The ‘Patriotic Millionaires’ Are Anything But

Let's destroy the economy so no one else can become rich like us

A group of very deep-pocketed progressive millionaires are seeking to “fundamentally reset” the American ideology and economy and “expose the dogma of free enterprise, limited government, and traditional family values,” according to a brochure obtained by a news source at a secretive progressive dark money donor conference.

The group, called the Patriotic Millionaires, is a Washington-based organization that consists of wealthy liberals with an income of at least $1 million. The organization was initially formed in the year 2010 to “demand an end to Bush’s tax cuts for millionaires” and has launched a recent campaign against the Republican tax cut plans.

The Patriotic Millionaires’ newest organizational overview, which is not the same brochure that is currently available on its website, was obtained from the Democracy Alliance’s fall investment conference held last week at the swanky La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, Calif. Each of the Democracy Alliance member vows to steer hundreds of thousands in funding to approve the left-wing organizations the group supports.

The group is led by Morris Pearl, who is a former managing director at the BlackRock, one of the world’s largest investment firms, and identifies its core values as pushing for the “equal political representation,” a “livable minimum wage,” and a “fair tax system” further rejecting free enterprise, limited government, and traditional family values.

“We hope to facilitate a wholesale rejection of modern conservatism, exposing the dogma of ‘free enterprise, limited government, and traditional family values’ for what it truly is: a thin veil concealing rapacious capitalism, social Darwinism, and a profound misunderstanding of—and disinterest in—the human condition,” the group writes in its brochure.

Topics like race, immigration, reproductive freedom, social equality, mass incarceration, and global climate change are labeled as the group’s most important/pressing issues, suggesting that they can be dealt with if “a political economy capable of meeting the basic needs of our citizens” is fully established. The group also hopes to establish these tenets as the dominant political system in the United States by 2026, when America celebrates its 250th birthday, its brochure further states.

“In a political system that has become more an oligarchy than a democracy, our power lies in being seen as members of the ‘elite’ class arguing against our perceived self-interest,” the brochure reads. “The truth, however, is that values we support will make the country more stable and more prosperous for all its citizens, including rich ones.”

The wealthy progressive activists also say that the country is now facing an “unstable president, a volatile political climate, and an almost wholesale capture of government” by moneyed interests, and wants to capitalize by leveraging their position to promote a “powerful new governing framework” in public debates and “fundamentally reset” America’s ideology and economy.

“The 2016 election sparked a profound awakening, creating a once-in-a-generation opportunity to fundamentally reset America’s ideological course and its political economy,” they wrote. “Voters are rejecting the wholesale capture of government that began 50 years ago, and they are demanding their elected officials focus on the fundamental issues of power and money that have always been at the heart of the Patriotic Millionaire’s work.”
