Media Uninterested in First Korean Woman in Congress... Because She's Republican
The media loves firsts.
It’s obsessively promoting the first gay governor. The first two Muslim anti-Semitic women in the House, one of whom is accused of marrying her brother (the media obviously isn’t mentioning that part), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest elected dimwit.
It’s oddly uninterested in the first Korean-American woman in the House.
Well, not so oddly. Rep. Young Kim is a Republican.
Kim, 55, would be the first Korean-American woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives if she defeats her Democratic opponent Gil Cisneros for the open seat in California’s 39th Congressional District in Tuesday’s election.
Kim, who immigrated to the U.S. from her birth country of South Korea in 1975, is running neck in neck with Cisneros for the seat being vacated by Republican Rep. Ed Royce.
The race isn’t final, as of this writing, but Kim is in the lead. And the media is ignoring her.
Women winning political races is only “historic” when they’re lefties. Minorities winning races is only historic when they’re… lefties. And Kim is both.
