1/My candidate was @AndrewYang

I can deal with him losing in a fair process. This wasn't fair. @scottsantens documented the media blackout.

And there's another factor. Bernie campaign surrogates and low level followers lied and smeared Yang. I have receipts. Let's go #YangGang
2/Let’s start at the top. AOC is the biggest surrogate for Sanders there is. Here is AOC lying about Yang's UBI with the regressive trojan horse talking points that #YangGang is so familiar with. And in the next tweet you’ll see…

3/…her talking about how awesome a campaign Yang ran, as if she didn’t push away thousands from pursuing him as a Bern supporter. There's a lot more. Keep reading #YangGang

4/Media. Here are two Jacobin writers pretending that VAT + UBI wouldn't be a progressive transfer of wealth. Then here’s a Jacobin hitpiece calling Yang a corporate salesman. Finally, after Yang drops out, they make the pitch for #YangGang to join. Isn’t that nice?
5/Campaign man Shaun King ignoring that Yang WANTS UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE TO COVER ALL AMERICANS and says so in the video King himself shared. Yang just doesn't want to do it how Bernie does. But Shaun knows most people won't watch the video #YangGang

6/Here's ANOTHER official Bernie surrogate Michael Moore, along with 70K+ followers liberal figure and Bernie supporter Matt Stoller jumping on that lying tweet from King to attack Yang.
7/Here is The Young Turks writer and Bern supporter Emma quoting one of those Jacobin writers and calling Yang's Freedom Dividend "Snake Oil". But then after Yang drops out, and #YangGang audience is up for grabs, it turns out the campaigns get along and support each other.🤔
8/Here is Bernie fan Robert Reich spewing such lies about Yang’s UBI that Yang himself had to step in and correct him. Reich never responded of course. Then proof that Bob likes to steal followers for Bern. Finally, him congratulating Yang despite helping to sink Yang’s campaign.
9/Here is Stephanie Kelton, who’s Twitter feed is full of pro-Bernie and anti-Butigeg articles as of 2/12/20, spreading lies about UBI. Also here is radio show host and Bern supporter Michael Brooks spewing hatred against Yang. Looks like he’s got love for Bernie though #YangGang
10/So that’s enough of the official Bernie surrogates and media figures and major followers. How about every day Bernie Twitter folks? Surely the everyday folks are nice, and its not just one person who is rude, right? Well, #YangGang, I think we know better by now...
11/...Well, its just a few, right? #YangGang
12/And its not just #YangGang that have noticed. People from all across the political spectrum have noticed bad behavior from so many Bern supporters. (This tweet storm doesn't even include the Project Veritas videso, which are worth a view on their own IMO)
13/I won't support a candidate with terrible policies and whose supporters lied/smeared Yang like I showed above. I'm part of the 42%. Dems can go play in traffic

For #YangGang considering Bern, remember the tweets above, who you're getting involved with, what they've done
14/Didn't expect an update so soon, but here we are.

This is an official account. One is right after Yang drops out and they want our votes. Then two days later they launch an unprovoked attack on #YangGang leader @scottsantens

Just a reminder of how Bern fans think of us
@scottsantens 15/Damn, another update.

For all those #YangGang who are thinking of joining Bern, remember that they helped destroy the candidate you love with lies and smears, and will do the same to anyone, even union workers just trying to survive.
