I really can not believe that we have gotten to the point where public ‘servants’ are openly bragging… errr, threatening to overthrow the government (or just a specific corporation, I’m not quite sure) and install their own new system (which has historically proven to be a living hell … this is surreal.
This is not just some verified liberal on Twitter, this is an elected politician … she is in for a rude awakening, methinks.
OPINION| What, would be worse? Going to hell or going to Seattle? Considering that Seattle is ruled by socialists like Kshama Sawant, I think Satan is not all that bad. She is now claiming that she and her kind will overthrow the United States and turn this country into a socialistic fourth world country.
Sawant is a Councilwoman who just helped pass the “Amazon Tax.” That tax amounts to an income tax that will be paid by Amazon and not the employee.
The tax for the top three employees alone will top two million dollars a year. Amazon is expected to start renting space outside of Seattle.
Sawant is threatening Jeff Bezos with a revolution from the citizens if he tries to avoid the tax.
We are coming to dismantle this deeply oppressive, racist, sexist, violent, utterly bankrupt system of capitalism, this police state.
We cannot and will not stop until we overthrow it and replace it with a world based instead on solidarity, genuine democracy, and equality – a socialist world.
I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class.
If you attempt again to overturn the Amazon Tax, working people will go all out in the thousands to defeat you.
And we will not stop there.
Because you see, we are fighting for far more than this tax, we are preparing the ground for a different kind of society.
And if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it.
Because we are coming for you and your rotten system.
