    Protesters set up guillotine outside the home of Jeff Bezos

    Via Daily Mail:

    A guillotine has been set up by protesters outside the Washington DC home of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos demanding the company he founded be abolished.

    A number of videos have been posted to social media that shows an old fashioned piece of apparatus commonly used for beheading during the French Revolution.

    A sign placed underneath read: 'Support our poor communities. Not our wealthy men.'
    LOL, this is fantastic. You love to see it. They should hit up brohams like Soros, Gates, Buffett, and Zucky Zuck next.

    "In less than a year, 300,000 suspected enemies of the Revolution were arrested; at least 10,000 died in prison, and 17,000 were officially executed, many by guillotine in the Place de la Revolution. In the orgy of bloodshed, Robespierre succeeded in purging many of his political opponents."

    Heh, what makes this special is that Bezos was pandering to BLM by saying he supports them and doesnt care if he loses customers over it...he may wind up losing some customers and not making any friends with BLM

    I'm not for threats or violence, but seeing these wormy billionaires who negatively influence policy squirm a bit would amuse me.

    Its easy to find some joy in billionaires squirming...but know what XL...bill gates dropped out of college and started Microsoft in his parents garage and he and his partner actually wrote the code for MS dos..which eventually over took IBM Dos and from there his company flourished...all the while NO ONE ELSE on the planet was able to duplicate and surpass and improve on his creation to take it all away from him..

    Besos started amazon in 1995 it was a website that only sold books, the original name was cadabra...besos worked it from the ground up and he just did it better than everyone else...many others fell to amazon

    I cant begrudge them their success they started from the ground up...I do begrudge little snowflake punk antifas who were born with trustfunds never had a bad day in their lives and have been brainwashed by half nuts professors....

    Considering he's a slimebag that can't be trusted in anything he says, I agree with you, he'll probably end up pissing off everyone and losing out as a result. Which I am perfectly happy with.

    Thank you for the history lesson. Not sure I see the relevance though.

    It's not a real threat, it's symbolism. The point is eventually people are going to stop being wage slaves of the billionaire class and fight back.
