In a move that sounds like something Ann Coulter would say, Trump ultra-fanboy and “poor rich white guy” enthusiast Wayne Allen Root announced this week that Republicans would win more elections if they could only strip voting rights from welfare recipients and women who use “free contraception.”
Root, a writer for the Conservative Tribute (who proudly announced Obama was waging a “jihad against America“) and the devious mastermind behind the highly effective Apple boycott you’ve probably never heard of, made the remarks during a discussion with Rob Schilling on Monday.
In that discussion, Root noted that Conservatives would “win every single election” if people who received government services were barred from voting:
“So if the people who paid the taxes were the only ones allowed to vote, we’d have landslide victories. This explains everything! People with conflict of interest shouldn’t be allowed to vote.”
“If you collect welfare, you have no right to vote. The day you get off welfare, you get your voting rights back. The reality is, why are you allowed to have this conflict of interest that you vote for the politician who wants to keep your welfare checks coming and your food stamps and your aid to dependent children and your free health care and your Medicaid, your Medicare and your Social Security and everything else?”
It explains everything! Except for the fact that you couldn’t be more wrong if you tried! Since, as we all know, Republican-dominated states — so-called “Red States” — depend far more on federal money than blue ones. If you banned welfare cases from voting, conservative turnout would collapse overnight.
Clearly, this idiot doesn’t realize that everyone has an interest in voting because everyone receives government services in some form or another, but his thinking is probably along the lines of, “everyone who doesn’t think like me is wrong and has a bias.”
So where does this leave people on Social Security and Medicare? That’s government assistance, too. But don’t worry, Trumpbro Root’s got you covered — see, those people wouldn’t be prevented “because you paid into the system.”
I mean, if you pay taxes, you paid into the system. And that includes things like sales and related taxes.
Does that make any goddamn sense? Nope. Not unless you’re coming at it from, “let’s ban black people from voting.” Because then it makes perfect sense, especially if you’re still stupid enough to believe Reagan’s lie about the “welfare queen” — who was always coded African American, and no amount lying can prove otherwise.
Not that Trumpbro would ever admit that. He continued:
“But all the other stuff. all the other goodies, free Obama phones, free contraception, you know what, you can get them but you shouldn’t be allowed to vote, it’s a conflict of interest. Take that away, we’d win every single election in this country.”
You keep telling yourself that, sunshine. We’ll still be over here, pointing at laughing at how ignorant, stupid, and bigoted you are.
