Asians are "invasive"

It's official. It is now racist to refer to Asian people as "Asian". People whose heritage stems from what used to be known as "the Orient" or "Asia" should henceforth be referred to as "Invasive":

Finally, after years of oppression, Asian carp can finally breath a sigh of relief. Following the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s lead, The Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee announced that they will now refer to Asian carp as “invasive carp”. 

Amongst those pushing for the name to be changed was Minnesota state senator Foung Hawj who considered “Asian carp” to be offensive, or even racist. ABC7 News reported that Hawj received applause at an Asian-American conference when it was announced that the fish would be gifted a new name: “It’s a nuisance, a small thing, but it can resonate greatly,” Hawj said.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service was the first to designate the species “invasive carp”, doing so in April. The Asian Carp Regional Coordinating Committee are expected to make the name change official in early August.

Please be careful to use this totally inclusive and not-offensive language in the future.

How are we to refer to an "invasive" carp that resides in a stock pond in China?

Blogger basementhomebrewer July 16, 2021 5:55 AM  

To do the obvious joke, IT used to be a great field to get into, but now it is full of invasive workers.

Invasive-American has a nice ring to it...

So, they are Invasians now?

Blogger MonsoonBear July 16, 2021 5:58 AM  

I guess I'll just keep calling them slant carp then

Blogger Gregory the Tall July 16, 2021 6:13 AM  

It is great that you are still allowed to call animals and plants "invasive".
In Europe for at least 30 years now this plant has wreaked havoc with native flora (from Wikipedia):
Reynoutria japonica, synonyms Fallopia japonica and Polygonum cuspidatum, is a species of herbaceous perennial plant in the knotweed and buckwheat family Polygonaceae.[1][2] It is commonly known as Asian knotweed[3] or Japanese knotweed. It is native to East Asia in Japan, China and Korea. In North America and Europe, the species has successfully established itself in numerous habitats, and is classified as a pest and invasive species in several countries.

A local populist politician was pilloried for using the term "Asian Invasion" back in the nineties. Very mellifluous, had to be stopped.

Blogger Daniele Grech Pereira July 16, 2021 6:25 AM  

Ontario had a "racism" problem with Asian anglers being pushed off of docks into lakes. Why? Because they ruined the fish populations worse than the natives who spray their lures with WD40 to strip-mine walleye. Literally an invasive species worse than the invasive carp.

Blogger Silent Draco July 16, 2021 7:00 AM  

So, an IT department overrun with south invasives? Yes, this could be most useful.

This renaming indicates a deeper movement; I think it signifies the depth of influence and control to which the Chinese have penetrated: we have been intellectually, socially, and politically colonized.

Blogger MNW July 16, 2021 7:37 AM  

Does this mean that we should replace any ethnic group with "invasive"?

I am looking forward to cling all the Indian H1Bs "invasive tech workers"

Blogger Mr.MantraMan July 16, 2021 7:55 AM  

The mighty Western man colonized by words, or as Swearengen put it "Jew babble" and the writer of Deadwood knew his stuff David Milch is jewish himself.

I take it by the breakup of 2033 the USF&W service will be auctioning off the last of America's crown jewels to some backward assed Asians or Africans for "medicine" thanks to the marvels of convergence. Thank you Ms. Fat Waddler social justice activist, and can I get a job plucking feathers out of bald eagles?

Also, the asian (carp): billions of them, but they are a protected minority.

Look out! It's an Invasian!

OK, I could live with it.

Blogger Canadian Warlord July 16, 2021 8:32 AM  

Still, we need descriptors to show which kind of Invasive Asians are being referred to:
Invasive Japs, Invasive Chinks, Invasive Gooks, Invasive Charlies, Invasive Flips, and what can we call Invasive Thais? Invasive Tuk-Tuks? Lady-boys is too vague these days.

Blogger teemac July 16, 2021 8:48 AM  

so a chinese badger is ok as long as it stays at home. makes sense.

Asian carps about Asian carp.

Blogger Kelly July 16, 2021 9:09 AM  

That is hilarious. One of my passions is native plant gardening, and where I live, many of the worst invasive wild plants are either Japanese or Chinese. I wonder if they'll change their names too. Of course one of the worst offenders is English ivy so that name will stay, no doubt.


