Billionaire Fool Doesn’t Know History

Feb 17, 2014

Billionaire venture capitalist Tom Perkins wrote an editorial to the Wall Street Journal: “I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its ‘one percent,’ namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, the ‘rich.’” Yes, he actually had the nerve to write that!

Did anyone else notice that the rich actually run this country? And that they are not being persecuted?

Perkins then proposed that people who don’t earn enough to pay income tax shouldn’t be allowed to vote. And to top it off, he proposed that rich people should get MORE votes. “It should be like a corporation,” he said. “You pay a million dollars in taxes, you get a million votes.”

Who’s attacking who?! But he’s got one idea right. The rich are waging war on us–it’s about time workers wage one back against them!
