I am Thomas J. Perkins. Millionaire.

I am Thomas J. Perkins. Millionaire. I own a mansion and a yacht.

Again.

Writing from the epicenter of progressive thought, San Francisco, I would call attention to the parallels of fascist Nazi Germany to its war on its “one percent,” namely its Jews, to the progressive war on the American one percent, namely the “rich.”

I am Thomas J. Perkins. The Jews once ran Nazi Germany. I own a mansion and a yacht.

Again.

From the Occupy movement to the demonization of the rich embedded in virtually every word of our local newspaper, the San Francisco Chronicle, I perceive a rising tide of hatred of the successful one percent.

I am Thomas J. Perkins. Param Sharma and Paris Hilton are successful people. I own a mansion and a yacht.

Again.

We have, for example, libelous and cruel attacks in the Chronicle on our number-one celebrity, the author Danielle Steel, alleging that she is a “snob” despite the millions she has spent on our city’s homeless and mentally ill over the past decades.

I am Thomas J. Perkins. Soap opera vérité writer Danielle Steel divorced me, so I became ex-husband number five. I own a mansion and a yacht.

Again.

This is a very dangerous drift in our American thinking.

I am Thomas J. Perkins. I once killed a French doctor.

“I was arrested and tried in a foreign court in a language you don’t understand, by judges indifferent – or worse – to justice, represented by an inappropriate lawyer with the negative outcome preordained.”

And got fined $10,000 for manslaughter. Then I bought Jimmy Page’s Sussex castle and then an even bigger yacht. The biggest yacht in the world.

Again.

Kristallnacht was unthinkable in 1930; is its descendent “progressive” radicalism unthinkable now?

I am Thomas J. Perkins. The Dirty Digger prints my letters. I own a mansion and a yacht.

Again.

    I also come from a long line of Perkins and Thomas Perkins is probably a cousin of mine so In his defense I’d like to say that most rich people became rich because they worked hard for it. I am not rich and live pay check to pay check and would never belittle, criticize or feel animosity towards the rich. I believe that money should not define a person.

    . . but it’s perfectly fine for rich people to liken themselves to holocaust victims. You don’t see a certain amount of chutzpah being wielded here, on top of all the power and media access?

    And, sorry, Tammy, but most of the rich people in America merely inherited the wealth. Or did you think money evaporated at death? The children of Sam Walton all became among the 10 richest people in America when he died, inheriting over $20 billion each. The Rockefellers are still rich, too. That’s how it goes in America.
