This latest form of “liberal” exploitation exposes yet again the liberal class for who they really are—opportunists whose operating methods are as callous as those employed in the textile mills in southern China. Is it any wonder that working men and women, who have been abandoned and betrayed by these self-identified liberals, hate the liberal class and its transparent hypocrisy? Is it any wonder that the some 40 million Americans who live in poverty are invisible to the wider culture? Is it any wonder that the tea party and all the lunatics on the fringe of our political spectrum put their cross hairs on the liberal class and its purported values? Let’s not forget the title of Huffington’s latest book: “Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream.”
Liberals like these deserve the rage they engender.
That's from Chris Hedges' "Huffington's Plunder" (ICH). I asked C.I. if Hedges had a new column this week and she hadn't heard. But we were speaking today and a friend of C.I.'s mentioned Robert Scheer's "toadying" to Arianna in a column this week noting that he disagreed with Chris. At which point, I had to go looking for Hedges' latest.
