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……
Well, the democrats do keep complaining about the obesity epidimic. I guess that would put an end to it.
So,… basically, this is kind of a “Damned if you do; damned if you don’t” sort of deal, correct?
Gotta hand it to you, Lori: I hadn’t considered that, and usually I’m the one with the twisted sense of humor!
Now you know why we get along so well. 🙂
Ironically, several studies indicate a higher incidence of obesity among the “impoverished” and food stamp recipients…. But I digress.
Seriously, can’t we get these dimwits on the Left to come up with NEW stupid lines? The “starving the kids”, “war on women”, blah X 3, is REALLY boring, and shows a complete lack of creativity…
Just shows how insensitive you are, Pgh. Those obese poor people are STARVING, dammit.
And it’s all the Republicans’ fault, too…..
Well, them, AND Bush, …AND the Koch brothers. AND Fox News, of course.
Hey, …talking like a liberal is EASY!
So taking someone from four double cheeseburgers for lunch to only three is starving them? Thanks for clearing up my confusion, bro!
Well, it’s closer to taking them from from 4 double cheeseburgers, to three double cheeseburgers and one regular cheeseburger.
But, yeah, close enough…
Does this mean less food in those backpacks the kids take home from school?
Well, according to our nation’s test scores, kids certainly aren’t bringing home any Text Books. So I’d suppose something has to be in there, right…?
