On the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange scumbag CNBC reporter Rick Santelli shouts at the top of his lungs the true ethos of America: “Let the winners take all, and to hell with the “losers”! It’s a fair bet that, given his credentials, and in classic upsidedown think, Santelli would loudly protest his Christian credentials if someone dared suggest he was being less than charitable. 

Rick Santelli joined CNBC Business News as on-air editor in June 1999, reporting live from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade. His focus, according to his NBC bioblurb, “is primarily on interest rates, foreign exchange, and the Federal Reserve.” He is said to be “a veteran trader and financial executive, [who] has provided live reports on the markets in print and on local and national radio and television.” He joined CNBC from the Institutional Financial Futures and Options at Sanwa Futures, L.L.C. At that piranha tank, he was a vice president handling institutional trading and hedge accounts for a variety of futures related “products”. 

Editor’s Note: The comment thread accompanying this video on YouTube is suitably pathetic, reflecting the CNBC audience mentality. Here’s a couple of typically quasi-illiterate comments: 

If the rich get bonuses and have alot of money then so be it. They work just as hard as you do (hopefully) 
I am so sick of the rich being portrayed as the evil ones, the problem isn’t them, its Obama and his disciples.

….

All this moron had to do (obama) was announce some tax cuts or a an extension of Bush tax cuts and the market would regain lost value perhaps 1000 points or more. Theres no doubt this precipitous decline is due to obamas rotten handling, wasteful gluttonous spending and anti-capitalist vitriole that will shake the foundations of this once great nation. I think a Romney/Jindal ’12 ticket will bring back a reagan type leadership we desparately need.

Disgraceful. And reminds us once again that there can be no reconciliation with proud ignoramuses, moral imbeciles like these. Much as a result of a strong libertarian-capitalist tradition in America, these are lost, terminally polluted minds.— PATRICE GREANVILLE

  1. This clinical level of narcissism and avarice is expressed without a trace of self-consciousness, as such perverse values–generally articulated with more subtlety–represent a blueprint for success in this culture.
