Revolution that eats its children nibbles at Hollywood’s Daryl Hannah, Alec Baldwin, Roseanne Barr.
(Page 6 of 6)
All one has to do is read the results of the Schoen poll, the New York magazine poll, or listen to those in the video of the Occupy Wall Street crowd in Oakland to discern not only the intellectual connection from the “General Assembly” that runs the OWS to the “Committee for Public Safety” of Monsieur Robespierre and his fellow French revolutionaries. Members of the Committee for Public Safety targeted what they called “the aristocracy of merchants” — proposing to arrest the rich, put them in prison, and blow the prison up with mines.
Not to mention the OWS lineage that comes straight from the anti-capitalist German National Socialist Labor Party — the Nazis. Not to mention the Communists of the 1917 Russian Revolution. Tellingly, it is a fact that the American Nazi Party, the Socialist Party and the Communist Party — all alive and well here in America — are out there right now supporting the OWS crowd along with Hannah, Baldwin and Barr.
(Not to go unnoticed is OWS supporter Susan Sarandon — listed with a net worth of $50 million as seen here — recently referring to Pope Benedict as a “Nazi.” The Pope is German, and like all young Germans was forced to belong to the Hitler Youth as a youngster. But it is Sarandon — no youngster — who is voluntarily keeping company these days with the Nazis who are busily supporting OWS.)
It is certainly safe to wonder if the reason for Daryl Hannah’s reticence with Hannity, Roseanne Barr’s fury at Celebrity Networth and Alec Baldwin’s non-denial denial about the accuracy of his net worth is directly tied to the reptilian section of their brain that has begun to flash a warning light, however dimly.
If Hannah, Baldwin and Barr in fact are siding with people who have
a) aimed their anger at people of
b) marched on the homes of some of these wealthy people,
c) have freely admitted to having no problem with violence directed against people of wealth, and
d) are receiving open support from American Nazis and Communists…
— somewhere the lessons of what happened to the wealthy in the French Revolution or at the hands of the Nazis and Communists have been lost.
Mr. Baldwin surely does not wish to see these people camped out on his lawn in Amagansett in the Hamptons. Ms. Hannah, her income affording her a dwelling in the remoteness of the Rocky Mountains, would not be thrilled to see herself surrounded and harassed at home either. One can only imagine the greeting these people would get when Roseanne realizes they are now on her reportedly 46-acre doorstep in Hawaii looking to personally redistribute her $80 million. (Ms. Barr, according to public records, purchased her Hawaiian property with what was listed as her aptly named “Big Bucks Trust.”)
This said, who quite deliberately is taking the lead in playing with this kind of political fire?
Who is pinning a Scarlet Letter on fellow Americans as like Hannah, Baldwin and Barr as “millionaires and billionaires” — exhuming the language of the French Revolution? Who has disinterred what Mises called the “hysterical hatred of capitalism” that was the philosophical underpinning of the German National Socialist Labor Party? The latter a 20th century nightmare that Mises describes as based on “the purest and most consistent manifestation of the anti-capitalistic and socialistic spirit of our age.”
Just who is leading the charge against people like Daryl Hannah, Alec Baldwin and Roseanne Barr? Who intends to make people like these three actors campaign issues in 2012?
Astonishing as it may be, that is the man in the White House. The leader of the Democrats in the 2012 election.
You might call him President Robespierre.
And as a result, consciously or not, three very rich liberal Hollywood actors are already flinching when it comes to discussions of just how rich is rich.
Rich, isn’t it?
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?
