It’s the dumb catch-22 that the right wing loves to deploy to shutdown any left-wing opinion.

If you’re poor and espouse left-wing ideals then you’re just jealous of the success of others and don’t want to work hard and just want to be given free stuff that others paid for.

If you’re not poor and espouse left-wing ideals then you’re a fake, pretentious arsehole who doesn’t understand what it’s really like for the poor and shame on you for daring to talk for them you bastard.

They just so desperately want people to stop talking about left wing ideas like equality and justice and a fair society that they’ll invent nonsense to pretend nobody’s opinion matters if that opinion is even vaguely left-wing in nature.
