What If We Cut Off Food Stamps And Starve The Poors In Baltimore? That Might Work!
Baltimore's citizens are as mad as hell and sick and tired of being sick and tired, and every jerkhole with a mouth has an opinion about what theyreallyneed to shut 'em up and make 'em stop being so mad and sick and tired and and protesting about it and getting themselves beaten up and killed by the police all the time.
Fox News says more dads and Jesus. Sen. Rand Paul says more dads and morals. The NRA says more guns and more freedoms to Stand Your Ground. Texas Rep. Bill Flores says less gay marriage. Every conservative agrees less Obama would help too.
Oh, but here's a novel approach from Republican Patrick McDonough, a state delegate who represents Baltimore County, who was guest hosting a radio show on Wednesday and agreed with a caller that depriving the families of protesters of their welfare benefits would be a great way to crack down on these "thugs" (which is NOT racist because Obama said it too):
“That’s an idea and that could be legislation,” replied McDonough. “I think that you could make the case that there is a failure to do proper parenting and allowing this stuff to happen, is there an opportunity for a month to take away your food stamps?”
It's really hard to comprehend just how rotten your soul has to be to think that starving people is an excellent incentive to quell racial tensions and income inequality. But McDonough, it will not surprise you to learn, is a real tough-on-crime kind of a guy, and in 2013, he proposeda Stand Your Ground law for Maryland so citizens could protect themselves from "mobs of black youths." What? You've got a problem with that? You're just playing "the race card."
McDonough is also a "pro-life" "Christian," of course, because Jesus was ALL about starving poor kids and giving people the "right" to kill each other. Right?
