Obama Administration Uses Spanish Soap Operas to Push Food Stamps to Illegals and US Citizens (Video)

Can we call him the Food Stamp President now?
Or, is that still racist?

The Obama Administration is using a Spanish soap opera format to push food stamps on illegal immigrants and Spanish-speaking Americans.

The Daily Caller reported:

The government has been targeting Spanish speakers with radio “novelas” promoting food stamp usage as part of a stated mission to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), or food stamps.

Each novela, comprising a 10-part series called “PARQUE ALEGRIA,” or “HOPE PARK,” presents a semi-dramatic scenario involving characters convincing others to get on food stamps, or explaining how much healthier it is to be on food stamps.

The majority of the episodes end with the announcer encouraging the listener to tune in again to see if the skeptic applies for benefits or learns to understand the importance of food stamps to their health.

“Will Claudia convince Ramon to apply for SNAP?” the announcer exclaims at the end of a standard episode titled “The Poet,” “Don’t miss our next episode of ‘HOPE PARK.’”

The Food Stamp program is now the nation’s second-largest welfare program after Medicaid. About 17 million people received food stamps back in 2000. Some 30 million received them in 2008. Roughly 46 million people receive them today.

    Hey! Let’s increase the hand-outs! And add to this:

    The national debt has now increased by more than $64,000 per federal taxpayer since Barack Obama was inaugurated president.
    the IRS reported that there were 81,890,189 tax returns filed in 2009 that reported taxable income.

    If each of these 81,890,189 federal taxpayers were given responsibility for paying off an equal share of the new federal debt added since Obama was inaugurated, they would each need to pay about $64,219.88.

    If each of these 81,890,189 federal taxpayers were given responsibility for paying off an equal share of the entire federal debt of $15,885,854,755,351.47, they would each need to pay about $193,989.72

    The question is, do they run these commercials in English on other channels? If not, then that’s discriminating by favoring Hispanics.

    Barry says, “Thank you!” to all those votes he buys with his lies. But don’t forget the big bonus:

    He gets to destroy America in the process!

    Think Cloward and Piven — those Columbia years he won’t tell us about:

    The Strategy was first elucidated in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation magazine by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. David Horowitz summarizes it as:

    “The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The “Cloward-Piven Strategy” seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
    …successful offensives would create an ever increasing drag on society. As they gleefully observed:

    …this kind of mass influence is cumulative because benefits are continuous. Once eligibility for basic food and rent grants is established, the drain on local resources persists indefinitely.

    The next time you drive through one of the many blighted neighborhoods in our cities, or read of the astronomical crime, drug addiction, and out-of-wedlock birth rates, or consider the failed schools, strapped police and fire resources of every major city, remember Cloward and Piven’s thrill that “…the drain on local resources persists indefinitely.


    Count yourself lucky, indeed, if you’ve become part of the destruction of America. We have your greed and selfishness to thank…

    Tell me, where will you go when the USA collapses…? Hmmmm…?

    None of this is a surprise, but at this point the only way to fix the food stamp problem is to get RID of the food stamp program. Let people get help from family, friends, their religious institutions, neighborhoods, towns, counties, and, worse-case, their individual state — in that order — and get the people closest to those who need assistance involved and helping out. If we take care of each other, we won’t have these nameless, faceless government programs that fail every single time.

    Let me ask those who have plenty of money but chose to take *early* retirement Social Security checks…

    Did it ever occur to you that you might have played into the Left’s hands?

    I found the government worker who called me out of the blue awfully eager to start writing me checks…

    Friends – who’re adamant about voting for BO again(!) – have plenty of money and were shocked to hear I hadn’t done what they’d done: take those checks…and later refused to believe what was written in my above-posted link.

    frankly, i like good telenovelas (provided with subtitles my Spanish is rusty) but if I were a spanish person I would feel insulted when the president suggests i go on a handout because of health or any other reason he’s just encouraging people to seek handouts and not try to get out of it as if spanish people were those same simply “lazy shiftless Mexicans etc” that some Americans judge them to be..Isn’t he sort of enforcing negative stereotypes of Latino groups our so called “Lightworker” and “Uniter”?

  • l.barney

    sorry about the spelling and grammar, I am just so ANGRY at yet another cynical ploy by this poseur!
