GOP candidate: People on public assistance ‘like stray animals’

South Carolina Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, who is running for the Republican nomination for governor, has compared giving people government assistance to “feeding stray animals.” “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.

Just like Jesus said. Don’t help the poor or they’ll breed like rabbits.

  1. “My grandmother was not a highly educated woman” — neither is the grandson

  2. …no but he does have a point.

  3. Actually, no, he doesn’t.

    You know the number one way to decrease a birth rate amongst a poor population? Uplift. By making them less poor and better educated (particularly the females).

  4. “… you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.” This particularly applies to governors of said state and trips to Argentina with their “mistresses”. Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer is obviously rushing towards this office and this “side benefit” as fast as his mouth can carry him.

  5. You don’t make people less poor and educated by throwing money at them.

  6. Actually, the world cannot sustain more right wingers as it is, and we’ll have floods to prove it.
