I’m not accusing all Republicans of holding these views, but I haven’t heard many cries of outrage or calls for disavowal.
I guess being brought up by liberal Democratic parents, I was predisposed to believe this is how Republicans really think of the poor. But I know that’s not true of all of them.
On the other hand, why the silence? Here, I’ll give Republicans a chance to say that isn’t how they think. and please don’t waste your breath telling me Democrats think bad things. It will indicate to me you are avoiding the question because you can’t answer it or the answer is damning. The question about your party’s soul.
Wouldn’t you be ashamed to be in the same party that encourages the likes of this repulsive pol? I’m talking about South Carolina Republican gubernatorial candidate, Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer, who delivered himself of this wisdom:
(CNN) – South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, under fire for drawing a comparison between needy people and “stray animals,” said Monday that he regrets his choice of words.
In a phone interview with CNN, Bauer, a Republican candidate for governor, said, “I wish I had used a different metaphor.” Bauer told an audience Friday that people receiving government assistance are like “stray animals” because “they breed” and “don’t know any better.”
No Andre, you’re the one who doesn’t know any better. Thousands of years of moral evolution that have placed a high value on helping the unfortunate passed you by, you amoral ignoramus. And don’t compound it by lying, you heartless creep. You don’t regret it; you only regret the momentary media revelation of your repugnant true nature.
