President Obama’s presidency relies on class warfare. When Occupy Wall Street raged about “Killing the Rich,” he sympathized with them, despite the fact the he is one of the rich. When the unions railed against the rich, he encouraged them.
President Obama is playing a dangerous game and if he doesn’t stop, it won’t end well.
We recently had a young Marine, Jon Hammar, imprisoned illegally in a Mexican jail. He was tortured with the threat of beheading. We live in a world where we are surrounded by people who want to kill in the most terrifying way possible – beheading is one such way.
The horror of this appears to be lost on Karen Lewis, the Chicago Teachers Union President, who recently joked [we hope she was joking] about beheading the rich to the laughter of the crowd at the Illinois Labor History Society’s “Salute to Labor’s Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today.” Her speech really represented them well.
Lewis said that about a 100 years ago, pro-union activists were ready to murder their rich bosses. She then added:
“…Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them. Please understand that. However, we are in a moment where the wealth disparity in this country is very reminiscent of the robber baron ages. The labor leaders of that time, though, were ready to kill. They were. They were just – off with their heads. They were seriously talking about that.”
She might be joking about the beheading but she is not joking about hating the rich.
Roseanne Barr called for the return of the guillotine for those rich who don’t pay up. She, by the way, is a millionaire.
The Occupiers and the unions banded together last year to engage in mass protests and riots. Class warfare was used to stir the masses at the demonstrations. Signs blasted “Kill the Rich” and “Behead the Rich.”
People like to say that only a small fringe element of the occupiers were violent. That is not true. I was there. They were mostly violent.
Check out the kill the rich rave at Occupy Portland:
This is no joke Ms. Lewis.
What a disgrace our country is becoming. Will no one say “enough!”
