Don’t let them distract us. Focus on the money.

The #Socialism toothpaste is out of the tube and the Democrats are gonna have a hell of a time putting it back in in time for 11/20.

“Sounds nice? It’s a nice dream, I’ll grant you. For what it’s worth, I think Yang is pure of heart and intention. But UBI doesn’t work, and even if it did, it wouldn’t do diddly squat for the plight of white America, nor would it save America as a nation, as Yang believes. That’s because there is no saving America. Also, his dreams of robot workers are nothing new. …
You’ll find lots of critiques of UBI and automated socialism in other places. That’s not the point of Yang’s campaign, really. The memes will play up this aspect, but I believe that at the heart of it, Yang-memers are actually repudiating Americanism. The usual suspects will probably kvetch about how UBI and automated socialism are bad and constitutes hamburger theft, how stuffing Bezos in his own locker is an assault on free markets, and how pantsing (((Zuckerberg))) in front of all the girls is not Who We Are – as well as anti-Semitic, of course. I can already picture the three-hour Molyneux harangue – complete with poorly-portrayed indignation – that wouldn’t pass muster in a tenth-grade production of Romeo and Juliet. What light from yonder grifter’s bald dome bounces? We know. We get it. We don’t care.
Essentially, memelord and Dissident Right support for Andrew Yang is about accelerationism, about helping this enterprising fellow put America and her global hegemony in the ground. Any Right-wing support for Yang will inevitably run into Alt Lite, conservative, and libertarian opposition. This is for the very simple reason that they serve a different god, which is to say they seek to protect a different thing, make a different friend-enemy distinction, and ultimately have allegiance to a different concept. …”
I’d love to take this guy on a tour of Alabama.
We could drive through the ruins of post-industrial Birmingham, Gadsden and Anniston because actually those factories ARE NOT being automated or shipped overseas. We could drive through the ruins of the Black Belt because actually the mechanization of agriculture HAS NOT displaced all the people who used to be sharecroppers. We could drive through the collapsing small towns with their boarded up downtown business districts and Dollar Generals because actually retail trade HAS NOT collapsed. We wouldn’t see the new automated kiosks and check out lines in Walmart or McDonald’s. I doubt we would run across the fleet of UPS trucks that are constantly delivering Amazon products around here.
It’s all scaremongering and the average White working class and White middle family having an extra $24,000 to spend a year, assuming Chairman Yang’s UBI was implemented, would have no impact on their lives whatsoever. Are you kidding me? Just wait until the word about this spreads. It’s already blazing through the most internet savvy portions of the Populist Right at lightning speed flipping 2016 MAGA voters.
Yang Gang is accelerationist in the sense that $1,000 a month or mainstream conservatism has the viral potential to destroy the Republican Party and conservatism in large swathes of rural White America. Why on earth would anyone in the rural Deep South or Appalachia or the Midwest vote for a Joe Biden over Chairman Yang? The only thing Biden has going for him is name recognition.
I’m going to go on record and say that I think a lot of people in mainstream politics are going to be more shocked in this cycle about the potency of this idea than was ever the case in the 2016 election. I can’t wait to see conservatives try to convince these folks that Drumpf and Kushner share their Christian values to the point where they would turn down $1,000 a month.
THOUSAND DOLLA A MONTH and GET DAT BAG is going to be nitroglycerin in the Democratic primaries. I could be wrong about this, but we shall see.
The GOP is going to rue the day it failed to build that measly $25 billion border wall.
Note: Can you imagine a Yang-style Democrat running against Rand “MUH CONSTITUTION” Paul for his Kentucky Senate seat? I can see the result.
If so-called Neo-Nazi white supremacists would vote for Yang bucks over mainstream conservatism, what would the average normie do? At least Drumpf has won over Glenn Beck though, right?
