Skip to comments.Huffington's Plunder (Liberal journalist explains why people HATE liberals)
Posted on 03/01/2011 7:08:24 AM PST by PanzerKardinal
Any business owner who uses largely unpaid labor, with a handful of underpaid, nonunion employees, to build a company that is sold for a few hundred million dollars, no matter how he or she is introduced to you on the television screen, is not a liberal or a progressive. Those who take advantage of workers, whatever their outward ideological veneer, to make profits of that magnitude are charter members of the exploitative class. Dust off your Karl Marx. They are the enemies of working men and women. And they are also, in this case, sucking the lifeblood out of a trade I care deeply about. It was bad enough that Huffington used her site for flagrant self-promotion, although the cult of the self has reached such dizzying proportions in American society that such behavior is almost expected. But there is an even sadder irony that this was carried out in the name of journalism.
This latest form of liberal exploitation exposes yet again the liberal class for who they really areopportunists whose operating methods are as callous as those used in running the textile mills in southern China. Is it any wonder that working men and women, who have been abandoned and betrayed by these self-identified liberals, hate the liberal class and its transparent hypocrisy? Is it any wonder that the some 40 million Americans who live in poverty are invisible to the wider culture? Is it any wonder that the tea party and all the lunatics on the fringe of our political spectrum put their cross hairs on the liberal class and its purported values? Lets not forget the title of Huffingtons latest book: Third World America: How Our Politicians Are Abandoning the Middle Class and Betraying the American Dream.
Liberals like these deserve the rage they engender.

When leftist start realizing that their leftist icons are giving them the finger, liberalism is pretty much over.
Any full explanation of why liberals are hated, loathed, spit upon, and f*rted in the general direction of - - -
would require a 1 terrabyte disk to store it.
Liberals are slime, pond scum, smegma, toe cheese, and armpit lint...and that’s just for the start.
And I’m just getting started.
Really . . . they’re just now figuring this out?
Gullible liberals have been “exploited” by their leaders for years, but they don’t seem to catch on in large numbers.
I wonder if Ariana will ‘share the wealth’?
whorington isn’t an “icon”. she’s nobody. It’s great when she goes on TV. The more Americans see that leftism/libism is a foreign, unAmerican thing, the happier I am.
This article is leftist bulldrivel. “They are the enemies of working men and women” - lol.
Marx created a system of control. He was NOT a “friend of working men”. He fully intentionally created a system to wrest control from one group of dictators and give it to a group of more malevolent dictators. He was an evil man who let his children starve. He codified that evil in a book as his gift of hate to mankind.
When he says that people will work harder if they are working for others, I don’t know how anyone can read it and not crack up laughing. It’s like you are reading a book by a con artist titled “My scam, and how to pull it off”.
Just a lesson on the truth of socialism that will be lost on the useful idiots who made Huffington very rich.
What’s wrong with this guy?
What part of “from each according to his ability” doesn’t he understand?
Huffpo took “from each” writer/contributor “according to his ability”.
They should have been proud to be a part of it.
I have said for years that Hollywood and other rich ‘Libs’ hide behind their ‘Lib” title. They use their Libness to prevent attacks while they carry out their evil ways.
Huffy needed it most of all. LOL
Does not compute - liberalism IS evil...
so how can they hide behind being a liberal to do evil?
Big deal. Arianna owned a website and then sold it to make some cash. People on this forum wouldn’t do anything different. By the way, Hedges is the ultimate anti-American, leftist scribbler who’s indignant that he didn’t make off with any swag on the deal. Just one leftist pig calling another one dirty.
Liberalism is like herpes. It never really goes away.
Considering the impostor they elected to the People's House, I find this statement more than a little bit ironic.
Actually aren't they called capitalists? Are these bloggers being forced to write for H? I don't think so. They do it for whatever reason they have quite willingly. They are all libs and they do what libs do: try to teach us why Marxism is such a wonderful thing. They get what they've earned - nothing.
