Andrew Yang’s recent dehumanizing and pandering statements (https://twitter.com/kthalps/status/13…) in support of Israel as it engages in ethnic cleansing have rightfully earned him criticism. But, as Abby Martin already pointed out, Yang has a history of awful statements on the Boycott Divest Sanction (BDS) movement, in particular, which he misrepresents and equates with Anti-Semitism.
