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.

I think Fox News is like Scientology. I think it occurred to Rupert Murdoch one day that he could convince a lot of people to buy a bunch of BS and make a lot of money (or get a lot of power).

That's basically it tho. It's some rich guy convincing half of the country to vote for the policies that benefit him.
