    Yang Gang 2020




    After the "Trump betrayal" - and especially the last weeks were just awful in that regard - 4 chan and a significant part of the alt-right/far right have decided to throw all their weight behind Andrew Yang, an entrepreneur of Chinese descent and an outsider amongst the Democratic candidates - they call themselves "the Yang gang" and they're trying to meme Andrew Yang into office. I've heard that Yang actually hired some 4 channers to do this job and that's how everything began.

    One of Yang campaign promises are the so-called "Yangbux": a $1,000 monthly basic income for every American citizen. Yangbux are also called NEETbux or in other words: money for men (and women) who don't have a job or study but post anime images on 4 chan or Tumblr all day long. I suppose the general, more apolitical malcontents (perhaps even incels and the like) support Yang, together with Bernie Sanders supporters - but when I look at messages in the huge nationalist group "Meta Chan" on FB it becomes clear Yang has considerable support in our circles as well.




    I've only dived into this matter in the last few days and only just got my feet wet, but people on the far right seem to be Yang Gangers because they believe in "acceleration", accelarating the pace of history - they believe America is doomed anyway and want to hasten the process. A monthly basic income features in that plan. And if it doesn't make the system collapse, you'll still have your Yangbux and there's no such thing as bad money (or is there?). And also, Yang seems to have a considerable amount of sympathy for the sad plight of Anglo-America, at least way more than that new generation of "social justice" politicians who are trying to take over the Democratic party:





    Economic Invicibility supports Andrew Yang too:



    Of course, not everyone is happy with this development. This dude makes a good argument against the Yang Gang from an ethnonationalist perspective:



    Here's another (reoccuring) critique:



    And one more, from a Trumpist this time - he suspects there's a cultural marxist plot behind #Yanggang:



    They're all part of the anti-Yang front:



    Yang is after your guns at any rate:

    “How can one explain this trend towards a more colorless and shallow life? Well, the work was easier, if less healthy, and it brought in more money, more leisure, and perhaps more entertainment. A day in the country is long and hard. And yet the fruits of their present life were worthless compared to a single coin of their former life: a rest in the evening and a rural festivity. That they no longer knew the old kind of happiness was obvious from the discontentment which spread over their features. Soon dissatisfaction, prevailing over all their other moods, became their religion.” - Ernst Jünger, The Glass Bees

    Some more on Yang himself:

    Andrew Yang Is On Fire

    By Spencer Kellogg | @Spencer_Kellogg



    Who saw this coming? Andrew Yang is the dark horse candidate for 2020 and the internet loves him. Hell, as a right of center libertarian – I love him. Though the mainstream media is doing their best to keep him in the dark, Yang is gaining clout and credibility every day.

    His laid back demeanor and outsider brand of politics have made him a captivating story that simply cannot be ignored. Namely, his call for a Universal Basic Income and his tech forward platform proves that Yang has a new vision for America that seems both plausible and exciting.

    Yang’s Platform

    At the top of Yang’s platform is an intriguing call for Universal Basic Income. Yang’s policy position would give every American citizen between 18 and 64 exactly 1,000 dollars a month. Yang suggests this will be an important social security measure to fight off new technologies strongarming American workers and he is probably right.

    The tech-savvy millionaire entrepreneur has also spoken bravely about the troubling rise of unchecked artificial intelligence at home and abroad. In particular, he has gone so far as to call the looming automation industry “the disintegration of our society.” While most politicians barely utter a word about these topics, Andrew Yang has made it his bread and butter. And his campaign is gaining ground as a result.

    Yang’s brand of ‘human-centered capitalism’ positions Medicare for all among his top priorities. He is pro-blockchain technology and an outspoken critic of the failed war on drugs. What’s most impressive about his policy positions is that they are all explained at length on his website, something we rarely see from today’s global politicians. In an era of the soundbite, Yang has prioritized attention to detail.

    Don’t believe me? Check out his expansive policy section here: https://www.yang2020.com/policies/

    Yang has prioritized getting into the first set of Democratic debates this summer. He needs 60,000 individual donors to get a podium and he is only a couple thousand away. In all likelihood, and against the wishes of more established candidates, he will likely be on the debate stage heading into Iowa. This is a net positive for our Democracy. The more voices outside of the prescribed canon, the better.

