It’s Déjà vu, but you probably don’t remember. In 2008 we had throngs of young people singing the praises of a politician who promised to rescue them from war and poverty, whilst delivering healthcare to millions and also balancing the budget.
He ended up doing only one of those things, and badly at that, but forget about history. There’s a new kid in town who millions have started talking point simping for on the Internet dot com: Chairman Andrew Yang.
I would normally refrain from silly allusions to communism, but there is no question Mr. Yang shares many of the same communitarian principles, with a necessary dollop of ethnocentrism to boot.
And his fans love it. Take these tidbits for example:
My favorite is the last one, which drips of Marxist useful idiocy. She won’t respond or explain herself, but others continue chanting in support, so it’s ok. This is typical low IQ behavior, the hallmark of people who can’t get past the basic veneer of issues and simply support a guy because he offers them money.
The comments also tend to explain away any flaws in his plans by appealing to “Andrew says…,” or “Andrew believes…” Forget the realities of politics, or the applied effects. If it sounds good, then it must be good.
The broader danger lies with WHAT Yang has been saying, whilst play acting as Mr. Common Sense. For instance, he boosted his racial self-interest by predicting Asians would be the targets of White shootings in the future:
“I think we’re one generation away from falling into the same camps as the Jews, who were attacked in a synagogue in Pittsburgh like just a couple months ago. It’s like we’re probably one generation away from Americans shooting up a bunch of Asians saying like, you know, ‘Damn the Chinese,’ because there’s a giant cold war even more with China. That is the great danger that I fear that my children are going to grow up in.”
Remember, this is the guy bringing people together. Let’s of course forget the Virginia Tech shooting, Eliot Rodger, and Santa Clarita. I suppose they were insecure about the Chinese taking their jobs too.
As I noted in the video, Andrew Yang also likes to pander and cuck for feminists, against all reality..
Finally, we have the bizarre idea that women raising children at home should be PAID by the government. This is the clearest link to communitarian thinking we have seen so far, the “It takes a village” psychosis on full display. Yes folks, we need the STATE to help you raise your kids, because you can’t do it alone, and you aren’t allowed to be free.
Nevertheless, his fans will persist.
