Controversial, anti-gay, Black pastor and radio host Jesse Lee Peterson recently stated on his show that Democratic presidential hopeful Andrew Yang “should go back to China.”
While criticizing Yang’s plan for the Freedom Dividend, a universal basic income that would give every American $1,000 monthly, Peterson declared, “There’s this little Asian guy or Chinese guy, whatever he is, he should go back to China, or wherever he came from, Andrew Yang.”
“See? You allow these people to come into our country and they come in with this socialist, communist ideas,” the commentator added.
Yang, a 44-year-old tech entrepreneur from Schenectady, New York, is the son of Taiwanese immigrants.
However, Peterson did not stop there, continuing, “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?”
While calling Yang a “beta male” and a possible “anchor baby,” the right-wing radio host once again repeated the same message, “What a sick person… They need to send him back to Taiwan or wherever he came from.”
This was not the first time Peterson has targeted Yang — in a previous show, he mocked the presidential hopeful, calling him a “girl,” for crying during a discussion on the topic of gun violence and the death of a four-year-old boy.
Stating, “Poor baby, I think that’s a stunt, too. I don’t think it’s real.”
“Ain’t no real man gonna fall for that,” Peterson continued, “and really no real woman would fall for that, a female will, but not a real woman.”
The controversial host has been criticized by the media numerous times; in 2018, his mic was cut off by Piers Morgan after he claimed that the Black Lives Matter movement was “Founded by lesbians and homosexuals and radical social justice warriors,” on “Good Morning Britain.”
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Peterson has also previously thanked God for slavery and said that most Black people “lack moral character.”