    Getting into the debates is a top priority of any candidate. Because we place such a high value on the visual, Yang knows this is his best shot of spreading his message. Ross Perot, the last real outsider candidate for President, used the debates as an opportunity to distance himself from the field. Andrew Yang can do the same.
    Coding The Future

    Recently, Yang suggested we are “in the third inning of the greatest economic transformation in the history of the world.” He points to the 4 million jobs that were automated away in states like Ohio and Florida as being the key to Donald Trump’s victory. And he’s right. Trump ran on a message of bringing jobs back but the notoriously technophobic president has stalled our growth in the sector.

    The thing that many supporters like most about Yang is his emphasis on the big ideas in tech. While today’s politicians seem severely unprepared for the next decade, Yang has a history in the industry. His thoughts on A.I., automation, blockchain and the role of the American worker in all of it is refreshing. Speaking with UBI activist Phillipe Chabot, Yang was blunt: “The people in power are technologically illiterate.”

    As other Democrats have made headlines recently for their outlandish economic ideas, UBI feels both plausible and increasingly important. Yang has also announced he will take virtual currency donations. As a result, his campaign will highlight the budding cryptocurrency industry.
    Summary

    Andrew Yang is not your normal politician and that’s exactly why I like him. As with President Trump, Americans are interested in new ideas from outsider voices and Yang is coming from far left field. But his interest in promoting new visions for the future of our people and the American economy has people listening. Whether they get the chance to vote for him is another story. For now, his candidacy is a fresh take on an old wheel and we are all looking forward to the next spin.

    Yang is a leftist, a Demonrat (Democrat). There are idiots backing him, and there are "accelerationists" who want America to collapse.



    Excerpt:
    On 4chan, one user introduced the tweet by saying, simply, “Andrew Yang cares about White People.”

    There’s no indication that the campaign has courted that support, and when reached by The Verge, Yang unequivocally rejected it. “I denounce and disavow hatred, bigotry, racism, white nationalism, anti-Semitism and the alt-right in all its many forms. Full stop,” Yang said in a statement. “For anyone with this agenda, we do not want your support. We do not want your votes. You are not welcome in this campaign.”

    “As one of the first Asian American candidates for President in our history and the son of immigrants, I see racism and white nationalism as a threat to the core ideals of what it means to be an American,” Yang continued. “I have two young children who will grow up in this country. I know what that means. “

    I am voting for President Trump in 2020.

    I know people who voted for obama and hillary for the same reason.

    The problem is Yang or anybody else will not hasten the fall of America, they will prolong it. There is also the reasoning that America has fallen long ago, it's that Americans have not realized this.

    Trump has also disavowed white nationalism, anti-semitism, bigotry, etc. There's no difference in that regard between Trump and Yang. They mean it too. And what else to expect? Yang complains about the far right memes hijacking his own memes BTW, "he has a meme problem", the media says. If he wanted to troll, he was trolled right back. Not saying you should join the Yang Gang nor vote for Yang instead of Trump, but it hardly matters who'll win in 2020 IMHO, at least not domestically. A Trump vote would further weaken the global liberal order though.

    Yang Gang: Necessary Dissent



    The Dissident Right has no viable presidential candidate. Trump is not /our guy/. He’s had three years to make good on his campaign promises to his voting base and is quickly losing steam, while his previously hot takes are made lukewarm by his actions. He’s clearly not a man of his word and so it comes as no surprise that the Dissident Right is, well, dissident and angry.

    Let’s be clear: we are all aware that with the current economic climate, rise of radical feminism, dramatic increase of women in the workforce, decreasing in earnings of family men, the housing market bubble and rising inflation have all made it drastically more difficult for a middle class white man to provide for a family on one household income. In addition to these undeniable factors, the government is systematically siphoning what little we make and funneling it into the hands of minorities and illegal aliens to the tune of 729 billion dollars (2017) in for welfare spending alone, never mind the auxiliary programs for education and immigration. New Deal policies like Social Security will be absolutely worthless by the time our generation comes up to retirement, and we can’t count on the trade markets to handle our investments, like retirement savings and home values properly to secure our own futures.

    The current welfare system is stacked decidedly against us, while vehemently and racially biased and outdated programs like Affirmative Action all but guarantee that there is a decided war against our people. These are no longer the days of a white Southern man earning a fair dollar to guide his family through the world. As much as we would like to think we’re going to bring that back, it’s not going to happen in Weimerica. The harsh, relentless reality is that the old world and way of life no longer exists. We cannot afford to fall back on our misdirected proud Anglo morals that instruct us to “earn an honest dollar” to support our family. Should we continue to strive for that? Absolutely. Should we stupidly adhere to a moral value that our political adversaries never held sacred? Absolutely not. Save your moral values for your brothers and sisters, especially regarding this Yang UBI nonsense.