I wonder whatever came of the story last year about people receiving random seed packets from China that they hadn't ordered. My thought at the time was new invasives, since we have so many already, but never heard any follow up.

You read it that way too I see...

Carp: to find fault or complain querulously

Seems to be a lot of that going around, regardless of national origin.

Blogger The Masked Menace July 16, 2021 9:29 AM  

I used tp admire Asians. Not sure why. Maybe it was all those "Charlie Chan" reruns I watched as a kid or those books I read on ancient Chinese dynasties. Now I realize they're just as petty and crazy as most everyone else on this planet.

On the topic of Asians. So many Swedish men are marrying Thai women that some govt ministry of social work wants an investigation to prevent Swedish men from having Thai wives. Its gotta be peak hypergamy

Blogger Nihil Dicit July 16, 2021 10:43 AM  

"Invasive" probably won't last long either. I mean, these fish are just here because they want a better life for their family, right? Who are we to judge and condemn them? These carp are as American as you and me, probably even more so!

Blogger Homesteader July 16, 2021 10:51 AM  

Ah- the relentless language wars of the Vile Left.

Where I live, the granola hippies got upset about “Digger pine”, a taller variant. Their story of why it’s
no longer acceptable is the usual blather- “something something native tribe derogatory something something”

I find “Ignore” or “FUCK OFF” to be two easy default settings to such blather. Digger pines they will remain on the Homesteader place.

Never, under any circumstances, allow another human being or group to control what you say; it is the first step in controlling what you do. To offend the indignant is our God-given right, and joy, like telling a Karen she looks great with her mask on.

As Heritage Americans, defiance is in our cultural DNA- embrace it. The power of “NO” is a wonderful thing.

Blogger John Best. July 16, 2021 11:03 AM  

They aren't Chinese anymore, they are invasive's.

Blogger Skyler the Weird July 16, 2021 11:07 AM  

I'm noticing invite the Third World means you get the Third World good and hard. The work ethic of the customer service and support techs in India and the PI are starting to rub off on their American counterparts who are increasingly uncaring about whether you get fixed correctly or not.

I love reminding the "Save the Bees" people that the honeybee is not native to North America.

who spray their lures with WD40 to strip-mine walleye

Could someone enlighten me as to what this means? If anything? How does using wd40 help with catching walleye? Or, was this some sort of satire to rile up the natives?

@30. Pytor, re. Swedish Feminist Government Investigating Men's Choices
I guess Swedish men no longer want to listen to rape fantasy LARPing as official policy political lectures at dinner every day, and just want their fucking plate of fish? Or maybe they prefer Fish Pie as dessert instead of the Cold Shoulder!

Blogger CarpeOro July 16, 2021 11:59 AM  

I guess Must-Go-Back Carp doesn't roll of the tounge well enough. But perhaps if Foung went back to China and said it there it would sound better.

Blogger Gypsy July 16, 2021 1:42 PM  

Another example of Minnesota "loonacy".
@36 I've heard this from old-timers. I guess WD 40 use to have fish oil and was thought to attract fish.
On the subject of Vibrancy here in MN, I wish someone would do a story of the "excluded provider lists" for MN healthcare programs and the vast over-representation of African names on that list. The Churchians thought it would be a good idea to train all these Somalians they brought over to work in long term care. Turns out not so good and very bad for Boomers. Ha! Anyway, demographics will keep the crisis in long term care going until the Boomers are dead and it's not just vibrancy, it's lack of staff. Already in some places the care is so bad the pillow would be a blessing. But just try to explain to a Boomer why so few feel the obligation to care.

Asian carps are 'refugee carps' than 'invasive carps'.

Idiot Americans brought them over here.

Same with German carps that took over so many lakes.

But I hear Asian carp is good for eating.

Silver Lining of this dark clownworld cloud:

When the Uk and European press cover the ongoing rape crimes committed by non-assimilating Middle Eastern "migrants", they can no longer say "the suspect is Asian" but will now be forced by The Woke Religion to say "the suspect is an Invader".

And if you can deal with the subtitles, you should subscribe to VIKI - Rakuten some month. I choose the $9.99 a month option, and it is on ROKU. Especially the Chinese are really not politically correct, making fun of each others eyes and more. It is an eye opener, no joke intended.
