Ted Leonsis, owner of the Washington Wizards and two other Washington State teams, called out President Obama today over the class warfare rhetoric the President has used lately. The blog is here. Firedoglake seems to resent this and has written a piece that is misleading, especially in its title, “Billionaire Owner of Washington Wizards Wants Obama to Stop Calling Him Rich.”
Reading Ted Leonisis’s blog, however, you soon realize that this is not the truth. Read his blog at the above link. Below is my comment on what he wrote:
I’m glad, Ted, that you realized, however belatedly, that the Democrat Party and its leaders are class warfarists – whether that be in a class of society or a class of “race.” This issue with the tax rates is really a distraction from the (many) other faults people have with this president’s policies.
Now you need to find candidates for the House and the Senate who can help undo what the President and his many minions have done to the country. Who will help to steer this country back towards its founding principles.
I’ve noted during my own tries at congressional campaigns just how much the Democratic Party is trying to, in my opinion, make slaves of everyone economically. This is not surprising, however, as they are the party of original slavery, Jim Crow laws, etc. It is up to the independants and the Republicans to stop their actions as we did 150 years ago, though I hope it’s without the need for another Civil War.
When all is said and done, you have to make the effort to try and change things for the better, whether that effort is local, statewide or national. The Democratic leadership is trying to make things worse, just as they did during the Great Depression.
