‘I will continue to warn Americans about dangerous China’:Bob Beckel

‘I will continue to warn Americans about dangerous China’:Bob Beckel

Bob Beckel, the host of Fox News Channel's "The Five" program, has declined to apologize for his offensive comments about Chinese people.

Using racial slurs against Chinese on air last week, Beckel said that Chinese computer science students come to study in the U. S. only to pose a security threat to Americans. He added that Americans should be cautious about Chinese because there were billions of them. They hack into Americans' stuff and send cheap toys to kill American kids.

The comments attracted severe criticism from the Chinese community as well as some American politicians, who said they were deeply offended and that Beckel should resign immediately.

But Beckel refused to resign and stressed that he would continue to warn Americans that China was posing a security threat to the U. S.

Responding to criticism, he said, "I will continue to warn the American people about how dangerous China is to the U. S. security and to our business community. To those who were offended, I am sorry."

Judy Chu, a Democratic U. S. representative from California, criticized Beckel saying she was deeply offended by his comments about Chinese people.

Ted Lieu, who is running for the U. S. House of Representatives as a Democrat, said he was one of those 'Chinamen' with 'Oriental' eyes who immigrated to the U. S. and majored in computer science.
