"The reports of my death are greatly exaggerated." - Yang, probably He has some prominent members in the party including Ro Khanna (https://twitter.com/RoKhanna/status/1293279346757709830?s=19) and Ted Lieu (https://twitter.com/tedlieu/status/1293253520200593408?s=19) saying he should speak.


Tilikumfan69

Wait until he finds out that cabinet position Biden promised him isn’t real either


your_worm_guy

He's been pretty clear that he hasn't been offered a cabinet position yet, and often talks about what he plans to do if he isn't a part of Biden's administration.


robotzor

Will these guys ever understand that when you play with the party and you're not in the club, you will *never* get anything? You will *never* be part of the club? These folks need more Jimmy Dore in their life. Considering AY was on his show, he should realize this...


tyrosine-

Yang is supposed to be smart, how did he fail to see what was happening to Bernie and learn from it? Of course just endorsing Biden (who has the platform least like his) and trying to be a good little pet isn't going to get your platform moved forward or gain you any favor. If you're not part of the club then you're just an annoyance to them, and doing exactly what they want just loses all the leverage you have


robotzor

> how did he fail to see what was happening to Bernie and learn from it Because he wanted to be in the club that admits no new members and that can be blinding


[deleted]

I think he actually did a good job, along with Bernie (again), in showing that our big tent 2 party system is actively killing (has already killed?) our Democracy and we need massive change. America needs to abolish the district system in its current form and adopt a representational system closer to Germany’s. Will we? Not likely, so this country is probably fucked.


IHaveNeverBeenOk

This country has been fucked since Eisenhower. It's been a slow plod downhill ever since. World War II gave too many assholes too much money. We won't recover. Europeans may be so lucky, but the states will not recover. The psychopaths have found their positions of power, and they won't be relenting any time soon. Via the republicans, who shove it in your face, or via the Democrats who try to keep it hush-hush, the will of the powerful will be done. Sad that I live in the political climate I do. Nearly any other period would have been better. I hope my grandkids get some portion of the way out of this.


YouHaveTakenItTooFar

Yang is too good natured. He isn't street smart but very intelligent policy wise. This was used against him


JD22A

Too bad dore only offers pessimism with zero solutions.


robotzor

Every time he tries optimism he gets burned. Maybe because the only solutions right now sound very pessimistic, since those are the only options we're left with?

Saying "Trump bad" is the only requirement for a liberal to support you at this point.

>Dems really do hate their young supporters. They always have.


JD22A

They also are probably bitter at yang for suing new York when they literally tried to cancel the NY primaries to help suppress the local progressive vote. Andrew Cuomo the architect of that bullshit is speaking at the convention.


AzureRathalos97

You capitulated, promoted party unity so early on, and in the end weren't even thrown a bone.


Cyclopher6971

No good deed goes unpunished


CuriousMaroon

Exactly. He should not be surprised that he was not invited to speak.


ZombieBobDole

Haha wholesome Yang clapbacks are the best clapbacks: "Maybe I endorsed against one too many incumbents. 😀" https://twitter.com/AndrewYang/status/1293221434010083329?s=19


Ipeipeyuha

He opened our eyes to UBI, of course they wouldnt let him, especially during a pandemic that also is seeng such a large transfer of wealth upwards.


115MRD

>He opened our eyes to UBI People were pushing for UBI way before Yang, hell NIXON supported it in the 1970s. I support it, but I cringe at the idea Yang was the strongest or first voice for UBI.


SilentLennie

Not first, but the polls of the general public on the topic changed the most in favor for UBI when he was running in the primaries (I've not checked, but probably excluding this pandemic period).


TB12orDIE

Yang did open peoples eyes to UBI bc before him no major politician would even mention it. Yes Nixon and McGovern both supported UBI in the 1970s but that’s was 50 years ago. No one (that actually knows what they’re talking about) would ever say that Yang was the first to mention UBI... mostly because Yang routinely points out all the people before him and currently that support it. However I think you can say that in the recent years he was definitely the strongest voice. There’s a reason someone who started running with zero name recognition, no campaign money and no base was able to stay on the debate stages (minus 1) before dropping out and polling nationally at 3-5%. Yang made UBI mainstream (granted this was accelerated by the pandemic) much like Bernie did with M4A.


