We don’t even have to play the “What if a Tea Partier said this?” game. Tea Partiers don’t even have to say anything to get smeared, from the Congressional Black Caucus to Attack of the Show. If you’re in the Tea Party or publicly sympathize with it in any way, you’ll get smeared.
But if you’re a rich has-been who hasn’t been funny in years, but you are known for being a lefty, you can get away with going all French Revolution on bankers. Which brings us to Roseanne Barr.
“Part of my platform is, of course, the guilty must be punished and that we no longer let our children see their guilty leaders getting away with murder. Because it teaches children, you know, that they don’t have to have any morals as long as they have guns and are bullies and I don’t think that’s a good message,” Barr told Russia Today (RT).
“I do say that I am in favor of the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of the worst of the guilty.
“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay, you know, the ability to pay back anything over $100 million [of] personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount of that amount then they should, you know, go to the reeducation camps and if that doesn’t help, then being beheaded,” Barr said with a straight face.
What can you say to this? She’s a loonbat? Sure, obviously. She’s serious, and the host of the show joins in and agrees with her. They’re both aping the Khmer Rouge, the Cultural Revolution, take your pick of far left mass murder sprees. We could call for Lifetime to cancel her reality show, Nuts, but its total lack of audience took care of that.
It is interesting, that when lefties call for revolutionary acts, they don’t generally go in the direction of George Washington. They go in the direction of the Committee of Public Safety and Robespierre. Why is that?
