UNITY Within Grasp (against Beckel/Fox)!



   Exciting News!    UNITY is within grasp!
   Many Chinese-/Asian- American orgs. have agreed to work
together to get Beckel fired under the following principle:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
                      The Statement That Unite Us
   “We are united with a single purpose to achieve the resignation of
Robert Beckel or his firing from Fox News. Although each organization
may choose a different tactic, we are united with our common goal.
This mission transcends politics and partisanships and we will work with
all elected officials towards this goal.
   This alliance of the Chinese/Asian American organizations working
together will forge “a deterrent on anti-Chinese/Asian statements
broadcast by major U.S. news media.”
Respectfully Submitted, (in no particular order)

                          Strategy to Win This Battle
   This may be a difficult and long battle. Hence, here is the strategy
to ensure victory. For everyday that Beckel is not fired, we’ll use the time to
(1) forge UNITY of the Chinese-/Asian- American community, &
(2) organize a worldwide boycott of products advertised on “The Five”.
                                What You Can Do!
   Help expand this UNITY. We need and welcome leadership from China-
town orgs. and a few other well-known organizations. Don’t hesitate to
speak on our behalf. Tell them that joining this Coalition is a win-win
for them & our community. In a way, they isolate themselves, if they
still refuse after the news of this growing UNITY, and after repeated
direct and indirect approach from this Coalition to welcome them to help
lead us. Could they be marginalizing themselves?
   Help support the war chest of ANY of the above orgs. This is
another way to let Fox know that you are serious. 80-20 will publicize a
list of companies which are the biggest advertisers on “The Fire” in its
next e-newsletter.

Beckel's Hatred of Chinese MUCH Stronger than Shown Earlier



   The Huffington tape on the Beckel statement on 7/10/2014 should
have lasted 20 seconds longer. The tape cuts out, after a female
panelist said, “… should be on The Soup*.” Had it gone on, WE would
have heard:
   BECKEL: “Really, doesn't anybody worry about these
      people? Billions of them, and all they do is hack
      into our stuff. They send us cheap toys, all of
      which got lead in them. They kill kids.
   To verify, view transcript of the “The Five” of that day & scroll down
hundreds of lines to its very end.   Please note that
(1) Beckel could not possibly be thinking about China, since he said,
“. . . worry about these people? Billion of them . . . They kill kids.
(2) When he used the word “Billions”, obviously he was not just
thinking of China’s citizens, he included citizens of the other
nations worldwide who are of Chinese descent. They include Chinese
Americans, Chinese Canadians, Singaporeans, Chinese Australians,
Chinese Indonesians ... , etc.  Getting Alarmed? We should.
(3)They kill kids.” That is the ultimate demonization!
                          Getting Alarmed? We Should!
   GM made faulty ignition switches which caused the death of many
Americans. Indeed, GM intentionally didn’t report the facts till much later.
But, no one will ever accuse ALL GM employees as “killing Americans.”
   Beckel, with such hatred against Chinese race, should NOT be
on “The Five” program of Fox. When Fox refuses to fire him, then it
becomes Fox’s fault.
   80-20 wrote Fox president Roger Ailes on 7/21 urging him to fire
Beckel. Mr. Ailes hasn’t replied. Hence, we are compelled to act against Fox.
      80-20 calls for the worldwide BOYCOTT** of products of
       companies that advertise on “The Five” on Fox News.
   80-20 will NEVER abandon this demand. It will work with all
organizations, elected officials, and individuals who share the goal
of either getting Beckel to resign or Fox to fire him.
   Do your share! ACT!
(i) Forward this email to your friends in the US and elsewhere.
(ii) Volunteer your time and money to help 80-20 build a war chest.
(iii) Talk to organizations you know to induce them to contact and
         UNITE
with 80-20 in this campaign.
   Many recent immigrants sense danger, especially those who work in
high tech areas. 80-20 shall come to your aid.
   DON’T be like the Jews in Nazi Germany who didn’t speak out
UNTIL TOO LATE.
Respectfully,

