Quote from: Geolibertarian on Dec 22, 2013, 02:53:55 PMFor years I've been imploring the Austrian- and Chicago School-dominated "Right" to stop arrogantly and mindlessly blaming the poor for their own poverty, and to stop waxing hysterical about the figurative speck that's in the collective eye of social welfare recipients while directing only a small fraction (if even that much) of that same moral outrage at the comparative 20-ft beam that's in the collective eye of the recipients of corporate welfare (Wall Street mega-banks, derivatives speculators and war profiteers, of course, being among the top recipients).Why?Because all this does is give "left cover" to the corporate fascist agenda of Wall Street Democrats like Barack Obama, Jim Himes and Nancy Pelosi, thereby strengthening them politically.Unfortunately, and much to the giddy delight of Obama and the left-wing reactionaries who serve him, demonizing food stamp recipients all day -- and painting tens of millions of struggling Americans with the same stereotypical brush -- is apparently so much fun, and so perversely intoxicating to the ego, that right-wing reactionaries simply can't help themselves. They just can't resist giving Wall Street Democrats still more convenient foil against which to define themselves in the eyes of the bottom "47%."
