Asked about Elizabeth Warren, Buffett said what I can’t help but think is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.
That’s interesting considering how many horrible things are said about and towards poor people on a daily basis who don’t destroy the world’s economy, don’t bankrupt nations for profit and resource theft, don’t force people to work in sweatshops for shrinking wages. But by all means, let’s handle rich fuckers with kid gloves because we just don’t want them to cry.
“Hate the sin, love the sinner,” is the dumbest fucking quote ever, usually involving letting gay people off gently rather than burning them alive or stoning them to death, because religion is so much nicer now. I’ve never heard it being applied to rich motherfuckers. Gay people hurt nobody, but rich people, the likes of whom Warren has been holding accountable, have hurt people. Lots of people. Damned near everyone, in fact. Making this the dumbest way imaginable that such a phrase could be used. And I never thought its original way could be topped in dumbness.
I hope telling Buffett that doesn’t hurt his little feelings though.
