Revolution that eats its children nibbles at Hollywood’s Daryl Hannah, Alec Baldwin, Roseanne Barr.
(Page 4 of 6)
“We’re here to build a movement for economic justice.”
“I don’t really have a lot of…any… sympathy for people with, you know, obscene amounts of money, you know…anything over $200,000 is like…you’re…that’s…no one spends that amount of money on anything. That’s ridiculous.”
“The people who have all the money certainly didn’t work for it.”
“The rich, the elite…are exploiting the people.”
“I don’t think the rich people realize whose going to go first.”
“My landlord is rich…I say eat her.”
“Kill ‘em. Just kidding.”
And while she’s not on this tape, here is the recent quote from Roseanne Barr that was in the news:
“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay… back anything over 100 million in personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of 100 million dollars and if they’re unable to live on that amount then they should go to the reeducation camps, and if that doesn’t help, then be beheaded.”
And then there are these statements not from Occupy Wall Street in 2011 (here is a link to their official manifesto) but an earlier time:
“Every habitation of the rich shall be demolished.” — An October 1793 Robespierre directive issued by the “Committee for Public Safety” in Lyons, France.
“We will make France a graveyard” — French Revolutionary Jean-Baptiste Carrier in July 1793 of his campaign to kill the wealthy of France. He had fifteen hundred men , women and children loaded onto vessels of all types — then scuttled them in the Loire River. Within four months he had disposed of four thousand “undesirables.”
Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz — Nazi slogan from the 1930s meaning “the commonweal ranks above private profit.” Note the eerie similarity in this slogan to these words from the official Occupy Wall Street press release linked above that attacks those who “place profit over people.”
“We reject the old systems of morality and ‘humanity’ invented by the bourgeoisie to oppress and exploit the ‘lower classes’. Our morality has no precedent, and our humanity is absolute because it rests on a new ideal….Blood? Let blood flow like water! Let blood stain forever the black pirate’s flag flown by the bourgeoisie…For only through the death of the old world can we liberate ourselves forever from the return of those jackals!” — A 1918 editorial from Kiev’s The Red Sword, the newspaper of the new Soviet political police, the Cheka.
“We are exterminating the bourgeoisie as a class. In your investigations don’t look for documents and pieces of evidence about what the defendant has done, whether in deed or in speaking or acting against Soviet authority. The first question you should ask him is what class he comes from, what are his roots, his education, his training, and his occupation.” — Martin Latsis, deputy chief of the Cheka, in a November 1918 order to his officers that was part of a first campaign of Soviet genocide by the new Communist government of Vladimir Lenin.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
