    Yet another billionaire Jew who forgot the mantra "never again," preferring instead to disarm the people just as was done to his ancestors. A recurring theme in modern America.

    Interesting you commented on that portion of the article, I typed up something earlier and deleted it before posting. I have been doing extensive reading about the Treblinka extermination camp recently, specifically about how the camp was operated.

    For the life of me, I can't understand how a Jew alive can be for any sort of gun control, especially an American born one. It sure seems to be a recurring theme though. Un bubbleguming believable. Treblinka wasn't all that long ago.

    Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

    This is a product of society. Between Political Correctness and inadequate teaching of history they have lost sight of how terrible they were treated. They might claim to know about it but reality is that they ignore it as it hurts too much otherwise. It's a double edged sword though because by putting the past behind and not paying attention to it we will all be doomed to repeat it.

    I've never been an anti-semetic person, and in fact when I was younger I was a huge consumer of WWI/WWII and European history. What was done to the Jewish people was awful, and I despise people who insist that the whole thing didn't happen.

    Regardless, the trend cannot be overlooked. That trend is for modern politicised Judaism to side with left leaning causes, their history be damned. Jews were slaughtered in the millions by both hard-right and hard-left regimes on two sides of the European front. By all means, their allegiance should be to neither of those philosophies.

    Anyone paying attention in America today will notice a large percentage of Jewish names in political seats, or bankrolling these types of destructive, anti-freedom initiatives. If you don't notice it, you're either not paying attention, or simply refuse to acknowledge it.

    It's sad to watch the Jewish people of modern America and Europe, many who are ancestors of those who fled Europe - some who didn't make it out. They believe so steadfastly in their impossible liberal ideals, they're willing to betray their history by doing so. I feel that their ancestors would spit on them if they saw how their progeny had abused their own freedom, and trampled on the freedom of others around them.

    So if I sound like a Stormfront poster in my original comment, I'm not. I just find it astounding what modern Jews have done to themselves and to the rest of us.

    Am I the only one who notices that the ones who already made it big are the ones who are for higher taxes? Maybe it's because they already have their riches and there is no retroactive tax. Also, since the taxes are based off of earned income, they can live off the returns from their investments - a small figure.

    It's people like this and Al Gore that make it seem easy for the "99%ers" to agree to what they say. Those of us who are still working hard to try to make enough to retire will have a huge tax hurdle to cross over. It's (not) funny how this repeats itself. Same story - different rich guy.

    A number of commenters on the ST story point it out quite well: Hanauer is perfectly free to flex his muscle and give a $15 minimum wage to all of the employees of his family's company. He's free to write additional checks to the state treasurer if he feels he isn't well represented in taxation. Alas, he does neither. Why? He wants someone else to make the move? Why doesn't he put his money where his mouth is and prove that a $15 minimum wage will work? How about proving that the fantastically rich want to "pay their fair share?" Total hypocrite.

    Lemme see. Hmmmmm?

    What does this guy's ethnic heritage have to do with his politics?

    Let's keep this discussion on the straight and narrow.

    Yeah, well the last time I checked, this isn't Germany in 1940, and every time someone in our camp brings up Nazis and Hitler, we as a group look foolish, if not crazy.

    Just keep it up and you'll alienate the voters we need to beat I-594 because they'll all think that gun owners are a bunch of loons.

    Great point Dave. I don't know how many times that I have asked people to avoid conspiracy theories regardless of their personal belief. There are three groups. The group on the other side that we can't change as they don't care about the truth. The ones on our side already. And finally those that are in the middle. That's the group who we can get on our side and that we need. If they think we are crazy they will just go to the other side.

    I recognize your name, are you on Facebook and active in any groups there? Seems I may have met you at some point. (Rick Halle)

    You're wrong and are associating yourself with some very suspect people to have formed the opinion that NAZI Germany and Hitler's atrocities being remembered are considered foolish and crazy.

    A person of jewish ethnicity/heritage promoting gun-control is tantamount to a person of sub-Sahara ethnicity promoting Jim Crow laws. I believe this that is the point being made with the post about the billionaire forgetting the jewish mantra of 'never again'.

    Or did you think the Jews should have voted Hitler out of office?

    Dave, while I agree that it was a tactless move to bring up Mr. Hanauer's ethniticity as a basis, I do have to dissagree about the Nazi Germany argument. Our Republic foundations are what makes this country great. Agreed? Well the more and more that we embrace socialistic/marxist views like "gun control" under the guise of "safety", we errode the very Republic principles that make us a free country.

    ObamaCare, the PATRIOT Act, the NDAA, Gun Control...they all chip away at our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.

    I think the analogy stands. If we don't change our ways we will turn into Nazi America, one law or Executive Order at a time.

    Doesn't his home state of New York have the kind of laws that he likes.
    Someone should point that out to him before telling him to "go home"

    Actually, I'm right. I do this sort of thing for a living.

    His heritage has nothing to do with this.
