Horror story writer Stephen King is well known as a major liberal, but this week he took to Twitter with the lamest, oldest attack against Republicans that can be found in the Democrat political playbook showing that he is not the one we should look to for fresh ideas.
On Thursday, King jumped to his Twitter account to unleash the most boring accusation there is against Republicans…
A Salon headline articulated a question I've been asking myself for years: Why are Republicans so mean to poor people?

Wow. “Mean to poor people.” Seems like a taunt a child would toss out there, not a bon mot by a 60-some-year-old man who is a successful writer!
The lack of logic and common sense from King’s fans was unsurprising. Some of the hate disgorged by King’s liberal fans was incredible for its lack of introspection.
It's the old "Christian work ethic" bullshit.

@StephenKing Gospel of Wealth. Much conservative Christian ideology actually believes poor people are morally inferior.

So, no one is responsible for their own destiny or success in life? In other words, forget working hard… you’re doomed!
@StephenKing it’s at the heart of everything they do. Horrifying to discover there are that many heartless people in your own country.

@StephenKing In my opinion many of them see being poor as a character flaw.

@StephenKing they can’t handle feeling sympathy, it makes them feel weak and icky, so they take a position of power instead

@StephenKing I always just assumed they were assholes.

But not everyone responding to King’s boringly rote attack was cheerleading for the left.
Right… that’s why GOP tend be more charitable & support capitalism which lifts more ppl out of poverty than any other system. @StephenKing

@StephenKing mean how? Because they would rather give poor people a hand up? As opposed to a handout?

Bingo! Now, there’s a wild and “mean” concept.
@StephenKing Your real question is: Why don’t Republicans ignore the means (govt force) for our dubious ends (that don’t actually work)?

@StephenKing Yet all of the impoverished inner cities are Democrat run. ?
