Politicians who demonize wealthy Americans are, themselves, greedy and merely preying upon the emotions of poor people, conservative commentator and Blexit leader Candace Owens said Thursday in a Twitter post.

Owens called out Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) by name, saying they think poor people are too stupid to see through liberal politicians’ dishonest emotional manipulations:

"Politicians that demonize wealthy people simply want the wealth for themselves. They harvest the emotions of poor people (who they view as stupid and emotional) to propel themselves into power.

"@SenSanders and @AOC literally think poor people are stupid."

On Wednesday, Sen. Sanders took to Twitter to claim that rich Americans are threatening to seize “all of the wealth” in the country:

“If the richest Americans do not start paying their fair share of taxes, we are headed for a future where they control all of the wealth and the rest of the country has none. All of it. To me, that is outrageous and that is not what America is about.”

Candace Owens' Blexit movement seeks to introduce urban society to conservative values.
