Something has been bothering me ever since sitting through the DNC (besides the throbbing headache I got from all the yelling and screaming.) What is bothering me is the Democrats insistence that everything they do is for “the middle class.” This is a term that is widely used but never defined. Who are the middle class? In my opinion the middle class are all of us out here in the flyovers just trying to live our lives without some government cone-head dictating how many stalks of asparagus we need to eat with every meal. We’re the ones who get up in the morning, commute to a job or a business we built, put in an 8-15 hour day, raise kids, go to ballgames, coach little league, go to church on Sundays, volunteer at coat drives, pay a mortgage, own a car, see a blockbuster movie over the summer and like it, go to Chili’s and eat a Bloomin’ Onion and like it, have one or more rifles, shotguns or handguns handed down from a beloved relative, have been hunting or have eaten something freshly killed at some point in our lives.
So it puzzles me when I hear the Lefty Democrats trying to court “the middle class.” They HATE us. First of all, we’re employed. This makes us the enemy. We’re not the “downtrodden” who needs the “hand up” they keep talking about. We’re the ones who have too much. They’d like you to believe they’re talking about people who make more than you but they’re not. Even if the government confiscated all the wealth of the country’s wealthiest millionaires and billionaires they’d run out of money in a matter of days. (Someone did the math. It’s true.) The only way they can get the trillions more money they want to fund all their great ideas is to take it from us; the many that make up the middle class.
They hate meat eaters, which is who makes up most of the middle class. They want us to eat more kale for inexplicable reasons that probably have to do with making us too weak to fight back a government invasion. They hate guns, and the middle class owns lots of guns. They are constantly trying to limit the middle class access to their guns (while at the same time doing nothing to limit the “downtrodden’s” access to the illegal gun trade which leads to 30 deaths a week in Chicago.)
They hate children. While the middle class is busily trying to get pregnant by any means necessary (invitro, fertility drugs, adoption, strange Chinese herbs, acupuncture, etc.) the Left is trying to convince us we love abortion. Actually, the middle class hates it. It’s the “downtrodden” areas the Left targets with their abortion mills aborting minority babies and smashing Hitler’s record. They pretend birth control is as important as the air we breathe, but the middle class disagrees. We tend to think affordable gasoline is more necessary.
They hate food chains we all love. They hate Chili’s and Olive Garden and McDonald’s and Chickfila. They do their best to convince us the food is poison but we don’t listen and we still go to Red Robin for a giant heart attack on a plate because we like burgers and we’re adults, thank you very much. They tell us we should go to shi-shi raw food bars and drink wheat grass and all other manner of food that my dog wouldn’t touch. They want us to buy expensive organic produce with weird names I can’t pronounce. The middle class chooses to buy normal produce, wash it well and pray over it before ingesting.
They hate God. They hate religion and the morality it brings. They have fought to break down American morality for many many years and they may be on the verge of succeeding in some circles, but not in the middle class. God is still very alive in the middle class. We go to church, Bible studies, MOPS groups, take part in women’s ministries, feed the poor, introduce drug addicts to healing and not food stamps, collect food and give it away and march in the right to life walks. The Left doesn’t want you to give to the poor, they want to FORCE you to give to the poor of their choice. (Like “poor” teacher’s pensions who make $76,000 a year in Chicago average.)
They hate stay at home moms. If you’re raising your children at home yourself, you are part of the hated middle class. They spread rumors that it’s a “luxury” for you to be where you are. They whip up class envy against you even though you may have sacrificed a second car or a bigger house so you could raise your own children. But beyond that, they hate you because you are raising your children with those middle class values they hate so much. And if you homeschool, you’re an even bigger threat because they won’t be able to get their social claws into your kids in state institutions. You could be raising the next John Adams and that is totally unacceptable to the Left. What they want are more community organizers like Saul Alinsky and Barack Obama. They want more union drones, more group-thinkers and collectivists not more Sarah Palins. They certainly don’t want free-thinking patriots.
They hate patriotism. If you even need an example, just remember the Democrats who wouldn’t wear flag pins after 9-11 or the president himself who refused to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem. Their use of our colors is like blasphemy because they mock the red white and blue by using it for their anti-American agenda. They support flag burning but are against Koran burning. And yet, they want you to believe they share your middle class values. They lift up soldiers at their convention while at the same time refusing to let those on the battlefield fight and win the way they can. Instead we take casualty after casualty. They don’t love soldiers, they hate them. And soldiers’ families? They send them form letters with Obama’s signature in auto-pen when they lose their heroes. They constantly try to undercut funding from soldiers to give it to teacher’s unions. They don’t love soldiers. You know who does? The middle class. Don’t be fooled. If you’re middle class, no one in the Democrat party loves you or wants the best for you. They simply want to raid your life to pay for their voters’ “needs”.
Perhaps we should start a third party called The Middle Class party.
The following article in the American Spectator finally shed the light on this thing that has been pulling at my mind. Bravo Jeffrey Lord! They don’t love the middle class. They hate you. Read the whole thing. It’s illuminating.