A Strong Press Release



                  
(7/22/2014) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
      
Contact person: S. B. Woo 302-366-0259
Subject: Why the U.S. Media Treats Sterling & Beckel so Differently?
80-20 PAC, by far the largest Asian Am. political action committee, announced
today that it shall unite with all organizations, elected officials and individuals to
help achieve the goal of getting Robert Beckel fired by Fox. Beckel stated on
Fox TV “The Five” on 7/10/2014:
          “The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national
           security of the U.S.,” and used a “C word”.
Click here to hear his racist, xenophobic statement, expressed with such hateful
body language and hand gestures. He seems bent on inciting a race war against
the Chinese people.
Just several months ago, ABC reviewed a taped Jimmy Kimmel segment during
which a kid blurted out “kill all Chinese” and let it air? Will ABC do the same, if
the word “Chinese” was replaced by Blacks or Jews? Now Beckel, as a news
analyst, publicly stated the above.
The Chinese American community is determined to stop such statements against
us, once and for all. Otherwise, we’ll be like the Jews in Nazi Germany who
eventually faced a very hostile home community.
S. B. Woo, 80-20 President & former Lt. Governor of Delaware says, “We are fully
aware that the U.S. is not Nazi Germany. On the other hand, if such statements
can come against us again and again without severe repercussions to the
offender, then the Chinese- and perhaps East-Asian-Americans will suffer
psychologically, physically and career wise.”
Clipper's owner Donald Sterling was banned from NBA for life and forced to sell
the team for his racial slur against blacks in a private conversation.
In comparison, Beckel called all people of Chinese descent “the single biggest
threat to the national security of the US” and used a “C word” in a public
broadcast! ” Why is our media so quiet on Beckel?” Woo asks. “Where are the
Asian Am. journalists, for heaven’s sake?” [meaning those who work in the mainstream
media. Added by SB Woo]
People of Chinese descent worldwide are watching how fair the media in U.S.A. is.
Is the U. S. media using double standard for different races? (The end)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
      How 80-20’s Call to Action & Press Release made a Difference!
   The community has really responded. Thanks to them, the following has occurred
1) The MSN poll on whether Bob Beckel should resign was losing by a 30% to 40% 2
     nights ago. This morning it is leading by 59% to 26%.
     Click on http://specials.msn.com/more-polls.aspx
2) After the press release, CNN got in touch with S. B. Woo.
3) Chinese American residing in China have already gotten in touch with S.B.
     They are also reaching out to Chinese-Ams in Hong Kong and Macau. All
     of you can help reach people of Chinese descent internationally.
     Help make this ugly anti-Chinese broadcast known INTERNATIONALLY.
                                What else YOU can do!
A) Continue to send email to Roger Ailes, Pres. of Fox News via roger.ailes@foxnews.com
     and Comments@foxnews.com . Use your own words or state:
      “Subject: Fire Beckel or I’ll boycott Fox
       Fire Bob Beckel for the sake of ethnic harmony,
       world peace and your own reputation. If you do,
       I’ll remember and respect you for it. If you don’t,
       I’ll stop watching FOX & choose CNN instead.
                                  Your name, city, sate & TITLE.”
B) An CivilRights Wechat Group has set up petition site: http://www.weidb.com/ptbecke
     Please go sign up.
C) THANK all the orgs. and individuals who have responded to 80-20 Initiative’s call
     to together protect the life and liberty of Chinese Americans.

