Anarchists Set Up Guillotine Outside Mansion Owned by Jeff Bezos
Even the world’s most wealthy man who owns the anti-Trump Washington Post could not escape the scorn from the left-wing mob that has been on the march since the killing of George Floyd in police custody last month.
Media reports on Monday indicated that “activists” set up the guillotine in front of Bezos’ stunning D.C. spread, which reportedly racked up $16,800 in parking tickets alone last in the past three years for renovations. Business Insider reported that the Amazon CEO paid $23 million in cash in 2016 and spent millions in renovations.

A video that circulated on social media showed two protesters standing in front of the guillotine, saying that when they “become threatened, and we have no voice, the knives come out.”
The Washington Examiner reported that the protesters there demanded that his company be abolished. The website pointed to a flier that read, “Amazon works directly with police to surveil us, stoking racist fears in the name of profit. Doubling down on their union busting and mistreatment of workers, Amazon fired and racially slandered labor organizer Chris Smalls. Join us to tell Bezos enough is enough!”
Bezos came out in support of the Black Lives Matter message earlier this month and announced that the company was going to attempt to end the “inequitable and brutal treatment of Black and African Americans.” The company pledged $10 million to organizations to bring about social justice.
Amazon has been targeted in the past over its treatment of employees that work in its sprawling factories. The Guardian reported that Amazon was called out after its executives called Smalls, a warehouse worker, “not smart or articulate.”
He was fired after helping to organize a work stoppage at a warehouse in Staten Island, New York.
“He’s not smart, or articulate, and to the extent the press wants to focus on us versus him, we will be in a much stronger PR position than simply explaining for the umpteenth time how we’re trying to protect workers,” David Zapolsky, the company’s general counsel, said in an email obtained by Vice News.
The flier took aim at Bezos who has been criticized for pocketing enormous sums of money (He’s worth more than $100 billion.) while workers in factories make little more than minimum wage.
“END THE ABUSE AND PROFITEERING. ABOLISH THE POLICE, THE PRISONS, AND AMAZON,” the flier said, according to the Examiner.