    Are Alaskans failing to provide for their families when they receive the dividends from oil profits? The US has a real GDP of 19 trillion dollars and you want to criticize your brothers and sisters over a $12k income supplement program paid via VAT that would absolutely obliterate a grossly expanded welfare system which supports the exact demographic we’d like to see shrink. Do not forget the US is an oligarchy. A VAT tax hurts only the major corporations who are actively writing laws that denigrate, demoralize and destroy our people and the way of life we pursue. This is not a fair and balanced democratic system. We are not free. This isn’t fair. We have men in jail because they couldn’t even afford effective legal counsel, yet we have men on our side with the audacity to accuse their brothers in the movement of being lumpenproletariats for supporting welfare reform, simply because this reform idea came from the mouth of a leftist chinaman. Have you forgotten Charles Murray?

    I get it. You’re scared of communism, socialism and democrats. It’s hard to get over what Roosevelt did to the South because it was unthinkable that he wouldn’t reward a solid voting base with funds from federal programs, but he gave that money to the states his administration was courting instead. And, the South suffered. Damn Democrats. But, we should be willing to learn from past mistakes and avoid throwing our blind support into one particular side of the political spectrum, a side which does not look out for our interests as white middle class Southerners.



    The Yang Gang meme crosses the boundary between Left and Right and screams that we want to be heard. It just might be enough to scare Trump into revising his policies or begin implementing the policies he promised us in 2016. We are not in danger of a communist takeover in the Dissident Right; however, we are in real danger of falling from the middle class because we’re so stuck on the idea of revitalizing a dead American Dream, which we fail to recognize has been dead since the 1960s. So, perhaps instead of using this as a divisive tactic, the Red Scare of the Dissident Right, maybe look the other way, while the irony bros you accuse of nihilism work their meme magic. Try to hear the message behind the meme: We are not broken; we are looking for alternatives.

    The Yang Gang debate among ourselves has brought out the worst and most insulting accusations: those on our side who like the idea of Yang’s UBI income are “weak men” who fail to support their families. Allow me to bring something to the forefront that appears to have been forgotten in this debate: The middle class is crumbling, and we are all struggling to support our families, while minorities and illegal aliens are recipients of hundreds of billions of dollars in tax funded welfare programs. Your kids are eating PB and J for lunch and their kids are gorging themselves on food stamp luxuries, literally obese off your tax dollars – and you’re paying for their diabetes as well under a poorly written healthcare system specifically designed to burden the middle class.

    Financial insecurity among the middle class and the rising generations is so rampant, millennials are saying they either don’t want kids, or are delaying having kids because they are insecure financially. Insulting your brothers and sisters using outdated tropes developed 60 years ago based on the lie of the American Dream is hardly an extension of brotherly solidarity, and completely ignores the underlying message of what Yang Gang irony bros are saying: It is undeniable truth that we can no longer play fair and support our families, raise and educate our children, own property and protect our rights on a one family income, while playing by outdated conservative rules and values.

    Do you hear what’s being said to you when you accuse them of being failures? Go ahead and gloss this over while calling it a nihilistic pursuit, but where are the viable alternatives? Loudly throwing support behind a ridiculously absurd political candidate as a form of memetic warfare to highlight what can arguably be called the root cause of our people’s primary complaint is a highly effective form of political dissent. Maybe our current president will listen when he sees that he will surely lose reelection – an inevitability we should begin preparations for.

    Yours truly, always.

    I'm not going to vote for a leftist, democrat, non white. Trump said all the right things too.
    It doesn't matter the country is a jewish oligarchy and the president just gets isolated and
    ignored if he doesn't play ball.

    Paid meme-makers hyping Andrew Yang for 2020 election

    https://cloverchronicle.com/2019/03/...luence-voters/

    #YangGang Exposed: Insider Claims 2020 Hopeful Andrew Yang Is Paying Groups Of Online “Meme Operators” To Influence Future Voters
    By cloverchronicle on March 9, 2019

    The insider posted the following message on an anonymous image board:
    Do you know why Andrew Yang is gaining traction? I’ll tell you: it’s because he sat back and watched the magical effect of memes during the 2016 presidential election.

    Andrew saw how you /pol/sters and others basically pumped out never-ending memes to help propel Trump into the White House. Now, he wants a piece of that magical ‘meme pie’, per se.
    How can Trump even compete with this? It’s on a whole new level.

