Spin Means To Lie
April 15th, 2013
Capitalists accuse the poor of class warfare! And they show a lot of hypocrisy using those terms. War is created by aggressive people who attack and oppress another group of people. You can’t possibly say that the poor of this world are aggressors and oppressors.
Capitalists think they can spin people into believing that capitalists are being attacked in a class war by all those aggressive poor people who are trying to feed their families and keep a roof over their heads.
Spin means to lie. To use sports football vernacular, there is the offense that attacks and the defense that defends. The people with the ball, the people with the money and power, are the aggressors in class war. Try to spin your way out of that!
The only weapon the poor and disenfranchised have is our numbers. And in a democracy, as we are supposed to be, that should be enough for our “elected officials” to know what the “will of the people” is.
But the generals in the war against the poor are thinking only of their own executive bathrooms, when many in this country don’t even have a safe and clean place to defecate.
