OMG According To Libs You're A Racist If You Compliment Someone
Guess what? Iowa Senator Charles Grassley is a raging bigot, according to the liberal cancel nazis. Why? Because he gave a genuine compliment to a Korean-American woman.
That's right, the same brilliant minds who want to categorize our students in the public school system by the color of their skin, now claim Grassley is a racist for complimenting Lucy Koh for her recent appointment to the federal court of appeals. Grassley made the mistake of saying that Koreans have a strong work ethic, and BOOM—The left exploded in a frenzy of ridiculousness.
"What you said about your Korean background reminded me a lot of what my daughter-in-law of 45 years has said: 'If I've learned anything from Korean people, it's a hard work ethic. And how you can make a lot out of nothing,'" the Iowa senator said. "So I congratulate you and your people."
"Thank you," Koh replied.

"Even as a compliment, assigning any trait to a whole community is the definition of prejudice. Treating all members of a group as the same invites mistreatment. It may not be the same incitement to violence seen in other slurs, but is harmful nonetheless," California Rep Judy Chu tweeted.
I should also note that the rest of the nameless libs on Twitter agreed with Chu, against all logic.
Grassley's Office put out a statement in response to that ridiculous claim:
"Sen. Grassley’s intent was to be complementary, not to insult anyone," Grassley's spokesman, Taylor Foy, said in a statement provided to the Des Moines Register. "Chairman Durbin invited Judge Koh to share the inspiring story of her family’s immigration to the United States. Sen. Grassley shared that he has similarly been inspired by the immigration story of his daughter-in-law, who is also Korean-American."
So, the left has come to this; pushing racist agendas like the Critical Race Theory that pre-judges the character of each student by the color of their skin while condemning others who would build someone one up that dares to mention their nationality.
