Says Sawant:

“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 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 demand, then so be it, because we are coming for you and your rotten system. 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.”

According to Professor Richard Salsman:

Another elected official brazenly invites and threatens violence against innocents. Seattle City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant [above] vows to destroy liberal Jeff Bezos, his class, his company, and capitalism. In her view, capitalist lives don’t matter. FYI, her “Amazon tax” is an unconstitutional “bill of attainder” which violates not only Article I, Section 9, Clause 3 of the U.S.C. but the charter’s Equal Protection Clause (14th Amendment) – because it singles out and targets punitively. Such discrimination is the inevitable result of the egalitarian approach, which demands equality of results even though people and firms left free are diverse in their talents, work ethics, productivity, and earnings.
