A parent group president wants City Councilman Chaim Deutsch barred from their meetings after he demanded punishment for a member who called Asians “yellow” in an email thread, The Post has learned.

At a heated gathering of Community Education Council 22 last month, Deutsch “invaded the personal space” of “at least” one member and refused to abide by his speaking time limit, Jessica Byrne wrote in a letter to City Council Speaker Corey Johnson.

“I cannot let the disrespectful and demeaning behavior of an elected city official while addressing volunteer members of a community council go unchallenged,” the missive read.

Deutsch attended the meeting in Gravesend to rip  Dr. Jackie Cody after she referred to Asians as “yellow folks” and “yellow children” in a group email string for members of parental boards across the city.

Flanked by dozens of mostly Asian protesters, Deutsch argued that her language was unacceptable and sparred with several members of the panel.

While she criticized Cody’s language, Byrne’s letter said that “CM Deutsch physically invaded the personal space of at least one CEC member” and that he “refused to give back the microphone when he was over his time.”

She also noted that the board she leads is comprised mostly of minority women who “have been victims of hate speech and discrimination” and that “we cannot center ourselves or our work by one-upping our own painful experiences.”

At the meeting, Deutsch said anti-Asian discrimination had to be confronted with the same vigor commonly applied to other groups.

“When the Muslim community is attacked in our city, we all stand up for them,” he said. “When the Jewish community is attacked, we stand up for them. When our black and brown communities are attacked, we all stand up for them. When the Asian community is attacked, we will stand up for them!”

When a member of the board told him his two-minute time was up, Deutsch refused to relinquish the microphone.

“Throw me out!” Deutsch shouted. “When someone says something that is hurtful to an individual, that person needs to be suspended!”

Byrne’s letter said he spoke for 4 minutes and criticized him for leaving the meeting early.

If he had stayed, the letter said, Deutsch would have witnessed the “beginnings of two communities coming together and trying to better understand each other’s experiences living under a system of oppression.”

She suggested that a member of the public who behaved similarly to Deutsch at a City Council meeting would end up in “handcuffs.”
