Talk about useful idiots:
Herman Cain recently criticized the Occupy Wall Street protesters, saying, “Don’t blame Wall Street. Don’t blame the big banks. If you don’t have a job and you’re not rich, blame yourself.”
At Tuesday night’s CNN debate, Cain stood by his comments — to loud cheers from the audience.
“I still stand by my statement,” he said.
Republicans have been waging relentless class warfare on behalf of the rich ever since Ronald Reagan gave us trickle-down economics. It’s very profitable.
What’s truly amazing is the Party’s success in conning so many ordinary Americans into siding with the oligarchs and voting against their own interests. Love the rich. Hate the poor. Watch yourself get squeezed.
It’s economic Stockholm Syndrome.
