So there is this very rich dude (a venture capitalist who has contributed zero to society), and he is comparing himself -and his fellow very wealthy travelers- to the Jews in Nazi Germany.
Apparently he blames this all on radical progressives who are all of a sudden convincing the rest of America that it's not cool to rip off other people to stash the bulk of the American pie, while they leave the rest of us with just the crumbs to fight over.
I guess it all started with the Obama dude. All that talk of "hope and change". Of course there hasn't been much change, but now the people are hoping, and folks like our billionaire friend are getting a bit worried.
"... there is a "demonization of the rich" in America....the attacks on the rich reflected a "very dangerous drift in American thinking.....Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendant 'progressive' radicalism unthinkable now?"
Guilty as charged.
Hopefully I can contribute to that "dangerous drift in American thinking". That "drift" was needed a long time ago. I think the American people are starting to realize that the game is rigged, and folks like my billionaire friend are never held accountable for their actions when they grift the rest of us. (See the bankers on Wall Street)
No my rich friend, we are not quite at the "Kristallnacht" stage just yet. No one is attacking your business or breaking into your home.
Not yet. But a few more outbursts like this and one night you just might wake up to the sound of broken glass.
