I see the mainstream media is back in the same denial mode it was in when it declared that Trump was a fringe candidate and that MAGA wasn’t going anywhere:
“If you visit the online betting market PredictIt, you’ll see a long list of 2020 Democratic candidates, ranked in order of their odds of winning the party’s nomination for president, according to the site’s users.
Joe Biden, the former vice president, and Senator Bernie Sanders top the list. Then come other well-known Democrats: Senator Kamala Harris, former Representative Beto O’Rourke, Andrew Yang, Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Wait, hang on a minute. Andrew Yang?
This is not an algorithm glitch, it turns out. Mr. Yang, 44, an entrepreneur and a political neophyte running on the idea that the United States should provide a universal basic income, is popping up in unexpected places in the Democratic contest. …”
I have a theory that explains everything.
The same “far right trolls” who supported Trump are really disaffected moderate White ethnocentric populists. They are Sam Francis’s Middle American Radicals. These people are socially conservative, economically populist. They are left-authoritarian voters like me.
The New York Times isn’t in the middle of the American political spectrum. It is way over there in the Far Left with people like Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. It is no coincidence that Richard Spencer likes Andrew Yang. It is because he is actually closer to Yang’s policy positions on a number of issues. This is why he is swinging from Trump to Yang like everyone else.
But wait … why are all the white supremacists, NEETs, reactionaries, Neo-Nazis, neo-Confederates, Alt-Right bigots and racists supporting Andrew Yang? It’s because he is right up their alley. He isn’t another polarizing Boomer moron like Donald Trump or Elizabeth Warren. He is essentially a Silicon Valley reactionary who has thought through the problem of work.
I can already clearly see how Andrew Yang becomes the next president of the United States in a landslide. It will be the easiest thing in the world for him to move to the center. The judo chop that will finish off Blompf will be when Yang says we can build the wall and support a moratorium on immigration after all because we don’t need an endless influx of immigrants or porous borders anyway and by the way I am cool with White people. He will stand on the debate stage next to Blompf who will come across as a blithering idiot running against “socialism” while he says things like “UBI is a 21st century New Deal for Millennials and Zoomers” and “capitalism shouldn’t start at zero.”
Democrats aren’t as passionately committed to standing like Custer on the border wall and perpetual immigration as some might think. When they figure out how to strike the fatal blow to Conservatism, Inc. once and for all by calming down all these White people and compromise to get student loan forgiveness, UBI, legal weed, Medicare for All and all kinds of other things that True Conservatism opposes, but which sensible people support, they won’t have any issue with it.
It is a significant bellwether that “Neo-Nazi white supremacists” are so strongly Yang Gang as of March 2019. Presumbaly, the rest of the electorate is significantly less “racist” and “bigoted” and committed to “white supremacy” than we are. We’re not “racists” and “bigots” who passionately hate Yang because he is Asian. We’re just highly educated people who keep up with genetics and know better than to believe all the antiquated 20th century myths about how “whiteness is a social construct” and “race is a social construct.” Dumb people believe in literal human equality. Everyone with any intelligence and education whatsoever can see that Yang is vastly superior to Blompf in that respect. Finally, a president who isn’t an idiot or SJW is an exciting prospect to race realists and center Left policy wonks.
Who will still be mad when Yang is president? Highly ideological Boomers who have argued about “socialism” vs. “capitalism” for a generation but will be the first to take the $1,000 a month and retire. White Nationalists will be mad about Yang being Asian but otherwise nothing much else will really change. SJWs will be mad at being marginalized but legalized weed, affordable health care and $1,000 a month will cause them to relax. Libertarians can support UBI because even Milton Friedman was on board with it. Conservatives can support it because more women will be able to be stay at home moms. “Neo-Nazi white supremacists” can support it to rebuild their finances and help ease their transition into the ethnostate. Progressives can support it because humane capitalism is actually progress.
Who is the alternative to Yang? What is their vision? Elizabeth Warren? Beta O’Dork? Joe Biden? Kamala Harris? Donald Trump? I don’t like their chances.
Note: Baked Alaska has decided to take the $1,000 a month and replatforming. This is a significantly wiser choice than the one he made on backing Blompf in 2016.
