Local News | Candidate who bashes U.S. aid got thousands in subsidies for farm | Seattle Times Newspaper
Meet Clint Didier: the newest Tea Party candidate for the senate. Didier, a former tight end for the Washington Redskins is running for the senate position in Washington state. Didier has repeatedly bashed the government calling Obama’s administration a “Marxist utopia Democrats want to create” — “where everyone is taken care of from womb to tomb.” Mighty strong words from a man who received nearly $273,000 in federal farm subsidies since 1995, according to the Seattle Times.
He has also stated that America has gotten “lazy,” and relied on a “work force coming in from Mexico, when the country should be hiring its own ditch diggers and fruit pickers.” Nice generalization Clint. I suppose next that you’re going to rant about the Chinese taking away American jobs in the dry cleaning industry. Or maybe you could bitch about the Irish coming over here and drinking all of our American alcohol.
If you want a bunch of racist gun toting hypocritical religious zealots forming policy based on uninformed bias, then by all means vote candidates such as Didier to office. We may as well switch to a monarchy and name Sarah Palin as our queen.
