Andrew Yang told to “go back to China”

Right wing pastor and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson declared on his show that “there’s this little Asian guy or Chinese guy, whatever he is, he should go back to China, or where ever he came from, Andrew Yang.”

Peterson made his remarks while blasting Yang’s universal basic income plan which would give every American $1,000 monthly.

“You allow these people to come into our country and they come in with this socialist, communist ideas.”

People for the American Way, a liberal advocacy group, discovered the clip and posted it as part of its Right Wing Watch project. You can see the one minute clip in its entirety below.

Yang, born in Schenectady, New York is the son of Taiwanese immigrants.

According to Newsweek, Peterson has targeted Yang before. He mocked the presidential candidate after he cried during the discussion of gun violence and the death of a four-year-old boy.

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

The Southern Poverty Law Center says he once thanked God for slavery.
