WHAT NEXT, WELFARE MOMS CAUSE CANCER?
It’s a rough country to live in for welfare recipients. In addition to facing the stigma of being poor and having to rely on government assistance, they are chronically chastised by TEApublicans for being a bunch of lazy people who don’t want to work, or for being “Welfare Queens,” a term that was started by Saint Ronnie Reagan way back in the mid-70’s and has steadfastly stuck with TEApublicans during all of this time.
And there is an overabundance of memes floating around out there on Facebook with clever little statements like “I go to work so I can support those who are on welfare,” one of which caused me to go on this rant recently.
But perhaps the most blatant and misplaced blaming of welfare recipients – and more specifically, welfare moms – that ever occurred in history took place in Oklahoma yesterday, a state famous for their high levels of TEAnutbaggery, where House Republican James Lankford blamed “welfare moms” for the recent series of gun violence as part of a scheme for those welfare moms to get more money from the government if they put their kids on psychotropic drugs. That’s right, folks… you just can’t make this up. Never mind that the recent shooters have come from well-to-do families, and not poor families… somehow, those yucky welfare moms are to blame.
Now, TEApublicans are infamous for miscasting blame for tragic events that happen. They blame our sinning ways for seemingly every natural disaster that occurs in this country. But this takes the cake. The folks in Oklahoma must be SO proud.
