He's also upset that the library is helping immigrants learn English.  I'm pretty sure this dude screams "Learn English or git out!" to anyone darker than French Vanilla.

Let he who has not rubbed one out to internet immigrant EBT porn raise a sticky, crippled hand.

He should learn to speak English himself.

Them junkies and hippies and food stamps (recipients) and all, they use the library to look at drugs and food stamps (on the Internet).

That's a quote from Mr. Lindel Toups, chair of the Parish Council in Lafourche, LA.

...and not, as you might have expected, an unwashed homeless man standing on a street corner screaming at invisible people.

I honestly can no longer reliably distinguish between conservative politicians and the mentally ill.

Well if he builds the jail he can lock up all those Mexicans and hippies and thereby deny them food stamps and internet connections. He's a pragmatist taking in a broad view but you liberal Farkers just won't see it!.

"They're teaching Mexicans how to speak English." is one of the most mind-warping, wtf-did-I-just-read, pig-ignorant criticisms of a library I've ever had the displeasure of reading.

You pretty much have to use the internet for food stamps and stuff. In Florida you can't get unemployment without it. Where does this guy think they are going to do it, if they don't have a computer at home?

In Oregon, you can go online and file your weekly job searches to get unemployment insurance for that period.  Or you can wait on hold for an hour on the phone.

He wants to take funds from the library to build a jail.

Divert money from libraries to jails? Does the chairman twist his mustache while he comes up with his evil schemes?

Conservatives would rather lock you away and make you a ward of the state then for you to be free as a ward of the state and have an opportunity to raise yourself up out of poverty.

Even better, his son and grandson were thrown in jail in 2009 for meth and other drug charges. He basically wants to build a more comfortable home for them, as the one they're in is over capacity.
 
2013-11-15 03:25:56 PM
This is pretty much exactly what anyone who starts going on about welfare queens and junkies sounds like to me.  I'm sure some of them have reasonable points, but after a few too many yelling at cloud discussions it's all just blurred into this.

Then to take the people from the liberry and put them in the jail. It makes a certain kind of sense.

Because looking at drugs doesn't get me drugs, and I wouldn't take food stamps away from people who need them.

Everyone knows the main reason they switched over to EBT cards was cashiers at supermarkets were tired of getting semen soaked food stamps.

Isn't that kind of the farking point?

They don't know how to speak English, which (by and large) dooms them to be the poor, welfare recipient gang-banging thugs that you hate them for being?  Oh, and they'll steal the only jobs that a mouth-breather like you, the person who is saying the quote (because you're clearly not smart enough for a Mc-job, much less anything better), is qualified for.

Whereas if their kids learn to speak English, they *might* stand a chance in hell of doing better than a $14K/year job as a farmworker.

/75% of 3rd-generation Hispanic immigrants speak ONLY English.

The entire Parish, still recovering from Hurricane Katrina, needs your help today.

Oh get over it already.

There really is some potential underlying irony where people with no access to public educational resources will end up in the new jail he's looking to finance

In my mind their head bobbles incessantly while they herp the derp. As the work themselves into a lather their eyes begin to begin rolling at a more rapid pace until the fall on the ground and foam at the mouth. I can't not imagine it every time because the argue from such a self-unaware place that I am convinced they are in the process of losing sentience.

I think his point is that it is terrible to help brown people in any way for any reason.

" 'They're teaching Mexicans how to speak English,' the council chairman said in reference to Biblioteca Hispana, a Hispanic-language segment of the Golden Meadow library branch."

Wouldn't helping teach Mexicans how to speak English be a good thing? I thought one of these bigots' biggest whines was "they come here and don't even bother to speak our language".

There's just no pleasing right wing assholes. Don't even bother trying.

Except he can and he will. That library system will almost certainly be defended to increase their ability to lock up brown people. 'MURICA!

wow
appears he wants to grab money raised by a levy for the library and redirect it
bait and switch? or should that be considered theft of public monies?

It's Louisiana. They don't need libraries, anyway. Obviously. They're probably mostly empty, except for, I guess, the junkies looking at drugs and other people looking at food stamps. Because that's how it works. You go to the library to see those things.
