Nice… Crowd Laughs as Chicago Teachers Union President Talks About Killing the Rich (Video)

What lovely people.
Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis recently gave a speech at the Illinois Labor History Society’s “Salute to Labor’s Historic Heroes from the History Makers of Today.” She didn’t disappoint the crowd. At one point Lewis talked about killing the evil rich people.
EAG News has the transcript:

“…Do not think for a minute that the wealthy are ever going to allow you to legislate their riches away from them. Please understand that. However, we are in a moment where the wealth disparity in this country is very reminiscent of the robber baron ages. The labor leaders of that time, though, were ready to kill. They were. They were just – off with their heads. They were seriously talking about that.”

The crowd loved it.

    Is Ms Lewis aware of the fact, that if all the rich people were killed there would be no way for her to maintain all the blubber that she carrys on her fram There would not be enough poor people to feed her since they would not have any means of earning a living. Personally I have NEVER worked for a poor person. She is just a big fat bully.

    its stunning to hear people like karen lewis and our politicans constantly demonizing and preaching hatred and bigotry of a small group of people because they want their money.

    They do it because they’re receiving encouragement from other members of their team, aka the Democrat Party, who themselves believe, and are inclined to say, the same thing.

    Hey, Karen, I’m sure you’ve advocated “fairness” in all things…

    What, though, if someone follows your lead:

    “Don’t think for a minute that the obese are ever going to allow you to legislate their feeding troughs away from them.”

    Off with their heads, perhaps…or would gutting them be more appropriate?

    Rand is one of my favorite writers.

    ‘Socialism is the doctrine that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that his life and his work do not belong to him, but belong to society, that the only justification of his existence is his service to society, and that society may dispose of him in any way it pleases for the sake of whatever it deems to be its own tribal, collective good.’

    ‘The essential characteristic of socialism is the denial of individual property rights; under socialism, the right to property (which is the right of use and disposal) is vested in “society as a whole,” i.e., in the collective, with production and distribution controlled by the state, i.e., by the government.

    Socialism may be established by force, as in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics—or by vote, as in Nazi (National Socialist) Germany. The degree of socialization may be total, as in Russia—or partial, as in England. Theoretically, the differences are superficial; practically, they are only a matter of time. The basic principle, in all cases, is the same.

    The alleged goals of socialism were: the abolition of poverty, the achievement of general prosperity, progress, peace and human brotherhood. The results have been a terrifying failure—terrifying, that is, if one’s motive is men’s welfare.

    Instead of prosperity, socialism has brought economic paralysis and/or collapse to every country that tried it. The degree of socialization has been the degree of disaster. The consequences have varied accordingly.’

    ‘There is no difference between the principles, policies and practical results of socialism—and those of any historical or prehistorical tyranny. Socialism is merely democratic absolute monarchy—that is, a system of absolutism without a fixed head, open to seizure of power by all corners, by any ruthless climber, opportunist, adventurer, demagogue or thug.

    When you consider socialism, do not fool yourself about its nature. Remember that there is no such dichotomy as “human rights” versus “property rights.” No human rights can exist without property rights. Since material goods are produced by the mind and effort of individual men, and are needed to sustain their lives, if the producer does not own the result of his effort, he does not own his life. To deny property rights means to turn men into property owned by the state. Whoever claims the “right” to “redistribute” the wealth produced by others is claiming the “right” to treat human beings as chattel.’

    Seems we are watching the world of the depraved. She can’t seem to control her evil thoughts, her desire to steal other people’s money or her out of control appetite so she attempts to control people by killing off the ones she doesn’t like and they wonder why we want our guns!

    All this talk about killing the wealthy, and I guess, conservatives too at a time when there are rumblings about taking guns from those same conservatives. Is it any wonder gun owners say they will not register or give up their firearms? I think Mrs Lard Ass better worry about the lead that might be coming her way if the left gets ugly.

    The Ruling on Dispossessing the
    Disbelievers wealth in Dar al-Harb

    [Implications on our present day work: Every Muslim who lives in dār al-ĥarb should avoid paying any of his wealth to the disbelievers whether it be in the form of taxes, duties, or fines. If a Muslim is allowed to deceive the disbelievers to appropriate their wealth then he is also allowed to deceive them to avoid paying them his wealth.

    Even though it is allowed to seize the property of individuals in dār al-ĥarb, we suggest that Muslims avoid targeting citizens of countries where the public opinion is supportive of some of the Muslim causes. We therefore suggest that the following should be targeted:

    Government owned property


    Global corporations

    Wealth belonging to disbelievers with
    known animosity towards Muslims

    In the case of the United States, both the government and private citizens should be targeted. America and Americans are the Imam’s of kufr in this day and age. The American people who vote for war mongering governments are intent on no good. Anyone who inflicts harm on them in any form is doing a favor to the ummah.

    Careful consideration should be given to the risk vs. Benefit (i.e., maslaĥa) of any specific operation. Because of the very negative implications of an operation that is exposed, it is important that the benefits outweigh the risks.]
