    How can you be confident of that? You don't have a crystal ball, do you?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    I, nor did the op say anything about a genocide happening. That was your straw argument to dismiss speaking honestly to the subject.

    He is comparing the treatment of the rich to the treatment of the Jews in Nazi Germany, which is an assertion so asinine that it hardly merits a response. Well, we know exactly what the Nazis did "left unchecked" and how that ended for the Jews.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    How couldn't you? A crystal ball isn't necessary to dismiss such a sentiment.

    Really? Because I've always found that responses like yours are usually when the claim is accurate and inconvenient for what you want to hide. In this case the irrational hatred of success.

    Dismiss at your own peril. "Wealth" is a sliding scale.

    So, are these anarchists, progressive extremists benign in your opinion? And why do you think that?

    Hatred of the Jews in Germany began decades before the Holocaust. The Holocaust was declared "The Final Solution" to the Jewish Problem" after years of anti Jew propaganda..

    Now we see this in America.

    J-Mac is right. No one yet knows how this will play out.

    As a US military veteran I find it laughable that you think our military would join this rag tag group in placing the rich on rail cars and taking them to some concentration camp in Wyoming.

    My god, you live in scary world.
