Liberal Elitists Hate the Poor
Liberal Elitists Hate the Poor
In case you haven’t figured it out, supercilious leftist members of the upper class only pretend to like the poor (or anyone else they consider below them on the economic ladder) when they can be convinced to surrender their independence, entrepreneurial spirit, and sense of personal accountability and cede all authority over their lives to big daddy government. Otherwise, these arrogant state fellators view the poor and working class with the same disdain as they would something smelly on the bottom of their Jimmy Choo sandal.
See, when those they consider inferior to them succumb to their big government plans, these elitist turnips get this feeling of satisfaction – like they did something to “help” the poor and oppressed. It gives them a turgid tyrant boner, especially since they’ll never miss the money that their politician pals are redistributing (or pocketing… or using to get themselves elected… or…), unlike the middle class to whom a few thousands bucks savings a year can be a treasure!
That’s why they also despise the working stiffs, those who pull themselves up by their boot straps, those who scrimp and save, work several jobs, and never rely on the state to pull them out of the muck. They do it themselves. Where’s the virtue in that? They don’t need the rich snobs to advocate on their behalf, get offended for them, and push redistribution schemes for them, so there’s nothing to stroke the ego there.
I recently ran across this Jesse Spector creature on Twitter. Apparently he’s some kind of sports writer, who writes about baseball, which makes him an “expert” on fiscal and economic policy, natch. Because he also apparently went to a grade school that cost his parents somewhere in the vicinity of $12,000 per year two decades ago. Jesse freely admits he grew up around a lot of rich people, so of course, he feels himself qualified to lecture those who are getting a tax break about whether or not they should celebrate an extra $18 per week they will be getting if they earn between $48,000 and $86,000 per year.
That’s roughly $1000 or so in savings per year, if you add it up. And while to someone like Spector, who is accustomed to high-end living, that $18 may not seem like a lot, to a lot of folks that’s cause for celebration – especially those of us who weren’t born with silver spoons in our mouths, who didn’t attend costly elementary schools, and who spent our lives living paycheck to paycheck and looking at a night out at a pizza joint with our parents as something to treasure, because we just didn’t get it very often.
Spector spectacularly stepped on his own dick when he chose to ridicule the tax cut, because you see, some folks will use it for a dinner out that doesn’t live up to Spector’s sophisticated standards.
Note the tone deaf, arrogant derision in Spector’s responses. You see, he and his arrogant leftist pals would never lower themselves to eat at a fast food joint, because it just doesn’t have linen napkins and crystal goblets to hold their Perrier. Their standards are much higher than that!
Meanwhile millions of people are happy just to be able to eat something other than chicken and white rice (yeah, that’s what we had nightly when we first came to this country and couldn’t afford beef – I gag at the thought of chicken even now because of it) once every so often. But to Spector, these are the hoi polloi – the great unwashed – whom he derides for not taking advantage of the government handouts for which he loudly advocates, because it makes him feel oh-so altruistic, benevolent, and charitable! See how he advocates that politicians steal what little money you make to redistribute to others they feel are more deserving because they can’t or won’t get up on their own two feet? So how selfless Jesse Spector is?
These are the same kale-munching, Chanel-wearing, gated community-dwelling shit weasels who sanctimoniously ask why you need guns for protection, or claim you hate little children, because only child-hating, callous, gun-humping jerks would oppose “universal background checks” (read: prohibition on private gun sales, which will effectively raise the cost of a gun purchase), or additional bureaucratic restrictions (which will also effectively raise the cost of owning a gun)!
Never mind that tools of self defense can be pretty costly. Never mind that jacking up FFL fees, increasing CCW fees, and implementing additional fingerprinting and other bureaucratic requirements costs money, and those costs will be invariably passed on to consumers. Never mind that for poor folks struggling to make ends meet, a firearm could be a cost-prohibitive endeavor. Never mind that some of these lower and even middle class folks don’t live in gated communities guarded by armed security personnel, but reside in just the type of neighborhoods where the tools of self defense could come in most handy!
People like Spector and other leftist hyenas don’t care about the poor. They would rather see more victims than see their misguided, tyrannical agenda derailed by honest efforts to preserve some shred of dignity and reward personal responsibility.
We can’t have that! It wouldn’t stroke the egos of those who roll around in money and condescendingly look down upon those who do not. It’s much more preferable for them to advocate for increased taxes, which they will never miss, and pat themselves on the back for “doing their part” to help the poor, while observing the objects of their “charity” with patronizing superiority.
Make no mistake, folks. Liberal elitists loathe you if you won’t allow them to force you into government dependency.
Happy holidays, and congrats on your soon-to-be fatter paycheck!
