I’m definitely in the camp of defending rioting & looting as a legitimate, politically-informed response to state violence. I’ve tweeted on this topic many times & I’m always willing to engage people in good faith discussion of why I hold that position.— DEFUND & ABOLISH POLICE (@BreeNewsome) April 13, 2021

Is Yang a “white supremacist” for being “white adjacent”?
Is this another one of these anti-Asian hate crimes that we have heard so much about?
“Andrew Yang was filmed pedaling away after bike protesters called him ‘pro-cop’ and chanted ‘shame’ at him during a Daunte Wright protest in the Big Apple on Tuesday.
Yang, who is running for Mayor of New York City, rode with about 150 cyclists across the Brooklyn Bridge from Barclays Center in Brooklyn into Lower Manhattan before he was confronted in Battery Park. …
Yang, 46, was spotted wearing a blue suit with a ‘Forward New York’ face mask while pedaling a black Schwinn bicycle with a baby seat attached.
‘You don’t care about the community. Get you’re a** out of here. We do not want you here,’ one woman with a megaphone yells at the former presidential hopeful.
A second woman shouts: ‘You’re pro-cop!’ …”
“We don’t want you here. You’re pro-cop,” the woman said, according to footage of the encounter obtained by The Post.
Several members of the demonstration, which had thinned out by that time, then chanted “shame,” at Yang as he rode away. …”
I know that the media has been saying that “white supremacists” are behind the relentless assault on the AAPI community in New York City, but I was under the impression that we had supported Yang and Tulsi? Weren’t we the ones who launched Yang and Tulsi into the Democratic debates?
It has been interesting to watch the escalation of progressive attacks on Yang. Politico ran a story in which Yang was called a mini-Trump. They also accused him of “charming the Right” in his 2020 campaign. There are lots of people on the Left, particularly the politically correct Asians, who HATE Andrew Yang. The funniest thing about it is that Yang is now on the verge of seizing power in New York City and defeating progressives and it all started because we backed him as a troll in early 2019.
Note: BTW, the reason that everyone got stimulus checks is because we supported Yang in the Democratic primary who injected the idea of UBI into the political mainstream right before COVID hit. In retrospect, Yang Gang was the one thing we did in the Trump years that paid off for us.
