Victor Davis Hanson is a conservative professor, writer and historian.
In a new column, he outlined a profound change that has taken place in the Democrat party. Where they used to present themselves as the party of the little guy, they are now the party of rich elites.
He even suggests that the ‘woke’ shift in the party was a top-down strategy, coming from the influential wealthy power players among them.

Victor Davis Hanson: The secret that Biden, Obama, Hillary won’t say aloud about today’s Democratic Party
How often during the last year of wokeness have middle- and lower-class Americans listened to multimillionaires of all races and genders lecture them on their various pathologies and oppressions?
University presidents with million-dollar salaries virtue-signal on the cheap their own sort of “unearned white privilege.”
Meghan Markle and the Obamas, from their plush estates, indict Americans for their biases.
Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors Brignac decries the oppressive victimization she and others have suffered — from one of her four recently acquired homes.
Do we need another performance-art sermon on America’s innate unfairness from billionaire entertainers such as Beyoncé, Jay-Z or Oprah Winfrey, or from multimillionaire Delta or Coca-Cola CEOs?
During the 1980s cultural war, the left’s mantra was “race, class and gender.” Occasionally we still hear of that trifecta, but the class part has increasingly disappeared. The neglect of class is ironic given that a number of recent studies conclude class differences are widening as never before.

Victor Davis Hanson really nailed this.
The wealthy elites of the Democrat party want to create all these rules for other people which they know won’t affect them.
