MUST WATCH – Dem Rep. thinks spending taxpayer money is ‘giving to others’

Source: TheRightScoop

Yvette Clarke meets with Rabbis Sperlin and Slavin of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council.

Democrat Rep. Yvette Clarke actually believes that spending massive amounts of taxpayer money under Obamacare, better known as redistribution of wealth, is ‘giving to others’. Yes, she really said that. And she doesn’t understand why this would upset the Tea Party:

There will always be those in our civil society who, for whatever reason, feel like something is being taken away from them when we give to others. That has always been the challenge in the psyche of many in our civil society. You have to save them from themselves despite those inclinations on their side. …

We are the big-tent Democratic party. We are intellectuals and we intellectualize everything.

She even boasts about being ‘well educated in New York City’. Yikes! This level of stupidity would be funny if people like her weren’t killing our country.

She also manages to smear the Tea Party at the beginning of the clip, but I think that pales in comparison to her not knowing the difference between charity and government spending.

This is so bad it deserves our Liberty Facepalm Award:

  1. Op-Ed: Is Our Congresswoman a Communist? Says:

    Congresswoman Yvette Clarke, who has been representing New York’s 11th district – which includes Crown Heights – for the past 8 years, seems to have some communist sympathies.

    She is seen in the video below giving a speech about tea party opposition to Obama’s healthcare law. She says “There will always be those in our civil society who, for whatever reason, feel like something is being taken away from them when we give to others.”

    She seems incapable of understanding why anyone would oppose increased government spending in order to “give to others.”

    Does she have any idea where the money comes from?

    Apparently she believes – like a good Marxist – that all wealth is created by the government, and all she is trying to do is have it distributed more fairly. Why would anyone object to fairness!?

    She even boasts about being “well educated” in New York City’s public schools.

    This would all be much funnier if we didn’t owe China $15 trillion dollars.
