The hip-hop guide to liberalism: It’s free to swipe yo EBT [VIDEO]

I happened upon this satirical video from late 2011 and sadly there is still truth in its essential message. Now, if you want to call me a racist, feel free, but this is what the welfare nanny-state creates.

Just remember that under the Obama administration there has been an explosion of food stamp recipients — who get an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. We’ve seen an incredible expansion of EBT card acceptance and usage — far from the original intent of the Food Stamp Act.

You see, this is how liberal government works. A program is begun with good intentions, then politicians realize they can leverage the benefit for votes. It is the ultimate bribery scheme. Subsequently, fear and coercion is used against opposition – as we saw Republican Senator Thad Cochran do to his opposition in Mississippi — to scare blacks into believing these benefits will be taken away by those “mean ol’ Conservatives.”

The safety net has truly become a hammock, all at the expense of hardworking American middle-income families who are watching their wages dwindle and small business owners who were told, “you didn’t build that.”

To paraphrase Lady Margaret Thatcher, “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” With a misconceived sense of benevolence, progressive socialists make the populace believe they truly care, when in all actuality this is about the subjugation and destruction of the individual will. Why work? After all, as the singer says, “all you gotta do is ooh-ooh and nine months later, you got the big bucks.”

This is one of the fundamental differences between progressive socialists and constitutional conservatives: economic enslavement vs economic empowerment.

This week as you’re driving around, make a mental note of how many places where you see EBT cards accepted – I doubt they are many in Martha’s Vineyard. The progressive socialist vision is to create more victims. The American way of life is about making victors.

Point taken, but Oh Man! was that a HORRIBLE video. If you’re going to do a satire music video, at least make it listenable. Wow!

I think that’s the point……

This is exactly why all those who can not prove financial responsibility should be sterilized both male and females. As you can see the national experiment known as affirmative action has been a total failure

No put down to Allen. I’m sure he looks at these [ people / types] no matter what color and thinks of them as f’n AH’s who he wish would just disappear off the face of the planet. Allen is not alone. I can’t imagine what the rest of the decent blacks in the worlds must be thinking about these WPOS parasites, both male and female. Great post Allen. I have sent the URL to as many people as I could and asked them o do the same. The truth does in fact hurt as it should.

Someone please tell these whores they do better as prostitutes oh wait they already are for a free government hand out. Dumb fucks.

Read the article! It was SATIRE! I am sure these woman are proving the point of the easiness to get government handouts! Read before you speak!

Allen sorry dude that my interpretation of the video didn’t fall on your lap but hey you had yours and I guess is the one that counts. Now look above your belt yep that’s a belly button and much like you wouldn’t want, every “body” has one.

Thank you, Allen for your courage; it is not easy nowadays to be honest, truthful, and to have a desire to help some people to get out of poverty and proudly and honestly earn their money. I AM WITH YOU TOTALLY!

Great point made with the video. To bad that as long as there will be a “Hand out, instead of a hand up” this will continue!

Cruz

Allen, big fan and supporter of your page, but I have to admit, I thought this post was a bit beneath you and the higher quality message I enjoy from you. The point is extremely relevant but I thought something of higher quality is more your style. Just a trash video in short.

Trash video? Perhaps a documentary. I work in a service industry where I enter about 50+ low income homes per day. 4+ kids, huge plasma screens, electronics, iphones scattered about and so much food the kitchen isnt big enough. And most of them are spotless simply because they have alllll day long to clean it – and if its not, there apparently the only handout they didnt receive was a maid.

Well, sometimes the truth simply doesn’t look they way we want it to… So, we either accept truth for what it is or go hide our head in the sand.

The expansion of welfare recipients and EBT cards users is part of Cloward-Piven Strategy to destroy our base, our Capitalist System. Taking direct action to harm the Republic is making war on the People. This then is treason.

This reminds me how big American businesses take advanage of American tax codes and move American jobs overseas to pay less American taxes. They call that, econmanic empowerment. I bet the tax codes were deceloped with good intentions, then big businesses realize they can leverage the benefit for themselves .

When you hit the limit just have another baby paycheck… Hope you have enough room for all these blacks when it all gets shut off. its coming Earl Lee. It’s coming.

