CHARLOTTE HAYS: Class Warfare: The New Bigotry.

One of the most disheartening aspects of the current presidential campaign season has been President Obama’s relentless class warfare strategy.

You could hear the president’s contempt for those who have been successful in his “you didn’t build that” speech.

There is something else disturbing: the president’s class warfare rhetoric seems to imply that the rich have somehow stolen from the rest of us. If they weren’t so rich, we would be better off. It should not come as a surprise that this reflects a gross misunderstanding of how capitalism works.

Well, where would he have learned anything about how capitalism works. Also, it fits his general tendency toward demonizing opponents.