[deleted]

Milton effing Friedman, the daddy dick of libertarian economic theory supported it, he called it "negative income tax," but it's the same thing


Momordicas

No one in my inner circle knew anything about UBI before yang. After him, its damn near a household topic and everyone i know has favorable opinions of it.


beepbeepfratelli

i mean yang's UBI was a botched interpretation but no, the idea did not have any public support until very recently. that's definitely down to Yang

Yang and Bernie weren’t corrupt enough to become president.

Yang Gang here, but not sure why he expected any support from the DNC after their lack of support/acknowledgment during his campaign. Of course they don’t want you, you’re one of the Dem’s who aren’t corrupt yet.

pj4242

but warren is speaking at the convention, and yang is apparently now too


HugePurpleNipples

He should, I'd rather hear from ANY candidate that lost in the primary over Bill and Hillary Clinton. IMO the Clintons are those friends you had in HS that ended up huffing a bunch of paint and breaking into the police impound to steal their car back and you just don't want to acknowledge you were that close with them. Let's just move forward, they're slimy as fuck and Yang is a respectable guy, AOC is also a better choice. They snubbed a lot of better speakers than the people they cling to and I still think Hillary needs to be prosecuted for her emails. It's wrong and it shows that our political elite are exempt from laws.


[deleted]

Poor Yang. He deserved way better tbh.


[deleted]

Okay, let look at this objectively though. I know YangGang (me included) consider Yang to be a massively influential figure, but in the mainstream eyes that’s just not the case yet. Candidates who did significantly better than Yang in the primary (Steyer and Bloomberg for example) weren’t invited to speak, so why would we expect any kind of special treatment on that front? I mean trust me, I want him to be on that stage more than anyone, but pragmatically wise it just doesn’t make all that much sense. EDIT: didn’t realize Pete was speaking, so I replaced his name with Steyer.


JD22A

Yeah at least they had the foresight to realize inviting two billionaire 'candidates' that literally bribed their way into the primaries might be bad look.


[deleted]

Lmao you know what, I’ll agree with you there. Although near the end I did start to come around to Steyer.


JD22A

Steyer had the perfect opportunity to show his care for the environment when the Democratic party literally voted down the GND proposal which contains most of what he claimed to also support when he was running. It was the perfect put up or shut up moment and he was silent.


pj4242

I agree, but Pete is speaking.


robotzor

Candidates like Kasich were. That's the basis of logic we have to approach this with. Edit: guess we're rehabilitating Kasich now too. Ohio resident checking in...all I can do is sigh

Bullstang

Oh whoops I phrased it wrong, I meant Gen Z because I was under the impression his base was among that age bracket


Retrojazzer17

Thats what happens when you bend to the DNC. They take you for granted and disrespect you. I feel for Yang but he should have saw it coming.


eg14000

When did Yang bend to the DNC? When he endorsed the democratic candidate over trump? Biden win was clinched by the time he endorsed him. He didn't bend to anyone, he's fighting for change. To end poverty directly


U_A_9998

Cry me a river Yang, this is what you get for trying to instigate systemic change with your grassroots movement! /s


BenSoloGhost

And no Beto! I’m Texan and this is a big blow to me. I already hate the Kamala Harris talk, but now this. It’s laughable if anyone thinks Biden has Texas in the bag. I can almost hear “the blue wave is coming” for another 4 years


othelloinc

> if anyone thinks Biden has Texas in the bag Biden shouldn't direct any finite resources at Texas. If he wins Texas, he's already won the whole thing. He needs to focus on the marginal states in case the race tightens.


Aethelric

The idea that Biden's strategy would involve Texas at all is hilarious. The Biden campaign might throw some endorsements out in close races for House seats, but I'd expect nothing else.


Hilldawg4president

Is Beto even popular in Texas anymore? I was under the impression the "we'll take your fucking guns" thing (paraphrasing) pretty much ended his favorability and career in the state.


consideranon

That was truly a stunning blunder. As in, maybe this guy's a right wing plant and intentionally trying to sabotage the Democratic party, kind of blunder.

People also like to ignore that he not only voted for the Iraq War, but was the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and was a strong advocate of our invasion. Or that he spearheaded and helped write the 1994 crime bill. Or his role in passing the PATRIOT act, used to spy on US citizens. Yeah he's such a good guy though, and totally the "most progressive candidate ever" according to the zealots on r politics.


ketzal7

Or that he was friends with segregationist Strom Thurmond and even eulogized him at his funeral.


