Gentleman in Virginia Romney Office Has Novel Idea For Welfare Reform: Execute ‘Illegitimate’ Parents, Adopt Out Their Kids

by Doktor Zoom

It is time to teach those people some responsibility. By killing them.Clifford Russell, a nice man working in the Mitt Romney campaign office in Bedford, Virginia, has a plan to reduce this awful entitlement culture that we have here in US Amercia. During a visit from freelance writer Christopher D Cook., Mr. Russell expounded on a number of important issues, proclaiming that global warming is “a total fiction,” that the NAACP is “the most racist organization in America,” that “Everyone in Iraq under Hussein was a terrorist,” and of course that the best way to address poverty would be … well, let’s let Clifford Russell speak for himself, with Cook offering him chances to walk back or clarify his views:

I’ll tell you what really need to do with these illegitimate families on welfar — give all the kids up for adoption and execute the parents.”

I stare at him and blink in a glaze of shock.

Just to be sure I heard him right, I ask him to repeat it, twice.

“Yes, I mean it. Get rid of all of them, give the kids up for adoption, execute the parents, and you get rid of the problem.” (When I call him back to revisit the issue, he elaborates: “put the children up for adoption and execute the parents, and word would get out soon” that poor people shouldn’t have kids.)

When Cook points out that most people getting food stamps and other assistance actually do work, Russell explains that is no excuse for being poor, because our economy is structured in such a way that everyone should be an investment banker:

He tells me if they were smarter, like Romney, they would earn more money. “Obama got all his money through his charisma, Romney got his because of his brains,” he says. “Some people are just smarter than others, and not everyone is equal — but everyone has to pull their own weight and stop making excuses for being poor. Get up and do something. Some people just don’t want to work.”

Therefore, the working poor are not willing to work, those dopes. Why this liberal writer cannot see such simple truths is something of a puzzle to Russell, who also complains repeatedly about “inner-city people on welfare and food stamps” and then objects to Cook’s mention of “entrenched systemic impoverishment and disinvestment from black neighborhoods.” Because Russell only said “inner-city,” not “black,” he quite correctly accuses Cook of “trying to make this a racial thing, I never mentioned race.” Anyone who says Fox News is not educational clearly is not paying attention.

We will give Mr. Russell credit for this: He is a man who stands up for truth and accuracy in media! When The Progressive ran Cook’s story with the headline, “Meet a Romney Extremist in Virginia – A staffer in a Romney campaign office wants to execute parents on welfare and give their kids up for adoption,” he wrote back with an angry letter demanding a clarification:

I did not say that I wanted to execute parents on welfare and give their kids up for adoption.

I said that it would be better to execute the parents of an illegitimate child and put their child up for adoption.

He somewhat undercuts his point, maybe a little, by redefining “illegitimate children.” Most of us elitist liberals might think that “illegitimate” would mean something like “born out of wedlock,” but that is because we are snobs who cling to our dictionaries and socialism. Mr. Russell clarifies how a well-defined federal statute would set out clear guidelines for which children are illegitimate, and why they are a burden:

Some might say illegitimate children (children where one of both parents fail to provide for the child) is not even a problem, but an illegitimate child usually represents instant poverty and much misery. Illegitimate children are most of the need for massive health care/welfare programs that are a major burden on Society. The problems in the America school system are mostly related to illegitimate children where one or both parents could care less about education.

Those irresponsible parents should feel especially bad about how their illegitimate children have driven up the costs of the biggest parts of federal spending: Defense, Social Security, and Medicare/Medicaid. All we need are these common-sense guidelines to decide whether someone should be executed: If “one or both parents fail to provide for the child,” then warm up the lethal-injection gurney! (To be fair, Mr. Russell does not specify this method of execution; it may in fact be far too wussy). Also, it is a far better solution than killing babies or wearing little rubber devices to prevent issue:

I believe executing the parents is a better solution than the Democratic solution of abortion and handing out condoms (birth control). Abortion represents the killing of the only innocent person associated with the adultery or fornication that has occurred. Democrats have never explained how they are going to get people to use the birth control they hand out. Why should a man use a desensitizing condom when he know his child can get on welfare. I am still looking for a realistic method from Democrats and Progressive to deal with the problem of illegitimate children.

