So, as we can all see, democrats are the party of the bicoastal secular progressive urban elites.  They are the super rich.   They are waging war against the working and middle class and main st heartland America.  We the people are in open resistance against these coastal elites and their media.  The culture war counter revolution has begun.

Victor Davis Hanson Democrats Have Become The Party Of The Elite And Super Wealthy



Hoover Institution senior fellow Victor Davis Hanson told FOX News host Tucker Carlson on Thursday's broadcast show that life is not sustainable if the current leadership remains in power because they just don't care about the citizenry.


VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: Well, it's not because, Tucker, they found a new agenda, this new socialist agenda that was so popular. I think what happened is the first thing they -- the Democratic Party became wealthy that bicoastal elite through globalization got these global markets, and you have a whole professional class that is not subject to any ramifications of these utopian ideas, whether it's climate change, or defund the police and never boomerangs back on them.

Then they said, well, we don't have the people, but we have the institutions, corporate boardrooms, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, K through 12 academia, so we can influence opinion without having a majority of opinion.

And then of course, they changed the demography. We've had about 40 million people come in the last 40 years, and right now, we have 50 million American residents that were not born in the United States, and they feel that the majority of them will be loyal to the Democratic Party that invited them in.

And still, it's not enough. Still, they are looking at a disaster in November. So now they're saying, well, you know what, in good Jacobin or Bolshevik fashion, we've got to re-educate young people, get them while they're young, indoctrinate them. And so, they're trying to do that, and they want to change the system.

They're saying, well, if we can't indoctrinate them, maybe we can get rid of the filibuster, get rid of the Electoral College or pack the Court or have a national voting law, but all of us has a common denominator, and that is they are the party of the elite now. They are the party of the wealthy, the party that despises the Middle Class, and they seek power for an agenda that nobody wants, and they have these crises to do like January 6th or the Ukrainian war, whatever the thing is, they use these levers of influence and power and it is still -- I don't think it's going to be enough.

I think they're looking at a landslide of rejection in November and I think that Elon Musk is a precursor. So, was the C-SPAN implosion, so was the Disney implosion, so was the Netflix implosion, so was the Virginia election implosion, a lot of indicators, a lot of symptoms that they have a reckoning. That's terrifying them...

HANSON: Yes, I think it is. Because you see, it's not just political. People, as you say, they are not really interested just in the issues, it is existential. They can't find food that they can afford, they can't fill up their car, they don't feel safe when they go into a big city.

They don't feel their kids are being educated or they're being propagandized. So it's a 360 twenty four-seven phenomenon. It's a totalitarian effort. And you can see the pushback in social media. You can see it with some grassroots school board. It's not just political, they feel their very lives are at stake. It is not going to be sustainable if these people are in control any longer because they don't care.

Joe Biden doesn't care about the price of gas. Elizabeth Warren doesn't care if people can't afford, you know, plywood at the lumber store. They don't care.

They are revolutionaries. They are ideologues. Again, they'd rather be wrong and they would rather lose and be right than be wrong and win. That's how ideological they are.

Yawn, and of course the e GOP is the party of the working man right? Gimme a fucking break.

[DELETED]  both parties prioritize the interests of the wealthiest above those of everyone else (in many cases our reps are members of both clubs), the only difference is the democrats will at the same time try to throw the little guy a scrap or two from the table while the GOP kicks them.

There are establishment Republicans who are still aligned with the new world order and the urban corporate elites. Their power in the GOP is waning as we reject those people and that life as part of our multiracial working and middle class coalition

Lol you’re an idiot if you think these “grassroots” movements and the dipshits you are sending to congress aren’t being bankrolled and working in service of the ultra rich. Of course they are, there ain’t shot grassroots or authentic tic about them, hence why they so enthusiastically support legislation designed to do nothing but benefit the very rich.

Why do they do this? So that they can land a job after leaving office and make some real money. Their time in office is more of an audition to show how big of an ass kisser they can be. The real money is in the TV spin-offs, think tanks, and lobbying groups that operate on behalf of their financial backers.

You describe today’s democrat party quite well.  The GOP is on a different path now.

The democrats certainly do not.  The working class sees the GOP as its hope for future survival.

Are you talking about the same working class that just unionized part of Amazon?

