my friends, this vicious kind of anti-Asian hate has got to stop!


excerpts:

Stringer also took the opportunity to blast Yang’s proposal for tax incentives to lure commuters back to mostly-empty Manhattan offices.

“Giving tax breaks to Fortune 500 companies is not going to bring the workers back,” he said. “This is Andrew Yang’s version of municipal Reaganomics.”

He has also slammed Yang for leaving the city at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, after POLITICO revealed that he spent much of his time at his second home in upstate New Paltz. “When others fled, I led,” Adams said, comparing Yang to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who took a much-mocked trip to Cancun during a power crisis in his state.

“Andrew Yang never spent a minute caring about how the city was run until he decided he wanted to run it — and it shows in his campaign of gimmicks, half-baked ideas, and telling every audience what they want to hear,” Stringer spokesperson Tyrone Stevens said. “We will continue to make the contrast between Andrew Yang’s dilettantism and Scott Stringer's deep commitment to New York City and proven track record of getting big things done in government.”

Meanwhile, Maya Wiley, the former counsel to Mayor Bill de Blasio, bashed Yang in a series of escalating statements in response to his call for the city to hold off on spending all of its federal stimulus aid.

By the end of last week, her campaign was comparing him to Donald Trump.

“Andrew Yang just can’t get his story straight and that makes him dangerous for New Yorkers,” Wiley spokesperson Julia Savel said. “Our city deserves a serious leader, not a mini-Trump who thinks our city is a fun play thing in between podcasts.”

The broadside drew a particularly pointed response from Yang’s camp, who accused him of hateful rhetoric amid a spike in anti-Asian attacks. "Eric Adams today crossed a line with his false and reprehensible attacks. The timing of his hate-filled vitriol towards Andrew should not be lost on anyone,” said campaign managers Sasha Ahuja and Chris Coffey.

The mob that controls NYC, and has controlled it for decades, doesn't want to change anything. They want it status quo - a few really rich people running everything, and everyone else living like rats.

Black on Asian crimes only occur because of our system of white supremacy that strips African Americans of their economic opportunities while taking respect and dignity away from Asian Americans.

Also, white people in power are experts at dividing and conquering to stay in power.

the Yang campaign’s polling shows him winning 49 percent of the Asian vote, with the other candidates in the single digits...does this mean Asians are racist?

There’s much that’s unfair about the Trump analogy: Yang is no buffoonish demagogue ...but there are also real parallels. He’s a charismatic novice with good branding, dominating in a fragmented field of experienced political figures
