Jason Lee Peterson calls out Democratic candidate Yang

A right-wing minister and radio host suggested that Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang, who was born in New York, should “go back to China.” Radio host Jesse Lee Peterson called Yang’s proposal for a universal basic income “Communist” and called Yang a “beta male.”

“There is this little Asian guy or Chinese guy or whatever he is, he should go back to China or wherever he came from. Can we send this guy back to wherever he came from? Let him go over there and give away free stuff. Why is he coming here to turn America into the place that he left? What a sick person,” Peterson said. “Beta male. They need to send him back to Taiwan or wherever he came from.”

Yang was born in the United States to two immigrants from Taiwan. Yang is only polling at about 3 percent among Democratic voters, but his plan to provide every American with $1,000 a month as a “basic income” has drawn attention and criticism from both right and left.

Peterson has targeted Yang before, especially after he cried at a campaign event when discussing a 4-year-old victim of gun violence.

“Poor baby, I think that’s a stunt, too. I don’t think it’s real,” Peterson said.

The Yang campaign has not responded to Peterson’s remarks.
