Whether Gavin McInnes was joking or not when he smeared Dominicans on food stamps and overweight poor people last night, his comments were in bad taste, to say the least. But what was even worse was how none of the others people on the Hannity show called him out on them.
The segment began with Sean Hannity playing a clip from Jesse Watters smarmy follow-up interview with Jason Greenslate, the California surfer/slacker foodstamp user Fox chose as its poster child for maligning the entire program last summer.
McInnes, one of three panelists, spoke up first. “This guy doesn’t personify the problem. I mean food stamps doesn’t even represent the problem.”
“He doesn’t?” Sean Hannity asked. “I see an able-bodied guy that’s more interested in his music than in gettin’ up and going to work like the rest of us.”
You see a middle-class, white surfer kid. Here in New York, Dominicans go to the grocery store with their food stamps and the barrels that they ship back to the Dominican Republic are available at the grocery store. But it’s more palatable to use this surfer than it is to use people who really represent the problem here and it’s not surfer guys.
As I discovered from Googling his name, McInnes likes to prank about race. But whether he was serious or goofing, nobody treated his statement like a joke. And nobody objected to it.
More tasteless yet was his response to Democrat Jehmu Greene after she argued that one bad apple is no reason to demonize food stamp recipients as a whole.
“Why not? Let’s demonize them!” McInnes broke in. “Have you seen the poor? They’re gigantic. They’re overfed. There’s enough food and enough clothes in America. We’re full. I’d love to meet (a hungry child). I can’t talk to them, they’re too big. They can’t get off their chair. …Have you ever seen a skinny, poor American child?”
I certainly hope that that’s McInnes’ idea of satire and not his idea of truth. But whatever it was, it was deliberately mean spirited. He never said he was kidding, no one acted as though he were kidding – and nobody objected to his making such offensive remarks in the first place.
This aging cafeteria Catholic stuffs his face with steak, clam chowder, booze, and other unhealthy foods.
Look at his gut. It sticks out like a 4-month pregnant woman.
To repeat what I posted in a previous thread: just yesterday, leading off his sad radio show, Hannity criticized the food choices made by those who use the “white EBT cards.”
A second after insisting that what other people buy in a supermarket is none of his business, Slanthead recited a long list of junk food (chips, ice cream, cookies…) that he sees them filling their shopping carts with.
I wonder where Hannocchio shops because based on the demographics of his North Shore zip code, I don’t imagine there are too many SNAP users nearby.
Hannity said these people should be eating healthier.
Yes, just like he does. And moments later, he told a caller that he just “loves Crown burgers” (obviously when he can’t get his fat mouth about a greasy Big Mac). I would hope Crown Burger (a small chain in Salt Lake City) also has supersized, over-salted fries and 64oz Cokes — we all want Slanthead to be happy!
Such a hypocritical sack of drek!
