RUSH: Zbigniew Brzezinski was on his daughter’s TV show today. His daughter is Mika Brzezinski, and she co-hosts Morning Joe with Joe Scarborough. Now, Zbigniew Brzezinski is the former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter. He’s a frequent guest on his daughter’s program on MSNBC and he said some really odd things today. He wants to publish the names of people who make a lot of money, says that would be very helpful in redistributing wealth. I expect Romney and Cantor to endorse this within five days. I wouldn’t be surprised if one of them defecates on a cop car just to show solidarity with the protesters. But back to Brzezinski. Zbigniew Brzezinski wants anybody making a lot of money to be pointed out, and after saying that, then he said he didn’t want Wall Street demonized. This is from TheBlaze.com. Then he went to demonizing people who legally earn a lot of money and spend it in ways that apparently he would not.
He said, “We have to have disclosure of the rich and who they are. We have to have transparency. We have to have control.” Now who is he anyway to be talking about — I mean Zbigniew Brzezinski was the national security advisor, he’s an historian. He knows why the Serbs don’t like whoever they don’t like, and he knows why the Turks don’t like whoever they don’t like, he knows that stuff. Yeah. (interruption) Well, he hasn’t gone that far, but, yeah, we’ll tattoo the rich, give ’em armbands that they have to wear so everybody knows who they are, and if they refuse to play ball, if they refuse to start spending their money and hiring people and giving money away, then we’ll identify ’em even further.
“We need more fair distribution of social responsibility through taxation and elimination of loopholes and pressure even on the rich to avoid flaunting their wealth.” This from Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was the first guy every morning that Jimmy Carter met with, after he spoke to David Rockefeller. Brzezinski spoke to Rockefeller, then walked in and had his conference every morning with Carter. I’m just making that up. I’m trying to stir it up out there amongst the conspiracy, tinfoil hat crowd. “A list of the rich to pressure them to give back.” How about tattooing a dollar sign on their foreheads or some other place where it can’t be hidden? Where would you tattoo a dollar sign on the rich, Snerdley, that they couldn’t cover it up? On their hand? You can wear a glove. Well, yeah, you can wear a hat, but the hat has to come off at some point, especially if you go to a church, you go to a building.
He went on to say, “Unfortunately there is an even larger number of people who massively enriched themselves over the last decade, incredibly so, to the degree that we now have this highly disproportionate social division between the rich and the poor, and I think they should be made known publicly. Public pressure, public condemnation, public shame can be very effective.” By the way, there’s news out today that Wells Fargo posted a profit, Citibank posted a profit. Now, in the old days that would have been good news. That meant that these places were financially healthy and that you could trust your money being there and maybe even go get a job there. Now they post a profit and they are suspects. Now they post a profit, and all of a sudden we gotta be suspicious, that’s bad news out there. Something’s wrong, they made a profit. (interruption) Well, that’s an interesting question. That’s the kind of question one of my used-to-be favorite comedians Irwin Corey would answer. What was it like when there were no rich people?
What was it like when everybody was the same? And of course that day never was. There never has been a day where there was total sameness. There’s always been income inequality, and sometimes it’s not from income. Some people steal theirs. But there’s always been disparity in how much money people have. There’s never been the day where everybody had the same amount of money. But I mean if you’re a business and you’re gonna announce a profit, you may as well do it Friday night at eight o’clock when nobody’s gonna hear about it. You could make the rich wear yellow stars. You could tattoo the dollar sign on both of their faces. Anyway, that’s Zbigniew Brzezinski. Now, the conventional pronunciation is Brzezinski, but I happen to know that the correct Polish pronunciation is Brzezinski, and I like to be correct.
“Jon Huntsman’s presidential campaign is verging on broke after burning through more than $4 million since the former Utah governor entered the race for the Republican nomination in June. The Huntsman campaign, which re-trenched last month by laying off staff and moving its national quarters to the must-win primary state of New Hampshire, finished the third fundraising quarter in September with just $327,000 in the bank and $890,000 in debt.
“Since joining the race on June 21, Huntsman raised $2.26 million and contributed $2.25 million of his own money to the campaign for a total $4.51 million. But a campaign official told CNN Friday that they have spent $4.18 million, leaving Huntsman with a paltry war chest as the GOP nomination fights heats up.” Isn’t Huntsman one of the guys threatening to boycott the Nevada debate because they’re going to move up their primary?
By the way, Mika Brzezinski, the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski, she works at MSNBC, she makes a lot of money. Should we tattoo her? Would he put a star, dollar sign or whatever on her to signify his daughter as one of these rich people, and himself? You know Z-Big is not actually hurting out there. Not many of these people are.
