Economist and Author Walter Williams on Income Inequality: 'The Progressive Agenda is to Create Hate and Envy'Topics: Political News and commentaries
Perfect timing for Barack Obama's class-warfare, confrontational, speech tonight!
In an interesting column today at CNS News entitled "Politics of Hate and Envy," economist and author Walter Williams exposes the hypocrisy, double-standards, disingenuousness, and true motives behind the "income inequality" agenda of the Marxist-Leninist Obama regime ... and progressives in general."
Here's an excerpt to pique your interest:
Though sports and Hollywood personalities earn multiples of CEO salaries, you'll never find leftists and progressives picketing and criticizing them. Why?Read the whole thing here ....
The strategy for want-to-be tyrants is to demonize people whose power they want to usurp. That's the typical way tyrants gain power. They give the masses someone to hate. In 18th-century France, it was Maximilien Robespierre's promoting hatred of the aristocracy that led to his acquiring dictatorial power. In the 20th century, the communists gained power by promoting public hatred of the czars and capitalists. In Germany, Adolf Hitler gained power by promoting hatred of Jews and Bolsheviks.
I'm not equating America's progressives and liberals with Robespierre, Josef Stalin and Hitler. I am saying that promoting jealousy, fear and hate is an effective strategy for leftist politicians and their followers to control and micromanage businesses. It's not about the amount of money top executives earn. If it were, politicians and leftists would be promoting jealousy, fear and hatred toward multi-multimillionaire Hollywood actors, celebrities and sports stars.
