Rosie O'Donnell's Racist 'Ching Chong' Chinese

When it comes to the defamation of gays and lesbians The View's Rosie O'Donnell is the first one to play sensitivity cop, most notably her patrolling of Kelly Ripa's bout with Clay Aiken, but apparently her hypersensitivity doesn't apply to those of Asian descent. On the December 5 edition of The View, O'Donnell universally mocked the Asian community when she attempted to feign a Chinese accent. Former Republican Senator Alfonse D'Amato was tried and executed by the liberal media for similarly making fun of O.J. Simpson Judge Lance Ito. So the question has to be asked where is that same liberal media now when one of their own is accused of making fun of a minority group? Video Clip: Real (416KB) or Windows (465 KB) Plus MP3 (73 KB)

The following remark, as transcribed by MRC's Megan McCormack, came during a discussion about Danny DeVito's now infamous intoxicated appearance:

Rosie O'Donnell: "The fact is that it's news all over the world. You know, you can imagine in China it's like, 'Ching chong, ching chong, Danny DeVito, ching chong chong chong chong, drunk, The View, ching chong."

A quick Google of the incident does reveal, this TV Guide blogger, was not amused.
