Even as former DNC Chair Donna Brazile reveals deep-seated corruption within the Democrat Party, a liberal billionaire donor to the Democrat Party is fed up with the party’s strategy of continually using class warfare and class envy rhetoric and issued a major warning to Democrats across the country on Tuesday — if he hears the word “billionaire” one more time, he’s going to cut off their money.
Stephen Cloobeck, chairman and CEO of Diamond Resorts, a Las Vegas timeshare company, told MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle that the Democrat Party’s policy of punishing success is “so effin’ wrong.”
“When Democrats continue to say, ‘Down with the billionaires! We can’t stand the rich!’ a lot of people want to be rich,” Ruhle asked Cloobeck. “So is it the right message that the Democrats are going with?” she asked.
“It’s so effin’ wrong!”
“Whoa!” interrupted a stunned Ruhle.
“I’ve talked to Schumer, I’ve talked to Wyden, I’ve talked to Pelosi and I said, ‘If you use the term billionaires again, I’m done.’”
“Why?” a curious Ruhle inquired.
“Because it’s aspirational,” Cloobeck answered. “I didn’t start with anything. Just penalize everyone that’s done well? We all want to do well. And we should be the party of doing well. We should be a party of business and leadership. And it is very, very disturbing when I hear the ‘billionaire’ or ‘millionaire’ word. And I told them to stop it, knock it off. Because everyone wants to do really well. And this is the world of aspirations,” he said.
“And are you worried that the Democratic Party goes too far to the left?” Ruhle then asked.
“So much so it drives me nuts!” Cloobeck said with passion. “So much so it would make me quit the party. And I’ve made it very clear, I’ll cut your money off. And others will do the same. We’ve had enough,” he expressed.
It would be interesting to know what finally set Stephen Cloobeck off, what made him reach his boiling point. It’s not like the Democrat Party just started the Marxist claptrap suddenly — they’ve been using it as a political hammer for several decades in order to sleazily appeal to the “masses.”
It’s also going to be interesting to see if the Democrat Party will — or can — change their ways. All they have is the race card and class warfare. Without those tools in their toolkit, there’s not much else left.
A new CNN poll on Tuesday revealed that the Democrat Party is at it’s lowest point of favorability in a quarter of a century, so perhaps there are others out there that share Stephen Cloobeck’s perspective.
