He may be short on stature, but he is long on redistribution of wealth! H/TBluegrass Pundit
And then they see, uh, Republicans are very good at channeling that anger toward what? Government, immigrants, public employees. Well, an angry population and an angry populace could just as easily turn their anger toward the very rich. Again, it is in the interest of the people at the top to actually call for a more equitable distribution of the gains of economic growth and a better tax system: a tax system that is fair.
Note what Reich is indicating here. He is saying that more punitive taxation is the only way to avoid a revolution against the evil, filthy rich. Class warfare was and is, one of the favorite tactics of the Left. Note that Marxists of all stripes use class warfare as well.
They also are very adept at using intimidating tactics aren’t they?
They also use this tactic on politicians who dare to vote against the wishes of the far Left, it is all part of the Socialist practice known as “community organizing”.
Aw, those loveable union thugs, Robert Reich obviously approves! And, as Brutally Honest points out, we are moving closer to some really bad things happening, and of course, THEN, and only then will the media take note, and yep, they will most assuredly find a way to blame Conservatives!
We’re on the verge of mob violence in Wisconsin
And yet the media will ignore it… until someone gets hurt or worse… and then they’ll figure out how to blame Walker and the Republicans… or Sarah Palin… or Rush Limbaugh… anyone but the moonbats in charge and the President of the United States who leads and inspires them:
The Leftist Elite has called for a rising of their followers: The Committed, Fellow Travellers, Useful Idiots, Dupes. Wisconsin is merely the first bursting forth of the this next stage of their Revolution. Up until now, the Left has been content to wage a stealth war against The United States. With the election of Barack Hussein Obama and majorities in both houses of the Congress two years ago, those leading the Revolution felt liberated enough to begin to speak openly of their goals and desires. Now, with the setbacks the Left has recently suffered and fearing more are on the way [that their Revolution is in jeopardy], the Leftist Elites have decided to take their Revolution to the next stage: open confrontation. When you implement this phase, there is always the danger that violence perpetrated by individual members or small groups of your mobs will break out. This has happened, but the Left has been aided in covering up these crimes by those members of the Mainstream Media who are not part of the Elite Class, but are Dupes and Useful Idiots, by sympathetic policemen who are too stupid to realize the threat the Left poses to Law And Order, and by politicians, not part of the Elite, who think this is all part of the game of politics because they are imbeciles.* As the violence escalates – and it will because it’s inevitable in Revolutions – will the Useful Idiots, the Dupes, the stupid, and the imbeciles wake up? I hope for the best, but expect the worst. What I do know is, if the Revolution isn’t crushed soon, there will be blood and a hard rain’s gonna fall. Could this be one explanation?
And Michelle explains that all of these thuggish, violent tactics go back to Alinsky!
The goals of the teachers union machine are not academic excellence, professional development and fairness. As former NEA official John Lloyd explained it: “You cannot possibly understand NEA without understanding Saul Alinsky. If you want to understand NEA, go to the library and get ‘Rules for Radicals.’”
The goals are student indoctrination, social upheaval and perpetual agitation in pursuit of bigger government and spending without restraint. No wonder the signature “solidarity” color of the teachers union protests this month is red.
Red as in, well, I think that is obvious by now isn’t it?
