Jay Leno Apologizes For Decades of Jokes About The AAPI Community

Do you know what caused the Atlanta shooting?

It was decades of old jokes that Jay Leno made about Asians. Those jokes haven’t been forgotten. The Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA) has recorded and kept a list of all those old jokes and have been nursing that grievance against Leno for the past 15 years.

Variety:

“Late-night host and comedian Jay Leno has issued an apology for a series of jokes told over his career targeting Asian communities.

The apology comes after a nearly 15-year campaign from the activist group Media Action Network for Asian Americans (MANAA) for remarks as recent as Variety‘s 2020 report that Leno cracked about Koreans eating dog meat — a complaint that offended numerous players on the set of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.”

“At the time I did those jokes, I genuinely thought them to be harmless,” Leno said in a joint press release with MANAA leader Guy Aoki. “I was making fun of our enemy North Korea, and like most jokes, there was a ring of truth to them.” …

Entertainment and media has been increasingly vocal about and horrified by a wave of anti-Asian violence in the U.S., which many attributed to Trump era rhetoric and blaming China for the spread of the coronavirus. Last week, a lone gunman killed eight people at three spas in Atlanta. Six of the eight victims were Asian women, which has inspired rallies nationwide standing against hate crimes and supporting the AAPI community. …”

Seriously, it has been established by progressive activists that the comedy industry is a known pipeline to far-right extremism. Comedians have long mocked and ridiculed hyper sensitive progressive activists as tyrannical crybullies motivated by political correctness gone mad who are trying to stifle free speech and free expression. Jay Leno bending the knee over these hysterical attacks will undoubtedly embolden them. The long term goal is to get to the point where no one is allowed to have a career in the comedy industry who isn’t on message like Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel or John Oliver.

Note: Back in 2016, Donald Trump was elected president to own people like John Oliver. Progressive activists have a tendency to overestimate their size and influence.

  1. Asiatic goblin-men probably pose the greatest long term threat to Whites and their interests. The orcish hordes of the Indian sub-continent are a stain on the planet. Strangely, despite being uglier and smellier than Jews, they are somehow less loathesome.

  2. When one layer after another of society, and every medium thereof, surrenders to tyranny, under the guise of ‘progression’, it will fall to Rednecks, in every region, to correct the situation in a manner commensurate with it’s tactile experiencing.

  3. So the reason that Orientals are being attacked by violent black criminals is because of some jokes that Jay Leno made about North Korea on the Tonight Show ten years ago. Now it all makes sense.

    • I’ve seen Asians write posts and comments saying that it’s Whites who are assaulting them, raping their women, robbing them, and making disparaging remarks. It’s rather hard to believe. So one wonders where this is coming from.
      I’ve never seen any Asians being afraid in White neighborhoods.

  4. Political Correctness is our fanatical, Anti-White state religion.

    Fanatics have no sense of humor. Fanatics are incapable of laughing at themselves.

    Political Correctness is the death of comedy.

  5. When one layer after another of society, and every medium thereof, surrenders to tyranny, under the guise of ‘progression’, it will ultimately fall to Rednecks to correct the situation.

  6. Koreans DO eat dog meat, and by that I mean all of Korea, not just North Korea. It’s considered a delicacy, and they have breeding farms for it.

    • China does too. Cats too. It’s disgusting. So if Jay Leno made some wisecrack about that, why does he have to apologize? How is it insensitive?

    • Its bad enough they make that annoying K pop shit and then with the disgusting dog eating too. The dog eating is alot more worse in SK then NK ironically enough