    Before you discount my claims of Andrew Yang’s political savviness, I’d like to just take a moment to say that, yes, I was on Andrew’s ‘meme team’. ...the money he offered was enticing. I simply could not resist.
    They continued:
    The ‘meme team’ operates on Discord, Reddit, Voat, Twitter and other platforms. There are probably close to 100 ‘operators’ spending hours each day creating and spreading memes online.

    ....

    So, I am here to warn you about Andrew Yang’s ‘meme operators’ and how they will pose a grave threat to Donald Trump’s reelection in 2020.

    Quit frankly alto I can understand the ride the tiger sentiment that some right wing supporters of Yang might have and one can of course point to how the escalation of loony left activism (remember the bathrooms) and how Obama's race baiting lead to strong support for Trump. And that a president Yang might have an even stronger effect.

    At the other hand. I would argue. First of all Trump has tried to make true many of his campaign promises so far as I can judge it. Even if he has both a hostile democrat alliance and the never trumpers in the GOP against him. Depending on how his talks with North-Korea ends it could be his only Nixon can go to moment. Also the US might not get a wall along the entire border with Mexico, which might be impractical anyway. But border control will probably be strengthen, unless traitorous elements in congress succeed dragging their feet on the issue until 2020 in the hopes Trump will be gone.

    The problem that Trump faced that he lacked capable people that can help carry out a immigration patriotic (build the 'wall'/operation wettback 2), 'nationalist' economic and semi-realist international policies. With many who are capable do not agree with such policies and those who agree lack a lot of crucial experience and connections. So Trump was playing with a severe handicap straight from the beginning, not helped of course that many on the right believed the propaganda that Trump could not win anyway. And was therefore not ready to seize the opportunity his victory provided when our opponents and enemies where temporary in disarray.

    Now for Yang, how much change does he stand against the Democrat party establishment and increasing SJW and whitie-got-to-go electoral base. Considering that he brought the plight over the white American working class in mostly the fly over country. It could just as well end up being nothing more then a cynical way to take votes away from candidates who more truly care about plight of American workers. And I doubt that these right wing members of the yanggang have any plan for what to do after a victory for Yang in 2020. At best this could be a clever ploy to split the anti-border control vote.

    Now have given my opinion on it :

    unz review

    The dark horse candidate of the 2020 Democratic primary is entrepreneur Andrew Yang, who just qualified for the first round of debates by attracting over 65,000 unique donors. [Andrew Yang qualifies for first DNC debate with 65,000 unique donors, by Orion Rummler, Axios, March 12, 2019] Yang is a businessman who has worked in several fields, but was best known for founding Venture for America, which helps college graduates become entrepreneurs. However, he is now gaining recognition for his signature campaign promise—$1,000 a month for every American.

    Yang promises a universal entitlement, not dependent on income, that he calls a “freedom dividend.” To be funded through a value added tax, Yang claims that it would reduce the strain on “health care, incarceration, homeless services, and the like” and actually save billions of dollars. Yang also notes that “current welfare and social program beneficiaries would be given a choice between their current benefits or $1,000 cash unconditionally.”

    As Yang himself notes, this is not a new idea, nor one particularly tied to the Left. Indeed, it’s been proposed by several prominent libertarians because it would replace the far more inefficient welfare system. Charles Murray called for this policy in 2016. [A guaranteed income for every American, AEI, June 3, 2016] Milton Friedman suggested a similar policy in a 1968 interview with William F. Buckley, though Friedman called it a “negative income tax.”

    (...)

    Rest at the above link.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    Some image I came across on my FB timeline - not saying it's true, but I can see where the dude is coming from. It's hard to care too much for any presidential candidate unless they would be full on ethnonationalists, hence it's better to view them as pieces on a chessboard than as figures you should get attached too.




    Yang Gang: Fellowship of the Broken

    Source: IdentityDixie.com

    Over the course of the last week, I, and many of you, have run across the new “Yang Gang” memes. Originally, I took the meme at face value and thought it was hilarious. For me, it perfectly captured a number of things about the Dissident Right’s state of affairs. It strongly criticized the way that the Trump administration has failed on a vast majority of the idealistic campaign promises that were supposed to turn the country around.



    It also captured the desperation that many are feeling with the realization that the destructive course the West is on will not be averted with the Trump presidency. That criticism, along with the disillusionment many are feeling, was fertile ground for the comedy behind the meme. Unfortunately, what was supposed to be funny and ironic has shockingly now shifted to something different- that Yang Gang isn’t treating this as a joke. They’re serious. And, that’s a serious problem.

