Protesters marched on Bloomberg’s mansion in the Hamptons

6

A caravan of 200 protesters, some of them armed with plastic pitchforks, showed up outside the Long Island vacation homes of Michael Bloomberg and other wealthy investors Wednesday, VICE reported.

They were members of the Marxist astroturf organizations and the pitchforks are to pretend they are ‘we the people.’ They aren’t representative of the USA and many are paid by deep-pocketed leftists.

In any case, Bloomberg wasn’t in his mansion.

TAX THE RICH [WHO ARE ALREADY PAYING MOST OF THE TAXES]

“Tax the rich, not the poor!” protesters chanted outside the 22,000-square-foot, $20 million mansion of former NYC mayor and presidential candidate Bloomberg.

Since March 18, the combined wealth of all U.S. billionaires has surged by $584 billion, according to the progressive think tank Institute for Policy Studies. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the richest person in the world, has gained an extra $43.8 billion, according to the group’s analysis. The U.S. stock market is thriving.

They don’t like the inequality and most of us don’t, however, the rich do pay exorbitant taxes. In fact, they pay most of the taxes.

The middle class is in trouble, but it’s not because they aren’t paying taxes.

“This is primarily about the fact that we’re living in a time where the 0.1% are not only in control of our economy but also our way of life,” said Alice Nascimento, the director of policy at New York Communities for Change, one of the groups leading the protest. “We’re in the middle of a crisis, and ever since the pandemic started, the richest people in the world have only gotten richer.”

THEY’RE ASTROTURF, NOT WE THE PEOPLE

Some protesters brought plastic pitchforks because they’re a symbol of “the working-class rising up,” she said.

They’re not wrong about equality, but their Marxist ideology is very wrong for America.

Protesters included members of the Shinnecock Indian Nation, New York Communities for Change [ACORN}, the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, and other leftist groups.

They’re hoping that Gov. Andrew Cuomo pushes higher taxes on New York’s wealthiest residents to pad the state’s budget and avoid cuts to services that could help the poor during a downturned economy, according to Nascimento.

To make their point heard, they also planned to head to the homes of Stephen Ross, a billionaire real estate developer; Stephen Schwarzman, the CEO of the Blackstone Group, a massive real estate investment firm; and Daniel Loeb, the billionaire behind the hedge fund Third Point.

They are paid operatives and they are leftists.

THE RICH PAY PLENTY

Currently, only 53% of Americans pay federal taxes. the top 1% pay 37.3% of the total, and the top half of taxpayers pay 97% of all federal income tax.

The mansions are spectacular but they pay extremely high taxes on these homes and they have their state taxes and sales taxes.

So what if the wealthy have more. They do more to support the country and they don’t use as many of the services. That is just fact.

We should be more concerned about the Democrat policies destroying the middle class, including the massive immigration which takes jobs from Americans.

There were astroturf marches in Manhattan as well and the two bozos, Cuomo and de Blasio don’t seem to mind the lack of social distancing. This is after de Blasio refused to open restaurants as planned.

  1. I thought socialist liberals like Bloomberg were the ones condoning this Marxist uprising?? I guess they’re starting to eat their own. It was bound to happen, they’ve already destroyed the inner city, so it’s time for the suburban elites to get a taste of their hate.

  2. Too many people have bought in the lie promoted by socialist/communists that the economy is finite and if one person gets more, somebody else must get less. It doesn’t work that way in a free economy. When somebody gains wealth that means the economy grows and that is good for everybody. But when the government takes that wealth away the economy shrinks and the government gains power. When government is all powerful as in socialist/communist societies there are always shortages of consumer goods because there is no incentive to produce and the only wealth is in government and those who control it. These societies are stifling to the human spirit. We all know and wish, those useful idiots who want that for the US should not just visit, but live in one of those countries for a year except they won’t be able to handle it.

  3. Some truth but a lot of misleading FAKE in how the taxes of the rich and their alleged lack of support is set down here.
