Why Are the Western Middle Classes So Angry? | RealClearPolitics

One common gripe framed all these diverse issues: The wealthy had the means and influence not to be bothered by higher taxes and fees or to avoid them altogether. Not so much the middle classes, who lacked the clout of the virtue-signaling rich and the romance of the distant poor.

In other words, elites never suffered the firsthand consequences of their own ideological fiats.

Green policies were aimed at raising fees on, and restricting the use of, carbon-based fuels. But proposed green belt-tightening among hoi polloi was not matched by a cutback in second and third homes, overseas vacations, luxury cars, private jets and high-tech appurtenances.

In education, government directives and academic hectoring about admissions quotas and ideological indoctrination likewise targeted the middle classes but not the elite. The micromanagers of Western public schools and universities often preferred private academies and rigorous traditional training for own children. Elites relied on old-boy networks to get their own kids into colleges. Diversity administrators multiplied at universities while indebted students borrowed more money to pay for them.

In matters of immigration, the story was much the same. Western elites encouraged the migration of indigent, unskilled and often poorly educated foreign nationals who would ensure that government social programs -- and the power of the elites themselves -- grew. The champions of open borders made sure that such influxes did not materially affect their own neighborhoods, schools and privileged way of life.

Elites masked their hypocrisy by virtue-signaling their disdain for the supposedly xenophobic, racist or nativist middle classes. Yet the non-elite have experienced firsthand the impact on social programs, schools and safety from sudden, massive and often illegal immigration from Latin America, the Middle East, Africa and Asia into their communities.

Perhaps, but it also discusses the anger expressed by "non-elites" and why we'll show up in droves in 2020. We need to be aware the left plan to do the same, and beat them.
I think we will be fine.

Trumps riding a great economy and every expert says that its basically impossible at this point for it to turn before the election.

Presidents don't lose on that fact alone.

Then, after that, their top pick is Biden, the kiddy diddler, who changes policy based on if a popular Hollywood actress calls him up and tells him to do so.

If he falls we have Pocahontas or the communist to compete against or maybe the gay mayor who was....well a mayor.

This election might turn out to be the biggest joke in the entire of history of the US.

It is called the "NIMBY" Law. Pelosi is firmly behind it. NIMBY is Not In My Back Yard. She lives in a Multi-Million dollar house while her district STARVES. And shoots Heroin on the street. And bothers regular citizens. Not to mention using the sidewalk as a toilet.

Voters are going to have to pick one.

They believe in capitalism and free markets and competition - or they oppose globalism and want government to force business to use domestic products and labour and resources against the companies willl for the greater good of the nation.

Pick one. Not both, then blame the "elites" when that's impossible.

Pick one.

Show up to do what? Vote for the billionaire tax cutter for the elite?
We'll show up and vote for Trump to prevent globalism, and the demise of our country.


The chaos caused by MSM on behalf of entrenched politicians should be a wake-up call for every American. They are willing to ruin lives in order to ensure only those they chose will be elected as President.
