First of all, why does everyone hate the bourgeoisie?
It's really a matter of jealousy and contempt on the part of the rich, and class-envy on the part of the poor.
The bourgeoisie are the "burghers" of ancient times, and the city dwellers of modern times. What they are not is noble, royal or super-rich; nor are they peasants or farmers who work the land.
Pre-French Revolution, the burghers were held in contempt and increasingly viewed with some alarm by the elites, because they were seen to be forming some sort of quiet revolution of the bourgeoisie against the status quo. They dressed like the elites, acted like the elites, enjoyed many of the creature comforts of the elites, largely ignored the elites and did not necessarily bow and scrape before them, or pay them the respect that they felt was due to their class.
And, pre-French Revolution, in the eyes of the peasants, the burghers were seen as the rich, vastly superior and the upper-class.
But what does bourgeois even mean?
Whether you own a shop or business of some kind, or work in one hoping to start your own some day, or are "climbing the corporate ladder" on some career path, or are saving to do something entirely different, you may count yourself among the bourgeoisie. Restaurants, repair shops, builders, etc., and all their employees are really bourgeois.
It's the so-called middle-class.
The United States created the largest, broadest, wealthiest bourgeois middle class of any nation in world history. In the USA, the poor, which can never be totally eliminated, was reduced to a tiny fraction of the population, as were the super-rich. For much of the nation's history, until the purposeful economic devastation wrought by Marxocrat Party rule began to really wreck it, the vast American bourgeois middle class was actually rich by world standards.
Marxists of all varieties hate that, because Marxists hate the bourgeois.
Why? Because of the bourgeois sense of Liberty.
Marxism, as portrayed by itself, is a lie. Marxism aims at dictatorship. You can't have a dictatorship of people who think they are liberated. And yet, that - Liberty - is whole the original basis for the USA.
The very idea of a bourgeois America was born of the failure of the socialist experiment of the Pilgrims, which we described in detail in the Colonial Communism page. When socialism failed, as it always does, the desperate surviving Pilgrims turned to unleashing two basic human rights: Liberty, and Property, the seeds of natural Capitalism.
The American Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War, and the ratification of the Constitution and Bill Of Rights established the USA as a bourgeois nation, and the first (and only?) nation-of-laws, defined as a nation, and a government, ruled by law - the constitution - and not ruled by men. Here, the government is representative, transient and temporary; only the law - the constitution - is fixed and permanent. The American government does not rule; it governs, in strict accordance with the constitution, which rules and constrains the government equally as it rules and constrains the citizenry. All other nations are mere nations-of-men.
What nearly wrecked the enterprise from the beginning was the issue of slavery versus the abolition of slavery movement.
The original goal was equality of all men, but, the newly developed and super-rich Planter-Class, which would eventually morph into the Democrat Party, wouldn't have it. They needed to keep their slave-trade going to maintain and grow their wealth, and to maintain their radical economic advantage over plantations and industries that did not employ slaves.
It was they who were successful in keeping Thomas Jefferson's abolition of slavery clause out of the Declaration, by one vote.
After the Revolutionary War was won, it was they who kept Equality out of the 5th Amendment of the Bill Of Rights
It was they who then formed the Confederate States of America, and fought for slavery and against equality on the losing side of the Civil War. And finally, after that war was ended, the constitutional right to equality was added into the constitution in the 14th Amendment, against the opposition of the Democrats.
After the Civil War, it was they, the Democrats, who formed the KKK, authored the infamous Black Codes, the Jim Crow Laws, the Segregation Forever movement, terrorism and the brutal opposition to integration and the MLK movement.
Note well that political parties are extra-constitutional entities, which legally should have no part in American government or governing anything in American government. They never should have been allowed to remain in existence after the Civil War. Or, they never should have been allowed to be brought into existence.
Their movement into communism began with the presidency of that racist, communist, son-of-the-confederacy, Woodrow Wilson, but it went totally communist, as a party, in the 1960's riots and insurrections, when it morphed into the Marxocrat Party we see today.
Post-Civil War the Democrat Party was the political wing of the anti-American "segregation forever" movement, and the KKK was the enforcement wing.
After it went communist, following mostly the Cultural Marxist plan of organizing, infiltrating and taking over from the inside, while not entirely giving up on fomenting actual violent revolution, it successfully blamed its political opposition for the racial sins of its own past.
