Roseanne Barr: Behead bankers who don’t give up wealth
Comedienne and actress Roseanne Barr told RT’s Max Keiser Saturday that bankers should each give up all but $100 million of their personal wealth or face decapitation.
Barr explained that she had spoken at the “Occupy Wall Street” protests in September.
“I ended up speaking there to announce my candidacy of presidency of these United States as well as prime minister of Israel,” she joked.
Keiser and Barr met on Twitter after she tweeted that “[i]f corporations are people then Goldman Sachs needs to be executed for premeditated mass murder, terrorism, mayhem and grand larceny.”
“Would this be your platform running for president,” Keiser asked.
“It’s part of it. Part of my platform is, of course, that the guilty must be punished and that we can no longer let our children see the guilty get away with murder. Because it teaches them that they don’t have to have any morals and as long as they have guns and are bullies that they’ll win. And I don’t think that’s a good message.”
“I do say that I am for the return of the guillotine and that is for the worst of the worst of the guilty.”
She added: “I first would allow the guilty bankers the ability to pay back anything over $100 million personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. And if they are unable to live on that amount then they should go to the re-education camps and if that doesn’t help then be beheaded.”
Barr’s interview begins at 13:40 in this RT video, broadcast Oct. 1, 2011.
