'Conservative' Scarborough Echoes the Left: 'Working Class' Shouldn't Vote GOP

Those ignorant working-class Republicans are just too dumb to realize they should be voting for us!

That, in a nutshell, is a key Democrat kvetch when it comes to economics. Put in somewhat more academic terms, Democrats like to say that working-class Americans are "voting against their economic interests." The notion was made famous by leftist author Thomas Frank in his book, What's the Matter with Kansas? And the complaint has been echoed countless times since by a parade of progressives.

[snip]

Scarborough today also parroted that same classic leftist trope. It came in his Washington Post column that his wife Mika Brzezinski read from at length this morning. Here it is [emphasis added, and note that the final sentence is Scarborough writing in his own words, not quoting the professor]:

"As Vanderbilt history professor Jefferson Cowie wrote in The New York Times in May, “The new class war would be waged not against the old corporate robber barons but the impudent snobs of the cultural elite.” That shift may explain why so many working-class Americans have been voting against their own economic interests for so long."

Will this fraud Scarborough please stop trying to pass himself off as a “conservative.” Anyone who thinks that working people who support small-government Republicans are “voting against their interests” is, by definition, a liberal.

Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.

Everyone should just do what you tell us. That’s the only fair system of government.

Looking at that photo, it’s obvious that Mika dresses little boy Scarborough.

A sweater, with just a “touch” of white collar is so groovy. /belch!

‘Conservative’ Scarborough Echoes the Left: ‘Working Class’ Shouldn’t Vote GOP

Prior to Trump, maybe you could argue that, but certainly not now. The Dems are just as responsible for out sourcing as the Republicans.

They don’t have a lot of options. The Democrats openly want to exterminate them; the GOP just wishes they would quietly die off, but acts like they represent them. At least the GOP holds the line on 2A ... for now. Officially, the GOP also holds the line on abortion ... and that counts for something.

He’s closer to being Bett Midler than a Conservative.

The working class should vote their self interest. And it AIN’T Antifa/BLM, which seems to be the focus of the Green New Deal Democrat Socialist party now.

Anarchy and nihilism have no place in a civilized world. America used to be civilized.

P-whipped Joe isn’t a conservative and neither is the GOP.

Conservative and Scarborough should never be used in the same sentence.

I watched it this morning... though Joe was going to blow a gasket. Joe’s obsessed with our President - must be something to do with late stage TDS...

What would you know about the working class Joe? Was Mika’s husband a working man when you were banging her? Was your wife a working woman when you cheated on her? Have you ever actually been a member of the working class?
