The elites have been going after the wealthy for some time.

because they represent a threat.

Let's put this in a common sense perspective. In matters of power one does not pay attention to things that are not threats.

Let's take Lindsey's verbiage of structure:

Elites
Wealthy in between
Common man on the street

If you are an elite the common man on the street is not a threat. The wealthy in between however are a real threat because they potentially have the means to effect a change in power. Once you realize the reason elite have been at war against wealthy because they represent a threat to elite power it becomes common sense.

Does the wise shepherd waste any energy protecting his flock from deer? No, he pays them no attention because they are not a threat so he can keep a vigilant watch for wolves.
