White supremacists zoom bomb Pilipino Workers Center

A self-described racist and misogynist zoom bombed a webinar produced by the Pilipino Workers Center in Southern California.

Rep Adam Schiff had wrapped up speaking during a webinar on COVID-19 resources sponsored by the non-profit Pilipino Workers Center when suddenly someone could be heard in the background throwing f-bombs and racist slurs.

A shadowy looking man in a hoody and sunglasses appeared, interrupting a Filipina woman asking a question about unemployment benefits.

“Hey, b*tch, shut the f*ck up,” the man could be heard saying. “All immigrants should be deported…I am racist. I am misogynist. I f*cking hate immigrants.”

The coward disguised his voice using an electronic filter.

“Our Zoom feed was hacked by (someone) who shouted racial epithets on screen and taunted our members with the Nazi salute (“Sieg Heil!”) and pro-Trump messages,” Alex De Ocampo said of the Pilipino Workers Center in Los Angeles.

He urged everyone to share this video of this incident with the hashtag #racismisavirus. He also asked supporters to sign a petition demanding Attorney General Bill Barr hold perpetrators of hate crimes accountable.

Zoom urges anyone holding a meeting using its platform to protect it from intruders by requiring a passport and approval from a moderator to enter the meeting.

  1. RE: White supremacists zoom bomb Pilipino Workers Center: The dufus who hacked your Zoom conference isn’t a Republican and Republicans are not in the business of party crashing meetings of significant importance to any single ethnic group.

    If the left genuinely espouse to the belief an entire group should not be blamed for the actions of a few radicals among their number, as they have often argued as such while defending Blacks and Muslims using this line of reasoning, then the same considerations should also be afforded to other groups such as white law enforcement officers and supporters of a political party as well.

    Conversely, if the left are not consistent in applying the same considerations to all groups regardless where said group rate on the social desirability barometer, then it is safe to say they do not genuinely espouse to this belief except under certain selective conditions.

    Having said that and contradicting myself in the process, white supremacy groups should not be afforded that consideration.

    I hope they catch this “mike-oscar-foxtrot-oscar”.