For all its exciting “let’s kill some people” appeal, which seems to be all the rage with some Republicans this season, we do have a nagging feeling that maybe there are other practical objections to this whole “execute bad parents” idea. For instance, won’t we need gummint bureaucracy to feed the kids and find adoptive parents? And will anyone want to adopt those kids anyway? After all, Pat Robertson has warned people that orphans might grow up all weird and stuff. We may be other-thinking this.

Ever the realist, Mr. Russell closes his letter with a couple of quotes from the Bible, because he is a Christian.

Needless to say, Mr. Russell is merely a low-level worker — perhaps a volunteer? — in a Romney campaign office. We would like to urge Mr. Russell to contact Mitt Romney to share his realistic plan with the candidate, who it must be emphasized has not yet called for the execution of illegitimate parents.

This dovetails nicely with the guy in Arkansas who wants to allow parents to execute disobedient children. No more CPS!

Willardbot9000_V2.5 October 11, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Yes, Romney had the brains back when he was nut batter to get into the egg first there by making him self made and completely intelligent. Never once in his life did his father use his position nor did Romney use his fathers connections to find wealth and opportunity. Never, ever, ever…he was a homeless child who achieved everything while wearing shoes with holes in them. Did I mention that I hate these stupid racist assholes?

Everyone knows how many open and excellent homes there are for kids who have been abandoned or taken away from neglectful parents in this country. Imagine if we could quadruple the number of kids who need new families! IT'D BE SO GREAT!

AbandonHope_ October 11, 2012 at 12:20 pm

I agree, Mr. Russell. But I think you'd be very, very surprised when the majority of those parents that are executed end up being in the rural South.

Not to mention, white.

He's an engineer. I have noticed something about people in engineering (and, for that matter, accounting) and their politics. By and large, they believe in simplistic, formula driven solutions to political, social, and legal problems.

However, I'm all for the chasing with samurai swords thing.

I can't snark, so I'll let Cracked do it for me:

So "anyone can get rich" isn't just untrue, it's insultingly untrue. You can't have a society where everyone is an investment banker. And you can't have a society where you pay six figures to every good policeman, nurse, firefighter, schoolteacher, carpenter, electrician and all of the other ten thousand professions that civilization needs to survive (and that rich people need in order to stay rich).

It's like setting a jar of moonshine on the floor of a boxcar full of 10 hobos and saying, "Now fight for it!" Sure, in the bloody aftermath you can say to each of the losers, "Hey, you could have had it if you'd fought harder!" and that's true on an individual level. But not collectively — you knew goddamned well that nine hobos weren't getting any hooch that night. So why are you acting like it's their fault that only one of them is drunk?

There. I feel better now

Some things just leave you speechless, don't they? How about we just extend the philosophy of "The Joy Of Execution" (Subtitle: I'm OK, You're Dead) and kill off all the sociopathic, vile, hate-filled products of the hate culture of the Right Wing Noise Machine and clear the air up a bit. With votes.

We (Liberals) have got to get off our asses and stop trying to see things from others viewpoints. Let's make a vow that when stupid people say stupid things we will not let it pass, and when they get red in the face mad and the spittle starts flying, we will laugh at them until they explode.

"I’m Not Interested in Finding a Truce in the Culture War. I’m Interested in Winning It. There's this prevailing attitude that the "culture war" is some kind of discussion that we're all having. But you know what? Fuuuuuuck that. I know this is divisive and counterproductive and inflammatory or whatever, but not all ideas are created equal. Some ideas are shitty, and I'm sick of coddling people with shitty ideas just because this country has a weird backwards boner for old-timey puritanical rhetoric. If the "culture war" were an actual war, it would be the fucking war at the end of Lord of the Rings. And I'm sorry, but Sauron ran Mordor into the ground, and I'm not interested in sparing his feelings. This is not something we need to discuss. "

I'm guilty. Living in Texas, I have ample opportunity to listen to someone mumbling about the obamalypse and I have too often kept quiet.

HouseOfTheBlueLights October 11, 2012 at 4:44 pm

This is something you learn when you're in a mixed marriage. People who don't know you, or your non-white spouse or your non-white children will say the most hateful things to your face because they figure, "she's white. She'll agree with my racist shit". And early on, you make nice and just nod noncommittally, and try not to "embarrass" them and just move the conversation on. And then after a few years, you say, FUCK this, and you start telling them you won't listen to their racist bullshite, and listen to them sputter and backtrack. It's beautiful.

