    It would go to mass murder, at least not by government entities. 91 were killed during Kristallnacht. 53 people were killed during the LA riots. How many people might an angry mob kill if this festers?

    I see the expression of disapproval regarding some of the outcomes of capitalism being conflated with "hate speech" directed at the rich. And then some ridiculous hyperbole about how any and all taxes are government force, and the idiotic idea that a market is either free or not free, as if "free market" is some sort of binary.

    That's the best you've got? That's "radical hate speech?" Please. Worse things have been said by the right-wingers in this thread alone.

    Did you read the whole piece by Perkins, or not?

    Before that day, Nazi progressives were stirring up hatred for the Jews like the Occupiers are with the 1%'ers. the similarities are real.
    Are you not, in this very thread, stirring up hatred for the poor just like the Nazis?

    I feel the same way about the policies of the republican party and other right wingers

    The difference is, the right is more likely to pursue a Holocaust than the Occupy movement.

    After all, OWS directs their criticism towards 1% of the population. The right directs its' criticism towards 47%

    Not at all. I am pointing out the hatred of the occupy crowd.

    Was the Jewish population in Germany closer to 47%, or 1%?

    violence to advance their agenda + the occasional guillotine poster + Jump you bastards = expression of disapproval regarding some of the outcomes of capitalism? K

    The OP was about a billionaire complaining that billionaires were being mistreated, was it not?

    Yes...spot on. Cause being rich in America currently is totally just like being a Jew in Germany during WW II. Exactly the same.
