"Starve 'em so they don't breed, see." --Andre Bauer

South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Andre Bauer says okay, he could have chosen his words more carefully when he compared poor people to animals.

Because he sounds a lot like a slaveowner talking about slaves?

So, what did the state’s current Lt. Governor say exactly?

“My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why?   Because they breed. You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.”

He is so going to hell.   Plus, he really does sound like a slaveowner with that “they don’t know any better” business.

(Do you know it’s true people actually can become infertile if starved.)

Bauer says he is standing by the principle of his comment because “South Carolina needs to have an honest conversation about the cycle of government dependency among its poorest residents.”

So, Bauer concludes because his depth of honesty compels him that starving people are much more likely to say, my poverty sucks.   Think I’ll go be a lawyer or a teacher and  jump on the fast track like the people on TV?   And when I come home from my middle class job,  I’ll sit down with my one kid and do homework with him so he can turn out like me.

His “honesty” says a lot about him and what he doesn’t know.  With South Carolina’s 12% unemployment rate and record number receiving government assistance, I hope the Lt. Governor finds a nice job at Focus on the Family or the 700 Club where his brand of Christianity will be appreciated.

  1. his grandmother wasn’t a highly educated woman? then she was of very little use to society, so who the fuck was feeding her?! 😡 i read about this this afternoon, and i’m completely convinced you have to be an imbecile to be a politician in south carolina.

  2. Interesting to note that most of South Carolina’s educational ranking statistics are in the middle to the bottom of the country.


    And their free lunch program is among the highest rated.

    Bauer of course stands by his comments, according to a later article, and while his state may need to have a ‘conversation’* about poverty, etcetera, the key point is that he chose the metaphor of ‘stray animals’ to describe the people he wants to govern.

    It might be worth noting that stray animals tend to have a couple of things happen to them if they survive the rigors and impoverishment of being strays: neutering and euthanasia.

    *conversation in Republicanese means “I got mine, and you ain’t getting none, and if you mention it again I’ll have the cops throw you in frigging prison, you worthless piece of shit.”

    • So if elected, Andre would be like the farmer. And the people of South Carolina would be his ultimate animal husbandry program.

      *The utility of prisons as a human pound in Andre’s mind occurred to me.

    • 🙂 In fairness to granny, we don’t know if she encouraged him to think of poor folks like stray beasts. Maybe he had a deliverance type uncle that saw animals as dating material or a cousin that regarded family reunions the way modern people view match.com. All kinds of twisted has to be there somewhere though.

      (Do you have a song for this, 0whole1?)

        • Well, no. Just because his gran hit him in the head with a few rocks doesn’t absolve him of personal responsibility for his actions. After all, if poor people are responsible for their poverty, and sick people are responsible for getting sick, which are the official Republican positions, then Mr. Bauer, insane granny or no, is responsible for his remarks and responsible for the brickbats being thrown his way as a result of his remarks. He is a Republican, right?

          Oh, to hell with the fine points. If you run into the stupid s.o.b. kick him in the head.

    • I think the current guy and this dude don’t care for each other very much. Unfortunately the adage “enemy of my enemy is my friend” falls down when the enemy of your enemy also happens to be a largish *ssh*le.
