It’s preserved here.
Who the heck is Jenny Hyun? She’s some unknown songwriter for Korean pop groups. At least she’s unknown to me. Her parents immigrated to the United States from Korea, but she was born here and grew up here.
According to the latest post on her blog:
Jenny Hyun has been admitted to a hospital today. She is a paranoid schizophrenic and has been battling mental illness, a debilitating disease for many years.
Friends and family of Jenny want to extend their sincere apology for any harmful statements made verbally or via the web that Jenny has made while she was in the height of a psyshosis episode. We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time for her.
So saying that you don’t like black people is now grounds for being checked into a mental hospital and being reprogrammed to have proper thoughts about race. It sounds rather scary and Orwellian. And reminiscent of the former Soviet Union which used to put political dissidents into mental hospitals.
I scrolled through several pages of Jenny Hyun’s blog, and during the last week or two, she authored several posts about blacks of the type that you’d find at Lawrence Auster’s blog. But the Stormfront crowd will be disappointed to discover that Jenny likes Jewish people a lot and she is very pro-Israel.

So as an update, it should be pointed out that Jenny Hyun really did have some mental health issues, although I would say that her mental health problem here is that in writing this tweet she threw away her career for the brief feeling of telling off black people, and she appears to have been angry because some black people didn't respect Asian basketball player Jeremy Lin.
Note her following blog post:
I had a long talk with Aaron on the phone and for the past couple of days, I’ve been feeling very normalized. It’s not that I’ve stopped switching personalities, but they are syncing up so well that I can hardly tell the difference between them. Besides dealing with my personalities I still have other issues to address and I think the only time anyone notices myself switching is on the internet.
Another major issue in my life is my Anorexia, but I have experienced something so terrible because of it that I’m becoming traumatized to eat more, and my medication is also helping my appetite. My eating disorder has always been the culprit of most of my mental illnesses, especially when it came to my depression earlier on. In fact, it may have had a lot to do with the onset of my mental illnesses. In the past few months, I had started to lose my appetite so much that I would either forget to eat, and when I did eat, it would give me an upset stomach. The final straw was when I figured out that the less I ate, the angrier my voices became. My voices started to abuse me so much and as soon as I ate something, they would actually be happier. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned is that nutrition isn’t only for physical health, but mental health, since our brains are a physical part of our bodies.
So is it still Orwellian that she was sent to a mental hospital by someone? I think it's still a little Orwellian yes given that her commitment was triggered by crimespeech and not the post half a year earlier when she wrote about hearing voices.
