“They said you were high class, but that was just a lie.” – Elvis Presley, “Hound Dog”
White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain brought criticism on himself last week when he retweeted a post from Harvard economist Jason Furman. Furman claimed that rising inflation and nationwide supply chain issues that have delayed products from reaching store shelves is a “high-class problem.” Klain’s retweet was accompanied by two emoji hands pointing at the original tweet, so is it safe to say he agreed with Furman?
This attitude has stopped many Americans from getting involved in Washington politics. Politicians are not looking out for the majority, despite what they may say. That is one of the main reasons Donald Trump was elected President in 2016. It continues to be a strong and loyal following.
The definition of “Elitist” helps focus the mind. Dictionary.com: “(of a person or class of persons) considered superior by others or by themselves, as in intellect, talent, power, wealth, or position in society.” The “by themselves” part is what many Americans think of these elitists. It’s called the Leona Helmsley attitude. The late New York hotelier once claimed, “We don’t pay taxes; only the little people pay taxes.” You can’t get more elitist than that.
Washington’s highest ranking officials ride in chauffeured limousines. The elites also have security that will accompany them wherever they go. They don’t have to worry about finding a parking spot in garages where rates can be $40 or more, much less pay for them. Their staff is there to pamper them and satisfy their every need, some of which can get them in trouble. These perks come at a cost to taxpayers. Many of these perks are paid for by the taxpayer when members of Congress retire or, in rare cases, lose their seats.
We have then the vaccine elites headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci and President Biden. How do I explain this?
Elitists are not limited to “the swamp.” They are everywhere. Terry McAuliffe, the democratic candidate for governor in Virginia, said in a debate with his Republican opponent, Glenn Youngkin, “I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.” Youngkin believes more parents should be involved in their children’s education, especially on subjects such as critical race theory and transgender policies, with which many disagree. McAuliffe and other elitists believe that parents should leave their children to the state’s education system, then let them do their thing.
NBC News covered the Southlake Independent School District’s top administrator, who encouraged teachers to give their students an opportunity for success. “opposing” perspective about the Holocaust. Is there a different perspective? The fact that it didn’t happen? It was predicted by Jews. These books can be viewed in opposition.
East Lansing public school elitists announced that they were Cancelling observed events of Halloween and Valentine’s Day. In a letter reportedly sent to parents, officials said they were doing so out of concerns over hurt feelings and families that felt “uncomfortable” with the observances. What about families and children — likely a large majority — who feel quite comfortable with these observances and have become used to them over years past? It’s too bad for them. The elitists don’t care.
Author: The late, great author Tom Clancy Although it was a bit inelegant, this is what may have been said best:
“There are people in government who don’t want other people to know what they know. It’s just another example of elitism. Elitism is what I hate. Show me an elitist, and I’ll show you a loser.”
