Russell Simmons

on NYC Homeless

'THEY'RE F**KED'

10/31/2012 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

103012_rusell_simmons_launch
Russell Simmons says the homeless people who live in NYC are totally "f**ked" ... after Hurricane Sandy ravaged the city ... and now he's placing the blame on Mayor Bloomberg. 

Simmons says he's grateful he was in L.A. during the storm, but says he's positive some of his properties sustained damage -- "My pad in the Hamptons might be twisted."

But when we brought up New York's homeless population, Russell couldn't have been more blunt -- "They're f**cked ... it's terrible."

"I mean I love Mayor Bloomberg," Simmons said ... "But he did a sh**ty job with the homeless ... and now look at the mess ... really, I don't know what to say."

Well here's a thought...why don't you and some of your pals put them up in your Hamptons homes. I"m sure they are empty for the winter anyway.

YOU "don't KNOW what to DO"???? How about while you and yours are sitting safe and warm you poney up some money maybe after you sell one of your Many mansions, and get to helping those homeless and Less fortunate? There's an idea, Genius.

New Obama slogan has long ties Marxism.
~
"The name Forward carries a special meaning in socialist political terminology. It has been frequently used as a name for socialist, communist and other left-wing newspapers and publications,"


The slogan "Forward!" reflected the conviction of European Marxists and radicals that their movements reflected the march of history, which would move forward past capitalism and into socialism and communism.

Load up the buses and put tents on your property in the Hamptons for them. I'm sure the neighbors won't mind a bit.

Simmons PUT UP OR SHUT UP!!! Do you really think people care what you say? People are doing the best they can in a terrible situation. Stop being a Monday Morning Quarterback & HELP THE HOMELESS!!! All you do is TALK, you're a 1%'er but do nothing to help the 99% that you think everything should be done for them....SPREAD YOU WEALTH MAN!!
