Allen West: I’m Waiting for Obama to Apply “Income Equality” to Jay Z and Beyonce
The Minority Report ^ | 1/26/14

Posted on 01/27/2014 5:01:28 PM PST by SoFloFreeper

Before we get to that,… just what the hell is this Hip-Hop-Nevo-Nazi-Fux-Ilimuniati-New-World-Order Salute???

Anyway, Thank you Allen West:

Alas, this week we’ve found the theme upon which President Obama and the progressive socialist Left will now stake their claim: equality.

...Shall we turn to Lebron James and tell him he doesn’t deserve any more in income or compensation, than the 12th listed person on the Heat roster?

Shall President Obama and his pay czar decide what the base level compensation must be across the NBA?

Will the Obama administration turn to Roger Goodell, Commissioner of the NFL, and instruct him on team salary caps?

Or shall President Obama, known for his baseball pitching prowess, tell the New York Yankees they must rescind the seven year $155 million contract to Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka — after all the comptroller of NYC believes in “shared prosperity for all over individual success.”

I’m waiting for President Obama to say during his State of the Union address that income inequality is so vital and important as issue that he will issue an executive order that caps the compensation for Hollywood actors and actresses. After all, why do they need all that income?

As well, entertainers such as his dear friends Jay Z and Beyonce must see a cut in their income and their concerts must be made more affordable to all Americans.

West also said:

Now, do you REALLY believe that’s what President Obama and the Left mean when they talk about income inequality? Nope. They’re talking about those Americans whom the President referred to when he said, “You didn’t build that.” Because you didn’t, you don’t deserve the fruits of your hard-earned labor, investments, and sacrifices.

The leftist celebrities and sports stars know that Obama will NEVER EVER touch their wealth..the same sports stars who switch teams because they are not getting paid enough(They demand amounts like 80 mil a year to play) are the same ones who kiss Obama’s ass because they know their money won’t be touched..you see, to a rich leftist, they are not considered rich..Oprah, Jay Z, Magic Johnson, I can go on and on, they don’t consider themselves rich, they consider themselves to be middle class..the only “Evil” rich to leftists are rich republicans

Gotta enjoy good ol fashion hypocrisy to like these types, they’re all for sharing the wealth, occupying this or that, taking things from “the man” but start downloading and sharing their music and see how fast they get all litigious ...

West nails it. When was the last time Obama hung out in the ‘hood? Who attended de Blasio’s inauguration? Sure, there were some token folks “struggling,” but all in all, it was a bunch of rich, snobby elitists.

Any idiot agitating about “equal income” who hasn’t already split their difference in income with someone under the “poverty line” has zero moral standing on the subject.

How about himself? Obama didn’t have a dime most of his life, is he going to equalize things by giving it away? After all “he didn’t make that”.

West is a little under educated about this. The majority of the super wealthy are Obama supporters.

"Oprah, Jay Z, Magic Johnson, I can go on and on, they don’t consider themselves rich, they consider themselves to be middle class..the only “Evil” rich to leftists are rich Republicans."

That's pretty close to the truth. Obama and the left talk about capping CEO salaries, but never the salaries of entertainers and athletes. And you can argue that the salaries of athletes are much more of a hit on the average person's wallet than are CEO salaries.

The cost of CEO salaries is typically born by millions of customers, so that the impact on any one customer is absolutely minimal. But athletes' salaries - say basketball players' salaries - are born by a much smaller customer base, which is why the cost of tickets has gone through the roof. (A typical NBA team will draw only 600,000-800,000 fans a year, not counting playoffs.) Moreover, sports teams typically suck on the taxpayers' teat for heavily-subsidized arenas and stadiums.

As for the movie industry, there is probably no other industry that dumps on the little guy the way the movie studios do. For major film releases, all or almost all of the ticket revenues for the first two weeks go to the studios - NONE, or very little, goes to the theatres showing the films. THAT is why the cost of popcorn and drinks is so high - that is almost the only source of theatre revenue for the first couple of weeks. (The longer a movie plays, the higher becomes the theatre's share of ticket sales.) So, again, the enormous salaries paid to major stars is tangibly felt in everyone's wallet, and in the balance sheet of the movie theaters who show the films.

Well, then they should be super compliant in that wealth equality thang.

Let's send them letters asking for a million. Be sure to drop Obama's name and use the term "Income Equality" in your letter.

I'll second that. Needless to say, that would include liberal anchormen, editorial writers, and syndicated columnists.

Yep. I’m waiting for the pin-prick-in-chief to go ‘income equality’ on his own bank account.

Not holding my breath, tho’...
