Quote Of The Week?

My grandmother was not a highly educated woman, but she told me as a small child to quit feeding stray animals. You know why? Because they breed. You’re facilitating the problem if you give an animal or a person ample food supply. They will reproduce, especially ones that don’t think too much further than that. And so what you’ve got to do is you’ve got to curtail that type of behavior. They don’t know any better.”[1]
Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer of South Carolina – January 2010.

Bauer is running for the Republican nomination for governor. He’ll probably get it. This remark, among others, was made at a town hall meeting in front of over one hundred residents and state lawmakers.

  1. I saw a report of this yesterday and wanted to throw things – do damage….something!

    It’s not far removed from the kind of remarks coming out of Germany in the 1930s.

    I understand he has “apologised”, but too late – we know which way his mind works now…but will the people of SC get it?
    Let’s hope so.