    Perhaps this was another personal failing on my part. This certainly is not the first time this has happened. Almost a year ago, I thought that the Nazbol memes were funny for the same reason. To think that the same people pushing for a Trump presidency would all of a sudden take such a radical swing to the Left and start advocating for some sort of White Communism seemed so ludicrous to me that I could only take it as comedy gold. I was proven wrong then, and it seems, through my own naiveite, I am being proven wrong again.

    There is a sad realization to be had, but also a learning opportunity that comes along with moments like these.

    The first thing that is blatantly obvious about the Yang support is its futility. The man is not some Trumpian candidate of the Left. Trump was, at the very least, a household name with enough fame and fortune to run a serious campaign. Andrew Yang has neither of those, and the only thing the man has going for him are a set of lofty, yet implausible, ideals. The hope that some sort of “meme magic” could propel this dead-in-the-water candidate to the forefront of the Democratic primaries is too ridiculous to even consider here. On some level everyone knows this, even those who have chosen to give their support to Yang, and this fact reveals the most about the type of travelers among us.

    To preface a bit, the Dissident Right miscalculated during the Trump candidacy. What most of us believed at the time was that the future of America was on the precipice of failure and that if we could somehow, some way, just begin to tip her back toward sanity she could be saved. We did not realize that America was already gone, for better or worse. Donald Trump was not the saving grace we thought he would be, but rather the first shot from the defeated side of a war that had long been lost. Over the course of his presidency thus far, I believe that most of us have woken up to that fact, and it is the realization of this fact that separates the wheat from the chaff.



    The effectiveness of any movement rests on its leaders’ ability to maintain morale and effectively assess the difficulties facing the movement. I will not name names, but the failure of the Dissident Right was not necessarily in its leaderships’ miscalculation of what we were up against, but rather, in its failure to effectively rally the troops when our predicament had been properly assessed. What happened was a splintering into various, warring factions that have effectively rendered the movement null and void (there is a reason we are no longer in national headlines). Many of the people who believed in that saving grace have turned bitter and destructive. Instead of recalibrating and preparing to move in a direction that will actually be fruitful, they would rather fight among others, waste their time in nihilistic pursuits (like supporting Andrew Yang or advocating for Nazbol), or self-destruct under the weight of the black pill. Perhaps it is because, psychologically, these folks cannot suffer another defeat or setback, but that is neither here nor there. This is the crux of what we level-headed folks need to recognize so that we can reorganize more effectively and combat it if it ever comes our way again.

    Dissident movements are…well…filled with dissident people, and plenty of those people are broken by the system. No surprise there. However, a movement that allows broken people in will go nowhere if that movement cannot either a) fix the broken people or b) remove those who cannot be fixed. Many broken people do not want to be fixed, they would rather latch onto something to destroy it, much the same way as they destroy themselves. Folks unironically advocating for Yang Gang are broken. They have given up hope in our movement’s ability to right what is wrong in society and would rather spend their time in frivolous “gibs me dat” pursuits, rather than champion ideas that can actually save our people and way of life. For those of us who are serious, we need to try to help fix these broken people so that they can help in our struggle to bring about real change or let them fall by the wayside by means of a swift boot to the ass. Keeping people around with a destructive mentality will only destroy us in the end, and this is one of the main reasons why dissident groups of the past have always failed. They have been more focused on quantity, rather than quality.

    This is the sad realization: we have filled our ranks with broken people who lack the drive and willpower to forge on ahead in the face of defeat and act toward positive ends. We have those among us who, when the going got tough, decided to roll over and give up.

    We must recognize this is a positive because we are able to act upon it. We have the ability to right our course, clear out the destructive elements within, and begin gaining ground again. The Nazbol stuff and the Yang Gang is a symptom of a deeper issue, and only by recognizing the root cause and weeding it out can we ever have a chance to succeed in our endeavor. The black pill is not a negative thing, and some would argue it is a necessary step. I have often said that when you give up hope that someone will come along and save you, you will start acting in a way that will ensure you can save yourself. I am afraid I will have to take that back a bit. When people lose hope that someone will come along and save them, some will begin acting in ways that ensure they can save themselves; others will begin asking for handouts like our simian cohabitants.

    “How can one explain this trend towards a more colorless and shallow life? Well, the work was easier, if less healthy, and it brought in more money, more leisure, and perhaps more entertainment. A day in the country is long and hard. And yet the fruits of their present life were worthless compared to a single coin of their former life: a rest in the evening and a rural festivity. That they no longer knew the old kind of happiness was obvious from the discontentment which spread over their features. Soon dissatisfaction, prevailing over all their other moods, became their religion.” - Ernst Jünger, The Glass Bees
