Wayne Allen Root LOVES Donald Trump. Aside from claiming to be in frequent contact with the GOP nominee, he’s a major organizer for his campaign rallies when he comes to Nevada.
Appearing on Virginia radio host Rob Schilling’s show yesterday, Root discussed his new book Angry White Male and claimed that the country is evenly divided amongst the “maker and the takers” resulting in the middle class “basically paying, paying, paying and the poor get everything free, and it’s a disaster.”
He also thinks women who gain access to free birth control under Obamacare should have their voting rights stripped.
“So if the people who paid the taxes were the only ones allowed to vote, we’d have landslide victories,” he said, “But you’re allowing people to vote. This explains everything — people with conflict of interest shouldn’t be allowed to vote. If you collect welfare, you have no right to vote. The day you get off welfare, you get your voting rights back. The reality is, why are you allowed to have this conflict of interest that you vote for the politician who wants to keep your welfare checks coming and your food stamps and your aid to dependent children and your free health care and your Medicaid, your Medicare and your Social Security and everything else?”
Root then walked back his comments, saying people who receive Social Security and Medicare shouldn’t be disqualified from voting, but “in general most of the things I just rattled off should preclude you from voting.”
“Social Security should not, Medicare should not, because you paid into the system,” he continued. “But all the other stuff, all the other goodies, free Obama phones, free contraception — you know what? You can get them but you shouldn’t be allowed to vote, it’s a conflict of interest. Take that away, we’d win every single election in this country.”
