We often have heard Obama and the Clintons and the Democrats talk about the middle class as if they want to protect and nurture it. Yet history shows that leftist policies are, in the long run, ruinous to the middle class.
Socialism and communism actually wish to destroy the middle class. The reason is simple… the middle class is independent and does not need the government, i.e., Trump voters. In fact the government hinders the middle class which often outright opposes government intervention in the economy and in the daily lives of the citizens.
So if the middle class is destroyed then there are only the rich and the poor left standing. Then the rich socialists/communists like the ones in Silicon Valley and Hollywood and on Wall Street and in cities all over America can destroy and dominate the weak and aimless poor much more easily, through government handouts in exchange for votes.
This allows the rich left-wing vultures to take total control as they are doing in far-left California where poverty is growing and income inequality is increasing as the middle class flees by the hundreds of thousands every year.
On the other hand the socialists and communists cannot control the middle class, which fights back to defend what it has created for itself through hard work.
This is also why the middle class is thriving in the conservative states like Texas, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, Idaho and Utah.
This is also why the overwhelming majority of rich Americans today are on the Democrat left; they see the opportunity to seize full power and to have everything for themselves in their super-materialistic lives. In other words, every dollar taken from the middle class means a dollar in the pockets of ‘the rich’.
In California the elites are reducing the poor to living in tents, as a reported 150,000 homeless are doing on the streets of the state’s cities. Meanwhile Forbes magazine recently reported:
Democrats, in fact, now represent 41 out of the top 50 wealthiest congressional districts — and all 10 of the top 10 wealthiest districts, according to a recent election study.
For decades Democrats have claimed that Republicans are “the party of the rich”. Nikitas3.com has debunked this myth often. And Forbes offers more proof.
Nikitas3.com estimates that Democrats, including the super-wealthy, largely in cities and wealthy suburbs on the East and West coasts, control as much as 65% of the nation’s wealth. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook is worth more than the entire annual wealth production of the state of Montana!
In contrast there were jobs for all and prosperity for the growing middle class back when the conservative so-called “robber barons” dominated our economy, like Andrew Carnegie in the steel industry, John D. Rockefeller in oil, and Henry Ford making cars.
They were the richest men in America and they have been called “robber barons” to disparage them. Yet they created vast wealth and technology for America, along with jobs and prosperity for the middle class.
On the other hand the real “robber barons” are today’s socialist/communist elites like those in Silicon Valley and like George Soros who are getting richer as Americans, and particularly the middle class, get poorer. This is the trend that president Trump is trying to reverse and thus it is no surprise that Silicon Valley hates Trump. He is cutting into their wealth.
But you will never see the Silicon Skunks referred to as “robber barons”. Never.
Obama has long pursued the strategy and tactics of communist agitator Saul Alinsky who hated the middle class calling it “materialistic, decadent… degenerate… and corrupt.”
Karl Marx wrote in The Communist Manifesto, “The middle class owner of property… must be swept out of the way and made impossible.” Marx also called for “the violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie (the middle class).”
Soviet communist dictator Vladimir Lenin recommended annihilating the middle class by “grind(ing) them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.”
This is sick. For example New York state has a far-left governor, a radical Democrat party based in New York City, a weak Republican party, and an 8.25% statewide sales tax rate. This tax hits every resident hard along with sky-high taxes on everything else including incomes, gasoline and property.
These taxes harm the non-poor, working-class and middle-class whites most since the poor routinely go to the government for help while the white middle class and working class are more reluctant to do so.
Many people who have the wherewithal to leave New York state are doing so. They have had enough. Those who are fleeing – millions in the last few decades – are generally younger, skilled, ambitious and educated white people who are headed for the middle class. This leaves behind an older, poorer, sicker, blacker and browner population that can be easily controlled with government handouts in exchange for votes, i.e., Democrat power.
As the middle class shrinks wealth becomes more and more concentrated in the hands of the rich socialists and the state gets poorer and poorer and more liberal, with wider income inequality just the way Democrats want it. Just like California.
This sounds familiar; just look at how Democrat policies have undermined the middle class all over America in the last 50 years. The middle class has shrunk dramatically as liberalism has killed tens of millions of good manufacturing jobs, or thwarted their creation, through the excesses of labor unions, taxation, regulation, corruption and ‘green’ laws.
Democrat hatred of the middle class also is racist since the middle class is largely white while Democrats are becoming the party of blacks, hispanics, immigrants and other radicals.
That is why president Trump won the 2016 election. He appealed to the white middle class and to poor and working-class white people who want to rise up into the middle class.
