VIDEO: Mike Rowe Delivers Summary Of Democratic Candidates’ Economic Agenda

Published

on

Mike Rowe, America’s favorite champion of the average, blue collar worker, is on a promotional tour for his new book, “The Way I Heard It,” and stopped by “Fox & Friends,” where he gave a summary of the economic agenda currently being pushed by the Democratic candidates running for president.

Here’s what he had to say, via The Daily Wire:

“When you have a half a million Americans sleeping out on the street today…and then you also have three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of American society, that is a moral and economic outrage,” said Sanders. “So if you are asking me, do I think we should demand that the wealthy start paying — the wealthiest top one-tenth of one percent — start paying their fair share of taxes…Yes, that’s exactly what I believe.”

The hosts then played a clip of frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is also running on an aggressive tax-the-rich plan. “Taxing income is not going to get you where you want to be the way taxing wealth does,” she said. “We need a wealth tax in order to make investments in the next generation.”

Asked about his response to the Democrats’ various economic plans, particularly Sanders’ 97.5% tax on the 400 wealthiest Americans, Rowe said, “Yeah, okay. It’s a free country. Float ‘em. Fly ‘em. Run ‘em up the old flagpole — see who salutes.”

He then offered a memorable summary of his takeaway from Tuesday’s debate. “Look, in the end you’ve got millionaires arguing with millionaires over who hates the millionaires the most,” said Rowe.

Rowe went on to say, “And I guess it’s a conversation we’ll have, but I remember a couple of years ago, I took my meager staff over the Reagan Ranch … One of the stories they tell is the time when Ronald Reagan just finally decided he was done doing movies. He was just done because he was paying 92% of every dollar he made on films. And it was just math. He wasn’t done acting, he just looked at it and did some basic calculus and said, ‘Not for me anymore. It makes no sense to do this.’”

“I live in California. I just read a report that said the exodus this year as a result of a 13.5% state tax and some other tweaks to the system is unlike anything they’ve ever seen before,” Rowe said. “So I know it’s convenient. It’s fun to kind of hate the rich and all, but in the end they’re just people and they’re going to do the math and they’re going to go where the math is better.

Rowe delivered a brilliant response when asked about the plan to give Americans $1000 a month as a means of accounting for lost jobs due to the increase of automation.

“Why not two thousand? Why not three?”

“You can’t ignore the human condition. We’re fundamentally lazy people. We have to be taught, I think, to not be lazy… If you give me a choice — and I don’t see myself as lazy — but if you give me a choice of the easy way or the hard way, I can’t help it, I’m going to default to the easy way.”

“Once you say, okay, free money, the next question has to be: Why not more?” said the former “Dirty Jobs” host.

Seattle Gov’t Held Training Session for Whites to Examine ‘Complicity’ In ‘White Supremacy’

Disturbing.

Race, race, race. That’s all that matters to Democrats. As long as they can continue to divide Americans based on skin color, it seems like they’re having a good day. Check out what’s happening in Seattle, via City Journal: Last month, the City of Seattle’s Office of Civil Rights sent an email inviting “white City employees” to attend a training session on “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness,” a program designed to help white workers examine their “complicity in the system of white supremacy” and “interrupt racism in ways that are accountable to Black, Indigenous and People of Color.” Hoping to learn more, I submitted a public records request for all documentation related to the training. The results are disturbing. At the beginning of the session, the trainers explain that white people have internalized a sense of racial superiority, which has made them unable to access their “humanity” and caused “harm and violence” to people of color. The trainers claim that “individualism,” “perfectionism,” “intellectualization,” and “objectivity” are all vestiges of this internalized racial oppression and must be abandoned in favor of social-justice principles. In conceptual terms, the city frames the discussion around the idea that black Americans are reducible to the essential quality of “blackness” and white Americans are reducible to the essential quality of “whiteness”—that is, the new metaphysics of good and evil.

De Blasio: All Large Gatherings to be Banned In NYC, Except for Black Lives Matter Protests

He’s quite the card…

There should be very little doubt that spiking COVID-19 numbers are due to more testing nationwide, along with Black Lives Matter protests/riots. That’s just the truth, whether some care to admit it or not. On Thursday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he will ban all large gatherings in the city – except for BLM nonsense. WATCH: https://twitter.com/DailyCaller/status/1281354252422651904?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1281354252422651904%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fde-blasio-to-ban-all-large-gatherings-in-nyc-except-black-lives-matter-protests%2F More from Fox News: Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera and civil rights attorney Leo Terrell ripped New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on “Bill Hemmer Reports” Thursday for commissioning local artists to paint the legend “Black Lives Matter” on Fifth Avenue outside Trump Tower. An animated de Blasio slammed Trump during public remarks on the block, and was cheered loudly when he said the artwork will “show Donald Trump what he does not understand.” Rivera noted that even as the mayor snipes at Trump, he is asking the federal government for $7 billion to close a gap in the city budget caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
