Daily Show Jessica Williams makes fool of Forbes Columnist John Tamny

“Food Stamps are Cruel.” Forbes columnist John Tamny

john tamny forbesIs John Tamny blind? Or does he always stare off into the distance without blinking? You have to watch this one to get a taste of it.  It makes the old Michele Bachmann deer in the headlights speech look good.

Feeding hungry people is cruel. There you have the whole libertarian wing of the GOP wrapped up concisely in just 4 words.

This goes well with FreedomWorks CEO and father of the Tea Party Matt Kibbe who wrapped up the Tea Party ideology in just a few words few months ago on Bill Maher.

“Why should I have to pay to support anyone I don’t know.” FreedomWorks CEO Matt Kibbe

BTW, the answer to both these nitwits is called CIVILIZATION. Republicans have other words for “civilization” – they call it socialism, communism and Marxism. Anything that gives a lift or a hand or a kindness to the least of us is communism. Pope Francis is a commie, Jesus is a commie, The EU are commies. In fact just about everyone everywhere other than here is a commie. Except Singapore. Wait, just found out that Singapore has universal state run health care. So they are commies too. And so I Massachusetts and Mitt Romney, and Ronald Reagan who let 3 million socialist Mexicans in! OMG!

    Nasty and snotty remark. Why don’t you just say he’s part black or Latino and he’s so dumb he stares into space?

      “Nasty and snotty remark. Why don’t you just say he’s part black or Latino and he’s so dumb he stares into space?”

      Tamny’s cruelty is extreme, even for a moronic and out-of-touch fat cat. It’s evident every time he opens his mouth. Oh yes, and he’s so dumb that he stares vapidly into space. But your reaction to the entire thing beggars belief!

      He says no one needs help, because there are no people ‘with distended bellies in the street’ – and your only reaction is to snit-pick RackJite’s comment to miniscule pieces, in an effort to turn it into a politically incorrect comment where one doesn’t exist?!
      ‘Can’t see the forest for the trees’ comes to mind.

    “Is John Tamny blind? Or does he always stare off into the distance without blinking?” is ableist; making fun of Tamny by comparing him to a blind person is not funny nor witty, but rude and unnecessary.

    Otherwise I enjoyed the read.

    • This is a case of taking political correctness way too far.

      “Making fun of Tamny by …but rude and unnecessary.”

      Congratulations, you figured out what “making fun of someone” consists of. It’s why we have free speech, because no one wants to censor speech they enjoy. It only matters when you’re pissing people off.

      You’re on your way. Now figure out why your specific objection is moronic and why you should be saying he should never make fun of anyone, which would undermine society as a whole. Yay for thinking things through.

      Also, mentioning reading the article is insensitive to the blind, you should feel ashamed of yourself. Right after they read Rack’s joke, they’ll read you commenting about reading and feel terrible.

      • All humor – other than puns – is making fun of someone or other.

    Extremely well put….. these people only hang out with other people of like mind…. what do you expect….It’s corporate welfare against public welfare…. that’s it in a nutshell. great watch/post

    • Good point. The right never mention corporate welfare when they’re talking about entitlements to cut – and it’s a hefty chunk! That alone, speaks volumes about ‘our’ values.

  • Rob Marson

    This guy is the poster child for “OUT OF TOUCH IDIOTS WITH POWER”. How in the hell did he ever get a job in the first place beyond cleaning “Johnny On The Spots”? People like him make this world a terrible place to live on.

  • Jessica Williams just wiped the floor with him, and he seemed to be as oblivious to it as he is to the hungry people who don’t exist in his world. Scary stuff.

  • Sally

    That guy evidently doesn’t believe his own sputum because he displays all the textbook eye movements of a liar!
