Andrew Yang has been setting the Internet ablaze this past week with loyal followers spreading his Yang Gang memes to try to get him into the Democratic Party presidential debates.
Many people have been allured by Yang’s Universal Basic Income scheme to give every individual a monthly stipend of $1,000.
Based on this, and a recent speech Yang gave, Yang appears to be another generic leftist.
In a video clip of Yang’s speech before an Asian American audience, Yang told his audience:
“I think we are one generation away from falling into the same camps as the Jews who were attacked in the Synagogue in Pittsburgh.”
“We’re probably one generation away from Americans shooting up a bunch of Asians saying ‘damn the Chinese” because there’s a giant Cold War with China.”
This is in reference to the perceived rise of “Sinophobia” in the United States that has emerged since Trump declared a trade war with China.
Yang fails to mention that one of the Democrats’ greatest heroes, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, actually did put Asians in internment camps during WW2.
Despite his revolutionary branding, Yang is falling yet again into the modern-day identity politics trap.
Back to Yang’s UBI scheme, not only is it a massive redistribution scheme, but in the context of our open borders status quo, which Yang supports, it’s just another welfare magnet. Adding another welfare magnet on top of our already troublesome open border system is just asking for the creation of immigrant ghettoes that we see in Western Europe.
All in all, there’s nothing revolutionary about Yang’s campaign. It’s just another re-tread of the growing lurch to the Left that the modern-day Democratic Party is taking.
By playing the Chinese card, Yang has officially met the affirmative action quota for race-hustling.
