MSNBC Expert Calls for a List of the Rich to Pressure Them to ‘Give Back’
The Blaze ^ | Oct. 17, 2011 | Mike Opelka

Posted on 10/17/2011 11:03:49 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, a former National Security Advisor to President Carter and a frequent guest on his daughter Mika’s MSNBC program, made a series of strange statements during his segment on “Morning Joe” earlier today.

Talking with the MSNBC crew about the concentration of wealth in America as motivation for “Occupy Wall Street,” Dr. Brzezinski seems to believe that publishing the names of people who make a lot of money would be helpful in redistributing wealth:

Brzezinski wants anyone making a lot of money to be pointed out, but a short time later he says he does not want Wall Street “demonized.” Then, he returns to his demonizing of people who legally earn a lot of money and spend it in ways that apparently he would not. Pay close attention to his statements about “control.”

“We have to have disclosure.”

“We have to have transparency.”

“We have to have control.”

“More fair distribution of Social Responsibility through taxation and elimination of loopholes.”

“And pressure even on the rich to avoid flaunting their wealth.”

This is really getting scary. We have state run media calling for names of a category of Americans? People really better wake up. Republicans in the House and Senate better step up and stop fearing.

PUBLICLY NAME the rich?! How about bankers, financial advisers, or bond traders? How about people who don't agree with them or don't look like them or...you get the picture.

Soros has a history of fondness for that,too.

Who is greedier?

Taxpaying Producers or Welfare Non-Producers

One just wants to keep what is theirs, the other wants what the producers earn for free.

I’ve got an idea...

instead of listing and targeting “the rich”,

let’s list and target (yes, in all senses of the word),
known Marxists and communists that are trying to enslave us.
