” and “HOW MUCH IS TRUMP TO BLAME?” Collinson summed up the nature of today’s violence against Asians accurately (“lives being taken”) before going on to describe Asian Americans as facing “a torrent of dangerous and racially motivated rhetoric by national figures on a cultural crusade” and as experiencing “the agony of yet another minority group left to question its place in America…amid cresting white nationalism.” . . .
