Until now, we’ve let our lawyers, guns and money speak for us. But with Bernie “The People’s Muppet” Sanders talking such trash about us, it’s time to hit the streets and speak up for ourselves.
Remember: Whose streets? Wall Street’s!
You can do this with a few simple steps:
First, make a name for yourself, man! I didn’t get to be Phil T. Rich by sitting around watching the stock ticker. Well, actually I did. As did so many of my friends at the country club: Jen Trification. Iona Bigga Yacht. Robbin D. Poor. You get the idea.
Third, get behind a message. Make some signs, banners, talking points, etc. Here’s a few we came up with back at the apres-ski lodge after spear-hunting endangered dolphins:
Billionaires Against Bernie: Because We Have Everything to Lose
.01% and Proud!
Because we want to keep making more in an hour than you make in a year.
Democratic Socialism, Except the Opposite.
Don’t Get Any Big Ideas — Please.
Free Tuition? Get Back To Waxing My Car, Peon!
Citizens United was supposed to prevent this.
Denying Climate Change Since We Knew It Was Real
Profits Not People
Wealthcare, Not Healthcare!
Or, better yet, make up your own.
Now, take action!
With your good name, dashing duds, and sharply-lettered messages, you’re ready to roll up your diamond cufflinks and mix it up with the hoi polloi!
Gather together a few like-minded Billionaires in your area. Figure out where Bernie is going to be next. Or where his great unwashed followers will be gathering in your area. Show up in a limo. Or simply wade into the crowd. (Some tips.) Proudly display your signs, and if you want to chant, here are a few good ones:
We are the 1%!
Status Quo! Status Quo! Status Quo! (sung to the tune of U-S-A! U-S-A!)
This is what plutocracy looks like!
(Many more chants here.)
Finally, report your action.
I’m Fearing the Bern! Are you Fearing the Bern?
—Phil T. Rich, Co-Chair, Billionaires Against Bernie, SuperPAC
