Maryland Lawmaker Suggests Suspending Food Stamps for Parents of Rioting Youth in Baltimore [+video]

patrickmcdonough_featuredRepublican state Del. Patrick McDonough of Maryland recently suggested that the parents of Baltimore youth involved in riots and looting should lose their food stamps.

McDonough was the guest-host of a radio program on Wednesday when he took a call from a listener who brought up the idea of taking away “benefits” such as “welfare” from the parents, noted The Intercept.

McDonough told the caller in part, “That’s an idea and that could be legislation. I think if you could make the case that there is a failure to do proper parenting and allowing this stuff to happen, is there an opportunity for a month to take away your food stamps?”

McDonough added that such a proposal would not likely pass the legislature “because it seems a little bit harsh,” but added that there should be a way to “connect to the lack of parenting.”

Later on the show, McDonough expressed his desire for a study of the “thug nation” of “young people” who are “violent, they’re brutal, their mindset is dysfunctional to the point of being dangerous.” (Read more from “Maryland Lawmaker Suggests Suspending Food Stamps for Parents of Baltimore Youth” HERE)

    Well there is at least one parent that did it right and made her kid go home. Now the Child Welfare are accusing her of child abuse.. Get rid of every liberal ass hole in government and you will not have these problems.

    Stop all food stamps for Everyone in America. God back to giving out government commodities. That way they can’t eat high on the hog off taxpayer money, but at the same time won’t starve to death. This would be an incentive for some lazy a$$’s to get a job so they could eat more tasty food.

    Let’s get to the heart of the black problem in America:

    It’s called the blame game for a payday.

    We’ve let this crap go on for too long it has kept our nation from being great.

    First of all blacks sold blacks (their own kind) into slavery and brought them here. White people didn’t.

    The statistics do not prove the continual lie that whites are out to kill blacks. We need to nip that statement in the butt every time somebody makes it.

    The truth. There is more black on black crime period.

    Blacks abort more babies and then call white people murders. Seriously!

    There is no accountability in black families. Too many absent fathers to help raise their own.

    Funny how these families who complain about the death of their children weren’t even present in their children’s lives. It is all about a payday. Using their deaths for a profit.

    Why didn’t they get their kids help. Why didn’t they stop the crimes and drugs their children were involved in.

    Nobody wants to see anyone die period.

    The biggest issue in the black community isn’t racism it is bad parenting.

    It’s take a village to raise a child. It takes parents who are present to teach ethics, morality, respect for others.

    It’s about hard work. Showing by doing.

    It is not the governments job to create jobs. The free enterprise system is the greatest power this nation has. What built this country. Americans create jobs, not Washington DC.

    Handouts are what have destroyed this nations work ethic. Nobody wants to work when they can get it for free.

    And your are far removed from the days of slavery. You are owed nothing. You should be thankful to live in the greatest nation on earth.

    And no these youths have not lived with decades of racism. They haven’t been alive that long. They believe what they are taught even if it is a lie.

    Respect yourselves, make something of yourselves and your own communities. The blacks biggest problem is that they have no role models.

    The majority of Americans hate slavery.

    If blacks hate crime quit committing it. Your high incarceration rate is because of you. Don’t you think we tired of paying the prison bills. Get a job, make something of yourself. Be a productive American citizen and a role model for the next black generation. Aren’t you tired of the lies.

    And if you are going to try the cops, and whites in the media. Than try the families of the victims too. Where are the families during all the arrests? Were they even part of the victims life? Did they do anything to stop the continual criminal behavior and drug abuse that lead to the deaths? What is the victims medical history?

    This nation needs to get back to basics. Show some honor and respect for others and their property. They worked for it. You didn’t. Respect the cops. Who in their right mind would run from a cop? Seriously?

    We have too many people in this country who have no respect for our nation or anything else period.

    Gee…we wouldn’t want to be too harsh and hurt the little ghetto monkeys feelings now would we ? Tell me again how much money it’s gonna take to rectify the damage these little bastards did ? you don’t have the balls to come down hard. Lets just do the usual slap on the hand and cut their welfare and food stamps in half. Then if that doesn’t cool their jets and stop this moronic hell raising then cut ALL of their benefits off ! Seems these little bastards played hard ball with the residents of Baltimore…..time to play by the same hard ball rules.
