Feds Target Spanish Speakers for Food Stamp Recruitment
By Dave Blount
It isn’t enough for the federal government to roll out a red carpet for unlawful invaders so as to displace the American population with Third World peasants more comfortable wearing the yoke of socialism. They have to do it on our confiscated dime. They even use our money for ads deliberately recruiting Spanish speakers to get them hooked on government dependency:
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.
This isn’t just for new American citizens who haven’t gotten around to learning our language.
In addition to the Spanish-language outreach, the USDA is also pushing to get non-citizens enrolled in the program. The radio novelas overcome one of the hurdles the agency has identified as hampering participation: “lack of knowledge” about the program.
“Although many non-citizens are now eligible for SNAP, SNAP participation has been historically low among eligible non-citizen households,” reads a 2011 Guidance on Non-Citizen Eligibility. “In 2008, the participation rate for non-citizens was 51% and the rate for citizen children living with non-citizen adults was 55% as compared to the national participation rate of 67% among all eligible individuals.”
Illegal aliens are not eligible. But their children are. Wink wink.
Our rulers are deliberately importing and establishing a massive government-dependent underclass. Its political usefulness to those opposed to America’s founding principles is obvious.
