Shorter Billionare's Take on Politics: "We Can't Ever Vote on Anything Because Hitler."

Ken Langone, who made his fortune selling hardware to people who then hire illegal immigrants to do the work, apparently thinks that voting on anything he doesn't likes for people to consider (such as income inequality) is Nazism, because Hitler sort of won an election. When called to account for his equating of Hitler to democracy, he said, in essence, "Hey, I was making an analogy. And if I say 'Hitler' and you think 'death camps', that's on you."

Ah, how lovely. The example of a brutal dictator who murdered millions of people is used by a capitalist thug to explain why democracy is evil.

Still, other than reasonably open elections, this country stopped being a democracy awhile back. The Supreme Court has almost finished its work of kicking the door wide open for an oligarchical state.