Or are you talking about shit kickers who spend their weekends shooting beer cans off fence posts?

I have no problem at all with forcing the unionizing of Amazon if that’s what their workers want.

It was the NLRB with appointees by a Democratic president that made this possible.

I'm not sure what your definition of elites vs. working class is but here is a link that describes the party affiliation of the 10 wealthiest families in America:

And here is the relevant passage:

  1. Walton –  Republican  — The family owns the Walmart corporation. The Walton family fortune is estimated to be about $130 billion.
  2. Koch –  Republican  — Businessmen, owners of Koch Industries, a manufacturing company. Koch brothers have a net worth of about $41 billion each ($82 billion together).
  3. Mars –  Republican  — Own the Mars candy company. The three children of founder Forrest Mars are worth about $78 billion together.
  4. Cargill-MacMillan –  Republican  — The Cargill-MacMillan family owns 90 percent of the largest privately-owned corporation in the U.S. The family, as a whole, is worth about $49 billion.
  5. Cox –  Democrat  — The Cox family owns a number of auto consumer sites and services (Kelley Blue Book, AutoTrader.com, etc.). They have an estimated net worth of $41 billion.
  6. Johnson (S.C. Johnson) –  Republican  — The Johnson family is known for their cleaning products and hygiene products. They are valued at $30 billion.
  7. Pritzker –  Both  — Founders of Hyatt. The family has a combined value of $29 billion in 2017.
  8. Johnson (Fidelity) –  Republican  — Overseers at Fidelity, ensuring the cash of millions of Americans. The family has a combined net worth of $28.5 billion.
  9. Hearst –  Republican  — The Hearst family owns one of America’s largest media companies. The family is valued at $28 billion.
  10. Duncan –  Republican  — The Duncan family works mostly with oil and pipelines. The family is valued at about $21.5 billion.

Of the ten wealthiest families in America, 8 of them are exclusively Republican and one of them is both Republican and Democratic.

The link I provided is talking about wealth families as opposed to individuals.

But your point is well taken. I will get back to you.

But I would like to add this additional point. There is a difference between the Democrats attracting wealth people and the GOP being a party that stands up for the working class.

The GOP disproportionately attracts non-college educated white males. It's not clear what the GOP will do for them besides stoke their resentments and keep their guns legal.

Actually I think that both parties do what they can to attract wealthy people.  These campaign ads don't pay for themselves after all.  There's so much money and power in politics and politicians can't get all that money by only attracting the working man.

As far as the GOP stoking fears and resentments, what is the Democratic party doing these days except using fear to energize their base?  It's an old tale but fear has been used by politicians to keep people involved for many many years.

Like stoking an irrational fear that the GOP is going to take away women's ability to access abortion and birth control?

Not just white males but most all working and middle class people and families. The uneducated white male is old news. We are multiracial and multigender now.

It’s not.it’s promoting a situation where each state makes its own decision men and women together on abortion in each state.

A model of liberty where each state gets to decide what liberties each citizen enjoys is at odds with the founding of our nation. The constitution was followed up in short order with the bill of rights to guarantee rights for everyone.

I'll have to admit to not being passionate about abortion one way or the other. I was brought up Catholic and abortion was simply never discussed in my church, my home, or my Catholic school. (Am I dating myself with this?)

This is an issue I had to figure out for myself. One woman I would be dating would be pro-choice and the next would be pro-life. No matter what I said was wrong and put a real damper on things.

Ultimately I became pro-choice. It's a messy ethical issue but I think the line of reasoning from Aristotle until now that we impart the notion of a soul unto a fetus after a certain amount of time (as opposed to conception) is correct.

We are multiracial and multigender now.  

I think the Democrats imagined they would cobble together a Venn Diagram of all women and all people of color and now the Republicans imagine they will cobble together a Venn Diagram of all men and all white people.

 I sneer at both exercises as examples of bait and switch politics.

A true working class politics is a politics of an increased minimum wage, an increased affordability of health care, affordable education, affordable housing, and a secured retirement.

Does the GOP have any plans for any of those things?

If a one size fits all must be and federalism / the states being laboratories for democracy must be abolished, then the constitutional right to life must be found to be from conception to natural death and immediately imposed from upon high upon all 50 states, DC, and the territories