Please educate yourself and stop spreading MYTHS. I worked for the DIVISION OF FAMILY SERVICES and know what I speak of. After a certain amount of children…and in missouri its 4 kids…the AMOUNT NEVER GOES UP for TANIF! But I find it interesting when you say “ALL THESE BLACKS GET CUT OFF” like absolutely NO WHITE folks get government or abuse government assistance

There was a time I needed help. My father, a hard working man from his early teens until his death not long ago, encouraged me to get assistance until I could help myself. He said it would make him happy to know his tax dollars were actually being used by one who had paid many taxes herself. It was a difficult choice. I did get food stamps for a while. When I told the state I no longer wanted the assistance, they actually tried to talk me into keeping the food stamps. They really pushed the issue. I said I… Read more »

As long as you believe that all people on assistance fit the most negative stereotype, you will continue to lose elections.

So does that mean you’re in favor of restricting EBT usage to only grocery stores and only specific items at the grocery store? That is how it used to be. Now they can use their EBT cards at restaurants and liquor stores. You’re okay with that!?

Mathew Miller
Guest

You can not use your EBT card to buy alcohol, that is wrong. Nor can you use them at restaurants.

CharlesS702

No it’s illegal to do that. It’s also illegal to buy and sell crack cocaine but we all know that makes little to no difference. If you don’t think these Mom and Pop stores are scanning food and then selling alcohol, tobacco and all sorts of other things you are pretty naive. Keep living in your dream world.

Mathew Miller
Guest

Where is your proof that this is happening? Don’t just tell me if I think it’s not happening I must be naive.

CharlesS702
Guest

My proof is the hundreds of people arrested every year for EBT fraud. Open your eyes.

Mathew Miller
Guest

Maybe it used to happen but not any more. My sister has an EBT card. When you scan it and it’s not an approved item it does not go through and you get charged for it.

CharlesS702
Guest
There are Mom and Pop stores all across America who charge you $10, $20, $40, etc. scan a sack of potatoes and in turn give you your cigarettes, beer, hard liquor, etc. I still don’t see how you’re not getting this. It’s mostly the non-chain, neighborhood corner stores. They know the neighborhood and they have their regulars that they do it for and then act stupid if an outsider comes in and tries to buy cigarettes or alcohol with their EBT. This happens every day and I see it happen every day. You can look down from up on the… Read more »
Mathew Miller

How can they scan their card when it get’s declined. I still can’t figure that one out. The store can not just except it. It get’s declined. What do you not understand? It is programmed onto the card to not work when you buy items that you are not supposed to.

CharlesS702
Guest

They don’t scan it. That is the entire point. You don’t understand. Someone buys $20 worth of fake potatoes and they get their liquor or cigarettes. What part of that do you have a hard time understanding?

Mathew Miller
Guest

And your proof of this is where? If it’s there hey I’m with you. I just haven’t not seen that proof.

CharlesS702
Guest
Just off the top of my head I can think of Ahmad Damara, Mahmoud Damara and Muhammad D. Muhammad. I also remember the story of Jackie Whiton out of New Hampshire who got fired from a store because she refused to accept an EBT card as payment for cigarettes. I really think you need to educate yourself on what an EBT card actually is. I’m fairly confident that a 5 minute google search would bring up quite a few stores that have been black listed from accepting EBT or any other Government Benefits as payment because of fraud. In fact… Read more »

I saw the story of Jackie Whiton. I didn’t see anything on the other guys. I like to be informed, that is why I go to all different sites and tv. I like to know all sides. I appreciate you informing me. From my understanding the only way cash can be drawn out if you have other benefits on there. I could be wrong but that is what I read. I’m only going from experience since my sister has EBT. She has a disability so she gets EBT and Social Security. She has never tried to cheat the system but… Read more »

Yeah, I’m not trying to say that a large percentage of people with EBT for food stamps purchase Tobacco and Alcohol with them. I’m also not trying to say that a large percentage of stores that accept EBT perform food stamp/card fraud. However I have read multiple stores about the fraud that happens and I’ve known people who have had personal relationships with mom and pop store owners who have done this

Brendan
Guest

I am in favor of restricting EBT cards to only be used in grocery stores and only for specific items.

