8 July 2018. ALL Neoliberals Are the Enemies of Ordinary People… Both “Conservative” and Liberal”

________________________

Both Trump and Clinton are part of the same social class… they’re wealthy Upper Middles who want to break into the Upper Class, but can’t. The Clintons wanted to move to Tarrytown, but the Rockefellers kept them out (they ended up in Chappaqua… a burb full of wealthy no-accounts like them). Trump is a real-estate developer, which says it all… he has no chance of really hobnobbing with the Mellons, Carnegies, Whitneys, or Rockefellers either.

The last real “American aristocrats” to sit in the White House were FDR and George H W Bush (George W was an aristocrat wannabe.. he just didn’t make the grade, socially speaking). Kennedy was a Lace Curtain Irish wannabee… the Kennedys still aren’t completely considered real Upper Crust by the Social Register set. Therefore, Clinton and Trump fawn on the real oligarchs, because they lust to be in that set themselves. There’s no chance of that happening. The oligarchs will use them… but they’ll never consider them equals or allow them into the inner sanctum. What’s more, the Clintons and Trump know this, but they hope against hope that they real poohbahs will approve of them and anoint them “aristocrats” too.

Clinton and Trump come from the same sleazy social class. The reason that both cudgel ordinary people is that they want to be Uppers, but the Uppers won’t have them. Their disappointment comes out as resentment against ordinary folk, so Clinton and Trump allow their Upper Middle pals to screw working people. It can’t go on forever. If you squeeze people hard enough, it leads to a reaction… like heads stuck on fence posts. I don’t want to see it come to that, but Clinton and Trump aren’t helping matters (neither are minor neoliberal slumtickets like Paul Ryan and Maxine Waters… two shitbirds of a feather who enable the wealthy).

Both hate us and our aspirations. React accordingly…
