"If the poor have no bread, why, let them eat cake!!"
In the post-Katrina world, everything changed. The black-heart neo-con let-them-eat-cake-ists rose up from cemeteries everywhere like a zombie army, and they're proudly outing themselves with Black-Heart Pride as they continue to drag America deeper and deeper into moral and fiscal bankruptcy.
Proud to be racist: Barbara Bush, chuckling about the "disadvantaged" doing so very well for themselves by becoming refugees in Texas: noting her own "scary" feeling that all these so very black people might swarm in and outnumber her white-bread Stepford Wife society.
Proud to be racist and explicitly anti-public education: William Bennett, gambling addict-cum-black-heart-ethics pundit, rapping on radio about aborting black babies, thus bringing down the crime rate, and then lying about not having said exactly what he said about if one were to abort all black babies, the result would be bringing down the crime rate. Equating blackness with criminality. Oh, and let's not forget Reed Hundt's report of Bennett nixing support for putting internet access in classrooms: "[Bennett] told me he would not help, because he did not want public schools to obtain new funding, new capability, new tools for success. He wanted them, he said, to fail so that they could be replaced with vouchers, charter schools, religious schools, and other forms of private education."
Proud to be racist and sexist, too: noted supremacist theoretician Charles "The Bell Curve" Murray penning a post-Katrina Wall Street Journal column bemoaning "inert women doing nothing to help themselves or their children."
His "The Hallmark of the Underclass" says: " . . [I]mages show us the face of the hard problem: those of the looters and thugs [Murray fails to note reports of looting were exaggerated], and those of inert women doing nothing to help themselves or their children."
Inert? Inert? I was puzzled about the "inert" thing.
Say, would that be--helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon, radon?
Nah. Plus--what's "ert"?
Then I figured it out: when Murray says, "inert" he means: fat.
Chuckie's upset about fat Southern women--uh, that would be fat black women, and perhaps fat white women--doing nothing to help themselves or their children.
Now, this is pretty weird in and of itself. What evidence does he have that these fat women do nothing for themselves or their children? His evidence apparently is--their fatness. They lumber when they walk, therefore they're useless social parasites? Let's not talk about the relationship of obesity to economic class, let's not talk about who has enough money to buy protein and fruits and vegetables, and who gets stuck with McDonald's and processed fatty foods.
Charles Murray's basic mindset is emblematic of the black-heart let-them-eat-cake-ists:
Basic principle is: it's their own damn fault.
This applies across the board to whatever problem we're facing.
It's their own damn fault.
In black-heart thinking, fatness is taken as a sign of moral weakness. Actually, more to the point, everything is seen as a sign of moral weakness, and therefore every social ill is regarded as being well-deserved.
Criminality is regarded as completely unrelated to an ego-driven, materialistic society, and completely unrelated to miserable McJobs in McGhettos, such that full-time employment is insufficient to pay one's rent, buy food, buy clothing.
The advertisingly-hypnotically-induced lust for ego-centric uber-pimpoid luxury which bombards Americans 24/7 is seen as having nothing to do with helping fuel forays into crime, an industry open to persons of all races and ethnic origins, without need for education or training or "Daddy's friends," and an industry which can produce a very very tidy capitalistic profit. Huzzah.
As if that's not enough, Chuck suggests that "the lack of home ownership is not caused by the inability to save money from meager earnings, but because the concept of thrift is alien."
Oho? Well, slap them poor people's hands, now!
In fact, our Chuckie states that "unemployment in the underclass is not caused by lack of jobs or job skills, but by the inability to get up every morning and go to work."
Come on, Chuckster. You're racist. Get used to it. Stop beating around the bush.
Speaking of which, tell me when our little Bubble Boy had the ability to get up every morning and go to work?
He's never done it in his life. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it.
So why is our lazy, stupid, shiftless, thriftless, reckless, feckless Bubble Boy not part of the American underclass?
You think it might have a little something to do with Mummy and Daddy's M-O-N-E-Y?
Feh, Mr. Murray.
