Billionaire VC Compares “Progressive War” On Rich to Nazism

Silicon Valley venture capitalist Tom Perkins might have just written the most insulting and insensitive article of all time, and the Wall Street Journal actually published it. In a Jan. 24 op-ed titled “Progressive Kristallnacht Coming?” Mr. Perkins—who co-founded Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield and Byers—suggests that the “progressive war” on America’s “rich” is pretty much the same thing as the Nazis’ persecution of Jews in Hitler’s Germany. 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.” There is outraged public reaction to the Google buses carrying technology workers from the city to the peninsula high-tech companies which employ them.
