Six Senate Republicans are trying to block legislation that would help combat the rise in hate crimes and violence against Asian Americans fueled by the coronavirus pandemic and a former president and members of his party who insist on calling it the "Chinese virus."

Late Wednesday afternoon the Senate voted 92-6 to begin debate on the legislation, known as the "COVID–19 Hate Crimes Act." Six Republicans voted against moving the legislation forward, in an attempt to block its passage.

The six are Senators Tom Cotton (AR), Ted Cruz (TX), Josh Hawley (MN), Roger Marshall (KS), Rand Paul (KY), and Tommy Tuberville (AL).

How to make a life-long enemy of their caucus leader, married to a rich and powerful Asian American woman who has held two Cabinet posts. Mitch McConnell is NOT a good person to make an enemy of. Of course, I'm surprised that Rick Scott, and Cindy Hyde-Smith didn't join them. They are DIRECTLY attacking McConnell's wife and at least two of their fellow Senators, Maizie Hirano and Tammy Duckworth.
