Skip to comments.Brzezinski: Make Rich Known Publicly To Pressure Them To Give Back
Posted on 10/17/2011 11:51:36 AM PDT by Third Person
Zbiginew Brzezinski, national security adviser under Jimmy Carter, told the "Morning Joe" program he thinks the names of the rich "should be known publicly" so the masses can "pressure some of those people to give some of it back to society." "You know, how many Americans are really fully aware of how many other good people, thats like Warren Buffett and others, who really donate a lot of their earnings to charities, to philanthropy?" Mr. Brzezinski said. "But how many more are there in the hedge funds? In the banks? In a variety of other places who on the basis of speculation literally make millions of dollars that it would take a century or two for the average person ever to make? I would like to see those lists. And they shouldn't be that difficult to produce. And I think public pressure might have also some effect, not only in terms of moving towards more systematic international coordination and regulation. But also to pressure some of those people to give some of it back, back to society."

revoke this idiot’s visa.
Senile old commie. Thanks a lot, Carter.
Hey Brzezinski...U FIRST!!
I’d love to see these commie lovers like Michael Moore and this clown cough up their own cash. They like to spew their idiocy, let’s see how they like spreading their own wealth around
MrB: Make Marxist Known Publicly so that people will know who’s responsible for their loss of freedom.
lemme see... there’s michael moore, barbara streisand, bill clinton, kanye west, susan sarandon, etc...
Strange. Greed Monster criminals like Soros are NEVER on any of these lists.
Serious Work Fare for the greedy poor and or the proud ignorant is a better idea.
I am sure they do not regard THEMSELVES as rich....
No wonder he never returned to Poland, they don’t like Commies in Poland.
Hey Zbig, should we make them wear a yellow star?
Zbig is an anti-Semite and now anti-success.
Yes, let’s put big gold stars on their clothing front and back and load them into cattle cars once you pillage their wealth while you’re at it you smelly old commie!
Nancy Pelosi and hubby.
Brzezinski's father was Tadeusz Brzeziński, a Polish diplomat who was posted to Germany from 1931 to 1935; Zbigniew Brzezinski thus spent some of his earliest years witnessing the rise of the Nazis. From 1936 to 1938, Tadeusz Brzeziński was posted to the Soviet Union during Joseph Stalin's Great Purge.
If they “make the rich known publicly”, they should also specify how much in taxes those “rich people” do actually pay. It would be an eye-opener for many, I am sure, to see how much they pay. Is it fair for one person to pay several hundred thousand dollars a year in federal income tax, regardless of how much he or she earns?
Maybe they should also publish the names of all who get free money (food stamps, rent assistance, medicaid, welfare cash benefits, etc.) and ask for people to “turn in” those who cheat the sytems.
