By The Right Scoop


On MSNBC, Clyburn said today that he believes Newt’s real agenda is, instead of actually wanting poor kids to earn money and develop good working habits working as janitors, that he really wants the poor kids working as janitors to be seen as servants by the rich kids in school. In other words, Newt is a racist KKK member or something.

Watch below, it’s short.

    Obama threatened to veto SOPA today and so it has been shelved, I heard.

    Regarding Clyburn: I simply refer him to the department of broken records. Those records that used to be made of vinyl, and still are by at least one company catering to folks who like records. I wonder if they can fix this guy.

    Ahem…”He’s spinning right round baby right round like a record baby right, right round” ;-)

        For Christmas, I got a turntable that converts records into MP3’s. How cool is that? It connects via USB to my computers.

        • CDS in Manitoba

          Yeah, I’ve been making mp3 files for my collection for about the past 9 years or so, too. I should probably make some FLAC files as well, but I don’t have any software for recording or playback of those kinds of files yet. I’ll wait until that format becomes more common before I make that jump.

    clyburn wants poor kids to be slaves to the government tit

  • Anonymous

    I grew up pretty poor

    Ya, and grew up to be ‘pretty corrupt’. So, what do we get from that, anyway.
    This kind of video leaves me with little to say of value, I guess.

    Besides, have you ever seen the rich kids being the servants of the poor kids? Sounds pretty stupid all the way around.

    I worked for a janitor, I wasn’t black, and I didn’t grow up resenting or hating it. It was good work for a teen.

    • Anonymous

      I would say lots of rich kids serve poor kids, in food kitchens, churches, community etc., in various ways. They do it to give back. Many are rich Christians.

      Clyburn kinda’ defeated his own premise with speaking about getting up at 4 AM to deliver, milk was it?

      Milk is white you wacist! Did you also deliver chocolate milk? My last two sentences sound nearly as dumb as most every sentence he ever utters.

      Get it? Utters? :-)

    Hmm… I distinctly remember Newtie saying he wanted them to own the job, you know, as in being a business owner.

    Once exposed they are done. Am I the only one who thinks that these kind of arguments have no merit and are getting extremely old. Everything in this world (Obama’s world) has turned upside down. Everyone who is not racist, the fact that they are not racist automatically makes them Racist. Anyone who believes you have to “WORK” and “EARN” your way automatically makes you racist. Yet everyone that is Racist (Like this guy obviously is) is not racist. All they can do is go around and point the finger at everyone ells.

    I am WHITE. I earn 15K a year in a part time job, I have no health insurance. I am overweight, I have had 3 heart attacks and I am middle age. I am not Racist. I am poor.

    I grew up poor, I don’t blame anyone but me. In the past I have made wrong choices that I am paying for now. I don’t blame anyone but me, and it is only me who can pull myself out of these situations. Even though I am poor, I am not on food stamps I do not take from the government. I try and support myself with what I have. IT IS HARD, but I make do, I have help and charity from others. Work for what you have or what you want it all is up to you not anyone ells or entity such as the government. I find it extremely difficult to listen to people such as this because I have had it just as hard or harder than these guys had it. The difference is I BLAIM ME.

      The ONLY people this “racist” argument holds water for are…ding ding ding! The RACISTS!!! Race-baiting only works on folks that WANT to believe they are a victim. Ever wonder why Whites have always been the “benchmark” for success in this country? It’s because we’ve never had anyone to blame for our failures!!! As soon as an entire race gets to blame another race for their downfalls, and force that race to “make it right”, they will NEVER stop playing that card. Just a simple fact, and even Charles Payne on Fox Business voted for Obama so he could be a “proud black man”…

    One of my friends is a Christian clinical psychologist. He worked his way through school as a janitor…and he earned a bachelors degree, three masters degrees and a PhD doing JANITORIAL WORK, which pays very well.

    Oh, yes, he’s a white guy and the son of a janitor.

    The problem with him according to the liberals, he wasn’t too proud to do a good honest, if humble job. He should have gotten a government loan.

    But he finished all that education a better way, without a big debt.

    I worked on a farm, in stores and other places and doing chores at home before I could drive.

    My first job was at my own high school as a janitor. I was on the track and cross country team at nights, and went to works afterwards. It was a little tough on the ego at first, but I had my own money, bought my own car, ’51 Plymouth, went to Jr College and paid my own way.

    There’s is nothing demeaning about work. Some of the most decent people I ever met were standing next to me with a broom, loading letters onto an MPLSM, cleaning an M-16 or building racks in a freezing warehouse; some of the worst sat next to me at human resource seminars.

    It is only the elitist who finds work demeaning. This man looks down his nose like a dog sniffing the ground to find a willing mate. This flat footed, bed-wetting, ignorant arrogant, trough-wallower is an elitist and he would weaken, demoralize, and get his own mother hooked on heroin or food stamps if it got him another vote. I pray that this sob keeps loads the deck with race cards. At some point he will deal himself the Ace of Spades.

    I hope someone is archiving videos of this man like they did for Hitler’s speeches so that those who come after us will know the face of American racism, bigotry and contempt. File these treasure items under the “G” for “Grotesque.”

    Strange. I worked as a janitor at 14 years old at my school. Then, OMG, I was a janitor again for a year or so at 17 years of age.

    Po’ po’ me just a servant of the rich. Oh, wait, that was a transitional / low skill job. As I learned more things and increase my skills I did other things and, get this, made more money.

    I guess that Clyburn is not considering how much teenagers actually like having money and most probably will hate just about any job that they have earlier on in their working careers. I think he is also ignoring that if you are actually good at what you do, regardless of the work, you will shine and either move up through the ranks, or move on to another job with open possibilities.
