Adam Corolla chats with Gavin Newsom on his radio show. Newsom is the Lt. Governor of California, and the former Mayor of San Francisco. Newsom’s focus is on the struggles and suffering of Blacks and Hispanics, who are the face of welfare. Carolla says everyone must have a nest egg and close associations with family and friends in the event they need a financial hand or a place to shelter. Corolla insists that broken families are the problem, and says “you know the problem” but if you state it you won’t “get the votes,” and said Bill Cosby did the same thing, denied that broken families are the biggest problem. [You may remember that Cosby was excoriated by fellow Blacks]. “If you really cared you’d focus on the real problem – family,” says Carolla, and while Newsom tries to say struggling and suffering is complex, Carolla says, no, it is simple. Fathers, stay home, do homework with your children, like the Jews and Asians do. Seventy-five percent of of Blacks grow up without a Dad, says Corolla, and Newsom agrees but doesn’t think that’s the biggest issue. The really good stuff starts at about 6 mins into the video below.
Corolla calls Obama “your president, “Obama says it “takes courage” to raise a child.” Carolla is appalled and says “anybody can eat at an IHOP, but it takes courage to stay there and pay the bill.” Carolla wants to know why Newsom is focusing on Blacks and Hispanics, and not Jews, Asians.
Newsom goes on a rant about the Latino community which speaks Spanish as a second language. Corolla says yeah, “everyone who came here spoke perfect English.”
NEWSOM: I get your world Adam – a little more clean cut and idealistic, a little less pragmatic.
COROLLA: It’s wildly pragmatic. They have a problem with family, they don’t focus on education – that will get them out of the problem they’re in.
NEWSOM: I don’t think there’s any other community that cares more about education than the Latino community.
COROLLA: Wow! I’ll have to check their test scores.
NEWSOM: Come on, that’s not fair. Look at this school system. Look how lousy the school system is.
COROLLA: The system sucks, but it doesn’t suck if you have parents who are together and care about the advocacy of education.
Fascinating discussion pointing out how deeply disingenuous the Liberal protection of broken families and denial of absent Fathers and little education is to poverty. What isn’t said is that much of the poverty among Hispanics is their illegal presence in the U.S. Apparently it is far better to poor in American than in Mexico and Latino countries around the world.