LiterallyForThisGif

He also believed in the DNC party apparatus. Classic blunder.


MerlinsBeard1007a

Yeah, I wasn't too happy when he did that. I remember a lot of Yang supporters at that time following along with him. Guess they are growing up fast, same thing happened to Bernie supporters in 2016 when they followed his advice and threw their votes in the garbage.

Don’t let the loudest voices on the internet skew your perception of reality [Yang never got above 5 percent in the polls](https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/us/2020_democratic_presidential_nomination-6730.html)


[deleted]

I'm a Yang supporter. You're right that he never got above 5% in any polling aggregates but I still consider that an absolute win. This guy had absolutely no experience in politics. No campaign infrastructure. He's said himself that he started running by just emailing all his contacts. To go from a nobody (not even rich, Yang's NW was <10mil) to polling 5% and making it to the majority of the debates? I consider it a win. He's also still in his 40s. I'm looking forwards to him running again. His approach to politics is totally different from anyone else. Yang 2024 (or 2028 if Biden is still alive)


TB12orDIE

Your looking at nationwide polling. Yang could only afford to campaign and advertiSe in the early states. Also, we saw in 2016 how the polling showed Hillary would beat Trump. Additionally this presidential cycle had the fewest polls since 2000. Yang can’t fund his own campaign like Bloomberg. Yang had zero base when he announced his campaign and had no name recognition. He was repeatedly left off polls and was ignored by the media to the point he was left off graphics and was replaced by lower polling candidates. Other politicians could overcome one or maybe 2 of these disadvantages if they strong name recognition, is a billionaire, or is loved/pushed by main stream media. And even with all this working against him he made every debate but 1 and raised $16m in Q4. (Perspective E Warren raised $20m). Yang had almost no chance of winning but I think we need to look at all the factors not just nationwide polling.


Luckxy

He literally got 8% nationally


thefreeman419

Let me guess, you’re gonna cite me an individual poll and claim it’s proof he had massive support? I cited RCP for a reason, it aggregates the polls, which removed the effects of outliers.


jupchurch97

> The Yang hype was huge and extremely real. Cope.

Honestly, Yang is my second favorite candidate. And he should be speaking because he, and people like him need to be the future of the party. But, again, the DCCC is not interested in deviating from pro-establishment Democrats.


SmokeyBlazingwood16

Where tf does Yang get off? He thinks he’s like the new Obama-2004? Bruh you have to get elected to something first, nobody knows who you are


othelloinc

To be fair, Obama in 2004 was the *keynote* speaker. Al Sharpton (who had never been elected to anything, but ran for the Democratic nomination in 2004) *was* given a speaking role at the same convention.

Bloomberg: spent $500m on his campaign and had huge name recognition Tulsi: got the delegate from American Samoa I think your criteria is too simplistic.


Fleudian

On the other hand, if "got the delegate from American Samoa" is all it takes to beat you, you lost by a fucking lot.


Drithyin

He bowed out way before that, though. He wasn't up against either of them on Super Tuesday. That said, he got rolled in any primary where he competed.


TB12orDIE

He dropped out before hand. Try again


poitinpdx

Thats what losing is in the primaries


SmokeyBlazingwood16

Man, how did he get beat by both those two? Making me feel sorry for the guy


burntcheezeitz

He only ran because he couldn’t get anyone to listen to his ideas in Washington. He’s an entrepreneur, most likely not a Democrat but was in way over his head Give him time though. He’s young, motivated, and has some good “new” ideas.


SmokeyBlazingwood16

> Give him time though Absolutely, all ribbing aside he's clearly a smart guy and capable. If he was running in my Congressional District I'd probably vote for him, but running for the Big Seat was, like you said, way over his head. I would really like to see him prove himself in Congress or at the state level first


burntcheezeitz

Yea and I made the mistake of taking the headlines that this guy just wants to give out “free money” for real and later listened to him on JRE and found he was much more genuine and intelligent, especially about AI.


Cael87

But he kneeled at the alter of biden and sucked mightily, don't people who abuse power and walk all over others treat their pawns with some respect? I mean, I know they hated Andrew's guts and only really wanted his endorsement then for him to fade into obscurity and never be seen again, but he literally pulled a turncoat and sucked **hard** for them - would they care so little about someone they dislike to just toss them aside like that? I mean, who in the world could have seen that coming?


