‘Asians In The Library’ And ‘God Is So Good,’ DISGRASIAN-style

March 15th, 2011 | 12 comments | Posted by Jen & Diana

As some of you know, our site was down yesterday.

And unlike most Monday mornings, where the most disturbing thing greeting us first thing is our weekend hangovers, there was so much bad shit going on in the world.

In other words, so much bad shit to blog about.

There was the ongoing tragedy taking place in post-earthquake, post-tsunami Japan.

There was the ongoing tragedy taking place on Twitter, enacted by randos and well-known players alike–50 Cent, Gilbert Gottfried, the WNBA’s Cappie Poindexter, Family Guy writer Alec Sulkin–that made fun of the ongoing tragedy in Japan.

And, of course, there were also those two viral videos. The one about Asians in the library from UCLA student Alexandra Wallace, and the one about God punishing Japan with the earthquake because it’s a country of atheists (which has since been revealed as a hoax and the work of a troll).

Like we said: SO MUCH BAD SHIT.

So how, in a moment like this, could the Internet betray us and leave us without a forum to air out our grievances? Normally, we’d blame evil gnomes–which a friend suggested look exactly like Arcade Fire–but this was different. This was bigger.

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Limbaugh Supporter Faxes Death Threats To CA State Senator Leland Yee

January 28th, 2011 | 5 comments | Posted by Diana

Whoever said that a lazy racist isn’t an effective one?

Last week, Rush Limbaugh’s ching-chong impression of Hu Jintao caused a major stir. Some people were shocked, some weren’t surprised, heaps were deeply offended, scads joined in on a collective smack of the forehead. More definitively, a group of Asian-American lawmakers, led by Sen. Leland Yee (D-CA), demanded an apology for the comments.

Limbaugh–always a victim of the left–called his racist tirade “a service.” But I call it a big, sweaty, hairy back off of which even more brainless (Imagine!), more hateful, more ignorant, more racist dickburgers saw the opportunity to leapfrog, into a space much more dark, even dangerous.

Take for example, a death threat that was sent by one of those ignorant dickburgers to Sen. Yee, by fax, on Wednesday, in defense of Limbaugh:

Lost in Translasian

Saturday is a slow news day. Exhibit A:

“Chinglish on Beijing’s signs shocks foreigners

“What strikes foreign visitors the most in Beijing may not be the interesting customs, unique architecture and enticing dishes, but the Chinglish on signs…

To Jill, an Australian student in Beijing, the Chinglish translations she has collected serve as a chronic laughing stock.

‘It is not too difficult for the foreigners who know some Chinese to understand the Chinglish although the translations are very funny,’ said Jill, who has taken almost 100 pictures of the ridiculous translations.

Oh Jill. You little Aussie whoreippersnapper. Your misguided sense of cultural superiority makes me want to puke Your interest in other cultures is to be lauded. Taking pictures of Chinglish signage? Very I’m over it original. Now, do you mind if I ask you a cultural question–Were you spawned by kangaroos? Koalas, maybe? And how much Chinese do you know exactly? Is that English you’re speaking or just the sound of your ass farting? Enough to translate this, perhaps:
