Today’s The New York Times tugged at AMERICA’S heart strings with a typical liberal, WELFARE-PARABLE about a former boxing champion named Iran Barkley.
Barkley, once a legendary pugilist, has been reduced to a shell of his former self, old, weak, and penniless.
From the liberal sob-fest…
“Mr. Barkley is now 54. It has been 40 years since he ran with gangs in his old South Bronx neighborhood, more than 25 since he knocked out the great Thomas Hearns — the first of his two victories against Mr. Hearns — and 15 years since his last sanctioned professional fight.
But after all these years, Mr. Barkley is penniless and says he wants to fight again.
“The only way I know how to make a living is in the ring,” he said.”
Hey Barkley, why don’t you get a real job, you lazy no good n…
…not a professional boxer anymore?
But Barkley is not the hero these commies make him out to be. What are they hiding?
Oh, look, it’s right here in their article, BURIED nine paragraphs in…
“A few years ago, he was homeless for a time, sleeping on subway trains. Now he has a government-subsidized apartment in the Bronx and gets by on monthly federal benefits, including food stamps.
But he says he needs another paying boxing match to help the family of his niece Nicola Barkley, who is being treated for lung cancer at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx.”
Iran Barkley is a welfare queen!
I had imagined him like this…
Now I’m imagining him like this…
…but also black, because most blacks are dependent on welfare, according to a study (that I just conducted of my own thoughts (which never waste their time reading studies)).
But as disturbing as our nation’s increasing tolerance of those who leach off the government’s teat simply for their own selfish desire to survive is, there is a more disturbing story here; one that the The New York Times overlooks entirely.
Why is this man named after one of the world’s most oppressive, dangerous, and backwards AMERICA-HATING regimes?
Could it be that this isn’t a story of redemption at all, but in reality, a story of a foreign threat infiltrating the American homeland disguised as a TRUE underdog story?
It wouldn’t be the first time.
“Don’t think I don’t know what you’re plotting La Fleur!!!” -Sheeplenumber1, during a screening of “Dodgeball”
But the The New York Times doesn’t even ASK this question. Instead the TERROR SYMPATHIZERS opt to RECKLESSLY ABDICATE their journalistic responsibilities and tell a story of HUMAN INTEREST, which no one gives a s*** about, instead of the HUMAN DANGER that were all in thanks to the OBAMA ADMINSTRATION’S refusal to deport anyone from this country, whether they’re MEXICANS or PROFESSIONAL BOXERS WHO WERE BORN HERE but are obviously plotting to carry out terror attacks.
If being named after TERRORISTS isn’t enough to prove someone’s a TERRORIST, then WHY THE HELL didn’t we put that in the Patriot Act?
It’s all because the HUSSEIN OBAMA administration wants to continue to KNOCK AMERICA DOWN A PEG, by being “tolerant” and refusing to defend our values against the AXIS OF EVIL!
They need to listen to the SENSIBLE VOICES out there…
“Chris, we need to BOMB Iran [Barkley] back to the Stone Age right now OR ELSE WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!! And, also we need to bomb North Korea, Putin’s Russia, that guy that messed up my name on my Starbucks cup, my in-laws, and that Chipotle that gave me diarrhea last week!!!” -Sen. Lindsey Graham, on “Fox News Sunday”
We’re waiting, O-BUMMER…