International-Desk64

I’m pretty sure Andrew Yang said he would endorse whoever he thought had the largest chance of winning to which I recall he endorsed Bernie first, until Bernie started losing so he switched to Biden. It was a while ago but I believe it happened like that.


Cael87

Nope, he dropped out and said he wouldn’t endorse anyone until the convention. Then he endorsed Biden right ~~before~~ *after* Super Tuesday when Biden had only won ~~1~~ *fewer* state*s* *and delegates*.


International-Desk64

That’s not true Biden had gained at least four states and yang said he would endorse whoever the nominee would be


Cael87

You’re right, it was after Biden had won some, but it also was after Bernie had won more than Biden - and well before the convention where the nominee is decided - which was his promise, to endorse the eventual nominee. He tried to weasel out of it by changing how he phrased it, **after** he endorsed Biden. I was off by a week, my bad - but you were also wrong about him endorsing Bernie before that, and yang lied about waiting til the nominee had been decided.


SmokeyBlazingwood16

It’s not a fellatio problem, although there’s always room for improvement in that area, it’s a lack of experience and reputation


Cael87

It's a lack of experience at fellating. He should have cupped the balls.

Sold his soul to the Devil and then is surprised when he gets monkey pawed. He joined CNN as a correspondent for God sake after selling out his own ideals.

Do you have an actual rebuttal to that? He soldout to Biden and CNN after running a campaign rooted in Sanders style progressivism, and now he's surprised when no one at the DNC wants to hear him out after he gave away what few cards he had.


9001co

????


Scott_Nano

Sorry. I guess if I had to explain more in depth. Yang sold out his good ideas, though technocratic in nature, when he dropped out and started toeing the party line. He was pushing for his ideas within an apparatus that was actively quashing him much like Joe is doing to Bernie. Trump is crazy, narcissistic, fascist evil, but Dems roll up in a nice suit and use legacy folks like obama to spin yarns about how things will go down if they simply stop fighting and work together. Buttiegege and Klobuchar both dropped overnight and endorsed the guy who was barely clinging to third at the time, and who's now the front runner. From this collaborative effort, Sanders got exactly none of his staple ideas on the docket, and Yang went to work for CNN to infiltrate and change the story from within the "working" system. His faith in the idea that these are inherently good people who he could create change with, much like the people who believe Joe is the best choice simply because he's not Trump, are misguided. I don't disagree that at this point, it is the only sane option, but notice how through it all, the Establishment democrats have not had to meaningfully change on any regard and yet still get exactly what they want as we all stew. Now Yang is getting snubbed by the same people he tried in good faith to become a part of. Thus the naivety.


CuriousMaroon

I guess his coereced (?) endorsement of Biden didn't get him very far...


Scarment

All the people in this thread saying that Yang is an outsider so why should he speak are just being ignorant. Yang has been in the politics game a while, he worked with Obama dating back to 2012 where he was named a Champion of Change by Obama. And there are multiple speakers on the list that were not elected positions, such as Michelle Obama and Jill Biden (obviously important people, but if the criteria if that they needed to be elected, they do not fit) and the criteria that they need to be an insider is also unfair due to the presence of Mayor Pete (couldn’t even win a spot on the DNC) and Kasich are on their. All I’m saying is that there is no set criteria on how they pick and could have easily put Yang there to speak on stimulus packages during COVID


Erik-Priebe

DAMN you all so CLEVER huh??? Seeeeeriously, I don't want to say anything because obviously you ALL talk to damn much. Stupid stupid little Americans. I am from Sweden and I never seen anything wrong about Yang. But yes, get rid of Yang, get rid och Sanders. Those guys are so dumb! This is how you sound to me. Fuck me and stop being so fat in your head, thank you

What policies make him a shithead though? He had inventive ideas and they were excellent compromises. But I can’t think of one policy that makes him a shithead.

If someone who’s never held elected office or been in the military can become president, I don’t see why Yang can’t speak at the convention while John Kasich, a republican, is.

Maybe because we're in the middle of a pandemic in which a dozen countries have instituted a short-term form of UBI? It's not crazy to think that his position on the importance of UBI is more relevant than anyone would have guessed 9 months ago. What does Buttigieg have to say that's useful to literally anyone?

Maybe because he was the champion of UBI, a very attractive idea rn.
