Frances Fox Piven is a shining example of the left's disconnect with ordinary Americans. They believe they are right (oopsie) when it is obvious to anyone with minimally firing neurons, they are simply buying their own deluded spin.
She proves the right's point by merely opening her mouth and letting her words fall out...
* I have no data, but.... (meaning, i can't prove it but i'm gonna give it as fact, jack)
* implying that the right has RACIST feelings about an "African American in the White House..." (snorezzzzville, overplayed, and a bald-faced lie, Francie. perhaps you are projecting.)
* ...older, relatively comfortable, all white, backward-looking voters... Wait, she left out anyone of color in the Tea Party who considers themselves conservative. Oh, riiiiiight, there aren't any. Siily me, whatever was I thinking?!
* There was a lot of spending that was redistributional in the stimulus bill... She likey. Don't you? You don't?! Shhhh, keep it to yourself. Libbies no likey when you disagree, even if, hell especially if, it's based on fact. Then it's hate speech, you bigot.
All this from an honorary chair of the Democratic Socialists of America. Yep, she's part of the movement that wants to take what you have to give to some other slacker who has not. Give till it hurts....you!
What is a Democratic Socialist? In part: We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane international social order based both on democratic planning and market mechanisms to achieve equitable distribution of resources,meaningful work, a healthy environment, sustainable growth, gender and racial equality, and non-oppressive relationships.
Follow the above link to read more in-depth from their Where We Stand manifesto that made me reach for the Advil. I swear I had visions of a bird lady and 100 squawking Africa (RACIST!) Grays in the background as I tried to muddle through. So much screeching....
Did I mention the left adores her?
