400-Pound Democrat: Republicans ‘Just Want People to Starve’

Posted by on Feb 12, 2014 at 10:54 am

If anyone is starving it’s because this slob is hogging all the food.

Well, if you’re one of the most liberal members of Congress, with one of the safest seats, I guess you can say this about Republicans.

Democratic Congressman Jerrold Nadler of New York – Manhattan to be exact – was caught on camera saying that Republicans “just want people to starve and it’s disgusting.”

Well, we know he won’t be going hungry any time soon:

    In the words of Robert Heinlein’s character Wyoming Knott from The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress, “In your case, cobber, it wouldn’t hurt.”

    Want people to starve….

    You know, that accusation goes beyond being merely false and is well into the realm of the childishly absurd.

    Nadler should be ashamed of himself for saying something so ridiculous.

    But then leftists have no shame, because they have no decency.

    This and arguments for raising minimum wage are very loud and persistent and annoying ways of screaming how badly ‘quantitive easing’ harms poor people most off all, hardest of all. It is only by sheer stupidity they can keep a constituency. Government eases its own debt by making money worth less. That harms people with less to begin with and stuck on fixed incomes. Liberal fiscal policies hurt poor people and this admits that. So just shut up and give it to them. You screwed them up so send them a check to make up for your interference and your malfeasance.

    “threw no fault of their own” (and Obama’s repeated “these hard working folks”)…exactly where do they get this from?

    This idiot and all altruists (and their are many – perhaps most of the people in the country) will never answer: by what right to you swipe money from me and my family to hand out to others (while skimming off your share to load up on bear claws)? Time was, they’d say ‘we’re our brother’s keeper’; today, it’s just ‘shut up you racist!’. Tomorrow it will be ‘what do you mean by YOUR money?’.

    I hate liberalism as much as the next lifelong ultra-conservative — I’m almost sixty and read Buckley’s “Up From Liberalism” in ninth grade, so I’ve been at this hating-liberalism thing for a very long time.

    But, to talk about something else that takes me back to ninth grade, there is nothing in the liberal agenda that requires me to respond by sneering at fat people.

    Nadler sounds like a snarling idiot. But not all fat people are snarling idiots. You might even know some fat people. You might have a parent, a wife, or some other loved one who is fat. For those who do, are you so proud of the comments made on this page that would you given them a link to it?

    Post12:” Not all fat people are snarling idiots.”No one would argue against that statement.Moreover,this article reflects irony-perhaps the short story ,”The Ransom of little Big Chief”,by O”Henry was not required reading in ninth grade in your school district.

    For Nadler to state:”..Republicans just want people to starve…” makes him appear as a “snarling idiot.”Looking at a obese person making that statement is ironic.

    Nadler is pretty much an obnoxious guy. If every time he made an obnoxious comment, it would be attributed to “Jabba the Hut”, he would mellow pretty quickly.

    Irony. Really. I confess irony is not the first thing that pops into my mind when people make remarks such as, e.g., “this slob is hogging all the food,” “OINK!”, “Nadler the Hutt”, “Mr. Creosote…

    Irony is not something I generally associate with sledgehammers.

    Your quintessential Congressional “pig at the trough”. He obviously puts his fork in the pork.

    Sorry to see that Jerry Nadler has apparently regained all the weight he had lost. Heart attack territory. My politics and his are certainly not congruent, but as a human being he is worth my compassion.

    They don’t even stop to think before they open their mouths anymore, do they? They’re that confident the press (or GOP) won’t call them on it.

    Get that guy a top hat and a frock coat and he’s a Thomas Nast cartoon from the Golden Age.

  12. Erik Larson on 13/13/14 at 12:20 pm

    An enterprising sort near his district ought to organize a food drive for Congressman Nadler. Just embarrass the hell out of the guy right at his office.

    I’m always amazed at how our elite leaders demonize those on the other side of the aisle. Really? The Republicans want people to starve?

    I am fed up with this nonsense. We need serious oversight on foodstamps. I live in New Mexico and usually I am the only one paying for my groceries in any checkout line I am in. I really get sick and tired of paying for food for those that are poor, so that they then can pay for their alcohol, brand name 50 lb bag of pet food, and clothes. I have tried to be understanding, but in truth…enough is enough.

    Pavlov had it right…and the Dem’s have the po’folk salivating…here a vote, there a chump program.

    Trombonist, this story is just example #4556586954685489 of leftist hypocrisy. If you can’t see that… well, perhaps you should extract your head from wherever it currently resides. Have a nice day now, hear?
