Class War? Blow It Out Your Ass, Whore!

I just want to state for the record (if I haven’t already) that when Republicans use the phrase “class war,” I get deeply annoyed.

You see, if a Democrat (or other non-partisan) suggests that there’s deep income inequality in our country, that there are perhaps policy changes that could help those less well off, specifically that millionaires and billionaires might pay a little more in taxes, Republicans will accuse that Democrat (or other non-partisan) of starting a “class war.”

It wasn’t a war on the middle class when President Reagan fired the unionized air traffic controllers back in the early 80s. It wasn’t a war on the poor and working class when that same president created the myth of the “welfare queen” in order to begin the dismantling the safety net of the welfare program. It wasn’t a war on what remains of the middle class when Governor Walker of Wisconsin decided to take away collective bargaining rights for public employees. It’s not a war on the working and middle class when the Republican party talks about privatizing Social Security or eliminating Medicare and Medicaid. It’s not a class war when deficit reduction burdens every class but the upper class.

No, it’s only a “class war” when you suggest raising taxes on some of the richest people in the world.

Go fuck yourself, Dickheads.
