    The Perkins piece was truly bizarre. His first failure was pretending that there is any comparison between Jews as an ethnic group and the economic group aka 1%-ers, that has tilted the laying field of our economic system.

    His second failure was pretending that there is any danger of the Kochs, Soros, Buffet & Gates being rounded up & put in a gas chamber. Americans, by & large, still look up to successful people.

    The message being sent, is: Stop being so greedy! I wish the folks that obsessed over how much of their incomes are being taxed would pay at least a little attention to how little their income has grown in the last 30 years. Meanwhile Perkins & other 1%-ers have managed to keep pretty much all of the gains in or GDP for themselves.

    I expect someone will come to his defense here. There are sentiments worthier of your efforts than Perkins’ silly diatribe.

    It isn’t the 1% that should be worried, it should be the Middle Class. They get eliminated in a Socialist state. The Rich just move somewhere else…
    .
    Look what happened in France when they jacked up income taxes there sky high a few years ago.

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and claim that the pig (presumably dead and cooked), shown in the last panel, is supposed to represent the 99%.

    I’ll believe Perkins when they round up the 1% and put them in FEMA camps for ‘reeducation’.

    I personally love the lines of “Kristalleshnet was unthinkable in the 30’s”. As a matter of fact it was very thinkable. Since the middle ages the Jews have been discriminated against with frequent seizures of wealth. Frequent violence in times of economic instability.

    In the USA conditions were better but discrimination still occured. It was only after the war that the scope of what occurred became clear. But it was by no means a surprise it had occurred

    He left out the part where the Nazis courted the highest percent and got them with only minimal changes to their operations.

    Why is it that members of the top wealthy been so busy since 1980 to eliminate the Middle Class that didn’t exist until 1945?

    For the longest time in Christian Europe Jews were considered the riff-raff and scapgoated constantly. Only the King of Poland protected them when they were being rounded up into buildings and burned to rid the land of the Bubonic Plague. Otherwise it was the more advanced Muslim countries that protected them. Things have changed greatly since then.

    So, logically, if I’m outside, it’s dark & it’s not an eclipse, someone should argue that it is, in fact noon? Your comment betrays your ignorance of what the ’toon is about, not to mention my comments.

    The middle class as we know it (non-rural homeowners, making decent wages & enjoying significant leisure time) didn’t apply to many Americans until the post-war boom years. America was a mostly agrarian society up until the 1920s, & most urbanites were low wage factory workers. I’m sure unions had nothing to do with the changes that turned the working class into the middle class. /sarcasm

    @Uncle Joe

    You should watch some Laurel and Hardy movies from the 1930s. They’re representative of the non-agrarian society that most Americans were living. (Actually, you should check out the one’s from the 1920s, but they’re silent, were made during the “roaring 20’s” and therefore don’t exist.)
