Everyone active in the right-wing internet sphere, whether disappointed in Trump or not, has heard of Andrew Yang, and the #YangGang. I’m here to prove that the yang phenomenon was an astroturf perpetrated by discord trannies and grifters.

This article will not be touching on any of Andrew Yang’s policies, only on his “grassroots” movement, and how it isn’t so organic.

Discord Trannies

If you've ever visited the chans, you would know it is riddled different interest groups vying for power, mostly 8chan and 4chan, specifically on /pol/. "Shilling" can be done by one person, or a group of people, it can be done by federal organizations, Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), or just everyday people who want to push an agenda. In the case of YangGang, there is documented proof of yang supporters organizing in discord servers to push Yang as a viable alternative to Trump, on all platforms, mostly focusing on 4chan and 8chan.

Astroturfing is the practice of masking the sponsors of a message or organization (e.g., political, advertising, religious or public relations) to make it appear as though it originates from and is supported by grassroots participants.

Does any of this look organic to you?

Yang's very own NGO

Yang's deputy chief of staff, Carly Reilly, works for a sketch-ass company with a vague, eerie description. According to their own words, they create “some of the world’s most innovative content across all forms of media.”

The company develops, produces and distributes award-winning projects in a variety of media including television, digital, feature films, music programming, commercials, graphic and interactive design, exhibitions, and live events, with offices in New York, Los Angeles, Berlin, Sydney and Shanghai. The company’s global network has given it a foundation for identifying and incubating in-house and new talent, while offering their client base a worldwide platform for the production, development and distribution of content.

The fuck does this even mean? Don't worry, it gets even worse, this is what is on their own website https://www.radicalmedia.com/about

We are not just a production company. We are not an advertising agency. Nor are we a television studio. Or a technology incubator. We simply make things. And help others make things. Because, at our very core, we are collaborators. We are a community of artists, directors, producers, coders, thinkers, makers, and doers who try to embrace the future. We don't specialize in one thing because a good idea can be anything. But we think we've made a few beautiful things so far. And what excites us the most is what we have yet to make

A meme is an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture—often with the aim of conveying a particular phenomenon, theme, or meaning represented by the meme. ... Memes spread through the behavior that they generate in their hosts.

This is a company that makes memes to influence people culturally and politically, and they have direct ties to the #YangGang movement.



Conclusion

#YangGang never was and never will be a serious movement, the inorganic nature of the shilling on /pol/ was obvious to anyone with half a brain who was watching. You could only be fooled into believing it was organic if you are an easily influenced zoomer who was told #YangGang was a serious alternative to Trump by the insincere grifter e-celebs you idolize online. You don't want to be left out of the cool kid's group, do you?

  1. It wasn’t completely an astroturf; I think I first read about Yang on Daily Stormer and Occidental Dissent before on 8chan, and Counter Currents also had some good content on his ideas. The deflation happened at the first debate when he didn’t stand out, and supported decriminalizing illegal immigration. That was too far; supporters had hoped he would realize you can’t have $1,000 a month for free and open borders. Worse still, he made Russian interference a fixture, casting doubt on his ability to resist “advice” that is certain to come to sanction, bomb, or invade countries our generals and think tanks hoist up as phony threats.
    I still intend on voting in the Democratic primary, for Gabbard. Among other things, she is the only Democrat I know of who accepts the Mueller report and wants to befriend Russia! Can only imagine voting Yang if he shapes up or Gabbard leaves the race.
