‘Dirty Jobs’ star Mike Rowe blasted the unhinged message of 2020 progressives as one that was ‘as old as hate.’
The actor claims that their message is based purely on resentment of those who are more successful than them.
As Fox News reports:
“It’s not a new thing. It’s as old as hate. You know, the trick is we just got to figure out who we hate this week,” argued Rowe on Fox Nation’s “Reality Check with David Webb.”
In September, Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., tweeted, “Billionaires should not exist.” Fellow 2020 contender Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was accused by JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon of “vilifying successful people” and Warren has been cheered on the campaign trail for mocking billionaires’ objections to her proposals.
“Who can we blame? That’s the game,” Rowe told Fox Nation host David Webb.
“This country has been successful because … it was business and industry and expansion, whether in agriculture and technology, hard work, you know, people taking risk,” observed Webb, saying that many in the media appear to be stoking Americans’ “envy” of their fellow countrymen.
