Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance Tells Tucker Carlson The Quiet Part Out Loud: He Wants A ‘Healthy Ruling Class’

1
Controversial right-wing Ohio Senate candidate J.D. Vance bashed Democrats as miserable “childless cat ladies” who don’t serve a “healthy ruling class,” he told Tucker Carlson on Fox News.

The Republican candidate — a venture capitalist and author of “Hillbilly Elegy” — attacked Democrats who don’t have children because, he claimed, “they don’t have a stake” in the system, he explained to Carlson on Thursday night. Vance, 36, who has been married seven years, has two children.

“If we want a healthy ruling class in this country, we should invest more, we should vote more, we should support more people who actually have kids,” Vance told Carlson.

He singled out Vice President Kamala Harris (who has two stepchildren), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg.

Both Ocasio-Cortez, 31, and Buttigieg, 39, rather famously have dogs, not cats, and Buttigieg isn’t a lady. Buttigieg’s husband, Chasten Buttigieg, on Monday slammed Vance’s earlier comments attacking the “childless left” for being heartless and pointed out that the men are currently seeking to adopt a child.

It’s unknown what Ocasio-Cortez’s family plans are — or if that’s anybody’s business or has any effect on her political commitment. Vance could be right, though, that the Democrats he named have no interest in serving the “ruling class.”

Vance’s comment may have been a slip of the tongue (he didn’t correct himself), but Ocasio-Cortez was convinced the candidate said exactly what he actually meant.

She clapped back in a tweet Friday: “When you accidentally let your billionaire funder-talk slip out on TV, you say things like ‘a healthy ruling class.’”

Lots of others piled on Vance, including those who pointed out how little Vance’s Republican Party does to financially support children in struggling families or to fight for services like health care for families.

We are the ‘Healthy Ruling Class’. We have heard that before as we are the Aryan Master Race. That didn’t work out to well for the Aryan Mater Race.

Maybe we just Exchanged the Titled Ruling Class of nobility for one of Capitalistic Wealth, Plantation Owners, Mill Works, Company towns, Coal Barons, Gilded Age Robber Barrons, Corporate CEOs, Wall Street Bankers, Vulture Capitalist, and Hotel & Golf Resort Real Estate owners that don't pay taxes etc. Even before Trump made the big time we had her.
Leona Mindy Roberts Helmsley (July 4, 1920 – August 20, 2007) was an American businesswoman and convicted felon. Her flamboyant personality and reputation for tyrannical behavior earned her the nickname Queen of Mean.[11] After allegations of non-payment were made by contractors hired to improve Helmsley's Connecticut home, she was investigated and convicted of federal income tax evasion and other crimes in 1989. Although having initially received a sentence of sixteen years, she was required to serve only nineteen months in prison and two months under house arrest. During the trial, a former housekeeper testified that she had heard Helmsley say: "We don't pay taxes; only the little people pay taxes", a quote which was identified with her for the rest of her life.
Trump may have pick up advice from her.

JD Vance is running for US senate in OH, he's running for Rob Portman's seat who is retiring. He's moving to the right for the primary to capture the nomination, then he'll probably move more to the center for the general election depending on the Democratic nominee. He's the author of "Hillbilly Elegy" which made him a bit of money.

The slate of our Ohio senate “hopefuls” make the reptilian, Rob Portman (fully vetted member of the “ruling class”) look down right appealing in comparison.

Vance is an opportunistic, shit-bag who will say anything to get elected, what a gross betrayal of who he supposedly was In 2016. Mandel is a re-tread for senate who has lost several state wide bids, he such a “say anything to get elected” piece of garbage; that the ohio electorate actually voted “D” against him. I hope the Ds keep their powder dry and put someone like Tim Ryan up.

Reports are that Pelosi and others in the House Democratic leadership have been pressuring Democrats in purple districts not to retire or to run for higher office. I agree Tim Ryan would make a good candidate and Connor Lamb in PA.

The pundits with long track records are rating it - lean, likely and solid Republican. It's very early though.
