Protesters set up guillotine in front of Jeff Bezos’ DC home

Protesters set up guillotine in front of Jeff Bezos’ DC home

Underneath the device, known mainly for beheading during the French Revolution, protesters placed a sign that read ’Support our poor communities. Not our wealthy men.’ A digital flyer circulated online and advertised the Sunday event facing the mansion, titled ’Abolish the present. Reconstruct our future.’ It also claimed Amazon mistreats its employees & works with the police to ’surveil us’.

It should be interesting to see how Bezos deals with the optics on this one. He and his company have been avoiding fair tax jurisdiction in Europe for many years. There were fines levied last year but frankly, seeing the end of this corporation would be a good thing and likely create a more competitive and diverse market based on opportunity led by customer choice rather than one determined by the dominant player slowly monopolising the route to the customer.

I do wonder how long Bezos (and a bunch of other billionares) will continue to keep thinking covering for the far left is a smart move. There has to come a point when they start to realise twitter outrage now might be preferable to being headless in a few years. Pretty sure few of them are actually committed enough to far left causes that they would be willing to choose to die to help the cause and there have to be enough examples of those who have bent the knee being turned on that it’s getting harder and harder for them to see that as a road to safety.

It's an unpopular opinion, but there's a strong argument to be made that Amazon hasn't improved the quality of life for many people at all (and not all that much for those it has). I'd be interested to see how the workers would feel if a mock vote were held just to gauge sentiment.

The last thing MOST people want is a bunch of formerly left-wing billionaires openly pushing right-wing policies and legislation. If you think it's bad now, just keep this shit up until their various cost-benefit analyses indicate that it's not even worth pretending anymore. Leftists literally courted these monsters and now they're dropping GUILLOTINES on their front lawns? If only you knew how bad things really are.
