In his latest piece bemoaning the state of California, Victor Davis Hanson suggests that the liberal masters of California are quite comfortable with the fact that the middle class is leaving California in the millions.
Would-be Calexit leader Shankar Singam, in a recent television appearance, was unapologetically candid in celebrating the departure of the middle class from California. Indeed, he saw it as a sort of win-win bargain for the state: The tired people are leaving, and the energetic people are replacing them.
I don't think liberals really understand what they are doing. Their whole shtick is to play ruling class saviors of the helpless victims against the the cruel oppression of the evil white middle class. Do they not realize that if they abolish the evil middle class they will have abolished the enemy by which they rally the helpless victims to their sideq? If there is no middle class left in California then who will be the enemy of lefty politics?
I will tell you, based on Lee Kwan Yew, former Prime Minister of Singapore.p In a multicultural society, people vote according to their race and religion. And I bet that the old politics that has served our liberal friends so well will convert into a politics in which liberals don't get to direct traffic as in the olden time. In fact I wouldn't be surprised to see a politics of the lower class against the precious -- and rich -- people of San Francisco, Marin County, and Silicon Valley. Of course, I could be wrong about that.
Yep. Liberals may be patting themselves on the back for teaching those racist sexist homophobic middle-class Californians a lesson and sending them packing out of state, and reducing the Republican Party in the state to a shell. But I don't think they will like what comes next.
But then we all know that liberals are clueless about politics. They all know and can recite the latest lefty meme. But they don't have a clue about why we have three branches of government, about why we have the electoral college. And if it comes to that they don't understand the First Amendment. The whole point, liberals, is to permit unpopular and bigoted speech. So it is right out in the open. But liberals think that the First Amendment is there to allow liberals to advance their progressive religion to bend the arc of history towards justice. And then shut the bigots up.
