在2014年7月10日的The Five节目中,当谈到谁造成对美国的威胁时,Box Beckel说道:

“The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S. They have been, they will be and they can wait, they’re very patient. Do you know what we just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen — er, Chinese people — how to do computers and then they go back to China and hack into us.”

译文:中国人是对美国国家安全的最大单一威胁。中国人到美国,他们曾经是、他们将会是、他们能等待、他们很有耐心。你知道我们做了什么吗?像往常一样,我们把他们带到这里,我们教一帮中国佬(Chinamen)的 – 呃,中国人 – 如何做电脑,然后他们回到中国,并非法侵入我们(的计算机系统)。

去年Bob Beckel还曾经在节目里说他的“眼睛肿了,把我搞得像东方人”。

刘云平表示:作为一个美国华人,对Bob Beckel的言论表示震惊。他说:

“I am one of those ‘Chinamen’ with ‘Oriental’ eyes that immigrated to America and majored in computer science. I also served on active duty in the United States Air Force and continue to serve my country in the Reserves. And today, as an American and as a California State Senator, I call on Mr. Beckel to resign.”

译文:我是一个“中国佬”、且有着“东方人”的眼睛、移民到美国而且学了计算机专业。我还曾经是美国空军现役部队的一员而且现在作为后备役继续服务这个国家。今天作为一个美国人和加州州参议员,我要求Beckel先生辞职。

“America is great because anyone can be an American. Our country is the strongest in the world because of our diversity. Unfortunately, Fox News host Bob Beckel does not understand what it means to be an American.”

译文:美国之所以伟大是因为每个人可以成为美国人。我们国家之所以成为世界上最伟大的国家是因为她的多元化。不幸的是,Fox News主持人Bob Beckel不明白作为一个美国人的涵义。

“But Mr. Beckel’s comments are more than just racist and stupid. His ignorant views are dangerous because it is precisely those types of extreme xenophobic and racist views that caused our government to massively violate constitutional rights during World War II and force more than 100,000 Americans into internment camps.”

译文:Beckel先生的言论超出了种族歧视和愚蠢的范畴,他愚昧的观点是危险的,因为它正是那些排外的种族歧视观点导致我们的政府在二战期间大规模的破坏公民宪法权利把超过10万美国人关进集中营。

“It is Mr. Beckel’s extreme racist and xenophobic views that are a threat to the American people and he should resign now.”

译文:Beckel先生的极端种族歧视和排外观点正是对美国人民的威胁,他应该立即辞职。
