Citizen Yang - Common Sense Consensus Conman

There is an internet trope which declares The Simpsons (the longest running television show in history) have a Nostradamus-esque ability to predict the Future.

Therefore, I give you Citizen Kang (1996), "But tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward; upward, not forward; and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom!"

And now Citizen Yang (2022), "But the Forward Party has a, not left or right, but forward stance on even the most divisive and contentious issues.”


As a TechBro, Yang is of course, convinced of his utter brilliance and the metaphysical certainty of his correctness on "politics".  Election defeats don't stymie his self-aggrandizement.  The Ghost of Oliver Cromwell could not dissuade Andrew Yang from his 3rd Party gossamer.  Some of Yang's ideas, mainly UBI, are good and as the head of the Department of Labor maybe Yang could help Unions and working Americans against the rapacious Republicans and the Corporate Hegemony, which they and the Obscene Rich seek to impose upon We, the People.

Of course, the reason Yang doesn't want to actually state any policy ideas or concrete stances on the issues other than FORWARD FORWARD FORWARD!!! is because as soon as he does, either the money will flee or curious disaffected voters will quickly size up Yang and his Forward Party for what it might actually be...

You see... Yang teamed up with a bunch of Republicans to create this 3rd Party and are they going to do ground level work to build up a party at the local level?  No.  Instead my suspicion is, much like Jill Stein or Ralph Nader, Yang will launch a Vanity Presidential Run in 24 and like those two, Andrew Yang is going to be used to shave off marginal voters in order for the GOP to effect their swiping of the 2024 election a little easier.

If Republicans are involved with this Yang guy it won't be good. Throw Cheney into the ring and who knows where things will go.

One thing is for certain - to think that they don't have only but a couple ways to cheat and win elections would be very naive. These fucks have been living for this for decades and will stop at nothing to destroy our country. This is their moment.
