I see the children of the global business elite marry each other and settle in London or New York or Mumbai. They send their children to the same schools and are alert to all class markers. And those elites, of Mumbai and Manhattan, do not often identify with, or see a connection to or an obligation toward, the rough, struggling people who live at the bottom in their countries. In fact, they fear them….

Donald J. Trump
If you still believe in the bogus poll numbers and pro-Hillary fairy tales being promoted by the Main Stream Media…well, stop it. You really should know better by this point in time – and in fact many, perhaps most, of “we the people” are indeed wise to the lies.
The truth is that Donald J. Trump is kicking butt and taking names. Media deception notwithstanding, he has left Clinton in the dust. The pro-Clinton (i.e. pro-globalist) media has been forced to resort to cooking polls, smearing Trump, and playing “hide the Hildabeast.” The question is not who is winning, but how long the media can keep up their bogus façade of a tight race.
Be that as it may, the main focus of this article will revolve around the globalist elites – specifically their hubris, unwarranted vanity, and supercilious snobbery. Twits…and twitettes.
To cut to the chase, like many of you I have been immersed in a very steep learning curve ever since Obama became POTUS. For example, until Obama’s regime I had never heard of (or at least paid attention to) Saul Alinsky, Cloward/Piven, “The Frankfurt School,” Agenda 21, Fabians, George Soros, “Club of Rome,” Gramsci/Lucaks, Frank Marshall Davis, Sunni and Shia Islam, Keynes, Mises/Hayek, and on, and on, and….
One of the more surprising conclusions I reached as a result of my studies is that left wing elites are typically insufferable snobs – and that epiphany soon morphed into the realization that elites, regardless of what political wing they belong to, are all insufferable snobs (well, perhaps not all…but near enough as to make no difference).
Trump – the “Blue Collar Billionaire” – understands the frustrations, anger, and righteous indignation of “we the people” to a degree that perhaps no presidential candidate in my lifetime has (and I’m no spring chicken). Trump has an unapologetic love for America and its people, especially its downtrodden middle class. He says that the people who attend his meetings love him, and you know what – he’s right. And he returns that love.
Compare that to the disdain historically shown by the Left toward the middle class – the long despised bourgeois. Snobbishness is what it comes down to – “How dare they ape their betters. They dare to think they can equal our exalted station in life, our stellar intellects and moral superiority? As if. Down with the bourgeois, up with the proletariat!” (“Down with the bourgeois, up with the proletariat!” can be read as “Down with the uppity middle class and replace them with docile sheep”).
At the end of the day what you get with such corrupt tunnel-visioned arrogance is, of course, the mass of people living in poverty while a relatively small elite lord it over them. That’s not progress, that’s not progressive, that’s the “same old/same old” formula that the world has known forever. One of America’s greatest achievements was its large, robust, respected middle class. Not anymore, not these days – and it is all the result of very intentional social engineering.
I’m not going to try and beat people over the head with how snobbish the elites are…you either see it or you don’t, or you’ll come to see it or you won’t. In any event, I should mention before leaving the topic that, as I implied earlier, the right wing elites (the “I’ll vote for Hillary before Trump” faux conservatives) are every bit as snobbish as anyone on the left.
In closing I would like to remind readers of all the people who have said that they will leave the country if Trump is elected president. A sobering thought indeed — let us all pause and reflect on the results of a Trump win for a moment….
Callooh! Callay! O frabjous day! Here, let me help you pack – musn’t miss your ship or plane or whatever. Bye-bye, so long, see ya – don’t let the door hit you on your butt on the way out. Do forget to write. Sayonara, hasta la vista, bon voyage! Ta-ta, off you go.
Whew, thought they’d never leave! Thank you Lord! Good riddance to bad rubbish.
