If anything, Van Jones and his ilk are ACTIVELY WORKING TO DESTROY the “middle class”.
They are the enemy of communism, being a “propertied class” that is “infected” with capitalism (ie, the right to be compensated for productive work effort).
In the old days, his enemies were referred to as “the bourgeoisie”. We should throw this term back at them whenever they try to marginalize “the wealthy”, etc.
All of what you say is true, though I’d be inclined to simply let their would-be follows hear the tune of our free market populist piper. (Or our free market populist Piper’s mom, if you will.)
Let Van Jones stir them to anger—and then let Palin offer the solution.