Unfortunately tens of millions of Americans no longer can aspire to rise up as the manufacturing economy has seriously declined, with those jobs going to third-world nations.
This is a key element of globalism/socialism – to transfer jobs and wealth from the middle class in the advanced nations to the poor nations. It is classic socialism on a global scale. Meanwhile president Trump is fighting to bring these jobs back to help America.
Entertainers, actors and left-wing media skunks continually mock Trump voters. Look at this story from Breitbart News about yet another blatant anti-white media racist:
ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel attacked supporters of the border wall crowd fund effort in a rant Thursday, accusing them of being “very dopey people” who are donating their “meth money.”
“The president might not need Mexico or Congress to pay for the wall at all, because there’s some very dopey people ready to pay for it themselves,” Jimmy Kimmel joked.
“This Trump supporter, Brian Kolfage, started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $1 billion for the wall. He launched it on Sunday, it’s already up to almost $9 million. This is what people do with their disposable income when they don’t have loans from college to pay off.”
“Donating money for a wall that will never exist — it’s like starting a college fund for Harry Potter,” Kimmel continued. “It’s a waste — a more useful thing to do with your money would be to go outside and feed it to a bird. But, you do have to admire the sacrifice they’re making — I mean, a lot of these people are dipping into their (illegal drug) money for this.”
This is literally how many Democrats think of us Trump supporters, that we are uneducated drug addicts. And they are not afraid to say it. Their Fake News media friends protect them. This is brazen and despicable racism.
If we conservatives disparaged blacks or hispanics in this way we would be savaged in the media.
This is shocking but it is to be expected in a nation fueled by left-wing hatred led by our #1 hater which is Obama himself. He incited the new generation of racial and economic division that plagues our nation today.
We conservatives stand with the middle class of any race, religion or creed. It is an idea that goes way back in history. The Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle said these things about the middle class:
The most perfect political community is one in which the middle class is in control, and outnumbers both of the other classes.
When there is no middle class, and the poor greatly exceed in number, troubles arise, and the state soon comes to an end.
A government which is composed of the middle class more nearly approximates to democracy than to oligarchy, and is the safest of the imperfect forms of government.
The best political community is formed by citizens of the middle class.
Democracy appears to be safer and less liable to revolution than oligarchy. For in oligarchies there is the double danger of the oligarchs falling out among themselves and also with the people; but in democracies there is only the danger of a quarrel with the oligarchs. No dissension worth mentioning arises among the people themselves. And we may further remark that a government which is composed of the middle class more nearly approximates to democracy than to oligarchy, and is the safest of the imperfect forms of government.
No state will be well administered unless the middle class holds sway.
Good thoughts. After all the middle class has historically represented stability, good behavior, self-improvement, restraint and a willingness to earn its way to a better life. Those are all positive traits.
If you want your power lines fixed or carpentry done at your home or if you need your computer repaired you don’t go to “the poor”. You go to the middle class. They are the ones who keep the world going around.
Those of us who lived through the 1960s now have a clearer picture of why the ‘hippies’ were taught to hate “the bourgeoisie” (the middle class).
Back then it did not make sense since most of the so-called baby-boomer ‘hippies’ came from the middle class. But the ‘hippies’ were instructed to hate their own parents and to be ashamed to have come from the middle class even though our middle-class parents were wonderful people who had made enormous sacrifices for us and given us good lives.
This is also why TV programs from the 1950s and 1960s that made the white middle class look good have disappeared like My Three Sons, Ozzie & Harriet or Leave It to Beaver. They have been replaced by shows that portray the white nuclear family as non-existent or totally dysfunctional, just like the Democrats want them.
Liberal states like Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Vermont and California are experiencing an exodus of younger, skilled and educated populations that make up the middle class. These people have been fleeing for decades by the tens of millions to the conservative states like Texas, Georgia, North Carolina, Idaho, Utah and Tennessee.
Meanwhile here is what happens to the middle class, and to everyone else including the poor, when hard-line leftists/communists take over. Agence France Presse reports:
Deserted streets and closed stores surround the imposing statue of late Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez in his birthplace of Sabaneta, 20 years after the enigmatic figure launched the country’s revolution.
Sabaneta, in Barinas State, has not forgotten its most illustrious son and commemorates him with almost fanatical devotion, marking out important sites from his life in much the same way as Holy Land tours paying homage to Jesus Christ.
The “Route of Conscience” visits the house of Chavez’s grandmother Rosines, where he was born on July 28, 1954.
It includes the house he grew up in, his school and a tree under which South American liberation hero Simon Bolivar once camped — and from where Chaves launched the campaign for his last election.
