“Liberals: A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for rich people…”

"Dimocrats: Rich people convincing poor people the other rich people are the reason they’re poor” was posted on Twitter by Joel on May 29, 2014. “Democrats: Rich people telling poor people to vote for the rich by telling the poor that other rich people are the reason they’re poor” was posted on Twitter by Bryan Fix on September 10, 2014. “DEMOCRATS A bunch of rich people convincing poor people to vote for the rich people by telling the poor people that other rich people are the reason they’re poor” (shown on an image) was posted on Facebook by John Conley on October 22, 2014.

The saying (with slight variations, such as replacing “Democrats” with “The Democrat Party,” “The Liberal Party,” “Leftist Politicians,” “Politicians,” “Socialists” or “"Labour") has been printed on many images. It’s not known who said it first.
