Obama is ratcheting up his class warfare to levels that would make Marxists blush.
David Limbaugh
There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own.
Elizabeth Warren
Our platform calls for a balanced deficit reduction plan where the wealthy pay their fair share. And when your country is in a costly war, with our soldiers sacrificing abroad and our nation facing a debt crisis at home, being asked to pay your fair share isn’t class warfare – it’s patriotism.

Elizabeth Warren
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
William J. H. Boetcker
Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.
Frederick Douglass
Class warfare or soaking the so-called rich may make for good populist demagoguery and serve the political ends of the governing masterminds, but it does nothing to solve the grave realities of the federal government’s insatiable appetite for spending and its inability to reform itself.
Mark Levin
The war is underway. It’s class warfare. It’s Off With Their Heads 2.0. It’s going to be a battle between the haves and the have-nots. Only a very few have everything, and way too many have much too little.
Gerald Celente

Dee Dee Myers
We have to get away from the class warfare and recognize that we are growing jobs by helping small business.

The problem: Democrats have to drop their stupid class-warfare rhetoric. With 74 million Americans owning stock in one form or another, anything which helps them can’t be derided as a sop to the rich.
Dick Morris
More important than anything else is for Americans to wise up to class warfare demagoguery and reject the politics of envy.
Walter E. Williams
Communism teaches and seeks two objectives: unrelenting class warfare and the complete eradication of private ownership.
Pope Pius XI
Without the presence of class warfare, trade unions would be hard put to justfy their existence.
Karl Marx
The way to connect with voters on the plan is to simply give the facts. Fifty per cent of taxpayers pay 97 per cent of the taxes. By most people’s standards, that’s already fair. The President is playing the class warfare card because he knows that a lot of people may never hear that particular fact. But it’s a fact.
Herman Cain
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
Abraham Lincoln
My deal is have a flat, simple tax. And – Americans want – Americans I hope – aspire to be – be wealthy. I hope they aspire to have a better quality of life. And we have this class warfare that’s going on now. And I don’t agree with that. I’m interested in people getting to work.
Rick Perry
Unless the digital divide is narrowed soon, the United States may be headed to the class warfare of a century ago, the last time the economy changed so fundamentally. It won’t be pleasant.
Jonathan Alter
[The word class has] been excised from the acceptable political vocabulary, except in the limited usage of right-wingers when they accuse liberals of inciting ‘class warfare’ – a charge that means it’s okay for rich people to vote their economic interests but it’s not all right to encourage poor people to do so.
Harry Shearer
You cannot further the Brotherhood of Man by encouraging class hatred.
Paul Getty
Are we interested in treating the symptoms of poverty and economic stagnation through income redistribution and class warfare, or do we want to go at the root causes of poverty and economic stagnation by promoting pro-growth policies that promote prosperity?
Paul Ryan
I don’t hold anything against Barack Obama. I just think the system is so corrupt, it doesn’t matter how well-intentioned someone is, as I believe he was and is. At the end of the day, I think it just comes down to money. This is all about class warfare. All of our political problems.
Conor Oberst
Go back to – my first campaign for the United States Senate. I got a bunch of people now talking about inequality. But back then they sure weren’t. Back then, folks were saying I was preaching class warfare. Now it’s suddenly their campaign platform.
Barack Obama
Sexism, like racism, goes with us into the next century. I see class warfare as overshadowing both.
Constance Baker Motley
The interesting thing about class warfare is that it’s only class warfare if it’s up, not down. If you talk about welfare cheats or something, that’s not class warfare because it’s down; you have to talk about rich people before it’s class warfare.
Calvin Trillin
Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, . . . neither persons nor property will be safe.
Frederick Douglass
If we’re not going to tax the rich anymore, we’re going to create class warfare.
Lewis Black
In the Conservative Party we have no truck with outmoded Marxist doctrine about class warfare. For us it is not who you are, who your family is or where you come from that matters, but what you are and what you can do for your country that counts.
Margaret Thatcher
This is not class warfare. It’s math.
Barack Obama
Don’t liberal Democrats ever learn economic principles, or does their class warfare trump all else?

James Carville
It’s class warfare, my class is winning, but they shouldn’t be.
Warren Buffett
