Rick Santelli Calls for Revolution


This video of Rick Santelli freaking out on the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange has been making the rounds of the Internet since it aired on CNBC this morning, fomenting revolution among Capitalist Choads in its wake. Santelli is pissed off about the Obama administration’s bailout measures so far, in particular the housing plan the administration announced yesterday, and he wants America to stand up and revolt before we turn into some kind of not-even-tropical version of Cuba. “You know,” he yells, as the traders cheer him on in the background, “Cuba used to have mansions and a relatively decent economy. They moved from the individual to the collective. Now they’re driving ‘54 Chevys.” He then vows revolution before being cut off by a nervous-looking Carl Quintanilla. It’s pretty awesome.
