Beck played a clip of Bloom in which he said the following:
Generally speaking we get the joke. We know that the free market is nonsense. We know that the whole point is to game the system, to beat the market, or at least find someone who will pay you a lot of money because they’re convinced that there is a free lunch. We know this is largely about power, that it’s an adults only, no limit game. We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun. And we get it that if you want a friend, you should get a dog.
Here’s the video footage of Bloom’s statement:
Dunn, who is President Obama’s White House communications director, backed away from her previous praise of Mao by claiming she was only joking when she called him “one of the two people that I turn to most.”
What is it with these people? Can’t they quote someone other than the Chinese Hitler?
