Downton Abbey "Poses A Threat To The Left" Because It Portrays Nice Rich People, So Says Fox News

The popularity of Downton Abbey in America is a threat to progressives because it celebrates rich people, according to FOX & Friends:

“Rich people, powerful people, in America today, are reviled,” Varney said. “They’re dismissed as fat cats who don’t pay their fair share.” The general consensus is that “rich people are evil.”

Then comes along Downton Abbey… making rich people seem nice. The characters in the show are kind and generous. “They create jobs, for heaven’s sake. They’re classy, they’ve got style.”

“It poses a threat to the left, doesn’t it?” he asked. Because the left says we must hate rich people.

Comments like this make me wonder: what do you want? Do you want to make the rich poorer like you? Or do you want to become richer like them? Either way, you are losing.

Where I live the president says he's the president of the poor. And he's no lying. 14 years later, people are poorer than ever. We only have super inflation that makes it look like people are more wealthy because they receive liquid money all of the time, but it goes as it comes.

So, the issue for me it's not how much money you have, but what you do with it, and just saying "oh the poor rich people" is over simplistic and quite inconsequential.