Yet Sabaneta has not been spared the crippling financial crisis that has left millions of Venezuelans in poverty.
More than five percent of the population has fled the country due to shortages of basic necessities such as food and medicine.
And life just keeps getting harder in this town of 28,000 inhabitants.
“If I told you, you’d cry, buddy. Here in Sabaneta, in west Venezuela, there’s been a tremendous toll,” Jose Pacheco told AFP.
Almost everything in the country has become too expensive for the general population, while there are frequent public service failures in transport, running water and electricity supply.
Nonetheless, this 42-year-old who works in a car wash near the six-meter (20 foot) tall statue still views Chavez as “a great leader.”
“It hurts me how my town is suffering. Families that don’t have anything suffer, and if they have (the means to buy things), one day there’s a price, the next day there’s another price.”
Hyperinflation is a major reason behind the hardships endured by most of the population.
The International Monetary Fund predicted it would surpass a staggering one million percent this year.
And the global financial institution’s outlook for 2019 is even worse, with a mind-blowing 10 million percent inflation prediction.
Yessiree, that is socialism at work. And Venezuela has the biggest oil reserves in the world. But that is no match for socialism/communism. It can turn gold into dirt faster than any other system of thought.
Britain is Becoming More Politically Extreme
Fox News reported:
A British neo-Nazi couple who named their son after Adolf Hitler was sentenced Tuesday to several years in prison for being part of a terrorist group.
Adam Thomas, 22, was sentenced to six years and six months in prison, while Claudia Patatas, 38, was jailed for five years, Sky News reported.
Thomas and Patatas were found guilty for being members of National Action, a far-right neo-Nazi organization in the United Kingdom that was banned in 2016. Judge Melbourne Inman QC, who handed down the sentence, said the group had “horrific aims.”
“Its aims and objectives are the overthrow of democracy in this country by serious violence and murder, and the imposition of a Nazi-style state which would eradicate whole sections of society by such violence and mass murder,” the judge said.
This happens since Britain does not have the freedoms that we Americans have. In the US you cannot be jailed just for being a member of a fringe group. If we did that then half of all Democrat voters would be in prison.
Why aren’t more ‘antifa’ thugs in jail, people who are not just members of an extremist group but who incite and commit actual acts of riot and violence?
It is because they get lenient judges to go easy on them even though they commit actual acts of extremism (beatings, arson, riot, murder, etc.) This is the judicial selectivity of the socialist left – punish certain people for how they think, like throwing conservatives off of Facebook, but go easy on people who commit real acts of violence.
This is how dictatorships arise, friends.
Britain is a very scary place and getting scarier all the time. They even jailed a white native-born Brit named Tommy Robinson for merely reporting on the trial of a muslim “rape gang”.
Meanwhile radical islamists inside Britain preach every imaginable treason and evil and there is no penalty, while their followers carry out repeated acts of violence. This shows the danger of Britain becoming selective about its freedom, which means that it has no freedom at all.
At the same time The Telegraph website reports about another type of radicalism in Britain:
School children will be taught that “all genders” can have periods in new sex education lessons, in a victory for transgender rights campaigners.
The advice to teachers was approved by Brighton & Hove City Council as they try to tackle stigma around menstruation.
The new advice follows a council report which said: “Trans boys and men and non-binary people may have periods”, adding that “menstruation must be inclusive of all genders”.
Bins used for menstruation products will be provided in all toilets for children, according to the report.
It also calls for transgender students and pupils to be provided with additional support from a school nurse if needed.
The report recommends that “language and learning about periods is inclusive of all genders, cultures, faiths and sexual orientations. For example; ‘girls and women and others who have periods’”.
Brighton & Hove City Council said in a statement: “By encouraging effective education on menstruation and puberty, we hope to reduce stigma and ensure no child or young person feels shame in asking for period products inside or outside of school if they need them.
“We believe that it’s important for all genders to be able to learn and talk about menstruation together… Our approach recognises the fact that some people who have periods are trans or non-binary.”
The Daily Mail website adds that this is the result of “40 pupils who ‘do not identify as [the] gender presented at birth’”:
Earlier this year, The Mail on Sunday revealed how an NHS guidebook stated that males living as women were being invited for tests to check for cervical cancer – even though they do not have a cervix.
Brighton & Hove City Council said last night: ‘By encouraging effective education on menstruation and puberty, we hope to reduce stigma and ensure no child or young person feels shame in asking for period products inside or outside of school if they need them.
Britain is going to the extreme under left-wing European Union control. This is why they voted for Brexit.
