Tea Party Senate Candidate Tells Unemployed To 'Get Off The Sofa' And 'Hang Up Their Free Obama Phone'
At a campaign stop in Wichita last week, Wolf implied that unemployed people are lazy and don’t want to work, saying, “Those who can take care of themselves and choose not to, my message to them is simple. They should get off the sofa, they should hang up their free Obama phone and they should get a job.”
He also called President Obama “the worst president of our lifetime.”
Addressing a crowd of about 50 people Thursday morning, Wolf called President Obama “the worst president of our lifetime” and pledged to work to repeal the Affordable Care Act and other Obama policies.
“I love the Lord our God, my firearm of choice is the Ruger SR-556, and I have hatred toward no man, only toward bad government that will destroy our freedom and destroy our future,” he said.
Wolf sparked applause and several shouts of “Amen!” from the crowd when he said people should work if they’re able.
“Those who can take care of themselves and choose not to, my message to them is simple,” he said. “They should get off the sofa, they should hang up their free Obama phone and they should get a job.”
Wolf’s comments echo those of another Tea Party senate challenger, Lee Bright of South Carolina, who in December said that unemployed able-bodied people “shouldn’t eat” and dusted off the old “welfare queen” myth, saying, “We’ve got a lot of people who won’t work. And they won’t work because we’ll provide their food, and we’ll provide their housing, and we’ll provide some spending money. We’ve all seen it, the folks in line who are using [food stamps], yet they’ve got the nicest nails and the nicest pocketbook and they get the nicest car.”
