Earlier this week, former Vice President Dick Cheney slammed President Obama for supposedly spending more money on food stamps to feed America's poor than on the U.S. military.
President Obama “would rather spend the money on food stamps than he would on a strong military or support for our troops,” Cheney told Fox News host Sean Hannity, reported The Daily Beast.
Cheney failed to mention that many of the US military service members are on food stamps.
Last night, Hannity drudged up an old news story that appeared on "The O'Reilly Factor" of a California surfer who collects food stamps, doesn't have a job and is pursuing a musical career.
Fox News guest and Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes assured Hannity that "this guy doesn’t personify the problem.”
Then McInnes went off on Dominicans who live in New York City, noted Newshounds.us (video below).
"Here in New York, Dominicans go to the grocery store with their food stamps and the barrels that they ship back to the Dominican Republic are available at the grocery store,” stated McInnes.
“But it’s more palatable to use this surfer than it is to use people who represent the problem here,” added McInnes.
After Democratic activist Jehmu Greene said not to demonize all poor people who use food stamps, McInnes started bashing low income people.
“Why not? Let’s demonize them.” said McInnes. “Have you seen the poor? They’re gigantic. They’re overfed. There’s enough food and enough clothes in America. We’re full."
McInnes failed to mention that cheap fatty food such as soda and chips is loaded with calories, while fresh and healthy food is more expensive.
Instead, McInnes claimed that food stamps are just a "fat pill."
