Millionaire radio pundits on the corporate state payroll like Rush Limbaugh and other pseudo-conservative GOP mouthpieces often cry on air about the “class war.”
They mean, of course, the theoretical war that the working class wages against the 1% a la Occupy Wall Street-style protests – not the real war the elites have waged on the middle class for four relentless decades.
Even on the honest-to-God, Main Street populist right that still exists outside of the D.C. suburbs, the 2009-era Tea Party protests were initially largely focused on Wall Street’s brazen financial crimes. They sensed correctly that their falling quality of life was directly tied to the bankers’ green lust.
