"There is this little Asian guy or Chinese guy or whatever he is”
Far-right radio host Jesse Lee Peterson has said that Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang “should go back to China.”
Peterson was made the comments whilst criticizing Yang’s universal basic income proposal that would provide $1,000 a month to all U.S. citizens aged over 18.
Describing the scheme as “communist”, Peterson went on to attack Yang’s ethnicity.
“There is this little Asian guy or Chinese guy or whatever he is, he should go back to China or wherever he came from,” Peterson said.
“You allow these people to come into our country and they come in with their socialist, communist ideas,” he continued.
“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,” he added. “Beta male. They need to send him back to Taiwan or wherever he came from.”
Peterson is an anti-gay controversial minister who once said that gay couples “are not mentally capable of handling the stress of raising children.”
