Fox News’ Kilmeade: Wants Unemployed to ‘Sober Up’ and Take a Job (Video)

July 15, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Republican lawmakers and the Fox News right-wing media machine, continue with their attacks on unemployed Americans. At a time of near double-digit unemployment, Senate Republicans have been filibustering the extension of unemployment benefits. The unemployed have been demeaned by Republicans, as hobos, drug users, lazy and spoiled. This morning on Fox & Friends, Brian Kilmeade continued with conservative attacks on the jobless, by suggesting they have been refusing choice job offers, so they can live easy on measly unemployment checks.

During an interview with Bill Auchmoody, CEO of Partnership Staffing, Kilmeade used the opportunity to attack Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) recent remarks that extending unemployment benefits is the quickest way to stimulate the economy and to create jobs.

Auchmoody provided the standard “get big government out of the way” philosophy and jobs will magically appear. “Less government–more jobs is my opinion,” he said.

Kilmeade agreed, saying: “Maybe the unemployment benefits [expiring] will get people to sober up and take some new offers.”

Yup, with eight million jobs lost since the near collapse of our economy and at least five applicants for every one job opening, these lazy unemployed hobos need to sober up and take one of those choice job offers that are being dangled in front of them.

    t sure is nice of Brian Kilmeade to offer to hire the millions of Americans who are out of work. I didn’t realize that Faux News paid their propagandists so much that they could afford to pay out millions of dollars a day just to keep Americans working.

    As a Christian, I do believe there’s a special place in h3ll for people like this, and that they’ll find the place quite familiar and filled with many of their friends and associates.