CharlesS702
Guest

Yeah except for the fact that grocery stores get robbed constantly in low income areas and have to shut down. This is the same reason why the blacks in low income neighborhoods try suing the US Government because the only food places in their neighborhoods are fast food and little Mom and Pop stores (owned by African Americans), that only sell things like chips, candy and other fatty, grease filled foods. This is the main reason why most of these corner stores accept EBT in the first place.

Mathew Miller
Guest

Where is this narrative coming form that you can use EBT to buy alcohol. That is just not true. Why do people think that.

http://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/mobile/benefits/what-can-i-buy.html

CharlesS702

No it’s illegal to do that. It’s also illegal to buy and sell crack cocaine but we all know that makes little to no difference. If you don’t think these Mom and Pop stores are scanning food and then selling alcohol, tobacco and all sorts of other things you are pretty naive. Back before EBT people were selling drugs, weapons, cars, clothes and anything else you could think of for food stamps. EBT has stopped a lot of it but your a fool if you don’t think it doesn’t happen all the time.

Earl Lee

Allen (leave my men behind) West…you are a total and complete disgrace!!! Tell me…what exactly have you done to UPLIFT the black community?? The only thing you do is tear down the black community to expand your POCKETS!

Mathew Miller

Exactly and people buy what this dude is selling. I may get a lot of flack for this but maybe if Allen West showed some love to the Black community he would be taken seriously.

Earl Lee
Guest

Notice how when the events happened…ALLEN (leave my men behind) WEST decides to post a video from 2011 that perpetuates the stereotype that all black folks are on government assistance….this is no coincidence

Mathew Miller
Guest

I agree. I had someone on here tell me people are out there buying alcohol and tobacco with EBT cards. My sister is on disability and has an EBT card, when you swipe it for anything that is not approved you get charged. Where is this false narrative coming from. Oh yeah, people like Allen West.

Last time I checked we live in America and it’s a melting pot. There are good and bad people within every culture and from all walks of life. Members from all ethnic groups in our country are eligible can and are enrolled in government assistant programs. With that being said I’m a little confused as to why the article is using a satire ( that is clearly making fun of a certain demographic) as it’s only reference to support a huge political issue. I couldn’t help but notice that only one stereo – type is being depicted and used as… Read more »

You can be stupid, well, you usually are, with your “liberal” rhetoric concerning the use of the “welfare” distribution concerning this sick video, but since Obama did not create the food stamp, or SNAP programs to help the poor, the it CAN’T POSSIBLY be his fault that its use has grown. I guess the fact that it helps thousands of families that don’t make minimum wage or barely make minimum wage and can’t live at the poverty level must be a fluke or coincidence. Not to mention some military families need that assistance! Is your sorry behind going to take… Read more »
Edward D Hutchinson
Guest

Too bad you don’t read into everything either Vincent. The point being made here is not to take away from the one who actually NEED the assistance, but to take from the ones misusing it. Republicans don’t despise those in need as much as Democrats want to misuse and allow misuse of the system to buy votes. Nowhere in the bible does it say to continue to give to those that are greedy. Even Jesus didn’t practice that… Get to know your bible better.

It is very unfortunate that so many people abuse the system, but remember, there are people who genuinely need help. I worked for almost 30 years, 20 of it as a teacher, until I became disabled and was unable to teach any longer. I am currently retraining in another profession (because I don’t like not working), but in the meantime, I have a family of 7 to support and my long term disability insurance (which I paid for) doesn’t cover all our expenses. I receive food stamps to help feed my family. If you saw me at the store using… Read more »

Sadly the average person receiving benefits gets in excess of 40,000/yr including the value of Sec 8 housing, food stamps, WIC, medicaid, etc. This would be the parent. That girl would be lucky to make minimum wage. I was so frustrated in 1991, when working for a big 6 accounting firm as a CPA, I made less before taxes in a 2500 hour year than my friend collecting benefits, by easily 10%. She didn’t have deductions from that money as I did for taxes, medical ins etc. I refused the temptation, I like to work and the self-esteem that comes… Read more »
