I’ve already documented some of the absolutely insane diatribes of Roseanne Barr on her blog. But this one really makes me wish she would shut the hell up:
“I do say that I am in favor of the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of the worst of the guilty.
“I first would allow the guilty bankers to pay, you know, the ability to pay back anything over $100 million [of] personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount of that amount then they should, you know, go to the reeducation camps and if that doesn’t help, then being beheaded,” Barr said with a straight face.
Barbarism in the service of an allegedly progressive cause is no better than barbarism in the service of religious or right-wing political causes.