I'm no Arianna Huffington fan but she has no need to apologize to anyone for taking AOL to the cleaners. $315 million? Give me a break. AOL will be lucky to get 10 cents on the dollar when they try to dump it a few years down the road.
Dontcha just love it when a true blue believer in the leftist/progressive cause all of the sudden comes to realize that he was a useful idiot? As crazy as it may sound, this writer may be on the road to truth and true classical liberalism as laid out in modern day conservatism.
I don't know. Conservatives have been getting the middle finger from supposedly conservative "icons" for some time now. I hope conservatism is not over.
Pass the popcorn! This is gonna get rough!
Simple answer to the question: liberal democrats are commies.
She also did the "to each" part pretty well, with regard to herself anyway.
These Huff-Po Progressives allowed themselves to be exploited by a brazen serial opportunist who used their misguided sense of socialist solidarity to rip them off, plunder their work and promote her own glory. Next time, try getting a real job, paying taxes and raising a family instead of playing Boris Bolshevik at age 30 in your parents' basements.
Smegma is one of my favorite insults to use on liberals! They have to look it up to find out they’ve been insulted!
This is especially true for leftists,
because their primary reason for being leftists
is to feel good about themselves,
to feel superior intellectually and morally.
They’ve yet to figure it out about Michael Moore!
You can’t get a bigger fraud than the liberal elite. Maybe this middle east turmoil has awakened something inside the ignorant Leftist masses that is going to be directed to the Liberal elite.
I would like this guy's definition of poverty because I haven't seen it.
Liberals are so stooopid it takes getting slapped in the face with a wet fish for them to realize what the rest of the world long ago did...
As Ronald Reagan used to say....A liberal is one who has read Karl Marx; a conservative is one who UNDERSTANDS Karl Marx.
If by “sharing the wealth” you mean hiring another nice studly young pool boy, maybe.
I’m sure many of the bloggers were still infected with the “American Dream” that their writing would lead to greater visibility and be part of a career move — basically, they paying their dues, on their way to becoming another moneyed “talking head.” In which case they should feel honored to have worked for so an illustrious rag, that provided a vast audience and the potential a great public viewership. So things didn’t work out (no big career)... Oh well, become an arch conservative and extract bloody justice.
I read she was gaming the system by fiddling with their content and googles search algorithms. I wonder what AOL thinks about that? Nothing probably. You are likely correct and down the road Zsa-Zsa's little collection of scabbed web content and "original" content from her slave plantation is going to be worth a happy meal.
Speaking of google, what a scam that company has always been. They steal content and get away with it.
LOL - yeah we, the people, are tired of reporters 'giving voice' to the same old tired liberal victim groups. (hint: it's NOT 1968) We're blamed for not giving those endless, overexposed, unbelievable liberal fantasies any hits? Ummm, this guy needs to get out of his bubble and walk among the people for a week - and not the one's some liberal social worker gave him to interview...
I have a book called “Economics Explained”. It was co-written by two or three economists. It has a section in which the author deeply and thoroughly kisses Marx’s @$$ as one of the greatest, most knowledgeable economists of all time (semi-direct quote “Due to his extensive study of the subject, he had such a deep understanding of economics that it is hard to comprehend”.) I quit reading the book after that sentence, since I knew that at least one of the authors had no real comprehension of economics.
A liberal elite 'share HER wealth'?
Don’t stop with Arianna. Apply this same analysis to all the top ‘Rat movers and shakers. Maybe Valerie “slum lord” Jarrett could be next.
They contracted to write for peanuts, they perceived a value for being in the blog. That she was able to get that kind of money for her blog is probably a combination of shrewd business acumen by her and a moronic decision by AOL.
Huffington couldn’t have made one dime without all the willing idiots who paid to read her Marxist crap. THIS WAY TO THE EGRESS! ONLY 50 CENTS!
Actually I think the author has a point.
If Zsa Zsa were a sincere, committed Liberal/Socialist, she would have gladly Shared the Wealth with everyone appearing on the HuffPo.
