Jay Chen, LA-OC Congressional Candidate, Gets Another Anti-Asian Rant And Threat of Violence

Jay Chen's congressional campaign tells OC Weekly that it received yet another racist, anti-Asian rant over the weekend and this one threatened physical violence against the American-born Democrat who is hoping to unseat incumbent Republican Rep. Ed Royce.

We told you last week about a disgraced Costa Mesa businessman sending Chen, who is of Taiwanese ancestry, an email loaded with racist terms like "chink" and "slant-eyed gook" and "slope."

The latest attack was also voiced by a person of outstanding intellect and maturity:

"Hey, you little Chinese fucker," said the man, who voiced support for Royce manliness (no joke) and then went on to call Chen a "little shit" and "a piece of crap."


Chen campaign manager Sam Liu said they received the telephone message on Saturday from a person who blocked his number.

You can listen to the cowardly bigot whine here:
