NYC Mayor candidate Andrew Yang is running for mayor and leads in the polls. He has a populist following and believes in things like UBI. He is against Bris Mila – he never said he would ban it but what could happen is Metzitzah would be banned. How do we defend this practice in such a progressive society?February 11, 2021 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm #1947377sifsei chachamimParticipant
Well we can just ask him straight out what his policy on Metzitza will be.February 11, 2021 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #1947451
He clarified his stance re bris milah that he’s fine with it on religious grounds
He’s talking about only because the parents want itFebruary 11, 2021 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #1947456charliehallParticipant
So far I am unimpressed by Yang. I wanted Max Rose to run.February 11, 2021 11:43 pm at 11:43 pm #1947485
Didn’t Yang recently promise to stop the city from interfering with Yeshiva’s and parents’ rights to choose the quantity and choice of what secular studies to offer in private schools?February 12, 2021 3:50 am at 3:50 am #1947521ruvainParticipant
He is a very intellegent and insightful young man, however, he is anti-QTrumplican so yall will criticize everything he says and does. If you need candidates and can wait 2 years there will be plenty of regular republicans looking for jobs from Georgia. THey actually have a little bit of integrity and emplthy too.February 12, 2021 8:09 am at 8:09 am #1947529

@Reb Eliezer, It does not mean he likes Jews it means he found a Jewish flunky to put on his payrollFebruary 12, 2021 9:06 am at 9:06 am #1947558☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

“And he circles back to Trump“
I wonder how long it will lastFebruary 12, 2021 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm #1947615bored guyParticipant
lol tds will last forever. and yang is worth one million dollars not rich at all. he has no real success, the only people who liked him were Asian people.
ubi is the dumbest idea known to man, according to his plan it will mostly be rich people who get the 12,000 dollars as people who are already getting government benefits won’t be eligible.
the worst thing is the left is an orthodoxy there is no such thing as a differing view they are all the same or kicked out.
his great idea that one day robots will do all the work and there will be no more jobs is a conspiracy theory. do a drop of research into the man and you’ll realize he’s the biggest screwball in the world.February 13, 2021 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm #1947738GadolhadorahParticipant
Yang appears to a very narrow segment of voters. Both McGuire and Stringer are probably th best qualified. Stringer has progressive creds but zero charisma. McGuire has great personality, role model for Black voters but his Wall Street background is toxic in the current political environment where the progressive vote is driving the election to the far left.February 13, 2021 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #1947755A Woman Outside BrooklynParticipant
Unfortunately the best candidate running has no name recognition. Many of you have probably never heard of Kathryn Garcia. She gets things done while everyone else just talks. Springer is the bigget panderer out there. I heard him on a forum of candidates and he spent the whole time kissing up to “black and brown people”. Don’t be fooled because he has a Jewish surname.February 13, 2021 11:46 pm at 11:46 pm #1947783👑RebYidd23Participant
If NYC elects another male mayor, people might think the voters are discriminating.February 14, 2021 8:21 am at 8:21 am #1947832Shalom-al-IsraelParticipant
Let’s hope racist Arab “palestinisn” radical Linda Sarsour has no influence …February 14, 2021 8:21 am at 8:21 am #1947833Shalom-al-IsraelParticipant
I agree with ‘sifsei_chachamim’ to just ask him straight out, on his actual ‘plan’ re bris. Though we know his beliefs in ‘theory.’February 14, 2021 8:28 am at 8:28 am #1947862
Has Yang said or indicated anything about Metzitza? Does he even know what Metzitza is?February 14, 2021 9:17 am at 9:17 am #1947885
#ujm, of for that matter does he know anything about anything besides coming up idea?February 14, 2021 9:25 am at 9:25 am #1947888
It’s a matter of hoping the least terrible candidate wins. There’s no viable good candidate.