CALL TO ACTION



   WANT TO HELP STRIKE A BLOW to create the “deterrent
effect
” that will prevent future derogatory depictions of people of
Chinese descent?
   UNITE!  Demand that FOX TV FIRE this talking head who on a
public broadcast said:
     "The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national
      security of the U.S.
,” a talking head on FOX TV said on
      7/10. "They have been, they will be and they can
      wait, they're very patient. Do you know what we just
      did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a
      bunch of Chinamen -- er, Chinese people -- how to do
      computers and then they go back to China and hack
      into us."
    Click here to hear the racist xenophobic statement, expressed with
such hateful body language and hand gestures. He seems bent on
inciting a race war against Chinese. He had damaged grievously
the psychological, physical and career welfare of Chinese-Ams.
   For such a serious offense, an apology is NOT enough.
He must be FIRED.
   Clipper's owner Donald Sterling was banned from NBA for life and
forced to sell the team for his racial slur against black in a private
conversation.
This talking head called ALL people of Chinese
descent “the single biggest threat to the national security of the US”
and used a “C word” in a public broadcast!
   America came down hard on Sterling, as it should. Why is my
country so silent on this talking head, Fox TV and Mr. Murdock??
   80-20 shall never quit in this demand. We want this to be
the LAST such statements in major TV channels — establishing
a “deterrent effect”. Otherwise, frequent statements against
people of Chinese descent will occur. Our nation could become
so psychologically conditioned to implicitly and explicitly act
AGAINST the rightful interests of Chinese- and Asian-Americans.
   We have a huge amount of tools ready to call this to Fox’s
attention. See Footnote 1.
   For now, however, we’ll try REASONING. Please send email to
Roger Ailes, Pres. of Fox News Channel
     roger.ailes@foxnews.com   and    Comments@foxnews.com .
Use your own words or state:
      “Subject: Fire Beckel or I’ll boycott Fox
       Fire Bob Beckel for the sake of ethnic harmony,
       world peace and your own reputation. I'll NEVER
       abandon this demand. If you do fire Beckel, I'll
       remember and respect you for it. If you don’t,
       I’ll help create a boycott of products of Fox
       advertizers by Chinese people worldwide.
                                  Your name, city and sate”
   Do it now! This may not work. So start organizing your own
community and friends and get ready for a big and long battle.
Thank you.

Footnote 1 — to get Fox’s attention
  • asking advertisers on Fox TV to stop their buys. If they don’t,
       we’ll call for a worldwide boycott of such products, by all
       persons of Chinese descent. Names of all advertisers on
       Fox TV in all big cities are being collected,
  • boycotting Fox while selecting CNN as our news channel,
  • demonstrating against Fox TV headquarters in CA, & Fox News
       in Rockefeller Center in NYC.

Chinaman, Xenophobia, a Statement Against all Chinese



     "The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national
      security of the U.S.
,” a talking head on FOX TV said 4
      days ago. "They have been, they will be and they can
      wait, they're very patient. Do you know what we just
      did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a
      bunch of Chinamen -- er, Chinese people -- how to do
      computers and then they go back to China and hack
      into us."
    Click here to hear the above statement, see his hateful gesture,
and decide for yourself, whether he used the word Chinaman by
accident, or was just baiting us. It is the worst racist statement
I’ve ever heard, not just the use of “Chinaman.” He actually accused
the Chinese people worldwide as the “single biggest threat to the
national security of the US.” Is he trying to inflame a race war? How
can Fox TV afford to employ such a talking head?
   Will such statements on TV hurt the mental health & physical
safety of your family members? How about your career if you are
aiming for a management position?
   This talking head on FOX TV didn’t specifically say anything bad about
Chinese Ams or Asian Ams, but will this kind of racist xenophobia spill
over to hurt you and your family? You bet!
   Remember that Vincent Chin, a Chinese Am., was killed by two
unemployed Detroit autoworkers with a baseball bat, because he
was taken to be a Japanese. Remember this famous message,
credited to Paster Niemoller who faced extremism in pre-WWII Germany:
"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I
was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionist, and I did
not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for
the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they
came for me, there was no one left to speak for me.
   Concerned? You should. Speak up & act NOW!
   80-20 seeks your input regarding what actions to take.
Click here to post your input on the Poster Board. Above all, we
also want to know what action you will take personally. Actions are
louder than words.
   If we don’t STOP such xenophobic advocacy by a TV talking head now,
it shall spread and get worse? Don’t wait till it is too late, as was the
case for Paster Niemollar.
   Want to FIGHT it? What with? Does the above news make you realize
the reason for 80-20 EF’s SELF project? To donate, click here.
