Since he appeared on a February episode of the “Joe Rogan Experience,” Yang’s candidacy has received worship from the most nefarious creatures of the far-right—with many highlighting his key policy initiative of establishing a universal ‘Freedom Dividend’ income to facilitate America’s transition to automation.

“It’s my perception that American nationalists are coming to grips with demographic replacement and hence welcome their Taiwanese overlord, Andrew Yang,” Faith Goldy, a far-right Canadian activist who changed her Twitter avatar in support of the candidate, told Observer. “Despite his many shortcomings, mass migration seems to be the result, no matter the president, and so $1,000 each month should steady their hands behind the wheel on America’s highway to hell.”

Having just reached the threshold of 65,000 unique donations to qualify on the Democratic debate stage, Yang also noted his supporters have told him he will “crush” President Donald Trump should the two ever go head-to-head on policy issues.

Who would've thunk white supremacists want freebies ($1,000 per month) too?

Its because Yangs first election ad on youtube speaks to the working class. Many white nationalists are economically disadvantaged and Yang speaks to that. Now Yang himself is a progressive and his campaign has disavowed racism but the fact remains they still support him.

I think it may have to do with this ad the campaign launched.

Can you give us some specific details on what you know about this? Or is it something that you just made up?

I'm not claiming they all are just the majority. Most people who support radical political movements are economically disadvantaged men fix the economy and you have less extremism. What an odd comment to be offended by

Ahh so it falls into "I just made it up" category. Thanks for the clarification.

Are you claiming they are all rich? I think its hilarious how triggered you got by that comment.

"The group found that unemployed white Americans without a college degree and with an annual income between $0 and $29,000 were more likely to agree with the principles of the white nationalist movement."

One thing I like about Yangs candidacy is he talks about how many Americans have a scarcity mindset which makes them more fearful this is due to economic problems like job loss. Get rid of the economic issues and you would have a happier country which would also be less racist less fearful and more productive.

I haven't said anything about them. I'm asking you to justify what you said. Seems that you take big issue with this.
