HOW DEMOCRATS LOST THE WORKING CLASS

democrat republican otherWe need alternate political parties here in the United States. The working class and the poor are ignored and demonized by both major political parties. Yes, there was a time when things were different but pretending nothing changed won’t help the situation. Both major parties are corporate-owned. 

It’s difficult to remember a time before it became a hopeless cause. Let’s take a brief look at November 15th of 2016, when the British news outlet the Guardian of all papers acknowledged how the Democrats of 2016 had more in common with Republican pigs like the Bush Family and the Cheneys than they did with former Democrat presidents like Franklin Roosevelt or John F. Kennedy.

Back in that November the Guardian (link below) observed “The Democratic party once represented the working class. But over the last three decades the party has been taken over by Washington-based fundraisers, bundlers, analysts, and pollsters who have focused instead on raising campaign money from corporate and Wall Street executives and getting votes from upper middle-class households in “swing” suburbs.” Continue reading

DEMOCRATS STILL HOSTILE TO THE WORKING CLASS AND THE POOR

democrat platform hatredHere at Independent Voter site Balladeer’s Blog I’ve long pointed out that one of the many things that drove so many like me away from the Democrats is the way that financially comfortable Democrats are every bit as callous and uncaring toward the working class and the poor as the richest snobs ever were.

Democrat court jester Stephen Colbert aka “Joe Biden’s C*ck-Holster” recently expressed The Party’s pompous disdain for the rest of us. Colbert said he’s “willing to pay more for gas because that’s the cost of a clean conscience. Also, he’ll “pay $15/gallon because he owns a Tesla.” Got it, peasants?

The Democrats’ attitude is still “Screw you people for not being one percenters like us media cheerleaders for The Party!” Unfeeling pigs like Colbert don’t care how much you’re already suffering because of Joe Biden’s inflation and his other disastrous policies. Many of them also adhere to The Party snobbery which dictates that if you don’t like how much you have to pay for gas, just buy an electric vehicle.

To raise an old question, I’d like to ask Democrats “What is it about working men and women that you find so offensive?”

Anyway, all of this reminded me of the way American “comedians” are no longer irreverent or daring. Instead of the old saying about bold comedians being willing to “Insult a king to make a beggar laugh,” gutless snobs like Colbert prefer to “Insult beggars to make kings laugh.”

AMERICAN COMEDIANS: INSULTING BEGGARS TO MAKE KINGS LAUGH

Bill MaherMany readers have been asking me what I thought of the rancid Bill Maher’s deranged expression of the kind of snobbery that helped elect President Trump. I already addressed it in 2016 with this item from when the rancid Jon Stewart was the face of pretentiousness and pomposity. While the day-long Mardi Gras continues here at Balladeer’s Blog and we move on from breakfast wines to rum-based drinks enjoy this “encore” blog post.

Brown nose ON … Brown nose OFF: Jonathan Stewart – who STILL refuses to donate more to charity –  embodied comedic gutlessness by coordinating with the Obama administration to make sure he never offended them. That’s called being a propagandist and a panderer, not a comedian.

Comedy is at its best when it is irreverent. The more powerful the object of ridicule the richer the laughs. There’s an old saying about a comedian being so supportive of the world’s underdogs that “He’d insult a king to make a beggar laugh.”

American comedians have become such spineless panderers that they’ve lost any real edginess and especially any desire to be on the side of the underdogs. That would be, like, SO not cool, dude! Today American comedians would much rather insult beggars to make kings laugh.

These Court Jesters of the rich and powerful flaunt a deep disdain for the working class and the unfortunate. America’s comic performers of today sneeringly dismiss the working class and the poverty-stricken as “stupid” or “uneducated” the same way bloated rich pig Republicans dismiss the working class and the poverty-stricken as “lazy.” 

Jonathan Stewart older

*** *** *** **  Know what the exact opposite of an irreverant comedian would be? Jonathan Stewart. He took shots at ONLY the safest targets of the moment. Grow a pair and get back to us, worm.

 

The Jonathan Stewarts, Bill Mahers and Samantha Bees of the world would never be caught dead siding with the “ignorant hicks” who aren’t rich or don’t hold positions in their political party. The poor and the unfortunate are there to be ridiculed for the amusement of the ruling class and for the career advancement of those court jesters.  

Genuine satirical comedy follows the path of MOST resistance, but the current worms who play at comedy would rather side with the rich and powerful against the disadvantaged. These pompous pricks are about as “daring” as a bully ridiculing the nearest fat person or someone missing a limb. And ALL to put smiles on the faces of elitist jackasses.

Jonathan Stewart 3

One percenter Jonathan Stewart always sided with Obama – the most powerful man in the world – against the working class victims of Obama’s policies. What a guy!

Jonathan Stewart was so much of a lackey for the Democratic Party he used to meet regularly in the White House with Obama to make sure his humor was Government  Approved. How courageous! Bill Maher ridiculed the elderly veterans of what Brokaw called “the greatest generation” when their infirm bodies and aged minds hindered them from circumventing the barriers put up at war memorials during the government shutdown in 2013. Oh, if only one of them had fallen down and broken a hip! Such hilarity, right Bill?

And yes, I know, Little Jonny Stewart would sometimes pretend that Obama’s disastrous policies were good for the poor and the working class, yet NEVER had an actual member of the working class on his show. Probably because an actual member of the working class would have pointed out how damaging and heartless Obama’s policies really were.   Continue reading
