To This We Have Been Reduced – “The needy are animals…”

There’s very little I can add to the unbelievably offensive comments regarding the needy spouted by South Carolina’s asswipe of a Lt. Governor, Andre Bauer. So let’s just start with his own words:

My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better…

I can show you a bar graph where free and reduced lunch has the worst test scores in the state of South Carolina,” adding, “You show me the school that has the highest free and reduced lunch, and I’ll show you the worst test scores, folks. It’s there, period

When I lost my job back in 2009, I *DID* take federal assistance for the first time in my life, and after 23 years of continuous employment. Does that make me an animal? Though not exactly where Bauer was going, I’m sure that in today’s GOP you could find at least one (perhaps many) morons who’d gladly parrot this kind of dangerous thinking. And the ‘thuglicans wonder why they can only seem to win elections when they capitalize on Democratic myopia.

I predict that this loathsome prick will soon be out of a job himself, and I wonder if, then, he’ll be the one considering federal assistance.

  1. Actually, this kind of “logic” has been popular among right wing whackjobs for a long time. I predict a bright future for this guy since he is in a thoroughly backwards state like South Carolina. Maybe a trip to the “Appalachian Trail” could improve his poll numbers if he gets any shit for this.

  2. I wish I shared your prediction about the asswipe being out of a job soon. Unfortunately, we’re talking South Carolina here. It seems the more twisted and demented (or is that DeMinted) a politician is, the better the S. Carolina voters like him.

  3. Dave… Do you think he’ll get a chance to hear: “Ya’ got a real p’rty mouth…boy!”? [Sorry…couldn’t resist!]

    Lew… Perhaps the next step is to be pro-active. Take away their food, water, livelihood, until they learn to tote the ‘thuglican line?

  4. Hi Kvatch,
    thanks for visiting Mad Mikes!
    It’s my observation that those most willing to condemn govt assistance are the first to use it when in need, as you indicated.
    What a no-conscience jerk the guy is.

  5. Tom… True enough, of all the red states, SC seems to be one of the reddest.

    Oso… Well perhaps Bauer will only apply for school-lunches for his kids. ;-)
