Yet another billionaire goes Godwin:
Now that the left-wing, communist, Jewish, homosexual pornographers of New York City have installed strong man Bill de Blasio at the helm, in place of amiable man-of-the-people huggy-bear Michael Bloomberg, rich guys everywhere are in a panic because the peasants are revolting, and not in “those people are gross” kind of way.
Sleepless nights abound, as billionaires await the sound of jack-boots kicking down their doors and dragging them out of their gated communities and into concentration camps, which are like gated communities but without really nice golf courses and private docks.
Our latest entrant in The Godwin-ing Of The Zeitgeist is Home Depot founder and billionaire guy Ken Langone, who sees a bad moon rising instead of an opportunity to increase pitchfork (aisle seven) and tiki-torch (aisle thirteen) sales.
Speaking of this zany populism craze, he said:
“I hope it’s not working. Because if you go back to 1933, with different words, this is what Hitler was saying in Germany. You don’t survive as a society if you encourage and thrive on envy or jealousy.”
In a word: oy.
As I mentioned on Twitter the other day, the day has got to come when one of these guys is dropping the Hitler-bomb and Adolph Hitler his own bad self is going to step out of the wings, Marshall McLuhan-style, and say, “I heard what you were saying. You know nothing of my work.”
I’d even welcome Hitler back for that. Maybe even buy him a beer…
And as I said last week, comparing the mockery and shaming that rich folks are getting from stand-up comics and people peacefully demonstrating in public parks is an insult to the millions of lives destroyed in a systematic assembly-line Hell.
