(Huffington Post)   Clueless rich guy comparing hatred for the rich to the the Holocaust realizes what a fool he had been and apologizes. LOL Who am I kidding? The stupid jackass actually opened up his Foie gras hole again and said that poor people are Nazis   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 334

Crazy rich guy still crazy, rich. How does he reconcile his utilization of his wealth against say Bill Gates' or Warren Buffet's?
 
2014-01-27 04:08:18 PM  
Poor people are Nazis? Really?

I'd bet you a million dollars that this guy says taxes are theft as well.

But I don't have a million dollars. Because I'm a Nazi. I mean...poor person.

His analogy does have one minor flaw.  You can't turn a Jew into a Gentile, but you can always make a rich man poor.

Wait, what? This dude has been convicted of killing other people and he accuses others of violent tendencies?

Name  onedifference between this and the Holocaust. This is more like the Holocaust times a thousand at least. Which means it's like 3/8th of 9/11 or 0.30681818181.

These are the people all day sucker middle class and poor republicans and fark independents support and make sacrifices for. Get some self respect morans.

Should have given him a haircut with the National Razor, it seems.

Is this rich guy the same rich guy who recently claimed his pharmaceutical company doesn't make cancer treatments for the poor, they make anti-cancer drugs for the rich.
 
2014-01-27 05:07:07 PM  
Come on. This guy is obviously a troll. Or drunk.
 
2014-01-27 05:11:26 PM  
You know, Rich Guy, not every country went through a bloody mess of a revolution. Most of Europe managed to deal with the power structure without killing EVERY land owner.

You might get lucky. We might just institute massive procreational tariffs and jail those people who break them. So it won't be a tumbril for you. If you're lukcy.
 
2014-01-27 05:24:18 PM  
Holy crap - and another guy, in defending him, once again used the "envy" thing:
"another wealthy venture capitalist, Tim Draper, has ridden to Perkins' rescue, telling Business Insider that Perkins "is a brilliant man, and he is identifying schadenfreude, something that continues to be a thorn in humanity's side. The bitter taste of envy brings us all down."

Do they seriously think that everyone is envious of them? They may have money and nice things, but at the expense of basic human decency and humanity.

They're also probably sociopaths, which I don't imagine is a happy existence.
 
2014-01-27 05:24:20 PM  
Well there IS a historical model that mirrors the current situation at least a little bit. Probably not the one he wishes it was, though.

It's actually very happy indeed. No guilt.

Said Jean-Paul Sartre. And he should know, since he was from France.

This guy needs to take a shower and have a pretty flower.
 
2014-01-27 05:55:43 PM  
Is he seeing a socioeconomic class that calls for the nationalization of capital and the socialization of benefits derived there from? Correct in one way, but we don't use the word Nazi anymore because there's more baggage involved.

Percentage-wise, someone who inherited his wealth?

That said, you can tell inherited wealth as they don't shut up.  They know the lessons of the French Revolution.  They keep their ill-informed opinions to themselves.

It's terrible when people react to words that you actually produce, and then hold you to them. That's EXACTLY like being held by Fascists...

At some point, we NEED to teach our children Godwin's Law, and at an early age...

He's a rich guy who started a venture capital firm, married Danielle Steele, and killed someone in a yachting accident. Apparently, his gardener has been giving him dirty looks on his way to his third job, and his feelings are hurt, and he wants you to know that hurting his feelings is literally worse than Hitler.

RIch asshole compared the "class warfare" in SF (and quotes are because I'm hearing rumors that it's 50 or 60 professional anarchists/demonstrators backed by other powerful interests, and not most San Franciscans) about the Google buses to the Holocaust.

Everyone went "WTF, man, WTF?"

Then he doubled down.

/Oh, and it doesn't help that he's basically the poster boy for "fantastically rich asshole uses being rich as excuse for literally getting away with murder because he's rich," which plays into pretty much every person's fear about the conflation of multi-generational wealth and power.
