For those paying attention, the Democratic Party’s embrace of inclusion, respect and acceptance of those who are different, screeches to a grinding halt should that person hold a differing political view.
Perpetually aggrieved liberals take offense over the slightest transgression, as we saw when some on the right, mispronounced Sen. Kamala Harris’ first name, going so far as the claim this was intentional racism.
Yet, when former California Assemblywoman Young Kim defeated Rep. Gil Cisneros, D-Calif., the Korean-American Republican was mocked and ridiculed over her name, prompting actor James Woods to call out Democrats for their hypocritical message of “healing.”
“A reminder to those Democrats who support ‘healing,’ but respond to this historic moment by making jokes about Young Kim’s name: she is the first Korean-American woman ever elected to the House of Representatives,” Woods tweeted.

The outspoken conservative actor’s observation came the same day tens of thousands of Trump supporters converged on Washington to show support for the president and to express concerns over the potentially fraudulent outcome of the 2020 election.
And while Joe Biden has been pushing a message of unity and coming together since believing he has been elected the next president, the Democrat was dead silent when a violent Antifa/Black Lives Matter mob began preying on mostly women and elderly Trump supporters who had become isolated.
As for the “joking” about Kim’s name, here’s a small sampling from Twitter:
Did she have a lot of Young Money

Young Kim.. I can’t seem to find her rap album on iTunes.

Think how awkward it will be when she introduces herself as an old woman. “Hi, I’m Young Kim”…… No ma’am, you most certainly are not.

Woods was not alone in rebuking the “disgusting” responses to Kim’s name, as seen in the tweet below suggesting that it’s apparently okay because the politician is a Republican.
Reading the responses in the tweet below, it’s disgusting to see people make fun of Young Kim for her name. She’s the first Korean-American woman elected to Congress, but it’s okay to make fun because she’s a Republican? https://t.co/KRSAdRlWRK

Here’s a sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:
Finally! 2018 was stolen from her, 2020 she prevails! Congratulations @YoungKimCA a well deserved win!

Democrats are vile creeps

The Democrats’ position is that racism is bad, except if a non-white person is a Republican, in which case it’s okay to be racist towards him or her.

And I thought the Republican Party was dead in California. Congratulations for setting me straight.

I’m from Minnesota, donated $25 to her campaign, but it took out another $25 the following week. I sent her campaign a complaint. Young Kim personally called me and we spoke for 10 minutes, she refunded the $25. I was so impressed that I donated $100!

They say “healing” but they really mean they want the opposition “to heel”.
