Wingnut of the Day: Tea Party Candidate Jim Brown
Jim Brown (R), congressional candidate, published a post on how slave owners treated their slaves well. Who in their right mind would write such nonsense? Brown received backlash and quickly backtracked on Facebook. Slaves weren't paid. Medicaid and Social Security are benefits given to American citizens. How is people receiving food through the SNAP Program a form of slavery? Brown doesn't bother to explain. In Brown's mind efforts to lift people out of poverty are a greater sin than slavery.
