One of Gov. Cuomos top Republican supporters ignited an uproar Tuesday by comparing populist appeals targeting income inequality to arguments made by Nazis in pre-war Germany.
Kenneth Langone, the billionaire co-founder of The Home Depot and a chairman of Republicans for Cuomo, made the remark when asked by Politico how the rich view the political arguments made by Mayor de Blasio and other liberals.

And then he backtracks on his Nazi remark....does anyone know if this is the same Home Depot guy who ran ANTI-OBAMA commercials during the 2012 campaign???
Nah, that was probably Bernie Marcus of the three HD founders, he’s the most conservative and the most outspoken and seems to understand small business the best.
They also backtracked about supporting the faggots, so why am I not surprised..
Astroturfers pretending to be republicans
Does Home Depot still sponsor Sodomy Pride parades that use children as grand Marshall’s? Gov Romney liked those
The kind of Republican who would choose the pro sodomite side in the culture war.
Yup, still do. I only go to HD when really, really needed. I mean, I have to fend off an army of illegals at the entrance just to get inside every damn time..
Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf that the overriding principle of the Nazi Party was “common interest before self interest”.
Income redistribution tops that list. The 1920 NSDAP program known as the “25 Points” called for confiscation of war profits, the use of eminent domain to seize property without compensation, and of course for nationalization of large corporations.
Right out of the left-liberal playbook.
There is an HD and Lowe’s near here and I think Harbor Freight Tools will be opening a store soon too
I see very little difference twixt “progressive” and nazi ideology.
HomoDepot...you can’t have it both ways.
You’re either Conservative, or you’re not.
supports a democrat. Sponsors homosexual perversion. This person is NOT a republican.
He’s a democrat in drag
The is exactly the kind of crap that hurts Republicans. The rich are not being persecuted in America today, in fact, they have never had it so good.
Billionaires like this guy are paying tiny proportions of their income in taxes, much lower than middle class folks. Most super rich today are liberals. The pseudo-conservative ones are the main force in the GOP pushing for amnesty, open borders, gay marriage, deficit spending and crony capitalism. They only pretend to be conservatives to preserve their tax loopholes and ensure their supply of cheap labor.
The GOP will not win the White House again without making a very public break with moneyed interests.
Rich people loves their socialism....not that they’ll be subject to it, but it keeps out their competition.
Republicans for Cuomo? Really? Shouldn’t it be Semimoderate RINKs for a Marxist?
oops RINOs not RINKs...
“The kind of Republican who would choose the pro sodomite side in the culture war.”
Cadre. The ones who realize our ‘two party system’ has less real division than pro wrestling.
