Skip to comments.Brzezinski: Make Rich Known Publicly To Pressure Them To Give Back
Posted on 10/17/2011 11:51:36 AM PDT by Third Person
Zbiginew Brzezinski, national security adviser under Jimmy Carter, told the "Morning Joe" program he thinks the names of the rich "should be known publicly" so the masses can "pressure some of those people to give some of it back to society." "You know, how many Americans are really fully aware of how many other good people, thats like Warren Buffett and others, who really donate a lot of their earnings to charities, to philanthropy?" Mr. Brzezinski said. "But how many more are there in the hedge funds? In the banks? In a variety of other places who on the basis of speculation literally make millions of dollars that it would take a century or two for the average person ever to make? I would like to see those lists. And they shouldn't be that difficult to produce. And I think public pressure might have also some effect, not only in terms of moving towards more systematic international coordination and regulation. But also to pressure some of those people to give some of it back, back to society."

revoke this idiot’s visa.
Senile old commie. Thanks a lot, Carter.
Hey Brzezinski...U FIRST!!
I’d love to see these commie lovers like Michael Moore and this clown cough up their own cash. They like to spew their idiocy, let’s see how they like spreading their own wealth around
MrB: Make Marxist Known Publicly so that people will know who’s responsible for their loss of freedom.
lemme see... there’s michael moore, barbara streisand, bill clinton, kanye west, susan sarandon, etc...
Strange. Greed Monster criminals like Soros are NEVER on any of these lists.
Serious Work Fare for the greedy poor and or the proud ignorant is a better idea.
I am sure they do not regard THEMSELVES as rich....
No wonder he never returned to Poland, they don’t like Commies in Poland.
Hey Zbig, should we make them wear a yellow star?
Zbig is an anti-Semite and now anti-success.
Yes, let’s put big gold stars on their clothing front and back and load them into cattle cars once you pillage their wealth while you’re at it you smelly old commie!
Nancy Pelosi and hubby.
Brzezinski's father was Tadeusz Brzeziński, a Polish diplomat who was posted to Germany from 1931 to 1935; Zbigniew Brzezinski thus spent some of his earliest years witnessing the rise of the Nazis. From 1936 to 1938, Tadeusz Brzeziński was posted to the Soviet Union during Joseph Stalin's Great Purge.
If they “make the rich known publicly”, they should also specify how much in taxes those “rich people” do actually pay. It would be an eye-opener for many, I am sure, to see how much they pay. Is it fair for one person to pay several hundred thousand dollars a year in federal income tax, regardless of how much he or she earns?
Maybe they should also publish the names of all who get free money (food stamps, rent assistance, medicaid, welfare cash benefits, etc.) and ask for people to “turn in” those who cheat the sytems.
Of course they don’t..commies are all about giving away OTHER people’s money, never their own
Make all of the freeloaders come over to my home and ask for a handout, or at least write me a personal thank you note.
Takes no skill to be an advisor to Jimmy Carter. Hell, even an idiot like Bresniski can do it. What a jackass.
Especially since Liberals ... push ... government spending to help the neediest people at home and abroad. Yet, when it comes to individual contributions to charitable causes, liberals are cheapskates.
Sure it is.
If someone earns $100M in a year, and pays $1M income tax, that's a rate of 1%. Doesn't sound unfair to me.
Commie pukes taking their masks off, even long suspected ones. They think they have won the compelete destruction of America.
First off Mr. Brzezinski, just what exactly is YOUR PERSONAL WORTH?
Remember when Clinton’s tax returns showed that he had ‘donated USED underwear” & had taken a per item price charitable deduction for those donations????
That still ranks as one of the creepiest things the Clinton’s have ever done.
Any good marketing company already has the names and can provide them for a small fee.
I’m from Boston and I say begin with John Lackey and Carl Crawford!!
Just think of all the little [literal] bastards that you’re supporting and not even getting a fathers’ day card.
Are you living off my tax dollars?
If so give that back.
You owe us for what you did in Office.
Cut that last little deal with Iran so the hostages could get recourse in Title 3 courts. When US had forzen the money already.
I thought the man was a refugee from Communism. This makes him sound like a plant.
The reality is that Communism )(Egalitarian Collectivism Sabotages Human Potential.
The more Government seeks to level the wealth of the people, the more people drop out of productive efforts to better themselves, and both they and society, in general, lose in the process.
If you understand why the free market works, you should understand how truly this man is a crackpot."
Would this giveback start for the rich billionaires who have $200k to their names? Why not just confiscate everyone, and leave it to the local commissars to re-distributed it justly?
Oh wait, I’ve seen that movie before, and it wasn’t a happy one.
LET’S START OUR LIST: (NO PARTICULAR ORDER)
BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA
WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON
WOW!!!!!! Unbelievable info!!! Thanks.
I work at Nike. Phil Knight and co and done a ton for Oregon - and probably not just Oregon. Not to mention the boost to the economy - he has funded the Phil Knight Cancer Institute and I know people who have directly benefited from him bringing the best talent he can find in the world to Oregon.
If Knight had no incentive for success none of this would have happened and if he had some how succeeded in spite of the government and our politicians siezed his money we could expect a couple more years funding of the post office or some other malfunctioning government program.
The protesters want to get paid for doing nothing - regardless of whether or not they’re able. What in history makes them think this will work? Nothing that I know of. This is pure selfishness on their part - just like the old hippies who wanted everyone to share - since they had nothing what they meant was “give me your stuff”.
Had a W2 across my desk recently for someone who earned $323,000. Federal taxes withheld: $89,000.
Good ole CFR, Trilateral, NWO, global elite Brzezinski who wrote: “Marxism represents a further vital and creative stage in the maturing of man’s universal vision. Marxism is simultaneously a victory of the external, active man over the inner, passive man and a victory of reason over belief ...”
Before we bother the folks who provide the jobs in America, let’s have some footage of those crashed and burned rescue helicopters in Iran,
If you confiscated ALL of the wealth from the 2010 Forbes 400 listing the total haul would be around 1.4 TRILLION.
That only puts a dent in the total deficit.
This gives you an idea just how far in the hole we are.
You forgot the following:
Heads of the major unions
“Make Rich Poor Known Publicly To Pressure Them To Give Back Earn Their Own Damn Living”
That’s fine, when jobs are available. And don’t say they are; the leftards have ravaged the economy to the point that some people just can’t get jobs any more.
OK, Ziggy, I promise that should I ever get rich, I'll donate a lot more to Free Republic!
In China during their Communist Revolution, upon taking over, their local apparatchiks needed to identify the “landlords” and “capitalists” to be killed or jailed. But what exactly made someone “rich?”
It was decided that anyone who owned a pig was “rich” - and those people were killed.
