(JustPatriots.com)- Remember when so-called “moderate” leftist Andrew Yang came out in support of podcaster Joe Rogan when the extreme-left mob tried to get him canceled from Spotify? Well, the failed 2020 Democrat presidential candidate just withdrew his support after extremists took clips of Rogan saying the N-word out of context and published it as a video online.
The clip, which saw Rogan referencing the word but not specifically using it, was shared online as part of an effort to get Spotify to remove his show from the platform. They only resorted to the video after they failed to get him removed from Spotify for speaking to doctors and medical professionals who are skeptical of the government’s COVID response on his show.
Yang defended Rogan initially.
“I don’t think Joe Rogan is a racist — the man interacts with and works with black people literally all of the time,” he said on Twitter.
“Do I know black friends of Joe’s who would swear by him? Yes I do,” he continued.
It prompted a major backlash from left-wingers.
Even Jaime Harrison, the Democratic National Committee chair, responded on Twitter in faux outrage.
“Dude…seriously!? You joking right Andrew? Is that now the new defining line…working with folks?!” Harrison said.
It worked, too, because Yang soon deleted his tweets and then issued an apology.
“I like to believe the best of people — especially if I’ve met and spent time with that person. Sometimes it makes me miss something. I think we should have the capacity to forgive people – whether a podcaster or a mayor — if they mess up. Maybe it’s because I mess up too,” he said.
What, exactly, did Yang “mess up”? He defended someone who isn’t a racist from false accusations that he is a racist.
And even after Yang left the Democrats and started his own party, he’s still capitulating to the extremists he left behind.
Yang is just as bad as any Democrat, isn’t he?
