Over at a site called American Thinker, which might be considered an oxymoronic title given the piece of conservative ‘thought’ that appears there under the byline of a particularly ugly piece of work called Matthew Vadum, you can find the following lead to Mr. Vadum’s article:
Why are left-wing activist groups so keen on registering the poor to vote?
Because they know the poor can be counted on to vote themselves more benefits by electing redistributionist politicians. Welfare recipients are particularly open to demagoguery and bribery.
Registering them to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals. It is profoundly antisocial and un-American to empower the nonproductive segments of the population to destroy the country — which is precisely why Barack Obama zealously supports registering welfare recipients to vote.
That’s where the Vadums and the Perrys and the Pauls and the Bachmanns and the rest of the whole raft of Republican sociopaths want to take us, into the land of hating the poor and the minorities, into the land of superior beings (wealthy Republicans and Tea Partiers) and inferior beings (everybody else).
Vadum represents those people who would actually put Granny before a death panel and shove her under the bus if she were poor or brown or disabled or in some way needful of help from society. Or perhaps more likely they wouldn’t even bother with death panels, considering them an unnecessary expenditure of money that could be better spent on champagne, caviar, and expensive whores (inferior women, of course, but useful). No, they’d just let the old broad die in the gutter, her pain felt by no one, her cries unheard by her country, her government, or her moral and financial superiors.
Their only measure of man is money.
In their world the ugliest minds and the dirtiest souls will rule. The world has been there before, far too often. The Republicans hunger for it, thirst for it, lust for it, can neither see nor imagine a world that rises above their filthy vision of humanity.
The Vadums of this country are evidence of how small, how tiny and mean, how ugly the American spirit has become. And evidence that it’s getting smaller and uglier every day.
