There’s a class war going down

One thing that even the dim bulbs in the media should understand by now is that there is in fact a class war going on, and it is the rich and powerful who are waging it. Anyone who does anything that empowers the little people or that threatens the wealth and power of the plutocracy must be destroyed. There is a reason for these clowns going after Think Progress and unions, just like there is a reason they are targeting wikileaks and Glenn Greenwald, Planned Parenthood, and Acorn.

Kanye West had it wrong, George Bush didn’t care about POOR people.  And Obama in many ways is actually worse.  Obama gives lip service to the cause of justice, mouthing empty words of liberty and equality.  But equality cannot exist in a system with such incredible gaps between rich and poor.  If they ever quit doctoring the unemployment numbers, we might be looking at genuine unrest.  The best we can hope for is to go the way of Tunisia and Egypt.  I don’t know if Americans have enough restraint to make that work.
