Feeding the Poor Is Like Feeding Stray Dogs, They Just Keep Breeding

South Carolina Lt. Govenor Andre Bauer told  a town hall meeting that feeding the poor is like feeding stray animals according to Nathaniel Cary of the Greenville News

"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," Bauer said.

Do you know why we feed the poor, Lt. Governor Bauer?  One of the practical reasons we" feed the poor," you moron, is so that you and your family have a measure of safety and security in your little protected white cocoon.  If we didn't, the poor would most assuredly take it from you, they will snatch it from your children, they will rob your constitutents, the will take it,  violently if need be, from their businesses and they will take if by force from your friends.  But, more importantly, we feed the poor, sir, because to some degree or another we are all the poor.  Your specific form of poverty appears to be moral bankruptcy.


  1. I bet he's in the front row at Church every Sunday, too.

  2. Obviously, I posted this because the claim infuriates me. When I hear an elected official, really anyone--speak of "the poor," as if they are alien creatures, not the same as you or me--I am truly astounded. I wonder, how far we have evolved if we are unable to see our interrelationship to one another--rich and poor. Human worth has nothing to do with wealth and privilege, as Lt. Gov. Bauer ably demonstrates. His claim is worthy of Dickens. His heart is a lump of coal.

  3. What a stinker!!!! He's going to turn out to be just like Old Strom, with some poor woman as his mistress on the sly.
