“The Pitchforks Are Coming… For Us Plutocrats,” Seattle-based “One-Percenter” Nick Hanauer writes in an open letter on Politico to his “fellow zillionaires.” He’s evidently feeling more than a little guilty about his wealth, and thinks he can make everything better and keep the mob he fears his fellow Americans have become from devouring him by raising the minimum wage.
That and making sure they’re disarmed. Hanauer, along with Bill Gates, was one of the privileged backers of Michael Bloomberg’s so-called “background check” initiative in Washington State.
I say “so-called”, because no less an authority than the National Institute of Justice has admitted the effectiveness of such a law “depends on the ability to reduce straw purchasing, requiring gun registration,” and, as we’ve seen time and again, that’s a necessary prerequisite for those bent on confiscation.
“I come from generations of progressive, atheist Jews, ” Hanauer tells The Seattle Times. “My family … got chased out of Germany by Hitler,” he reveals in his previously-linked open letter.
FK – Most Jews in this country and the world are secular Marxists, regardless of how wealthy they are.
FK – My posted comments: This isn’t a ‘democracy.’ Take some time off from making money and writing propaganda and read the Constitution and pay special attention to the Bill of Rights. It’s what makes us ‘exceptional.’
They don’t call us ‘human resources’ and ‘human capital’ and ‘consumers’ and ‘constituents’ because they respect us as human beings.
They don’t work to disarm the common people because they care about what we think or what we want.
I’ve been around and paying attention long enough to know this is a scam or cover for some other goal.
And we won’t be carrying pitchforks, which is why he contributed to the recent evil in Washington State.
