How mad are you right now about #YangGang?
It is probably a function of where you fall on the political spectrum:
This is the root of the #YangGang taking off. Trump, following the advice of cucks and Kushner, drifted farther and farther to the lower right (where nobody is) and left a void in the upper left for someone like Yang to come in and appeal to his populist voters. pic.twitter.com/DEFP7HYIvv

The upper left hand corner is populists. The upper right hand corner is conservatives. The bottom right hand corner is libertarians. The bottom left hand corner is progressives. Generally speaking, there are pro-White populists, pro-White conservatives and pro-White libertarians.
#YangGang are the pro-White populists. They are socially conservative, economically populist voters. They were attracted to Donald Trump because of his positions on immigration, trade, opioid deaths, foreign policy and political correctness. They have always co-existed uneasily with conservatives though because they reject neo-liberal economics. Trump won them over with his “America First” anti-globalist, pro-working class rhetoric on strong borders, trade deals, infrastructure, etc.
What has happened with the Trump-Yang voter is a shift from voting on the basis of social issues to economics. The #YangGang has concluded that Trump and the GOP have failed on all the social issues and so now they are going to vote their wallets in 2020. Yang is offering ideas like UBI, regulating the internet as a public utility, student loan debt reduction and Medicare for All. It’s even worse than that with them because the Trump presidency has been a bait-and-switch.
Donald Trump has delivered nothing but conservative and libertarian policy victories for his donors. Lately, he embraced the idea of RAISING legal immigration while simultaneously suffering a humiliating defeat on shutting down the government to fund the border wall. He has also allowed the issues he ran on like the opioid epidemic, political correctness and trade deficits to spiral of the control. The Trump-Yang voter didn’t vote for criminal justice reform and MIGA.
The Trump-Yang voter looks at the Trump presidency and the GOP and sees them trying to overthrow the government of Venezuela, talking about nothing but protecting AIPAC from anti-Semitism, screwing them over by embracing legal immigration. Frankly, they are coming across as a bunch of tone deaf Boomers trying to refight the Cold War with their “socialism” messaging. I’m not saying this is true of all Boomers, but that is who is watching this on Hannity and Laura Ingraham’s show.
It finally became too much:

This isn’t a radical shift either.
Greg Johnson endorsed universal basic income in 2012. Richard Spencer has talked about it for years. They hate each other, but agree on that issue. Yang 2020 has already managed to get Richard Spencer, Occidental Dissent, Matt Heimbach and Matt Parrott, Daily Stormer, TRS, Ramzpaul, Nick Fuentes, the Irony Bros, much of /pol/ and countless others on the same page for the first time in years. If for nothing else, we should all be glad the abusive relationship with Trump has ended.
For all the people pointing to Yang’s immigration policies, as well as his social policies in general, which is to say, the pro-White libertarian crowd, my response is that #YangGang ought to light a fire under the ass of the GOP to stop jerking you around. Maybe we will consider coming back to the GOP plantation when Trump and the GOP Senate start delivering victories on social issues. In the meantime, we want to chill on social media (we were banned for supporting Trump), collect the $1,000 a month (you can always give us your handouts) and watch Conservatism, Inc. go up in flames.
