You Voted Them In
Today’s “Stupidest Fucking Thing I Have Heard All Day” prize goes to newbie representative Dave Brat of Virginia:
Rep. David Brat (R-VA) on Thursday, during a conversation with Lars Larson at the “Hold Their Feet To The Fire” conference, blamed Obamacare for moving America away from a free market system and making the country more like North Korea.
“Look at every country in the world,” Brat said. “Look at North Korea and South Korea. It’s the same culture, it’s the same people, look at a map at night, half the, one of the countries is not lit, there’s no lights, and the bottom free-market country, all Koreans, is lit up. See you make your bet on which country you want to be, right? You want to go free market.”
“We have poverty on the rise because we’re moving away from free markets,” Brat added.
Brat also said business was a “morally good calling” but lamented that that message wasn’t being taught in schools, which, he maintained was problematic.
Uh, South Korea has universal, compulsory healthcare. These dumb dumbasses just talk and talk and just lie or fucking don’t know anything. As John Lydon says, this is what you want, this is what you get. Now show up on Election Day and vote these ignoramuses out. Clean house, people.
