A video has surfaced from 2011 showing James Hodgkinson, the Congressional Shooter, giving an interview while at the St. Loud Occupy Wall Street event, going into a rant about how the 1% were “pushing around” the 99% because they don’t give “a d*mn*.
Hodgkinson stated, (The) “99% are getting pushed around, and the 1% are just not givin’ a damn. So we gotta speak up for the whole country.”
“I just want to let everyone know that income inequality was a factor in the causes of the Great Depression as well as the greed of Secretary of Treasury Andrew Mellon under the Republican Presidents Harding, Coolidge and Hoover … This is what the Republican Party wants to do today.”
“I don’t want a president who won’t even keep his money in American banks. I don’t want a president who will lower taxes on the rich and raise them on the other 99 percent.”
“If the rich paid their fair share of taxes today, we wouldn’t be in this predicament. We need to vote all Republicans out of Congress.”
“I would wish all people under an annual income of $1 million to get behind the 99 percent, and back the push for tax reform. My motto is: “Tax em like 1938.” God bless the 99 percent.”