Mr. Russell went on to say that he was hoping to adopt at least 3 illegitimate kids. "I need someone to vacuum, do the dishes, and wash my cars. Hopefully one of the boys will be tall enough to wax the top of my Hummer without a ladder."

Seriously, do these people not realize that prior to the Social Security Act people were sent to Poor Houses (work farms) and their children were put into orphanages where they were "adopted out" as slave labor? Ah, "the good old days, when things were simple".

What I am amazed by is the idea that anyone would be surprised to learn that people talk like this.

Well, if we can't get people to adopt them, sell them into slavery. Look how well that turned out for the African Americans.

“Everyone in Iraq under Hussein was a terrorist,”

No, they were all badgers. It was kinda cute, actually.

There's a word for this plan, what is? Oh yeah, genocide.

The Dead Kennedys were WAY ahead of this guy.

If there were ever a candidate for a machine gun skullfucking, I believe we found him.

"we do have a nagging feeling that maybe there are other practical objections to this whole “execute bad parents” idea. For instance, won’t we need gummint bureaucracy to feed the kids and find adoptive parents? And will anyone want to adopt those kids anyway?"

Also, if we execute all the lazy poorz, won't we have to hire illegal Mexicans and such to do the shitty, badly paid jobs that the poorz used to be doing, which is also bad?

Which reminds me, when I drove past the Walmart near my house yesterday afternoon, there was a line of strikers picketing! Yay!

tessiee October 11, 2012 at 1:56 pm

This guy is way too crude and blatant.
Killing poor people? How gauche.
What's wrong with just cutting all their social services so they starve to death?
No abortion, no birth control, and no child services are still honor killing, just in slow motion.
After all, why get your hands dirty if you don't have to?

"Some might say illegitimate children (children where one of both parents fail to provide for the child)…."

Look out Joe Walsh, Mr. Russell is comin' fer ye.

"Some might say illegitimate children (children where one of both parents fail to provide for the child) "

This bad news for Joe Walsh

Perhaps the problem is that all the decent male residents of that part of Virginia were killed assaulting Omaha Beach: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_D-Day_Memor

The irony and lack of self – awareness is ripe. Were this eugenics premised program initiated, Russell would be first among those purged. "Three generations of imbeciles is enough." Oliver Wendell Holmes

Now, gods, stand up for bastards!

tessiee October 11, 2012 at 2:31 pm

Kill the parents?
Isn't this sort of going the long way around your elbow to get to your thumb?
I mean, the parents can at least be sweatshop labor and/or cannon fodder.
We should bring back the killing midwives and killing orphanages, or just stick 'em on a mountaintop somewhere. I mean, it's not like the little bastards are fetuses any more.

Aren't most illegitimate births in red states? Just thinking out loud, here.

I'm glad the Republican Party exists. I'm happy it is an integral–and vital–element of our society and I applaud its efficiency and effectiveness at doing what it is designed to do: attract and contain the most despicable, repulsive, pedantic, idiotic and worthless douchebags amongst us, like this motherfucker.

The Republican Party is America's septic tank and there's where this fucking turd belongs. Please don't forget to flush.

HouseOfTheBlueLights October 11, 2012 at 4:45 pm

um, with votes.

subsum October 11, 2012 at 4:50 pm

Yup. Pull the lever (or press the button).

anniegetyerfun October 11, 2012 at 3:24 pm

Strange. All the neglectful fuckwit parents that I ever knew were located in small, meth-addled towns, not in the inner city. But just to be clear, we're only executing inner city bad parents, right? Who are not NECESSARILY BLACK?

LACorvus October 11, 2012 at 3:59 pm

I would have asked if he meant this in the same vane as Jonathon Swift, but I'm sure this guy would want to clarify that I didn't mean Tom Slick.

My total lack of surprise.

azeyote October 11, 2012 at 5:22 pm

why stop at illigit – why stop with children – just kill em all and let god sort it out with the rest of them filthy democrats laundry. that's the only way to get things done around this bitch.

This post would be 100% depressing if not for Responsibility Pony.

Needless to say, Mr. Russell is merely a low-level worker — perhaps a volunteer? — in a Romney campaign office.

Fortunately, the GOP doesn't have a history of catering to the most vicious and vile elements of their voting base.
