Here’s the latest reason why Yang is my 2020 choice: an orchestrated social justice lynch mob campaign has gotten Alex McNabb of TRS fired as an EMT:
“(CNN)Emergency medical technician Alex McNabb has been let go by Jeb Stuart Rescue Squad months after racist comments surfaced on a podcast in which he compared black patients to gorillas and claimed to take “immense satisfaction” as he “terrorized” an African-American boy with a needle.
Wren Williams, the attorney for the Patrick County, Virginia, rescue squad, sent a statement from the board saying, “During executive sessions, the pros and cons of Mr. McNabb’s continued relationship with the squad were discussed, a legal opinion from outside legal counsel was shared among the board members, and the board members shared their personal thoughts.”
The board did not state exactly why it fired McNabb but it did so after discussions in an executive session on Sunday. The squad placed McNabb on unpaid leave in December, two days after news reports of his comments surfaced.
McNabb has said it’s his First Amendment right to say the things he has said and that it was all said while he was pretending to be a fictional character he created named Dr. Narcan. …”
I doubt that I am alone in assessing the political landscape and concluding that 1.) mainstream conservatism has literally nothing to offer us and 2.) Yang’s idea of creating a social safety net to insulate people who are victims of these Two Minute Hate witch hunting campaigns from doxxing and loss of employment beats anything in the Republican platform.
I’ve also reconsidered how we dealt with the SJWs in the 2016 election. We had people like MILO back then who made their names by “triggering the libs” for lulz. MILO was later ruined and banished by Conservatism, Inc on the eve of the 2017 CPAC. Basically, we voted Trump into office as a big middle finger to those people, which just inflamed them and made matters worse. We voted for Drumpf because “he fights.” We thought he would stand up to political correctness. To our surprise, Drumpf sold out to the donors and never fought for anyone especially his own supporters.
