We would like to draw everyone’s attention to another irresponsible article in regard to the ridiculous accusations against Asians in regard to the consumption of serving human fetuses as food in Asia here.
“Believers” in the “fetus soup” stories have been severely “duped” and by allowing themselves to “buy into” this, they give credibility to the orchestrator’s theory; that being, most westerners are exceedingly racist toward Asians(and yes, I realize that this was a racist act to begin with on his part, but it makes us no better for promoting it). Many people have been suckered in by the movie “Dumplings” and the work of an artist who wanted to prove how racist the west was toward Asians. He knew that people would fall for it.
The stills in blogs that you find on this “subject” are either taken from the horror film, “Dumplings” or from said artist who generated a show using either the bodies of other animals or fake science-fiction-style prop bodies, along with prop human baby heads. He then photographed himself, as well as others, eating the animal-parts and baby mannequin-head soup. To reiterate, he did this to prove racism against Asians was so strong that westerners would fall for anything. Look up the movie Dumplings here and go to Snopes here where they discuss this story’s falsehood. I am sorry to inform “believers” that Asians are not cooking “fetus soup” and serving it in corner restaurants.
Spreading this stuff about, as though it were real, is no different than blogging about the infamous, Freddy Krueger and insisting that if you fall asleep tonight, you are going to be hacked to bits by a crazed “bogeyman”. Again, you must somehow realize that if a story like this in regard to humans eating “fetus soup” were true, CBS, ABC, NBC, CSNBC, MSNBC, FOX, Al Jazeera and every other major news network on the planet would be broadcasting about the issue everywhere. Their investigative teams are much more well funded than activists and there is no way that they haven’t looked into the story.
Please tell the “believers” to get a grip. They are making the rest of us look fairly ridiculous. Of course, there will always be someone who will continue swearing “up and down” that this is a true story. We would advise them not to believe everything that you read. For those who consider themselves “activists” and spread this story…rasism is not activism. Activism requires research and investigation.
