Pointing out the solely liberal phenomenon of casting any-and-all disagreement as “hate”, or some other similarly maximized pejorative, is hardly a new thought, I admit.
The examples are legion: in Salon, or the DailyKos, or simply tune into MSNBC on virtually any night of the week, and you’ll get a bellyful of it. Worse, they are simply voicing the same opinion (and often echoing the same language) as elected liberal Democrats in Congress, who seem to delight in ascribing the most horrific intentions to anyone who dares disagree with their policy goals.
But this is an especially perfect example: Democrat Representative Jerry Nadler of New York, who was recently asked about his “No” vote on the Farm Bill:
“They just want people to starve, …and it’s disgusting.”
Really, Mr. Nadler? That’s REALLY the Republican’s ultimate goal here? For people to starve? Doesn’t that seem sort of an …odd… goal for a political party to have?
People can’t vote for you if you starve ’em, after all. Heck, those folks might even be motivated to vote against you. Some people take being starved kinda personally, so I hear.
Never mind that the estimated Food Stamp fraud is approximately $750 million.
…that’s yearly, by the way.
But no, the GOP has no interest in that at all, right Mr. Nadler? Just as long as they can kill the maximum number of people, as if they’re trying to set high score on ‘Call Of Duty™ – U.S. Food Stamp Recipients’.
Yep, that makes perfect sense.
I’m sure it doesn’t matter a whit that Food Stamp usage is at an all-time high (1-out-of-5 families now receive them) under your party’s leadership, does it Mr. Nadler? No, of course not.
Or that the number of able-bodied adults without dependents (ABAWDs) on the food stamp rolls skyrocketed over the same time period. Over 2 million more Able-bodied Adults with NO KIDS, Mr. Nadler, who suddenly need to be on Food Stamps. Whose economy is this again?
Oh, yeah: yours.
I will give you credit for one thing, Jerry. You DID let slip a truth, accidentally I’m sure. You said, and I quote, “In this recession, where people can’t find jobs…” Yes! Exactly! The economy stinks, labor force participation is at a 35-year low, …and remind me again who has been in charge since 2008, creating utter chaos and confusion in the job market?
Oh, that’s right: you guys. I almost forgot!
Sorry, Jerry: all of your phony self-righteousness and hate-fueled rhetoric can’t detract from whose actually at fault around here, for pretty much everything.
“Disgusting“? Why, yes, it is……
