The liberal mentality is never on more open display than when Obama’s base has an opportunity to “spread the wealth around”:
A wave a looters followed the Sandy storm surge in Coney Island, creating a double-whammy for business owners trying to pick up the obliterated pieces.
The thieves started down Mermaid Avenue Tuesday morning as the chest-high water receded, turning the seaside community known for its hotdogs and tourist attractions into a lawless free-for-all.
“People were running in and out of Rent-A-Center carrying these big flat screens. They were holding on tight,” said witness Aisha John, 20. “I couldn’t understand how someone could steal a big TV in broad daylight, but no one cared.”
Why should anyone care? Obama has stolen $trillions from our children and grandchildren who will be left to pay off the deficit, yet many people don’t care enough to vote against him.
As with the Democrat Party, the theft is justified with the vile criminal ideology of the Left:
“Look, they’ve been looting our wallets for too long,” said a young male who claimed he helped himself to a TV at the Rent-A-Center.
Good thing Mayor for Life Bloomberg made the city safe by only allowing criminals to have guns.
“It was complete lawlessness,” said Ron Troyano, owner of Joann’s Discount Wine and Liquors on Mermaid Ave.
He said looters used tools to bust through his steel security gates around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The thieves then shattered his storefront and helped themselves to thousands of dollars worth of top shelf liquor, he said.
“They pried open the gate, broke the glass and went straight for the Hennessy and Grey Goose,” he said. …
“They broke right in through the roof while the cops were standing outside. It’s unbelievable. They were passing bottles down to each other from the roof,” he said.
Liquor and appliance stores aren’t the only victims:
“They were literally walking out with shopping carts full of merchandise. They didn’t even look worried,” a Rite Aid employee who declined to give her name told The News.
They looked like they were casually shopping,” she said. “They looked almost happy. I saw an elderly lady walking away with batteries and a bag of Kit Kats.”
Again: why not? They are told again and again by our liberal rulers that they are aggrieved; that property rights are meaningless; that those who have worked harder and acquired more are oppressors; that the world owes them precisely because they are useless and worthless. Then these same liberals disarm the law-abiding so that they cannot defend their property from the Obamunist hordes.
Just as there is no longer any stigma attached to welfare among its intergenerational recipients, there is no shame in more direct forms of theft. Nor is there much concern about punishment. This is what we are up against when we go to the polls on Tuesday:
Any law-abiding, working citizen who votes to endorse their mentality and to use government force to do their looting for them is a traitor not just against America, but against the very concept of civilization.
More glimpses under the rock of our entitlement society:
Until they are forced to take responsibility for themselves, the situation will only continue to deteriorate until the USA is indistinguishable from primeval jungle or hell. Only liberty is a stern enough master to teach the lessons that need to be learned. Liberty and the “safety net” that spawned this scum are mutually exclusive.
