The NEA’s showdown with Wisconsin’s state governor, Scott Walker, has brought out the usual leftist suspects from the woodwork and sewers, like Michael Moore, (to name one) who smile with glee at the opportunity to spread their class warfare claptrap to the public.
The following article by Sultan Knish is a well written piece detailing exactly what is going on, and who seeks to gain most which ever side gets the upper hand. The Marxists keep pointing to the upper crust 1% of society that supposedly controls the overwhelming percentage of the nation’s wealth, Sultan Knish begs to differ, and the Tundra Tabloids firmly agrees with him.

The Threat of Government Power
Sultan Knish: […] “This is not the mere concentration of wealth, but the ruthless concentration of power. The real money isn’t coming from that top 1 percent, it’s coming from unions, lobbies and companies which use political power to extract public money. And that money goes to the party which is so determined to keep on extracting that money no matter what it takes.
The Tea Party movement brought millions of Americans out into the street, not because they were members of a fraternal organization, a political party or a formal movement. But the advocates of big government have failed to bring out the boots, except as in Wisconsin, when the power and privilege of one of their political trusts is challenged. That is the difference between a reform movement and a counter-reform movement.
The big government left keeps playing the class warfare card, but for all their murmuring, it is not the top 1 percent that robs the middle-class blind and then sends them the bill. Even the worst company in the world isn’t as larcenously extortionate as the politicians who spend and kick back, and then raise cry poverty and raise taxes. They shout that we need to raise taxes on the rich, and supposing that we do, where will that money go? Even if we strip that 1 percent of all their wealth and dress them up in barrels, is there anyone who does not believe that those in power will still contrive to spend it all and run up huge deficits anyway.
NOTE: Michael Moore spews his Marxist class warfare nonsense:
