Multimillionaire John Cusack Attacks ‘the 1 Percent of the 1 Percent’ at Sanders Rally

‘They fear us ... because we’re going to take on their greed and their corruption and we’re going to win’


CUSACK: “...And as we can see literally everyday, the house is on fire.  But, as Bernie tells us, this is no time for despair, this is no time for anything but action.  Because if we stand together with him, the future is still indeed unwritten.  And there is nothing more powerful than a movement whose time has come.”

“We have never had a movement candidate this close to power with a revolutionary movement he’s led and built ready to go all the way to change the country and help heal the world.”

“When people of every race, creed, gender, everybody stands together in solidarity, when all of us whose labor powers this economy stop the profiteering and tell the billionaires and the corporate tyrannies that it’s time to start all human beings with respect and dignity.”

“A few examples … a few examples of this [inaudible] compassion for society.  How about healthcare as a human right.  Medicare for all.  So, if you live in this country and you get sick, you don’t have to be a rich person to go to the doctor, and if you want to get an education, you don’t have to go into a modern day debtors prison.  That’s not such a radical ask.  Public colleges and universities tuition free.  Cancelling student debt, medical debt relief.  Guaranteeing a living wage.  And most crucially, transforming the economy with the ‘Green New Deal’ which will be by necessity in fact the biggest economic transformation of the United States since World War II.”

“So, has the world caught up to Bernie Sanders’ moral vision?  Look it’s up to us, but there are some encouraging signs.  The corporate media, as I said, they used to hate us, and then they ignored us, and then they acted like we weren’t there, and now they just seem really confused about us.  Wall Street hates us, Drug companies hate us, insurance companies hate us, fossil fuel companies, military industrial complex, and the one percent of the one percent.  No, they don’t hate us, you know what it is?  They fear us.  Do you wanna know why?  Because we’re gonna take on their greed and corruption and we’re gonna win.”
