Dem Party won’t admit it has become the party of wealth

By Victor Davis Hanson for JWR:
How often during the last year of wokeness have middle- and lower-class Americans listened to multimillionaires of all races and genders lecture them on their various pathologies and oppressions?

University presidents with million-dollar salaries virtue-signal on the cheap their own sort of “unearned white privilege.”

Meghan Markle and the Obamas, from their plush estates, indict Americans for their biases.

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors Brignac decries the oppressive victimization she and others have suffered — from one of her four recently acquired homes.

Do we need another performance-art sermon on America’s innate unfairness from billionaire entertainers such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z or Oprah Winfrey, or from multimillionaire Delta or Coca-Cola CEOs?

During the 1980s cultural war, the left’s mantra was “race, class and gender.” Occasionally we still hear of that trifecta, but the class part has increasingly disappeared.

  1. Republican Party was never the ‘wealth party’. It began as the antislavery party. Then it became the lower taxes and less government party, which Dems used to somehow paint it as the party of the rich. Similar to the way they paint it as the party of racism – the opposite of reality.

  2. It is the party of do nothing wealth. Marry it. Inherit it., Trade to get it..in other words use conservatives creators productive effort to get more money.
    FEW if any of them are the owners of businesses and trying to grow them and create jobs and wealth. They are all users and takers. Sure weathy conservatives invest in the kmarket but at the root of it all they are trying to create.

  3. They can’t discuss their wealth. That’s leads to it source, theft.

    They’ve stolen much from the next 2-3 generations
