Just watched Friedman on CNN with Anderson Cooper
It's time to challenge not only the GOP RWingers but pundit who continue to call folks on our side "elite liberals." What do they mean by "elite liberals?"
Do they mean, Harry Truman, Jimmy Carter, Johnson, Clinton, Obama were "elite liberals?? Do they mean AOC and all the other women who came to office in 2018 were "elite liberals?" Is Joe Biden an "elite liberal." What do they mean. The last time I read anything about most of our Democratic Presidents, with the exception of FDR and JFK, most of them came from modest and even humble backgrounds. Clinton and Obama were children of broken homes with absent fathers, raided by single moms and working class grandparents.
I think I can identify some "elites" though: Let's start with DeVos, Munchin, Ross, and over half the millionaire GOP in the Senate. Remember those "elites" who already have left the administration?
I am tired of the cover for folks who voted for Trump as people who resented the "liberal elites" looking down on them and deciding how they should live their lives. When, in fact, for most of them it was nothing more than a sincere attraction to someone who is as racist, misogynistic, and homophobic as they themselves are. It wasn't about being denied jobs and being poor because the "libs" were giving all the good jobs to those "others." BS!! And if they mean by government telling them how to live that passing laws to ensure equal justice under the law, non-discrimination in housing and employment, or protecting our environment so that we have clean air and water and safe places to live...then screw them!!
i just wish for once a pundit or journalist would challenge any person, Democrat or Republican, to define what they mean when they use those terms as a pejorative. Just once will someone ask, "What do you mean by "liberal elite?"
understood this liberal elite label either. If anything, its the republicans that are the elitist. They tend to have more money and many think they are better than others who have less. All you have to do is look at the fact they want to keep people down by keeping the minimum wage low for example. Time for Dems to turn the tables and start talking about the republican elite.
are the conservative strict contructionist judges.
