The Poor Are EVIL!

That seemed to be the message of Glenn Beck’s latest rant deriding folks lining up for what he delightfully terms “Obama cash” in Detroit and other places hit hard by the current economic recession.

Hey, how about if Fox News corralled some Wall Street traders and asked them where the bailout funds came from? Or, for that matter, how about asking your basic “man on the street” any question at all about economics…

But no — instead, let’s interview some desperately poor people who are lined up for welfare and ask them about where their handouts are ultimately coming from, in order to score some really cheap political points, and the same time, provide the rest of America with an easy opportunity to laugh uncontrollably at their plight, while dismissing them as nothing but freeloading parasites.

But then, you know… it is the poor, who after all, we should remember (according to some narratives), caused the whole financial meltdown through their selfish, immoral greed, and created the economic recession — the Bloggin’ Tories have repeatedly told me so… Jimmy Carter and poor people: they’re the primary causative agents in this whole mess! And liberals!!! (Of course… because everything rotten in the world can be easily attributed to them!)

    Only in America. Really. Can you imagine this guy surviving anywhere else?

  2. In a word, No.

    Obviously, Beck taps into some weird, angry stream of consciousness that’s lurking out there, but it’s difficult to fathom. Demographically speaking however, I guess it isn’t that difficult to round up a few million wingnuts every night who enjoy being preached to by a crazed lunatic.

    More Republicans voted against bailout money for the banks than Democrats last year.

    But it’s a fair question, has Fox News criticized the bailout money for the banks?

  5. Reminds me of Bell telephone rebate ad several years back, interviewing an older woman about what she might do with her rebate – “Give to the poor ?” she suggests and then laughs “naw.”
    The poor are so funny, aren’t they ?

  6. Amazing – they claim to be such devout Christians. They ignore Christ’s teachings when it benefits them.

    People lining up for government handouts back in the day!? Nope! Never happened!

  8. Navvy — Heh. Would that by chance be some of the same folks who’d later be thrown into mortal combat with the Nazis and subsequently called “the Greatest Generation” by a certain sentimental journalist?

    But of course there’s a difference… I don’t see any black women in that line-up.

    I’m sure they have. After January.
