  •  Does Newt hate white people? (10+ / 0-)

    Seeing as the majority of food stamp recipients are white, not black or Latino? Or is he saying that black and Latino people who get food stamps are lazy good for nothing leeches, while white people who get food stamps are forced to do so due to Obama's clearly radical anti-business, anti-white, Kenyan post-colonial Stalinist Muslim Alinsky policies, implemented by his Trotskyite enforcers like Geithner and Bernanke? And if so, how is he really all that different from Romney?

    Guess what--he isn't. They're both bottom feeders, just with different lizard skins.

      black and Latinos are shiftless and lazy -- even those with Harvard degrees and such and who have never been on food stamps...

      Naturally it wasn't earned, you know...

        When he was a child, along with his mother. Newt knows that, and chose his words carefully here. He's telling his poor white racist followers that a lazy no-good black radical slipped past the good people of America and now it's up to us to save America from him and his radical friends. It's 1932 all over again.

        •  Actually I wasn't really referring to Obama. (0+ / 0-)

          My point was simply that there are a LOT of black and brown folk who have never been on food stamps and have worked their way up.

          Yet many of those who prescribe to the 'southern strategy' way of thinking are equally resentful of those people as well.

          •  The whole welfare/food stamps attack (0+ / 0-)

            is just cover for a combination of self-pity, envy, hatred, laziness, self-loathing and anger at not being able to get ahead themselves, whether due to their own fault or the system. They feel lost and confused and victimized in a society that's moved past them, and resort to cheap excuses to avoid having to look in the mirror or at least end the self-pity and just move the fuck on.

            The Civil War ended in 1865, people. We won, you lost. Deal. With. It. Already.