Thanks to increasing Marxocrat Party ownership of academia, education, entertainment and the news media, it succeeded in blaming the Republicrat Party, America writ large and even the whole white race for the historical racist sins of the former Democrat and now Marxocrat Party.
They actually rewrote history, and got away with it. And, with the civil rights acts of the 1960s, it turned nearly all of black America into its own government-dependent class of citizens, and an absolutely dedicated class of voters.
Instead of the nearly extinct KKK, which the old Democrats had sponsored, the new street-warrior enforcement wing of the new Marxocrat Party were groups like the old Weather Underground and the SLA, and the newer BLM and Antifa Sorosian, Alinskyian and Marxocrat organizations.
With few exceptions, most Marxocrat Party elected officials today will hide and deny their communism and pretend to be American patriots, for purely political reasons. Communism, and indeed all forms of Marxism, including Nazi-Fascism, and all forms of Socialism are not merely anti-Constitution and anti-American in political opinion, but anti-Constitution and anti-American to the point of working for their destruction.
The destruction of constitutional America and the elimination of the bourgeoisie is today the sole aim and purpose of the Marxocrat Party, and everything else about it is political showboat acting and trickery.
A few years ago Trevor Loudon published his List of Socialists and Communists in Congress. Note that Socialism and Communism are antithetical to, incompatible with and actual mortal enemies of Constitutional America.
Just as Cultural Marxism has turned almost all of black America against itself, it is today turning much of bourgeois America against itself. Just try to find a popular entertainer, rock band, author, artist, teacher or professor who is not pro-socialist and anti-American.
In fact, try to find a Catholic Bishop who does not teach that what is bad is really good and what is good is really bad, or any other Bishop who will stand up and publicly and strongly oppose any of that reversal of reality.
Today you should see, perhaps with new eyes, the fact that the Marxocrat Party, the FBI, the CIA, the EPA, the IRS, the Fake News Media, Big Tech, Social Media, BLM, Antifa, Academia, Celebrity and more, all combine to make one, big, organic, anti-bourgeois entity.
The real reason the Biden/Harris regime is making deals with Iran is that they are on Iran's side against America and against Israel. The real reason that they are so slow to give Ukraine what it needs to get the Russians out of the Ukraine is that they are on Russia's side against America and against Ukraine. The real reason they are doing little or nothing to thwart China's threats to Taiwan is that they are on China's side against America and against Taiwan. The real reason the do everything they can to cut and weaken America's defense and deplete America's emergency fuel reserves is that they hope for America to lose a war. After America is conquered, they expect to still be in the ruling class of the global new world order they look forward to.
The Marxocrat Party is in on everything that opposes America.
Any time you hear anyone going on about Social-Justice, Environmental-Justice, Animal-Justice, Racial-Justice, Climate-Justice, etc., etc., etc., you are hearing someone who is out to wreck the bourgeois middle class of America.
If you love liberty, if you want to keep your property, you had better realize that it is more important to know who is out to destroy the bourgeoisie than it is to know who the bourgeoisie are.
Thanks to Cultural Marxism, in both cases, it is us.
We are both bourgeois, and the enemies of the bourgeoisie.
If you are a MAGA citizen, who wants to Make America Great Again, then take a good look at yourself, and if any part of you has been made into any kind of anti-bourgeois social justice warrior,
Getting back on the MAGA track means going fully bourgeois, proudly and publicly.
The Constitution made the American bourgeois class, and the American bourgeiois class is what made America great.

Never be lukewarm.
Life itself demands passion.
He who is indifferent to God has already forfeited his soul.
He who is indifferent to politics has already forfeited his liberty.
In America, religion is not mere window dressing and citizenship is not a spectator sport. Do not allow our common destiny as a whole people to just happen without your input.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
Broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matthew 7:13–15
"We belong to the Church militant; and She is militant because on earth the powers of darkness are ever restless to encompass Her destruction. Not only in the far-off centuries of the early Church, but down through the ages and in this our day, the enemies of God and Christian civilization make bold to attack the Creator's supreme dominion and sacrosanct human rights." --Pope Pius XII
"It is not lawful to take the things of others to give to the poor. It is a sin worthy of punishment, not an act deserving a reward, to give away what belongs to others." --St. Francis of Assisi
Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.—Winston Churchill
The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities.—Ayn Rand
