Hats off to baker Andrea Taber, who refuses to accept EBT payments for her expensive gourmet pies, getting her in hot water with the Braintree Farmers Market, which demands she allow parasites to pay for the pies with other people’s money.
Taber has refused the market’s request to all its vendors to take federally funded nutrition benefits for her sticky treats, saying welfare payments for essential foodstuffs are fine, but she doesn’t think taxes should pay for pricey, fattening desserts.
How could even moonbats argue that those who work for a living should be forced to buy gourmet pies for those who vote for a living? Here’s how:
One welfare advocate said rejecting EBT cards could stigmatize the poor.
“I don’t want people who are victimized enough to feel they can’t go to a place like this and be ostracized,” said John Drew of Action for Boston Community Development. “The more you tell people they can’t do things, the more they feel bad about themselves.”
That is, we must be forced to give the moochers whatever they want, no matter how extravagant, or it might hurt their precious feelings.
Tyranny is always evil, but only liberal soft tyranny makes you want to throw up.
