Only on MSNBC can Mitt Romney be considered a racist for giving money to a black woman in need.
"You don't need actual programs that the government puts in place to help people in need; 'We'll just give them charity. The church will take care of them. I'll give them fifty bucks." Janell Ross later chimed in to lament the woman's thankfulness, including her thanks to God for Romney's assistance. I guess the panelists are ok with blacks being on the government dole instead of being helped directly by a person individual choice of giving."
I know the panelists are Marxists who subscribe to the notion that there is "economic inequality" and such, but these people are beyond being off their meds. Of course I would have chomped at the bit to have been a panelist on that show just for the sole purpose of embarrassing each and every one of them including Janell Ross and especially Joy-Ann Reid. This is my problem with intellectual fruit loops who support her way of thinking on this. They have a problem that Mitt Romney gave money from his own personal wealth to help another person in need, but they DON'T have a problem and actually support the government taking other people's money through taxation in order to give the impression that they are helping those in need. Progressives believe that the government's role is to be the nation's charity through forced givings by the taxpayers. Conservatives believe that charity is something that is voluntary and should be left up to the individual to give what he or she sees fit and to the causes they support. Every year I give money to the Salvation Army. I do it, because it makes me feel good, and I like the mission of the charity. I also do it, because I know that private charities are in the business of helping people. They spend donations in the most efficient manor possible in order to help the most people. They stretch every dollar. The government does the opposite. They waste tax payer's money, and the money they waste rarely if ever even helps the people that need it. I can fault Romney on many things, but this isn't one of them. The so called federal government's "War On Poverty" has been going on for almost fifty years, and there is no end in sight. The government always claims it needs more and more money in order to fight this war, yet it only leaves tax payers poorer and poorer. If Romney wouldn't have given that lady fifty dollars, then Romney would have been called a racist for not giving that black lady any help. Romney was going to be called the racist bad guy regardless of his actions. I bet Joy Ann-Reid had no problem with blacks in Detroit being joyful in 2009, when they "THOUGHT" they were going to receive free government stimulus money . Yeah, I'm pretty sure she had no problem with that. I wonder did they play into a stereotype according to her?
Giving money to a person in need out of your own wealth BAD, people seeking free money from tax payers GOOD, right?
