Republicans can’t stop comparing food stamp recipients to wild animals on Facebook

Oklahoma’s Republican Party shared a viral Facebook post comparing food stamp recipients to wild animals.

“The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing this year the greatest amount of free Meals and Food Stamps ever, to 46 million people,” the group posted Monday on its official Facebook page, reported the International Business Times.

“Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us ‘Please Do Not Feed the Animals,’” the group’s post continued. “Their stated reason for the policy is because ‘The animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.’ Thus ends today’s lesson in irony #OKGOP”

The group drew a mixed response to the post and afterward shared columns arguing against welfare by black conservatives Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams.
