Just this past week, former presidential candidate Andrew Yang (along with a bevy of corporate dems and republicans), announced the formation of a THIRD political party, aka the Forward Together Party. In a vapid op-ed, published in the Washington Post, they posted the political version of 'somewhere over the rainbow,' as neo-Nazis scream louder through the media. Yang and his bunch, (which includes GOP pol Christine Todd Whitman), push a series of dangerous and libelous false equivalencies between the progressive Left, and the Trumpist GOP filled to the brim with white supremacists, Christian Nationalists pushing a dangerous theocratic model, and open Neo-Nazis.
Somehow, Yang's call to sing "kumbaya" falls flat. It takes a special kind of tone deafness to the suffering of minorities to push what can only be considered a unilateral surrender to Trumpist Nazis--for the benefit of white corporatists who are becoming nervous. I will discuss Yang's silly plan, (which is far too similar to the cowards Vichy), and the political reality of advancing Nazism.
As always, we will celebrate the Jackass of the Week.
