The Elite




The problem with this country, in a nut shell, is the elites. This problem has nothing to do with money, this is all about attitude. And another thing, the elites, they are not just a menace, they are the last group of people in society you can attack and get away with it. And it works.

Look at Kellie Leitch. She is now the front runner for the leadership of the Conservative Party of Canada, in part, because she has the courage to attack the elites. Not just the elites in the Liberals and the NDP and under her bed, but the elites in her own party. Apparently they are everywhere. It’s a good strategy.

If history has taught us anything, it’s that certain political movements do very well when they can blame all of life’s problem on an identifiable group. And in the old days you could just pick a minority and have at ‘em. You can’t do that any more. If you just start attacking willy-nilly the Jews, the gays, the people in wheelchairs, even people with university degrees, they will stand up, they will fight back.

Nobody identifies as an elite, so no one will fight back. Nobody wants to wear that.  I have been called every name in the book.  I really don’t care. If someone called me elite, I’d be all defensive. I’d be like, “you can’t call me elite I grew up with a goat as a lawn mower. I was taught that good manners means don’t slurp when you’re drinking the juice out of the tin of Vienna sausages.”

So no more. If you hear someone blaming the elites, you just swap out that word for whatever group you’re a member of. That’s all you need to know. Calling someone an elite is nothing but an empty insult from an empty mind.
