What Class Warfare Looks Like


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.

  1. I’ll let you in on a little secret that most Americans understand but seams to fall on deaf ears on the left.

    A majority of Americans support the actions of the successful in American because we plan to be successful ourselves one day.

    Just because the lunatic left is happy living in mediocrity their whole life does not mean you have the right to drag the rest of the country down with you. If you don’t want to work to be successful then it is not the responsibility of the successful to subsidize your mediocrity.

    • If people wihout jobs are just lazy and weak, why are Republicans blaming Obama for the 9% unemployment rate? It can’t be his fault.

    • Because, unlike the lunatic left, we conservatives know that not everyone without a job is lazy and weak. A lot of them want jobs and every business owner wants to hire more people, they only need to be able to do so.

      If Obama would encourage the Democrats in congress to pass legislation that would reduce the number of useless regulations we would see a boom in job creation. There are other things Washington can do to get out of the way of those that create wealth.

      I hold Obama accountable for the current unemployment rate because all he has done is increased the burden of government on those that pay taxes and campaigned about how evil job creators are. We need a President that supports production in America, not condemn anyone that tries to succeed.

  2. There’s been a lot of talk about “class warfare,” but I think the ubiquitous class structure labels (lower, middle, upper) are losing their usefulness (especially considering the incredible shrinking middle class) for helping us understand our economic differences and conflicts. I suggest we try these class categories: Dependent, Working, Rich, Crazy Rich. Right now the Crazy Rich are causing a lot of damage to our economy.
