“She’s really using a wedge issue about affirmative action to stir up fear and dissent among Asian voters who would otherwise vote for Democrats,” Ms. Kalvoda said. “It’s straight out of the Trump playbook: to divide us.”
She is absolutely right. Rather than reaching out to Asian Americans in order to work with them, they are creating a wedge issue in an attempt to fear monger. It is reminiscent of Republican attempts to insinuate that Hispanic immigrants are a threat to African American employment. What’s obvious is that the only tool Republicans have these days is division.
