    Cuomo just takes his money, says nothing

    “Well about a month ago, I was interviewed by Politico,” he said, pausing to give someone in his office an order ("Print that up there!"), "and I was telling them how concerned I was by these efforts to divide Americans up by haves and have-nots, and I thought that that was not constructive and certainly not consistent with a unified nation.”

    Langone was referring to an article by Ben White and Maggie Haberman in which he compared progressive talking points on income inequality to Adolph Hitler's talking points in 1930s Germany.

    “I hope it’s not working,” he said at the time. “Because if you go back to 1933, with different words, this is what Hitler was saying in Germany. You don’t survive as a society if you encourage and thrive on envy or jealousy."

    He explained anew.

    “I pointed to the election in Germany in 1933 that brought Hitler to power," he said. "He came to power through a totally democratic process. So I simply said that just because we’re a democracy that doesn’t mean we can’t do bad things!”

    •  So any society not 100% neo-liberal is Nazi. (2+ / 0-)

      All those rich Western European states with single-payer universal health care and a more equal distribution of wealth are all Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Got it.
