A Fox News analyst on Thursday compared President Obama’s policies and government benefits to slavery.
During a segment on whether Obama’s second term is at a “dead point,” a term used by Abraham Lincoln, Fox’s Angela McGlowan began to discuss slavery.
“With Lincoln and Barack Obama you do have a slave mentality today. Even though we had the LBJ Great Society, we have a people enslaved on the government dole,” McGlowan said. “We have people paying for people to have more kids out of wedlock, paying for more people to go to prison, instead of getting a job.”
“So we do have a problem with slavery today, as Lincoln did back in the day. Even with LBJ’s policies, because you have certain people that want Obama-phones, free phones, free food stamps, and the whole nine yards,” she continued, citing a discredited story that Obama started a program to provide free phones to low-income Americans.
