Big Tech has duly been under the microscope.
Online censorship has become one of the biggest problems facing the country.
But MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough picked the wrong fight with Big Tech CEOs and made a complete fool of himself.
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough has completely gone off the reservation.
The former Republican congressman switched his party affiliation to Independent in 2017 because of Trump Derangement Syndrome, but he was outwardly friendly with Donald Trump during the primaries in 2016.
Scarborough even joked about being Trump’s running mate, but all of that changed after the Democrats realized Trump was their true threat, not Jeb Bush.
Ever since then, Scarborough and the Democrat Media Complex have changed on a dime.
These days, Scarborough is indistinguishable from a hardcore leftist.
The MSNBC host attacks Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk for the crime of being rich.
Scarborough denounced them as “robber barons” and said:
“And we have seen the greatest transfer of wealth, which Republicans love to say, ‘Oh, we don’t like to redistribute income.’ Oh, really? Well, the tax policies that I have supported through the ’80s and ’90s and continued to be supported by Republicans in the 21st century have created the greatest income redistribution in the history of this planet from middle-class Americans to the Elon Musks of the world…It’s grotesque.”
Scarborough has it all wrong.
It’s not tax policy. It’s the Federal Reserve monetary policy and the Washington, D.C. establishments spending addiction.
Add in COVID lockdowns that he and the Democrats have supported every step of the way and you get the greatest transfer of wealth in history.
Tens of thousands of small businesses across the country were forced to shut down while giant corporations were arbitrarily allowed to stay open thanks to the big hand of government.
The tax cuts of the ‘80s and ‘90s led to increased prosperity for all Americans.
Trump’s tax cuts spurred economic growth that left-wing economists like Paul Krugman said were impossible.
Companies that had left the country repatriated and brought jobs back to America.
Apple and Amazon both announced they would be opening new facilities in the country.
If Scarborough is looking for a scapegoat, he should blame excessive government spending, which leads to inflation.
Inflation is a regressive hidden tax that hits the middle class and the poor the hardest.
Meanwhile, people like Scarborough in the asset class get richer.
Scarborough has been at MSNBC too long because he seems to have lost his understanding of economics, if he ever had it.
