The Democrats are getting more and more radical.
One of the faces of the emerging far-left wing of the party is Senator Elizabeth Warren.
And now Warren is going after one NFL owner for an absurd reason.
Donald Trump has an amazing superpower.
He forces people to expose themselves through calculated mockery.
A prime example of this is Elizabeth Warren.
Trump gave her the moniker “Pocahontas” after she claimed Native American heritage, which aided in her pursuit of a lucrative teaching position at Harvard.
Warren’s justification for her claim were her high cheekbones and her contribution of a lobster bisque recipe to a supposed Native American cookbook called Powwow Chow.
Even some people on the left, like late-night comic Trevor Noah, pointed out that Warren’s claim of heritage was “problematic.”
Warren finally gave in to Trump’s needling and ended up trolling herself.
Instead of vindication Warren received condemnation from Native American activist groups, who slammed her for trying to claim heritage through DNA testing.
Warren has no tribal affiliation whatsoever.
The move was a total failure, and irreparably damaged her with the intersectionality crew on the hard left.
But Elizabeth Warren “persisted.”
She launched a broken campaign for president, and she’s trying to appease the hard left with openly socialist economic policies.
Warren proposed the Accountable Capitalism Act, which is a Leninist’s dream.
The act would require corporations to have 40% of the board of directors elected by the employees, and billion-dollar companies would have to acquire a corporate charter from the federal government.
This would be a huge step toward the socialist paradise of worker-controlled co-ops.
Warren isn’t stopping there.
She also wants a millionaire tax on the rich, and her current target is Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder.
Snyder is no stranger to progressive politicians breathing down his neck.
Warren was one of the lawmakers pushing for the name change.
Now Warren just flat-out wants to take his money.
This billionaire NFL owner just paid $100M for a “superyacht” with its own iMax theater. I’m pretty sure he can pay my new #UltraMillionaireTax to help the millions of yacht-less Americans struggling with student loan debt. https://t.co/Gk4ifAkxdT

This type of jealousy and hatred of the rich is now the core principle of the Democratic Party.
They use mantras like “you don’t build that” or “the rich must pay their fair share,” and that’s on the tepid end.
Warren and other candidates are simply going to demagogue against the rich in hopes of seizing power for themselves.
Of course, rabid leftists like Warren and Bernie Sanders are always exempt from their admonition.
Warren is supposedly worth over $15 million, and Sanders owns multiple houses and paid under 14% in federal taxes.
These arrogant leftists believe that they know better than the economy.
They know better how to spend money than do the wealth generators who make it.
The top quarter of earners in America pay roughly 84% of the taxes, but somehow that’s not a “fair share.”
Daniel Snyder earned his fortune through voluntary transactions and created countless jobs in the process.
Even his luxury yacht stimulated the economy through physical labor and the purchase of materials.
The money didn’t just get dropped in the ocean.
But leftists like Warren ignore such economic realities.
